    ZTE always manage to release stuff when I'm travelling..

    I've only got sucky hotel Wifi at the minute, but I'll do my best to grab it and make a build overnight.

    it does look a bit small, the other kernels are normally 9/10 parts...

    I'm flying back to Calif for the holidays tomorrow, so I'm probably not going to have much time for more experiments, but I'll see what I can do

    Not that I'd know what to do with the source code if I got it, but I'm getting 404 errors on every link on the page in the original post.

    from what i was able to find out, you haveta try building source code with an older toolchain. the 4.4.0 toolchain should work. Found this out browsing google...

    I managed to get a kernel built, no mods or anything, just a stock kernel... just dunno if the zte kernel requires an external ramdisk or should i build the kernel with the ramdisk included... Ima download the b08 update from woodstock and see if i can split the boot.img.. if I can, I can probably make a boot.img for use on the phone...(hopefully) I just dont exactly have a zte warp to test it with yet.......>_>

    Also one of the modules doesn't build correctly because of undefined constants...
    which is the usb networking module... not exactly necessary I dont think, but if i can get the ramdisk from the boot.img in the b08 update, I can probably steal it from there...;-)

    now to figure out how to overclock the processor.....


    Well I managed to extract the ramdisk out of the boot.img from the b08 update, but it lacks the lib folder with all the modules I need....:(

    as proof:


    If someone who's rooted wouldnt mind using rootexplorer or esfile explorer to look in their system files for a lib folder, and copy it to their sdcard and upload it for me, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance guys...:)


    Well, managed to find the lib/modules folder in the system.img.ext4 file in the b08 update. Also, judging by the way it's setup, i can try doing a custom rom with it, then repacking it into the update.. dunno tho, worth a try... also seems like the g_ether.ko is unnecessary as i thought, here's a screenie if ya want to see what im up to...;-)

    Fascinating work man. I only understand probably half of it, but still it is exciting to see some progress. Please keep us posted!

    wish i had a warp to do some testing on, just waiting for this fat check to come in the mail so i can get one... Right now i have been working on the prevail kernel for like 3-4 months and no progress, the zte kernel looks like a better candidate since the source is ok cept for a few modules.

    can I be the guinea pig? I have a zte warp and I want to be part of something as big as this and willing to take risks! Unless it involves bricking ofc and/or is dangerous (but even then I'll see what I can do) :p

    edit: unless you just wanna go ahead and wait for your zte warp to come

    well i wouldnt mind having guinea pigs, but without a zte warp of my own, i wont know for sure if this will brick your units or not, so until i can test myself, and make sure that it works, I wont release it. Too bad the warp isnt like the prevail and could use odin... odin rox.... shouldnt be too long till i get my own zte warp tho, gotta wait a bit for my cash monies to come. as soon as i get it ima test it out.


    Im also trying to port cyanogen to it too.. Im no experienced dev, so it's difficult to say the least considering i dont have a device of my own to test out.

    First of all thanks for what you are trying to do.
    I don't want to put a damper on what you are doing. But, Shouldn't we get the custom recovery working correctly before anything else.

    Thanks for your effort on this. A working custom kernel would be awesome but how would we install it with out a proper custom recovery.

    Im working on that too, since this is gonna be my upgrade from the prevail, figure i should do some work to it before i get it... lmao.. anywho, Im working on a bit of everything for educational purposes for this phone, plus u can flash a custom kernel using fastboot with adb, for example...

    adb.exe fastboot flash boot boot.img for windows, and in linux if u have the android sdk installed, pretty much same process...

    I have a request. In the file init.arthur.rc I would like some edits. It may be a performance upgrade as well. I would like to change the lines in these two screenshots. The second one I think if changed to
    instead of what they are now may get us a better connection.

    The first one you can change to whatever you want and I think that will be displayed instead of Boost mobile. I would like to find out anyways.

    This file should be in boot.img
