Even though the Ascend P6 is becoming very popular among the Huawei fans, third party development work such as custom ROM availability is very limited for it. We know that you will be able to find custom ROM’s on Chinese forums but those are built for the Chinese versions of Ascend P6.

XDA-Developers has a dedicated forum section for Ascend P6 and its the first time that the XDA-Developers has made a section for a Huawei smartphone. On there we have found a custom ROM which seems to be actively developed and feature rich, for the ever popular Ascend P6.

This custom ROM is named as “BlueAndroid” and the developer has integrated many new features to it. At the time of writing BlueAndroid is in the version 2 and its based on the latest stable Ascend P6 firmware B116 . Here are some specifications pulled from the XDA thread,

  • Stable , fast & animated
  • Rooted
  • Busybox installed
  • init.d enabled
  • some scripts to increase performance :
    • zip aligning all the apps on boot
    • tweaks database with sqlite3
    • tweaks ram memory for free memory
    • increase data speed
    • fix permissions
  • Blue windows
  • Transparent windows
  • Animated windows
  • CWM Recovery included
  • Few applications from CyanogenMod, AOKP & PAC-Man
  • Google Apps
  • Multi-language
  • BEATS AudioDSP
  • Dolby Digital Plus
  • Gloves mode
  • Notification panel

According to the user feedback this ROM seems to be the most stable and fast custom ROM out there for the international Ascend P6-U06
