    *****YOUR WARRANTY IS NOW VOID!
    By installing this rom you are accepting any and all responsibility pertaining to bricks, crashes and failure to follow directions! It is YOUR DEVICE! If you are uncomfortable with modifying your phone, LEAVE NOW!*****

    Your phone is about to be AWEsome!

    This is a custom rom I have been working on for a while. It is a WORK-IN-PROGRESS though there shouldn't be too many (if any) bugs. Updates are expected.

    This is basically a stripped stock rom. Anything ZTE related has been removed and replaced with alternatives. Nothing fancy (and I dont plan to make it fancy), just enjoy its speed and reliability.

    • Nexus Boot Animation
    • Rooted
    • Fully Deodexed/Debloated/Zipaligned
    • New O/C Kernel by Spock1104!!
    • Tweaked Settings Menu *DONE-ISH*

    • Cyanogen Calculator (Replaces Stock Calc)
    • Omni Notes
    • Superuser
    • Root Explorer (Replaces Filer)
    • Terminal Emulator
    • Wifi Tether *Fixing*
    Some apps may have updates, even though I tried to add the latest versions.

    Removed:
    • Virgin Mobile Apps
    • ZTE/Firmware Updates (Won't Install Anyway)
    • Stock Browser (Chrome is Default)
    • Google Play Apps (Books, Movies, YouTube, Games)
    • TouchPal/Swype Keyboards (Request to Include?)
    • Live Wallpapers (Request to Include?)

    TO DO:
    • Customize Settings Menu *DONE-ISH*
    • Fix PRL/Profile Updating *DONE*
    • Fix Wifi Tether App (Stated Above)
    • Add Reboot Menu (Stated Above)
    • AOSP Lockscreen (Coming in V2)
    • Other Stuff I Find Useful/Broken (Make Requests, I'll See What I Can Do)

    Instructions:
    • Download Rom *HERE* (Mediafire link, because d-host hates me)
    • Install ClockworkMod Recovery Easy Method Here
    • Reboot to CWM - Volume Down/Power Button (Vol+/- to Navigate, Power to Select)
    • Wipe System/Data/Cache/Dalvik-Cache
    • Install Rom from SDCard

    Indeed it is (thanks cooldudezach). Hence the *WORKING* for all awe phones.

    It is very much stable, however we are still tweaking it a bit so I believe it is considered [Beta]. No worries though, its working great on my personal device and my g/f's, hers having experienced the bootloop problem.

    Apex is actually alot smoother and it doesnt take too much resources. I am trying to get the lockscreen implemented, but its ALOT of work. Ill add it to the list here though. I can put xposed lockscreen in if requested, but id like to keep xposed framework an optional thing

    I'm stuck in a consistent bootloop. I've wiped everything so many times and reflashed the ROM. Same problem: ( not sure how to fix it.

    "Never mind. Got it. ROM is niiiice Thanks again!"

    So what is this? Does it work for you or not?

    This really should be working for everyone. I and the team have tested the kernel extensively and have found no issues. Did you clear the cache and dalvik-cache after flashing the rom?

    Well it worked for about an hour. And now it boots up, goes to the lock screen, and then reboots, and its been doing it for 45 minutes. Sucks cuz I love the ROM.
