Been busy and inactive on this for a while now and I can't say if i'll get back to it, but it was a kick start. People like the Ideos Dev Team have pushed on and kept CyanogenMod on the device alive.

Lightbulb notes
Beta | Kicks Ass
- Kernel not using the default stock cmdline, so make changes accordingly.
- Now its USB tethering thats currently not working.

Do thank, if you will.

- A reminder that /cust is now irrelevant.
- Credits to stevenmirabito helping spot a number of issues.

- If your system decides to crash, fails to boot, or becomes non responsive, then you must be doing something wrong.
- The market is unlocked, but will not show apps that the phone cannot support, like Google Goggles, Wife Trader or something of the sort.

- Report all issues @ github.
- Default music app's now-playing layout looks best on fullscreen (change via settings).

- Keep away from Dev Tools and feel free to explore new themes and endless possibilities because your device is now awesome!

Setup
:: BACKUP your current system (Nandroid?)

You'll need format yourself, the boot, system, data & cache partitions before installing the zip.
[ClockworkMod Guide] In ClockworkMod, select 'mounts and storage' and format:
  • boot
  • system
  • data
  • cache

Misc
(Applies only to release applications) Help spot irregular/uneven user interface layouts (e.g. under/oversize buttons, text, images etc) and report them as 'issues' (see above)

Workarounds
When you make or receive a call, and the earpiece decides to act like its muted, press one of the volume keys to get it working again.

Known Issues
Audio (hiccups here and there)

Talking A few things....

Does this mean that the /cust partition will be removed, or does this mean that it's just not used by the ROM? Hopefully it's option #2, simply because it's a pain in the neck to restore (you need to restore the entire phone with UPDATE.APP from Huawei - I speak from experience ).

2 things here:
  • Is it possible to make the vibrate icon white to contrast with the black notification bar? It's not completely necessary, but it would be nice aesthetics.
  • I noticed that you are using the default Android keyboard. If you would like, I can send you a working version of the HTC IME keyboard or QVGA Swype (the version of Swype that was factory-installed) to include.

Again, thanks for all your hard work on this, I can't wait for Alpha One!

About the /cust partition, yea it is a pain in the neck to restore. Its disabled just until enough info (and feedback) on its purpose in the ROM is gathered. So until then who knows...

About the themeing, CyanogenMod has a set of User Interface settings that you can set and change; for example the status bar color, or the date/time text color on the fly. So your good to go there

The /cust partition is a special carrier-locked portion of the OS that holds protected apps (it has higher protection than apps in the /system/apps/ directory) and the carrier's customizations (boot animation, wallpapers, ringtones, etc.). Some ROMs actually use that partition to hold the Android Framework files, but it's main usefulness is that it usually sticks around between ROM flashings, so for instance your boot animation and any apps, wallpapers, and ringtones you put in there will magically re-appear. Hope that clears that up!

So that means you can set that icon to white? That's what I'm concerned about, I would like to keep the black notifications bar.

Sounding awesome! I've got one of these and it's fantastic for the price I paid. For testing GPS, I find the GPS in the phone isn't brilliant but I can get it to find a lock after a while. Recommend using GPS Status to see if it picks up any satellites.
