I'm quite sure the answer I need could be buried in that other thread, but its too long, not formatted in a way that a human can easily read it (closing the quoted sections would be a start and might help to separate each question from the next), and I just found it really hard to wade through.

So here is my question (or rather...questions)

1) Almost all references to recovery, booting, flashing, etc require the use of a PC. I use a Mac, and I don't want to use a PC if it can be avoided. This leads to my next question.

2) Given that I can't use any of the existing pc programs to get stuff onto the SD card, is there some reason I cant just dump everything on the SD card and run it from there? This leads to my next question..

3) If this is possible, what apps/roms/recovery apps do I need to dump on the card, and what order do I need to "do things" in, and by what method (sorry, three in one...) I have NO idea how to flash anything from the card itself without the intervention of the recovery program.

I became quite used to using ROM Manager on the Desire, so the Racer is defeating me, as there does not seem to be a similar app for the racer. I use z4root for a temp root.

I'd really appreciate any and all assistance.

Thanks for your response :)

OK, thats something, good to know the commands, but I'm not sure what "recovery.img" actually contains. I tried putting recovery manager on the card which was easy enough. However I got an error saying that the file couldnt be parsed when I tried to install it. Recovery manager is a zip, do you just change the extension to .apk? The file manager I use (File Expert) understood that there was an .apk and seemed to try to use that... but failed. I was going to use one of those "mooncake" updates as well but obviously got stopped in my tracks.

go here and download recovery-clockwork-3.0.2.4-mooncake-gen1.img rename it to recovery.img and put it on your sdcard then with terminal type

su

flash_image recovery sdcard/recovery.img

one you have done that make a backup of your default rom then go here

and pick a rom you like download it and the reboot into recovery and flash the new rom

Just a couple of questions from this noob:

1 Under notifications it always says 'SD card mounted (SD card already mounted!)' - Why do I always get this message? Even when I haven't plugged in the USB?

2 Is it possible to get rid of the 3 (Three UK) bloatware on my device? If so how?

Thanks in advance

Tanner

(1) if you flash a froyo rom or a 2.3 rom it will remove the SD card already mounted

(2) go here

Hi folks.

I've recently purchased a ZTE racer of ebay and the person who sold it has left a (very, very funny) video of his kid on it, I've contacted him and he needs this as it wasn't backed up. Problem is I haven't a clue how to send it, the mobile is on 3 and the video is in a video folder that doesn't seem to be on SD card. The video player gives no sending options and long hold on file name does nowt. Please can anyone help?

thanks

Sorry admins thought I'd posted this in the Help section, please move/

Guys I need help. This morning the touch screen on the racer decided to stop responding! Everything was fine the previous evening. Even the alarm clock rang in the morning. I remember turning it off and continuing with my morning routine. Half an hour later I received a phone call. When I wanted to hang up on the touch screen I couldn't. Then I noticed that the touch screen was not responding. First it seemed that its calibration had gone south but later there was no response. I don't think its a broken screen, I think if it can be reset somehow everything will be fine. Feel free to share some ideas. Thanks ahead
