Could someone download and mirror it if possible? I haven't been able to download any kernel sources from ZTE in months (nothing but 404 errors).
 
 
OK, got it downloaded and mirrored here:

Nice!  Now we just need a dev to buy the phone. :)

Thats great news.

Konstat will you be looking to port Cyanogen to this by any chance?

No, porting CyanogenMod is not something that I, or anyone else, can do without actually having the device.
 
I did compile this kernel source though. Being a ZTE source, it doesn't even compile as is of course. :P I can upload the kernel if someone wants to test it.

I will give it a try if you like. What benefits will I get if it does flash ?

Overclocking? If KonstaT has enabled it?

I don't personally think the phone needs a over clocking kernel. Undevolting and core stability maybe. Similar to what's happening with the nexus 4. There's nothing this phone hasn't run smoothly without the need of reduction in battery life. Will flash it still out of curiosity, and to throw in a good antutu score though and to see if it works. I also think it might be a good idea to all owners of the blade v to though a few quid Konstas way so he can get a blade v. Probably the best dev on modaco and certainly a Dev we need onboard to help get this phone more popular as I personally think its a bargain and has the potential of being the next big thing like the original blade.

I'd be up for that though I'm not sure there's a big enough community to crowd fund a phone purchase!

None, besides being open source. Actually the whole point of it is that it should be exactly like the stock kernel (or otherwise ZTE didn't release GPL compliant source code).
 
Here's a CWM flashable zip of the kernel built (clean ZTE source, no modifications, stock defconfig). Don't forget make a nandroid backup in CWM before installing of course. Test that all the hardware (wifi, camera, sensors, etc) is working and verify that you are really running the new kernel by doing
cat /proc/version

in terminal/shell or get the kernel info by using some system info/benchmark app.

Yeah, I've said that MSM8x25Q should be decent platform for entry level devices and something that I'm already somewhat familiar with. There's always some problems with donated hardware though. It's always possible that I can't deliver what ever it is that you're asking. Blade V is not available in my country so I couldn't get my hands on one even if you donated me money.
 
I'm also still waiting Google's official KitKat announcement, AOSP source release and some indications from Qualcomm what it means hardware wise. MSM7x27A/MSM8x25/MSM8x25Q (single-, dual-, quad-core variants of basically the same platform) already skipped Jelly Bean 4.2 and 4.3 (or EOL'd on 4.1 is the current interpretation). I'd consider it extremely strange if Qualcomm would have introduced a new platform that was practically dead on birth. I'm counting on all Snapdragon 200 platforms (MSM8x25Q included) getting KitKat support from Qualcomm and this would also be positive for development on the older variants. It's of course also possible that this won't happen and purchasing any MSM8x25Q device wouldn't make much sense after that.
 
This is going to take at least month or two, so I'm not going to make any decissions about buying myself a new dev toy until sometime around new year anyway. It also depends if Google Play starts selling devices in my country like rumored. Then it wouldn't make much sense to buy anything other than a Nexus 5 (and retire from ROM development ;)). I'm also eyeing out on one specific mid-range device that should be fun for open source development and should be available sometime around Christmas. We'll see, I might buy some ~100€ device as a toy nevertheless. :P

Konstat, you should think about getting a Xiaomi Hongmi, xiaomi is open sourcing their kernels, they released the kernel for the Mi2 today which uses the Qualcomm APQ8064 Snapdragon: http://www.gizchina....eleased-github/

 

They are going to be releasing the kernel sourcecode for the WCDMA version of xiaomi hongmi (unreleased phone) which using the Mediatek MT6589T 1.5ghz quad a7, 4.7" 720p screen, 1gb ram, 4gb rom. This will be the first kernel released for a mediatek chip as far as i'm aware. The price will probably be £90-115 delivered to uk, tasty phone by a big brand.

No, anything from Xiaomi is out of the question. They've been blatantly breaking GPL for years and releasing kernel source for one device just isn't enough (it's their legal obligation, there's nothing noble/newsworthy in releasing it). They've also built a multi-million business on building off of CyanogenMod code without ever giving anything back. They're basically against everything that open source means to me personally. Their devices won't be available in the west anyway (they're hardly available in China) so there's no point in even speculating with any of this.
 
There's been dozens of kernel sources available for MediaTek devices. It has nothing to do with reference platform source code that is necessary to build AOSP based ROMs (and remains unavailable to public).

it isn't one device, they have announced the 6 devices that will be getting open source kernels: http://www.gizchina....evice-kernel/.

 

Their phones will be going on sale in the west in 2014 although you can buy their phones from chinese websites and get them imported for the time being. Xiaomi is going to be the new zte/huewei in western markets. Jaiyu is also releasing a low cost phone with similar specs too and they will also be releasing the kernel source if i remember correctly, their phone is 799 yuan, xiaomi's is 699 yuan.

And how about the 600 devices they've released MIUI ROMs for? They're all violating GPL agreement.
 
Saying that something is going to be 'the new zte/huawei' doesn't have all positive undertone. ;)

I try to port CM 10.1 to Blade V if KonstanT can help for me! I think the best solution port from ZTE Blade G or Huawei Y300 Cyanogen Rom to Blade V!  But Blade G have MSM 8225 SoC!
