    I can't seem to find a root for this version. Going to try and roll back to 2.3 from the same site. Wish me luck! DM mode won't load as a drive in either windows or linux so I cannot restore CWM. I think I can get this thing working as a phone if I can get root.

    the answer is NO! .app is Huaweis way of updating ! As of like 2 weeks ago (last i looked) no one has made a way to compile a .app . . . it has been decomiled thought. But if everyone could just make there own update, that would be to easy. hahahaha

    you can try flashing via fastboot! think its powering up holding vol down and power? if not adb reboot bootloader will do.
    then try:
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    fastboot is the executable. Make sure u have fastboot.exe and its .dlls installed. GOOGLE IT IF NEEDED.

    flash is function/command to do in fastboot

    recovery is the partition. This could be different the merc, idk?

    recovery.img this is the fie name/path. Place the recovery image in the fastboot.exe folder then be sure to navigate to the fastboot folder so u can runfastboot in the first place =p

    I do NOT have the device, Brick at your own risk!!!

    Its not your fault erica! Its a common fact that you flash at your own risk! =p even i posted MANY times able in this post and other posted **Brick At Your Own Risk** makes me giggle alittle tehehehe. . . . if ppl are not sure of what there doing, they shouldnt mess with it =/ i wouldnt remove link as this if for devs and even learning devs ( That dont boohoo cry when they brick there device ) This is a good place to start seeing that u can Hard brick ur device by fashing it! Ppl need to remember that this DOES flash a new kernel and Oriax Rom replacement does NOT replace his kernal in his install! it is provided but not replaced! When i was messing with MIUI and CM7 i even had to go as far as going into QPST to put some data settings back to normal (RIM) setting changed the most. But yea, again, ppl that are trying to flash this without knowledge
    **BRICK AT YOUR OWN RISK **

    If someone flashes this Update, and adb pull /system/ C:\system and hand over the files, i can make it flashable thru cwm! i will also need the data.img from download mode. i dont have the phone to do so. eazypeazy =P

    First I want to apologize for the delay in replying to the thread. I had just gotten off work when I started this little journey. It was noon before I realized it and I had to work again that night. I just had my top teeth pulled early this morning so it has been an eventful couple of days.

    Second, Ericarenee I really REALLY appreciate your offer but it is far from necessary. I knew there was a high risk of bricking involved long before I even thought about trying it. I did a warranty exchange for $20.00 so no big deal there It was money well spent for the knowledge we gained.

    Some of the things learned

    1. THIS IS A CDMA ROM. I was able to make a call to try and activate the phone. Activation failed.
    2. Download mode installs new drivers which causes the phone to be shown as an android MODEM AND NOT A DRIVE.
    3. Bluetooth, GPS, CDMA, and Wi-Fi all worked
    4. It's Android 4.0.3 and it ran ooh so silky smooth. OOOHH I canít wait to get this!
    5. APN settings will not stick. I believe changing apns-conf.xml and mms_config.xml may very well result in working rom.


    I will add anything else I end up remembering. The pain pills are starting to do their thing
