Default [ROM][Huawei u8300] Adrenalin 2.3.5 RC1 Gingerbread 2.3.5

Adrenalin 2.3.5 UPDATE 3

DISCLAIMER:

As usual, i'm not responsible for any damage you can do to your phone using my rom...
If you want to modify the rom to improve it it's ok, just give me credits

This rom is getting me busy for a lot of time, this because I needed to learn a lot on android, I don't want donation, I just want a reply with a thanks

SCREENSHOTS



FEATURES

kernel is 2.6.29-perf, Cyanogenmod 7 Based (Gingerbread 2.3.5), overclock is supported (710 mhz max)

KNOWS BUGS:

- FM not working
- Wired headset not working during calls
- Wifi tethering is not working with built in method (settings -> wireless), but works well with the app from the market "wireless tether for root users"
- Camera is now working (thanks slk77) but buttons are not correctly skinned, minor bug
- Qrcode apps not working
- Usb thetering not working due to kernel limitation

Keyboard issues:

The main problem for keyboard is that there are different versions around of this phone with different keyboards...
In order to gain the same characters mapping as before you need to move back from the original rom the file named qwerty.kcm.bin located under system/usr/keychars in the same folder of the new rom.
The file that is now packed in the rom is the one from the italian version of u8300 that should be ok for european users. Other keyboard versions need their own file from the old eclair rom.

I'm packing some of the keyboard layout to help you with this, they are in form of zip update, flash them after the rom and remember to fix permissions!

- Portuguese and italian apostrophe patch keyboard update:

PREPARE YOUR PHONE

- Root the phone with z4root
- Install rom manager from market
- Install the custom recovery from rom manager, choose huawei ascend recovery
- Reboot into recovery and do a full backup of your current rom

INSTALL ADRENALIN ROM

n.b.: If you are coming from a previous adrenalin rom version I suggest you to wipe data and do a fresh install to avoid problems like bootloop or Force closes.

- Put the file Adrenalin.2.3.5.RC1.update3 into the root of your sd card and reboot the phone in recovery mode
- Choose wipe data/factory reset from the menu
- Choose "install zip from sdcard" and select Adrenalin.2.3.5.RC1.update3 from the menu, go on with the process
- Once done, reboot the phone and do the first boot, it should take 3/4 minutes
- Reboot the phone once again in recovery mode and again choose "install zip from sdcard", but this time select patches.zip and go on with the process
- Once done, do not reboot, but select "advanced" and then "fix permissions", it should take a minute or less
- Reboot and you are done

get rom manager, clockwork reco and finally i get 2.3 on my u8300 and it is working fine, it is really light and clean (how to install google apps such gmail, maps etc?)
some bugs at the first impressions (notice that i am a newbbie and this is the first rom i try on android, so some bugs aren't a real bug but depend from my incompetence):
cannot pull up the notification panel
cannot find screen alignment utility
can't find add new google account (only new email)
the in call screen is always in portrait mode (so it is rotated by 90 degrees)

this is a very best starting point for developing this huawei device.
i'll wait to test newer build
thank you very much for your efforts!

sorry for my english, if u need more detailed reports please contact me in pm, so we could speak italian ^^

thank you znial for your bug report

you can't pull down the notification panel because the touch is not aligned, and the main problem is that gingerbread don't use no more the tslib so there are not possibilities to align it manually trought a program. Align must be done by kernel side and this is so hard for me T_T but i'm working on it ^^

google apps need to be downloaded from market

You are welcome. I am doing some experiments with the rom.
As far as I've seen, the touchpad is working correctly in landscape mode. So it's a bit weird but it's still usable.
I like the idea of Gingerbread on this phone

OK, i solved the Problem of the Google Apps.

Download "gapps-gb-20110307-signed.zip" file to your computer and copy and paste into the SDCard root . Turn off the Phone and Boot in recovery mode "Press and Hold Green key + Volume+ and Power up all the same time" and select "Flash from SD card". Then you'll see "gapps-gb-20110307-signed.zip" and Select it. Install and reboot and done u'll see all Google apps.
