Hi. I was looking in the terminal catalogue of Movistar, and i found this mobile in his model U8800h, which is the newest Ideos X5 Pro. I´m looking for it (it´s cheap for his specs) but i encounter a problem.

There are two models of this telephone, the normal X5 (U8800, 800 mhz processor, discontinued) and the X5 Pro, which is the one that Movistar offers, and its called U8800H and mounts a 1ghz processor, 512 mb ram and 5 mpx camera. It looks great for his prize, almost like the first SGS.

Here are my questions:

-I know that U8800 and U8800H roms are not compatible, or that´s what i read, but...there are U8800H or X5 Pro roms actually? I don´t know if the Miui rom of the dev forum is for X5 or for X5 Pro.
-X5 Pro can be rooted+set a recovery?
-There are at least Gingerbread stock or tweaked GB roms for it?

Sorry if this is already asked, but i´m kinda lost with this terminal. It looks good, but i don´t want to buy an Android without any Crom for it.

Greetings!

u8800H (aka Impulse 4G for usa market) cpu msm7230@800mhz, 512mb ram,4gb rom, fm rx/tx, Broadcom wifi solution (bcm4329)
u8800Pro (aka Ideos x5 pro) cpu msm8255@1000mhz, 512mb ram,4gb rom, fm rx/tx, Broadcom wifi solution (bcm4329)

also exist something called u8800-51 but no info for this one

u8800 can be rooted via various apps and software like superoneclickroot also recovery via cwm mod and pink mode

u8800pro can be rooted only via superoneclickroot software and recovery via pink mode

i have no info about u8800h and u8800-51 rooting and recovery solution

Then i think the Movistar device is the U8800 Pro, because they offer it as a 1ghz terminal and also is shown as it in a commercial video.

There are custom roms for the Pro terminal? It´s great to hear that there is root and recovery (idk what that pink thing is, maybe i need a tutorial), but, if there is no rom, at least i can find a custom kernel for it? Like Francokernel for Optimus One.

And maybe is possible to port roms from Huawei Vision to the Ideos X5 Pro, i´m right?

Well, if with root i can make some tweaks to the stock froyo, that can be right. If the performance is better than LG Optimus One with Gingerbread i´ll choose it.

Thanks

The performance is way better than lg optimus one. And there will be ROM's for it, that's for sure. It's just too fresh now

I hope so It´s a very cheap phone for the specs it has. I´ll follow the scene and see if appear something interesting I think only the 1ghz processor makes the difference between this an O1. Thanks for the answer

Bigger screen makes difference too. And better GPU. On the processor side, even non-pro U8800 would be way better than lg optimus one, because it has ARMv7 processor, not ARMv6

Yeah, and i´m amazed it cost about the same as the Optimus One in the catalogue, ever less points (70.000 vs 80.000, and they give you more or less 70.000 as a gift, then 0€ terminal)

I´ll check it. It´s a shame that there are not CRoms yet. But i have a question, what´s that "pink mode" thing you said before? It´s a certain recovery?

It's something like fastboot mode on htc. When you load it, you can access all your phone partitions, so you can mess with files, recoveries etc.
