You could try a kernel that is based on the latest source code that ZTE released.

Try burstlam's kernel. It's not undervolted, but should have rest of the features that custom kernels usually have.
http://android.modac...sed-custom-rom/


This kernel appers a little slower than the stock, at least on my day to day use. Overclock is enable and that`s good for games and stuff...

Do you know any Undervolted kernels I could test? I wish to extend my battery life and I guess undervolted kernels are good for that.

Thanks for the help...

I saw you added 2-way-call-recording, which is a feature I absolutely love! My stock rom supported this using allCallRecorder from the market, but ever since then (mile high and also this rom) it no longer functions. Do I need a different app for that or a setting I need to change somewhere?

Absolutely love the roms aside from that one thing, really stable. I did have one issue with my phone not connecting to the Vodafone network to get network updates; my calls were dropped. That is why I updated from mile high; hoping this fixes it being a new kernel and all. If not I might try the stock kernel patch again to see if that helps. Else I am back on my HTC Touch Pro (saddest face; first world problems!)

It should be some what faster than the stock kernel (and maybe a little slower than the custom kernel that comes as default with this ROM). Might worth checking your CPU settings (try SmartAssV2 governor). It's still very early version of the new source based kernels, but it has some harware support that this one doesn't.

There are still some wifi issues with the kernels based on the new source code. I'm still not sure which I'm going to put as default into the next release (if/when there is going to be one ;)). Either way I'm going to provide the other as an optional add-on and these kernels are going to have undervolting and GPU/AXI bus overclocking and all the other current goodies. :)

2-way-call-recording should work with skvalex CallRecoder, but I've heard that the latest version from the market doesn't work. Some have also said that you can record calls just by using the ZTE dialer. I haven't tested this, so I'm not absolutely sure.

That's sounds like heaven Posted Image

I'm on burstlams kernel and yes, WiFi is slower (G mode is missing/doesn't connect, only B works). He already fixed it for CM7, but he didn't made another one for stock ROMs. Tried to send him a message about this, but no answer...

You could use the wifi driver (everything in /system/wifi) from that CM7 kernel package with your current burstlam kernel. That should fix the g-mode thing but the connection speed is still low.

Downloaded his latest build from here: Link
All files are already the same in my system/wifi folder. Should I use the files from the rollback patch he made?

That burstlam's CM7 build definitely has different wifi files than his kernel package here. You should have device.bin, eeprom.bin and eeprom.data (and rest of the new wifi files) in your /system/wifi. Tom G pulled those files from somewhere and they are already merged into CM7.

Rollback package includes the old wifi driver and it won't work the new source based kernels.

Now I'm confused. On the left is burstlams CM7 ROM, on the right are the files from my phone under system/wifi:

No device.bin, eeprom.bin or eeprom.data. I've installed this zip package:
2012Feb23-Blade-2gvmgen2-TS-CAM-Patch2.zip

I don't know what is in the other zip (2012Feb23-Blade-CM7gen2-TS-CAM-Patch2.zip), hotfile wants me to wait 15 minutes.

Edit: same files in that zip.
Will try to copy those 3 files to my phone and see what happens after reboot.

Edit: nothing special happened.

My wifi works fine on burstlam`s kernel. This is not an issue for me. I still feel this kernel is somehow slower than the stock.

KonstaT, is there something I can do to improve performance considering I have a 256Mb phone?

Thanks...

KonstaT sorry to trouble you again, I did as you suggested and just deleted 04dtapp from init.d didn't delete anything else, rebooted the phone then went to install link2sd from the market but when it goes to install it the phone reboots. I think it is soft reboot where it starts from the bootanimation. When I get back to phone it's not installed and all user apps are borked, they show with an SD icon in application settings but aren't in the app drawer nor in my apps on the market. Any ideas? Badword knows what's going on. Thanks a lot.

Could somebody tell me, can I use this wbaw's kernel on Swedish Snow RLS4b? Just wanna test gpu overclock which discribed here. Or maybe there is some other way to do gpu overclock?

activate a swap partition, works very well on mine. (256 MB too)





Format your sd card with and ext and a swap partition (on recovery), a2sd should activate this by default, if it detect the swap partition.

Updated to RLS5. Couple of new screenshots in the first post. RLS5 turned out to be a bit bigger update than I expected so I'm putting it out now to get some feedback. Many things have changed so you can consider this again as an early release. There might some bugs that need to be ironed out and I probably have to do at least one more release after this one. Haven't really had time to look into the new kernel so I'm still using the good old Turies based source. I'll post something built from the new source for people having touchscreen/camera issues in few days. Wipe shouldn't be needed updating from previous version, but if you have problems of any kind, do a full wipe first. No wipe, no whine policy still stands. Don't be alarmed when you have blank statusbar after a clean installation. There's something that doesn't like to be edited in statusbar layout but everything will be back to normal after a reboot (or after you plug your phone into a computer via USB). Couple of the old add-ons now unnecessary, added an add-on for classic gingerbread green circle battery mod, others add-ons just renamed. Only use add-ons/themes that were made using RLS5 files.

RLS5 changelog:
-completely re-wrote the ROM settings and few of the features
-added checkbox preference for long press back key kills foreground app. Delay still three times normal.
-added checkbox preference for volume key cursor controls
-added statusbar software keys. HOME, MENU and BACK softkeys with long press functions. (thanks to CyanogenMod)
-added checkbox preference for statusbar sofkeys. You need to reboot your phone for this setting to take effect.
-added framework patch to support MVNOs (mobile virtual network operators). I'm not held responsible for any roaming charges. (Inspired by leromarinvit)
-added checkbox preference for MVNO roaming. This equals ticking 'national roaming' box in CM7. You need to reboot your phone or use airplane mode for the setting to take effect.
-added swipe to clear notifications. Individual notifications can be cleared by swiping them to left or right (thanks to CyanogenMod)
-added VOLUME UP key works as shutter button in camera app. Pressing the key focuses and releasing the key takes the photo. VOLUME UP key also starts/stops recording in camcorder.
-kernel with overclocked GPU and AXI bus (thanks to wbaw for the patches)
-updated Maps and Youtube
-updated Google services framework
-removed flashlight
-tweaked TCP buffer sizes
-fixed some portuguese translations (thanks to jventura and HeartMode)
-updated hosts file
-switched to 128mb /system TPT. (thanks to Amphoras for the layout)

Wau. Looks like a very nice update there! I'll wait for some time for potential bugs to be unleashed and sorted and then consider to port it to Skate again :)

It would be helpfull to have a list of files that changed since RLS4

Great job, Konsta.

KonstaT never mind mate I installed link2sd without deleting 04dtapp from init.d and it seems to be working ok. Not sure I should be running both scripts at the same time, it added 11link2sd script to init.d so wondering if they might conflict? Thanks anyway; and thank you for the update looks good, I like the sound of having a dedicated camera key, something ZTE should have thought of :P

Good to see ya back doing what you do best . I was getting a little worried when you said rls4 was the last release. Going to try this now but I guess it will be as good as the rest of your roms. Thanks from me.
