Confirmed! Battery life is better IMO... About that in-call volume, I had some issues with it, then I figured it out. Turns out if there is a lot of noise in the background the volume will get higher, if its quiet the volume will be ok. I know this because when I was making a phone on a street in the evening, its was kinda quiet and the volume was normal, but as a car went by me the volume got much higher and then went back to normal after the car passed. So it's not a bud i guess...

As for the rom, it's great, I really like it, fast, responsive. If Daz fixes the mobile data eating the battery, i'd call it a final version...

M8, the volume is definitely too high, I've used other roms, like ShenDu, where it's normal, and this is the best way to see the difference.

Of course I always come back to CM, because it's so much better and faster and smoother... :D

I saw somewhere that Dazz doesn't have a SIM in his G300, so if he's not making calls with it, it makes sense that he's not aware of this problem.

I never had the problem for the months that I used it as my phone.

Cyanogenmod with no issues for my G300? This is like heaven on earth :D Now the only thing left to do is solve those annoying random reboots :) Anyone got suggestions? Did someone try the Toggle2G app and does it work for preventing reboots? http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=739530

They seem to be solved. It's a bootloader issue and not a CM issue. Some people are testing it right now.

I guess that it's not a general problem for everybody, and that it depends on your personal preference for audio levels.

Audio and video quality are very subjective categories, but I'm glad that I'm not the only one who has this problem with CM9.

Anyway Dazz, it's much better on CM10.1, so no worries m8! ;)

I know, I got restarts on all roms I tested until now, even with Paul's kernel...the manufacturers of Huawei are really dumb: they provided us with an open source of the rom&kernel but they didn't take in account bootloader issues...

What? Huawei's bootloader has no issues. The "unlocked" bootloader does. This is not Huawei's problem.

And are there any chance that the unlocked bootloader will be 100% reboot-free?

It's not part of the ROM. If you're having reboots its going to require you to "re-unlock" your bootloader again when the new one is up.

I'm very new to this and only stubbled across this site after my vodafone upgrade from GB to ICS was awful.

Anyway i followed the resources guide and successfully installed this custom rom - which is wicked...

The issue i have with the 2/2/13 update is that it just won't work via the OTA upgrade (upon rebooting it won't go beyond the HUAWEI screen)

Anyway i'm messing about with the 4.2 JB for now - but at some point would like to go back to this version until the JB is worked on abit more.

The other OTA updates will load (i.e the JB update im using now)...Any ideas ??

Hey dazzazo, I tried the new bootloader but I get the 'permission denied' error.

Permission denied

I rooted the G300 way back with the first semi-official ICS build. Since then, I've installed the newest CWM and enjoyed your CM10 and CM10.1 builds, upgrading OTA. For what it's worth, this is the splash screen of what I assume is the current bootloader: http://i.imgur.com/jwvqjcW.jpg

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, so any help/input is appreciated!

Edit: if you're on CM, you need to allow root via adb shell. It's in developer options somewhere. In my defense I was on stock because I had to re-update.app when I bricked my device while hacking. :P

You don't need to run the root script, that's only there for rooting on stock.

Ah I see the option, 'Developer Options' => 'Root access' => 'Apps and ADB'. I'll try again.

edit: seems to have worked, no error message

To update bootloader on Linux, I only need to start script:

bootloader-linux.sh

?

P.S. I'm on rooted stock B952 with unlocked bootloader and CWM 6.0.2.7 installed...

Cheers mate, that got it! I'd just flashed CM9 from fresh and forgotten to enable it... All sorted! Now to see how the new bootloader performs! :)
