TWRP 18.104.22.168 In VIP for the ZTE Avail/Merit....
I've successfully booted pure AOSP on the android emulator as well as one of my dev phones! Meaning our code is workable!
I've laid partial device configurations out for a couple devices, so we can start the true development of our favorite phones.
Hop to it all .

EXTRA EXTRA READ ALL ABOUT IT!
The Federal Communications Commission released an app on Thursday that the agency hopes will help it generate an accurate comparison of wireless carriers' mobile broadband speeds.
The app, dubbed Speed Test App for Android, is designed to collect information about the performance of participating smartphone users' mobile broadband services nationwide. The four major US carriers have agreed to participate.
The app will measure upload and download speeds, latency, and packet loss, as well signal strength and the manufacturer and model of the tested device. After a few months of data collection, the FCC plans to publish an interactive map early next year to help consumers determine whether they are getting the mobile data speeds they expect.
"Knowledge about how various mobile broadband providers compare, at specific locations in a geographic market, will aid them in choosing the provider that best suits their needs," FCC commissioner Mignon Clyburn said in a statement. "Transparent information about service performance does not just enable consumers to select among service offerings in a meaningful way. It also creates incentives for providers to improve those services.
The program will run periodically in the background and is designed to use no more than 100MB of data each month, the FCC said. Automated testing can be disabled, allowing the user to execute manual testing, but the FCC warns this could lead to biased results if testing occurs only at specific times or locations.
The app is available for download at the Google Play store. The FCC said an iPhone version is currently in the works.

Okay guys, due to my job I have not had the time to spend fixing things as much as I needed to. However I'm going to try to spend some time on it over the next couple weeks. So I need to know what problems there are so I can fix them, please reply to this post with any and all problems you have come across on the forums.
Reply Here: Click Me!
A few rules to this:
1. I am talking about technical problems with the website, not your problems with staff, members, your girlfriend or anything else like that.... talk to the other mods and admin about those things.
2. This is also not for problems with roms, apps, installs, uninstalls or anything that involves your phone or tablet unless it is about viewing the site.
3. I don't need to be told about updates for the forum or plugins for it, I know about them and that is one of the top things on my list.
4. Please DO include any new or old features you would like to see added or removed from or to the site.
5. If you have found any broken links or images please let me know, I cant fix them if I don't know about them.
6. I believe Phydeux runs the IRC's, however I can fix things on them too if they need it and he is not around.
Thank You and sorry for the delay on all this,

I'm personally working on setting up a "base" for our developers. I won't say what, but big things are coming for a few more devices.
Keep on trucking everyone and support the cause!

Check Your Spam Box!!!!
Ever sense we moved to our new server our emails seem to be going into peoples spam/junk boxes. If you are waiting for an email from us you may want to check in there. We are currently working on getting this issue resolved, but it can take some time to get on the "white lists" from the email providers.
Sorry for the inconvenience,
