    [KERNEL] Plague kernel for the Huawei Mercury M886/C8860




    • Developer: Playfulgod
    • Description: Custom kernel for the Huawei Mercury M886/C8860
    • Version: v1.0



    Well folks, finally some goodies worth having for the Huawei Mercury. This is for Gingerbread!!!


    Added Goodness


    • Overclocking up to 1.9Ghz
    • Interactive governor
    • Smartass2 governor
    • Lagfree governor



    What doesn't work


    • cpu boots @1.9Ghz on first boot, but sticks after setting with a CPU app.



    Requirements


    • Must be rooted
    • Will need a CPU Control app (ROM Toolbox & System Tuner are nice ones )

    How to install


    • Have drivers installed
    • Download & unzip file attached below
    • Installs same as cwm
    • boot phone into download mode (pink screen), from power off, hold volume +/- and power
    • Connect USB Cable
    • Open Nautilus with root privileges (have seen it posted that Windows Explorer works too, but I cannot confirm this)
    • Look for the partition with 252MB and has images & Music
    • Open images
    • drag and drop the unziped boot.img and ok to overwrite old one.
    • Pull battery, re-insert battery and boot as normal.

    For ICS? And wouldn't it just be better to make a Cwm flash able zip, or port from another device? It wouldn't involve making an ICS recovery :P

    You know dayum well I dont do it that half assed way, so why even suggest it to me??

    I can build recovery for it all day long just fine, along with compile a 3.08 kerel, but no way to install it and it boot atm.

    And you have to know how to flash boot & recovery for this oddballed weird ass pofs. The way Huawei did it is just plain retarded.


    now I may be able to make it so the ics ROM can be flashed from GB via the current CWM. And if I do manage that, then I can compile a custom ics kernel.

    No!!! The kernel is packed in the boot.img which gets overwritten by the ics boot.img when you install the ics leak.

    Sorry if this is a noob question, but do we have to have Linux for this? I did it just as I installed CWM, open two windows one where this file is at and the other where the image folder was at and transfered the boot.img from the windows where this boot.img is to where the image folder is and rebooted my phone. and I dont see any difference on my phone.

    @PG

    i have been reading a bit on tools that were used to unlock the bootloaders on some huawei phones, the problem is the tools are made for GSM phones and as such ask for IMEI. now i am willing to test and brick one of my mercs if someone could show me how to convert MEID to IMEI (and yes i have been googling it for a while and not found anything on how to do it)

    No!!! The kernel is packed in the boot.img which gets overwritten by the ics boot.img when you install the ics leak.
    any possible way to decompile the boot.img from ics? you can find all that in one of the folders on the rom after you install it. recompile it after you end up putting in the hack? that way no need for any custom flash, just a simple reboot would suffice?
