NOTE : I dont know why but after unlocking my bootloader i am not able to use any shell command :( seems like its due to busybox that was previously installed :( so be cautious before unlocking bootloader.

Hi,

are you able to use shell commands again when you re-lock the bootloader?
What did you mean with busybox and be cautios. Should we remove root account before unlock the bootloader?

Nah I even tried relocking the bootloader but still no luck :/ and yes its better you remove the root cause the phone automatically gets factory reset so it becomes a disaster :/ i still got my super su app with me yet no root and I cannot even remove it cause its a system app :/

Anyways might be that I did something wrong XD

After unlocking the bootloader, did you try just to re-root it with the original root method for the U8825-1? As far as I know this only flashes a small part of the kernel that allows adb root access.

I compared the stock recovery of huawei G330D and our stock recovery and they are quite different :/


Yeah I have seen many tutorials like these... but seriously if you want CWM better do it yourself... I cant try cause my phone is not rootable any more and i will have to go to a service centre and get my phone flashed :/ hopefully that could mean that there will be one more firmware file uploaded :D anyways best of luck if your going to try :D i will also try but it will take some time...

Hi,

you rooted the device before unlocking the bootloader? Are you able to "unroot" your device with unlockroot3 even it's not rooted at this time?
Maybe busybox will be removed with unroot?

Thanks

Yes my device was rooted. Yes i tried unrooting but it fails as shell commands cant be run. Yes busy box was removed and I think that its the main cause of the problem. I tried making a flashable zip file using the previous System dump but failed to very signature :/

i will try :D when i get my unlockbootloader code :D
or you can always provide me the stock recovery XD

Check the first post :D Happy compiling
