About RELEASE

This ROM is based on the Bouygues Telecom V1.0.0B11 ROM that was originally shipped with the device, all the Bouygues Telecom Branding has been removed, and any applications modified by Bouygues Telecom have been replaced with the AOSP versions. The aim is to revert the device to as close to AOSP as possible.

Features
  • Based on the BY_P729CV1.0.0B11 ROM
  • Removed all Bouygues Telecom Branding.
  • Removed test Apps, programs & data left over during vendor 'testing/development'.
  • Removed ZTE applications (lite version).
  • Removed Live Wallpapers (lite version).
  • Removed CooTek TouchPal Keyboard (lite version).
  • Reverted to standard Android boot animation.
  • Reverted to standard Android wall papers.
  • Reverted to standard Android Browser application.
  • Fixed default homescreen layout.
  • Updated Google Maps and Street View.
  • Updated Google Market Application.
  • Added Car Dock Application.
  • Added Google Voice
Changelog

Please see 2 posts below this one for the changes in each release.

Downloads

update.zip formatThese are update.zip files to be used with a recovery boot partition, as its impossible to sign for the standard recovery, you will need to have a custom recovery installed, for example the ClockworkMod recovery.

Installation

Install this ROM using ClockworkMod Recovery:
  • Download the update zip above and copy to your SD card.
  • Restart your device in recovery mode (turn on your device with 'Volume Down' held).
  • Use the recovery menu to apply the update file.
Which version for me

This ROM now comes in a Lite and Fat version, the Fat version has retained the LiveWallpapers, CooTek TouchPal keyboard, and ZTE Apps (Alarm Clock, Filer, FM Radio, Notepad, TaskManager).

Upgrading

No wipe is required to use this ROM, however it is recommended to wipe the data/factory & cache partitions to prevent any potential issues if you have been using a different custom ROM previously.

Reverting to stock

A stock ROM image can be found here this topic.

Known Issues
  • ISSUE: Titanium backup warns the device is not rooted.
    ANALYSIS: Titanium backup requires ChainsDD's superuser application to be installed, See ISSUE #2
    WORKAROUND: Use the "Backup and restore" function in ClockworkMod Recovery main menu.
  • ISSUE: ChainsDD's Superuser warns the SU binary is out of date and fails to update it.
    ANALYSIS: r6 of this rom ROM is shipped with a stock version of SU, the application requires its own version.
    WORKAROUND1: remove the su binary /system/xbin and then re-run SuperUser application.
    WORKAROUND2: download the su update.zip and apply it using ClockworkMod.
Future development

None.

Seb, I understand that there are some (minor?) changes (newer revisions) in the Bouygues' underpinnings, as compared to Orange's r1.

1/ Do you have any sign of any functional changes/improvements?
2/ Where should folk look (or not look) for different behaviour (or things that might have been fixed)? Where should testers' attention be concentrated?

Yes, I was hoping that Seb would group his comments here to the benefit of those with specific problems (like some routers that the standard SF doesn't get on with) and hopefully to prevent some of those who will inevitably claim it has fixed notification leds, etc, which Seb knows it hasn't!

Im always loath to join in the 'it works' debate, since I'm using the thing in a country it was not designed to work in, I have problems with the Market Place based on IP address for instance.

However, I cant say I noticed that much difference, apart from the Wifi (initially) actually working, more progress than I got with the OUK ROM

Wasn't expecting claims of fixes. (You seem way too modest for that!)

More of where people should look for possible changes.
Some wifi software has been revised (compared to the Orange r1), so it would seem good to give folks a 'heads up' and gather specific experience in that area.
Frankly, I don't know where else people should (or should not) be looking.

The Market thing raises another possibility. Is there a potential for problems in the UK if using French, Japanese, or whatever firmware? (I note that users of the prototype Chinese 2.2 OS seem to have ongoing difficulty with Market.) Is this something to be concerned about, or is it purely IP and MAC related?


Added -- Personally, I'm eagerly looking forward to the Fat version!

I just downloaded the lite version of r6 and my anti-virus program (Enterprise version of Kaspersky) has caught a virus.
Don't know if this may be one of those 'false positives' but you may want to check.
The checksum was fine.
Below is Kaspersky output:

ok, thanks guys. Wasn't really worried about it cause i've seen these sort of false positive before on various roms for various makes. Thanks for checking. Just wanted to give people a 'heads-up' up just in case. :rolleyes:

^^ This is why I won't go with Seb's ROM. Maybe I was being an idiot when I tried the de-O ROM yesterday, but even installing the Superuser app & binary yielded no effect (same no-go with Titanium Backup), and I couldn't grab Universal Androot from the market. I know Seb's rom suits a different purpose, so no complaints, but if you're after proper root (and not just a soft-root) I would go for the MCR.

Seb-bro, sorry if I'm naive to the subtleties and all, but aren't you interested in distributing a 'proper' rooted ROM (whatever that means :rolleyes: ) ?

I'm not sure where your getting the idea its not rootable from...

I just re-flashed my device with v6-lite, ran adb shell, and typed 'su'... and hey.. I'm root...

and from the command line

$ adb remount
remount succeeded

no problems there..

No-one has ever really complained about this before... if you can give me more details I'll look into it

Didn't think I was complaining! I didn't explore all of the possibilities I admit, and based much on Titanium Backup not working. Much apologies for any offence caused. I'm sure I'll give it another try sometime soon before eating my words...
