[ROM] [GB] B899 v6.1 3G signal optimization (REPACK & both baseband)

37 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

After testing five GB roms with highest rankings on chinese forums,
I found this one to be peticulary good.
Two roms among those were even better,[s] but had various problems I couldn`t solve[/s] :(
(Solved: [url="http://www.modaco.com/topic/361497-romgb236-five-roms-multibaseband/"]http://www.modaco.co...-multibaseband/[/url])

[size=6][b]Check your [color=#ff0000]baseband[/color] in phone settings[/b][/size], then proceed accordingly:

[b]Installation instructions for [color=#ff0000]109808[/color] baseband[/b] (check in your phone settings):
- You have to have baseband 109808, phone rooted, unlocked bootloader and a recovery on (cwm, maybe twrp).
- Download zip file (rom), gapps for GB, HwIme or another keyboard and transfer that to SDcard.
- Turn on debugging on your phone, turn off fast boot, turn off phone (some folks remove battery now:))
- Press vol. up and power button together for 10 seconds.
- You are in CWM now (probably)
- Wipe data/factory reset
- Wipe cache partition
- Mounts: Format System, Cache, Cust, Data
- Advanced: Wipe Dalvik cache, battery stats if you have them, Reboot recovery
- Install zip from SDcard -> choose zip -> your rom (zip)
- Install zip from SDcard -> choose zip -> gapps for GB (zip)
- Reboot to system

Leave your phone now for 5 minutes, let it take a breath.
Skip Google intro.
You don`t have a keyboard yet, so go to your rom`s file manager and find HwIme keyboard, install it.


[s][b]Installation instructions for [color=#ff0000]2030[/color] baseband [/b](check in your phone settings):
- You have to have baseband 2030, phone rooted, unlocked bootloader and a recovery on (cwm, maybe twrp).
- Same as in the guide above, just with an extra step after you flash your rom (zip).
Imediatelly after flashing rom - you have to flash a patch:
- Install zip from SDcard -> choose zip -> GB&CM7_on_2030bb_patch.zip
- Now proceed with your gapps (zip) and Reboot to system and allow phone to rest for 5 minutes :)[/s]
[b]EDIT: this patch breaks network, sooner or later. No real harm, but you will lose phone signal and you˙ll have to flash something else.[/b]
[b]SO - flash this rom only on 109808 baseband.[/b]


[b]Modded:[/b]
1. Directly based on the official firmware Huawei U8818 Android 2.3, V100R001C17B899;

12. added a script to turn off the keyboard lights, renamed as the system \ etc \ init.d under the Z90closeButtonLight.sh

Arabic language patch by Tillaz:

For smoother experience change original launcher to AWD or Lightning.
You can uninstall baidu keyboard aftery you set your own.

Replaced chinese calendar
Deleted 3-4 chinese apps
Network is really fast!
Battery life`s great!

Dakok, I like your pic, John Lennon, my hero. (My mother knew himm back in the day). Anyway, this rom is pretty good. A Gobackup from ics won't work but AllBackup is fine. Thanks, Dakok.

well i dont think "Right to left" is the problem, since it displays the letters correctly from right to left, but the letters [u]arent connected[/u]

anyway this rom doesnt have power toggles so im sticking to atomic

Is it possible to return the stock GB color instead "8. ICS power and signal icon".
I do not really like that ICS style.
Maybe replace the files or something?
