Originally I intended to keep the builds private since I only did the ports as a learning excercise. However I shared the last build with some people and had positive feedback which has encouraged me to share the ROM with everyone.
About the ROM
The ROM is built upon the MIUIAndroid HTC Desire Z ROM as this is the closest officially supported device to the U8800. MIUIAndroid was chosen since they are cleaner and closer to the original MIUI ROMs than other projects, and Stockwell already has a very good MIUI.us port over on XDA. Full respect must go out to Stockwell as without his very hard work and dedication I would never have had the chance to play with MIUI and get so addicted to it.
The ROM supports both English and Chinese languages. Other languages can be applied by using the relevant Desire Z pack from your local translation teams.
Known issues that may affect you
- Some users may still have non-functional camera. Please let me know
- Internet tethering currently does not work.
- 802.1x EAP with phase 2 authentication WiFi does not function properly.
- WiFi drops if your router uses a very long DHCP lease time.
- Minimum brightness level is virtually off. Some people like it, some don't.
- Green line in photos taken at 5MP. Less than it was earlier but still visible. Switch to 3MP to remove for now.
This ROM utilises a kernel originally developed by Huawei with improvements by Stockwell, DZO and Franco. The kernel was forked by myself and modified to fit in with my own personal requirements. Full source is available at github.com/flibblesan/u8800-2.6.32
MIUI & MIUIAndroid for the original ROM and translations. Several libs built from source provided by DZO on his Oxygen github with thanks. This port also includes libs built from CyanogenMod 7 code provided by HCDR.Jacob. Any proprietary libs taken from stock Huawei ROMs.

1.9.23 ONLY 4-way reboot mod from this thread.
4-way build that will work from lockscreen only, meaning, long pressing the power button in any situation other than lockscreen will pull down the toggles courtain. For this to work you have to turn off the "Disable on lockscreen" switch in Button Settings under System tab.
