The Huawei U8100 and Mac OS X, “Upgrade Failed”

If you have a Huawei U8100 phone and you use Mac OS X and you’d like to update the firmware, don’t bother. After a full day of fighting with the thing, I’ve found you have to use Windows to load an SD card with the necessary files, or it simply won’t work. I’ve created this post simply to help out those who might’ve been inclined to waste many hours, as I did.

I am not at all sure why the hell this is, but I assume it’s some strange way the ZIP file is packed.
