Huawei Ascend Y300 was probably the Huawei’s best selling phone before Ascend P6 and Honor 3C. As a result of Ascend Y300’s popularity, there is a prominent developer community behind it. Most of the Ascend Y300’s custom development never sees light on English language developer sites like XDA because most of the Y300’s custom developments are happening in European and Russian online communities. However if you know where to look for, you could find interesting new developments such as this Android 5.0 Lolipop custom ROM for Ascend Y300/G510.
