    Firmware update for the Mercury

    Does anybody have any info on the "mandatory " firmware update that was just released from Huawei? Called Cricket, not sure they know it's even out there. Called Huawei and all they would say is " it makes the phone run much better ".

    About to root my Mercury so I'm hesitating upgrading.

    However, the rep from Huawei did confirm a new high-end phone with 4.0 coming very soon.

    Not 100% sure but i think the OTA Update fixes Security holes, Major bugs (Not the ones you squish), and Better performance.

    You can try the update, if it doesnt meet your needs just rooting using my method and installing my roms can make it better anywho. The choice is yours. also can you send me a link to that update? Once downloaded it should be in your SDcard somewhere.


    Goodluck

    If you are going to root anyway, it doesn't matter

    The firmware is to fix the bugs caused by the muve updates that caused everyones phones to go haywire, since many of us merc users had already rooted and used one of the ROMS from here it didn't really affect us.

    Thanks for the response..

    I'll send you a link if I can find it. Also, I would love to use your root method, but I only have my Mercury and an Android Tablet and no desire for a laptop just to root my Mercury. There are some other options to root without a computer, but none seem to work for the Mercury?

    Thanks.

    I also am curious to this update. I rooted my phone before the first update came out...

    If I update to this new firmware, will it ruin my root that I have?
    Or do I unroot -> update -> root again??

    UPDATE: Here is a screenshot of what the update details are. Please let me know if I have to unroot before rooting again.

    I backed up the update.zip without installing it. It seemed to make my phone loose its mind, and forget how to connect until I did the *228. Don't know why. I could possibly throw it online for a couple of days on my FTP.
