    Playfulgod has ported a version of CM7 for the M835, and a modded stock rom. We're waiting on the repackage of the newest release right now since many people have had problems getting it installed but the final product should be done soon (hopefully) :)

    Anyway it's the only actual rom available for the M835...there's not much of a market for them since it's a metro-only phone and not too popular :(

    Here's the thread:

    Should add, be careful when installing these ROMs, there will be bugs and sorts as its not quite done.

    This phone was set for failure when Huawei put crappy hardware in it.

    did you use the clockwork recovery step one wipe data/factory after that wipe cache partition, wipe Dalvik cache then format boot system data and cache then install from sd/card worked for me every time and i have flashed Icarus on my M835 but i don't recommend using it thus the resolution is to big on it.

    Try not to use roms made for other phones, causes too many
    problems, like the resolution.

    That's a good point there, while updates may be late on being posted, visit the developer's websites to check on progress, if you need a question answered, don't be afraid to PM them.

    You can edit the build.prop and change the LED resolution, it doesn't ALWAYS work, but it's worked over the years for me

    I am currently working on a custom rom. I need to research on a couple things and run some tests, but hopefully I will have it up and shared by this tuesday or wednesday. I'm going to devote all my time away from work to complete it. I am working to achieve 2.3 effect, but compatible for 2.2. This will not be a frankenport. If anyone has recommendations for an initial release, please comment or pm me. I have several phones to work with, so resources aren't an issue so much. I want to keep it lightweight as possible, so I want to stick with just one theme and load it with dev tools. Theme suggestion anyone? =o

    I want to add.. This method works on this port. However, if you overshoot, it is hell to try to fix using the phone itself. Have everything backed up on the computer! =P
