Cool huawei ascend y200(u8655-1)

I've searched the web, many, many forums and I have found there isn't enough going on about this phone. All I can find is specs, and(of course) how to root.
I'm starting this thread for guys/chicks, developers, noobs etc.
here you can post custom roms specifically for the huawei u8655-1, also known as the huawei ascend y200.
I personally hope that developers will create great new roms to try out on this phone, explain customising done, eg ninjamorphing, maybe even get it added as an official device to this forum.
Thread is open to all.
Thanks in advance.

Hey guys, I found an ics-theme zip-file flashable for android 2.3.6, and decided to try it out. i downloaded it and tried to flash it using cwm. upon reboot. I can see no change, so I will try to decompile the constituent apks and use them to ninjamorph the current apk's I have. will update you if it works.

thanks to:
stericson for ninjamorph
everyone else involved(generic thanks)

This is the link to the original thread:

ICS 2.3.6 Theme For any 2.3.6 ROM (THEME)

If you have success flashing it let me know.

Hello huawei ascend y200 users. I, during my web crawling, found yet another custom rom. However, this one is built specifically for the huawei u8655-1.
Yes, I flashed it, and it worked.
It can be found here:

[ROM] [U8655-1] [GB 2.3.6] Jelly Bean OS 08/05/2013

The Pros:
-Awesome JB Interface
-Super smooth UI
-Transparent customizable status bar
-advanced settings
-extended power button menu
-comes with a few gapps

The Cons:
-It's in German
-Seems to be unstable
-keeps force closing
-seems to be lacking a keyboard.

This is where you developers come in.
If you could iron out all the aforementioned cons/bugs, This rom would be perfect.
If anyone figures anything out, let me know.

Remember to hit the Thanks button

I don't have much choice. Not until midsummer anyway (I'm 15).
Therefore I will strive to make owning and customizing this phone much easier for its owners.

I tested two other roms, other than the JB LOOK ROM by jingy5928. One, named Emotion UI, also by jingy5928, is basically the same Rom with a different launcher. It seems to be more stable though, and the keyboard actually works. On the down side, the extra settings keeps force closing.
You can find it at this link:
[ROM] [U8655-1] [GB 2.3.6] Emotion UI 1.0

The second was a modified version of the clean-based rom(by No name), moded by michelkovacic. the ui is almost similar to the two by jingy5928, but it seems to be more stable, and doesn't have a problem with either extra settings or the keyboard. It also comes with xplore as it's file explorer.
You can find it here:
[ROM][U8655-1]Modified Rom RC1 by michelkovacic 01/03/2013

One universal problem with these roms is cellular/WiFi connectivity, at least on my phone.
If anyone can find out how to fix this, that would be awesome.


If I've helped you, hit the thanks button, or at least the like button.
If you are going to use these roms, give due credit to their developers, as I have.

P.S About the first rom being only German(was actually Dutch), simply change language in the settings, i.e:
1) Go to home screen
2) Press the menu button on your phone( the one with 4 lines)
3) Select the last option. This should get you to the settings menu.
4) Scroll down till you see the icon which is an A on a notepad? Select it.
5) Select the first menu in the subsequent menu.
6) Choose your desired language.

Remeber to hit thanks.

Curse myself for not explaining this sooner.

To install any of these ROMS:
1) make sure rom is in root of SD card
2) boot into recovery
3) clear data
4) format cache
5) advanced; wipe dalvik cache (you may need to reboot into recovery after this)
6)mounts and storage; format system + data

Then you can install the rom from cwm.
