Update: It has come to our attention that inappropriate credit was given for the Huawei U81xx releases. The builds for the U8160/U8180 are actually based on original work by XDA Recognized Developer psyke83 in this thread. Similarly, work on the U8120 ultimately comes from XDA Senior Member joilaroi in this thread, and work on the U8150 comes from XDA Recognized Developer tilal6991 in this thread. Please refer to those threads for the original works.
Despite not having their own forums, there are a lot of obscure and unpopular devices with outstanding developer support. It’s generally assumed that the big name devices will get updates and AOSP, but when lesser known devic. . . READ ON »

With Android 4.2 development in full swing, devices old and new, big and small could be seeing CM10.1 or similar AOSP-derived offerings in the near future. Let’s face it, if the HTC HD2 can run Android 4.2, pretty much any modern device can. Now, there are CM10.1 ROMs available for the ASUS Transformer TF300T and the Huawei Ideos X5 U8800.
XDA Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD of Team Hacksung is doing the work for the TF300T CM10.1, while the Huawei Ideos X5 is being worked on by XDA Forum Member gleb_grid. Nightlies are available for the TF300T now, whereas the Huawei Ideos X5 has a pre-alpha that needs a lot of work.

We are always crazy about ports for various devices for one very particular reason: these extend the lifetime of otherwise unsupported devices. This was, for the most part, the foundation of our beloved site. From time to time, we find in our forums an underdog type of device that not too many people are interested in. However, it takes one little spark from a very good dev to make things happen. This is the story of the Ideos X5 (one of its variants anyways) and how XDA Recognized Developer and overall legend dzo managed to get this tab to run ICS.
The port is relatively new and yet it has gone through many revisions in a matter of 10 days, which is the kind of work that we have seen, loved, and come to expect from this de. . . READ ON »

It seems that mid range devices are here to stay. One manufacturer that has been steadily and silently growing in the mobile device industry is Huawei. They normally develop mid to low range devices and cater to people who don’t want to shell out $500 for a Samsung or a HTC device. As there have been numerous requests for this one, we decided to give the owners of the Huawei X5 U8800 a place to play. All discussions about rom, kernel, and app development for this device can be found in this area from now on. The device packs quite a punch in terms of hardware specs and also runs on Froyo (Android 2.2). So, if you were looking for a mid range device to quench your thirst for Android goodness, look no further.
