With all the talk of ICS on the forums at the minute I'm not sure how many of you are still left on stock B885. For those of you who are, an offical update appears to be availiable:

Settings > About Phone > Online Upgrade > Firmware Upgrade

From the short release notes, all I know is that it upgrades Google applications to version R10. Whatever that means. :P

I'm downloading it now and will update once it's up and running.

Alright it’s up and running. After a short play, the screen alignment issue is gone, and the three capacitive buttons seem to be way more responsive. :)

Mine updated without a hitch just like B885. At what point in the update did it fail, any errors?

Strange they went to 892 instead of ics,unless it`s been put back? Weird if so seeing that 927`s just been leaked.

So, this mean that the google play market issue is already fixed ? Since Huawei released this official update.

Are there any links to download this firmware ? Can I update directly from B888 ?

Edit: Nervermind. It's not ICS lol

To be honest and just leaving here my 2cents... of course any1's free to do what they want... but...

I don't know, apart from wanting to keep the warranty or not feeling comfortable enough to do it, why any1 would want to keep, for example, a vodafone stock rom :)

They're just filled with trash :) And there's more recent versions, there's ICS and with a CWM backup of the stock, u can always revert whenever needed :)

Kind regards

It's a 28 MB update zip. Had to restore my old Vodafone backup (B885) to get offered it over the air. Now have it stored locally but haven't tried it yet.

Uploading it now.

And would someone who has installed this please verify that they can re-root and reinstall CWM. I'm assuming it should be ok as it seems to just be a patch, but would like that confirmed!

Interesting it supposedly fixes the screen misalignment. Suggests it patches low level firmware.

The OS runs alot smoother, the capacitive buttons more responsive, just a nice smooth feel to it. I may not root, uninstall bloatware and wait for official ICS.

But could you try and see if it works using the previously documented method? Do you still have CWM after the update or did it flash a new recovery image as well? Edit: So you reinstalled stock B885 first - so no CWM then?

Thanks a lot .. odd that they did this update now seeing as the entire phone runs super slick under ICS. Maybe UK ICS is further off than we expected.

Ok so Paul's method flashes a new recovery (then refllashes stock recovery once it has done its work I believe) so even though you haven't installed CWM that must work if you managed to root. Thanks.

What I'm curious about is if I flash this over B885 stock then restore my current backup of Gr2 via CWM will I still have the screen alignment fixed? (ie did it update something at a low level out of reach of CWM - like the volume fix issue where you needed the official update first). If not then what changed?

Suppose I could just try it but I never like to be the first...
