Its quite unlikely, considering it was last updated 6 months ago today.

Hello. I have some really important stuff to do. This means I will be away for the forum for at least a month (from 8.5.14). 

Therefore you will receive no replies to any PMs

Please post in the forum instead. You will get more help.

:excl:A WARNING TO ALL G300 OWNERS! Please Read! (The Flash Memory Problem!) :excl:

Tutorial: How To (Officially) Unlock Your Bootloader! (The long way, but which definitely works)

Please, Do not use the HuaweiG300.com Tutorial on how to unlock your bootloader, it is better to unlock it officially with my tutorial!

Spoiler

My Device:

Huawei Ascend G300 (U8815) - Sold!

Samsung Galaxy S4 (Black) - The LTE Version - GT-I9505

(Ignore the links above (if there is one). It's a skimwords (advertising) link and nothing to do with me!)

The ROMS I have used:

Spoiler

Download Blink, a great app that controls the status LED on the G300!

Wait for 5 seconds and then click skip ad! Do not download anything in the ad window, that is not the app!

Did I help you?

If I did, Please press the rep_up1.png button, in the bottom right hand corner of my posts.

(If not, Press it anyway!)

If I really helped you, you could also donate to me. Thanks!  :)

I would love some update too.

I tried the current version -- for those who missed that, there are fastboot images few pages back, and the directory listing they are in says that they are relatively current, though I don't know when Mozilla pushed the 1.0 update, and it basically works, but not really.
- Basic UI works, but it appears it doesn't know how big the screen is, so everything is really small. Okay something is scaled correctly, like keyboard, but lot of things aren't.
- The GUI works differently from android -- it took me some time to realize it, but you can't use simple taps to run apps, you have to hold the icon for about a second. Otherwise, it will interpret the tap as moving the desktop and not run app. Now, this might not be actual feature and just something broken on g300.
- Some of the UI works strangely. Sometimes the UI won't accept me clicking on input field. Mail does this, for example.
- Here maps have hillariously the same problems they have in the simulator, when run, they will show you folder, and you have to select index.html to start them ;)
- Video doesn't work.
- MP3 player works.
- Marketplace doesn't work.
- Phonecalls, sms work.

I guess the screen DPI is set somewhere in the build process, but since I didn't build it and just fastboot flashed it, I don't know. But I will take a look at the build process later, perhaps on the weekend.

It's a shame no one continues this port, it's pretty close to being a functional rom.

How is the DPI and speed on your build, I compiled it yesterday from Daz's as per instructions and aside from the fact that everything was much slower then last time I did it the DPI was too small.

I will post some screenshot later :) Speed is nice, ROM is very smooth at least for me
FM Radio didn't work - phone reboot
Camera didn't work
Video player didn't work
It would be nice if Camera works but I don't know where might be a problem

and of course, only home button is working right now

after ./config.sh ascend-g300
git checkout mozillaorg/v1.1.0hd in gaia and gecko folder
and then ./build.sh

maybe it could work with
BRANCH=v1.1.0hd ./config.sh ascend-g300
but i didn't test it

damn...typos everywhere :D

and my .userconfig:
export HIDPI=1
export GAIA_OPTIMIZE=1
export GAIA_DEV_PIXELS_PER_PX=2

It runs fine now but the DPI is still wrong. With camera and other small fixes this could be a good rom. Also no file manager...
