It looks like a lot like a Vivacity (iPhone 4 aping, capacitive buttons), but of course that's no guarantee ROMs for one will work on the other. If you want to try, I would install clockworkmod first (I don't see any reason why the build and instructions in this thread shouldn't work). Then you can make a nandroid backup of the stock rom, so you can go back to that if things go horribly wrong. If a ROM isn't compatible with your phone, it either won't boot or things will be glitchy / won't work. It shouldn't break anything permanently.

Yes Vivacity ROMs are perfectly compatible with the Atlas W, I have it myself and it is only a debranded and unlocked vivacity
@HiTom: I am gonna post a little guide trough the CyanogenMod roms available for your device soon

There are three versions of CyanogenMod for the ZTE atlas, CM7, CM9 and CM10.
All of the have some bugs, Cm7 has the fewest and CM9 the most, Cm7 is also best for battery life and it's fast but it is not smooth.
Cm9 is not really fast or smooth and has the most bugs.
CM10 has a few bugs more than CM7 but most stuff works, the problems are that the front camera and FM radio don't work (these are the only bugs from CM7) ,video recording is laggy and camera flash dosen't work.It is pretty smooth and pretty fast
If you want any Cyanogenmod version you need to have ClockWorkMod recovery installed.
Do this by follwing these guides: http://www.getandroi...zte-crescent/2/ and http://www.getandroi...zte-crescent/2/
Then you can download CM7 from here:
http://www.modaco.co...t-updated-2806/
Download the Rom, the vivacity kernel and the gapps. Put them on your SD card and install them via Clockworkmod recovery how it is described in the thread but be sure to make a backup first, also via CWM recovery.
If you want CM10 you should take this ROM: http://www.modaco.co...ent-17-12-2012/
It is like CM10 but has way more settings and on our device fewer bugs. You'll need to downloadAnd install them with CWM recovery. Install TMV variant first.

Thank you really really very much :D i was looking for a guide like this, unfortunately i dont have time to try it now, but i will try to install it ASAP and will reply to you how did it go :) Thanks!

And the only question i got left is, how can i root my device? All i know about rooting is, there are different ways in every device to root them, so how can i root my Atlas W 3.5?
