I notice on the Chinese Huawei site they have a phone called a C8812 which specs wise looks very similar to the U8815. The difference being that it's CDMA rather GSM. Interestingly in the download section it has ICS. Can any of the devs get anything useful out of it?

It is according to http://www.aliexpres...holesalers.html

Looks like it also has a front facing camera and the rear one is only 3.2mp without a flash but other than that the cpu and ram and bits look the same. I'm no expert I just thought maybe there's something that could be used on the G300

Looks quite interesting. I'll see if I can rip it apart and check for any differences. I just hope it uses the old Huawei update process. The new one doesn't work with the unpacking script, and I doubt it will flash on our phones.

Yeah a rom dump may be of more use than the stock rom!

The download link for the rom @ http://bbs.anzhi.com...147045-1-1.html is http://115.com/file/bejm058j

No idea what the rom is about but it was the first one I could get a download link for

It's very slow...

Please nobody mistake this for a G300 ROM! Don't flash it to your phone.

"ro.board.platform=msm7627a" from the build.prop so maybe not any use to us?

I made a mirror in case anyone is still interested http://www.multiuplo...o.uk/BPZ7SKFEIO

No, unfortunately not. This once again is a UPDATE.APP image, which cannot be extracted with any available tools (yet). I'm looking on some chinese forum with the help of Google Translate :wacko: It seems there are other custom ROMs available. I'll try to get one

Update: Ok, I got an image from here. This has a "normal" image. I'll try flashing it

I think it is most likely that it will not flash at all or will flash but not boot.
Flashing is recoverable TPT is not,a tpt could easily brick your device if you used wrong one or one that was corrupt.

What happens if they change your partition sizes, then your a bit stuck if you want to go back a la B888

To change partition sizes it would have to be a tpt or official update which would be tpt also,flashing cannot change partitions.

If the zip only contains a selection of the following...

System
Metainf
Boot.img
Data

Then there's no chance of bricking. Only boot loops or hangs at Huawei logo. But its been confirmed roms are interchangeable between 18 and 15 variants.
