Seems to be a wealth of information about the G510 (aka Orange Daytona) in Spanish out there: http://www.htcmania.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1009

Google translate does a good enough job on them to be able to make sense of what's being said.

That looks incredibly handy, might save some effort with the bootloader etc.

Any confirmation that the ROMs are cross-compatible? I know there's different chips inside various of the G510s flying around

At last, my Spanish skillz will pay off...

Me gustaría comprar la pelota de playa inflable naranja y ese pequeño cubo y la pala!

I've dated two spanish speaking girls in a row and all I ever picked up was obscenities :)

Of course I have another problem, the bootloader unlocker program only works on windows..

I´m not sure that you mean, but you can upgrade the firmware, but not downgrade it, with the official update.app firmware

And you must be carefull with the chinese firmware that begins for G510-0010.....Bxxx, the spanish firmware is G510-0200.....Bxxx, and it´s seems that the difference is the CPU (i´m not sure of that).

Here is a summary of forum´s advance: (thanks to megasamu)

If your device is G510-0200..................Bxxx, (like mine: G510-0200..........B172) is compatible. The ROMs are Huawei´s internatinal update.apps, and you can flash it with the device´s recovery (vol -, vol + and power). The last update is the B173 international, and you can´t leave it at moment. (You got a few of them: B176, B177 and B178)

If you preffer the custom ROMs, you can flash the Kra1o5´s recovery ( http://www.htcmania....ad.php?t=591253 ) and you can use the 2 custom ROMs that they have in the forum, both in evolution. But at moment you can´t return to official ROMs (i think)

Mine UK/Vodafone model is : G510-0100V100R001C02B171 so it seems to be slightly lagging, I did find the B173 firmware and was considering flashing it.. but thought I'd wait for my bootloader unlock before I mess with it.

Also , I noticed the newer firmwares you mention are for the G510-0200, rather than the G510-0100... you had any reports of problems?

The first firmwares that they found was the chinese ones, and the people i think that didn´t had any problem, just they don´t have the google apps, like market, and they can´t update to the international firmwares, is not bad for a different chipset (now they can put any firmware flashing oeminfo partition)

Other known problems, in any update, you lose some configuration, (the toggles i think is the name), but is easy to repair, just changing the cust folder, when you are root.

I think that the best way to take is asking here: [email protected] , about if you can upgrade to http://www.huaweidevice.com/worldwide/downloadCenter.do?method=toDownloadFile&flay=software&softid=NDcxNDM= (they just say G510, without any differece)

Just because they don't officially encourage it doesn't necessarily mean it won't work.

That said, what's the situation with them having to release sources for the 0100 model?

The Spanish guy in this topic seems to thing you can flash G510-200 ROM's without any issue on the G510-100. He even said he had been flashing G510 ROM's on a Y300.

Anyway there are users who have used the 0200 China Update, 0010, and have had no more problems than not being able to use google apps and can upgrade back to international, both easily repairable. In fact, in this forum, there is a user who has upgraded from a Y300, and first we had for recoverys for G510 were for the Y300. I mean, I understand you have to be cautious, but for now the experience is that there are not many problems, and yes many compatibilities.

Without wishing to convince anyone, just to inform. A greeting.

That´s the right way.

All that you need is to unlock the bootloader.

I tried to flash a G510-0200 update to my G510-0100. It doesn't work. Luckily it fails after it checks the update file and before it starts the update process so it'll be a simple case of detecting the model and refusing to update because it's not on the list.

Safest way would be to update using custom packaged roms. When available.
