Hey guys this is a custom ROM for the ZTE Skate / OMC. It's based on the stock OMC build but with many mods and tweaks.

Tweaks and Mods:
  • Deodexed
  • Zip-aligned
  • Honneybee animation
  • Orange bloatware and junk removed apart from Signal Boost and DNLA streamer - Media Share
  • Update GAPPs to latest versions including Market to 3.1.3
  • New theme from scratch designed by me - combination of Sense UI, Gingerbread and Honneycomb (temporarily removed - will be back)
  • Updated SuperUser to 3.0 beta 4
  • Support for remount and Busybox included
  • Go Launcher EX instead of Stock Orange Launcher
  • ES File Explorer with support for root exploration and system modification included instead of Orange Filer
  • Link2SD included - need a properly partitioned SD card for it to work
Data wipe is not required but if you do so then please do so before flashing not after.

Changelog:

v2
Fixed lag in previous release
Increased available space
Updated apps
Removed even more unnecessary apps
Replaced ZTE FM radio app with better one
Reverted to default theme for now - will be back in next release
Improved performance tremendously - HD games should be playable

v1
Initial release

Download link:

v2 - Mediafire
v1 - Mediafire

Hope you guys like it! :)

No, new ROM, (the phones software) doesn't unlock the SIM, that will require a SIM lock code.

Thanks, will it have Power Toggles in the Notification Bar?
(sorry, at least I was the first to ask!)

Eek! No corporate E-Mail, need that to sync my contacts.
Otherwise seems good, still having the black screen / proximity calling issue but that seems to be related to loading and is a fault on the stock OMC ROM.
Thanks though excellent work.

nice work my only problem is the font its nice in the menus but i like stock font for web pages.

and for the proximity censer i fear we have faulty handsets i tryed the CM7 ROM to see if it fixed it but it dose not register the sim as been there & dose not let you add APNs

i emailed about getting a refund or exchange..

Proximity sensor works for me in CM 7 so it may be a software fault - ill have a look.

Oh and about cm7 you can test the bug by not wiping data after install. That way cm7 detects the sim and apns

I've sent you a DM but you need to Super Root and install Clockworkmod first.

THANKS! for a very nice rom.

I really appreciate all your hard work, within a month of the OMC you have produced this and a semi ported CM7.
Now if only i can get the badword simlock removed i can start using my phone properly.
