Hi folks, today came the new update B08 out, but still as android 4.3.

I modified a custom B08 ROM from myzte.cn

ROM is very smooth, good optimized , clean , battery last longer
Pure Google-android experience

What I did:
* Deleted all useless Chinese apps
* changed original email, calendar, calculator app with the original google ones
* changed dpi to 445 , looks better in apps and itīs stable
* default language is set to English , time zone is changed to Europe summer time.
* added Apollo music app / original music app is deleted
* deleted Chinese zte browser and replaced with newest google chrome
* deleted default launcher, added nova launcher
* managed to get location fix via Wi-Fi

What was moded by the Chinese:
* accelerated boot speed (15-16s)
* white circle battery
* better power-saving mode (doesnīt lag so much)
* when you click on the right corner of the display when is the time - you lock the screen
* Off-screen CRT effect
* it shows network speed on status bar
* itīs ROOTED
* optimized touch screen
* added Sony camera imaging engine
* more reboot options in settings
* and other optimizations

What you will need:
1. the great ZTE s291
2. Installed Recovery - tutorial here: s291 ROOT and RECOVERY
3. free space on your sd- card


Install instructions:

1. Put s291-b08_update-0531.zip to root of your SD-card
2. Put google apps also to the root of the card - download: http://goo.im/gapps/gapps-jb-20130813-signed.zip
3. Turn phone off and boot to recovery (hold volume up + power button until it vibrates then hold only the volume up button)
4. Install s291-b08_update-0531.zip as an zip
5. Install google apps
6. Reboot phone
7. Enjoy
