I downloaded it from the huawei international website. It is the same version that came with our phone in Malaysia. Here is the link : http://www.huaweidevice.com/tcpsdownload/d...loadID=NDM2NzQ= try a few times sometime it just went error maybe high load too many ppl accessing it.

Downgrading from ICS 4.0.3 prove to be simple if you have not used custom roms. Just place the UPDATE.APP file inside /mnt/sdcard/dload (create a folder named dload inside root directory of your sdcard) and then go to "System settings-->Storage-->Software Upgrade" and just follow through its instructions.

The same goes from GB 2.3.6 that you have replaced ICS 4.0.3 after doing the steps above. If you want to get to ICS4.0.3 back just go to the same "Settings-->Storage-->Software Upgrade" after you have transfered the ICS4.0.3 UPDATE.APP file into the same dload folder inside your sdcard. No custom recovery image needs to be loaded as these are stock roms directly provided by Huawei itself.

1. Unzip the file, it contain 'dload' folder which have UPDATE.APP file inside it.
2. Copy the whole dload folder into your root sdcard directory.
3. Go to your phone setting-->Storage and touch the "Software Upgrade" text.
4. Follow through the process. It will automatically start the downgrade process.
5. The file from Huawei site is Gingerbread 2.3.6 stock rom which until now I have not been able to do root and still searching for a way to do it. If I find any way to do it I will post an update here. So far only a few android device has been successfully rooted to my knowledge and research.

*Note : I have tried using SuperOneClick and Unlockroot but all failed. I read about a way to do it more technically like booting in a Ubuntu environment, upload Superuser to the system storage, etc. but I don't want to go deep into that.

Hello new Honor user here (technically not yet as will receive the phone this evening)

Was surfing this tread to find out more what to do or dl for the phone and notice there is no 'sticky' on the 1st post. There is also no 'owner roll call'? Mayb TS can compile an owner listing and impt info on the 1st page?

Anyway this being my 1st Andriod phone (infact 1st phone is 7 yrs!!! Was gonna buy the S2 last yr but didn't make it) What should I do 1st? I read that for honor, we should reroot the rom to GB from ICS?

Congrats to you! rclxms.gif

It depends on what you want to do actually. However I found that for a smartphone there are a few tips I can share.

1. Get a data plan. I read somewhere smartphone without a data plan is kind of a waste.
2. Which do you prefer : Gingerbread 2.3.6 or Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) 4.0.3? Gingerbread 2.3.6 officially comes with the current Huawei Honor, but there is an official chinese/English version of ICS 4.0.3 which you can download and try by upgrading it.
3. Get Onavo Data Count app, its good enough for me to keep track of my data plan usage and do custom restriction on what app should access the data plan.
4. Root or not your phone, giving you freedom to remove unwanted default apps in Huawei Honor. (Not recommended if you are really a beginner. Better read a lot first on the adv and disadv of having one.)
5. Go to Play Store/Market and download the apps your heart out and get a lot of sleepless night trying them.
6. Sync your email, facebook, twitter, whatsapps, instagram etc etc so you can be connected all the times.

REMEMBER TO ONLY USE THE WIFI, GPS, DATA, BLUETOOTH when you need them. Turn them off when you don't. You can get the phone to be alive without recharging for days if you do.

Try to download apps from Play Store when you are on WIFI rather on data plan.

*None of the list are in sequential order. I just list them as I think of them.

Many other tips which I might not remember to think of. There are friends here who are willing to share... just keep watching the thread.

Uh oh you did the Online Upgrade thing? Is it from ICS 4.0.3 B972SP2 to B977SP2? I almost did that too, luckily I became suspicious and cancelled it. I read it somewhere there are few issues with it, not being able to boot into recovery, no more fast boot check box, data network not working etc. if I am not mistaken.

Have to read more on solving the problem... maybe some other forum like xda or androidforum has threads in them relating to the issue.

Google it... maybe you can find some solutions.

i tried googling it and hardly anything came out regarding the play store apps.
as for the fast boot option, it is still there. ( i wonder why they put such an option there? fast boot is always better, no?) rclxub.gif

hopefully the bug im facing now is due to the new update and they will fix it asap..

not surethe new update got improve on anything tho.

this case you have to revert back to gb or if you could find the firmware for 972 then revert back to that. Is your phone rooted? If yes try using clockworkmod to install this http://goo.im/gapps/gapps-ics-20120317-signed.zip from sd card.

The other time when i faced this problem switching back to gb didn't help kept saying i've entered the wrong password for gmail when i tried to add my account what i did was switch to MIUI ROM, problem solved.

Ya, original GB ROM comes Gapps + notification quick bar, and default language is English. I also didnt check the build number then flash ICS already. Not sure which build number is the original ROM.

Those never flash and still using stock ROM can please check the build number?

By the way, if you want stable GB, I think the B876 from huawei china website is good and is rootable as well. By default it comes withtou Gapps but it can easily flash with CWM. The best part is after flashing the Calendar sync is still working properly! I remember there are some build version before this have problem with calendar sync.

Sorry then, I didn't know as my phone already came with ICS when I got it. I assumed that Huawei did put the stock rom in their worldwide site. Guess I was wrong. sigh...

I guess unless someone has done a complete backup of their GB stock rom that comes with their phone and shared it there is no actual rom being put out for people to recover except going back to the service center and let the tech people reflash it. Or... we can try ask them to put it out into the site.

Honor will serve you well. It is a good purchase. There is enough battery juice in it to last you the whole day even if you are a heavy user. I recommend using it stock for a while so that you get a baseline to compare in the future. I am among the first users and still feels the stock to be very stable and bug free. We are all looking for the official ics, of course.

The first post is kinda lacking, yes. I do agree.
