    if it worked then no you dont have to have linux. I run linux, so thats what I did it with.

    If you look at the about, you should see playfulgod@techygeek as the user and host the kernel was compiled.

    You will need a app like those I mentioned in the OP or setcpu etc to set the cpu speed.

    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?
    its not a hack, I edited the kernel src from huawei and compiled a new kernel and then packed it into the boot.img. This as is will not work with the ics leak.

    huawei has how to unlock it on their website, what huawei hasnt done it provide the password or even how to obtain it.

    Alright, awesome. I checked and it did say that. I put it on SmartAssV2 on Rom Toolbox Pro. Ill download the set cpu as well. Thank you very much for this. Even though I still dont notice any difference, this is just awesome. Thank you for spending your spare time with this.

    oh fine, if you don't consider THAT hacking lol. i personally do :P either way, tomato, tomato....how on earth would you type that out? O.o

    anyways, i realized that a while back. was looking through some stuff and found the boot unlocker page huawei provides....tried to request a boot unlocker for any random device and none showed up. seems kind of....a dick move.

    either way, couldn't you decompile the boot.img file and insert the tweaked files that way? you can view most apk files through winrar, i just haven't found any way to tear apart a img file. been looking into that for a while actually.

    as for the onandroid backup i talked about a while ago, it would seem it just makes a nandroid backup while the phones on... some people in the comments said it worked on the galaxy note 2 and the gs3. it has a pretty decent rating so it can't be all bad. if that worked it'd at least remove the need for getting a custom recovery on the m886.

    just throwing out some thoughts. lol :P also...isn't there some way to insert the numbers into the phone through a root text, and file manager? such as changing the build.prop file with rom toolbox? never sure how that worked.

    I just edited the source and compiled, no hacking needed really Huawei even provides the source.

    the mercury is a rare beast in how it uses the same partition for boot, recovery, and cust and as vfat at that. Which is why it can be seen from Windows Explorer. kinda of neat n nice, but at the same time very stupid and completely unsecured. Prolly why it doesnt work with ics.

    And how most devices unlock the bootloader is from fastboot with
    Code:
    fastbook oem unlock
    and in this case with a password added to the end.

    well from what i've seen on any device when it comes to hacking in general is there is just about always a backdoor...
    is there some way we could remove the password alltogether or is that a whole different field because i feel as if it is.
    i'm starting to understand a bit now. so this is special when it comes to gb and much easier, UNTIL it hits ics, in which case it's the same as any other device?

    so is there any way the boot unlocker for the huawei honor would work the same on the huawei merc? i know some of the files are different, but i'm not sure if that would effect the boot unlocker or if it would ultimately brick the device.

    this is quite annoying -.- just makes me hate huawei a little more.

    well its the OEM/carriers that make a pita, google/android has it all setup to unlock the bootloader easily, no fuss, no mess.

    And yea most of the LGs getting ics updates or releasing with ics has been locked down too.

    Far as the honors unlocker, I would just have to look it over and see.

    Well then maybe that would help. They are nearly the same phone, and that's where we got our ics root from. Not sure where you'd get the unlocker but there are custom roms for it so it's gotta be floating around somewhere.

    Message:hello, I was hoping that Huawei might add the M886 (Mercury) to the list of phones the could have it's bootloader unlocked like you do with these other Huawei phone HERE:
    Unlock Bootloader - Huawei Device Co., Ltd..


    It would be nice to have the bootloader unlocked, Can I get the password for my phone from you? here's my data for the passwor

    If you want to sell phones, in the usa, you better start saying yes
    to the dev community and no to the carriers...or your phones won't go
    no where..

    the formula to unlock the cricket merc is hidden away in Huawei's vaults...it's prolly pgp encrypted and rely's on your s/n, meid,and product id to unlock....it's a 16 digit alpha-numeric number that is virtually impossible to crack w/o the formula and is hard wired into the devices eeprom...I don't see it being cracked very easily....

    see:

    and checkout parts 3 and 4 as well...

    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.

    ---------- Post added at 05:17 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:12 PM ----------



    No!!! The kernel is packed in the boot.img which gets overwritten by the ics boot.img when you install the ics leak.
    Well that's what I said -__- make ics flashable, so you don't have to deal with ICS recovery

    well what if we find out this information of one of the unlocked bootloaders for a different phone and see if that formula doesn't apply to ours? if that's the case we could possibly have this cracked within a month. if it's a formula and not just randomly generated that is.
