Surfing on several china g300 phone (it`s U8818 over there!) forums brings pleasant surprises every now and then,
so - why not sharing them...
First link is going to be the original topic - use Chrome for translate
Second link is a download link (sometimes tends to be slow)
Links will bring you to new roms and other interesting stuff
Don`t flash those roms immediately if you are not sure what youre doing.
As first, check chinese rom topics on modaco (Miui, Baidu, Shendu, EMUI, X-UI, LewaOS, JoyOS, MokeeOS...)
for some specific stuff regarding CWM, updater-script and removing chinese apks.
CWM: Sometimes, flashing a chinese rom could bring you a chinese cwm. Delete lines with the word: recovery in updater-script, delete Recovery folder or recovery.img file
Chinese apks: Delete apks (mostly in system/apps folder) with chinese names (hint: ApkSpy) prior to flashing or later, with a root explorer
updater-script: If there are U8818 words, delete those lines at the begining of the script (if there are U8815 words, too - don`t delete lines) in META-INF/com/google/android
hosts file: it is at /etc/hosts Open it and and delete all the lines except localhost 127.0.0.1 (at the beginning): This is mostly for GB&CM7 roms
User interface: All chinese roms have at least english language in settings. It is not hard to find it, but if you fail - do this before flashing:
build.prop: Replace zh to en; CN to US in:
Use 7zip for rom file and notepad++ for editing files
This is just a general guidance. Please check Baidu topics on forum for more detailed explanations
Feel free to give comments and links.

If your download speed is slow you can try Free Download Manager or some other DL manager...
