Huawei Ascend Y600-20 Stock ROM/ Firmware to unbrick your phone

Huawei Ascend Y600-U20 Firmware, this firmware is already tested. You can check out the comment box for confirmation.





"Download these files"
Firmware Here --> Huawei Y600-U20
VCOM Driver -->VCOM Manual
Alternative Driver --> AutoInstaller
SPFlashTool --> LatestVersion 


"Use WinRar or 7zip to extract the firmware"
"Extract the files to your desired folder"
"If you encounter error in flashtool, use different version of it."

"I suggest to use 32bit Windows OS for compatibility of the driver"


Installing Driver with AutoInstaller


First try the Alternative Driver, which is the AutoInstaller. Just open the install.exe then it will automatically install the driver. To fully check if the driver is correctly installed in your computer. 

Follow these steps:
  1. Turn off your phone (always powered off is a must)
  2. Press and hold volume up or down, or you can simple press the two button
  3. Insert your USB cable without releasing the VOLUME button(s).
  4. In your computer, it must detect your phone and it will install the MTK Preloader or Mediatek USB VCOM driver.
  5. Repeat 1 to 4 if it does not detect your phone.
  6. If MTK Preloader/Mediatek USB VCOM Driver is installed you are good to go in flashing your phone ^_^

Installing Manually using VCOM Driver

When installing it manually your phone must be turned off, then connect it to your computer/laptop while pressing VOLUME UP or VOLUME DOWN. This will detect and look for the driver.


 1. This is the first time that you will connect your phone and it will search for the correct driver.

2. Check include this location ... ... and click on browse. Look for USB VCOM Driver and Click on 2K_XP_COM folder if you are using Windows XP or Win7 for Windows 7 and then press OK when you are done picking the right folder for the driver.


3. If the driver is successfully installed MediaTek DA USB VCOM will appear in the New Hardware Wizard.

"Your Phone must be turned off when you are ready to connect and flash your phone"

Flashing
1. Launch FlashTool (flash_tool.exe)
2. In Flashtool, Click on Scatter-Loading, and load your scatter file. (see example below)

 3. After you load the file, press Press Download to Flash your Phone.

4. After you press Download Follow these steps
  • Turn off your phone (always powered off is a must)
  • Press and HOLD volume UP or Down or you can simply press it simultaneously
  • Insert your USB cable without releasing the VOLUME button(s).
  • Keep on repeating until Flashtool detected your phone.
5. If successfully detected just wait until the progress bar reaches 100%. If your phone did not automatically turn on after flashing, remove battery and USB cable. And put back your battery then turn on your device.


"Hard reset your phone after flashing"


Some workarounds:
If you encounter PMT_Changed error here is what you do:
In Latest version of Flashtool
  1. Load the scatter file
  2. Choose Format all + Download (Underneath Scatter-loading file)
  3. Then Click Download and wait until it is done flashing
For Invalid IMEI:Your Phone/Tablet must be rooted first
Restore yong IMEI in MTKDroidTools version 2.5.3. You will have this error when you format your phone in Flashtool as I had experienced. To restore download MTKDroidTools version 2.5.3 After you extract the file. Open the green robot, you must enable the usb debugging in your phone. It is usually located in Settings>Devoloper Mode then look for usb debugging. After enabling it. Connect your phone in your computer then in MTKDroidTool click on ROOT. Wait for it to finish, then Click in IMEI/NVRAM, input 15 number in each box. Then click REPLACE. Then click Reboot or you can manually turn off your phone. Then turn your phone on again. You can see that you have fully restored your IMEI.


I hope this tutorial help you. Please drop a comment if something is not clear to you.

  26. Hi there,

    What OS are you using is it 32bit or 64bit?

    If you are using 64bit turn off driver signing or driver signature. You can search google on how to turn off or to disable it.

    Please check the driver if properly installed.

    Hello! It seems liie u know what youre talking about... i was trying to install cwm in a huawei y600-u00 but i believe i pushed "firmware upgrade" instead of download only, of course, flash tools said there was an error and process didnt finish, but my phone is not turning on now, not a single signal its alive, but windows stills recognizes it when i plug it in... so... what can i do?? Pls help me if you know how!

    ReplyDelete
  31. firmware upgrade will reformat your phone, so you need to reflash the whole firmware for your phone. y600-u20 which is available here is not compatible for your y600-u00. I dont have the firmware for that particular phone as of the moment. you can try to google it.

  48. I have a Huawei Y600-U20 Smart phone that fails to boot, it stucks at Huawei Logo. I had this problem before and i was

    able to flash it through recovery mode with this firmware: Y600-U20_V100R001C456B008_Firmware_Malaysia_Indonesia_Philippines_Others_05021NTQ (SD card). Now i cannot use the recovery mode to flash the same firmware, i can enter the recovery mode but the android recovery mode seems faulty, the android robot is displayed but keeps blinking after every few second.
    Can anyone help me on how to revive the recovery mode so that i can flash my phone.

    NB: When i connect to the PC/Laptop the same Huawei logo appears. Is there any way to flash the phone?.

    Your assistance is highly appreciated.

    2. Hi Maribel Nuarin,
      I tried to flash the phone with Y600-U20V100R001C435B012_DCC and SP_Flash_Tool_v5.1524.00.000.

      The following happened:
      1. The Stuck Huawei logo changed to Huawei Ascend and still stuck at boot screen.

      2. The SP Flash just does the Download process and displays okay mark. It never goes to flashing stage.

      3. Trying again to go to Recovery mode after this process still displays the dead/sleeping android logo.

      Your assistance is highly appreciated.
