Just finished updating....and WOW!!!!

Vast improvement....EMUI 2.3 is polished, quick and very responsive (but probably used Nova)
Everything is faster ...probably due to KitKat 4.4.2.
One MAJOR issue is that Huawei change the DPI...the icons and text will be larger. This change was in response to Huawei's forum users saying text was too small.

Update: Unable to root via current RootGenius 1.8.7en, 1.9.6, KingoRoot 1.2.2, AnzhiRoot 1.5.0

Just installed and the font is too big for me. The performance is better.

Antutu Score : 23637

Can not install some of application like FIFA 14. They said it is not compatible with the device.
I had to install Google+ for second Google account but it also has compatibility issue.
But you can add second Google account on YouTube app.

I've just received the Mediapad X1, 501u firm.
To install the Kitkat 4.4.2, should I root the unit first?

Thanks in advance!

I have some apps that also show up as "incompatible with your version"...it's due to the change in LCD density value from 320 to 400. Hopefully someone finds a work around for this .

whoaw , DL speed is impressive , about ....0bps .... lol

if anyone had DL rom before and can post it on Mega , it will be great ( i need rom for 503L )

for who's tested, can you restore all googles app , by rooting/modify the xml file ?

upgrade by OTA will not work ? ( like from B002 to B006 ) ?

did the B007 will now accept 64G micro SD in ExtFAT ( fat64 ) ?
