B888 doesn't lock the bootloader, but there's no *must* about updating to B888. Move to it if you wish but be aware of partition problem making downgrade impossible (or at least, very hard).
Im just get the phone... and Im reading around...
Must I update to B888? or wait some days for B9x, ICS?
Are the B888 blocking BL?

That's interesting. I wonder if it is possible to also get the same effect by putting a 2GB FAT partition on a larger SD card, instead of buying a smaller card?
I purchased a new fast 16GB Samsung micro SD card which came out of the bubble wrap formatted as FAT32. Trying to do the normal upgrade with this card failed - the first 'unpacking' upgrade screen produces a warning triangle and the notice 'Upgrade failed'. I retried with a known good 2GB card formatted to FAT and the whole upgrade went 100% smoothly. The new 16GB card worked fine for normal use - it seems there is a limit applied by Android for firmware updates in respect of the card that can be used. So use a small card and format it plain FAT (not FAT32) if you have problems.

I'm not into all the custom ROMS etc., but one day, I'll probably just port over an AOSP ROM (which seems easy, whilst researching), when the phone is discontinued by Huawei. Until then, looking forward to seeing what else they bring, like ICS. Should be good!
Also, just read today, that Huawei have started releasing Emotion UI beta to their other phones. Should be expecting a version for our phones pretty soon. It's their own version of the HTC Sense GUI.
Regarding Liam_D's post, I have a Samsung 32GB Class 10 microSDHC card that worked out of the box. I can't seem to remember whether it was formatted to FAT or FAT32, but I've had no problems so far. I'm surprised that these phones can even support these high-end cards!

I'm having some issues flashing the vendor update. I think it's just not working. I flashed the B888 firmware and then deleted that update.app and reflashed again. (the vendor folder was always in my sd card)
I can't find the huawei apps nor the notification controls.
I might be doing something wrong...
