    I would imagine it's also due to a bad flash. Also make sure you downloaded the rom over WiFi, not mobile data. Wipe everything then reflash. Everything should work just fine.

    if its a bad flash flashing the backup would just carry over the problem, you should do a fresh install.

    If by internet you mean the ROM was downloaded by PC or over WiFi the ROM should be fine to just use the original download if you downloaded the ROM on your phone via 3G on your phone itself you will need to redownload it and then wipe everything prior to flashing the fresh download.

    Gave my warp to a good friend with this rom on it. She loves it!! I am up at the S4 forums now, jumped ship, carrier and all. I'm with T-Mo.
    Almost the same plan, better phones. Thanks everyone, been a great ride down here!!

    I've been using Next Browser, and it seems to be decent thus far.



    The original background image was removed and replaced by the one you see out-of-the-box. You can still set one of your own choosing, however.

    You guys still working on this? I have finally upgraded, got an s3 on metro-pcs. After much gnashing of teeth, managed to get cm11 installed (has the 4.3 ota installed). So, wifi hot-spotting works. That was the last thing I was holding on to my warp for.

    So, I have a warp for sale cheap. I'll miss the little work horse. It has warp-oem installed, along with smart launcher. I have the extended battery & back, plus the original batt & back. The extended back has a couple minor cracks from flexing it. the screen is in pretty good shape. the body has a few nicks here & there.

    Just make an offer...

    Sounds good, I'll keep you in mind. Can I get a ballpark price of what you're looking to get? IIRC the most recent Warp I bought off eBay was around $50.

    Check again... I've seen used ones for under $30 recently. Even for the Sequent. I have a cracked screen and was going to fix it, but they wanted almost the same price ($25) for the screen/digitizer as I can get a used WARP.....

    Just rooted my brothers ZTE. using TWRP recovery on it.
    can a newer version of TWRP be used or is the one that comes in the zip file sufficient? i know its old

    Is there a preferred governor and settings?

    Wow... it's been a long time since this ROM launched. I began typing this with intentions of officially retiring it, however (as always) I want to know what you guys think. Should I make one final update? Said update would consist of newer ad blocking, the latest app versions and maybe a couple minor graphical touch-ups, but nothing really substantial overall - just enough to hopefully prevent someone downloading it nowadays from having quite as massive an update storm upon first-run.

    So... whatcha all think? Yay? Nay?

    I'll wait awhile and see what happens here before proceeding. If everyone has moved on and nobody cares about this anymore, I'll close it and nobody need look back.

    I still check back here at least once a week. I would love to see something new to play with. I still have my warp(and about 5 other android phones. lol. Phone horder) and use it for various things around the house. I dont know if my 1 vote count but I say, "yes". Thanks for all your hard work.

    Every vote counts :) I still use my Warp as a daily driver, and have a few extra ones laying around... along with a Moto G and a Motorola I1 in my drawer lol

    I am looking for a new phone and the ZMax is looking tempting, but sadly there's no root for it yet :(

    Who knows? There may be another of my xOEM ROMs on another platform in the future. :)

    But, I ramble on here. Sorry about that! Much thanks your input.
