This nice device has respectable attention from users and devs in China.
Diligent devs and moders made a bunch of interesting roms for it.
At this place, I will bring those interesting roms, something I used to do here
on Modaco - while my Huawei g300 was with me.
Roms - post #2
For those of you that still don`t have rooted device with CWM on, take a look
at this topic. Btw, that nice roms from Bruno are really good.
For the rest of us, here we go now:
Have a nandroid (cwm) backup - just in case (as usual)
Don`t flash those roms immediately if you are not sure what you`re doing.
As first, check chinese rom topics on modaco (Miui, Baidu, Shendu, EMUI, LewaOS, JoyOS, MokeeOS...)
for some specific stuff regarding CWM, updater-script and removing chinese apks.
Majority of chinese roms is bi-lingual: chinese & english.
Some of them have more languages with the help of devs/modders
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. Or rename file extension.
updater-script: If there are lines in script inside META-INF/com/google/android -at the begining of the script, with another phone name, delete those lines
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 opening and saving rom file and notepad++ for editing files
Pull a file from rom opened with 7zip to desktop, edit it and drag it back to rom.
This is just a general guidance.
Please check chinese roms topics on Modaco Huawei g300 forum for more detailed explanations
- You have to be rooted, have to have custom recovery (cwm, maybe twrp)
- Download zip file (rom) and Gapps and transfer that to SDcard
- Turn on debugging on your phone, turn off quick boot, turn off phone (some folks remove battery now:))
- Press vol. up and power button together for 10 seconds.
- You are in CWM now (probably)
- Wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache partition
- Mounts and storage: Format System, Cache, Data. Go back
- Advanced: Wipe Dalvik cache, Reboot recovery
- Install zip from SDcard -> choose zip -> your rom (zip)
- Install zip from SDcard -> choose zip -> gapps for 4.1 or 4.2 (zip)
- Reboot to system
Leave your phone now for 5 minutes, let it take a breath.
Feel free to give comments and links.
Known names of chinese v987 devs and modders:
GTbluesky, Juelian, Lovest3D, EyeAlan...
for MIUI roms, you can find Gapps (google play flashing file) down
in MIUI multilanguage link. Flash gapps after you flash rom and reboot it.
Sometimes it would be good to delete
I will update this post with other relevant stuff...
