It's good to hear this is fixable in software after all. Presumably the differences between people saying they had the problem and those that don't depends on which ROM they're using. I'm glad I didn't go through the hassle of returning mine now.


Yep :D

I imagine though that if you changed ROM through CWM it wouldn't fix the problem - for example using CM9 or AtomicMod didn't fix the problem - it was only when I used an UPDATE.APP that it got fixed. Had to be a complete software update

I wonder what exactly is in the UPDATE.APP that fixes it, and whether it can be extracted for use with other ROMs?

Could be extracted but the problem is how do we flash it?

Well I don't know, and I don't know what the fix actually is. If it's a new kernel maybe we have to wait for Huawei to release the kernel sources?

It won't be a new kernel. The fix applies to CM9 and CWM.

Fixed with UK B892 update. Once B892 official update has updated the firmware you can then restore your nandroid backup to fix it for whatever GB ROM you are running.

At least that's what worked for me. Now back on Modaco Gr2 but with the screen misalignment still fixed.

ICS update fixes it as well but this works for those who can't or won'[t go there yet.

Just another confirmation that ICS (b926) fixed it for me.

Thanks for that. I wonder what the fix is, then, if it stays fixed no matter what ROM you use? Maybe it's some kind of firmware fix for the display hardware.

Yes. It definitely updates the low level firmware as part of the sequence.
