I remember how buggy ICS was on the Blade after it was released in AOSP - CyanogenMod decided that it wasn't worth supporting, hardware video acceleration didn't work and didn't look like working, lots of the old developers as well as ZTE started moving on to newer phones, and it generally seemed like an uphill battle. I thought gingerbread would be the limit for the Blade, but it looks like been proven wrong. I just flashed this onto my old Blade which I gave to my dad and it seems to be running really well, with no important features missing.
So congratulations to KonstaT and all others who have been involved in getting ICS and JB to work so well - its brought new life to my Blade again, and I really appreciate the effort that's gone into it.
As good as my Galaxy Nexus is, It's sometimes disappointing how easy it is to hack, and I miss all the fun you guys have.
