this is a CyanogenMod 10.2 based ROM for ZTE V9 - the resistive screen model. NOTE this is NOT an official CyanogenMod rom. it is likely to have bugs and be incomplete and to eat all your data. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. having said that, it seems stable and fast and better than cm10.1 in every way. this is the rom I use daily.

cm-10.2-20131226-PenguinKANG-v9.zip  (goo.gl/Tg1kuF) from mega or goo.gl/HU3nHU from yandex.
md5sum d857bf0ff0130a46830ccf7492857c08

get gapps from KonstaT's 4.3 blade thread here (gapps link is in the first post).
 
use this ClockworkMod Recovery which uses the home/menu/back touch screen buttons.
md5sum 302fa9d7f8b7bdbb76ad5e73c6d5e582
 
Downloading
the download site mega has significant cpu and memory usage, so downloading the rom directly to your v9 is unlikely to work. download to a PC and then transfer the rom zip to the v9's sdcard.

the yandex link is plain http and stands a good chance of downloading directly to a v9.
NOTE: no matter what the source - always check that the md5sum is correct!
 

Installing

boot to CWM, backup, format /system, install the rom, install gapps

Important Notes
- backup all your v9 including /data and /sd-ext before trying this rom. it is highly likely that things will break if you flip back and forward between cm10.1 and cm10.2 using the same /data.
- you will need >190MB in /system to flash this rom (my .au Optus v9 has 220MB), and initial boot will take ~5mins
- this ROM is for the resistive screen V9's only - capacitive V9c touch screens won't work.
- there is not enough space in a 220MB /system partition for both gapps and Focal (~25MB) so Focal is not included. it doesn't really work anyway.
- as with all cm10.2 updates from previous versions, the phone shortcut will break. delete it and copy in a new one from apps
- if you are booting to a non-wiped /data then android will restart some services (including surfaceflinger) to complete the update and adb will stop working too. reboot the phone to fix adb.

Working
- everything?
- phone, sms, screen, etc.
- bluetooth (seems better than 10.1?)
- FM
- wifi tethering
- V9parts
- ...

Not working
- sometimes wifi doesn't set the default route the first time after boot - just turn wifi off and on again
- the maps view in eg. Maps and MyTracks sometimes flickers and jumps annoyingly.
- SELinux (will never work because of the ar6000.ko binary wifi/bt blob)
- Focal (never really worked and cm have removed it now anyway)
 
Noticable changes from cm10.1
- everything feels a bit faster?! I'm as shocked as you are...
- movie preview images work
- CM Account - ie. remote device locate and wipe
- Security->App ops where you can see what your apps are up to (also available as Security->PrivacyGuard->Advanced)
- early bootanim not distorted
- live wallpapers work
- all other android 4.3 and cm10.2 bugfixes, etc.

Transparent changes
- this rom is now based mostly on androidarmv6 repos

Minor Issues that affect all ARMv6 ports
- AOSP keyboard gesture typing doesn't (won't ever) work
- voice search from the google search app doesn't work. Voice search from browser is ok

suggestions and patches are welcome for all the above issues!!

Linking to and Mirroring this rom
it's both useful and fun for me to be able to see rom download stats. I get to see which roms are popular and where most of my users are. that helps me to focus my work where it does the most good.

  • If you want to link to this rom from another forum then link to this post. please do not post other "more direct" links.
  • if you want to setup a mirror of the above rom then that's ok, but please only do it via a goo.gl link that you tell me about. ie. mirror, setup a goo.gl link to the mirror rom (or ask me to generate one for you), publish the goo.gl download link (along with a link to this post), and then send me the goo.gl url. thanks. if the mirrored file link is cryptographically unique (so it can't be trojan'd later) then I'm also happy to publish it as an "official" alternate download link.

Building
- all sources and instructions are on my github

ChangeLog
20131226
 - refresh upstream to cm10.2 final (android 4.3.1)
 - includes whisperpush for secure SMS
 
20131029
- I ported llvm/libbcc/RenderScript etc. to armv6
- so LiveWallpapers now work (which makes me happy, but possibly nobody else cares) :)
- fixed texture corruption in standard LiveWallpapers
- forced hardware graphics - not sure if this is a slight win or loss.
- refreshed CM from upstream

20131015
- fixed early bootanimation distortion
- upstream update to Android 4.3.1
 
20130919
- fixed FM
- included Effem
- fixed wifi tethering
- CyanogenMod fixed DeviceParts
- built with gcc 4.8

20130910 - initial release
- the usual patches for electronbeam rotation, faster wifi reconnect, gesture keyboard crash, ...
- fix armv6 alignment that was crashing com.android.phone
- fix ath6k wifi module load sleep required before scanning
- fix crash when selinux disabled
- ...
- change build to use mostly androidarmv6 upstream

Many thanks to all those working on CyanogenMod and armv6 and especially to the androidarmv6 folks and to KonstaT, legaCyMod

definitely still under construction. however the immediate problem was that modaco wasn't working from australia - everything timed out. I had to edit the post via another country.

I've updated the first post as I think bluetooth is ok in the rom too. it works fine with the bluetooth keyboard I have here - no scanning issues or connection dramas, but I might just have got lucky. unfortunately I don't have any other bt devices to test with... <_<

can someone please try to connect to eg. a bluetooth headset and report back?

I used the initial connection/scanning method that folks have found to work best with cm10.1:
- start with bt off
- drag down the quick settings panel
- hold down the bluetooth icon
- that pops up the bt settings screen
- turn on bt

thanks.

Thank you :) excellent offer once more.

I tried to install but ... I get the messsage:

Installing update...
assert failed: getprop ("ro.product.device") == "v9" || getprop ("ro.build.product") == "v9"
E: error in /sdcard/cm-10.2-20130910.zip
(status 7)
installation aborted

Any idea?

usually it means you have the wrong CWM recovery installed on the phone.
the variables above are set in recovery and are checked by the rom before installing to make sure that the phone matches the rom.

what is your cwm version?

if you have adb setup then
adb shell
getprop | grep product
and amongst those listed you should see the two above are set to 'v9' by your recovery image.

also, the zip name above doesn't match the zip I uploaded - have you modified the zip? in which case all bets are off :)

what is your cwm version? --> 4.0.1.5

I'll try to update the recovery

edit: does anyone have instructions to install a newer recovery?

Thank you :)

I can't use the new recovery :( !@#!#$@#$
It returns my selection to reboot system now (it ignores my selection every time)

Moved back to 4.0 recovery :(

I'll try adb instead..


Found this newer version of the recovery (5.0.2.8) here: http://old.port-andr...org-zte-v9.html

@ PBP Just flashed your file on my V9 sucessfully :)

these newer recovery images seem to confuse everyone to start with - they are touch recoveries. the UI changed.
use the home touch button to select, and the back touch button (or power) to go back, and as before use volume up/down to go up/down in the menus.

ok - let me know if you find something else that's not working.

BTW - if anyone wants to help out then porting V9parts to cmhw (eg. like this) might be a neat little project - it's only java - how hard can it be? :) Just fork and then send me a github pull request.

Bluetooth is working fine with my earpiece. It connects and disconnects successfully each time :) (has a better sound quality too)

Wifi tethering is not working

Hi!

I was eager to test this but already noticed that wifi teather is not working. This is one of the tasks I use extensively in the V9 so will only try a ROM which includes this feature.

Thanks again for all your good work!!

I've tried this...it amazed me that run faster then your ROM 10.1. Bravo...But  Totally I've not tested yet all features. The problem that I face with this Rom is I can't run a2sd dark tremor like your Rom 10. Although you have mentioned that there is no difference between ROM 10 and ROM 10.1 but practically differ. I can run a2sd on ROM 10.1 easely but your ROM 10 and the new one 10.2 always truck on android logo...as you know after installaion my  internal memory  only a few left so a2sd become urgent fot me. But BTW thanks for your unimagineable effort ...
