    First of all thanks for the awesome update

    Regards

    Sorry, thread title should have ended with an interrogation mark

    Loaded android drivers that are inside the phone. Phone still not detecting.
    Any special instructions?

    Regards

            Huawei U8160/ Vodafone 858 Smart unlocked successfully. Epic update Dc-Unlocker team

            Procedure is the same as explained above by the very helpful Vincentas
            Except that you press VOLUME DOWN+HOME BUTTON+POWER BUTTON

            Phone will hang at start-up with an image of a hourglass/sandglass/sand timer/sand clock
            Insert cable, load drivers, detect phone and unlock

              didn't work for me

              Guys, don't know what I am doing wrong...

              This is what i did :

              1. Plugged phone via USB
              2. Windows XP or 7 (tried on 2 PC's) installed all drivers by himself - didn't put any CD any path to any drivers (what's kind of drivers he installed at all?!?!) - result : Your device is ready for use.

              3. Started DC-Unlocker
              4. Choosen Huawei Phones / Detect Phones --> No phone found

              Tried several reboots, plugged to other USB ports... nothing

              Any clue ?

                Dude did your phone hang at start-up after holding the three keys?
                Procedure is exactly as Vincentas has mentioned in his above post
                http://www.dc-unlocker.com/huawei_u8...lock_procedure

                EXCEPT that your hold VOLUME DOWN+HOME BUTTON+POWER BUTTON
                keys (this phone has no 'end call' key)
                Phone will hang with image of hourglass/sand clock. Connect cable, load drivers from above link and unlock
                I did three pieces without any problem (locked to Voda Spain)
                Goodluck

                    dude, try again. Did not work for me either the first time. Just do it right. It's the only way
                    Try not to let go of any of the three buttons (keep holding) until phone hangs

                      LOL, it worked... all 3 buttons has to be pressed and hold that long until the phone hangs.. Win 7 loaded the drivers from web.. and then rest according instructions... phone is unlocked !

                      Thank you guys ! God bless you all !

                            I guess those Windows 7 drivers could work on Vista, or wait for confirmation from someone who has tested.

                              No I have tried all the drivers available on this link fromm DC unlocker, but no luck. Also I am wondering do I need to buy the points get it detected or it should detect and i should have points to unlock it.
