DISCONTINUED.

DISCLAIMER:
Rooting your phone and using custom Recoveries and ROMS have risks and may result in bricking your device, and has nothing to do with Google or the device manufacturers. In case of any mishap I am not responsible if you brick/ruin your phone in any way.
Basic computer skills are required and minimal knowledges about phones and phones utilities too.
Make sure that whatever you do, you are doing it at your own responsibility.


Max Blue is a port ROM from Amoi N850 stock.

Update 12.02.2014 INFO

- changed the based ROM to Amoi N850, much better than previous
- beautiful theme, cool look
- fast, smooth, stable (FSS)
- everything optimized: deodexed, init.d support, zipaligned, etc.
For first boot you have to be patient, because the ROM is deodexed and that cause a longer boot than a stock ROM.
* I worked for this since last december and if you see a bump in version is because I didn't share all intermediate builds, which wasn't that good to share.
You can see some screenshots in SCREENSHOTS SECTION.
First release 28.11.2013 INFO

- various fixes: screen colors and depth, GPS (new fix), network, tethering, sounds, callerID matching, and some others.
- fixed computer connection as USB Mass storage in any windows (no ZTE drivers needed).
- optimizations for ram, kernel, cache.
- speed and smoothness.
- some UI improvements.
- possibility to use 3G in both SIMs.
- dual call buttons.
- for GPS all needed files are included.
- rooted with koush's superuser app.
- all apps necessary added (like mobile uncle).
- for adblocker, the hosts file is properly configurated.
You can see some screenshots in SCREENSHOTS SECTION.


Gapps are included essential, and if you want all suite just flash "Gapps to complete zip".


INSTALL INSTRUCTION:

To flash a new ROM properly, you need one of my recoveries (for these I'm sure they works).
1. Reboot to recovery.
2. Do a nandroid backup or backup in cwm.
3. mount USB Mass Storage and delete from sdcard these three directories:
  • .android_secure
  • Android
  • LOSTDIR
4. Copy ROM zip or zips on sdcard
5. Eject mass storage from computer and then unmount in recovery
6. wipe all/factory reset or pre-flash wipe in recovery
7. wipe or erase dalvik cache
8. flash zip from sdcard, choose ROM zip, flash it and reboot, or if you flash my ROM version 3.3, the phone will reboot itself.
That's all, this is the correct way to flash any new ROM in any phone thru recovery.


QUICK GPS FIX:

If you want to quick fix gps, do all steps from this post, without downloading MobileUncle - is already installed in ROM.
For downloads check post #3.

Carliv, When do you sleep?.
I am not going to sleep tonight because of your new ROM.
My Phone starts trembling when I take it, because he knows that his ROM is going to be changed again!
Thank you, Thank you and Thank you.

Thank carliv, that is again a very nice addon...

It looked very promising, especially functional lock screen. However I've found the following issues:
  • The play icon in the app/widget drawer is inactive
  • The dialer is not capable of Smart Dialing.
  • The dialer does not support lower DPI properly
    • Keyboard is shifted to the left. Max Inception works much better here
    • The colored arrows in the call-log are no-longer clickable. But this is the case in any MAX rom I've tested.

Attached screens with 160 dpi, to exaggerate the problems a bit.

I guess I have to make a video to show you that none of these are manifesting in my phone, except smart-dialer problem, which is inherited from ported ROM.
I don't know how you get those problems, but the attached images look like you have a different phone, not ZTE V967S.
The phone from what I used the ROM to port has same specifications: 540x960 res and 240 dpi.

I am just reporting the issues I observe - and I have v967s for sure
I prefer to use 220 or 200 dpi, as it utilizes the screen estate more efficiently.

No, you report problems created by yourself. If you apply special settings, then you have to make your own ROM, something that suits you. What I did is for a regular user, who wants just a good ROM. So, probably my ROMs are not for you. Sorry.

I agree with you Carliv. I have installed this ROM, I installl all the ROMs that you build (you know I am a flashmaniac) and until now I haven't discovered any fault. Of course I use 240 dpi, which is the most suitable for our phone. Thank you

Don't get it as an attack on yourself, I did not mean it that way... I find your hard work amazing and impossible to overrate. There are a few things I would have done differently, but as long as I don't publish my work for free, I don't really have right to criticize

What I wanted to show is that in MAX Inception 1.4 the phone application behaved well and scaled properly (like a well written applications should do) to the dpi settings. MAX Blue, MAX Inception 1.6, MAX Flavour 4.1 - they all seem to share the same phone application problem.

BTW. ZTE v967s has exactly 220dpi of screen density (960x540 @ 5"). 240dpi would be perfect, if the resolution was 1024x576 at 5"...
