Description: Hear ye, hear ye! Here's a developer preview of CyanogenMod 9 for the Huawei U8185. While most things are working quite well, there are still many bugs and it's not ready to be a daily driver. This is a developer preview only!
Do not flash this unless you know how to backup your data and especially unless you know how to get back to stock. If you don't already know how to do this, you might want to familiarize yourself with the process now, while the ROM can make it to a more "daily driver" state. I don't have time to help n00bs unbrick their devices. No offense!
Wi-Fi doesn't work (someone needs to port the ath6kl driver from mainline Linux or compat-wireless)
Bluetooth doesn't work (haven't looked at it)
Audio in phone calls -- the other person can't hear you (dunno, audio_policy maybe)
Camera doesn't work
The device has low memory (256), there's not much we can do about background apps crashing
Download ROM (February 21, 2013): goo.im (md5: f4f0012cab6a36843f58dab445542023) ClockworkMod Recovery (184.108.40.206): goo.im (md5: ef6b56fb417de13952936e0c18b89014) Google Apps: goo.im (md5: 5abf39c45b84e0b01231e1a786882e1a)
Flash Flash from ClockworkMod Recovery 6.0.1.x (guide to CWM installation here). Make sure to wipe data/factory reset when coming from the Huawei stock ROM. No whining if it eats your homework. Please do a backup of the Huawei stock ROM, as there is no way to restore from Huawei UPDATE.APPs like on earlier devices (though there is a slimmed-down zip ROM here).
Dazzozo -- did a lot of work on the Huawei 8815 (G300, a very close cousin to the U8185) that we benefit from; kernel, device tree, upstream CM stuff for Qualcomm devices, and especially porting Huawei's Gingerbread RIL
