KyleMac replied to Dazzozo's topic in Huawei Ascend G510 DevelopmentDaz's ROMs always seem to be some of the most stable. I haven't had any of the weird issues others describe but I find that wiping system before flashing and then flashing both the main ROM and GApps at the same time often helps to avoid issues. This also seems to be the only ROM for the G510 other than ShockeyCzT's modified stock that has fully working SIP (VOIP). But saying all that I have the same battery issues as others: Idle battery is excellent. Maybe 1-2% an hour with WiFi always on and optimise WiFi ticked (I haven't really tested idle out of WiFi range). Battery life under normal usage (even with the screen brightness turned down) is pretty bad. Goes down 1% every 3-4 minutes while just browsing the net. Battery life while using mobile data is terrible. Goes down 1% every 1-2 minutes while browsing.
I bought a G510 primarily as an Android based WiFi SIP (VOIP) phone but never has a device given me so much grief in setting up VOIP. When using a SIP softphone with the stock Huawei ROM the mic is either silent (e.g. Linphone) or heavily distorted robotic static (e.g. CSipSimple). I think it may be dual mic related but it doesn't quite match the symptoms reported by others. This problem also doesn't effect regular phone calls, the voice recorder or Google voice search. A post on here somewhere by someone with the same problem led me to ShockeyCzT's modified stock ROM. His ROM does indeed fix all SIP problems but is otherwise quite buggy. Then I tried joestone's CM 10.1 ROM. The forum post mentions disabling dualmic so if my problem is dualmic related then this ROM may address it. However for some reason with this ROM I can't get my SIP registration to stick. It either unregisters as soon as I make a call (CSipSimple) or refuses to register at all (Linphone). Finally I came here to Dazzozo's CM 10.2 ROM. Despite being the youngest ROM it feels like the most stable but it has the same SIP/VOIP problems as the stock ROM. I tried adding "ro.config.dualmic=false" anyway but it made no difference and often causes the entire OS to crash and reset. So has anyone managed to get a proper SIP softphone to work on the G510 in a stable ROM (preferably this ROM)? I'm out of ideas at this point.
