Hi. Had the notification email that my nexus 4 is being delivered today. My G300 is being passed to my mother. She's currently running my old wildfire with cm7 installed. The G300 is running infusion but id like suggestions for a different rom before I pass it on. Mums priorities are calls, texts, camera, internet and Gmail. She doesn't really install apps or play mp3s/ video. was thinking of stock plus. Any thoughts/suggestions are welcome. I won't be able to reply til after work this evening but thank you for your input.

I've tried most roms on here and always end up back on stock+. Seems the most reliable and one of the smoothest with no bugs. Only the internal storage bug but unless you install a lot of games or map apps it's no problem.

I would just take B952 and remove all the superfluous apps from it. I'm still considering putting out a minimal ROM for this purpose. It seems like it'd be ueful to people as G300s steadily become hand-me-downs.

thanx for the replies. gonna leave the nexus in its box until I get a screen protector and case for it (didnt expect delivery this quickly)so if a stripped down 952 appears I will install that instead of stock plus.

all the best

Am currently looking at the options for an increased storage under /data . Theres a couple of possibilities. I might also be able to allocate a bit more space to "external" storage and less to data for normal, sociable types who like to take more snaps and play less games (aka people-who-aren't-phone-nerds) ;)

H'okay, will do. Its not so much of a case of developing, as it is repackaging. The only people who have really done genuine dev work n the G300 are those actually hacking on the kernel, CM porting and recovery - a handful of people. ;)

stock+ is pretty minimal and fast. either that or stock 252, which isn't quite as fast. then use something like Rom toolbox to remove the system apps you don't want, or just use a different launcher to hide them. use external storage for photos etc, and you won't have any issues with storage capacity.

Thats a lot of messing about just to remove some apps. Theres no great secret here:

1) Download a stock ROM packaged for clockworkmod recovery.

2) Open with your favourite archive utility (e.g. Winzip or maybe Fileroller, if you've abandoned the dark side).

3) Navigate to /system/app inside the .zip and then delete unwanted apps

4) close the archive utility

5) Install ROM

The only real knowledge involved lies in knowing what you can and can't remove. The Cyanogenmod wiki has some handy pointers. More specifically when it comes to the stck Huawei builds for the G300, I'd als leave the Qualcomm wiper app in place, because its quite closely integrated into the system. All Huawei crap, including the wonderful ProjectMenuAct, can be removed or replaced if so desired.
