Temple Run On ARMv6 CPU - T-Mobile Vivacity etc

Hi. I'm sure you are wondering about Temple Run on the T-Mobile Vivacity, San Francisco II and others.

It is not supported because Temple Run will not run on ARMv6 CPU's, but here is a link to Temple Run that does work. 

** Temple Run may lag or glitch, however the 1.0.4 update seems to have corrected this**

To install, place to SD card and install the .apk file. If you cannot find the file, download a file manager to locate the file. Link is here

Hi. For anyone out there who have one of these phones:

  • T-Mobile Vivacity - Perfect
  • Orange San Francisco - Perfect
  • ZTE Blade II **
  • ZTE Crescent **
  • Telenor Touch Plus 
There is hope, and the guys over at MoDaCo and CyanogenMod built an Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0.4) and Jelly Bean (4.1.1) ROM 

* I am writing a blog about this to get this publicised more, I did not contribute much and the awesome developers will be credited for their work*
**Some problems with TPT may/will occur**

Ice Cream Sandwich looks like this:
