This is my fresh build of CyanogenMod 7.2.0 (STABLE) for ZTE Skate based on Android 2.3.7

It's "vanilla CM7". This means I did not remove nor modify any components and I didn't add any additional ones.

This build is running my latest S3 kernel.

It is considered to be stable and suitable for everyday use.

Changelog for 31/10/2012 build
- synced with the latest CM7 sources
- new S3 kernel
--- CPU Governors revised
--- new CPU Governor - SmartassH3

Changelog for 14/09/2012 build
- synced with the latest CM7 sources
- new S3 kernel
--- support for additional light/prox sensors (ONA3301, ISL29026) - should solve prox sensor calibration issues
--- support for newer Skate models with different LCDs and touchscreens (except for SFR Staraddict - this one needs to be handled separately - thread with kernels coming soon)
--- other small fixes and configuration changes
- use upgrade instructions below to upgrade from previous version

Changelog for 31/08/2012 build
- synced with the latest CM7 sources
- volume boost policy change - default rom comes with stock volume (non-boosted). Boost can be applied additionaly. (see Addons section)
- Dev tools hidden from app drawer and moved to Settings / Applications / Development
- Spare parts hidden from app drawer and moved to Settings / CyanogenMod settings
- plenty of updated translations for different languages since the previous build
- use upgrade instructions below to upgrade from previous version

Changelog for 11/07/2012 build

- removed annoying "SIM Network Unlock" dialog
- use upgrade instructions below to upgrade from previous version

Changelog for 16/06/2012 build

- no "visible" changes or new features
- use upgrade instructions below to upgrade from previous version

Changelog for 09/06/2012 build

- libmedia: scaling of volume levels improved
- Settings / Display: option to hide status bar
- Settings / Language & Keyboard / Android keyboard: option to use volume keys to control cursor in text fields

Changelog for 01/06/2012 build
- synced with the latest CM7 sources
- all patches from previous build included:
---- Camera: fixed force closes whet setting scene modes or resetting default settings
---- Backport of virtual rotation sensor from ICS to improve orientation in Google Maps and similar apps
- Fixed anomalies in UI transitions introducing more cultivated UI animations
- soft buttons in status bar - turned off by default, can be enabled in CyanogenMod settings / Tablet tweaks
- webkit: Performance tweak backported from ICS (well, doesn't seem to improve things drastically, if at all. But feels good to have :) )
- RomManager removed (we're still not official...)
- GooManager integrated to bring the ROM update features

CM7 Specific Changelog
http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/wiki/Changelog#7.2.0

Known issues
- Magnetometer (compass) problem can affect certain type of applications that are using compass.
Problems should be expected in Google Sky Map
Google Maps, and some other compass related satnav applications seem to work OK!

Requirements
- system partition size: at least 150MB
- cache partition size: doesn't matter

Download
ROM: http://tinyw.in/OycH
Google Apps: http://tinyw.in/Plw0 ( MIRROR1 )

Installation instructions - fresh install wit data wipe / factory reset (see below for upgrade)
- put rom ZIP and gapps ZIP to SD card
- reboot to ClockworkMod Recovery
- make a backup of your current rom using menu: Backup & Restore / Backup
- wipe data / factory reset
- advanced / wipe dalvik cache
- mounts & storage / format system
- install zip from sd card - choose to install rom ZIP
- install zip from sd card - choose to install gapps ZIP
- reboot

Upgrade from my previous CM7 build - without data wipe / factory reset
This approach will maintain all of your installed applications.
In some cases there might be problems especially when using apps for linking
applications to SD ext partition (S2E, etc, Link2SD is OK, see the last step)
So if you are having any problems perform full wipe and install apps again instead.
- put rom ZIP and gapps ZIP to SD card
- reboot to ClockworkMod Recovery
- make a backup of your current rom using menu: Backup & Restore / Backup
- wipe cache
- advanced / wipe dalvik cache
- mounts & storage / format system
- install zip from sd card - choose to install rom ZIP
- install zip from sd card - choose to install gapps ZIP
- reboot
- if using Link2SD - launch it and choose to recreate mount script, reboot

Proximity senzor fixes (black screen during call issue)
These fixes are for all those having problems with standard proximity calibration available in Settings.
If standard calibration doesn't provide desired results try flashing one of the following predefined proximity data files.
They could solve prox senzor issues.
1) Prox update 1: http://tinyw.in/Mf19 if prox senzor still doesn't behave as it should, go for the next one
2) Prox update 2: http://tinyw.in/mW5V
Flash in clockworkmod, no wipes needed

Hotfixes
- None at this moment

Addons
1) Volume boost patch - this patch will boost the overall volume and change volume scaling levels.
Slight distortion at max level should be expected.
Download: http://tinyw.in/65k5
Flash in clockworkmod, no wipes needed

Thanks go to CM team, tilal6991 for providing the device config and all devs contributing to android community

Thanks C3C0 , i was waiting for this to happen since Cyanogenmod don't have an official device with their Cyanogenmod source for the ZTE Skate

And talking about the ROM do you think the compass can be fixed and the minor bugs too ? As well this fresh rom can be updated as well ?

BTW Thanks C3C0 for the RC2 of Cyanogenmod 7.2.0 i really appreciate your work :)

Well, I spent a whole day trying to solve the compass issues but had no luck. I even tried
to backport the virtual Rotation Sensor from ICS.
https://github.com/C...f14c309bd635805
But seems to have no effect.

I have also found some information that changes are needed at kernel level but was not able to find
any relevant info on AKM8962 sensor... I also asked in Blade forum (CM7 topic) but didn't get any response that could be helpful so far.

Nice work :)

Do you have to do the factory reset if you are running the previous version of CyanogenMod?

I guess the compass was not working in that either?

Probably a silly question, but can I backup and restore apps from CM9 into this? Would like to have a good try before my verdict is in

Compass problems are/were in all CM7 ROMs released in and after October 2011. In that time Google
changed some part in AOSP that broke it on almost all devices.

Upgrade instructions added in the first post.
