[DEV][ROM][29.3.] CyanogenMod 12 (Android 5.0.2) for ZTE Open C / Kis 3

Recommended Posts

Here's an early taste of Lollipop for ZTE Open C / Kis 3 (Beeline Smart2, Moche/MEO Smart A16, ZTE V811W, ZTE V811, Skinny V811, Optus Hop Smart, ZTE Blade M, etc). It is unofficial and unsupported by the CyanogenMod team. It's for advanced users only.
 
Important. Prerequisites!!! You need to install Android KitKat on your Open C first (e.g. EU_FFOS+to+Android.zip will do). You also need to have this ClockWorkMod or this TWRP recovery installed.

Important!!! If you’re using my open sourced work as a part of your project, be fair and give proper credits, and contribute back by keeping your project open source as well. I've put countless hours of my spare time into this project and I deserve at least this (I'm not getting paid to do this). Free and open source doesn't mean without respect!

How to install:

  1. boot into ClockWorkMod
  2. backup and restore -> backup (create a nandroid backup of your current ROM)
  3. mounts and storage -> format /system
  4. wipe data and factory reset
  5. install cm-12-xxxxxxxx-KonstaKANG-kis3.zip
  6. install gapps-lp-xxxxxxxx-signed.zip
  7. reboot now
  8. if/when recovery asks to fix root - choose no

 

FAQ:

 

Q: I can't find developer options and performance settings, why?
A: Settings -> About phone -> Click 'Build number' several times

 

Q: I don't have reboot options in power menu, why?
A: Settings -> Developer options -> Advanced reboot
 
Q: I have no root, why? What is that hashtag on my status bar?
A: Settings -> Developer options -> Root access. Root management is now integrated as part of CM's Privacy Guard and you can manage per app permissions under Settings -> Privacy -> Privacy Guard. You'll have a persistent notification in the status bar when you're running an app that uses root permissions.

 

Q: When I'm connected with an USB cable to my computer, I can't see my internal sdcard as a storage, why?

A: I've made an executive decision not to include a mount point for internal sdcard. This is because recent Android versions don't allow setting emulated sdcard as secondary storage. Setting rather small emulated sdcard as a primary storage caused issues with games/apps that want to download large amounts of data to the sdcard. Also partition layout is different on Open C and Kis 3 and internal sdcard is handled differently between device variants.

 

Q: 'OK Google' voice command doesn't work, why? There's no Google Now page on the homescreen, why?
A: These are features of proprietary Google Now Launcher. 'OK Google' voice command is also disabled on low memory devices (you can enable it by removing/commenting/changing to false 'ro.config.low_ram=true' in /system/build.prop).
 
Q: There's only a home button on an Open C. How is this going to work?
A: There's 'hidden' back and menu keys on left and right side of the home button. There's also an option to use software navigation bar instead of the capacitive keys.
 
Q: There's an option to enable auto-brightness but it doesn't work, why? Proximity sensor doesn't work either...
A: Open C doesn't have ambient light/proximity sensor. Some Kis 3 variants on the other hand do, so that's why I've kept the support.
 
Q: How do I enable dual-SIM features on my V811W?
A: Add 'persist.radio.multisim.config=dsds' to /system/build.prop or optionally 'setprop persist.radio.multisim.config dsds' in rooted adb shell/terminal session.
 
 
How to build:
 

1. Follow instructions on initializing a build environment up to a point of downloading the source code.

2. Initialize CyanogenMod 12 repo.

repo init -u git://github.com/CyanogenMod/android.git -b cm-12.0

3. Add local manifest that downloads ZTE Open C / Kis 3 device config, kernel source and proprietary files from my github.

curl --create-dirs -L -o .repo/local_manifests/manifest_zte_kis3.xml -O -L https://raw.github.com/legaCyMod/android_local_manifest/cm-12.0/manifest_zte_kis3.xml

4. Sync source code.

repo sync

5. Apply patches. No patches currently required.

 

6. Compile.

cd path-to/cm12/
. build/envsetup.sh
brunch kis3

Use 'repo sync' to pull merged changes from upstream. Use 'make clobber' to clean the build environment. Repeat step 6 to make a new build.

Full wipe required. Installation instructions in the third post.

Hey, great work! Everything is working great but could you fix lockscreen to set custom background, please?! : ) 

This falls into the category of 'most CyanogenMod features not yet implemented'. I'm quite sure it's not on the top of the list of CM features to port either, so unfortunately you're just going to have to wait.

 

Actually be happy that you have any lockscreen background at all. By default it's nothing but a blank black screen on low RAM Lollipop devices. ;)

Thank You for fast answer! And in your stock version of rom, custom background didn't works too, so could You fix only this? : ) It's best rom for me (4.4.2) because on kitkat 4.4.4 often quits from apps and I can't play games comfortable : /

I haven't made any stock-based ROMs. Or you mean the CAF AOSP build? How can I 'fix' something that is not even supposed to be there (and never will).
 
There's dozens of lockscreen replacement apps available in the Play Store you can use.

not working import contacts from the device

Apps and should run slowly? or it can be fixed?

 
device ZTE Open C

 

Sorry, your post makes hardly any sense.
 
You mean importing SIM contacts? You could try one of the dozens of third party apps available on the Play Store to import SIM contacts. After doing that, it's recommended to upload your contacts to a cloud like everyone else does these days.
 
Nothing is running slow on my device (actually performs slightly better than KitKat) so I doubt there's anything to fix...

I'm sorry.
Really everything works fine
.

 

Thank you very much for this rom!

 

I was happy with everything, but does not work:

import contacts "import from storage"    - сontacts app crashes

Camera: "Settings -> any menu item -> Back"   - camera app crashes

I understand that i can solve by other means, but you did not seek to make a stable version of this ROM? hence it is not necessary to wait for fixes?
 
 
A menu settings "Buttons", "Profiles", "Privacy" - your development, or CM, or from the default Android? I am wondering why they are not translated. (Russian)

You're completely missing the point. Like it says in the first post this is a very early preview and it was released roughly one week after CM12 even started to exist in the first place. All hardware is more or less working on this device and that's all I care about at this point. Not CyanogenMod features/bugs or translations - that's not my responsibility!
 
Because there's no translations on any language for any of the CyanogenMod additions. There's isn't even a community project for CM12 translations yet. Feel free to contribute when that happens though.
 
Patience please, Rome wasn't built in a day either.

Not surprising but thanks for testing anyway.
 
I've seen some CM12 ports to dual-SIM devices appear, but no idea how much local hacking that would require at this point. I'm sure the dual-SIM support will be included eventually.

Is it possible to roll back to original Open-c KK Firmware via CWM after installing your CM12 Build?

Of course. Isn't that exactly what nandroid backups are for (restoring known working system configurations)...

I never heared about nandroid backups before, they are new to me :)

Thanks ;-)

You really should be if you've ever installed a custom ROM to any device before. It's always the first thing you do before flashing anything to your device (make a backup in recovery of a working system configuration).
 
This ROM is still an early preview and just something for advanced users to play around with.
