    Hi,
    Mathew, you have wrong information about this phone.

    U8800 and U8800PRO are similar phones, but NOT SAME!!!

    Huawei IDEOS X5 U8800 have 4 versions ( Standart U8800, U8800Pro, U8800H,U8800-51) ROMs for U8800Pro work on U8800H and U8800-51 Too, But NOT ON standart U8800!!!.

    This tutorial is for U8800PRO, NOT FOR U8800. If you flash this ROM to U8800, phone will bricked. CAUTION!

    Here is a link for JB 4.2.2 for U8800 (NOT U8800PRO): http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2145187

    UNCOMPLETE(ROM still gets updates).

    Sorry for by bad English.
