Well the day has come when my beloved Racer has DIED, i`m not surprised with the amount of testing and flashing its had .......but still i`m pissed

today i was in the process of porting/adjusting/testing new LeWa ROM for you all, just installed a final test version of the rom and then soon as it got past bootanimation the phone rebooted by itself which was very strange as i`d just tested a beta version of rom afew minutes earlier with no problems and i had`nt changed any system files just some apps.......so i rebooted into CWM (which worked) and wiped everything and restored a backup of #224v2....the restore completed successfully and i rebooted my phone, but same thing happened again just as bootanimation finished.......so i thought maybe the partition layout needed resetting so i fastbooted my original stock recovery to gain FTM mode and that worked fine, opened zte online tool but it would not detect my phone at all, so i trolled the forum and found some helpful things in the blade forum to tpt my phone, managed to find 3uk original files from online upgrade on the net and then backed up my Channel1.nvm and proceeded to tpt my phone with correct files at hand, it worked to reflash my phone totally with stock 3uk rom and i restored my Channel1.nvm aswell but still does the same!! reboots just after bootanimation (stock rom it gets to the desktop but after afew seconds it reboots itself)......i`m guessing some part of my phone is fried........SO NO PHONE NO MORE ROMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think this day should be a national day of mourning.....

So.... are you planning a replacement, or is it early days yet??

Update 2: well i went to argos near me (open till 8pm) and they where very good about it, they didnt ask any questions and offered me a replacement straight away BUT their where no Racers available in-store or at any other Argos in the area (4 stores) and where`nt getting any new stock in either......so they said i could send it off for repair which would take a month which i said no as i use my phone alot and need it as you guys know :lol: OR i could choose a replacement upto the value i payed for it which was £81 (51 weeks ago) i got a Samsung Galaxy, so it gives me no pleasure in saying that i wont be making/porting roms in this forum anymore :( i`ll still pop in the forum and check whats happening and keep tabs on my threads.......

Well it looks like android 4.0 is gone and there is not much chance for us to get a working ics rom.

If only i was a developer (sigh)

until vamshi or deadlink get the proper ts driver, no one will develop ics due to the cursor thing, its annoying and slows down testing

you need to get a working (not fully working) cm9 (ported from blade) rom together 1st before vamshi or deadlink can modify there kernel
