B008 Full Flash (Public Release)
Apparently, Huawei has deemed the latest B008 version to be stable enough for public consumption and thus has released it as the final (for now) EMUI 3.0 / 400 dpi ROM for Mediapad X1 503L.
For full ROM download, kindly visit:
http://www.emui.com/nsp/geturl.php?p...08.zip&rid=902

(kindly note this is a FULL ROM, not an incremental update. Flash as per how you would normally flash a full rom; remember to backup your data prior as flashing a full rom most probably will wipe your data)

Another leaked official beta ROM from Huawei for 7D-503L.
The main feature in this ROM is EMUI 3.0, for those who are still in the dark, EMUI is the skin which Huawei applies over stock Android, think Sense for HTC, Touchwiz for Samsung. EMUI version for current ROMs is 2.3 for KK and 2.0 for JB.
This beta ROM is 4.4.2 based and uses a framework of 400DPI.

B002 Full Flash

B005 Update (this is an 80MB update, your 503L needs to be already on the B002 ROM above to be able to flash; flashing procedure as below, thanks to bthoven)
http://www.mediafire.com/download/wb...02C208B005.zip

1. Create dload folder in internal sdcard
2. Copy the whole b005 zip file to dload folder (don't unzip it)
3. Rename the b005 zip file to update.zip
4. Local update

B005 changelog (edited the translation provided by bthoven through Google translate; changelog is for the 3G version of Mediapad [501u], but I believe it is the same for the 4G 503L)
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...3&postcount=51

Newly added options:
1. Added 4G only (for 4G model), 3G only option
2. Added option to turn on the screen when a new message has been received
3. Added speed dial function to dialer interface

Important optimizations:
1. Optimizes memory allocation and management strategy
2. Optimizes the UI layout and icon adaptation
3. Fully optimized system stability, fixed rare instances of phone hanging and other problems
4. Optimizes network search time
5. Optimizes power consumption during phone standby with screen off when data is switched on
6. Fixed silent installation problem for App Store
7. Fixed delay reception of WeChat messages
8. Fixed various UI performance problems i.e. screen lagging when scrolling list of installed apps or when returning to home screen from web browser and also other instances when the phone appears unresponsive
9. Adjusted the indications layout for data services



B006 Update (this is an 60MB update, your 503L needs to be already on the B005 ROM above to be able to flash; flashing procedure as below, [similar to that of flashing B005])
http://www.mediafire.com/download/ph...02C208B006.zip

Hi Kennyadex,

1/ Could you please tell us if you manage to install Google+ in this rom version, please ?

2/ Is it possible to give us a review of this rom about network (Wifi, 3G, 4G...), what's new ? about RAM ? Problems to install some apps or not ? Google apps are pre-installed by default or not ?

Thank you in advance for your answer.

Depending on your answers, maybe, i can replace my recent new BETA rom [ROM][HUAWEI OFFICIAL BETA][7D-503L]KitKat 4.4.2 / EMUI 2.3 / 320 DPI ---> to this one [7D-503L]KitKat 4.4.2 / EMUI 3.0 / 400 DPI

I couldnt test is for too long, but from the little time i used it. It has a very wonderful UI/UX. Fast and responsive. Unfortunately most of google services were not functional. 3G and wifi was stabel was very good.

If you want to give it a try back up using the following method below

The last leaked beta for the 503L was KitKat and 320DPI, why are they now going back to 400 DPI

I'd like to know these as well I use Nova Launcher, so i'm not sure the new UI really does anything for me, unless the whole phone is faster. My biggest issues have always been App compatibility and Wifi/3G Performance.

Ok, i tested this rom [HUAWEI OFFICIAL BETA][7D-503L]KitKat 4.4.2 / EMUI 3.0 / 400 DPI :

1/ No apps compatibility for several apps like Google +, Ratp, SNCF... (yes i'm french )
2/ Network correct (sometimes, i lost the network of my carrier) but not great like [7D-503L]KitKat 4.4.2 / EMUI 2.3 / 320 DPI
3/ RAM correct like B102 or B010 but not smooth like [7D-503L]KitKat 4.4.2 / EMUI 2.3 / 320 DPI

However, with this rom, you have

- EMUI 3
- i installed easily Xposed Framework 2.5.1 without editing build.prop and I managed to open the Settings Panel without problems. Perhaps thanks to EMUI 3 ? I don't know...

Thanks for the review!, So it sounds like I will stick with the 4.4.2/320 DPI leak for now as it sounds like its better.
