[RECOVERY] : ClockworkMod Recovery for ZTE V9 Tablet

31 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

Please find attached *MY* build of the latest version of Koush's ClockworkMod Recovery for the ZTE V9/Light Tablet. It is not officially supported by Koush, please do not bother him with support questions for this build.

I have tested it as much as I can, but I'm always open to any more constructive feedback. Please see one post down for a change log for THIS build. Koush seems not to publish a change log (unless you know of one).

To install:

  • Recovery Manager
      Download the img file to your SD card, and then you can use the Recovery Manager application to install your recovery.

    • fastboot method
      • Unplug the USB cable, turn off your device and take out the battery
      • Replace the battery and turn the device on holding the 'volume up' key. The device will stay at the 'green android' screen.
      • Plug the device into the PC.
      • From a command prompt run 'fastboot flash recovery <filename>.img'
      • When this finishes, from the command prompt run 'fastboot reboot'

      • update.zip method
          If you have a previous version or another recovery install, install the update.zip and restart your device.

          • restart your device holding down the 'volume down' key
          • Use the Recovery Manager application to Reboot into Recovery
          • if you have ADB configured type 'adb reboot recovery' from the command line.
              The Latest version of Clockworkmod Recovery can found here

              • Older versions of Clockwork recovery can be found here.
              • Official release

                  [*]The offical version of ClockworkMod Recovery if available for this device can be found here

                  Which version:

                    [*]ClockworkMod Recovery now comes in 2 different versions for 1st and 2nd Generation devices, if your device originaly shipped with Android 2.1, it will usually be 1st generation, if it came with 2.2 it will usually be 2nd generation. Please note if you have used an officaly updater on a 1st generation device it will now be a 2nd generation device.

                    Warning:

                      [*]Support for the old style update files that use the Amend scripting (update-script) method is no longer supported With ClockworkMod Recovery from v3 onwards, if you require support for the Amend scripting method, use v2.5.1.8.

                      Source

                        [*]The Device Config to build ClockworkMod Recovery as part of CyanogenMod can be found on my GitHub.

                        Kernel Information

                          [*]Information about the Kernel used in this ROM can be found on this thread.

Thank you.

If you have a device thats the same as one of the 3 stock roms we've found so far, you can install that and it will overwrite the recovery with the stock one.... if you have a different model then you should use romdump and pm me a link to resulting file so I can create your a stock recovery

That unfortunately seems to be something that ZTE have removed from the gen2 devices across the board, I'm still trying to get hold on a gen2 device to see what I can find out.

ok im really annoyed and confused at this point.....

this is whats happening. i have optus mytab edition of the v9 light. 2.2 went on fine. no problems there.

but it refuses to root properly. i tryed z4root which worked when it did a temp root but when it did a perminent root it installed the stuff but they didnt actually function and androot just fails. however through the temp z4root i managed to install the gen2 recovery which DOES boot instead of the FTM when i vol down +power but the volume keys DONT work so its pointless.

also now i have the recovery installed i dont need the recovery-clockwork-3.0.2.4-v9-gen2-update_signed version of the file at all do i thats only for when you already have CWM installed yes?

am i just an idiot and have done something wrong?

No branding. ZTE Light.

This unit is beeing sold in sweden for 165 USD or 99 GBP unbranded and unlocked so its becoming quite popular over here.

This is just a wild guess, but try this https://market.android.com/details?id=com.a...e=search_result . It's for the ZTE Blade, but they are very similar.

Well.. i used the gen2-files.

I cant get into recovery in any other way but using "Recovery Manager". Holding vol down and booting just shows the white ZTE-screen, no boot. Holding vol up just boots the phone.

Posted this in the Recovery Manager thread but I'll put it here as well.

Got it working on a stock My Tab upgrade to 2.2. At first it fc when I clicked 'Install Recovery', then I installed Rom Manager and did a fix permissions, reboot. Copied the gen 2 img version to sdcard and it worked!

WOOHOO!

Now to try a new rom..... :unsure:

Cheers Sebastien404!!!

Guys.

Is there anything to bring the stock recovery back without having to flash the whole thing back to stock?

I believe i've seen this somewhere but can't remember where now :-(

Sorry I did'nt see this sooner, I'm starting to get too many theads to follow, and the email notification thing on here seems to of gone a bit flakey since the upgrade.. or at least for me...

I have grabbed both my V9 and U8160, the v9 was running 4.0.1.0 for some reason, but they both did work for me...

I've attached a screenshot from my smart...

Do you have a recovery.log file from the /cache dir.. that would be one way to see if I can tell whats going on.....

If I select fix permissions it just says done instantaneously which made me suspicious so I checked the log which I've posted below.

im going to guess that is why.. can you do me a favour and test it without the sdcard in?

I'll see if I can find a spare SDcard and see if I can reproduce the problem and fix the fix-permisions.sh script...
