Hope there are significant changes/improvements despite version number being all too familiar. ICS slowdowns, memory management, apps not responding, mountpoint issues and hw accelerated ui are just a few things that spring to mind. Will not be happy if some of these issues have not been addressed.

Our device and lesser devices can handle it. Look at ics/jellybean on the blade. In terms of responsiveness it's light years ahead of any of the g300 ics releases. I've got both.

Something is awfully wrong with ics on the g300 and Vodafone better not be palming us off with more of the same.

I've noticed lower spec other devices being much faster too, Especially on GB, the Galaxy Ace seems so much faster! There is something seriously wrong with the phone, I haven't tried CM10 yet though

@FrankieADZ I'm downloading it now, with 11 minutes left.. I'll try UnlockBootloader when its flashed

Vodafone really aren't going to have much say over how the ROM performs, unfortunately, and aren't going to be in a position to make demands of Huawei to improve it. They're a far larger and more powerful company than Vodafone and if Huawei decide that G936 is all we're getting we're going to have to rely on the community to improve it.

Im also wondering why uts not ota first and also why previous versions of ics can be upgraded. Some things we can only speculate but im a happy camper( for now!)

strange the pdf file is there on both the packages i have just downloaded.?????

Yeah, the pdf file is present in both packages and it has the same file contains (e.g. same amount of pages and same info) but yet the md5 hash is different compared to the pdf in the other zip file. I have no idea why this is but the important thing is that the update.app is the same.

Probably not worth an upgrade from B934 then...? I take it it's probably the same ROM just with the Voda rubbish added to it? Probably the same case with the New Zealend one too. They were given the B934 build an added their own apps to the cust partition, am I right?

I think Voda usually pushes out OTA updates on a Thursday, and this hit Huawei's site on a Friday. So it might not be due for another couple of days OTA.

If they're pushing a shoddy release then both huawei and vodafone are legitimate points of contact especially after all the assurances received previously. Time to get testing.

Edit: But I agree entirely, the devs here could totally embarass them. I just dont want people thinking that our hardware is a bottleneck. The scope for optimisation is huge.

We're ultimately at the mercy of Huawei in the end, though, and I doubt they particularly care at this point- the G300 is pretty old hat for them by now. We can put pressure on Vodafone UK all we want but there's no way Huawei will budge based on demand for a £100 phone from one small island's mobile company.

Not that it really matters but they're both huge:-

operating profit :-

huawei made $1.37billion last 6 months.

Vodafone £6.22billion last year

Edit: Mirrors anyone please :)

The update.app is the exact same file in both, it doesn't matter which you install.
