Info 2 SDCARD2

After installing this very good ROM without the mod(I only have a 8GB sd and i dont want to loose the extra space) I had problems with some applications because some apps use the unit SDCARD as the external SD but in this ROM SDCARD is the internal space and SDCARD2 is the external SD.

I have done some changes to mount external SD as SDCARD and internal space as SDCARD2.

with root explorer, edit the file /system/etc and open up vold.fstab.

and change the lines

dev_mount sdcard /storage/sdcard0 emmc@fat /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.0 /devices/platform/mtk-msdc.0/mmc_host
dev_mount sdcard2 /storage/sdcard1 auto /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.1 /devices/platform/mtk-msdc.1/mmc_host

by

dev_mount sdcard /storage/sdcard1 emmc@fat /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.0 /devices/platform/mtk-msdc.0/mmc_host
dev_mount sdcard2 /storage/sdcard0 auto /devices/platform/goldfish_mmc.1 /devices/platform/mtk-msdc.1/mmc_host

and reboot

Good news for V987 owners!

It seems that ZTE is going to release an update to Android 4.2.1. There is a beta ROM floating around in some Chinese forums and I am already using it. So far, it seems to work good, but I will wait for the official update from ZTE to release the custom multi-language ROM.

Yeah, hopefully! This Android 4.2.1 ROM seems to be rock-solid for a beta release, so the final should be out real soon.

Default Price dropped

On one Internet shop the price was dropped down to 265 USD. It can help to appear more owners of this excellent device.
On the other hand they pre-install Bruno's custom ROM and advertise it.

Unfortunately, I'll have to live with that. I realize that it is impossible to fight those unscrupulous sellers.

Hi Bruno, I experienced problem when connecting V987 to computer via USB. It only allows connection to "Built-in CD-Rom".
It does not allow me to select USB Storage/ MTP / PTP etc.

Any help?
