Tnx rickywyatt for Great ROM, working excellent on my ZTE Racer or like my operator ViP Serbia calls it: Vip Droid phone

Your work is very appreciated ;)

Just one question, maybe stupid :( or maybe asked before

I am interested if is possible to put Android 2.2 on ZTE Racer

I red that is 20 to 30% faster then Android 2.1 on same phone so it would be nice to have it ;)

Thank you! This is great work!! I have to try it. As I wrote earlier, my phone came with the live wallpapers activated and with all 5 screens. It seems my provider only added some apps and their logo at start up.

I'm a bit confused. Racer has a 512 mb Rom or a 256 rom? And what about ram? I see 161 mb but looking around the net it says 128. Is it a 256 MB RAM/256 MB ROM?

Also, regarding internal memory, mine shows 217 mb of internal phone storage available for use, but my provider (TMN) says that only 130 mb is available. The phone is still in its original state. Nothing has been removed (only added, :().

Hmmmm, can't seem to make it work - it says that it's OKAY before the application exits, but the phone doesn't seem to want to reboot, and if I unplug it all and reboot manually, it hasn't actually changed anything :(

Edit: Okay, I jumped ahead to the second step and it's installed ok now - the phone seems snappier! One problem - there are two 3 icons on the homescreen Favourites, and Planet 3. Everything else is perfect!

So, the rom is also the same size as the ram, right?

I don't get it why the marketing is so many times wrong...

Thanks for the info!

Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Ricky, I flashed your previous rom which is great, and I used your updated recovery. Can I simply flash this rom over the top of the last one without doing a wipe/reset?

Thanks in advance.

Hi rickywyatt, first of all let me thank you for putting your effort in improving this handset, for it has been a popular phone in Portugal.

Is your ROM like a clean android 2.1 ROM for ZTE Racer? What about the other users, are you satisfied with ricky's ROM?

Thank you in advance and happy new year! :unsure:

It works perfect - it's clean as in it's removed all customisations that the network provider had put on it. If anything's left behind after the rom's been flashed, follow the steps Ricky gave to me earlier in the thread. The phone seems snappier to me, even with the Live Wallpapers running :unsure:

Make sure you backup the phone's ROM before you flash B)

Is it just my racer or is this happening to others. In the music app all my music appears twice. Ive tried installing other music apps but they all have the same problem.

Same problem with videos.

I've had a search on the internet and found a possible cause for my music and videos appearing twice. It something to do with the "media storage" app. Some HTC phones have the same problem. Ive found a fix but when I restart the phone it happens again.

I`m stuck a bit here...

I just bought new 8gb sd card, and I partitioned it and putted update.zip on it.

What shall I do next?

Shell I do factory reset/wipe again and then apply sdcard:update.zip...... or install zip from sdc..... or something else?

Thanks in advance

EDIT Oh yes, when I flashed ROM on my old 2gb sd card it was with app2sd

EDIT EDIT Ah to hell, I went apply sdcard:update.zip.... At first everything seemed fine, but now Market apllication is missing. I guess it`s a common problem?.....

hi rickywyatt

thank you for your great work.

but my mobile cann't use 3G now. Just can use GSM even if I select WCDMA only in the setting.

I see your picture that have the 3G icon.

I am from china. when I finished the refresh and reboot , there is a SIM network unlock PIN question.

I use the calculator (http://www.nextgenserver.com/calculator/) to get the pin and fulfill the number.

Do you think this will cause the failure of WCDMA.

Anyway thanks for your great work. I can use android market by WIFI. I am happy for this.

thanks

simon
