    I have a android on operating system 2.3.6. It is AT&T however I had it unlocked for another provider so the auto updater doesn't work as I'm not using them as a provider. So I want to know how to manually update a phone and also how to tell what the max update your phone is compatible with is. Also risks involved. Thank you.

    Model: Huawei-U8665
    (If that helps)

    Welcome to the forums.
    Do you mean update your version of Android?

    My guess would be no. You can try to look for your model of phone on say Cyanogen Mods website to see if they support it for a custom ROM, but I wouldn't get any hopes up.

    Thank you very much. They have done it for similar phones and there is a decent amount of requests. Who knows maybe sometime soon they will come out with one.

    Maybe. They only way they will think about developing for it is if people tell them to. Have you emailed them?

    I have not. However doing some further looking on their forums they may have already done so. They have one for a Huawei U8665 Fusion 2. Not sure if the one I have is the fusion 2 as it states nowhere on it that it is but same exact model number otherwise so I'm thinking it is. Maybe you can shed some light on that?

    If it is the same model number it should be OK. I would look at learning to root and flash a custom recovery, so you can make a Nandroid (system copy) in case something goes wrong.
    Best place to start looking would be YouTube.

    I've already rooted it. Will start looking into the rest tomorrow as it's midnight here and I need to get some sleep. Thanks for all your help. Have a good night.

    Do you have a custom recovery installed already?

    Finding a custom recovery would be the next step. Almost all Custom ROMs like Cyanogen need a custom recovery to install. Where did you find your root method?

    OK. I would check out YouTube videos for installing a custom recovery. CWM and TWRP are the two best ones.

    Well I failed as soon as I started to try as it requires you to go into fastboot mode and when I do it freezes at the AT&T logo. I left it there for a hour and a half and nothing. any recommendations?
