CyanogenMod 6 [Stable] For Z71 Variants

CyanogenMod 6

List of Z71 variants :
Orange Boston, Gsmart G1305, XT502, Apanda A60, Vibo A688, Excalibur, A1, A88, Z71, Blaze, Journey, F911

Off We GO

1)Root the phone with UniversalAndroot. (You can google it or click here http://www.filefacto…1.6.2-beta5.apk)

2) Install RomManager[Free] from android Market.

3)Open the Rom Manager and click on “Flash ClockworkMod Recovery” –> Select “Commtiva Z71” phone (compatible with Boston and clones) [Important Step ]

4)Then Backup your original ROM (scroll down to see the back up rom option). The ROM will be backed up on the SD card. Save a copy of it elsewhere safely in your PC.

I suggest to go thru this site http://www.androidpo…backup-restore/

5)Download the following files from the respective links (courtesy: http://boston-mania.blogspot.com)
ROM (2.2) –> update-cm-6.1.2-Z71-signed.zip (http://www.filefacto…-Z71-signed.zip)
Google Apps –> gapps-mdpi-20101220-signed.zip (http://www.filefacto…1220-signed.zip)
Camera Patch –> Patch_Cam_CM-6.1.2-Z71.zip (http://www.filefacto…M-6.1.2-Z71.zip)

Copy these files to the root directory of the sd card (do not make any folders).

6)(FLASHING ROM) Open RomManager and click “Install ROM from SD card”
Select “update-cm-6.1.2-Z71-signed.zip”
tick for Backup existing Rom and Wipe Data and Cache [ Super Important]
Click ok to Reboot and install
The flashing process should take 5-10 minutes installing everything and then 10-20 minutes during the first boot. Please be patient during this process.

7)After the phone boots you will see new ROM (froyo). There will be no market app (no need to panic).
Now open RomManager and click “Install ROM from SD card”
select “gapps-mdpi-20101220-signed.zip”
tick only for “Wipe Data and Cache”
Ok to reboot and install

8)After phone reboots the setup process starts (as if the phone was started for the first time).
Complete the setup process and after that you’ll see the market app and other apps.

9)Now again open RomManager and click “Install ROM from SD card”
select “Patch_Cam_CM-6.1.2-Z71.zip”
Tick only for “Wipe Data and Cache” (i think no need to tick it also, because if you tick it, after the phone reboots the setup process repeats once again)
Ok to reboot and install

10) Voila! *Your Phone* with Froyo (2.2)

PS: I advice friends to go through the following sites before starting this process:
