I have imported a Huawei Mediapad Honor X1 from China. I have managed to set it to English and installed all the Google apps i need (or think i need because every time i want to use something specific i learn that some hidden Google app is needed to do the trick).

Because i do not want to reset everything to English when i reset to factory default i hoped i could find a custom rom with English as it's standard language and the playstore installed etc.
I did some hefty reading in this forum to find several things.
A) there are custom ROMs but these are work in progress;
B) there are official ROMs;
C) After i update from the stock image the DPI will change so some apps will not work and the UI will look horrible.

So based on these findings (if they are correct) i have some further questions.
1) Are there 'finished' custom ROMs that i could use?
2) Are there official custom ROMs that have English as their default language, have playstore installed and have the original DPI
3) Currently i have Build number 7D-503LV100R001C233B002 and kernel version 3.0.8-01316-gb959b08. Is there a reason to upgrade from this version? From what version will the DPI change
4) I notice that it looks like the GPS is lacking connection time (i noticed my weather app doesn't change location when i am in another city). An app like GPS tester shows that my GPS does work. So i think it has something to do with automatically checking for changes.
Does anybody knows if this is a known problem?

You could try updating to B006 or B007, which don't mess with the DPI and are still 4.2.2. I don't recall which one made the DPI change but you can read acuratslan's threads/;posts.

Root it and install Xposed framework to suit your taste.
