I post here my experience while building this rom. I hope that some informations will help people to build the rom, but in the end my final rom doesn't work (the phone keeps rebooting in clockmodwork)
First I describe you my building environment :
I'm using Debian Sid 32 bits for my day to day work, but for my first try compiling cyanogenmod, I wanted to follow as close as possible the tuto so I created a ubuntu 10.10 64bits chroot.
You can do this with theses commands under any linux distributions (You just need to have deboostrap installed) with a 64bits linux kernel (so you can do this on a 32bits user space system with a 64bit kernel).
All the commands are done in root
# mkdir ubuntu
# debootstrap --arch=amd64 --variant=buildd --verbose maverick ubuntu
# mount procfs -t proc ubuntu/proc/
# mount sysfs -t sysfs ubuntu/sys/
# mount -o bind /dev ubuntu/dev/
# mount -o bind /dev/pts/ ubuntu/dev/pts/
# chroot ubuntu
Then, I followed the instructions of the tutorial, but I just want to add that you must add the partner repository BEFORE installing the packages to have sun-java6 installed.
Everything worked except for the extract-file part.
I had the same problem as Pierg75 and dannejo (I use JJ9 which must miss some files), so I used unzip-file.sh to extract the file from some zipped rom. (BTW the script has some typo problem, I give you a corrected one on my ftp).
I tried to extract the file from differents roms (cyanogen_blade-ota-cm7-beta2.zip, r0.2_update_de-crossed_blade_signed.zip, flb-froyo-blade-r8a.zip and Japanese_Jellyfish_RLS9.zip) but none of them had all the required files...
So I've done a mix of all of them using this priority: cyanogen_blade-ota-cm7-beta2.zip > r0.2_update_de-crossed_blade_signed.zip > flb-froyo-blade-r8a.zip > Japanese_Jellyfish_RLS9.zip.
I also give you the resulted directory containing all the proprietary files on my ftp.
And then I successfully compiled the rom (which is also on the ftp), then flashed it on my phone (I formated /boot /system /data and /cache), but it doesn't work.
The phone stay 1 minute on the ZTE blade splash screen and then reboot on clockworkmod recovery..
Here are all the files I was speaking about: http://paulgrandperr...ree.fr/android/
Do you have any ideas why the rom is not booting?
And btw thanks to everyone involved in custom rom development for the zte!
