Unofficial CyanogenMod ROM’s are generally available for most of the Huawei phones out there. And we have covered some of those including,
But if you own an Ascend P6 you might have noticed that CyanogenMod ROM’s weren’t available for your phone until now. Official CyanogenMod most likely won’t support Ascend P6 officially in future but there are awesome developers out there who contributes their time to make CyanogenMod available unofficially for phones like Ascend P6.
XDA member “surdu_petru” is an awesome developer like that and he is the one responsible for TWRP,Clockworkmod recovery and many other ROM’s for Ascend P6. “Surdu_Petru” has released a beta build of CyanogenMod 10.1 (Android 4.2) for Ascend P6.
This ROM is still in beta and some functions doesn’t work such as
* Bluetooth A2DP
* USB mass storage
However the developer is actively working on fixing the problems and at the moment of writing this post, he has already fixed GPS issue at his end, and an update is pending with the fix. There are 2 different versions of this ROM. One requires you to run Chinese B118 firmware which comes with unlocked bootloader – http://huaweinews.com/2013/12/ascend-p6-b118-unlocked-bootloader/ and other one requires you to currently run any version of international firmware.
However the B118 based firmware seems to be getting the updates first and you might want to install that one depending on your requirements. Installing is easy if you have TWRP recovery already installed on your P6 and that’s a requirement. Read this guide to install TWRP – http://huaweinews.com/2013/11/twrp-recovery-ascend-p6/
