Okay got a bit further, but still nothing...
I am not able to make the folder cust in the media folder in the filesystem, anybody know why? Its just a greyed out option.

So I made it in a different folder that I could make a folder in and then I'm unable to ddlete any of the apks from the app folder inside the cust.img file. Anybody know why this is as well?

Using Project Voodoo's OTA Rootkeeper you should be OK.

Could you help me more detail about this project? The new update reminds me many times but after choosing Restart & Install, it's always unsuccessful! (My phone is rooted)
Thank you very much.

If you manually install this update in Recovery you will see what the install is erroring on.

So I connected my phone in pinkscreen mode to my ubuntu laptop, and I can see all the partiitons in the phone, like system, the recovery partition, the image partition, another partition which contains system, data, radio, etc, etc, and the internal sd card. I'm not exactly sure, but when I searched boot in one of these partitons, I got some .sh file ,bootanimation, bootanimationex and reboot. Any thoughts on this?

Looks like your software was updated and it can't be rooted if it has been.

when you turn on the phone you have a blue screen,that's right.

Ok,then connect your phone to computer,you should have an amovible drive,inside it there something missing.

for my huawei U8730 this drive is a folder named ".cust_backup" when i used root explorer.

Normaly it have a folder named "image",inside there's boot.img,recovery.img,amss.mbn,EMMCBOOT.MBN,cust.img

I have backed up it and i have replaced the files then pulled out the battery and turned on the phone,the phone boot normaly.

That's for my device your i don't know but seem the same problem

So i formated everything with ubuntu. all the 5 partisions, and stragenly pink screen is working, soo there must be a sixth hiden partision with bootloader. I hope someone will make a update.app for our phone. And i will never never buy their product again,  1.4 gh cpu, 1 gb ram and 2.5 android? come on huawei, really? and no support at all, Even lg has all the firmwares for free,

Samurai u have nothing to loose like me, If u want try this firmware, it didnt work for me, maybe it will for u. https://rapidshare.c...C397A2C850F90C9

EDIT : when i conect pink screen in minitool there is 12 partitions

I want to try a new method for the newest update. Can someone email me at mattlgroff (at) gmail.com so I can look into an unrooted phone with team viewer?

Sent from my SGH-M919 using Tapatalk 2

 

I have an unrooted U8680. I think I have the latest upgrade. The build number listed in the 'about phone' screen is U8680V100R001C85B845.

 

Do you still need to look at one?

 

EDIT - I guess I can quit being a derp and just email you like you asked.

thanks for the suggestion crazygrouzin, I will try it now, will edit this post with result in a bit.

 

EDIT1: i checked the buildnumbers and they match so I'm getting my hopes up! unfortunately I will have to wait until wednesday/thursday to flash it.

I haven't used this phone in a while, but I'm 99.999% sure that this phone only has 2.3.6. So depending on your buildnumber, this root method will work on 2.3.6.

Hey guys! It's been a while since I last viewed this topic. Since the bootloader is still locked, I was just searching up some stuff and I found this:

 

http://www.huaweidev...d=toApplyUnlock

 

It is an official huawei unlocking site thing where you have to give them your model number and stuff and they'll send you a password or something to unlock your phone. 

 

What do you guys think about this? Could it really work? Would we finally be able to flash ROMs onto this phone?? I really hope so! Thanks for your time. :)

 

EDIT: Oh nevermind...I guess that won't work because the product model of this phone is not available on that site...bummer. Sorry to get your hope up, you guys. :( But do you think it would be possible if we were to request this phone to have its bootloader unlocked?

@CrazyGrouzin I'm not sure because I don't know how to apply UPDATE.APP to the phone. Can you provide me with a little help on this?

@Lurker I'm planning to send an email to Huawei soon, I'll ask them about bootloader unlock.
