I've actually re-installed the touchpal keyboard as I got quite used to it's predictive text and could knock out sentences really fast. I hear the Swype one is a bit better but the Touchpal one is free.

I've been using Swype for about 18 months firstly on my OSF and now on my G300 and so far it has always been free. I think Swype is one of those 'love it or hate it' things and personally I love it.

Upgraded to B888 a short while ago. It's a nice relief to be finally rid of all the Vodafone junk and be able to tailor the phone to my wants. Also as has already been said the capacitive buttons are a heck of a lot more responsive now. Just feels a better experience overall. I know I could of rooted it earlier and dicked about junking all the voda stuff, but I had a feeling something like this might be along eventually.

TouchPal have a swipe version aswell.

Quick question. Those who upgraded to B888 via the default Huawei method, are you able to use iPlayer? I've noticed mine is not showing any programmes, and I have tried on multiple networks. Flashing B888 is (what I think) the only thing that changed..

My fault, I found that the Flash apk was in /system/apply rather than /data/app, so iPlayer couldn't load it. Doh.

Use Rom Toolbox for removing any apps that titanium can't.



Use root explorer and delete touchpal stuff from the misc partition.


Well, I tried both, first it seemed that Toolbox removed the keyboard, but after reboot TouchPal appeared again. I checked all the partitions, but couldn't find it with RootExplorer, so I gave it up, not a big deal. :)


Edit: Okay, finally I've found it with RootExplorer, it's located in cust/normal/europe/app folder. Thanks!

Hi guys

I've been using the B888 ROM for about a week now, all seems perfectly fine on the phone.

Just one little niggle really... I'm not sure if anyone else is having the same issue. Basically, when using the phone dialer the layout of the numbers seems international i.e. 123-456-78910. Etc. now I'd like it to be UK style i.e. 01234 456789 as it was in the original ROM. Any ideas how this can be sorted out...?

I have this problem too, don't think its rom based though. I just checked my language settings and I'm on UK English. I had this problem on the blade too. My guess is that its a google accounts glitch. I'm from the States, and so I have both UK and US phone numbers in my contacts, and I always guessed that google accounts decide to read the US format, and then assumed that's what I needed, and it then changed all my numbers into the US format (including UK one's) Good thing is, it doesn't effect calls, just the way the numbers are displayed.

I don't have the G300 yet, but on a similar problem on a couple of other phones, I used 'more locale 2' https://play.google.....ccl.morelocale to sort it out easily.

Can't say it'll definitely sort the problem, but perhaps worth a try. Back up first! :-)

I also have the locale problem. Under "Language & keyboard settings -> Select language", I can only choose "English" which is English (US); no option for British English.

Mine is set to "English (United Kingdom)" and I'm on the B888 rom. The funny thing is though that if I go into the language selection I can only see "English" available as an option and not any particular variant of English.

Have these roms made any difference to the phone's signal? Mine kept dropping from 3 bars to 0 then back again constantly, so I took it back.
