How Do I Unroot After Using This method To Root My Huawei AscendY300

The bootloader stays locked, you can't install any custom recovery or ROM after rooting this way. To install a custom recovery or ROM you have to unlock the bootloader.

So I've found in an Italian forum, which describes a rooting method that doesn't require a bootloader unlock code from Huawei!

]This pack containes an Italian guide and everything you need for the procedure.
If you don't speak Italian, then follow my instructions. :D

0. Make sure fast boot is turned off on your phone
1. Extract the downloaded .rar file to anywhere you want.
2. Copy the "dload" folder to the root of you SD card.
3. Turn off your phone, then turn it on while holding down (Volume UP) + (Volume DOWN).
If the firmware update is finished you will get a green tick. The phone will reboot, be patient.
If you get a pink screen, then put the "dload" folder into the Internal memory's root to solve the problem.
4. Install unlockroot3.exe, then open it after the installation is finished. (Get a newer version of Unlock Root from ])
5. Enable USB Debugging on your phone at Settings --> Developer settings, then plug the phone to your PC.
6. The PC will recognize a CD drive. Install Handset WinDriver.exe from /drivers/adb_driver/.
7. Click the big, green "ROOT" button. When it asks, decide if you want "Power saver" to be installed to your device or not.
8. After the process is finished, it will ask if you want to reboot. Click Yes.
9. After reboot you should see Superuser installed to your phone.
10. If you get errors (camera, flash not working) or the screen looks like it's been washed out with bleach,
Then run install-windows.bat from the folder named "Y300-boot-B176". This should solve the errors.

This method is tested with the following firmware versions:
B164, B166, B169, B171, B172, B173, B174, B175, B176,
B178, B181, B184, B188, B192, B195, B196, B197, B199

Huge Thanks to Carontes from androidiani.com!!

Hit Thanks if it helped!

Thankyou , this method worked great for me . The trouble is I need to unroot because I need to take my phone (Huawei AscendY300) back to the shop I bought it from because there is an issue with the screen but I have no idea how to unroot ? Will a simple factory reset unroot my phone ? or do I need to unroot 1st then factory reset?

I was just thinking I wonder if my issues with my screen ( it keeps going sort of pixelated ) could be one of these 'errors'.
How exactly do I run the install-windows.bat ? do I just plug my phone into my PC and run it? or do I put the install-windows.bat on my phone and run it?

If all else has failed and you are in a panick try re installing the firmware and start again,when I killed my phone I successfully installed the b189 firmware using the update app method,if b189 doesn't work try a different firmware,I.e b186 or b199 and so on,a lot of these firmwares fail to install at step 2 of 2,Google it you will see what I mean

Need a little help with this guide!!!

Seems like this post is no more getting replies but i will try my luck. Also i am noob at rooting so please try to explain things in simple words. There couple of things i wanted to ask and didn't understand in the guide.

First of all will rooting my phone void my warranty. I have Y300-0100 one version. If it will void my warranty can i unroot it so that when i need to update or flash my custom rom i can do so.

Secondly where is the root of the SD card? And when i boot my phone in safe mode as mentioned in step 3 how will the update happen? Will it happen automatically or do i need to trigger it from somewhere. And you said that if we get pink screen we need to put the "dload" folder in the root of the internal memory. Where is the root of internal memory? And to put the folder in the internal memory do i need to open the phone in normal mode and use file manager to put it in the internal memory?

Thirdly you said in the step 6 that to install drivers. From where can i install these drivers? do i install them from the phone or the rar file you provided?

Fourthly how can i backup my stock rom so that i can restore it if somethings bad happen.

Fifthly i don't know if i am allowed to ask this or not so please forgive me and dont reply to this question if this isnt allowed, but to install modded apps do i need to root my phone or can i just install them without rooting?

Sixth i want to ask that can any one here suggest me a good backup app that back ups app data,not only the apk file but also the save game, settings and extra files which are downloaded within the app.

Lastly you said if we get error like camera, flash or bleached screen we should run install-windows.bat, from where can i run this, from the phone or the windows?

Thanks for reading and thanks in advance for any help. Hoping for a fast and satisfactory answer. Many many thanks and if all of this cant be answered can i ask this in a new thread in reference to this one?

Confirm working on build B164. Just need to use the install-windows.bat to fix the camera and washed screen issue. After that need to do a manual reboot to recognize sim.

How did you run the install-windows.bat? I mean did you connect your phone with the data cable to the PC and then run the install-windows.bat from the PC or copied the install-windows.bat to the phone and then run it?

I still cannot remove these progams.

Ik know it is a while ago this post but I hope to get an answer anyway.

I have rooted succesfully (I think).
I had the same issues with camera, but not anymore.
Now I want to delete these programs but how?
If I go to the app-info I cannot delete them. I can shut them down but there is no delete button.

Starting the SU appm there are no applications in the list.
With info it sasys I have 'outdated binary' tap to check for updates. But it failes on downloading the manifest.
And if I try again the SU app stops with error.

Does this mean it is not correctly rooted?

NO, there is no reason to unlock bootloader if you just want to stay on stock and clean out apps (just need root).

Camera not working after root is common issue and easily solved. Just read the steps of your root guide again it should have a last step that tells you to run a .bat file if your camera doesn't work and/or your screen is giving problems after root.

Hi!
The bootloader unlock code is different for everyone, there is no universal code that works for every phone.
Try to get into recovery mode with holding down the Volume Up button while turning the phone on. In the recovery menu do a factory reset and delete cache, it might solve your problem.
You can also install a stock ROM from Huawei. Check their official site for ROMs, that have a higher version number, than the one on your phone. Put the downloaded ROM into a folder named dload in the root of your SD card, then install it by holding down the Volume Up AND Down buttons while turning it on.
I guess that's all I can help with.
Cheers.

huawei ascend y300 in loop

hello, i know that code is one for only phone...i have tried many times to delete cache memory and restart/reset like factory.
i can go in recovery mode but after i have delete cache and reset restart the phone , logo of huawey appear on screen and donìt go away...it appear to be in loop....
i have also tried to install a original rom from huawei center but when i push volume up and down and power the phone say to me: that impossible to upgrade the phone the memory eecm is only in read mode, ...so i guess i must unlock the bootloader, and after install a recovery mode so i can try to installa new cooked rom...like cyanogenmod and so on...but without a code is impossible to do that....

Mostly you got 2 options - to get unlock code from Huawei's site or to overwrite/flash bootloader partition from SD card and then install CWM or TWRP recovery.
1. I used this webpage, for mine Y300..but official site it not working now :( .... this one works!!! But since you can not boot and read Product ID.... use 2. option
2. You can uses this thread, it also works for Y300.

Good luck with unlocking/rooting!

(Unofficial) SlimKat 9.0 for Y300 is also excellent choice!

Had you tried second option, it works on locked bootloader?
You want to say there is no even bootloader / recovery mode work, when you said "hard brick"? Any illumination of navigation buttons or screen backlight?
Update!
Try this option http://huaweinews.com/2013/07/root-huawei-ascend-y300/ with coping dload folder to SD card and starting bricked Y300 in Downloader mode! It should overwrite locked bootloader. After that can you start phone in normal mode (and continue with unlockroot3.exe) or flash CWM/TWPR recovery?

IMHO, apps in /system/apps can not be normally uninstalled, you need app like System App Uninstaller or System App Remover...

How you failed with dload method?! Did you got "a green tick" after its done or not? After that you still can not boot in normal mode?

Can you go to (fast)boot mode by holding Volume DOWN button and turn the phone on while keeping the Volume DOWN button pressed for at least 10 seconds ?!
Your phone should freeze on the splash screen (fastboot mode). If you can, try to execute UnlockTools/check_bootloader.bat ? And that unlock_bootloader.bat ? Or even flash_recovery.bat ?

---------- Post added at 01:01 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:52 PM ----------

At least, you can try to restore all stock/official ROM partitions (boot/recovery/system) and see if your phone is working or has physical damage. http://consumer.huawei.com/en/search/index.htm?keywords=y300

    So I've found this thread in an Italian forum, which describes a rooting method that doesn't require a bootloader unlock code from Huawei!

    This pack containes an Italian guide and everything you need for the procedure.
    If you don't speak Italian, then follow my instructions. :D

    0. Make sure fast boot is turned off on your phone
    1. Extract the downloaded .rar file to anywhere you want.
    2. Copy the "dload" folder to the root of you SD card.
    3. Turn off your phone, then turn it on while holding down (Volume UP) + (Volume DOWN).
    If the firmware update is finished you will get a green tick. The phone will reboot, be patient.
    If you get a pink screen, then put the "dload" folder into the Internal memory's root to solve the problem.
    4. Install unlockroot3.exe, then open it after the installation is finished. (Get a newer version of Unlock Root from unlockroot.com)
    5. Enable USB Debugging on your phone at Settings --> Developer settings, then plug the phone to your PC.
    6. The PC will recognize a CD drive. Install Handset WinDriver.exe from /drivers/adb_driver/.
    7. Click the big, green "ROOT" button. When it asks, decide if you want "Power saver" to be installed to your device or not.
    8. After the process is finished, it will ask if you want to reboot. Click Yes.
    9. After reboot you should see Superuser installed to your phone.
    10. If you get errors (camera, flash not working) or the screen looks like it's been washed out with bleach,
    Then run install-windows.bat from the folder named "Y300-boot-B176". This should solve the errors.

    This method is tested with the following firmware versions:
    B164, B166, B169, B170, B171, B172, B173, B174, B175, B176, B178, B181,
    B184, B186, B188, B189, B190, B192, B194, B195, B196, B197, B199
