Did you find one of the many bugs in my software? Are you confused by my asinine instruction sets? Do you miss flashing marquee ads that mimic download buttons? Or would you just like to vent about my indifference to your individual concerns? If so, then feel free to leave a comment or question below. I don’t promise a reply, but it will be read. Issue reports lacking evidence — reproducibility steps and/or logs — will be tossed. You can paste logs at any reasonable paste site, e.g.,, or hastebin.

  1. I’m receiving the following error installing the LineageOS package:

    This package supports bootloader MSM8226C00B322_Boot; this device has bootloader MSM8226C00B147_Boot
    Updater process ended with Error: 7 installing zip file …..

    These are the files I used:

    Am I missing something?

    • Yes, your device is running firmware that is too old for both TWRP and LineageOS. Huawei stock OS B322 should be installed first (taking over the air updates would work). The original upgrade information from Huawei seems to no longer be available. I’ll put up a guide in the next few days for those who would like to start from scratch.

        • Please don’t spam my comments section (the other two comments you posted will not be shown). You found the firmware files, here’s the associated instructions:

          1. Format a 4GB or larger MicroSD card to FAT32
          2. Copy UPDATE.APP and UPDATE_VENDOR.APP to a directory named dload on the MicroSD card
          3. Turn off the device and insert the MicroSD card
          4. Press and hold Volume-Up + Volume-Down + Power until the HUAWEI logo shows, then release only the Power key (keep holding the volume keys)
          5. Release the volume keys when the phone enters Software Upgrade mode
          6. The update will begin automatically and reboot when finished
  2. Thanks for providing the security patch updates for the MT2, I hope you continue in providing them in the future, do you accept donations? Secondly, is it possible for the kernel to have the Conservative governor.

  3. Hi there
    i own Mt2 and i am so glad to find this page , just want to say thank you

    keep up the good work ,

    few things
    – cant find the cover screen lock feature like when put the flip the lid on it would lock auto ?
    – i am wondering is it possible to change the default camera app with samsungs new stock camera app ? i like the feature where you swap left and all different effects show in real time to pick 🙂

    have a good day 🙂

    • cant find the cover screen lock feature like when put the flip the lid on it would lock auto ?

      Interesting, I didn’t realize this phone had a flip cover, let alone one with a window. For less than $3 and I can pick it up locally, sure, I grabbed one for myself. I applied a couple of commits from the reputable crpalmer to enable the hall sensor to trigger screen on/off via FlipFlap:

      I had to make some rough measurements based on pictures of where the window is, and I won’t be able to verify my measurements until the end of this month when my case is ready for pickup. For now, I’m just testing with a magnet on the right-middle of the phone. Here’s a build to try it yourself: (309 MB)

  4. Hi,
    First off, thank you for the knowledge you share on XDA and on here.
    I have a question and hoping you can help. I have a DInc 4G LTE that is on the 2014 OTA (2.19…..). I had tried rooting it (including trying an older Rumrunner) and it wasn’t taking. (I’ve rooted a few phones prior to this and never had the problems with them that I’ve had with this one. -_-) I came across your “stock fireball” page where you mention using a newer Rumrunner to unlock. I thought what the hell and gave it a go. It worked! So thank you for that. 🙂
    I downloaded and flashed your modified TWRP. I used twrp-3.1.N0-0-fireball.img because I was interested in doing the Data/SD Swap. Flash was fine, Recovery was running fine.
    Next was the Data/SD Swap and this is where I have the problem. I followed your instructions (Wipe-Advanced Wipe-Data-Repair or Change File System-Size) and selected FAT. It prompted me to reboot, but I hit Back. It showed as VFAT now instead of EXT4. I did the same for the SD Internal Storage, changing it to EXT4. Rebooted Recovery, from the reboot menu.
    Now my phone will not turn on at all. No lights, no vibration, nothing. It just went dead and black. The PC won’t show it. I’ve pulled my battery and even tried my extra battery. Charging cord does not prompt a light. Nothing.
    I realize that I missed doing this on the Cache. I don’t know if that is what caused the problem. I just wanted to get rid of the Crapvizon bloatware and that stupid insufficient storage error when I have a 32GB SD card and literally run two apps with most of the stock apps disabled. lol
    Is there any advice that you can offer? If you can’t help, no worries. I will keep looking for a solution in the meantime.
    Have a good one. 🙂

    • Nothing in the partition swap should prevent your phone from at least reaching the bootloader (HBOOT). I’d suggest:

      1. Unplug the device from any USB cables
      2. Pull the battery for a couple of minutes
      3. Hold Volume-Down and Power (I usually start by holding Volume-Down, then hold Power) until the bootloader shows. From there you should be able to select FASTBOOT
      4. Connect USB to a computer and install your favorite recovery: fastboot flash recovery my-favorite-recovery.img
      • Thanks for the reply! I had tried unplugging the USB, pulling the battery, trying a different battery, and attempting to get into the bootloader. I have also tried a few different USB cables. It does not show it with the orange charging light, nor the green light. There is just nothing. I tried all of that again just now. Still nothing. There is no sign of life from the phone. Plugging into the computer shows it as “QHSUSB_DLOAD.”
        As mentioned before, it is unlocked, S-off, TWRP (twrp-3.1.N0-0-fireball.img) installed, with stock 2.19…. Would it be possible for a faulty USB/charging port to cause it to not turn on? Even with a fully charged battery? (I have an extra battery with a charger.) That is the only other thing I can think of if it’s not from the partition swap. Right after trying to reboot from recovery, it powered down and went dead, so it never rebooted like it should have.
        Thank you again!
