How to Flash Android Lollipop 5.0.1 on Huawei G610-U20

The Huawei G610 is one of the most successful smart phone launched by Huawei simply because it is a combination of decent specs and an affordable price. So naturally you would want to root this phone to get the maximum out of this phone. Now, the fun part of you rooting your phone is that you get to flash any custom made rom.

That’s why today I will be showing you how to flash Android Lollipop 5.0.1 on your Huawei G610-U20.

Before you continue with the steps listed in this guide; you acknowledge and accept that any damage to your phone caused by your attempts to root your phone is your own responsibility. Appuals, the (author) and our affiliates will not be responsible for a bricked device, dead SD Card, or anything to do with your phone. If you don’t know what you’re doing; please research and if you do not feel comfortable with the steps, then DO NOT PROCEED.

Known Bugs:

Before you flash your phone you should know that this rom has the following bugs and errors:

Back Camera won’t focus

Front Camera’s view is distorted

No Signals on any Mobile Network

However, the flashing isn’t as sucessful with this phone as compared to others because most of the features stated above will not work. The developers behind this ROM are working on finding the bug and hopefully, the issues above will be addressed in the next release.

Installation Method:

First, you need to download the ROM from here

Copy the downloaded folder to the root of your SD card simply by connecting your device to your PC through a data cable and copy-pasting it into the root / folder of the SD Card (not in a separate sub f0lder).

Power it back on and boot it into recovery mode (Pressing VOLUME UP + VOLUME DOWN + POWER BUTTON)
