This topic is about custom ROM for TMN Bluebelt (aka ZTE n61).
***For TMN Bluebelt2 (ZTE n72 and n75) owners: please, read notes below.

Note: project discontinued, phone sold out.

Introduction:
After completion of the custom firmware for TMN Silverbelt I decided to start work with the firmware for TMN Bluebelt (aka ZTE n61). Especially since I have long been interested in phone with landscape mode and QWERTY keypad.

Notes and Warnings:
1. All surveys were made on the basis of the TMN Bluebelt firmware B13 and TMN Bluebelt2 firmware B06. In fact, it more from Bluebelt2 B06 then from Bluebelt B13
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 are 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 flasher B13.
4. You MUST read instruction in downloaded packages and post below.
5. I strongly recommend to flash phone with TMN's B13 firmware before using this firmware.
6. Also I recommend (but it still optional) to use custom firmware with new radio software from Bluebelt2.
7. After every ROM flashing you MUST perform a hard reset (see instruction in downloaded package)!
8. 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.
9. There are swapped keyboard buttons: "Wireless Manager" and "Shift" like at Bluebelt II.

Notes to Bluebelt II, ZTE n72 and n75 owners:
1. This firmware made for Bluebelt handset, not for Bluebelt II or another handsets.
2. This firmware was NEVER tested with Bluebelt II or another handsets.
3. But this firmware should work with Bluebelt II (camera will not work and not all RAM will available). If you want to use these ROMs with Bluebelt II, please, flash your handset with TMN Bluebelt II firmware B06 before using these ROMs.

Network Unlocking:
If your phone network-locked, you can unlock it by enter unlock code. Use this calculator for generate unlock code, or use this online service: http://nextgenserver.com/calculator/.

Support:
If you encounter problems, please do not hesitate to write here or contact me. Please describe the problem accurately and in detail.
Also, please, read this post and posts below BEFORE write your message.
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.

Hi,
I will update my bluebelt 1 with your clean wm 6.1 rom, if i find any bug or something i'll feedback to you

The clean rom to the WM 6.5 that you're creating will work on the bluebelt 1? Or only in bluebelt 2?

Thank you very much for all work that you're doing!

Since I have only BB1, the target for my ROMs is BB1. And I make ROM for it only because I can test it only on BB1. So, my ROM will work on BB1.

BTW, maybe ROM will work on BB2 too (except camera and full RAM).

Ok, i hadn't noticed that you only have the bluebelt 1.

I will try to upgrade my bb 1 with your clean version of WM 6.1.
When do you think you can release the download links for the WM 6.5 clean rom? When you do it i can upgrade and give some feedback to you!

EDIT:
I've done the upgrade to your WM 6.1 clean, for now it looks pretty cool
Theres just one thing that i want to remove, when i turn on my bb1, the TMN logo still appears, do you know how to remove it from the startup?

This logo is a part of bootloader (appsboot.mbn file). Now I have no expirience with changing this logo. And I afraid to touch bootloader because I have experience with bricking Silverbelt

Ok, it's better keep it then

Well i've been playing with my updated bb1, and i just have good things to say:
- the camera is really much better
- and the touchscreen works more fluently
- i will try the gps later

In general, you've done a really nice work, my bb1 is now much faster.

Do you know when you'll release the WM 6.5 clean rom? I'm anxious to try it!

EDIT:
Well, did you changed the sms/mms system? The old system was showing my sms/mms in a "bubble system" from the same person now the sms/mms appear separated. Do you know how can i put it like the old one?
Before, sms received/sent was showing in the same window for each contact

Well i don't know how but i've fixed my problem

This is "threaded sms" feature. I always disable it (I think it is ****). But you can enable it by using "Bluebelt control" from Control Panel.
