    [G6-U00] [ROM] 4.4.2 with EMUI 3.0 and dual SIM support for Huawei Ascend G6-U00
    Hi,
     
    This is a mod of an Android 4.4.2 ROM featuring EMUI 3.0 and dual SIM support for Huawei Ascend G6-U00. The ROM is based on the B322 firmware update as is a significant improvement over an earlier 4.4.2 version that had Caller ID and other issues. I no longer have time to work on this ROM (I simply need my G6 for work) so I am posting it as is in hope someone might feel like polishing it further, or simply download and use.
     
    The ROM works flawlessly. Rooted. No GApps (can be flashed separately), although Google Play framework is present.
     
    Serious issues:
    None noticed. Minor issues:
    A 3G/4G switch is present in Settings but, naturally, don't expect 4G to work on a 2G/3G-only phone - the max you will get will be HSPA+ irrespective of the switch setting. The original FlyIME Chinese/Latin keyboard is the only one bundled. Other keyboards can surely be downloaded from Play Store or flashed. A few attempts to add Google keyboard to the ROM failed but maybe someone with more knowledge feels like incorporating e.g. the AOSP keyboard in the ROM and remove 40+ MB FlyIME (and all its subfolders)? A few unnecessary .so files might have remained in /system/lib after junk apps were deleted. They have no impact on the system performance but feel free to inspect and remove them as appropriate. Kinguser app for root management. I did not succeed with replacing it with Superuser or SuperSU on my previous version of a similar ROM and now did not have time (nor motivation) to experiment with this ROM. Kinguser works well, though. It is not the latest version but will update itself on the first run. Google boot animation is for a different resolution and will benefit from replacing. Remember to clean wipe/format all internal partitions before installing!

    By far this is the best ROM I have had on G6-U00, and if someone took an hour or two to polish out the minor issues above, this would make it an ultimate ROM for this G6-U00.

    Was a good ROM to try - thanks Daz. After a month of use I now went back to Slim ROM - true it's ICS 4.0.4, not JB, but the ROM is incredibly fast and bug-free.

    Don't know if that's of any use to you but you can get your phone unlocked (SIM-lock removal) on eBay for a few quid, no need to change/downgrade ROMs.

    For example: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/181084439187.

    Seems you are trying to flash from stock recovery. For flashing third-party ROMs you need to have custom recovery installed - e.g., ClockworkMod Recovery.

    Double-check if the phone is rooted.

    Dead link. These seem permanent: http://androidapkdow...k-download.html, http://androapk.org/volume-volume-boost-1-9-0-3-apk.html

    Thanks. Unfortunately, turning Window Animation scale off has no effect in this ROM. Broken function?

    Hard to call this effect classy.

    Confirming the trick with replacing ContactProvider.app works great on this build - Facebook contacts now integrated (with low-res pics, though).

    I also wonder whether it would be possible to unlock contacts app for Facebook as described here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2064859

    Yesterday updated from stock B952 which I used for several weeks. Fantastic work, Daz!

    Issues compared to B925:
    Notification LED purple only, as mentioned earlier
    Faulty WiFi thethering, as mentioned earlier (configures ok and displays as "on" but in fact no WiFi)
    A noticeable delay (a fraction of a second) compared to stock, pretty much on every action - gives a bit sluggish feeling
    Significantly reduced touch sensitivity (needs stronger taps to react) than B952
    Unpleasant horizontal blink when screen going to sleep - exactly like switching off an old CRT TV
    Network name: EE wrongly displayed as "TMO UK" in the Drawer (in fact, T-Mobile UK renamed its network id to EE in October 2012; B936 and B952 already had it right).
    Go2Backup: extremely slow restore - 600 texts + 500 calls took more than 20 minutes (as compared to 2-3 minutes on earlier firmware)
    Random crashes in Launch Tools (e.g., always on accessing Sync Tester)

    No problem with stock camera - takes pics okay. Pic quality not checked.

    Hope this helps.

    Cyanogen Recovery 6 working, now updating to Dazzozo's 10.1.
    Man, after my two nights of fighting with the phone you rescued me in just two sentences!

    You are a genius! Run root again, then recovery flashed fine.
    Now, it seems that was a wrong recovery (CM 5) because the phone does not start to recovery on start + vol up. Stuck on HW logo...
    Trying to flash other recoveries (CM 6, open recovery, etc.), hope one of them will be working...
