Hi all,

 

i have flashed my U8730 (MyTouch Q) with the rom of U8681 and it boot,the phone works better on ICS

what's working almost everything and it's rooted

the device boot in landscape mode instead of portrait mode with hardware keyboard closed.

i have some problem with rotation sensor,need hardware keyboard to be open all time to have auto rotation work

 

how to fix that? maybe kernel issue. If someone can debug it...

 

So don't use ICS on Huawei U8730 only for U8680.

 

How to install the rom:

->download the rom zip http://www.mediafire...3u1/hwu8681.zip

->put it on sdcard

->download cwm recovery http://www.mediafire...c2/recovery.img

-> download boot.img http://www.mediafire...kqindf/boot.img

->put them in image folder into pink screen and delete cust.img

->pull out the battery and replace it

->boot in cwm pressing volume up + power

->wipe all: factory reset, format system, format HWuserdata, and format dalvik cache also.

->reboot device into cwm recovery

->mount system

->flash the rom zip

->reboot system and wait

 

PS: many thanks to IRX102 for provide me the update.app

PS: to fix auto rotation with physical keyboard we need to edit android.policy.jar and maybe framework-res

 

i post some screen

I tried to install the update.app for U8681 on U8680 (Huawei MyTouch). Firmware Update installation failed after going into download mode and unpacking. Is this how you did it? Any ideas?

as i don't have U8680, i haven't tested on it,just tested on my U8730 but i may work better on U8680 than U8730 because the hardware keyboard of U8730 make some problem that U8680 may not have.

if someone with U8680 want to test, i can provide the files.

I should install from the sd card in cwm, right? When I try to do that, all I get is "Can't mount sd card". I got to the last step and the phone won't turn on even with the old boot.img and recovery.img.

So I installed it, but it is in a boot loop.  :( . For some reason the recovery kept randomly rebooting.

:blink:  strange, didn't have this problem on U8730.

So maybe the rom isn't compatible with U8680

YEAH!!!!!!! :D  :D :D My phone is working perfectly under Android 4. Thank you magikstar29.

! The first thing I did differently than when it didn't work was replace all of the default files in "image" folder in download mode (see the top post on http://forum.xda-dev....php?p=44380191) for them. Maybe I needed cust.img. Another possible contribution to making this work was flashing the SuperSU zip from the bottom post on the same page from cwm. After I tried flashing the rom of U8681 again, it started blinking the boot screen every 2 seconds in a loop. So, I put the U8681 boot.img into phone in download mode (I had switched out the boot.img from both phones to see if that would help before). And when completing some other troubleshooting change, the phone randomly booted into Android 4 when I least expected it to.  :blink:

It works perfectly and MUCH better than stock.

worked!!! I put cust.img back on afterwards as I've modified it but it doesn't fix the keyboard issue nor the autorotate. but I can deal with those for a few weeks while this gets some work done on it. thanks so much for bringing this phone from the dead back into the distant past... google nexus 5 here we come!!

If you're able to get cwm recovery on this phone, can you tell me how you did it? The u8681 model doesn't let you modify anything while in dload mode exept to force upgrade. If you all have cwm working, there are some better upgraded adreno 205 grahics driver available to install for this phone that will make transition and graphics much smoother.

I noticed in your pictures that it was not in English.  Just to confirm what I already think I know, I can change it to english in settings, correct?  I have to admit I'm reluctant to do this, seeing as I don't have any stock rom to fall back on and I don't wish to lose all my apps and data and such if it fails on me.....Are you certain this will work?  Also, will I need to re-root the phone or no?  I have stock firmware and I am rooted.

Also, will the hardware keyboard force rotation regaurdless of auto-rotate settings, as it does in stock rom?  Also, will it work normally in portrait mode with it closed?  And the hardware keyboard still functions 100%, correct?  By 100% I mean caps and symbols as well as letters.

Yes, mine was default English. You can change it. You will lose all your data unless you back it up on your computer.  It should work, but I'm not certain.

No you won't have to re-root.

How to get cwm recovery: http://www.droidrzr....k-recovery-mod/. By dload mode do you mean when you press power, volume up, and volume down when off? This won't go to download mode unless there is no dload folder on the root of the sdcard folder with update.app in it. If you remove this, it should let you go to download mode and replace recovery.img

No you won't have to re-root.

What is your recommendation for a backup method?  I would prefer one that keeps my apps linked to the store but saves their data, If that is even possible.  I have a 32 GB micro SD that Is mostly free space and a PC, obviously.  What method would you recommend personally?  Thanks for the fast replies, btw.

in my screen,it's not in english because i'm french ;-) you can change the language in setting but by default it will be in english.

hardware keyboard doesn't work properly, need some investigation to debug it so it's not suitable for U8730.
