Did you do a factory reset in recovery before rebooting?

Nope, just reboot into recovery (Power + Vol up) and do a ful wipe of everything except SD card and then reflash the ROM

Yeah, hold them down till you enter recovery. Up to 10 sec.

Luckily it's not too different from 2.2. Just a few more advanced settings and decent perf increases.

That's not something I have really played around with. Might be a better idea for a new thread in the Android froums.

Hi bradstewart,
I have been googling info about the Huawei X1 (U8180) in order to root and to change the rom.
I came accross this thread and just had to register!

Could you tell me if your ROM and approach will work on my Huawei X1 which is currently LOCKED to Optus Australia?  (Or is it only for those on Telecom NZ?)

Thank You

The latest version is generic so it should work without hassle. As always do a backup in recovery before flashing the ROM just in case something goes wrong.
