Smile [ROM] [Kitchen] TMN Silverbelt (ZTE Raise, ZTE-W x60) custom ROM [discontinued]

This topic is about custom ROM for TMN Silverbelt (aka ZTE Raise, aka ZTE x60 and so on).
***For TMN Bluebelt users: please go to Custom ROM for TMN Bluebelt (aka ZTE n61).

Note: project discontinued, phone sold out.

Introduction:
In June, 2010 I received a ZTE-W x60 (general model name - ZTE Raise) handset as a gift. Unfortunately, the system language was Chinese, and my native language - Russian
The only firmware with understandable letters instead of hieroglyphs was from the Portuguese TMN Silverbelt, but it was in Portuguese language, and overloaded by useless TMN's soft.
I had to disassemble the firmware and work on language change and cleaning the garbage. The results will be shown in this topic.

The differences between ZTE-W x60 and TMN Silverbelt:
ZTE-W x60 is differs from TMN Silverbelt by hardware. ZTE-W x60 have 3.2mpx back camera without flash, front camera for videocalls and have no WIFI. TMN Silverbelt have WIFI, 5.0mpx back camera with flash and have no front camera. ZTE-W x60 is made for ChinaUnicom, and Silverbelt - for Portuguese TMN.
More information about the differences can be found in a post dedicated to disassembling the phones.

The differences between WM and Android models of ZTE Raise:
There is 2 hardware lines of ZTE Raise handsets - based on Windows Mobile (ZTE-W x60, TMN Silverbelt) and based on Google Android (ZTE x876). WM models uses MSM7225 CPU, and Android ones uses MSM7227 CPU. Another differences (like touchscreen etc) is almost not matter. But CPU differences kill the possibility to flash WM phones to Android directly. So, do not try to flash your Silverbelt or x60 by firmware from x876.

Notes and Warnings:
1. All surveys were made on the basis of the TMN Silverbelt firmware B08 and ChinaUnicom ZTE-W x60 firmware B02.
2. I accept no responsibility for bricked or locked devices or any other problems! You are use any information and any files at your own risk.
3. Before you flash this ROM, make sure you know how to recover from a non-booting ROM or to original ROM! If your device bricked, you can try to flash it by original flashers (B05 or B08).
4. You MUST read instruction in downloaded packages and post below.
5. I strongly recommend to flash phone with TMN's B08 firmware before using this firmware.
6. After every flashing you MUST perform a hard reset!
7. If you are use the software for backup and recovery, remember that these programs will work properly only within the same firmware. That is, if you phone flashed with another version of the firmware and you try to recover your data, you're may got unexpected behavior of the phone.

Network Unlocking:
This custom firmware network unlocked by default (handset uses ZTE-W x60 radio driver). If you need to use TMN-locked driver, go Start -> Utilites, launch "Raise Control", Select "Phone: use TMN-locked driver" then reboot your handset.
You can unlock your phone completely by enter unlock code for original driver. Use this calculator (download) for generate unlock code, or use this online service: http://nextgenserver.com/calculator/.

About camera autofocus feature of TMN hardware:
Camera loses autofocus feature when regional settings changed. I mean, once you changed regional settings from English (for English firmware) or from Portuguese (for Portuguese firmware) to another location, camera autofocus will not work until you change this settings back. In Russian firmware autofocus not work with any regional settings. But this bug presist in official B08 and B05 firmware. This bug was fixed in my firmwares dated 2011 and later.

Note to ChinaUnicom's ZTE-W x60 owners:
This firmware natively made for TMN Silverbelt hardware. It can be flashed into ChinaUnicom's handset ZTE-W x60 too. In this case you should flash your phone three times: with original TMN firmware B05, than B08, and finally this custom firmware. After booting, go Start -> Utilites, launch "Raise Control", Select "Camera: use ZTE-W x60 driver" then reboot your handset. Other soft that you may need can be found in bottom of this post.

Support:
If you encounter problems, please do not hesitate to write here or contact me. Please describe the problem accurately and in detail.
Note that I can only help with these ROM. For general questions about cooking ROMs, please consult the forum and Wiki at xda-developers.com.
You should know two things: 1. I speak only English (too bad) and Russian. Por favor, nao escreva em Portugues 2. My local timezone is GMT+11.

This firmware is cleaned from any TMN trash, so it have even less than B08 About the difference in language and fixed bugs are not talking, right? In the future, I plan to integrate HTC software, such as Manila. And now to do a clean firmware on which basis it will be possible to build more.

Maybe if you release a 2nd version keeping the PT friendly SYS and OEM, i.e. minimizing the language mods, you could get more PT testers for your ROMs

Don't know if thats so simple as it looks like... but it would be great

B08 is TMN's third official release (B04, B05, B08), AFAIK zte's device drivers improvement are considerable from ROM version to version (camera, GPS reception, G-sensor), I remember IExplorer "auto-rotation" came in ROM B05...

Maybe a clean chinese firmware would do worst than good... I wonder

My two cents, good luck

Chinese firmware is needed ONLY for me. I have ZTE Raise and it differs from TMN Silverbelt by hardware. On MY phone camera does not work with TMN firmware (I have it 3.2mpx) and no WiFi. Naturally, I'm not going to use the Chinese firmware to create firmware for the Portuguese silverbelt.

BTW chinese firmware is mooooore overloaded some **** than TMN

Unfotrunaly, our OEM and XIP can't be rebuild by last Bepe's platformrebuilder. In Bepe's kitchen language changes was very-very simple. Heh...

So... Here it is: http://ifolder.ru/18777918
Lang 816 (Portugues), build 23096 (shipped build).
