The blade, skate and crescent all share the MSM7227 CPU. Which is armv6.

The current list looks right. Crescent is actually MSM7227T according to Qualcomm, which is actually identical to MSM7227 with higher stock clock speeds. :P

People are asking for more, when actually I'm fairly sure we have the most working on this relatively new chipset. It's not "just" MSM7227 with an ARMv7 core smacked on top as was reported by the news, it's a completely different design to MSM7227.

As more and more people pick up devices with this SoC the work gets easier as you have more people working on the same stuff. I already have a Huawei device I'm "watching" that is of the same generation of Huawei devices, and shares a lot of Huawei weirdness in common, other than obviously the chipset. That led to the discovery of the CWM charge fix.

If anyone's curious, the T that Dazzozo is referring to means 'Turbo' I think.

ZTE UK got back to me and said N880E wasn't available in the UK. I asked them to publish/provide source anyway.

I asked other ZTE contacts as well (worldwide) but no other responses yet. If they dont get back to me I'll hash something together from

GPL licence violation could lead to your right to market uncompliant devices being withdrawn.

http://www.gnu.org/l...es/gpl-2.0.html

The Linux Kernel (which is present in every running Android ROM in some shape or form) is licensed under the GPL (General Public License - version 2).

There is no provision in the GPL to withhold access to sources based on time or other conditions, so please don’t attempt this, as it will only earn yourself a formal GPL request. If you do not provide the correct, accurate, and up-to-date sources (and keep them up-to-date), you will be non-compliant with the GPL.

In order to be fully GPL compliant, your sources must:

Successfully build and produce a valid output file, which is the same format as provided in the binary
Contain all source code, interface definition files, scripts used to control compilation and installation of the executable (it is not required to include the actual compiler/toolchain, but sufficient information should be made available to obtain the SAME configuration, including compiler flags, as used to build the binary version as released)

The GPL is a legally enforceable license agreement, and while it offers users freedoms to copy and redistribute code, that permission is conditional upon all changes which are released being made publicly available. If you require further advice on this matter, we suggest you review the license itself or consult a lawyer.

[email protected] - Free Software Foundation

If there seems to be a real violation, the next thing you need to do is record the details carefully:

the precise name of the product
the name of the person or organization distributing it
email addresses, postal addresses and phone numbers for how to contact the distributor(s)
the exact name of the package whose license is violated
how the license was violated:


If they still play up I'll copy them in on a licence violation report + let them know I'm sending a Compatibility Test Suite (CTS) report to google which could result in market (play) access being withdrawn.

Badass! If only Huawei released source for the Wi-Fi module. :P

Also, the Blade II is a different device to the Crescent. We initially thought the terms could be used interchangeably but then ZTE released a second device, actually marketed with the name Blade II.

I believe the Blade II is actually 7x27a, but I'm not certain.

You don't have much of a case here. ;) There's a whole line of ZTE devices that go with board name atlas40 (N880E, V880E, V889D, Skate Acqua, Medion P4012, Momodesign MD Droid, Telecom R22, etc). These are virtually the same device. There's already two kernel sources available for this device (here and here). It's basically the same 3.0.8 source but in the second release they updated few drivers and removed all of their (sometimes useful) ZTE specific comments from the code. Jelly Bean update for N880E was released at very early stage (see my post here for download) and it still had that same 3.0.8 kernel.

If you want to get GPL on ZTE's ass, I've got a 3.0.21 kernel for ZTE N880F (msm8625 device for CDMA network in Blade III casing). I know these ZTE devices can be very confusing... :P

CTS is designed for OEMs to verify that their modifications won't break Android APIs. It has nothing do with the kernel source and you can't even make a report unless you have an actual device to run the test with.

ZTE Skate Acqua has a jelly bean update coming. I think I read something about update for Blade III but can't find a link.

Thanks Konstat

So there's little point in asking for JB source as long as a 3.0.8 source is available?

Re CTS, I've got to hold my hands up, it would be little more than blackmail. I have access to a couple of ZTE devices and can run CTS against them. Bound to be some failures. "Release the source for xxxxx busters or I send google a copy of CTS test failures for phone yyyy" hehe
