  1. The guys at XDA forums have made a CM11 rom that works, i have installed it myself. There are 3 known bugs: 1. the flash doens't work when taking photos, it works as a torch though. 2. the wifi mac address is a random mac address not the one that the phone was designed to use, the creator of the rom can't figure out where to find the mac address at the moment. 3. the notification LED stays a solid colour instead of flashing every couple of seconds.   Here is the thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/android/help/to-root-huawei-y500-t2923318   I have updated the 1st post with links to roms and gapps.
  2. possibly, feel free to start one and post a link in this thread.
  3. Just thought i'd let people know that you can get this for phone for £44.99 on PAYG now from o2: http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/huawei-ascend-y550-4g-smartphone-payg-44-99-o2-free-delivery-2135152   available for £34.99 on payg upgrade here: http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/4g-phone-under-45-huawei-ascend-y550-34-99-payg-upgrade-44-99-for-purchase-cpw-2145573   I have updated the 1st post with links to root and TWRP download and email info for getting your bootloader unlock code.
  4. did you make a backup image of your phone as there are no backup roms available?
  5. Wow, that would be amazing! I'd be happy with CM11 for the life of the phone as android 4.4.4 is excellent, good enough to last several years especially as it has google play services.
  6. AWESOME! Lets hope Huawei release the source code soon and we can finally have a Cyanogenmod rom made.
  7. We are just waiting on the source code for the Y550, after that we can have a TWRP and CWM for it and then someone can make a cyanogenmod rom for it and we will be rid of EMUI :)
  8. An english TWRP for the Y550 instead of a foreign language CWM made for the G620S would be fantastic :)
  9. New Phone ??

    Huawei Y550 is £49.95 on PAYG upgrade from carphonewarehouse, it has Android 4.4.4 (kernel 3.10.28), a snapdragon 410 64bit, 1gb ram, 4gb rom, micro sd, 4.5" 480x854, 5mp rear, 2mp front, 720p front+back. Huawei G620S has same chip but better screen and a few other things, don't think that is on sale in the uk.   bootloader unlocks with code from huawei for Y550, root solution works too. Phone was released in November 2014, no source code YET, hopefully soon, at least 1 person has said they will make a TWRP/CWM for it then we will just need a cyanogenmod rom creating.   Huawei Y550 specs: http://www.gsmarena.com/huawei_ascend_y550-6676.php
  10. make sure you sent your bootloader code request to: [email protected]   I sent mine to a different email address and got no response. The above address sent me my bootloader code just 4 hours later.
  11. Huawei G620s support?

    If you search for my Y550 thread you will see links to french and german forums on that page that have root and CWM for this phone. There is no custom roms available yet though
  12. have you tried unlocking bootloader, rooting and installing CWM on a Y550 svesh?
  13. 218ppi, this is on the specs list on the gsmarena link in my 1st post. The screen looks nice, i'm very happy with it :)
  14. I think all huawei phones can have their bootloaders unlocked by contacting huawei via email i believe?
  15. there are video reviews on youtube showing the phone in use. The user interface isn't too bad, the settings app, looks poor from a visual perspective but it pretty much stock in terms of functionality. The only bad thing is their keyboard but i downloaded google keyboard from the play store, works perfectly in all apps and after reboots. I'm very happy with the phone it is fast, has 4g so i can use my 100MB 4g free data per month for life sim that i got for £5. There's enough room for all my apps, if this could be rooted we could install apps to an sd card too. I'm sure someone will make a CM rom within the next few months then we can have a nice stock UI for everything, no huawei apps and not be forced to have so many google apps pre-installed as i don't use many of them.   Google doesn't have a "google dialer/contacts" app on play store, would prefer the android stock one.
