Just found a B888 ROM from Huawei - the instructions in the rar file say it's for U8815 and looks legit. I'll be flashing it just now and seeing what it looks like

how do we know if it isn't someone (not aimed at you kasio at all) who decided to steal passwords from enthusiatic G300 users and put it out there on a public file sharing website?

like the unlock thing on xda?

Nothing remarkable, but it feels a lot more solid than the demo B886. Volume is fine, an touchscreen seems more responsive, though that may be my imagination.

Capacitive button responsiveness just played around with them only had to touch the buttons once each time to get them to respond used them all loads of times.

Vodafone I had to keep pushing capacitive buttons.

They will fix the bugs and current issues, then Ics will be coming so I can't see them spending too much time and effort on gingerbread

So does this mean that we can download this firmware update and apply it directly without anything else. I mean is there a specific way or anything else like the previous one...? I'm referring to 'Vendor update files'

Works exactly the same way - instructions in the Word file. It will wipe everything.

Case of installing the firmware, waiting till it reboots, then doing the vendor one.

B888 seems like a more polished, "production" version of the B886 demo.
