This is my port of ZTE Blade ROM - Swedish Snow - originally made by KonstaT.

More info and screenshots can be found in the official KonstaT's thread at:

[ROM][GEN2] Swedish Snow RLS7 (Android 2.3.5)

There are also addons available. Most of them should work on Skate, too - except for those replacing the kernel.

Download: http://tinyw.in/hTPg ( MIRROR1, MIRROR2 )

MD5 Checksum: 817a59dac03d63cfcf555218ee7ec954

Installation instructions:

1) Download ZIP to your SD card

2) Reboot to ClockworkMod recovery

3) (Optional) Backup your current ROM

4) Wipe data / factory reset, Wipe cache, Advanced / wipe dalvik cache

5) Install zip from SD card / choose zip from SD card, confirm

6) Reboot

ADDON: Dolby Mobile

EXPERIMENTAL: This addon is under development! It will break your bluetooth and may have additional undesired side effects. Use at your own risk!

Use Settings / Sound menu to switch Dolby Mobile on/off. Your DSP Manager will become useless since it is not compatible with Dolby Mobile addon.

You can try using Equalizer instead (can be downloaded from Play Store).

All credits go to KonstaT. The effort he put into making this ROM is incomparably greater than mine put into porting it!

No. Torch app uses display. Blade doesn't have flash led.

Ah, OK. The link to the app on the market says it controls the LED as well as an on-screen torch :)

KonstaT released new version of ROM today.

New features look to be amazing. I will wait for some time for any potential bugs to be sorted out and then

make a Skate port again.

RLS5 changelog: 6.3.2012

-completely re-wrote the ROM settings and few of the features

-added checkbox preference for long press back key kills foreground app. Delay still three times normal.

-added checkbox preference for volume key cursor controls

-added statusbar software keys. HOME, MENU and BACK softkeys with long press functions. (thanks to CyanogenMod)

-added checkbox preference for statusbar sofkeys. You need to reboot your phone for this setting to take effect.

-added framework patch to support MVNOs (mobile virtual network operators). I'm not held responsible for any roaming charges. (Inspired by leromarinvit)

-added checkbox preference for MVNO roaming. This equals ticking 'national roaming' box in CM7. You need to reboot your phone or use airplane mode for the setting to take effect.

-added swipe to clear notifications. Individual notifications can be cleared by swiping them to left or right (thanks to CyanogenMod)

-added VOLUME UP key works as shutter button in camera app. Pressing the key focuses and releasing the key takes the photo. VOLUME UP key also starts/stops recording in camcorder.

-kernel with overclocked GPU and AXI bus (thanks to wbaw for the patches)

-updated Maps and Youtube

-updated Google services framework

-removed flashlight

-tweaked TCP buffer sizes

-fixed some portuguese translations (thanks to jventura and HeartMode)

-updated hosts file

-switched to 128mb /system TPT. (thanks to Amphoras for the layout)

Have to say this is the best rom I have used to date on my OMC and I have been through most of them. No problems what so ever.

I think this is a very good rom,excellent battery,stable,and you can use the cool themes from the blade...For a daily driver you can't go wrong here.I love all the ics & ice armor stuff,but you can't beat a good old solid gingerbread rom with no problems.

Looking forward to RLS5.

RLS5 has still some issues to iron out. It looks like there will be RLS6 soon that will deal with those issues and contain additional improvements. I will wait for this one to port.

Hard to tell, really :) Everyone prefers something else. The best way is to go and try yourself and decide what suits you best.

Swedish Snow has more features than Skatie but on the other hand Skatie has update kitchen running on web.

You should collect your own cons and pros you will find while trying both roms and then decide yourself.
