This is the first update I have done from the vodafone rom.

Everything feels much smoother and faster. Speaker fixed, touch buttons better, the stock android keyboard even feels more responsive and the screen is too. The browser feels smoother too.

I think this phone can only be improved by ics going forward.

I agree with that last comment. Volume issue asidebi I believe huawei haven't done a bad job at all here!

CWM failed for me after flashing B886, luckily I had everything backed up with Titanium.

CWM wouldn't restore the backup and said error on Drive E or something like that ........

Just finished installing b888 rom. I think the only observable difference when compared to 886 is that 888 comes with the latest versions of Google packages like Play, Gmail etc...

Updated and happy with the results. Far superior to the Vodafone ROM.

Shame i ordered the unlock code from Specialize just before he suffered delays on the codes. Will be a brilliant phone for the price when unlocked.

Just flashed the B888 rom before heading to bed - just a few fixes with the language packs from the looks of things, as well as updated Google apps.

Definately better than the stock rom. Was that DTS toggle switch under settings/ sound on the B884 and 886 roms?

flashed rom and vendor to get drop down controls, phone restarted ok with rom flash but had to remove battery with vendor flash. Browser is handling page scrolling a lot better and things seem nice and smooth. Sounds good to.

I don't have drop down controls even after flashing vendor, not had it for a while infact, I presume its something to do with the backup I made using titanium, I have them until I restore *shrugs*

Power control widget doesn't have the data toggle but just noticed there is another widget called toolbox rewrite built in to B888 that adds on the data toggle. Sweet.

Seems faster and the sound issue is fixed which is a major reason for doing it.

Keys seems better, touch screen still not ultra responsive but my day to day phone is a green fruit so maybe that is not a fair viewpoint.

Loaded some apps and it still seems fast.

And mine froze doing the vendor file also and needed a battery pull!

Just done mine up to B888, did not need battery pull on either update file, I did mine through Settings ----> Storage ----> Software upgrade rather than the force method.

Will do benchmarks in a mo.

EDIT:

BenchMark and Tuning Free: Average of 5345 (Beats Huawei U8800, LG-P970, STM803HC and LG-P500,

performance nearly on par with a Sony Erricson WT19i! (score increase of 433 points, 8% increase in performance)

(5202, 5470, 5362)

AnTuTu Benchmark v2.7.3: 2923, a small improvement of 46 points (2972, 2873) (rounded to nearest whole number)

CF-Bench: 3175 (3335, 2936, 3256) Small dip in performance, but I'm sure rooting and changing the governor will bring out greater scores.

There looks to be a problem restoring to older Huawei ROMs and Clockworkmod backups! I think it is the partition sizes have been altered after flashing B888. I've updated the first post and will update it once I have found a solution. Any help appreciated!

Thanks for the heads up on this I was about to start downloading the ROM after reading the Goolgedoc! I saw the big red text on the first post just as I went to start the download! Thanks.
