Does Aurora have a stable/complete ROM for u8800? Or are you just talking about the Aurora ICS port? That's close, but I'm not sure I would call it a daily ROM at this point, not just yet.

This ROM is pretty good, I had some battery issues that I could never get past so I went back to CM7. I'd try this ROM if it's your first, it's very nice and very different from stock.
Feed my ORD... please?

It seems you have no clue about Aurora ICS, it's on v1.10, perfectly stable for daily use and has no major bugs. I'm not saying that it is better or worse than the rom discussed in this thread, just saying that you are wrong, give it a try

Was planning to play with it this coming weekend, I saw the camera fix recently. But, the sdcard mounting issues, GPS app FC's, and wifi not connecting automatically would kind of point to it not being a daily ROM for someone looking to run their first custom ROM..

Edit: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=1463 isn't "pretty much stable" lol

but you're right, it's not an alpha test ROM for sure

Do you mean, is it for devices that have been upgraded by a stock (Huawei) GB ROM to a .35 kernel?
No. This has a .32 kernel, if you have upgraded to an official GB ROM you will need to downgrade before trying this one.

it is based on 2.3.7 gingerbread miui base as opposed to 4.0 ICS base but it has a .32 froyo based kernel as opposed to the official .35 gb kernel.

Yes, it's based on android 2.3.x (2.3.7 I think) which makes it Gingerbread. Official GB ROM's normally use .35 kernels, but many of the custom ROM's use the .32 kernel - it tends to be more stable and the drivers work easier/better.

To use a .35-kernel ROM on the u8800 you must go through the official upgrade process using a stock GB ROM. Not sure why, I think because it changes the disk partition layout and maybe also the radio firmware?

So, to put on a custom ROM using an easy method, chose one that uses the same kernel version that you have now. This is a good one if you are running a .32 kernel, there is also a MIUI port for a .35 kernel. I use a .32 kernel and CyanogenMod 7, but I used this ROM quite a while and liked it.

Edit: Dammit Paul you beat me to it - that'll teach me for typing long messages!!
