About RELEASE

Jebus Christ!! not another Froyo ROM!!! Yes I'm afraid so...

This ROM is based on the ZTE Blade-X880, V2.2.0B01 ROM shipped the current device, it is a slightly older build than the Softbank device, but has had considerably LESS customisation, it also seems to have support for a lot more European Languages.

Features
  • Based on the P729J_2GW900V2.2.0B01 ROM
  • Replaced Kernel with a 2.6.32.9 built from Source.
  • Removed most test Apps, programs & data left over during vendor 'testing/development'.
  • Removed some ZTE applications.
  • Removed some Live Wallpapers.
  • Removed Google Pinyin IME Keyboard.
  • Reverted to standard Android boot animation.
  • Reverted to standard Android wall papers.
  • Reverted to standard Android Browser application.
  • Fixed default homescreen layout.
  • Added Google Talk.
  • Added Google Voice.
  • Added Google Deskclock.
  • Added Google Car Home.
  • Updated Google Maps and Street View.
  • Updated Google Market Application.

Hard to keep up!

Two questions for now

-- how 'fat' is it? (What partition size does it need?)
BTW, there's a spare square bracket ahead of 'Compatibility' ...

-- any chance of your finding the (Vanilla Froyo) Voice Dialler for it? (So I can see how it takes to my two not-quite-identical headsets ...)

System is 139.9M

I found some stuff I forgot to get rid of... the XT9 databases are still in there, its taking up ~16M.... I'll dump that when I get to 0.2


Is the voice dialler not on the market place?

Not with a Blade fingerprint!

Whereas Maps & Street View are to be found there ...
Having it slot straight into a 128mb partition would be nice!

And ummm, I admit that I haven't figured out how to get a Google Voice account yet. Officially (at least) that is US-only, so not of very general usefulness ... AND its in Market ...


Presumably the Kernel is swapped because the "X" is built on the same addressing as the V880/003z, and the original is a non-starter?

delete the following:
/system/usr/xt9
/system/lib/libjni_xt9input.so
/system/lib/libtouchpal.so

and your left with 121.7M used

Tho you wont be able to install the xt9/touchpal keyboards..

Can libjni_pinyinime.so be removed as you have removed Google Pinyin IME Keyboard?

Apologies for being off topic, but I used a US Skype in number in conjunction with rdp'ing into a family member in the US's pc to activate Google Voice, maybe a proxy will let you do the same if you don't have family or friends in America.

$15 for the skype in number for three months for free outgoing calls through gmail to the US and no long distance for people in the US reaching me here was a good deal. Now I'm just trying to get some combination of sipdriod, Voice, IPKall/sipgate and PBXes to "reliably" receive and make transatlantic calls using only data (possibly a cent or two outgoing) on my SF.

On topic:

As a very happy longtime user of de-softened, does this release sound the death knell for that particular firmware?

Thanks for all your work Sebastian.

Interesting. Thanks, Seb. Is this a Japanese rom as well, because I see Japanese font built in?

EDIT: does indeed look like the "perfect" rom, does everything JJ does but seems the dialer issue is gone!! only problem so far is the apn list, i.e., no data connection on UK3 will try replacing and report back
