Can you get Ice Cream Sandwich for the Huawei Ascend G300?

I notice it ships with Gingerbread, but can you get Ice Cream Sandwich for the Huawei Ascend G300?

Huawei said Q3 2012, but what's with the ICS on their website? Looks like it's ready to be downloaded.

Unofficially? Not yet, as far as I know. And Huawei just said 2nd half of the year...

There is a Huawei ics rom on Modaco but it's not uk one and has locked bootloader so could be stuck with it for a while.

There's also an unoffficial one based off of it but it has some limitations atm.

Basically wouldn't advise either of those right now.

On plus side a rather roughly translated huawei message on modaco suggests that JB will be on the way too.

The first link works fine. Also now posted root and bootloader unlock.
gapps supplied by xda and soon to come MoDaCo overlay that will have all the chinese apps removed and replaced with gapps. I must say ics is working well, quick and responsive

Q3 2012 is the date set by Huawei, so that could be now to september.

Can't imagine it being that long with official ICS already out in asia, depends how long vodafone delay it adding crap I guess.

Nothing is impossible when it comes to software.
