Information: ZTE Blade ("blade")
Note: Support Status
This device does not support the latest official release of CyanogenMod. This may be due to hardware limitations or simply because development is ongoing. The most recent version supported is based on the gingerbread branch of CyanogenMod.
The ZTE Blade is a touchscreen Android smartphone manufactured by ZTE. The device is manufactured in several variants, differing in aspects such as screen type (AMOLED/TFT), camera (3.2MP or 5.0MP), installed firmware (stock: Android 2.1 or 2.2), and bootloader variant (gen1/gen2). Greek and older Hungarian versions have their available RAM limited to 256MB in software. A custom update is available that makes the full 512MB available. Official CyanogenMod support for the ZTE Blade was added in CyanogenMod 7, although starting with 7.0.2, future builds will be generation 2 only. Watch out for Gen3 versions, its very similar to Gen2, but the radio is not compatible, and does not work with CM7. (Check you version with Blade Checker as Mr. Pigfish will report Gen3 as a Gen2)

Additional Info / Downloads
Files are provided for archival purposes and are not supported by CM. The ZTE Blade comes in three flavors, Generation 1 (Gen1), Generation 2 (Gen2) and Generation 3 (Gen3). Depending on which version of the radio the ZTE Blade has will determine the method that is needed to get it from stock to having CyanogenMod on it.
Notice, Ask Mr Pigfish will not detect Gen3 devices, instead use Blade Checker.
The radio will not work, if installing Gen2 on a Gen3 phone (but the rest works fine).
