And I was happy that mine came with B886 from the shop.

Guess I'll be flashing this.. :L

EDIT: Are we not getting screenies or shall I do some again?
EDIT 2: Once apps/data is backed up, I will do some screens,

Power control widget doesn't have the data toggle but just noticed there is another widget called toolbox rewrite built in to B888 that adds on the data toggle. Sweet.

Seems faster and the sound issue is fixed which is a major reason for doing it.

Keys seems better, touch screen still not ultra responsive but my day to day phone is a green fruit so maybe that is not a fair viewpoint.

Loaded some apps and it still seems fast.

And mine froze doing the vendor file also and needed a battery pull!

Just done mine up to B888, did not need battery pull on either update file, I did mine through Settings ----> Storage ----> Software upgrade rather than the force method.

Will do benchmarks in a mo.

EDIT:
BenchMark and Tuning Free: Average of 5345 (Beats Huawei U8800, LG-P970, STM803HC and LG-P500,
performance nearly on par with a Sony Erricson WT19i! (score increase of 433 points, 8% increase in performance)
(5202, 5470, 5362)

AnTuTu Benchmark v2.7.3: 2923, a small improvement of 46 points (2972, 2873) (rounded to nearest whole number)

CF-Bench: 3175 (3335, 2936, 3256) Small dip in performance, but I'm sure rooting and changing the governor will bring out greater scores.

There looks to be a problem restoring to older Huawei ROMs and Clockworkmod backups! I think it is the partition sizes have been altered after flashing B888. I've updated the first post and will update it once I have found a solution. Any help appreciated!

Thanks for the heads up on this I was about to start downloading the ROM after reading the Goolgedoc! I saw the big red text on the first post just as I went to start the download! Thanks.

Post for info

After updating to B888 I have spent time trying to restore b882, b884, b886 from CWM - failed

I tried to install b882, b884, b886 using forced update via dload folder - failed

I tried team win recovery b882, b884, b886, - failed

Restore or install of b888 over b888 works all 3 methods - as does the install of super recovery, CWM and Team windows recovery if you have B888 installed

So I guess untill someone is able to resize the partitions and packages it up to reflash the original partitions, if you have B888 you wont be able to downgrade (for the time being)

I think if you just restore system, data and cache partitions it might let you restore your old nandroid backups.

I used the built in Huawei backup app. It restored all the settings perfectly fine for me.

I will run the B888 update and restore apps & settings with Titanium backup. Will let you know what happens but I don't foresee any problems.

Don't know if it's been posted but Huawei sent me a post on facebook saying: Hello. We expect an update to be available tomorrow. We will update you during the day. Thanks for bearing with us.

oops just spotted Patrick's post saying the same thing :)
