nice work, and i'm guessing it's still £140+£10 top up, i'm tempted, my hero is in dire need of an upgrade but i've been really torn between high and low end phones since buying a vega to use more for surfing the web, as long as it runs 2.2 or above tethering will solve my worries on screen size. I've no doubt the Samsung S2 is a far better phone but i don't think its worth the £300 extra to do stuff I could happily do on a Vega + a OMC. Think i'll wait and see how long it takes to be unlocked before buying though as being on orange is useless to me, but the sim and £10 worth of credit will pay for itself in my old phone and the local odeon on wednesdays, might be a case of get one of these and sit it out until ICS launches with the nexus prime for a proper upgrade

"loving the atrix", but still in the Skate forum?;) I suppose you could have a phone in each hand. :)

Anil.

PS. Just to be clear, I'm taking the piss, and I hope the new job is going well.

Ha! Am personally, looking forward to see what mess did they make of this time, like with .32.9 :D

(There's plenty of gotchas in the .35 series, especially when the version bumps up over .35.9 :P)

Which store?

We can't start on any roms until there's a dump of the stock rom available to use. Hopefully unlocking is similar to the blade, maybe we could just replace phone.apk with an unlocked blade version, unless they locked it properly this time.

Somebody needs to be the first to buy one & dump it. I'm hoping it's similar enough to the blade that the roms are almost interchangeable (just copy a few phone specific files).

Try romdump first. If romdump doesn't work ... then try rooting it with kallt kaffe's modified z4root, then use adb shell, or an android terminal emulator to enter the following command


tar -cvf /mnt/sdcard/system.tar /system/

Then copy system.tar off your sdcard.

Or you could try using a gen2 zte blade version of clockworkmod.
