    **Update: For those who bought their phone in china and get market-locked, please go to http://forums.windowscentral.com/hua...ked-china.html


    1. Download and install Fiddler.
    http://fiddler2.com/home

    Setting up fiddler

    1.launch fiddler,Select Tool->Fiddler Options in the menu bar
    2.on the following Message Box,Select Connections page,Set the settings below
    ------
    Fiddler listens to port:8888
    Check all box EXCEPT ' Capture FTP requests' and 'USE PAC SCRIPTS'
    Bypass fiddler for URLs that start with
    (enter line below)
    ;

    3.Change configurations to reset OC. Select Rules->Customize Rules... in the menu bar
    4.Use Note pad to open the script, Find 'OnBeforeRequest' in this file.
    5.At line 1,insert 3 lines as shown below(line 2 to line 4 is what you need to add.
    DONT COPY 'LINE X:' ON THE LEFT! THEY ARE NOT USEFUL!!! IT IS JUST FOR HELPING YOU.

    Line 1:static function OnBeforeRequest(oSession: Session) {

    Line 2: if (oSession.uriContains(".windowsphone.com") && oSession.uriContains("&oc=CN&")) {

    Line 3: oSession.url = oSession.url.Replace("&oc=CN&", "&oc=EN&");

    Line 4: }


    6.Note that in the lines above, EN stands for UK,which means that we are going to switch to UK market place afterwards. So the region format in your phone have to select UK. If you want to switch to other markets, just change EN into other countries' short name, the country you set on your phone have to be the same as the one you set in the lines above.
    7.This is my fiddler configuration :http://pan.baidu.com/share/link?shar...&uk=1577572084 Set to uk,lazybones can download it directly and unzip and overwrite, the path is:

    C:\Users\\Documents\Fiddler2\Scripts\CustomRules.js

    8.After all done,Select Menu--- File->Capture Traffic。You can see http packs are captured


    Next, the phone:
    1.Enter Settings->WLAN
    2.Select wifi you are currently using.
    3.Add proxy(The Ip address of the PC which is running fiddler and port 8888)Example:Server:192.168.0.100,Port:8888

    You should set up a proxy on your computer, google 'how to' yourself, I'm Chinese and don't know much about these software, and if you can read Chinese, http://pan.baidu.com/share/link?shar...&uk=1577572084

    Next, Switch the market!!!!:

    1.Enter settingslanguage +regionsCountry /region(change to UK if you set above)region format(change to UK if you set above)
    RESET YOUR PHONE.

    2.Enter settingsfeedbacks ,open itback to settingsclick phone update, click find update, wait for it to complete
    3.Wait for about 10-20 minutes.
    Then enter Huawei Hub,find SKYPE, jump to market to download ,success!!!(Seems that we can't enter the market directly)
    NEVER FORGET TO TURN OFF FEEDBACK AFTER IT IS ALL RIGHT!!!!!

    You can unbrand by flash another rom, no need to do this and this may not work.

    Hi oscarxvita,
    I carefully did what u wrote above and I succeeded :) I'm able to see my native (ukrainian) market instead of chinese. But...
    When I try to install skype (install button is enabled) I get the error - This item isn't available from the Store in your region.
    What is wrong?
    My huawei w1 is originally from China with chinese firmware. Is it the reason? To tell the truth I don't want to flash the ROM right now. All I need is to install few apps (like skype).
    Thanks in advance.
