Huawei U8860 Honor Official Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) firmware

The long awaited Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) 4.0.3 firmware is now available for Huawei U8860 Honor (both camera and non-camera)!

This firmware release is specifically for users in Singapore:

Warning: Do note that this is a wipe rom. It means that it formats /cache , /data and /HWUserData. So do your necessary backups before proceeding with the flashing.

The flashing instructions are included in each of the firmware packages. The ICS ROM flashing requires you to have a microSD card (at least 1GB in size) to store the firmware for upgrade. The upgrade is straight forward but do note (again) that it actually wipes off your user and application data. So do any necessary backups prior to the upgrade.

    Are you able to upload the ICS to mediafire as well? I had been trying to d/l from huawei for past few days, but it’s always not available.

    Gavin,

    It will be better to get the ICS firmware from the manufacturer site. You would not want a tampered ICS firmware found on other sites. You can try using a download manager to resume the download.

    I feel that GB is more responsive then ICS, hoping Huawei for next update or even JB 😉
