[Guide] Flashing firmware to Blade/Libra via windows

Posted (edited)

Anyone?

Guys I tried following firmware package in FTM mode custom Gen2 160 v10

But after flashing above package. My phone is always booting into FTM mode. It does not boot into recvery at all.

I am not able to proceed further from following steps

  • Unzip the contents of the firmware package you want to flash. Start the program called “download.exe” in the root folder. When the flasher window comes up, press the start button. If the start button is not clickable, use “driverinstaller.exe” to install ZTE drivers and make sure your phone is connected and in FTM mode.
  • Wait a few minutes for your phone to be flashed. The screen will turn black for a while. Do not interrupt this process. A message will inform you when flashing is complete.
  • Disconnect your phone and remove the battery. Reinsert the battery and turn on the phone (normally, with no buttons pressed). Your phone should boot into clockworkmod recovery.

My phone is always booting into FTM mode now. I even tried other package custom Gen2 215 v10

The phone is seems to be stuck in FTM mode even when I start it normally.

What should I do now?

Anyone?

Hi. i got chinese blade with 512mb ram( it has a label at the back: ASSEMBLED IN CHINA) for full spec here www.whatswithjeff.com/smart-netphone-701-specs-price-philippines/

my blade become a 256mb RAM Blade after a couple of TPT. i just want to ask if its possible to recover the 512mb RAM with all the things are working as usual as the time i have bpught the phone. i mean all i want is to return back the stock GEN2 partition layout with 512mb RAM.

before things happened i just TPTed my blade using a GEN2 V2a from here www.amphoras.co.uk/downloads (no notice not for chinese blade) RIL doesn't work here but gives me 512mb RAM so

i have tried the CHINESE U-V880 GEN2 TPT RIL is working but gives me 256mb RAM which is very much laggy. atleast someone would try to answer.

thanks

AFAIR, part of ram memory works as cache when needed

40 MB of RAM used as cache?

Why on original layout there are 37,5MB of cache without RAM use, and with this cache is a disk+RAM space?

Can anyone confirm this?

Well, I know why this happens... the ROM, in case of <20MB cache partiton, uses /data or tmpfs...

How do I recover my phone from a somewhat permanet brick? I say permanent because it wont boot at all, not even light up the screen or blink the red led, it is just totally dead.. This happened after i tried reflashing stock ROM to my blade which had cm10.

I have a 2 years old Saunalahti unrooted Blade, which was originally Gen1 2.1, then upgraded by OEM (Saunalahti) to Gen2 2.2 functioning without any problems! Unluckily I upgraded to Gen3 ZTE neutral 2.3 and

now it boots normally, but after not using the phone for a while the screen blocks and I cannot unlock the screen, have to reboot again. Also the camera stopped functioning, which I do not care, because not using it anyhow!

Are there any hints to solve this problem?

Now i flashed only 7.0.0 ,and it works , but i dont have the option to configure a Google Account , not even on the Accounts and Sync Menu. I dont even have the Market App (Google Play) .I dont mind on staying with this ROM , but i cant get my contacts againif i cant get my Google Account ...

I would love to have the latest CM Rom for Blade .I dont know wich one is 'cause i havent come here for ages ...

Actually, after flashing...step 7 never shows up i.e the phone boots back into the FTM again. Same problem as the above poster...

"Disconnect your phone and remove the battery. Reinsert the battery and turn on the phone (normally, with no buttons pressed). Your phone should boot into clockworkmod recovery."

Please help. I need Stock GEN3 TPT for Blade with 220 Mb System partition size.

Need to restore original ROM but it's too big for fit in stock 200Mb System TPT. I've found just an old broken link.
