    U must be rooted but
    Um....Download terminal emulator from play store

    Open it, type "su"
    Accept superuser request
    type" dd if=/dev/block/platform/*/by-name/boot of=/sdcard/boot.img"
    Then upload the file boot.img on your sdcard somewhere and post a link, expect a kernel either tomorrow or in the next few days :p

    Also I need a file at /proc/config.gz
    You can get it by getting ES file manager and goingtothe folder nd copying it to ur sdcard, I need that config file to build kernel correctly

    Now one, thing to keep in mind, ZTE hasn't released any kernel source. (Grrrrrr...) But I see your kernel version is 3.0.8 and I'm compiling with 3.0.21 (sorry but its the closestvworking thing I have to work with cause the other kernel src I have is 3.4 but that's for later to work on...) but I have to back port a lot of things just to get it to compile. But other than that everythings gravy :D

    you guys aren't locked bootloader or anything are you?

    because I have something done, not the source compiled kernel, just one with modifications to stock

    we can change the boot up image. Like I can change it from boost logo to nyan cat that plays when I boot up the phone :D. Does that help answer your question? I'm super noob when it come to this stuff.

    Is this the first thing that shows? Before the animation?

    Yes it shows the android guy first then shows the boost Mobile/carrier animation. The android guy is more green when the phone is booting up though.
