I can confirm that an over the air update is now available which fixes the low volume issue.

To apply the update :
1. Open settings
2. Scroll down to 'About phone'
3. Choose 'Online upgrade'
4. Choose 'Firmware upgrade'

Update will show. Its a small 14mb download.
Just wait for download and either apply now or later.

Make sure you have decent remaining battery.
The update takes about 2 minutes.

Martin.

It does fix low volume and there is already a thread for the B885 rom/update.

Bah! Mine tells me it "Communication with the server failed. Unable to obtain the new versions list". This is on WiFi, which is defintely working because I am able to browse the web. Will try again later. Reluctant to switch to B888 until I am certain I will not have to return my phone because of that wretched screen problem.

OK. I'm back.
Lost old credentials.

So I've a G300 rooted & unlocked.
Its never been near Vodafone services nor will it ever.

We are for reasons I cannot recall O2 ( but I do live in hope that one day I'll be on a China Mobile contract in the UK & save myself a bundle)

So wise people ...how do I patch the G300 without an OTA connection to Vodafone- so that I can hear it ring ?

You can flash any of the ROMs that fixes the speaker problem, B886 for example, following the instructions detailed here

Got my phone today and updated it with the release. I have sound but the phone is much less responsive now, especially when swiping the screen. It was far more fast and smooth in operation before the upgrade. Disappointing.

The updater posts various stuff to this address:

D/HwOUC   (  841): HttpCommunicator -> http://query.hicloud.com:80/sp_ard_common/urlcommand/CheckNewVersion.aspx

which gives back this:
D/HwOUC   (  841): HttpCommunicator -> http://update.hicloud.com:8180/TDS/data/files/p3/s15/G104/g0/v2063/f4/full/filelist.xml

and then you can download the following two files:
D/HwOUC   (  841): HttpCommunicator -> http://update.hicloud.com:8180/TDS/data/files/p3/s15/G104/g0/v2063/f4/full/changelog.xml
D/HwOUC   (  841): HwOucUtility -> startFirmwareDownload(),5,http://update.hicloud.com:8180/TDS/data/files/p3/s15/G104/g0/v2063/f4/full/update.zip

Well I managed to retrieve the OTA update from my home WiFi (after my problems at work earlier) but the update is not installing. When the phone reboots to apply the update it goes to ClockworkMod and there is a report about not finding the update zip file. If I manually direct it to the file, it opens it but then reports an error about being unable to verify it and refuses to install it.

The update does some stuff I've never seen before, rather than replacing loads of files, some of them have a patch applied, the version of amend that comes with CWMR does not support that.. I'm not sure if its a huawei custom thing or just a newer version of amend,, but its very interesting..

EDIT:

Actually I just realized that the stock recovery has two extra executables, apply_patch & apply_patch_check, thats what it's using... lots of references it to on google being used on other devices.. I'll look into that, tho

Indeed. I am using the update facility through about phone --> online upgrade --> firmware upgrade. It downloads the patch, I choose the option to install now, it immediately reboots the phone and after a few seconds it shows an Android with an exclamation mark. Pressing the 'back' capacitive button brings up the CWM menu.

For the time being you'r going to have to revert to the stock recovery to apply the update I'm afraid.

Thanks for your efforts anyway, Sebastian404. It's no biggie to be honest. I think I am going to bite on the bullet and install b888 despite my concerns about the screen. I am hoping that some clever people will figure out how to restore it to stock before too long anyway. I'll take my chances.

Cheers.

Hi,
Ive just tried to update the G300 to this firmware, it downloaded ( over wi-fi ) I pressed to install now, the phone turned off and then restarted with a blue screen.
This was last night and was still like that this morning.
Is there anyway of recovering the phone or what has gone wrong?

Thanks

Hoping for some help with ringer volume.
My phone is unlocked and rooted but is still on original ROM
in ABOUT PHONE it says the following....

mod. no. U8815
AND. 2.3.6
BASEBAND 109808
BUILD U8815V100R001CO2B892


I have tried the procedure in the OP but the response is

NO UPDATES ARE AVAILABLE

I'm quite happy with the phone as it is. I don't need ICS, all I want is to hear the phone ring!
To add to the problem I have a hearing impairment and have a hearing aid. Despite this I was always able to hear my old San Francisco.
