Gen1 to Gen2 TPT upgrade

952 posts in this topic

Good, this new version should work more reliably. It worked fine for me.

I'll post a new gen2 to gen1 tpt later, but you will be able to use any gen1 tpt that includes all the gen1 .mbn files.

so i managed to get into recovery with the new files wiped all data and flashed the new CM7 but the phone seems to be stuck on the android logo now. how long does this normally take?

It normally takes a couple of minutes, no longer than 10.

Did you flash the latest nightly 41? The older ones & CM 7.0 aren't Gen2 compatible. If it takes longer than 10 minutes, then pull the battery & boot into clockworkmod with vol- when you power on, then wipe & flash again, make sure it's a gen2 rom.

Latest v2 version worked perfectly. Took around 5-10 seconds to update (the screen with the green text), and then it restarted and went straight to Clockwork. Cyanogen installed in a couple of minutes... and all started up fine.

In the words of Elvis, Thank you very much!

I dont think stable works on gen1.

Try nightly 41.

It works now ... CM7 stable doesn't work on Gen2, you want the latest nightly, nightly 41. Install that with clockwork.

That means that a "perfect" CM7 via TPT would be possible:

-automatically upgrades the handy to GEN 2

-N39 (without the GPS crash)

-made GEN 2 compatible from the beginning

-manually exchanged libaudio.so from N40+ (for the SIP routing bug and the muting bug)

-added gapps to the tpt image

You might wan't to try the CM7 universal converter from kallt_kaffe for now. This includes a fix for touchscreen issues, that hasn't made it's way upstream yet.

edit: Just to clarify.. you don't need to convert back or anything, the CM7 universal converter will just replace the original gen2 kernel with another gen2 one that will hopefully fix your issue!

I've updated to Gen 2 using version 1 of the upgrade. Everything works fine except that, instead of the green android at the start of bootup I get some ugly, corrupted graphic at the bottom of the screen. Is there any easy way to get the little green guy back?

Use version 2, it fixes that issue, or flash a new splash image, there's a guide in the themes forum.

How is the partitioning on the v2 image, I assume 136 mb for system and GAPPS, 2mb for Cache, and the rest is data, right?

That's right, just over 300mb left for data.

Can't explain how people had problems with version 1 of the TPT upgrade, it worked for me. Oh well, version 2 is even better :)

@stoke1863, flash kallt_kaffe's converter right after you flash N42, you have one of the new blades with the unresponsive screens.

I thought the CM7 gan1/gen2 converter fixed that issue? A fix should be in CM7 soon, in the next few days, maybe tomorrow in the next nightly (we can hope). The latest Swedish Spring rom should contain that fix & should work on your phone whether it's Gen2 or Gen1.

I'll post a Gen2 to Gen1 TPT in about 2 hours, but if you cant wait you can use this hungarian stock rom - http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...-to-512mb-gen1/ - You'll then need to flash clockwork & a new rom. I'm just going to make a version of that which will boot straight into clockwork, rather than the hungarian rom.

I think it was the missing splash.img more than anything, but maybe the missing mbn files & lack of blank system.img & userdata.img had something to do with it too. Version 2 should work reliably anyway.

Also using HCDRJacob's Gen2 ClockworkMod now, due to complaints about amon-ra, hopefully everyone can be happy with that.

I guess so :)

If it was a software issue then it wouldn't work at all from start up, some of the latest phones need an updated driver.

The touch screen failing is also a common hardware fault on these phones, revert back to your stock rom & get a replacement from whoever you bought it from. Squeezing the top corner, or removing the back cover might provide a temporary fix, but if it does, then it's certainly a hardware fault & it will only get worse.

Best way is wait for my Gen1 TPT then flash that & install your stock rom, either from the nandroid backup you made before you installed your first rom, or from seb's stock rom thread. If you bought an Orange UK San Francisco last September, it's probably the B05 version.

If you bought it from Orange, then it has a 2 year warranty, dial 450 from an Orange PayG phone, or 07973 100 450 from another phone & they'll send a courier with a replacement the next day.
