    So I have the ZTE Warp (N860). Of course I have all the freeze problems, auto re-start. The usual. Main thing that Drives me INSANE is that the best games in Google Play are "not supported" by my device. I have tried to Use that Bluecakes thing, but that was a headache full of spyware and adware.So I've been sneaking around the forums for abotu 3 weeks. I have the whole Root thing figured out, I downloaded the EasyRootTWRP.zip. I think I would like to get ahold of the new Jellybean 4 (][BETA][4.1.2][Team Osiris] ).I am pretty sure I'd want to get a new Kernel as well... I was thinking of this one.. Glitch Non OC v1.13 2.6.35.7 kernel Over locked to 1.7ghz. Would I also need to do a RAM swap? And after all of that, I now ask.. are those compatible together? Will doing these things even change my Ability to download and play the games I want from the Google Play Store. Any guidance would be Much appreciated! THank you ahead of time!.
    P.s. Android Version 2.3.5, Baseband Version N860B01, Kernel Version 2.6.35.7-perf+ zte-kernel@Zdroid-SMT

    If you want the new Osiris Rom, go into that post and follow Lil's flashing Instructions.(TO THE LETTER!!!!)
    Be sure to download the APN flash, and the right gapps package.
    Flash all 3 at once.
    DO NOT flash another kernel on top of that, it's already built in to the rom.
    You may not have too much luck with playing games with this rom, some might work, some probably wont.
    If you're looking for a gaming rom, you may want to flash one of Skinny's Halo roms, or Mercs OEM rom, and so on.
    Be careful what you do, and if you have a stable rom running now, be sure to make a back up first. Try Online Nandroid Backup, and Nandroid Manager. ( ONB is a lil faster at backing up, than going thru TWRP).
    Be careful, and have fun! :)

    Couldn't have said it better. :)



    Games which rely on software components found only in the newer Android versions, but yet aren't too hardware intensive, should run well with the Jellybean ROM. In no way is that a reflection of the ROM or its designers - that's just how these things work. Other games, on the other hand, which not only need Jellybean software components but also need the more robust hardware which is usually found in devices which got a native version of Jellybean may stutter and pause, as the Warp isn't exactly a powerhouse when it comes to processing muscle.

    Check out the ROM Bible. It's incomplete, but the info over which rom might be right for you is almost all in there.

    Just wondering but, what if you change the lcd density and follow through with the playstore reboot? Would that allow you to play all the games?
