So this is the easiest and the safest way to upgrade your phone (new ROM Android), install GAPPS and Root.


I have done this with (B544) and (B550) U9508_EmotionUI_1.5_V100R001CHNC00B550 Android 4.1.2, so you also can do this with B628 and B629 and others:

MEGA: https://mega.nz/#!TsoXGYba!bLemytfZedBa7lgaqP6EUlN37A-Va4V-xrL3jjKmMjU

First update to B709 and then do a Factory data reset and a Erase internal storage (do not forget to make a copy of the backup (HuaweiBackup) on your computer or SD Card) and
then flash it to B804.



Ow and before you install a new Firmware on your phone, you first use the App Back-up to backup all your Apps (including Google Play Store and Google Play-services)
and contacts and SMS and more, then you installed the new Firmware.

Then you used Back-up again and installed all your Apps back on your phone including Google Play Store and Google Play-services, and now Google Play works and
you do NOT have to install Chinese recovery, so if you had a old Firmware on your phone before you installed the New Firmware, you do not need Chinese
recovery
, just use the App Back-up that came with the Firmware.


You don't need Chinese recovery to root your phone.

Ow and you need to press 7 times on the build number to see developers settings, in B7*** and above.

And put a copy of your backup on a Computer, and on your SD-Card if the App have not done that already.

You have to sign into gapps before the backup app will allow the option to backup google services.

Here is recovery6.0.1.9_AscendHonor2.exe:

GAPPS

https://mega.co.nz/#!0lUkgYqL!LtoCVV5nbbb7WOxbi4J3HAFWnGUlz2KxjslfoeVFRkw Android 4.2.2.

Here is SuperSU 0.99:

This is how you Replace Chinese Recovery with original recovery

1. Go to Settings and go to Developer options, and enable USB debugging.
2. Plug the phone in the computer, and Choose USB storage device (or Media device (MTP).
3. Restart phone and boot phone with Power & - volume
4. Open Recovery6.0.1.9_AscendHonor2.exe.
5. Now press 2 for The original recovery (1 is Chinese recovery), and press Enter.
6. If all is OK, the program will do its job and Reboot into FASTBOOT MOD, then he Flash the selected recovery and then he reboot the device 2 times.
7. Now your selected recovery have been installed.


Before starting the firmware you need to have:

If you unlocked the boatloader you cannot use official updates (Firmwares) from Huawei.

1. SD card of at least 2GB
2. Phone with a charged battery at least 50%

1. Plug the phone in the computer.
2. Unpack the archive with the firmware and throw dload folder to the root of the memory card.
3. Unplug the phone from the computer.
4. In the phone menu - Settings - Storage - Software Update - SD card Upgrade (or Settings - About phone -
System update - (Local update) Update via SD Card).
5.The phone will reboot and begin the upgrade process and you will see the following picture (be patient it can take a few minutes).

If you see a lot of Chinese letters after you boot, it means that you have installed Chinese recovery with recovery6.0.1.9_AscendHonor2.exe,
and you have to replace Chinese Recovery like you see above.


First backup all your Apps and your Massages and Browser history and Call logs and more with Back-up,
thats a App that came with your phone.


2454483.jpg


After the update the phone will reboot and start (also be patient).



Google Play Store

1. Connect phone to computer, (first install the Huawei USB Drivers) then put
GAPPS on you intern or extern Storage, now power down phone.

2. Power up your phone whilst holding Power & - volume.

3. Now your phone should be stuck in the "Huawei Ascend" logo, now connect to computer and run recovery6.0.1.9_AscendHonor2.exe
and press 1 and enter.

Then if he ask something about 1 and 2 option, and nothing happens do this:

Press CTRL+C then N. And it should start.
Make sure fastboot is OFF and USB debugging is ON


4. Now you should have custom recovery (woo), disconnect usb and remove battery.

5. put battery in and boot phone with Power & + volume.

6. So now you notice everythings chinese MYGOOOD, so do this:

Menu button 2 --> Menu button 1 [zip from internal memory]
Menu button 2 --> Menu button 4 [zip from external memory]

And select your GAPPS zip file.

Then a few seconds later GAPPS (Google Plays Store) is installed.

Then go back, Menu button 5 and then press menu button 1 (this will boot your phone).



Root your Phone

There are 4 ways you can Root this phone, first one is with Motochopper, and the second one is with AnzhiRoot_U9508, and the third is with Genotools,
and the fourth is with Chinese Recovery 6.0.1.9, do not forget to install the Huawei USB Drivers, and also HiSuite is useful to have.


It's easer with Motochopper and AnzhiRoot_U9508 and Genotools .


Motochopper

AnzhiRoot_U9508

Genotools

2. Run GenoTool.
3. Go to tab 4.

Chinese Recovery

Only works if you installed recovery6.0.1.9_AscendHonor2.exe, like you see above.

Download and copy CWM-SuperSU-v0.99.zip (or any similar SuperSU) to your SD Card.

Shutdown your phone, restart by pressing Power + Volume Up buttons until you enter CWM screen.

Menu button 2 --> Menu button 1 [zip from internal memory]
Menu button 2 --> Menu button 4 [zip from external memory]

And select CWM-SuperSU-v0.99.zip file.

Then a few seconds later CWM-SuperSU-v0.99.zip (SuperSU 0.99) is installed.

Then go back, Menu button 5 and then press menu button 1 (this will reboot your phone).

Pleas note that, you only get your phone rooted after this.


Removing Chinese apps

Only works if you have Rooted your Phone.

1. Download Root App Delete and start it.
2. Now select System Apps and then select ProMode
3. Now select the App and select Uninstall.
4. thats all now the App is uninstalled and is gone from your phone.

If Root App Delete don't work use Final Cleaner & Task Killer


I have done it and it's very easy, if you already had MoreLocale 2 on your phone and selected your language then he will go to your language
in a view clicks, and if you had English in settings then you also still will have that, also with ADW.Launcher or (i hear better) with
Apex Launcher you have your App Drawer and more back.


Why is my notification bar (panel) gone?

To have a working notification bar, there are a few conditions to be achieved by the rom:
-the file cust/channel/*countryname*/xml/hw_defaults.xml must contain two lines:
<integer toolBoxSwitch="1"/>
<string toolBoxDisplayWidgetNameArray="com.huawei.android. toolbox,com.huawei.android.toolbox.ToolBoxProvider "/>
-the file system/build.prop must contain the line: ro.config.hw_toolbox=true
-the updater-script must contain the correct symlink, like: symlink("/cust/channel/cn", "/data/cust");
When using an original update from a country different than the phone's country, there is no symlink made, so all the files in the cust partition are not
seen by the phone, which leads to no notification bar and other issues!
In a custom rom the symlink is forced in the updater-script, so if everything else is ok, everything works!
Also, if someone flash a rom of Batty86 for example, and clean data after flashing, the symlink leads to a deletion of the cust partition, so again we have
no notification bar and so on.

I hope it's a bit more clear now.


Change languages without morelocale2

To get more languages without morelocale2, you can look for /сust/channel/cn/xml/hw_defaults.xml on your phone (use Root Browser to select file).

Now go about 60% down till you are at Phone related, and then you will see:

<string white_languages="zh_CH,en_US"/>

And put between en_US and "/> your language you want, en_GB is British English language, fr_FR is French language, de_DE is German language, and so on and so on.

So if you want your Phone to be French you have to do this <string white_languages="zh_CH,en_US,fr_FR"/>

And also do that with:

<!--string white_languages="zh_CH,en_US"/-->

Wipe data/factory reset the phone once again, and you should have more languages at your disposal.

SO now you can choose your language, and never have to use morelocale2 anymore (until you reflash your Firmware of course).

You need root access for this.



Good luck everybody.

Then it sounds more like you are typing your Password or User name wrong, had the same problem also once.


UPDATE:
Have you ROOTED your phone, because GAPPS won't work without a rooted phone.

I have tried many things to fix it like these methods:
1- pull sim card
2- log into youtube, but it only comes to the same google login problem :S
3- factory reset
4- changing time

its really frustrating, i cant login to any google account, like youtube, playstore or gmail

Then try to reinstall GAPPS, or try a different one, like a new one.

Or just put the newest Stable Emui on your phone like i have done B544, works perfect on my phone, so must also work on yours.

Could you show us some screenshots of the rom and how many Chinese things are on it.. thanks

There are almost no Chinese things on it anymore, you can delete them almost all, and also disable them if you want.

Ok i will make some screen shots, and then put them here.

This is how MY B544 EmotionUI_1.5_V100R001CHNC00B544 Android 4.1.2 looks like.

So if you first install B544 it looks different, you can change everything you like, even how icons looks and so on.

After the update the phone will reboot and start.

There is some little problem with installing the B605.

After i copy the dload folder to the sd card, turn off, then (Vol + Vol - and Power) or (Settings - Storage - Software Update - SD card Upgrade)
it boots into Geno mod screen, with a lot of Chinese ****.
something like 7-8 options.

All this, instead of installing the new B605...
BTW, now i'm on MIUI.

How to solve this? If i do get it right, the recovery of mine is not the original, coz once i've installed it via recovery6.0.1.9_AscendHonor2.
But now, i dont know how to rollback to original recovery....

So sorry i don't know, i had no problems installing B544, i also installed recovery6.0.1.9_AscendHonor2.exe and had no problem installing B544.

Maybe THIS will help you, it's don on a Huawei Ascend C881 but maybe it will work on this phone.

    So this is the easiest and the safest way to upgrade your phone (new ROM Android), install GAPPS and Root.


    I have done this with (B544) and (B550) U9508_EmotionUI_1.5_V100R001CHNC00B550 Android 4.1.2, so you also can do this with B628 and B629 and others:

    http://www.emui.com/plugin.php?id=hwdownload&mod=detail&mid=47

    Here is B107 Stable (Android 4.0.4):

    B509 is the same as B550, but then with Google Play Store and Multi language

    Here is B703 Stable (Android 4.2.2 with EmotionUI 1.6) with Google Play Store and Multi language:

    First update to B709 and then do a Factory data reset and a Erase internal storage (do not forget to make a copy of the backup (HuaweiBackup) on your computer or SD Card) and
    then flash it to B804.



    Ow and before you install a new Firmware on your phone, you first use the App Back-up to backup all your Apps (including Google Play Store and Google Play-services)
    and contacts and SMS and more, then you installed the new Firmware.

    Then you used Back-up again and installed all your Apps back on your phone including Google Play Store and Google Play-services, and now Google Play works and
    you do NOT have to install Chinese recovery, so if you had a old Firmware on your phone before you installed the New Firmware, you do not need Chinese
    recovery
    , just use the App Back-up that came with the Firmware.


    You don't need Chinese recovery to root your phone.

    Ow and you need to press 7 times on the build number to see developers settings, in B7*** and above.

    And put a copy of your backup on a Computer, and on your SD-Card if the App have not done that already.

    You have to sign into gapps before the backup app will allow the option to backup google services.

    Here is recovery6.0.1.9_AscendHonor2.exe:

    4. Open Recovery6.0.1.9_AscendHonor2.exe.
    5. Now press 2 for The original recovery (1 is Chinese recovery), and press Enter.
    6. If all is OK, the program will do its job and Reboot into FASTBOOT MOD, then he Flash the selected recovery and then he reboot the device 2 times.
    7. Now your selected recovery have been installed.


    Before starting the firmware you need to have:

    If you unlocked the boatloader you cannot use official updates (Firmwares) from Huawei.

    1. SD card of at least 2GB
    2. Phone with a charged battery at least 50%

    1. Plug the phone in the computer.
    2. Unpack the archive with the firmware and throw dload folder to the root of the memory card.

    System update - (Local update) Update via SD Card).
    5.The phone will reboot and begin the upgrade process and you will see the following picture (be patient it can take a few minutes).

    If you see a lot of Chinese letters after you boot, it means that you have installed Chinese recovery with recovery6.0.1.9_AscendHonor2.exe,
    and you have to replace Chinese Recovery like you see above.


    First backup all your Apps and your Massages and Browser history and Call logs and more with Back-up,
    thats a App that came with your phone.

    After the update the phone will reboot and start (also be patient).

    Then go back, Menu button 5 and then press menu button 1 (this will reboot your phone).

    Pleas note that, you only get your phone rooted after this.


    Removing Chinese apps

    Only works if you have Rooted your Phone.

    1. Download Root App Delete and start it.
    2. Now select System Apps and then select ProMode
    3. Now select the App and select Uninstall.
    4. thats all now the App is uninstalled and is gone from your phone.

    If Root App Delete don't work use Final Cleaner & Task Killer


    I have done it and it's very easy, if you already had MoreLocale 2 on your phone and selected your language then he will go to your language
    in a view clicks, and if you had English in settings then you also still will have that, also with ADW.Launcher or (i hear better) with
    Apex Launcher you have your App Drawer and more back.


    Why is my notification bar (panel) gone?

    To have a working notification bar, there are a few conditions to be achieved by the rom:
    -the file cust/channel/*countryname*/xml/hw_defaults.xml must contain two lines:
    <integer toolBoxSwitch="1"/>
    <string toolBoxDisplayWidgetNameArray="com.huawei.android. toolbox,com.huawei.android.toolbox.ToolBoxProvider "/>
    -the file system/build.prop must contain the line: ro.config.hw_toolbox=true
    -the updater-script must contain the correct symlink, like: symlink("/cust/channel/cn", "/data/cust");
    When using an original update from a country different than the phone's country, there is no symlink made, so all the files in the cust partition are not
    seen by the phone, which leads to no notification bar and other issues!
    In a custom rom the symlink is forced in the updater-script, so if everything else is ok, everything works!
    Also, if someone flash a rom of Batty86 for example, and clean data after flashing, the symlink leads to a deletion of the cust partition, so again we have
    no notification bar and so on.

    I hope it's a bit more clear now.


    Change languages without morelocale2

    To get more languages without morelocale2, you can look for /сust/channel/cn/xml/hw_defaults.xml on your phone (use Root Browser to select file).

    Now go about 60% down till you are at Phone related, and then you will see:

    <string white_languages="zh_CH,en_US"/>

    And put between en_US and "/> your language you want, en_GB is British English language, fr_FR is French language, de_DE is German language, and so on and so on.

    So if you want your Phone to be French you have to do this <string white_languages="zh_CH,en_US,fr_FR"/>

    And also do that with:

    <!--string white_languages="zh_CH,en_US"/-->

    Wipe data/factory reset the phone once again, and you should have more languages at your disposal.

    SO now you can choose your language, and never have to use morelocale2 anymore (until you reflash your Firmware of course).

    You need root access for this.



    Good luck everybody.

    With thanks to maikzen, for how to flash GAPPS and octop and soudy1994 and Pimorez and vkukfor and androidxda how to Root and Batty86 for why the notification bar (panel) is gone.

    how can i install my original rom again ?

    Thanks

    Sorry been sick almost the whole week, and i am still sick, but what do you mean How can i get back my original bootloader ? in english ?

    What have happened, you have flash (B544) U9508_EmotionUI_1.5_V100R001CHNC00B544 like i have sad:

    1. SD card of at least 2GB
    2. Phone with a charged battery at least 50%

    1. Unpack the archive with the firmware and throw dload folder to the root of the memory card.
    2. Turning off the phone from the computer.
    3. In the phone menu - Settings - Storage - Software Update - SD card Upgrade (or Settings - About phone - System update - Update via SD Card).
    4.The phone will reboot and begin the upgrade process and you will see the following picture.
    After the update the phone will reboot and start.

    I do not know what is wronge with your caller ID because i still have caller ID after flashing to B544, and i don't use google account contacts because i like my privacy.

    i have tried to install a custom rom on my Huawei Honor 2 (u9508). It was sorex p631 v2. but when i booted afterwards it booted perfectly. then i tried to wipe data/factory reset so all my apps would be gone and i could install google play services (which was why i did this all in the first place). since it wouldnt boot i tried his (sorexes) softbrick unbrick thingie, but now i still have the same problem.

    Strange, but i am using a OnePlus One phone since July 2014, and sold my Huawei Honor 2 U9508, so i cannot check it anymore for you, i will try to update my links.

    If you done it precisely like i said on the first page it cannot go wrong, and means you did something wrong, because i did it that way many times back then, with absolutely no problems.

    But i see you used a custom rom, and that is your problem, if you used one that was made by Huawei i think you would not have the problem you have now.

    But like i said it can't help with your phone now, it's been 2,6 years ago that i sold my Huawei Honor 2 U9508, it's a old phone now, it was released November 2012.

    And the MEGA links of B709 Stable and B804 Stable still worked, and does two you had to use, not a custom ROM.


    Sorry i could not help you, why not buy a new phone, a good cheap and fast one, like the Lenovo ZUK Z2, or even better a Xiaomi Mi 5s?
