[ROM] Unofficial CyanogenMOD 10.1

Unofficial CyanogenMOD 10.1 for Huawei U9508 / G615.

At this stage we are including a lot from Huawei, like kernel and HAL. The aim is to rewrite part of the code to make the ROM closer to AOSP standards, including the less binaries from Huawei that we can.

Please use TWRP to install as chinese geno recovery is old and buggy so it won’t be supported.

This rom must be installed with a custom recovery and requires an unlocked bootloader.

What is working:

  • rild (proprietary) [xmm6260]
  • wifi
  • 3D acceleration (proprietary HW composer and surfaceflinger)
  • gps (proprietary) + SpeedFIX(port from galaxy Note)
  • sensors (proprietary) [akm8963, etc]
  • USB-tethering
  • lights (coded)
  • audio policy and playback (proprietary, that means the whole mediaserver from HUAWEI is included into the build)
  • camera (proprietary+skia patch)
  • mobile signal detection (coded rilclass)
  • mass storage (init.k3v2oem1.usb.rc)
  • bluetooth
  • battery stats
  • HD Video


What is NOT working:

  • FM radio (MINOR)
  • camera app forceclose but any other camera is ok (CRITICAL)
  • long time booting (MINOR)
  • LED notification needs adjustments  (MAJOR)
  • 2G signal strength (MAJOR)

  1. Its great. Some news about solving problems?

  2. Some news about 2G problem and new version? Thanks. I use it and its the best rom i have…

  3. the project is dead!!!!!!

    • the project is not dead, if you follow me for long enough you will realize that I’m the most reliable DEV around for this phone as I have been updating this blog alone for more than one year… Please show some respect

      • Cannot agree more with Mangusta. We can be very thankful for all his dedication and hard work!

      • I am really happy for your work. Its great that you work on it in free time. But i am really impatient about new version or some info about solving errors.

  4. you’re in reality a just right webmaster. The web site loading pace
    is incredible. It seems that you’re doing any unique trick.
    Furthermore, The contents are masterpiece. you have
    done a magnificent job in this topic!

  5. let they talk bro…… yes the contents are masterpiece!!!!!! Only you help us in this moment!!! what you do,build and share with us………i am very thankfull for you work!you spend a lot time in this CM/TWRP!!!!

    but i wait for update 😉 THANKS MANGUSTA86 FOR ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!

  6. Hi Mangusta,
    just a question. I’d like to increase the internal space with a microSD of 32Gb (partitioning into ext4) that I already use without partitions. I tried to install the S2E app but it isn’t compatible with our device. Have you got any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance and keep up the good work!

    • Can you be more precise? you cannot use the sd just as ext4 as for mtp you need a fat32 partition on android 4.2. If you need more space for apps (increase data partition with ext4 filesystem) that shouldn’t be a problem, just try a different app…

  7. Hi,
    First of all thank you for the good work 🙂

    Do you know a good working camera app? (all the free apps on goggle play are shit 😦 )

    And will there be an update to android 4.4?

    • well about the camera I can tell you that there are for sure some good camera app on google play, try a deeper search…
      For what concern the update, we are all waiting something from huawei… maybe it will come after summer (september – october)

  8. Mangusta. I thank you for all of your workd. I have bought by g615 back in february last year and eversince day 2 it was unlocked and as soon as i found out about your fist rom i used it – and all of its reincarnations.
    Your CM10 port is superb, actually less buggy than Kholks work and i appreciate all the hard work you, and many others have put into it.

    Fortunately my g615 died yesterday and i am no longer depending custom roms which have an extremely better quality than any stock rom.
    Of course i didnt buy another Huawei phone. As much as i liked the hardware and the quality of it – i hated the software provided by huawei.

    So.. just wanted to say thank you for the constant provision of roms which really made that phone usable and i hope you will continue your work for people unfortnate enough to stick with that phone.

    You did a great job and were the only reason i didnt ditched the phone already months ago. No other rom modder was ever that important (to me) to keep a phone alive. Might be its jiust the vast difference between the quality of your roms and the (dis)quality of Huawei’s stock roms, but still… That was a great job you did.

  9. I would recommend the Open Camera app, found at f-droid.com.
    It will take some time, especially the first time you run it, to check your camera hardware, but after that it’s a blast.
    Lots of features, and Open Source. =)

  10. Hi there, You’ve done a fantastic job. I will definitely digg it and personally recommend to my friends.
    I am confident they’ll be benefited from this site.

  11. It is really a nice and helpful piece of info. I’m satisfied that you simply shared this useful info
    with us. Please stay us up to date like this.
    Thanks for sharing.

  12. Hello … when verily write me a long speech, etc status 7 then what is the solution please?

  13. How do you install? :$

  14. Unquestionably believe that which you said.
    Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web the simplest
    thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked
    while people consider worries that they just don’t know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as
    well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

  15. Hello to all, the contents existing at this web page are in fact amazing
    for people experience, well, keep up the nice
    work fellows.
