    Figure I would keep everyone updated on the progress I have been making with CM13 for the Zmax.

    After beating my head against the wall trying to get it to boot, I succeeded. It is so unstable that it is utterly unuseable.

    I am going to start borrowing code used for the LG G2 Mini being it uses the same SoC to help this along.

    After I get it stable enough to use I will start rolling out Alpha builds.

    To everyone who offered to help, I have not forgotten. I will be enlisting you as soon as I have it stable.

    As for why it is taking so long.

    1. I am a family man and a father of 3 teens, and I spend as much time as I can with my teenagers being in a few short years they will start college and I may not have the chance to spend time with them. And my middle kid who is a bigger Linux/Android nerd then I am is helping with debugging.

    2. My work schedule has been a utter Nightmare. It will level out soon.

    3. My father has been and out of the hospital. He got a heart stent about a month ago and for some stupid reason he got a infection from it. Since then he has had a coronary artery bypass grafting to remove the stent. He is doing well, but he is my only surviving parent so I am trying to spend time with him when I can.

    So as you can see I have been busy.

    Don't fret, I will be rolling out soon. I will keep you updated.

    Thanks

    I'm so thankful that your keeping our phone alive. Your work is truly appreciated! If I was technical, I would love to help but I'm not. So I'm just waiting patiently and admiring all the progress here. Thanks for the update!

    The phone is quite capable, it has better specs then the 2013 & 2014 Moto G. And being it has 2Gigs of ram, 16 Gigs of onboard storage and you can unofficially have up to 64GB of storage. It's a damn shame ZTE didn't make a official 6.0 ROM.

    When I start rolling out the Betas you can help by reporting issues you may have.

    got a download link, I understand it is not ready for a release, but maybe if you put out what you have so far, others can help with it

    Or if you have already pushed it to github maybe you could share a link to your github profile page. You don't have to do this alone. There are people who can help you fix bugs and build errors.

    I have had to suspend all work on CM13. My life has become so busy between my dad's health and my job. And I truly do not know when I will get enough free time to deal with it. Sorry
