There was a sort of official B526 release last Friday (17-02-2012), but on the official Huawei page it still says beta. Someone on XDA referred to it as also "Informal Shipping Version".
The official version is supposed to be coming out this coming Friday (24-02-2012). No word that I've seen yet on what that will actually fix (or break).
Ok thanks. I need to pay closer attention to what's going on then. Cheers.
