Default SLIM-ROM B08 - ZTE Grand SII (S291)

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

Calculator and calendar app:





85 apps in system/app

Hi,
every android rom is multilingual you need only to download morelocale2 fro play store , and have a rooted phone.
You can choose every language you want.

Hello.

Thanks op for the rom.

Don't have the phone yet, but I am very interested in it.

I see everything regarding this phone is placed in Android general. Doesn't it have its own place in XDA?

May ask current owners their experience so far with it?

Feel free to send me a pm, so not to clutter this thread.

thanks
