CM10.1 Official Released for Nexus 7 3G, Unofficial for ZTE Blade

cm101

Android 4.2 AOSP development has been pretty widespread. Despite the busy holiday season, developers have found ways to get Android 4.2 AOSP ROMs on devices of every shape and size. Recently, two more devices have been given some Android 4.2 goodness—the ZTE Blade and the Nexus 7 3G.

XDA Senior Member eak1080 has released an official CyanogenMod 10.1 build for the Nexus 7 3G. Given that the Nexus 7 is a Google-controlled device, the CM10.1 build is pretty much complete. All of the main features work, with only a couple of ROM features not working properly. If users want Picasa Sync, there is a fix they’ll need to flash; and the Quick Settings Toggles are a work in progress. Otherwise, the ROM should be . . . READ ON »

Dual Booting Now Possible on the ZTE Blade

zteblade

There are quite a few devices out there that are capable of dual booting. Now it seems that the ZTE Blade has also joined that club thanks to XDA Forum Member android@sam. This project is still at a very early stage, and is currently only compatible with one particular CM9 ROM. However, it demonstrates that dual booting is indeed possible on this device.

The developer plans to extend the project to support as many of the ROMs currently available for the device as possible. In the developer’s own words:

This mod works on the basis of two scripts which are to be executed in the terminal emulator or script manager and a modified boot.img to boot the rom from sdcard instead of NAND.

The process involves quite a few . . . READ ON »

Unofficial CM10 for the ZTE Blade, Galaxy Ace, and Gio

jelly_bean-600x405

It’s always nice to see older and lower spec devices brought up to date and in line with the heavyweights. Those with ARM v6 devices such as the Samsung Galaxy Ace, Galaxy Gio or ZTE Blade, might not have ever expected to see your device running Ice Cream Sandwich, let alone Jelly Bean. That, however, is not how things work here at XDA. There’s always somebody out there who refuses to accept that their device will not run the latest version of Android. Thankfully for the three devices I just mentioned, they were right.

While XDA Senior Member Matt4321 has posted an unofficial version of CM10 by konstaT for the ZTE Blade, XDA Senior Member Maclaw has been doing the same for the Samsung Galaxy Ace and Gi. . . READ ON »

Get TouchWiz and Other Fun Stuff on the ZTE Blade

ZTE Blade

While there are many people who aren’t fans of Samsung’s OEM skin Touchwiz, that doesn’t mean that others wouldn’t enjoy it if they were given the chance to use it. When a device development begins to get a little stagnant, it’s nice to see the opportunity to see a different UI come in and give users an opportunity to flash something new. And now we have some TouchWiz to play with on the ZTE Blade.

With some help from others on the same quest, XDA Senior Member weeo has released TouchWiz for the Blade, and believe it or not, the user response has been positive. Along with TouchWiz, users will also get a number of other modifications to their Blades. Says weeo:

- TOUCHWIZ3.0

Have More Control Over Your Device With Blade Buddy for Android

blade buddy

Well, it seems that the concept of devs and cooks having all the fun tweaking roms has pushed XDA member Charles Darke to develop and release an app that would allow you to tweak various parameters in your Android device. Blade Buddy will enable tons of hidden tricks in your device to speed it up a bit, make your device compatible with a few games that would otherwise not run properly or at all, reduce some of the memory consumption, and thus it may end up allowing you to increase battery life in the process. The app can also help you unlock the network component of your device and also, you can mount the device as read-write, which would grant your file explorer access to the root, thus turning it into a root explorer typ. . .

It Is Finally Here… ZTE Blade Forums Added

ZTE-Blade-2

Due to an overwhelmingly amount of requests, we have decided to include the ZTE Blade forums to our ever growing Android family. The Blade is popular for a very good reason… bang for your buck. This device is comparable spec-wise to most of the other mid range devices like the LG Optimus S. However, the price is what sets it apart from the others. Google it around, you will be surprised, I can guarantee you that. The device sports a rather large screen 3.5 inch and is packed with a fairly good processor and enough on board memory to allow you to run all of your programs with ease.

Development on this device has been underway for some time now and it is quite advanced. So, if you were waiting for this, now is your chance . . . READ ON »
