PREREQUISITES - ATTENTION PLEASE

a) ROM
Gingerbread 2.3.5 Stock Huawei version (B512, B521, B540, B552, B565, B572)
or any customized Gingerbread ROM (CyanogenMod, MIUI, 2.3.5, 2.3.6, 2.3.7)
or any ICS Rom (DZO Aurora, Genokolar MIUI v4);

b) Recovery
CWM Recovery 5.0.2.7
If you have the stock recovery, you will not be able to install any customized ROM. So, you have to do these steps: download the CWM Recovery 5.0.2.7 (previous link to download the file), power off your device and turn on into Pink Screen Mode (holding down VOL+, VOL- and Power button). Plug in your usb cable to your pc and wait for the automount of the new drive. Navigate to the /image folder and rename the stock "recovery.img" into "recovery.bak".
Now simply copy the CWM Recovery into the /image folder and be sure that its name is "recovery.img", otherwise you have to rename it into "recovery.img".
Unmount the periferic, remove the usb cable and extract the battery to shutdown the phone. That's all.
You can verify the new recovery installation entering in recovery mode (holding down VOL+ and Power button).


INSTALLATION PROCEDURE FOR FULL PACKAGE

0) Make sure that you have installed all prerequisites;
1) Download the zip file of the rom with your pc;
2) Shutdown your smartphone and to be really sure unplug the battery;
3) Insert your battery and power on your smartphone into recovery mode holding down VOL+ and the power button (be sure that you have the CWM 5.0.2.7);
4) Go to advanced ---> reboot recovery;
5) At the new recovery boot go to "mount and storage";
6) Mount usb storage;
7) Plug in your usb-microusb cable;
8) Copy the downloaded zip file into the external sdcard;
9) Wipe data/factory;
10) Wipe cache;
11) Wipe Dalvik Cache;
12) [OPTIONAL if you experience a huge battery drain only] Wipe Battery Stats;
13) Go to "mount and storage", then "format /system";
14) Install zip from sdcard;
15) choose zip from sdcard and select the downloaded zip file;
16) Install complete!
17) reboot system now.

Please wait about 2 minutes for the install process and be patient for the first boot.
At the first boot the default language has been set to English. This choise because the rom needs to be more international possible.
Anyway the rom is multilanguage and offers the default available languages of the stock Android base-rom.
The default keyboard is the stock Android Latin.

Thank you! I hope you try my rom, I repute it very very fast and stable.
I have tested B512, B540, B552, B565, B572, B866 (Honor porting), B872 (Honor porting), B876 (Honor porting).
I have always customed these official roms and I have to admitt that the latest B876 is the most powerfull, very stable and I am not finding bug at the moment.
I prefer to take the stock rom from the official Huawei zip and customize the content making a good working rom.
You are right, the anzhi forum is very rich of content, a lot of people upload roms daily.

Regards
