Any hints/info I should be aware of before trying to put FusionIDEOS on this 8150 Ive been playing with ? :)

Is it easy to roll back to original "install" ?

Be first time Ive done this with an Android phone so a bit cautious.... :)

TIA

Just make sure you do a backup in recovery to your sdcard and it should be sweet.

Have you read the forum over at XDA?

Recovery is here :

I put a couple different ROMs on my U8150, but I eventually went back to the stock ROM because some had bugs which really got in the way of using it.

I realised that I lost my recovery backup, so instead I looked around for the ROM... and found it in another Geekzone thread. Basically follow the instructions and it's quite easy to get back to the original ROM.

My advice: backup on one microSD card and use another microSD if you have two of them.


Otherwise it's pretty hard (in my experience anyway) to screw it up.

Yep, just backup so you can restore. Fusion is pretty bullet proof now so that is good. If all else fails the original firmware is around and you can update back to a dead stock phone with no bootloader or any other mods.
