I have seen Index threads on many forums here at XDA-Devs. I find this device needs one, since a lot of posts about it go to a help thread ([THREAD="2832760"][HELP] New ZTE Nubia z7 MAX[/THREAD]) that lacks a comprehensive first post, while others are getting posted to similar sounding but not fully compatible ZTE nubia Z7 Mini threads (like [THREAD="2916106"]this one[/THREAD]).

This is WIPo: If you want something to be added here, post it, and I'll try to keep it updated... :cowboy:

DISCLAIMER: all credit goes to the respective posters (see end of present post); I own nothing and claim nothing (apart where I explicitly state otherwise); as usual, your device warranty is voided merely by reading beyond this point, so close your browser and go away if that's not what you intended...

NOTE: looks like Nubiaforums.com went offline a while back, so all links pointing there are now dead. I'm currently looking for valid replacements.

  • Main specs: Snapdragon 801 SOC MSM8974AC = CPU Krait 400 quadcore 2.5 GHz + Adreno 330 GPU
    5.5", 1080x1920 pixels, ~403ppi density, 160g
    (Note: full specs at http://www.gsmarena.com/zte_nubia_z7_max-6491.php)
  • For an excellent comparison breakdown with other current flagship devices see:
  • Recovery mode is entered by pressing VOL.UP + POWER continuously at startup.
  • Most info concerning the NX505J was first posted to [THREAD="2832760"][HELP] New ZTE Nubia z7 MAX[/THREAD], so check it out.
    (Also, if you understand Italian, a comprehensive list of ROMS, kernels and assorted tools can be found here.)

Hello everyone,

I am looking for somebody to help me learn how to build a rom from source for this device. I am mostly interested in lollipop based ones (AOKP AICP CM12...)

I assume it will involve coding a kernel and ****, please let me know if you can help.
Thank you.
