ZTE Source (N9511)
Thursday 12th of December 2013
Those of you who own the N9511, take a look at the XDA thread! for the phone! We have a preliminary CWM build, thanks to Junkie2100, but it's not 100% yet. We also have root, thanks to Krsmqn. I've also managed to pull our partition table, identify how to obtain FTM and recovery modes, and how to make ADB and fastboot work.The problem is that we have no one working on a ROM yet. I dd'd the boot and recovery images, and used an online nandroid backup app to pull a .tar of the system image. They're available on the thread. We also hope to have a CWM backup of the full, stock w/root system soon. We've submitted a request for our own thread on here, through Junkie2100, and should have something set up soon. Until then, here's the images I have, maybe you folks can have a look and mess with them for awhile?system.ext4.img boot.imgrecovery.imgIf you have any questions feel free to PM me here, or come over to the XDA thread and see what's happening for yourselves. We really need some talented Dev's, and I'm sure we can raise some cash if we need to.

Cricket ZTE Source (N9511) on StraightTalk?
Wednesday 26th of February 2014
I have a brand new Cricket branded ZTE Source, but Cricket service isn't available where I live. My StraightTalk ZTE Avail, which had become much more useful thanks to info on these forums, took a bath. Now I'm back to a stupid old iphone.Anyway, to get to the point... is it possible for me to use the Source on StraightTalk, preferably their AT&T network, as it seems to work better around here?I was under the impression Cricket phones were CDMA, and therefore had no SIM card. This one has a microsim. The ST website says it will work with their SIM, but the lady I spoke with on the phone said it wasn't compatible.On a slightly-related note, the phone currently reboots endlessly with the original SIM installed, but works fine with no SIM. I don't have any other microsims to try. Do you suppose I got a bad SIM or a bad phone?
