To update your firmware download the Huawei firmware you want and unzip it, there should be a folder called "dload" copy that folder and its contents to your sdcard. Power off phone then hold both volume buttons while powering on the phone, the update should start.

So I who installed the custom rom had the old firmware on the phone?

Okay I updated to the B136 with firmware update thingy.
Wondering will I be able to have the overclock option?
Also when pressing the volume buttons in sleep mode wakes it up how can I prevent it?
Will my wifi connection now not drop randomly after active use and will it be reconnect when I wake it up faster than before?

**EDIT**
After firmware update I seem to have lost clockworkmod, should do same thing again now?
Install again the clockworkmod?

Yes you will need to re install Clockwork as it wipes the recovery partition.

I was wondering you mentioned that the B136 had overclock ability and optimized kernel, however I see no ability now to raise my CPU and it feels somewhat sluggish.

No you cannot Overclock with the standard Kernel but there is one on XDA that can be overclocked to over 1.5 :D

Also im not having any problems with it being sluggish, all working fine for me so not going to bother overclocking it.

Swype seems to be missing from 136 for me too, but I never use it.

Also volume keys wake it from standby for me too so this must be standard.

Hope this helps :D

Seen it kinda like it, thinking about adding it soon to the phone !
Here is a note from me with testing the B160 rom from XDA.
It runs 30% faster than B136 rated this with quadrant and linpack benchmark, call voice quality is great, camrecording is faster. Flash 10.3 works !
Games run faster, wifi doesn't drop when actively used. Battery life is stronger than with my stock B133 and B136, and I had it overclocked.
Overall I am really happy with the B160, if you have high standards of a ROM, then go for B160.

Change the following from "false" to "true" to enable key unlocking screen.
ro.config.hw_menu_unlockscreen=false

Change the following from "240" to "225" to increase the resolution of the display.
ro.sf.lcd_density=240

Change the following from "24m" to "32m" MAY help increase stability and performance.
dalvik.vm.heapsize=24m

Could you change that part with a before and after change values. I know it might sounds stupid but I would recommend making it "stupidfied"(simplified) easier for certain people, maybe like me.

How do I install that gingerbread theme? I'm getting my Ideos x5 next week, but I don't want to root him. But if I do, is it harmfull for my device?

Thank you.

Btw, you've posted something over this theme on XDA, but the hyperlinks in your post are all linking to a picture ;)
