I have a broken zte blade v, that I managed to snap a pin to the sim card through my own stupidity. Before I binned the phone, I have been having a little play and used clockwork to install a V956 MIUI rom off a Chinese language sight - google translate was surprisingly good. It boots up and appears to work. Except when I left and returned 10 mins later, I couldn't get the screen to re-light.
Got me wondering if there is any use exploring this route for a custom rom?
