    try to rename DLOAD folder using PC to other name, the rename it back to DLOAD. (do not rename using android)

    i have both dload (eclair + froyo) folder in my sd card, and i rename it eclair-dload and froyo-dload just to play with flashing and rooting using my script, and i found if i rename it back to dload using android it just won't load. i have to rename it back using pc. not sure why.

    and make sure you have match MD5 for UPDATA.APP

    Thanks for everyone's help, but I am at a complete loss. Still no luck.

    md5check is correct.
    deleted log file from the dload folder
    tried formatting the sd card with both Fat and FAT32
    completely booted down
    removed battery
    etc.

    My machine boots up normally every time.

    Yes. external SDcard - F:\dload
    updata.app
    unlmt.cfg

    Both files have a question mark next to them.

    i don't understand what you mean with question mark.
    try to rename the files using PC,
    updata.app
    unlmt.cfg

    > make sure you "unthick" the "hide extensions for known files" in your pc folder options.

    @tri_zet and all. Once again, you people rock. I am leaving a trail of breadcrumbs for other frustrated newbies.

    Problem: Unable to flash. S7 boots up in the old 2.1 OS even though .rar is unpacked, md5 hash is okay, and dload folder is at root of sdcard2.

    Solution: I formatted the microSD card as FAT32 using DOS and unpacked the .rar file directly to the card using winrar.exe.
    I actually put the microSD card in a camera connected by USB to a Win7 pc. That probably wasn't necessary but it took the S7 completely out of the equation. I think the format command in the S7 Settings menu (in 2.1 at least) is worthless; it returns in less than a second. The card could be read / written by the S7 just fine, but it would not flash from there on reboot. Formatting via dos took 15+ minutes (again, it was in my camera hanging off a USB cable). The dos command used was
    format <drive letter>: /FS:FAT32
    I then unpacked the .rar file directly to root of this drive using winrar.exe. As suggested above, this avoided creating or renaming the dload folder by the S7.

    Once this was done, I was able to reboot (twice, as recommended) then removed the microSD card and it started up in 2.2. Sweet. On to rooting, recovering apps, etc.

    I would download the Rom again, the question mark I think means your S7 is not recognizing the files for whatever reason. Unrar the file on your PC, delete the .log file, format your SD in your PC, then drop the DLOAD folder on the SD. Pull the battery on your S7, insert the SD card and try again. Hope you get it soon, it is frustrating I know.

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That worked...You have to make that the sticky and get rid of the others. I was reading to many other link2sd setups from leaving the second partiton unmounted, scripts and so on. Your hit it right on the head and thanks.

    I used the instruction here--

    http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/huawei-tablets/2290-huawei-s7-useful-tweaks-tips.html

    It's the tweaks and tips sticky.

    And no, I didn't use any commands, I am not familiar with Linux to get that techy.
    I am planning to take a college class on Linux either in the fall or spring.
    I'd love to have one quarter of the Linux knowledge that techies on this forum have!!
    Then again, with a little knowledge, I would probably be a danger to my tablet!!

    Peace,
    Dave

    it is not necessary to format it using DOS (i think you mean diskpart commands), you can format directly from windows explorer or disk management.

    actually, this is mentioned in Upgrade User Guide.pdf on official firmware from huawei site
    just to reconfirmed, i tried again to rename my dload folder using android, it just won't load.
    so you have to rename it using windows again, or extract the file without rename it.

    i will put this information on first page.

    Make sure that when you partition the ext2 part you assign it as a primary drive and not a logical drive. Once you have done that links2sd should recognize and be able to mount it.

    Just quick fyi for all trying this... I believe that gps is not supported and the compass seems wonky. Not a big deal since I don't use gps or compass apps. I'm running the bb s7. This version totally rocks in every other way. Its like having a brand new tablet!

    The GPS on my BB S7 is working GREAT. I get satellites even when indoors. My dedicated GPS can't even do that.
    Also, with AT&T Edge working, I can use it for Geocaching. And it is more precise than the dedicated GPS, too.

    As a Trekkie, I installed the tricorder app and it shows 9 satellites accessed from inside my house.
    The compass doesn't work well indoors(maybe EMF from appliances) but outdoors that works good also.

    Peace,
    Dave
