Arrow [Was-A-ROM] TeamMaverick's Custom ROM - Info for developers like me

(NOTE to Mods: I know this is now not related to the ROM, but once this was a good thread, until ZTE messed up)
Fellow MediaTek developers alike, ZTE Grand X Pro enthusiasts, and people alike...
I have a message. There will NOT be a ROM released. I've tried everything, got different errors in CWM, bricked devices, and I don't wanna talk about that.
Once this was a very big dream of mine, but then, I was a very big fool. The Grand X Pro, in my outlook, will never get further from a simple, flashable, Stock ROM... But that is also the past, since all copies of it are long gone...
I have to put this in a list of things our device doesn't support:
- Modification for themes
- CyanogenMod porting (No kernel source anyway...)
- Extensive build.prop modding
- Aroma installer
- Literally ANYTHING that is cool about custom ROM's...

Things we can do:
- Change the boot.img
- Change the recovery.img
- Flash the stock ROM from FlashTool
- Create a Nandroid
- Do a factory reset in CWM without bricking the device
- Install TWRP (albeit unusable)
- Install a custom Bootanimation

We have made some progress, but it's not enough for custom ROM development.
I'd like to thank the following fellow XDA members for their support during the actual ROM developement:

- heraSK -- ROM Betatester
- kevinrus123 -- Developing Support
- kozimcfly -- Betatester
- kudzo -- Betatester & fellow developer
- NotShouting -- Helpful resources
- apeelme -- updater-script
- Tonny73 -- Development support
- marijan130 -- Betatester

Anyone that wants to can ask me for my dumped ROM via PM.
Everything else like: "Please restart the ROM developement" will be ignored.
This ROM is now officially dead. We have ZTE to blame for that. They are completely developer-unfriendly and they are breaking Google's main rule about Android: "Android is about freedom"
Where is the freedom in NOT sharing their ROM sources? FFS, we just wanted to port JB, that they, a huge company was too lazy to do.
This thread is not meant to flame on ZTE, just to warn fellow developers...

yay, our first grand x pro rom!

so, I've tried downloading but it says I can't access file. not uploaded yet?

did you made it as an updater? I thought that before flashing new rom we're supposed to wipe everything, not just cache and dalwik cache...?

okay, I have tested it. flashing went fine. first boot took few minutes, but that's normal for deodexed roms.

it booted fine but I got mixed results after it. I have wiped everything I found in CWM: factory reset, cache, dalwik cache, but somehow some of my apps from the stock rom have survived and I'm sure they weren't on the list in aroma. that could be CWM recovery's fault, since there's no option for wiping system. I'll try again with your twrp.

nova launcher was force closing but holo launcher from my stock rom survived so I could use the phone. oh, and you probably don't want to have all systems apps to choose from in aroma. someone might deselect something important. but, then again, we can always select all if not sure...

so much for now, I'll install twrp and try again...
