[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...
