    Hi @TheCactusman,

    It's not that hard to install....??  Sure, I had a couple of issues when I first tried to install it, but I believe my problems were due to not having the correct size system partition.... Once re-partitioned it to how it was requested, and not what I preferred (as in previous other roms), all seems to be ok since...

    Take it you have the correct partition and recovery installed first....? As in the original post?

    Hi dandreye,

    This is just a brief answer, as currently at work... But what other Recovery modes do you really need? Don't you only need the main one for flashing Roms or Recoveries...??  Which if you already have a Eco build of CM7, means you have CWM on ya phone already.... and not left in stock mode. Which is a blessing for starters.

    I think it's best for you, to update your recovery as it seems OLD being on CM7. Look to upgrade your Recovery, by using the latest that comes with KitKat (by ZeeLog). Then that way you can flash all Roms, beit CM7 based, or CM11....

    To get into Recovery, reboot phone and just hold the Volume Down button on reboot until you've entered Recovery.
     
    Thanks, Lister

    Hi @Patrik.KT,

    Is that likely to happen?? Do Huawei have to release their source after a certain amount of time...? Or is this, fingers crossed & wishful thinking...?? Would be ace if they did!!! :)

    - similar thing to the Tesco's Hudl Tablet... awesome little device, very cheap... However, lacked any development!! :( Whether thats because Tesco (or the official OEM) never release the source, I don't know...

    Does it take a long time to build / compile roms...? I think good roms, that everyone is used too, are: CyanogenMod, OmniRom, PACMan and DirtyUnicorn... / but guess just depends how much effort and time it takes. (Have no idea the efforts it takes to sync / compile roms... If too much, then prolly not worth to build some of the more fancier ones).

    Is the WiFi only broken, because lack of Kernel Source, and thats holding the rest back....? Would be awesome to see Lollipop on it, even if Huawei never bring it to us, and without their silly EmotionUI interface....

    I've seen a video on YouTube about rooting this device, looked straight forward enough. Is it easy to root, and then install custom recovery? And how easy is it to restore it back to fully factory without root afterwards?

    Not sure my brother would try it, if there is no full restore option...

    But great to hear we have at least one active developer / maintainer for this device....  THANK YOU!! :)

    Cheers, Lister

    Hi Guys,

    This is great news, my brother got one of these phones for Christmas.... Thanks to me!! ;-) lol.... As it was only £29.99 at the time.

    It's a pity there isn't much dev support on these phones, given their price mark is around £50 at best... But its encouraging to see this happening here, keep the work up guys....

    ... and is there any more news/development happening on it as we speak...??

    cheers, Lister

    Hi ZeeLog,

    Long time no speak, glad to see ya alive and well... Hope ya had a great Christmas & New Year !! :) 

    Dude, don't take this the wrong way... But I could give you a great big "Bro-Hug" man....  :P  This is one heck of an update dude...  Not only is it nice to see a new Rom update, always welcomed... ;) :D But ya also bring a solution to an age old issue I've had for yonks... A modified S2E that supports newer Android than 4.1.2 (not tried it yet, need to install rom first). But will this S2E work with other devices running new Android OS's too??

    Cheers, Lister

    Hi bble,

    Yeah I had that (long time ago, about 3x years ago now)... Where the camera failed to open / initialize, no matter what rom...  Unfortunately (and luckily for me, was still under warranty) I had to send mine back to get a new handset sent out...

    I think if you search the forums, I believe there has been similar posts to this, maybe a build issue with poor camera's....?  

    I too had upgraded to Gen2 via TPT, and messed around with all the ROMs... Although don't really use the Blade now as main phone, more for messing about rom wise... So don't come across these issues much....

    Cheers, Lister

    For the love of god Nizulko,

    ... what is this? Like the 4th or 5th time, you keep asking the same question....??

    As you still show a lack of respect for the original developer, and ya is in such great demand of this update.... We're all still waiting for YOU take over from Zeelog and compile us the latest rom...   / No????

    Man alive..... :(

    Hi All,

    Yeah, basically what he ^ said....

    The ZTE Blade came out near end of 2010, and was only supported up to the "initial" rom it shipped with... ie: Android 2.1 (Eclair).

    The fact we've had, FroYo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, IceCream Sandwich, JellyBean and KitKat.... we should be grateful for those, and without our Dev's.... We wouldn't have, which the way SOME PEOPLE ON THESE BOARD CARRY ON, we won't even have our last remaining known Dev....

    We can't expect this phone to keep going on, and on and on... Heck, it only has 512Mb of storage space to store the OS, which mainly around 80-90Mb mark... I dare say even Lollipop is way above that by now...

    The noobs (and we were all one, at one point) just need to calm the f__k down, and just wait... Like we all used to in the past, if he wants to carry on developing for us, he'll let us know when "HE IS READY" and not be told, when we want a new rom... Thats how its always worked...
     
    Cheers, Lister

    I refer to post  #1405 as earlier mentioned in this thread, everyone in this forum is still waiting for YOU to update this rom???
    If it matters that much, why don't you take over from ZeeLog?

    This phone is over 5 years old, it's hardly going to be the number one developed platform now, when there are many other newer ones out there... We should be grateful we still have ONE developer left. However constant moans and complaints will drive him away soon.... (if not already). Please lets be a bit more respectful, and appreciate all the work his HAS DONE, and no doubt will continue to do... He works on his own, and releases when he feels like it... (Unless you know otherwise???? by keep saying the rom is dead, perhaps you speak to him???).

    If the rom _IS_ dead, I'm sure (like all other Devs) is that he'd come on here and say he is no longer working on it.... As he hasn't done this yet, lets assume he is still working on it, and we'll hear when he is ready....

    Sorry to be so negative, just find myself having to repeat myself over and over and over again.... :(

    Thanks, Lister

  10. Lister Of Smeg added a post in a topic I found the Devs who CAN put KitKat on the Hudl !!!   

    Good device (minus the camera), let down by support.
     
    We gotta hope someone can help, support us on this... as it's clear Tesco's don't care about us anymore... :(

    Hi Lucas Dracul,

    No..... Because, unfortunately I've not been working on it, or ever likely too... (I wished I knew that sh*t, but I'm afraid I'm not that smart...)

    My post earlier on in this thread, was a mere joke... Bit of light humour to those in the know (who could see from the pic) and to take some of the preasure / attention away from ZeeLog, by all those who were badgering him for an UNNEEDED update...

    I'm sure if ZeeLog has something to offer, we'd be the first to know... We don't need to tell him, how to do his work... If we do, we run the risk of losing our ONLY developer for the Blade now...

    So apologies, it was a joke... (which I think most of the regulars understood / got, it was just aimed at a couple of people who kept BEGGING him)....

    Time will tell in November, if our Blade is lucky again this time around... Although I'd imagine the image would be so much bigger now, that our Blades wont even be able to make it fit, let alone run on... But if anyone knows, it's ZeeLog...   Lets respect him, not scare him....

    Cheers, Lister
