First of all: This is a 600MHz CPU single core! And yet, it runs very well the JB for which it was not built.
I love this phone. :wub:
Not because it's a great machine... it's not.
Not because it's very fast... it's not.
But it has given me so much pleasure in tweaking it to the last bit... the last MHz...
It's like picking a FIAT 600 and tune it to Indianapolis.
It's like... doing the impossible... and this guys from this Topic have made a terrific job!!!!

I think the ROM would benefit from a better GPU utilization optimization (if thats possible) in UI rendering (including APPS, etc.) so that it basically behaves all the time like it does in the Gallery (which is buttery smooth).

Aside from that... the only real problem with this ROM is essentially the keyboard which is painfully slow.
Even Swiftkey has slowdown problems and takes some time before the letters are entered after pressing (not sure what causes these delays though) at certain times.

I realize the keyboard behaves a lot better/smoother under Gingerbread and Froyo, but short of going back to those old ROM's, is there any way the keyboard could be optimized?

Disable popup and vibration, disable "smart" word prediction (that thing which analyses most used words)

btw, I'm using smart keyboard pro now and I think it's the fastest (even though I'm on ICS because 4.2.2 is just too damm slow), plus it's the one who makes better use of the space for the keys

All possible improvements are already done. For god's sake, we even have fully working Project Butter on ARM6 processor, that sounds like a joke. Apps are slow because of low RAM (4.x eats a lot more than 2.x) or because they are meant for faster processor. This can't be changed. Try CM10/CM9 if you want, for some it's faster than CM10.1.

I assume your Blade is a "Sapo a5" and has a 5Mpixel camera... Well, it should work fine on any CM version!
Mine works fine!


No. Is a "Optimus San Francisco" with 3.2Mpixel camera.

Somebody can help ?

Hey guys, just want to report a little bug. At least I think it's a bug. When I boot my ZTE Blade and don't use after booting, the screen turns off as usual after a couple of seconds, but the home-button, the menu-button and the return-button are still shining. They don't turn off automatically. I have to use the Blade first, and then the buttons turn off. Anyway, thank you very much for the custom rom. It is great.

Well, your button backlight preference is written on every reboot after I added an option for it. But how can you 'not use' your phone after reboot? You still need to input your PIN and that should be enough. You can of course always disable button backlight all together (Settings -> Advanced -> Button backlight).

I also have a ZTE BLADE and since I've been using 4.0 or 4.1 from KonstaT the camera doesn't work very well. It's kind a slow and have poor result on each pic. But I believe that the bad pictures are a result of that slow shooter.

Just for the record:
Many people don't have the PIN enabled.... I don't!

Thanks for your answer. I don't have the PIN enabled. So when I boot my Blade every morning, I don't have to use it. I disabled the button backlights now and it all works fine. :-) Thanks again.

I think the real question is:
Why do you turn your Blade OFF????
It's supposed to be ON all the time!

well as far as i know, there is no jelly bean 4.3 ,rather the key lime pie would be a 4.3 version(as reported on a site), which has been found working on nexus 4,7,10 and a huwaie device and also a low end new device with 512mb ram. so maybe our blade will also be able to handle the upcoming version if they they don't change the kernel completely ,making it incompatible (which has high probability).

I thought KLP would be 5.0 and not 4.3...

Yes, MMS works fine, and without any configuration!
