You answered it yourself. The G300 is ARMv7 and doesn't have that issue as it isn't a discontinued platform.

Either way, how do you expect Huawei to manage ICS officially if there was no OpenMAX support?

I wish I knew how to dev roms and such. How/where do you even learn?
Is there some course I do not know of? O.o


Other than the basics of building and some wiki pages on the basics of Android, you pretty much go it your own.

The RIL stuff I was doing is totally uncharted territory. No documentation at all.

Why you installing this? I'm sure it's been scrapped in favour of CM10. Try Infusion, it's a finished working ROM.

Then upgrade your baseband? There's almost no reason to be using the old one unless you prefer Gingerbread.

Daz got a question, or anyone that can answer this, It might me nooby or not, there's a reason why Im asking this :)

I have 2030 baseband, and If i flash this rom, will it change it to 109808?

if it does, will i still be able to revert to my restore option and my 2030 basebanded rom will work gr8? just worried as this was the case of my phone stuffing up before.

If you flash this ROM while you have a 2030 baseband, you will have a MP4/MP5 player instead a movile phone. The baseband won´t change and is going a be "like" no SIM inserted on the phone. Restoring a 2030 ROM backup or installing 2030 ROM will back all to run.
Regards.

You guys really need to get your heads around this. The phone has radio firmware (the baseband) that is completely out of the ROM's control. The baseband is updated in the official updates and cannot be touched outside of that process yet (ever?).

A ROM can only support a single baseband version. As far as I know, it comes down to a bunch of proprietary blobs (some bins, some libs) that handle RIL. I never really cared enough to investigate it, though. I just mass updated all of the props I had when the ICS update came about.

There is also another, separate issue that prevents the 3.0.8 kernel booting on a pre-B926 device. I'm not sure what it is but it's somewhere in the graphics/framebuffer area. This means that you can't run a ROM designed for the 2030 baseband on 109808 anyway, because it wouldn't even boot due to this issue. Huawei must've done something to the device beyond the kernel in this area in preparation for the ICS update. (the question is what?)

It might be possible to be able to "convert" a ROM to work on your baseband version by means of a flashable zip containing just the RIL props. The issue described above may cripple the potential of that.

Eventually I would like to see someone get Gingerbread working on a post-B926 device. :P
