As title states?
Will there ever be any soon?
Also if it were to happen, what firmware would it be based on?
As B136 has lots of improvements and same goes to B160, where they seem to have added lots of optimizations, such as speed ups for the camera while recoding(720p). Calling people, where the voice sounds much clearer than the stock(B133) and B136 had.

Thanks in advance !

No think Paul has too much on at the moment but Flibblesan will be making one and his ROMs are usually epic ;)

Why not B160?
It has more things added than B136?

B136 is a newer build than the B160 Chinese ROM.

Also it will be an MCR, just done by myself not Paul.

I also support you in doing some new ROMs for this phone, so it will attract more users and the phone itself will be more usable.

I grabbed that ROM, it is Android 2.2.2 and recent-ish so I'm using this. It's definitely newer than the B160 China rom.

It's hard to know for sure. If huawei used the same kernel source for both models then it would be easy to recompile another kernel to be compatible with th U8800H. But if they used a different source it would be nearly impossible I think because you never know what code they have changed to enable the radio in the H model.

Sad that there are two different versions for similar devices from same company.

It's a newer build than B136 and built from Android 2.2.2 so it's the very very last Froyo code. So in theory it should have a lot of bug fixes.

I'm running it and I don't have any problems.
