Presenting... the first (released) build of CyanogenMod 7 for the ZTE Crescent!

You need a 130MB system partition minimum for this ROM.

This ROM is suitable for both the Orange San Francisco II, the T-Mobile Vivacity and the Telenor Touch Plus. It is 75% flibblesan's work, with me only getting Wi-Fi to work and a few extra goodies.

Check the second post for known issues and the third for a change log.

Sources:
  • Device: github.com/Dazzozo/android_device_zte_blade2/tree/gingerbread
  • Proprietaries: github.com/Dazzozo/proprietary_vendor_zte/tree/gingerbread
  • Kernel: github.com/CyanogenMod/zte-kernel-msm7x27/tree/2.6.35
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' -> Google Talk w/ Video Chat
  • Optional: 'Install zip from sdcard' -> 'Choose zip from sdcard' -> A2SD
  • '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.

Yeah, you've seen it yourself. It could potentially mean no front camera in CM9/AOKP too. Oh hell, anything AOSP.

I won't give up on it, though, it'll always be there rattling in my head. :P

Edit: Rear should be possible in ICS, just needs some time put in to it.

People can feel free to release customised ROMs based on these if they wish, by the way. I'm open to that sort of thing. :P Compiling from source is probably something a lot of people are afraid of doing.

If you intend to do this, though, make sure you keep your modifications somewhere as obviously none of the ROMs are complete and you'll probably want to update yours as things are fixed. :lol:

Front camera is the one that looks at you (Doesn't work...yet)
Rear camera is the one you use to take photos and videos (Works)

The main problems, you can thank ZTE for, cos they haven't released all the stuff they need to.

Yeah I'm not going to lie - there's a lot ZTE could've done to make this less of a pain in the arse to do. :lol:

Nevertheless, we'll plough on...

Hmm, Camera should be working to an extent as I disabled the front one causing the FCs. Can you get me a logcat?

Edit: Oh dear God please don't say the Vivacity has different cameras too...
