1. Has Huawei confirmed when (other than 'this year'!) they expect to release ICS for the G300?

2. Has any Dev started looking at rolling their own ICS ROM for this phone (@tilal) :) ?

TIA,
dan

Huawei have only said second half of this year/summer. I think end of July but that is a wild guess.

In other words, tilal6991 is a clever guy and as soon as he gets one of these phones he'll bring ICS to you all much sooner than Huawei :lol:

Also as this handset is running on a ARMv7 SoC it should make things a whole lot smoother for the ICS porting, seeing as CM is mostly compiling CM9 for ARMv7 smartphone handsets, well thats how I see it... :P

I'm trying to get an official line from Huawei on when we can expect an ICS release... and the kernel of course!

I'm sure someone said that in the phone booklet, it says you can send off for the sourcecode. Cost was £20 I think it was.

I really think they could be rushing out the official ICS update soon, this b886 build has nothing wrong with it seems faster/more polished than the stock voda rom so i cant see why it would take so long just to get a little speaker fix.

From what I understand the manufacturer releases a stock rom to all the operators they sell the phone to and they sit on it while they customise it and add their bloatware. The speed of release seems to have more to do with how many bureaucratic hoops it has to jump through before someone finally pushed the button and everyone gets notified there's an OTA update.
AT&T and Verizon in america have both pushed through quick updates on phones to get some free advertising on cnet, engadget etc but you just don't see that happening over here.
