Presenting... the first ever build of AOKP for the ZTE Crescent!

You need a 200MB system partition minimum for this ROM (160MB without Google apps). Stock partition layout is ideal but if you are having problems such as missing Google apps, use the TPT at the bottom of the post.

For those who have no idea what Ice Cream Sandwich looks like...

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

This ROM is suitable for both the Orange San Francisco II and the T-Mobile Vivacity. It is the collaborative efforts of tilal6991, Fuzzra and me (in that order!) and is hacked together from the AOKP sources using some elements of CM9 (such as webkit and dalvik). What does this mean to you?

Details:
  • Android 4.0.4 - Ice Cream Sandwich in AOKP flavour!
  • AOKP: Android Open Kang Project!
  • Adreno 200 ARMv6 GPU drivers for awesome 3D performance - Ice Cream Sandwich running smooth on the Crescent!
  • Hardware acceleration!
Check the second post for known issues and the third for a change log.

Sources:
  • Device: github.com/Dazzozo/android_device_zte_blade2
  • Proprietaries: github.com/Dazzozo/proprietary_vendor_zte
  • Kernel: github.com/CyanogenMod/zte-kernel-msm7x27
This is a continuation of the work from the previous thread created by Fuzzra: http://android.modac...test-cm9-build/

Instructions:(have some sense and read them)
  • Grab the ROM and Google apps (links below) and stick them on your SD.
  • Vivacity/Touch Plus: Grab the Vivacity/Touch Plus kernel for correct touchscreen support - the one packaged with the ROM is for San Francisco II users.
  • Boot in to Recovery by turning the phone off, and turning it on while holding the volume down key.
  • 'Wipe Data/Factory Reset'
  • 'Install zip from sdcard' -> 'Choose zip from sdcard' -> ROM
  • 'Install zip from sdcard' -> 'Choose zip from sdcard' -> Google apps
  • Vivacity/Touch Plus: 'Install zip from sdcard' -> 'Choose zip from sdcard' -> Kernel
  • Optional: 'Install zip from sdcard' -> 'Choose zip from sdcard' -> A2SD
  • Optional: 'Install zip from sdcard' -> 'Choose zip from sdcard' -> Ice Cream Sandwich boot animation
  • 'Reboot System Now'
  • Give it time - first boot takes longer than usual.
  • Run through the first time setup, language, date/time, Google account etc.
  • Have fun!
If you still have issues (other than those mentioned in the second post), post in the thread.

Downloads:TPT:(provided by Amphoras)
200mb system, 40mb cache, 200mb data: Orange San Francisco II | T-Mobile Vivacity

Other Credits:
  • tilal6991 - for being awesome, helping me with getting started and offering a ton of advice and fixes.
  • Fuzzra - getting this off the ground in the first place, we wouldn't be here now without his initial work!
  • TomGiordano - the ZTE overlord.
  • fr0do - the awesome Vivacity guinea-pig with getting the buttons fixed up!
  • The entire AOKP team - we'd be pretty stuck without them!

Working:
  • Hardware Acceleration
  • Mobile Data - 3G/2G
  • Network and RIL
  • Sound
  • Sensors
  • Live Wallpapers
  • USB Mass Storage
  • Calculator
  • Gallery
  • Rear Camera
  • Wi-Fi and indicator
  • Bluetooth (needs Wi-Fi on)
  • Camcorder
Not Working:
  • Panorama
  • Hardware decoding (and probably never will work)
  • Front Camera
Hardware decoding: Qualcomm are required to release an OpenMAX integration layer update that is compatible with Ice Cream Sandwich due to the device unfortunately being one of many which are MSM7227 QDSP5. The chances of this happening are pretty much zero. If you want more information, or a petition to sign (again) in the hope it actually gets somewhere: http://www.groubal.c...-from-qualcomm/

We are listed in the petition in the device list as "ZTE Blade S".

Currently setting up a build environment on a VM that PsYcHoKiLLa lovingly set up.

We already have working Android-level firmware, the problem is in the kernel. It's my next priority, don't worry.

This is a very early build. There are some graphical glitches (such as a red border around the screen on some touch input). Be as specific as you can when reporting issues. Expect problems, and don't plan on staying on this build of the ROM.


Making this more stable isn't a focus for me at this point, the Wi-Fi issue is as I think that's what's really hitting people hard. Honestly, just use CM9. This is more of a proof of concept at the moment.

Looks very exciting dude, as you say the graphical glitch makes it quite difficult to test properly but is good as a proof of concept... guess this will be for further dev once CM9 is stable or will you work on both?

I'll work on both. As progress is made I'll put a build out in both flavours.

I've just tried this out and, apart from the known issues (WiFi, camera, red borders), the only issue I had was the LED torch not working.

I will definitely be switching to this ROM permanently as soon as the WiFi and camera are working.

I'm new to Modaco and I have tried out the beta for this splendid version of Android on my San Francisco II and I have found out that every now and again, when testing out the software, the phone turns off and restarts a few minutes later when pressing the on button, don't know whether this is because I'm charging the phone using my PC and also when this happens, the usb port on my PC also malfunctions yet I plug-in other devices and the same port works as normal. Does anyone else have the same issue as this may need addressing, I'll post more on this later on.
