Oh look another continuation of CM9!

>inb4 lol ics is so old why not port cm11

 

You need a 220MB system partition minimum for this ROM (180MB without Google apps). Stock partition layout is ideal but if you are having problems such as missing Google apps, you will need to find an appropriate TPT.

For those who have no idea what Ice Cream Sandwich looks like...

This ROM is suitable for the Orange San Francisco II, the T-Mobile Vivacity and the Telenor Touch Plus. It is the collaborative efforts of tilal6991, Fuzzra and Dazzozo and is pretty much a port of ColdFusionX from the Blade and Skate to the Crescent.

 

Details:

  • Android 4.0.4 - Ice Cream Sandwich in CyanogenMod flavour! With all the latest updates since 2012!
  • Adreno 200 ARMv6 GPU drivers for awesome 3D performance - Ice Cream Sandwich running smooth on the Crescent!
  • Hardware acceleration! (hell even omx might be working thanks to the hacky hacks)

Sources:

  • Device: github.com/Dazzozo/android_device_zte_blade2 (will replace with own repo if I make changes)
  • Proprietaries: github.com/Dazzozo/proprietary_vendor_zte
  • Kernel: github.com/CyanogenMod/zte-kernel-msm7x27

This is a continuation of the work from the previous thread created by Dazzozo http://www.modaco.co...t-updated-1307/

 

Instructions

  • Grab the ROM and gapps
  • Boot in to Recovery
  • 'Wipe Data/Factory Reset' - If you're on CM9 already and in an edgy mood you can probably skip this step
  • 'Install zip from sdcard' -> 'Choose zip from sdcard' -> ROM
  • 'Install zip from sdcard' -> 'Choose zip from sdcard' -> Google apps (unless you hate google)
  • Optional: 'Install zip from sdcard' -> 'Choose zip from sdcard' -> A2SD http://tinyw.in/Zjvl
  • 'Reboot System Now'
  • Give it time - first boot takes longer than usual.
  • Run through the first time setup, language, date/time, Google account etc.

What type of device do I have?:

  • P736V: Orange San Francisco II, Free Blade S and other variants.
  • P736E: T-Mobile Vivacity, Telenor Touch Plus and other variants.

Downloads:

Other Credits:

  • tilal6991 - for being awesome, helping Dazzozo with getting started and offering a ton of advice and fixes.
  • Dazzozo - god of crescent
  • Fuzzra - getting this off the ground in the first place, we wouldn't be here now without his initial work!
  • Fuzzra and UndauntedOlly - Orange UK Signal Boost!
  • TomGiordano - the ZTE overlord.
  • fr0do - the awesome Vivacity guinea-pig with getting the buttons fixed up!
  • The entire CyanogenMod team - we'd be pretty stuck without them!

Nice to see someone build for blade2 again, I really should release some builds I've made as well.

 

You should be able to fix most of the not working but being worked on stuff,besides maybe tethering with this

https://github.com/C...ate/commits/ics

https://github.com/j...ade/commits/ics

The commit I'd find the most important is Added script to fix youtube reboots, which fixes crashes when viewing videos over longer durations.

 I actually have actually made a "working" but pretty broken build of CM11, when it's usable I will release it, but a lot of work remains to be done mainly on androidarmv6

Hope will see a CM10/11 with all those fixes because I think that ICS is a little bit outdated...

Welp bad news guys no new builds today. School work's gotta take priority, sorry :/

 

Some quick updates

 

1. Isolated g+ error! Will investigate when I have time.

2. https://drive.google...dit?usp=sharing this is the build i forgot to upload for the p736e on thursday.

 

UPDATE ON THE GOOGLE+ ISSUE. (i.e. i just asked dazzozo lol)

Google+ now uses ARMv7 native code. As such it no longer works with our device. If anyone has an older version that would be great.

That's strange because on a 2.3 ROM, is still can be downloaded from store.

Does this mean Google thinks "4.x ROM = Arm7 smartphone only" ?
