[ROM] My New Racer Rom V2

52 posts in this topic

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

I think I should modify the APN to china local operator.

thank you very much again.

Any difference in performance? (Angry Birds, etc)

Maybe a bit faster, I haven't played a lot, before I have putted new ROM.

Hi,

I'm a newbie to the Android and smart Phone. I have bought DELL XDC28 which is basically a ZTE RACER (I guess ). I want to upgrade the 2.1 to 2.2 Android and i have downloaded Clockwork,FastBoot and Update.rar files and i have also downloaded the ROM Manager.

I have done the fast boot command from the command prompt for clockwork recovery image as per the instructions here

http://www.addictivetips.com/mobile/how-to...-san-francisco/

http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...rkmod-recovery/

but when i reboot the phone by pressing the power and vol+ or vol- nothing happens the DELL Logo appears and nothing happens. I guess it does not boot in the recovery mode. I also installed the ROM manager and tried boot from it but did not workout. It simply hangs on the Dell Logo.

What could be the problem ? I shall be very much thankful if you could help me out.

Thanks In Advance

Hi Rickywyatt,

Thank you for your great job on this ROM for the ZTE Racer

I have successfully installed this ROM in mine racer. It's all working fine :). At the beginning the 3g wasn't working but I manage to fix that.

My original ROM was full of operator applications crap that their main purpose was for burning 3g traffic. Now this ROM is much better its clean and fast. Another thing was the root in the original ROM I didn't manage the root to work 100%, some application that needed root permissions didn't work, now I don't have this problem.

Thanks again ;)

Hm,

yeah I tried this MoreLocale 2 from Market but with no success. Do you thin that I'm going to have more success if I put this new ROM from rickywyatt?

When tried with default ROM on ZTE Racer there was no success...

Regards!

I have the andriod and the red light on , i then click on install-recovery-windows.bat i then get the command window with OKay - but the phoen does not restart , i can not copy update.zip as i cannot acess the device .

I can only acess the device when i restart and let teh phone boot normally - so i can not get it intto recovery mode ?

Any idea's ?

Thanks for sharing your work. I want to install your Rom but I have already problems with the first step: I can not boot onto the android-only window. I removed the battery, put it again, pushed the vol+ and the powerbutton (at the same time), but the phone boots (as normal) till the simcode-window. What am I doing wrong? And do I have to connect the USB-cable before or after booting?

thanks a lot rickywyatt this rom is the best super working on my ZTE racer. I only had a problem with recovery from this post, I could not seem to install the on button and green strength plus Android and instal recovery, however, the phone does not restart and still shining green Android logo. to remove the battery and re-recovery mode is the key to the on phone and minus button and Recovery is doing great and is now restored that is now a new recovery from this post. I am interested in whether you'll soon to register your something new rom with system 2.2 and if maybe there is something similar. Thanks again

Thanks for sharing this, i've installed it successfully on my Vip Droid, and it works great, especially app2sd, now i have 500mb more space on my card. :(

Question: Is there a way to install some apps on phone memory? That would be great for some small apps that i frequently use, like task switcher, or custom launcher. Please let me know if there is a way to do this.

Great work on this!! I hope you'll port 2.2 when available for Racer.

Thanks again!

@Ricky

thanks for all your good work ...

as a result I now have a Racer fully rooted and with Clockwork 3.0.0.5 working fine.

I fancy your update rom,

but am a bit confused by it's filename having 'non3G' in it

a daft comment, as I suppose phone will still have 3G capability, but not the '3' branding ?

I have installed this successfully. LiveWallpapers work brilliant + other addons as mentioned on first page. Tho 3 Crap still exists!

Is there any app that can change the status bar color or make it transparent?

Read THIS . I downloaded equiliym's "flashable pack", went in recovery -> install zip from sd card -> choose the flashable pack you downloaded and that worked great for me. Do it at your own risk!

Hi, I recently bought a ZTE Racer on Three UK and still kind of new to this business of customised ROMs but I would like to give it ago anyway.

To be honest I'm fairly happy with the stock ROM but I've found a few nagging issues that need sorting out.

The audio stalls for a split second when flipping from portrait vs landscape and affects all audio based applications.

I cannot use the Android firewall DroidWall and a certain Wifi tethering app because iptables is missing or broken.

I was wondering does your ROM fix these 2 problems??

Also there's no Flash support, a common problem with many headsets.

I did some searching and found this page - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=6569529

It supports Android 2.1 and runs on an ARMv6 processors but when I installed it and tried the browser it won't use the plugin.

After further reading it said I need something called com.google.android.feature.GOOGLE_PLUGIN or android.webkit.permission.PLUGIN ??

I was wondering if there was some kind of dirty hack to get the plugin to work with the default browser??

And lastly I want to change the default levels for the low battery warning dialog box.

Even at 15% I can still use my handset for a good 2 hours solid so I think 5% would be more ideal.

The settings are stored inside framework-res.apk, what I want to know is if I replace framework-res.apk with my own mod and restart the handset will it accept the new settings??

cheers,

Richard S.
