I've spent much time reading up on my issue with no progress at all. I have a problem with a Huawei Ascend G630.

I have never rooting my phone or flashing a custom rom. The phone does not work, I can’t reset it by pressing volume up, down and power, and only when it’s on charge, it shows the message:

"Recovery image verify failed Please update to the authorized images”.

I removed the battery, then, I tried getting it into the recovery mode to reset It or even flash its stock firmware following this instruction to solve it:

1) I downloaded HUAWEI G630 Firmware from here: http://consumer.huawei.com/kh/mobile-phones/support/downloads/detail/ascend-g630-kh.htm?id=26062

2) I extracted Huawei Smartphone firmware (UPDATE.APP) on my PC and then I have pasted it on micro SD card.

The process doesn’t start and the phone returns to the first message
“Recovery image verify failed”.

I think that bootloader is locked.

I enclosed a picture.enter image description here

Please help me. Thanks.

  • Do yourself a favor and edit your question and delete your IMEI number... It is of no relevance to the issue and people steal these all the time. – acejavelin Feb 3 '17 at 11:44
  • Ok sorry, I thought it was important. Thank you. – Fabio Consales Feb 3 '17 at 12:39
  • IMEI, MEID, ESN, and serial numbers are all specific to a single device... Sharing them is not a good idea, people use them to clone devices. Other information like kernel, baseband, system, or build versions are fine, those are more generic and cover a variety of handsets in common. – acejavelin Feb 3 '17 at 16:38

There is a quite simple workaround to solve your problem.

  • First you should search (on XDA example) and download an original-recovery.bin for your device.
  • After you can flash it in fastboot mode with the following command:
    • fastboot flash recovery original-recovery.bin

After this you have an original bootloader on your device.

Source: XDA-Developers

  • I wrote:"fastboot flash recovery original-recovery.bin" Prompt shows: “error: cannot load original-recovery.bin"; I downladed and extracted suggested file on XDA in a folder on my PC. So, I wrote this command:"fastboot reboot recovery.img",because in the folder called ADB that I downloaded, there are this file: 1)adb.exe;2)AdbWinApi.dll;3)AdbWinUsbApi.dll;4)boot.img;5)cwm.img; 6)fastboot.exe;7)recovery.img. – Fabio Consales Feb 6 '17 at 9:55
  • There was no such thing as a "suggested file on XDA", I just linked it as SOURCE. The file you've downloaded is for an other device (for Huawei Ascend G6-U10) not for your G630. I wrote in my answer in the very first step to download an original-recovery.bin for your device. Take an other round but in this time use a (device) correct original recovery. But I will edit my answer if it's not crystal clear to everyone. – Bálint Babics Feb 6 '17 at 10:01
  • I just tried to use this file, becauseI didn't foundthat for G630. When I wrote this command "fastboot reboot recovery.img", prompt shows "usage: fastboot [ <option> ] <command>" and it suggests to me some commands and options. – Fabio Consales Feb 6 '17 at 10:27
  • commands: update <filename> flashall flash <partition> [ <filename> ] erase <partition> getvar <variable> boot <kernel> [ <ramdisk> ] flash:raw boot <kernel> [ <ramdisk> ] devices continue reboot reboot-bootloader options: -w -s <serial number> -p <product> -c <cmdline> -i <vendor id> -b <base_addr> -n <page size> According to you, what should I do now? – Fabio Consales Feb 6 '17 at 10:30
  • You can't use whichever device's recovery. You should find a proper recovery for your device. Use the search on XDA, or Google it. Further more your command is meaningless, to boot up your device into fastboot mode use this: adb reboot-bootloader. – Bálint Babics Feb 6 '17 at 11:10

It looks like your recovery partition has somehow damaged.. Flashing UPDATE.APP is done by recovery so since your recovery is not working it failed to do so. If your device still has warranty I suggest you to take it to a service center and get it fixed.. Or else you'll have to reflash the stock recovery manually which requires unlocking your bootloader. Unlocking bootloader voids your warranty. Doing this for your exact device model and variant can be specific for your device. You can try searching on xda for that.
