    Thumbs up Muve OTA *PATCHED* for rooted Mercury

    Muve OTA
    "M886_cricket_C153B8805"
    *Patched*





    For the rooted merc users youll get a "update aborted" due to the security Huawei added that checked each file then patches it to be able to update using OTA. I downloaded the OTA and patched it so you all can flash it using Clockworkmod Recovery. It worked on my 2.3.6 rooted rom so it should work for you. If your on 2.3.5 i advise you to update to 2.3.6 using my stock or Revokster rom as its optimized for less RAM usage.

    Note:
    When the installation is finished, you wont notice a difference because i was to lazy to edit all the files and build.prop, BUT i can assure you that the update did go through and the Muve application is installed as well. The OTA updates just stock applications, add Muve Music, and replaces files from the library.

    Instructions:

    Just install this through cwm recovery.
    Simple as that(;

    Silly question. Will this work without installing a custom ROM first? I'm still on stock firmware (2.3.5), but I have removed some bloatware, so I can't upgrade OTA.

    I checked Cricket's website and they still don't have Muve Music information for Huawei Mercury. Also, I went in my local Cricket store today, and there was a small poster, with I think 3 Muve Music phones, which included the Huawei Mercury, Maybe it's not being released right now in Maryland :|

    Here is how i got the update on me 3.2.6 rooted/cwm recovery mercury

    1 Made new backup with titanium backup
    2. Booted into download mode .. (Instructions are everywhere how to do this)
    3 Once on pink screen replace the recovery.img back with the old image.
    4. Booted phone into stock recovery (holding down vol up and power approx 12 or so seconds.
    5. Factory restore (reboot phone back into recovery)
    6. choose install Update from sd card.. (browser to the huawie download folder where the update d/loaded to )
    7 flashed the update.zip.
    8 reboot phone with the new muve music boot animation (will replace it soon yukeee)
    9. Go into Setting / wireless and network . go to mobile network settings.. Un check the following data enabled data roaming enable always on mobile.. .. EXIT out .
    repeat step 9 but recheck the 3 .
    exit.. NOW NETWORK WILL BE ENABLED AGAIN.. This also works after flashing a rom and no DATA ..
    10 run Ti and do a restore . and reboot..
    it sounds like a long but only took me 10 minutes tops..

    GOOD LUCK .. AND AS ALWAYS THIS WORKED FOR ME ON 2.3.6 TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK... Do not flash or alter any phone you can ABSOLUTELY NOT AFFORD TO LOOSE .

    You can repeat step 2 and 3 to put cwm back on your phone YOU DO NOT HAVE TO UNROOT..

    Too many steps for nooblets lol, but thanks for putting it up because some guides work for some and not for others. I just flashed my patch with cwm and got muve without restore or deleting anything so that works for me.

    I think its patching more then just just updating muve. One person says they were updated to 2.3.6. There was also a new rum put on huawei site for the c8860e on 4/6

    I wanted to see if i could get it to take the full update is why i did not just use your patch..

    Mercury



    Once again, brilliant job. Works like a champ. Not sure I'll use muve, but I like having the option w a rooted phone. With all the bootleg music available, I'll probably keep my 10 bucks. Thanks again Oriax123.

    Huawei Mercury



    I have noticed that My calendar app force closes when I try to open it, I am using the Stock replacement rom with the Muve patch, I have got older calendar apk to work but I dont like the look of them, so if anyone can rip the stock mercury calender APK and any other needed files I would appreciate it.

    EDIT: It appears that the apk for the calendar is only 320kb and all the other calendar apps are at least 1.xMB in size, so it looks like maybe the apk is incomplete or corrupt.....

    All the apps in both of my roms are optimized to take less space. Calender works on both roms. I've testes this after a fresh install. You can try fixing permissions though recovery under advance.

    If your on 2.3.5 then yes it's a patch that only updates to 2.3.6 plus muve. That's why its more than 70mb file size.

    If on 2.3.6 the update is 30mb and only adds few patches plus muve.mostly verification files to check if apps were altered.

    My patch is less bcz I removed what verifications it needed and just left the update plus muve by itself and edited the updater script.

    Just curious if this patch fixed the voice recognition problem, same as the update says it would do. Thanks for all the hard work for us root users.

    Man what am I doing wrong? CWM wont install and muve still not on phone.

    *Edit: Tried to download directly to phone. Didnt work (Im assuming because it was in the download file. Pretty sure that if you dont put into a file folder, it will work) Deleted file, phone as usb, place file in sd card, update zip from sd, worked like a charm.

    Thanks to oriax!!
