Presenting Electra, created by me Kyan31 for the Huawei Ascend G300. This ROM is based on Dazzozo's build of CyanogenMod 10.1 and has been created to bring even more features to an already great ROM, but it also offers many overall enhancements to make your experience even better. As always, there will be more updates to come and i'm happy to receive feedback or new ideas. Anyway, let's get to the features:

Any bugs that CM10.1 has will be present in Electra except for the following:

  • Camera lag - ICS camera is used so the lag is gone
  • Battery - I use a few battery tweaks, so the battery may be improved

Thanks Cyda for the mirrors :)

George109 was kind enough to upload the ROM, GAPPS, and the addons to his mediafire server, so you can download mirrors of my stuff HERE

Attached File  Installation Instructions.png   2.4KB   765 downloads

  • First time user
  • Press the +1 button
  • Download the ROM, the GAPPS, any available patches, and put them on your SD card
  • Boot into recovery
  • Wipe data/factory reset
  • Wipe both dalvik/cache partitions
  • Choose zip, choose the ROM, and install
  • Choose zip, choose GAPPS, and install
  • Choose zip, choose patch (if available) and install
  • Reboot
  • If using TWRP, do not allow it to fix root if it prompts you to. Root is fine on this ROM
  • If coming from another version of Electra
  • PLEASE READ:
  • If you are running a version of Electra that has not been installed with full wipes, do not report bugs as It causes confusion. Installing without full wipes can cause bugs, so full wipes are usually recommended. You can flash without wipes if you wish, but do not report anything to me as it's not my fault! Thank you.
  • Press the +1 button if you haven't already
  • Wipe cache
  • Wipe Dalvik cache
  • Choose zip and then choose the ROM
  • Reboot
  • If using TWRP, do not allow it to fix root if it prompts you to. Root is fine on this ROM
  • You may also have to flash GAPPS again, otherwise the Play Store will disappear.

This ROM is based on CyanogenMod 10.1 R4 meaning it is multibaseband. You can flash it on the 2030 baseband or the 109808 baseband without any problems.

The first boot always takes longer, so make a cup of tea while you're waiting. I also recommend giving the device an extra 5 minutes even after boot to ensure a smooth experience. Once you have done this, have fun :)

If you like the ROM, hit that +1 button!

You can also +1 the Addons/FAQ section as it gives me a better reputation on the MoDaCo forums  :P

Thanks  :)

FAQ Updated 15/05/2013 - 20:08 PM BST

NOTICE

OTA UPDATES...

If you are on Electra V3, it means you are running the latest software. You may still get bugged to update via the OTA updater as the updater is buggy, if so just disable the OTA notification.


Electra V3 is out! Download now :)

ADD ON's AVAILABLE

BUGS: If you find any bugs or errors, please don't tell me about it unless you have the following:
  • You must have a clean install of Electra
  • Logcat
  • List of installed mods/fixes/etc.
  • Patience, don't expect a fix instantly
If you have restored WiFi points with GoBackup or a similar tool, please don't report bugs with WiFi as the tool is to blame. Other things could also be affected, so it might be best to not report bugs at all.

FAQ

Q: What does the DPI changer do? How do I use it?

A: The DPI changer allows you to change the screen density of your device. A lower DPI will make things on your screen smaller, and a higher DPI will make things bigger. I recommend you stay over 180 DPI as the G300 FC's when under that value, and never go under 130 as android cannot support it. This will cause your phone to bootloop, but there is a fix available in the addons to go back to the original DPI (240)

Q: What information of mine is sent to your statistics page?

A: The only information that is sent is a unique id, your device name (u8815), ROM version and name (Electra Vx), Country (GB, FR, ES etc.), and the carrier. These are quite a few factors, but the only person that can see them is me. The website it's sent to is public, but only the amount of installs is shown. Everything else is private. The factors are also completely anonymous and they can be turned off at any time. I would appreciate it if you left statistics on, but at the same time I don't want to to feel uncomfortable if it does infact, 'make you uncomfortable'.

Here is the statistics site if you want to take a quick look:

Click me

Q: How do I use Pie Control

A: Like this:

Spoiler


Q: Why can't I see the developer options/performance options?

A: Because they are not enabled on first boot. To enable them permanently, tap the build number 5 times in About.

Possible network fix for CM10.1/Electra

I swapped the RIL from CM10.1 R2 to R3, hopefully this might fix the network drop issues. Flash it like normal:

DOWNLOAD

Flash this to go back to the original RIL

DOWNLOAD

I advise you only flash this on the 2030 baseband, though there is a possibility it will work on the 109808 baseband too. You can just do a nandroid backup, and try it out.

PATCH - 27/04/2013

This patch should fix any problems with 3rd party launchers FC'ing. Flash without wipes:

DOWNLOAD | Only needed on Electra V2

PATCH - 05/05/2013

This patch will fix the camera bug and it will correct the spelling mistake in the Electra settings. Unfortunately the camera resolution will have to stay at 640x480 for now, but maybe in the future I can work on a fix.

DOWNLOAD | Only needed on Electra V3

Boost Electra's performance

After some sleuthing, it seems that the battery tweaks in my ROM cause Electra's performance to decrease. Fortunately, I have made some ZIP's which can remove the battery tweaks and increase the performance.

Performance Booster - Will improve the performance, and may fix wakelock, but your battery will be back like stock CM10.1 | Only for Electra V2

Battery Booster - You may have a slight decrease in performance, but your battery will be noticeably improved | Only for Electra V2

Performance Booster - Will improve the performance, and may fix wakelock, but your battery will be back like stock CM10.1 | Only for Electra V3

Battery Booster - You may have a slight decrease in performance, but your battery will be noticeably improved | Only for Electra V3

Yeah, it took me double the time as Dazzozo released R3 meaning I had to rebase it :P

However it's all good now, it was worth it.

Does this rom have signal drop down like cm 10.1 r3 by Dazzo? If so, can you make zip for those who want to use this rom only on 2030 baseband with 2030 ril version or something? :)
