It was already discussed, ZTE not released the software yet, and the software comes out this wednesday!

Also, you can't upgrade to it at home as it contains such parts of the software what can not be applied without the matching hardware!

Hmm, does this mean a 3rd version of the firmware is coming? or is this the 2nd one we already have?

Does it mean that this upgrade requires some ZTE upgrade hardware that T-mobile might have?

Yep, I guess so. I got info from ZTE that there is a pre-bootloader stuff what needs to be overwritten to handle all the 512MB RAM, and that can be only flashed by a special hardware I guess (nor recovery neither fastboot has access to this partition AFAIK).

Nope, it isn't froyo yet, it is a bugfix!

If it does not need spec hardware (or if it needs, I don't mind), I will ask the T guys for the software installer itself :(

Your getting your device back this week?

can you (or anyone else who has a HUNGARIAN ZTE Blade) do a 'cat /proc/mtd' and post the results here

I'm just wondering, since the softbank device has a totaly different partition layout, maybe the hungarian one does too...

maybe the hungarian language got so many extra strange characters with umlauts all over the place... it needs more storage space :(

Not so many ;)

Hungarian special accented characters are á, é, í, ó ö, ő, ú, ü, ű, that's all ;)

Not an easy language, anyways

Would be nice to see a real RS232 adapter that can write to the parts of the phone flash partition that even linux does not see, but then again, it need a serial port enabled kernel or not?

Got the firmware upgrade to my phone, but not the firmware itself :S

So does your phone "see" the 512MB RAM now?

What about simply dumping the fixed ROM ?

The prebootloader, what fixes the RAM problem, can not be dumped, as Linux does not see that area. That's why I am still looking for the files.

I got new firmware, what's boot fixed the gradient problem (you got that boot.img too, 2.5.1.8 recovery is based on that), and also the prebootloader too. Build (bulid? :() number is B03!

Yeah, but somewhere i read you could use the RS232 pins beetween the SD and SIM card slot to hack the phone further.

It surely has some low level bootloader like U-Boot or something similar.

Debrecen, Gambrinus köz-i T központ, szervíz. Leviszed, mondod hogy szoftverfrissítést kérek mert csak 256MB RAMot lát, és megcsinálják. És lehetőleg kérd el a ZIPet D:
