You should be able to take systemui.apk and frameworkres.apk from xolo to get stock ics theme back.

The build.prop in Pauls system dump has test keys.. When you update the Orange Gingerbread to ICS it should update the build.prop with new values. Does it keep the test keys?

I wonder if Pauls dump is older than the Gingerbread that was on a retail phone. If somebody can upload a system dump from a real retail device updated to ICS with no messing around, that would be great. Even as split archives to dropbox.

If (my) memory serves, Paul's ROMdump was pre-retail release

Genuinely quite tempted to sell my G300 and get one of these now after seeing root access and stock ICS. What do you guys think? If I can bag a SD for ~ £130 would it be worth it from my G300?

Lol it is worth two g300's

The osd is in a different league, only draw back is no sd card, but that may come in future, and locked bootloader, again that may come in future.

The build quality of g300 is quite poor, yes I had one too lol, the osd has very good build quality.

If you are a gamer, then the osd with its 400mhz gpu & 1.6ghz cpu is good, it plays anything, and perfectly,

Hd video is ok, not great, good in reasonable light, grainly in low light, but easily better than g300 camera.

I could go on and on really but it would be easier to just read pauls review, a bit outdated now as we have ics and root, but it gives a good description of the device specs etc:

well i dont know how good the g300 is but i like my osd, even more so now its rooted with ics (just waiting for a sim unlock now).

but if your getting one, get one quick while they are cheaper because now there's progress with the device more people will want one!

I have a feeling they will become obsolete soon though, but I guess that is the way with all Android devices. I'll give it a few days thinking time. And simlock will be a deal breaker as I wanna be on GiffGaff.

Yeah and the price will go back up lol.


edit: why would you think it will become obsolete ? the device just got ics and root, those sales will start picking up now.

Orange don't seem to have any stock of it. Probably phasing it out like Voda did with the G300.

mediafire maybe, but you will have to zip it up into a split archive.

Are you ok to pull system.img too lol, only if you are ok for bandwidth, could be useful in that we can directly flash it through recovery and may find a way to get onto orange for those stuck on xolo?

Greatly doubt that somehow.

Given that the phone is only 4 months old and is still being advertised, I seriously doubt that's the case.

Orange remove out of stock phones from display. Makes sense really since you want customers buying phones you actually have.

I highly doubt this phone has been discontinued 4 months after it was released. Most likely is they will be getting new stock with the ICS update already installed and re-advertising the phone as an ICS device with the QuickTap functionality which Orange are making a big thing off with regards to the Samsung Galaxy S3. The price drop to £169.99 would had cleared off the old Gingerbread stock quite quickly. The work being done in this forum has probably made people buy the phones as well as it being a bloody good price for a fast high-end ICS phone.

So don't worry. Previous Orange-branded Android phones have been sold for at least a year and the San Diego is currently the flagship Orange-branded device.

Another thing is that Orange have had Intel representatives in major Orange stores to show the phone off and answer any questions. Last time I saw them was about 2 weeks ago as the big Orange store closed to be merged into T-Mobile when it's rebranded to EE.

The phone has become more popular since ICS was found. It wouldn't surprise me if Orange simply ran out of devices since demand was quite low for these devices. They may had cut down on production then ICS comes out and demand peaked. The rooting etc on this forum will have helped things.

Demand was very low when the phone was first released due to the apparently locked-down nature of the phone. This ended up being a load of rubbish as a root method was found that works perfectly fine on the Gingerbread ROMs as well as the ICS ROMs. Heck I bet the whole reason we thought the phone was unrootable was down to it being Intel and us needed intel binaries to root with - which we now have. In a way we the community are partially to blame for the low sales.
