    Hey all,

    If you don't pay attention to XDA Developers, here's some good (and bad) news for us Impulse 4G owners:

    Huawei has released a beta of their 2.3.5 rom!
    ~Updated~ 【U8800】 2.3 Official Update 【Beta1 V2】 - xda-developers

    Now, it's intended ONLY for the u8800 (not us u8800-51 owners), but I took it upon myself to see if it worked or not. After following the instructions in the post, I turned it on and TADA! It had legit Gingerbread on it, with a pretty interface and whatnot.

    Stuff that worked:
    Calls
    Texting
    All buttons
    Camera
    Proximity Sensor
    GPS

    BUT...there's a problem. Actually...a few. Here's a small list of things that DO NOT WORK with the 2.3.5 update:
    Data (2G, 3G, HSPA+)
    WiFi
    Bluetooth (didn't test)
    Accelerometer

    I have been trying all sorts of things to make Data work, but I'm just not skilled enough yet. Currently, I've tried downgrading back to 2.2, but there's a bootloop on the AT&T screen. Might end up taking it to the store and saying it started doing that by itself or something.

    In conclusion; it's here. Its buggy as hell. And as far as I know, its irreversible. Huawei DID say that they were releasing a better version on Dec. 30th, but which devices that will be for remains to be seen. Until then, if you feel the need to try it, go for it. I'll update this post as soon as I know for sure if I can downgrade back to FroYo.

    UPDATE: After hours of trying and modifying, I couldn't get it to downgrade, and the store didn't have any more in stock, so I shelled out the $100 for the Atrix 2. If I can get ahold of one again, I'll go to town on it and see what I can do to mod it.

    I tried to update my Huwaei u8800-51 US and it had no at&t network nor wifi or data after i did. I found a 2.2.2 u8800pro that I used to flash it back and the screen after the reset said
    Reboot
    update from sd card
    wipe cache
    touchscreen firmware update
    with a bunch of lines of error codes below I used the volume button to go down the list andd select each one and reboot after each time then it just unbricked and now it says it is u8800pro but i can call and get on wifi. the link to the dload is (http_://www_.mediafire._com/?kmh4qbd3v7dslc5) and now i am working to get it back to the way it looked before I bricked it but IT IS WORKING!! hope this helps:) take out the underscores though
