I need RGB values to convert to HSV. This is the way that colors can be determined easily.
I have made modification to the firmware, and it is working for me. Now I can easily detect orange and other colors.

I added support for uart.mode4 to EV3ColorSensor.cs:

  public RGBColor ReadRGB()
      if (uartMode != UARTMode.Mode4) Mode = ColorMode.RGB;
      byte[] rawBytes = ReadBytes(6);
      return new RGBColor(rawBytes[0], rawBytes[2], rawBytes[4]);
