[ROM] ZTE GRAND X UK STOCK & ROOTED & SIGNED V3 + OTA [UPDATED 10-27]

93 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY POSSIBLE CHANCE OF BRICKING YOUR PHONE.

FLASH THIS ROM ON YOUR OWN RISK!

This is a flashable zip i have made from my stock ICS system with which my GRAND X came.

You can use it as an backup rom if you software brick our original system.

I have made this rom for two reasons, because I have flashed original rom from zte.ru and i missed some of the features which wasn't included in it and to have a backup of my original stock rom.

Advantage of this is that I can share it with you and I will give a try to improve it with including some useful tweaks, but this is for further work.

Main advantages of the rom:

-ROOTED!

-Stock ICS lock screen (I didn't like the green long pressing dot)

-DOLBY MOBILE included (it produces better sound quality than the SoundFX)

-Update software to be up to date with any upgrades

-Facetones included

-Full Share included

-TegraZone included

-X-office included

-Removed apps like FB, G+, Twitter, TouchPal, Chrome (you can install from PLAY STORE).

Languages included:

-Cestina

-Deutsch

-English

-Francais

-Hrvatski

-Magyar

-Nederlands

-Polski

-Romana

-Slovencina

-Svenska

-Turkce

-Russian

-Serbian

Changelog:

V2- Rerooted and fixed problem with fixing root after flashing

V3:

-FIxed battery icon not showing when charging

-Changed default wallpaper after flashing, now its stock ICS vanilla

-Build.prop tweaks (touch responsiveness, scrolling, battery save, signal strenght, net speed)

Installing:

I didn't check if it will fash trough stock recovery, it is signed though

1. Reboot to CWM Recovery

2. Wipe/Factory reset

3. Choose install custom zip from sdcard and chose my rom

4. After flash complete chose to fix root. (no need to do this with V2 version)

IF DOLBY MOBILE NOT WORKING THEN TURN OFF YOUR PHONE AND AFTER A SECS TURN IT ON AGAIN.

THIS ROM DOES NOT HAVE RECOVERY INCLUDED

BUGS:

I have noticed only that in About Phone there is no information about Baseband available, dont know if its a bad sign, or if its nothing to worry about, but I have to mention it here. But every things works fine, calls, data etc.

DOWNLOAD:

Click here (fixed root)

V2 (no need to fix root after flashing) WIPE BEFORE FLASHING, DON'T INSTALL OVER THE VERSION ABOVE

V3 IF FLASHING OVER PREVIOUS VERSION THEN WIPE CACHE AND DALVIK AFTER FLASHING THIS ROM

OTA UPDATE:

FLASH ON YOUR OWN RISK

This is an OTA update which was released in Serbia yesterday. Thanks to meanhornet for providing the zip.

I modified the updater script and disabled the checking, now its flashable through cwm recovery.

1. First go to super user app and in the information tab choose the check box next to OTA survive or something like that, mine is polish so dont know how it would be...

2. Download this and put to sd card

3. Reboot to cwm recovery and choose to install this zip.

4. After complete while rebooting choose to prevent recovery install and root fix.

5. After your phone starts go to super user app and uncheck the ota option and chceck once unroot temp option, your phone will unroot, and then check it again and it would be rooted again:)

---------------------------------

TWEAKED VERSION:

ONLY FOR ADVANCED USERS, PHONE MAY BE UNSTABLE, FOR TESTING ONLY, YOU CAN DELETE SCRIPTS AND FIND WHICH ARE THE BEST WITH OUR PHONE.

Tweaks are located in /system/etc/init.d

Dont know if tweaks applied successful but uploading so you can check.

Credits for tweaks goes here to st@matis and all those who created this tweaks.

Download: Install this version with full wipe

Click here

V2 with fixed root Install this version with full wipe (updated, added script loader, scripts are loading after boot, give them a little time:))

Did you flashed it with CWM recovery?

It should ask after installation to FIX root, you should click Yes and you should be rooted

Could you confirm that you have working root after rerooting? I cant manage to implement it in rom and even after rerooting it seems not working.

Probably I will remove it completly from rom so there would be no problems to root it with the tool from other post.

edit: created prerooted system, testing now...

edit: works, first post updated

Try to make a deodexed rom based on Cyanogenmod 9, what would be nice to have stok ICS with CM tweaks. :)

Or to contact a CM Developer to help Grand X users taste CM9 or even CM10 goodies. Of corse donation is from our side. :)

Sound settings broken in V3 I think. It keeps force closing, and Global time app is not working properlly.

Edit: Sorry, sound settings are working now, my bad.
