This is my port of ZTE Blade ROM - Swedish Snow - originally made by KonstaT.
I am releasing this ROM with kind permission from KonstaT.


The basic ROM itself is 100% working including all subsystems thus is suitable for daily use.

Kernel was built from KonstaT's blade kernel sources that I have reconfigured for Skate.

Features:
-rooted
-unsecured boot.img
-etc/init.d support
-Superuser and su binary
-busybox
-Darktremor A2SD
-deodeoxed
-gen2 proprietary libs from ZTE update 4G4G_GENERIC_P729V1.0.0B25
-saunalahti RILs
-trimmed plenty of useless stuff
-removed Comviq/Tele2 branding
-apks resigned, compressed, optimized and zipaligned
-fully customisable CM7 look-a-like scrollable notification power widget with 9 toggles (thanks to lidroid)
*wifi, mobile data, GPS, bluetooth, sync, auto-rotate, flight mode, brightness and sound/vibrate
-reboot and recovery options in power menu
-screenshot in power menu (thanks to Ceco for porting it to skate)
-MIUI style battery bar (thanks to Pvy)
-ROM settings embedded into settings menu
-CRT screen off animation
-transparent notification area
-changed default wallpaper
-silenced low battery sound
-updated Google apps
-Terminal Emulator
-No-frills CPU Control
-AppWidgetPicker
-FlashLight
-FM-Radio (thanks to andorko)
-USB Charging Commander (thanks to t0mm13b)
-adfree hosts file - almost no ads (please support app developers by buying their apps instead)
-HSPA differentation
-cache2tmpfs when /cache is smaller than 20mb
-CM7 dialer, contacts & messaging
-CM7 gallery & deskclock
-CM7 DSP Manager
-CM7 keyboard
-replaced launcher
-added some language support
-fixed time format H.mm -> H:mm in finnish and norwegian locales
-support for RTL languages (thanks to Madmack)
-support for bootsound (place the sound you want to play during boot to /system/media/audio/ui/bootsound.mp3)
-volume key music controls. When screen is off and music is playing long press on volume up/down keys changes next/prev music track. (thanks to CyanogenMod)
-statusbar brightness control. Sliding on closed statusbar changes screen brightness (thanks to daryelv)
-lockscreen displays next alarm time from any app
-call connect vibrate disabled
-volume key cursor controls. Volume up/down keys can be used as d-pad left/right when in text fields. (thanks to azuwis)
-disabled scrolling cache (inspired by AndroidON)
-long press on back key kills foreground app. I've increased the long press delay to three times normal so this can't be used by accident. Use with caution, only for misbehaving apps! (thanks to CyanogenMod)
-ability to toggle between ringer volume/vibrate/silent using volume keys. Volume down key can be used to toggle between vibrate/silent. (inspired by mkasick)
-much more...

More info and screenshots can be found in the official KonstaT's thread at:

There are also addons available. Most of them should work on Skate, too - except for those replacing the kernel.

All credits go to KonstaT. The effort he put into making this ROM is incomparably greater than mine put into porting it!

No. Torch app uses display. Blade doesn't have flash led.

Ah, OK. The link to the app on the market says it controls the LED as well as an on-screen torch :)

KonstaT released new version of ROM today.
New features look to be amazing. I will wait for some time for any potential bugs to be sorted out and then
make a Skate port again.

RLS5 changelog: 6.3.2012
-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)

I think this is a very good rom,excellent battery,stable,and you can use the cool themes from the blade...For a daily driver you can't go wrong here.I love all the ics & ice armor stuff,but you can't beat a good old solid gingerbread rom with no problems.
Looking forward to RLS5.

RLS5 has still some issues to iron out. It looks like there will be RLS6 soon that will deal with those issues and contain additional improvements. I will wait for this one to port.
