    Thank you so much for helping with this phone (ZTE Speed). I would usually never buy a phone that couldn't be rooted, but I just needed a backup phone and it was only $20.

    Any eta on getting TWRP out to us?

    ETA? Not yet.. Our guy has been busy racking his brains with CM13/MM for our Warp Syncs. I'm sure he'll hook you guys up when he gets past his stresses. He did say he'd look into it tho. [emoji41]

    Can someone run the following commands on your rooted device and upload the 2 resulting files (parts_byname and parts_mmcblk) which will be created on your /sdcard?

    Using adb shell:
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. adb shell su -C "ls -al /dev/block/bootdevice/by-name > /sdcard/parts_byname"
    3. adb shell "cat /proc/partitions > /sdcard/parts_mmcblk"
    4.  
    Using terminal emulator:
    Code (Text):
    1. cat /proc/partitions > /sdcard/parts_mmcblk
    2. su
    3. ls -al /dev/block/bootdevice/by-name > /sdcard/parts_byname
    4.  
    Thanks

    Isn't the by-name in the kernel & recovery files that were uploaded?

    I don't think so, but now I am confused because they uploaded a TWRP backup. Last I checked you need TWRP to create this backup.

    Anyway, in order to build TWRP, I need the full list of by-name directories and their mmcblk couterparts so I can determine all the partition sizes.

    Oh right, forgot about that :) Still need someone to run those commands and upload the files to build TWRP. It will just take a minute as they will be very small. Fighting with the kernel source right now. Zte has done a wonderful job messing it up again lol

    I would help, but the phone is not in my hand now.
    I will try it over weekend.

    here are what I got from last time I temporally rooted the phone.

    In /dev/block/platform directory, I found 2 folders 7824900.sdhci and 7864900.sdhci.
    In 7824900.sdhci, there are folders by-name and by by-num
    In 7864900.sdhci, there is only folder by-num.

    In /dev/block/platform/7824900.sdhci/by-name , I found out that
    boot -> mmcblk0p23
    recovery -> mmcblk0p24
    system -> mmcblk0p31

    Thanks, but really I just need the partition sizes and those 2 commands I posted will achieve that goal :)

    Currently having a ton of trouble with this kernel. It keeps crashing my machine lol. Go Zte :cool:

    Someone will need to test it when I get it built :p However, it should not brick devices even if it does not work since you don't need recovery to boot to Android. You have the stock recovery.img so it would just be a matter of flashing that from flashify if things go badly.

    Please give this a try

    TWRP-2.8.7.0-speed.img

    Flash with flashify to recovery partition. Keep your stock recovery handy in case you need to restore it.

    I have flashed the img with flashify.
    After reboot the phone, it took very long time stuck on red led, so I long pressed the power button.
    Now, when I press power and volume down together, the phone still goes to factory recovery not twrp recovery.
    Is there anything I missed?
