Not sure if the G510 uses same kernel. Roms run between devices and only nfc difference I think but I'm not 100%

i don't know if this has already been posted but i just came across this while trying to find an unofficial bootloader unlock (inpatient guy)

apparently you can use it to unlock the bootloader and unlock the network ?

latest version

anyone want to give this a try for me while i'm waiting for the bootlader password? its just the settings.apk nothing dangerous.

i really don't like the tabbed crap they have going on in settings and am trying to get it as AOSP as possible lol

so for anyone wanting to give it a go just flash the zip in recovery, then reboot

open settings and take a screenshot, make a backup first though as it might force close.

It breaks the app. When i try and launch settings it says it isn't installed this is on stock rom that my Y300 came on. Can you do me a favour and upload the HW Theme apk please? :) Removed it but need to change my lockscreen wallpaper ha ha.

App not installed again. Maybe it's something to do with me being on B182? But the stock B190 settings works. Thanks for the theme apk.

Excellent news. So we'll expect the first custom A190-based rom by 8pm then? ;-)

Need any beta testers, chuck me a DM.

Interestingly, my TWRP is 2.5.0.1, but goomanager says no updates available... think I'll leave it as is, seems to work just fine.

Sod it, installed 2.6.0.0 via adb. At least I'm on the same recovery as @tillaz now, so when the roms come, everything's the same.

Yeah, that's normal. Don't know what it does, but I installed it... Then I removed all the huawei bloat anyway.

The A190 rom seems quite fast, but it doesn't keep apps in memory long enough. Needs some battery mods and performance tweaks, and Nova as default launcher. And volume rocker wake.

One thing I'd really like to be able to do is disable email message led flashing - it stops lightflow from taking full control.

I read somewhere that the B176 brings migloramenti on Y300. Can I install it on my g510? I will have some improvements and more?

Or is it better (if possible) install the B190 on the g510?

thank you!

i made a total AOSP version of B190 (ported a lot from AOSP 4.1.2) no more EMUI cool.png

only thing that i can't seem to figger out is how huawei have completely disabled hardware acceleration by default...

even apps that request it to be turned on via the manifest do not work?

the only way it works is to force it via build.prop or the dev settings, only problem is this is applied to every app, which is not good

here are some screenshots from the custom version, (recording 720p @30fps... surprised at how good i have it working, no lag at all :))
