I have a P736E.

 

Power and Vol+ doesn't work at my end (never did...guess it never will).

 

I always use an update.zip (or image.bin file, that has to be on a folder named image at SD's root) to get back to stock again.

 

I don't know if it helps but HERE (under "Prerequisites") you'll find the TPT I always use. Made them both and it already includes CWM recovery 6.0.3.7.

 

Flashed CM11, and Gapps, without any issue and tried it without facing any kind of troubles.

 

Hope it helps someone, somehow.

 

Cya!

Where did you get that TPT Typhus_ ?

 

Does it have 220mb of system space? This rom may fit on a 200mb system partition, but not if you want gapps too.

 

Its very strange that there seems no combination to flash a TPT on p736e outside of recovery or a rom. Btw in newer roms the system update option seems to be missing.

I've "made" it using TPT helper...

 

Yes, it does have 220MB system.

Ok, I've tried using the TPT mentioned in #101, and these are the exact steps I've used:

 

1. Booted into CWM, applied update.zip (from "Prerequisites" in the link mentioned).

2. Rebooted, tried booting up the system to check if everything is ok (didn't boot, stuck on boot screen saying optimus, don't know if that's the right case).

3. Took out the battery, turned on the phone, entered CWM, installed CM11, gapps, rebooted.

 

At partition info checked the partition sizes, again getting 200MB /system partition.

Am I doing something wrong here?

From your report you didn't do anything wrong.

 

But, now that I think of it, I'm not sure if the update.zip makes the correct partitions...I guess that only image.bin will do that.

 

I think you get stuck on Optimus logo because your system partition remained the same.

 

I think you should flash a ROM that has less than 200Mb system with update features enabled on it and use the image.bin file.

 

 

You may use PirateDroidV2 to do that.

 

Hope it works for you.

 

 

Cheers!

Use an alternate method of flashing a TPT. you can do it in fastboot and also via gingerbread rom system update as mentioned. If all else fails you can always go back to stock using the ZTE flash tool.

Sorry for late posting, I got it working, just used the PirateDroid ROM to TPT through System Update the image file :-)

 

Out of curiosity, anyone managed to get the Google Now working on P736E? With these gapps, I'm getting FC error every time I start a voice search.

I don't think its suppose to work, due to the out of date armv6 cpu.

 

You could try the workaround here, but a quick search shows a few people trying and failing to get it to work on armv6 devices.

Well another fail from me, tried to get it working but similar/same results occur.

 

Are there any news on an update? Could anyone share with me external app for wifi tethering that is working with this ROM?

Hi friends... I guess this thread has come to an end? Seems like our friend gbosh hasn't had time to continue his amazing work. Anyone know of another dev working on this?

Hey app10336 - I'm not sure if this is what you are after but you could try installing TouchPal X, that might give you a way to get emoji's.  Hope that helps.

Hey !

 

I mean this: (stock keyboard /sms application both)

First picture is this rom

Second is another phone stock kit kat rom

Blade S / Crescent don't have a lot of memory, so if I can do this without installing another keyboard and sms application.

 

I tested with swiftkey application ( I really use it ). Same issue, no build in emoji support on blade S / Crescent.

I think Gbosh is busy with other things - I think he's stopped working on this ROM, so there are probably lots of things that need further development.  I don't have any more ideas, sorry.

Ok, thanks for answer anyway. Maybe other has glue to fix this.

 

Maybe trying an other "gapps" can fix this. ;)

I have one more idea (don't know if it is a good idea, might not work) - there is an updated Google keyboard on the app store.  I know it's another app, but it might be smaller than TouchPal X.
