I still have the device, I'm using Win7 primarily, but have an Unbuntu VM that I was going to use to attempt to build a CM10 port for the phone.

Also, I have a fairly decent CPU (AMD Phenom II x6 2.8) so I don't mind doing the build work.

btw.
can u help me?
i have an old device GT-i9008L.it's a custom-made device from GT-i9003.
For now im willing to transplant a custom rom so im making a custom recovery before it.
but i cant let recovery mount SDcard...maybe i dont know how to editor it.

can u help me?only transplant i9003's custom recovery can take it easy.


thanks. sorry for my poor english!

The attached is the official recovery for the ZTE Z995 Overture (code name becky) that was sold in the US, so it's in English, it's also not a flashable zip as it's just the output of the dd command from the shell compressed into a zip file for smaller size.

I'm afraid I'm not able to help much with creating your own custom recovery as I'm not a developer. Perhaps you should create your own thread with more details on your phone.

Your English is actually better than some native English speakers, so keep up the practice and good work!

Hmmmm METdeath, perhaps you could enlighten me (pm) the whereabouts of said recovery and other useful info.

If wanted a custom recovery and ROM on this phone since day 1 . I kinda gave up on any hope for it. Please any information to lead me in the correct direction would be greatly appreciated.
