BlueGinger Custom ROM - ZTE Skate / Monte Carlo (Updated 23/09!)

155 posts in this topic

Hey guys this is a custom ROM for the ZTE Skate / OMC. It's based on the stock OMC build but with many mods and tweaks.

Tweaks and Mods:

  • Deodexed
  • Zip-aligned
  • Honneybee animation
  • Orange bloatware and junk removed apart from Signal Boost and DNLA streamer - Media Share
  • Update GAPPs to latest versions including Market to 3.1.3
  • New theme from scratch designed by me - combination of Sense UI, Gingerbread and Honneycomb (temporarily removed - will be back)
  • Updated SuperUser to 3.0 beta 4
  • Support for remount and Busybox included
  • Go Launcher EX instead of Stock Orange Launcher
  • ES File Explorer with support for root exploration and system modification included instead of Orange Filer
  • Link2SD included - need a properly partitioned SD card for it to work

Data wipe is not required but if you do so then please do so before flashing not after.

Changelog:

v2

Fixed lag in previous release

Increased available space

Updated apps

Removed even more unnecessary apps

Replaced ZTE FM radio app with better one

Reverted to default theme for now - will be back in next release

Improved performance tremendously - HD games should be playable

v1

Initial release

Download link:

v2 - Mediafire

v1 - Mediafire

Hope you guys like it! :)

No, new ROM, (the phones software) doesn't unlock the SIM, that will require a SIM lock code.

Thanks, will it have Power Toggles in the Notification Bar?

(sorry, at least I was the first to ask!)

Not in this version but maybe in the future.

No it wont but again it might do so in the future. I need a romdump of a factory unlocked skate though.

Eek! No corporate E-Mail, need that to sync my contacts.

Otherwise seems good, still having the black screen / proximity calling issue but that seems to be related to loading and is a fault on the stock OMC ROM.

Thanks though excellent work.

nice work my only problem is the font its nice in the menus but i like stock font for web pages.

and for the proximity censer i fear we have faulty handsets i tryed the CM7 ROM to see if it fixed it but it dose not register the sim as been there & dose not let you add APNs

i emailed about getting a refund or exchange..

Proximity sensor works for me in CM 7 so it may be a software fault - ill have a look.

Oh and about cm7 you can test the bug by not wiping data after install. That way cm7 detects the sim and apns

I've sent you a DM but you need to Super Root and install Clockworkmod first.

See the top posts at the start of this forum.

THANKS! for a very nice rom.

I really appreciate all your hard work, within a month of the OMC you have produced this and a semi ported CM7.

Now if only i can get the badword simlock removed i can start using my phone properly.

Any benchmark results for reference? Too bad my OMC is in factory for making jelly cases; otherwise I will definitely give it a try :)

I think stock ROM sits in 930ish? I didn't mark it down but the Vellamo score was 306 so maybe you can have a play with that.

Cheers!

I'm having a very little problem with GO Launcher,

When I enter a menu in an app the white text is displayed on a nearly whit background and very difficult to read. I've looked through the GoLauncher prefrences but can't find the option to change the colours in the app menu.

Is it possible to change and how do I do it?
