    If somebody who has this device could get me these files off the device, zip them up, and send them to me, that would be great.

    Make sure your device is rooted, and you have enabled USB Debugging on your device.
    You should be able to root the device using framaroot, until I get CWM ported to the device. In framaroot, the option to root should be aragorn. It will stall, and/or look like nothing happened, just reboot the device and your good to go. You may need to install Superuser.apk from Google Play.


    you can either use terminal emulater on your device, or you can use adb shell from your computer.
    Code (Text):

    2. su
    3. mkdir stuffs
    4. cat /proc/config.gz > /sdcard/stuffs
    5. cat /dev/block/mmcblk0p15 > /sdcard/stuffs/boot.img
    6. cat /dev/block/mmcblk0p16 > /sdcard/stuffs/recovery.img
    7. cat /proc/mounts > /sdcard/stuffs/mounts.txt
    8. ls -la /dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/ > /sdcard/stuffs/partitions.txt

    Thanks! As soon as I get these files, I should have an overclocked kernel and CWM built within a few days. :)

    Not a problem. :)

    I've been trying to keep an eye on our zte sister phones, and saw there was already a forum for this one.

    This phone is semi-identical to a small group of other zte devices. The ones currently in development: Awe, Source, Warp4g, and now this one. :D

    Alright, here is a kernel I would like you to test.
    Until I get CWM, you'll need to flash this manually to the boot partition.
    If you want to wait until I get CWM, that's up to you. Probably a good idea, but here's this anyway. :)

    Dev-Host - boot.img - The Ultimate Free File Hosting / File Sharing Service

    Here is the instructions if you need them.
    Code (Text):
    1. dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p15
    2. dd if=/sdcard/boot.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p15
    It's not overclocked, but it's built from the codebase we're using now. The only thing I really need to know works is the wifi. That's been the biggest issue we've run into.

    dang. was afraid of that. The overclocked kernel will have to wait for now, but I can upload the cwm when I get home from work tonight.
    edit: I'm going to try something else, otherwise kernel will really have to wait.

    Alright, I have four links for you to test out.

    CWM 6.0.4.5 (It's actually PhilZ Advanced Recovery 6 :D )
    This is a flashable zip to install in CWM.
    Dev-Host - apollo-philz-test.zip - The Ultimate Free File Hosting / File Sharing Service

    Exact version as above, but not installable in CWM. Use either "dd" or "fastboot boot"
    Dev-Host - recovery.img - The Ultimate Free File Hosting / File Sharing Service

    Stock kernel zip - can install in CWM
    Dev-Host - apollo-kernel-test.zip - The Ultimate Free File Hosting / File Sharing Service

    Stock kernel - must use either "dd" or "fastboot boot"
    Dev-Host - boot.img - The Ultimate Free File Hosting / File Sharing Service


    Notes:
    CWM may have funky graphics, such as the screen jumps back and forth when you navigate the menus.
    CWM should be able to access the internal sd card as well as the external sd card, but the USB Mass Storage option is not going to work. (if it does, tell me!)
    CWM should be able to backup everything properly.
    Stock kernel may not have wifi still. If not, its a problem me and rbheromax need to work through, or get the official kernel source from ZTE. (if you could request it and the source for the ATT Z998, and the ZTE Overture, that would be fantastic!)

    Neither of these are tested, since I don't have the device. Traverse at your own risk. :)

    Recovery works so far as I can tell, the graphics aren't wonky, the up and down buttons are backwards but that's no problem. Mass storage doesn't work as far as I can tell, like you said. The wifi is still not working and I wish I could help you with the kernel source but I just bought this thing off CL so it isn't hooked to the carrier. I actually use virgin on another phone because US Cellular is crap in my neck of the woods.

    If someone uploads a cwm backup, I will make some stock roms to get you guys started. I only need system.ext4.tar.a and boot.img. Please be sure the backup is from pure stock...with the exception of root of course :)

    Bummer, I already changed the launcher and got rid of a bunch of crap I didn't want before I thought to back anything up

    Dang that sucks. SuperR has been doing great work at the stock roms. :D

    I will have a new batch of stuff to test shortly. I partially fixed the mount usb storage, so still working on that. need to fix the volume buttons. and then the wifi issue is still boggling.

    I've got a stock N9101 in service that I wouldn't mind torturing if you still need any help. If it gets bricked and we end up with a working rom, its a small sacrifice. After all, it was only a penny right? :)

    If you install the cwm posted above, make a backup, and grab the files I mentioned above, I will make you a stock rom.

    just thought I'd throw my 2 cents in Docwebster.

    On the imperial as you know, it is a dual cpu (1.18 Gz) ... but only 1 is actually active, and it's down clocked to manual granny gear (384 Mhz.) :D

    Guess they don't have cars in china, but ponies. :p But hey! I like ponies too. :)

    I used an app called system tuner (pro) to go to the cpu tweak and maxed it out for the winter. Cpu temps mainly run between 47 and 54 degrees far.

    I would definately be interested in a modded rom that would make the speed controllable by user. :D

    If somebody could get me the results of "cat /proc/partitions > /sdcard/partsizes.txt" that would be fabulous

    Edit: Also, I need a few partitions from the device, if somebody is willing to get them for me :)
