What is FLB-Froyo G2?

It's a ROM based upon the most recent Chinese Froyo ROM for the ZTE Blade with all operator customizations removed and elements from stock Android 2.2.2r1. This is designed to provide the most vanilla Froyo experience for the ZTE Blade along with some speed.

ROM is compatible with all versions of Clockwork recovery. However you are strongly advised to updated recovery to at least ( preferred) if you are planning to use Apps2SD as the partitioning has been fixed in this version. You can get this here: Clockworkmod Recovery

Important: First boot will be slow and the system sluggish due to various system scripts running. Wait for the phone to boot then reboot once. After the second boot the phone will be much better.

Thanks to: Paul O'Brien, DJ Steve, Frankish, jonuwz, danz0l, andorko. If I'm using something you did and I didn't credit you, let me know.

Are all mp3's working perfectly? Or is that a kernal issue that can't be fixed?

So far they seem to work ok.

Update: Woops. Seems that I broke youtube. Just fixed it and uploading an updated zip now.

build.prop has been changed to 48MB which improves performance with the JIT. hardware acceleration allows the GUI to be generated by the GPU rather than the CPU.

As for your data and apps you could use something like Titanium Backup.

do you have to install it via ClockworkMod Recovery ? (so rename the file to: update.zip)

Yo man :rolleyes:

I have to tell you that one of the main reasons for me to switch from the Pulse to the SanFran was your commitment to the MoDaCo community - and here we are, your Froyo ROM is just being downloaded while I'm writing this :huh:


(Will report back as soon as it is installed :huh:)

The other Froyo ROM had a bad influence on the battery life. Any information about the battery life of this ROM ?

Thanks btw, I'm using your ROM's since the Pulse ;-)

i too want to know the same;

- does the dialer still take excessive battery life, and

- has this rom locked up on anyone yet? the current china 2.2 locked up on me twice yesterday - seems like the touchscreen stops responding although everything else works fine.

Wipe Data and Cache before installing

Can someone explain this in a bit more detail please, I'm running Pauls R4 at the moment .

If using ROM Manager - when choosing "Install zip from SD" after selecting the zip it is asked:

- Wnat to backup current ROM

- Wipe data & cache

Select the second options for sure and there you go :rolleyes:

Ok, flashed and now restoring apps with Ti. Great work! Now just have to check market works (Edit: it does :rolleyes:). With regards to the dialer - can we use the ZTE one from the 2.1 ROMs?
