Huawei Honor 2 U9508 1G

Hi

New to the board and I did something rash and bought a Huawei Honor 2 U9508 8G 1G ram direct from China. Its arrived and looks great and even the camera is a pleasant surprise :eek:)

I have some understanding of rooting having owned a HP Touchpad and a Ainol Fire/Flambe but I am no expert and can easily become lost in all the steps.

So my question is...

Can this phone be de-chinesed? I have managed to root it using a tool from BinAry (how cool is that tool!) now I would be happy just getting a UK Google Play installed until the community gets hacking.

Any help appreciated (Mod please move to a relevant thread if necessary)


Cheers
Steve

root

better root this phone by using "root with restore by Bin4Try", if you are on stock 4.0 (it doesn't work with 4.1.2 on this device)

to get gapps including play store fully working just download latest ics version, unpack it and copy files using root explorer. or download
this and assuming you already rooted (and having hisuite or huawei usb drivers installed) connect the phone to pc and run install.bat, look at the display and allow su root privileges when asked

most of the chinese stuff are under /data/cust/delapp, just delete it

Great thank you, I hope it is that simple and wont brick the phone. This is the response from Huawei

Thank you for contacting Huawei device.

Sorry about because there has many different customizations in different countries’ carrier operators’ customized.

So you can’t upgrade your device which has bought in China to a oversea Android version.

And because of the law in China that all Huawei Smartphone which has sold in China all can’t support Google Play.

So your device which has bought in China also can’t support it.

Would anyone else (perhaps mods) +1 this to boost my confidence in the attached files ....

yes, they need to obey the law at least until they release this phone to international markets, however, technically they do support everything just fine, all languages and the rest, it's just disabled or removed, but you can update it to "to a oversea Android version" :) see attached screenshots

chances you brick the phone with root and putting gapps are very low, but the risk is still always there. however if you didn't alter the bootloader in most cases you can still restore this phone into a working state

you probably can try morelocale2, but I prefer to do it natively, it works well for me on 4.1.2 emui beta and I suppose it will work on 4.0 as well

find this file /сust/channel/cn/xml/hw_defaults.xml look for white_languages string, delete those lines with Chinese and English only, and uncomment white_languages where all languages specified.

it should look like this

Code:
<string white_languages="zh_CN,en_GB,en_US,pt_PT,es_ES,fr_FR,de_DE,ru_RU,it_IT,zh_TW,zh_HK,es_US,pt_BR,ja_JP,sv_SE,nb_NO,da_DK,tr_TR,cs_CZ,sk_SK,hu_HU,pl_PL,el_GR,et_EE,lv_LV,lt_LT,sl_SI,fi_FI,mk_MK,bg_BG,hr_HR,ro_RO,ar_EG,sr_RS,vi_VN,in_ID,bs_BA,uk_UA,fa_IR,th_TH,ms_MY,nl_NL,ko_KR,en_AU"/>

the only drawback is that you need to make factory data reset (no need to clear sdcard though) in order to make the changes to take effect.

remember if you break the xml formatting it may break something in the phone settings, so you might need to restore the whole firmware


Thank you so much for the fix.

Not sure about 32GB version, I've seen only 8GB ROM which can be extended with sdcard only, with 1GB or 2GB of RAM, which cost around $380 now or $30 more with express shipping.

As of root and 4.1.2 version, I've got that on some Chinese site, there's a dev there who making prerooted rom images for U9508 based on EMUI beta. But my phone came with stock 4.0.4 version installed by default. I've installed 4.1.2 myself and customized it a bit for my needs, including languages, gapps, etc.

apnoia, does greek (Ελληνικά) language work? Also, where did you find 4.1 rom?

Yes, it does have Greek in the menu, but I can't tell for sure if everything is translated well. Huawei customized 4.1 and added it's own launcher, and called all this EMUI. It's still in early beta and not publicly available though. I will make a guide on how to update to 4.1.2 but a little bit later.

If you've got this phone and want to enable your language in stock rom, try with "white_languages" method I've posted above.

My Experience with the U9508

I just bought this last week while I was in Beijing. The salesman sold that for 1900 RMB but after paying I found that it was a locked version and I had to pay additional 200 RMB for an export set. The normal China Mobile and other phone shops don't carry this model and can only be found in their geek pc/handphone commercial district. Even then the shops there don't carry physical stocks but must run upstairs to the export offices.

This phone has it's own Huawei Shop which is crap and the first thing is to root it with the Bin4Try method. Then comes the big problem when I tried sideloading the Google stuff. Everything installs but won't run. I found out that the root System/Apps folder is non-writable so all the stuff that I tried installing didn't make it there. In a separate thread I read about using the ES Root File Explorer and reset the file permission of that directory. Copy the needed files to the SD card first and then use ES to rewrite the folder permission and copy the files over. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hfam7mCOAAo)

Good to go! But only after much anguish since I did everything on my own without this guide. BTW, there's a very good app called APK Extractor from Play. This repacks installed apps on your old phone so you can email it off to your new phone to install when you don't have Play initially. I find that this is faster than loading from SD card.

It's not as smooth as my Nexus 7 but it's a really cheap and good quad-core phone. Yah the camera has a weird and unusual focal length. It's got a bright screen like Samsung too so that's a bonus.

apnoia I would really appreciate if you can put out your guide to 4.12 help.

gapps issue

Hi,
I've received my Huawei U9508 2G today \o/
I've got it from China, from an internet seller (merimobiles, to be precise). I didn't ask for it, but the first time I turned it on, it was already rooted. There was also a special installer for useful apps such as morelocale2, the google play store and google synchronization services.

I was very happy with it... until I've realized that some google apps just wont work. For example, Google+ tells me "Couldnt connect to server" when I open it, then I click OK and then it shows me the list of synchronized google accounts, I select mine and it goes again with "Couldnt connect to server" (I'm connected and can access other internet services...).
Mytracks asks to install "google play services" but when I do, I get an error: "incompatible with other application using the same shared user id". Google maps won't allow me to log in neither.

So I tried to reinstall the gapps using the method of the first post from apnoia, ... and nothing worked anymore, not even the play store... I figured this was because of the files rights. So after a busybox chown root:root *.apk, I have got the synchronization of gmail contacts, calendar and google drive working. But apart from that, I'm back to square one.
I also tried the script from apnoia with another image, namely gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip from goo.im but I think that's not better.
Now, there are some issues that I don't think I had seen before: right from the android's start, youtube, google talk and google partners services crash with no action from me.

Sometimes I have a notification: "permission required (for account [email protected])" but if I try to open it, it doesn't do anything. I've found another guy facing the same issue with the smartphone (www[dot]swedroid[dot]se/forum/showthread.php?p=1194895 -- I don't speak swedish neither, thats why I didn't reply :p).

I'd really like to get the google apps working well. No one has got the issue here ?
Do you think that a factory reset would fix this ?

Thank you!

The factory reset did the trick! Thank you :)
At least google talk. I'll edit the post if there remains some issues yet.

Well, for those who want to try the factory reset like me... Be prepared to have to configure the phone while it's all in chinese :silly:
Just kidding, actually you can change the language to english pretty soon in the wizard.. but still, that's a bit confusing for the 2 first screens...

Have you tried my approach to copying the Google files right into the systems/apps directory? That solved my problems.

The Beijing phone stall guy was surprised that a foreigner goes into China just to buy a China made phone. He definitely is not a phone geek.

Yes, that was kinda the apnoia's solution. Finally that's what did the trick but I assume there were some conflicts with the seller's softwares that prevented it from working before the factory reset.

Conclusion: if you've commanded your phone from merimobiles, don't waste your time, flash the gapps right away and factory reset the thing before installing apps on the phone...

    Okay, I bought the phone yesterday, and sincerely, I'm impressed. The hardware seems REALLY solid.

    Btw, I started the bootloader research. You'll get some news when I'll find something interesting... and in the meanwhile..... http://www.eternityproject.eu/page/...ternityproject-supported-device-huawei-ho-r22


    Thanks to everyone who donated to make this possible.

    So, it's a long time, but I did it.

    EternityProject's CyanogenMod is ready to be downloaded, but remember: this is an ALPHA release and it DOES contain some bugs.
    The bugs will be solved ASAP and probably in order of importance.


    You can find our ROM here: http://www.eternityproject.eu/topic/1107358-eternityprojects-cyanogenmod-101-for-huawei-honor-2/



    Enjoy!

    Rest In Peace my beloved G615

    Guys today is a sad day...
    Our phone (U9508) can't be boot-loader unlocked... Tried that today, at 1 AM and the phone died...:crying::crying::crying:
    Warranty here go!!!
    The procedure was made through CMD, flashing the little magic file that our great developer Kholk made ... and all went well until the moment of rebooting... It just didn't...:eek:
    Well I perfectly knew the risks and even so I've risked, it could have gone well but it went wrong, hell yeah, it was a really nice try with our friend Kholk "by my side" :highfive::good:

    For me for the moment no tries in new rooms :crying: just wait for an answer of the store and see if they give me a new one or a fix in my battle machine!!! That for the moment is on the machines heaven :angel:

    This once again, makes clear that unfortunately only Huawei has the power of unlocking the boot-loader...

    So for the ones that haven't done it yet " DO IT HERE " what are you waiting for???

    In the union there exists the power! :good:
