TPT is not blocked, you just have to use a single image.bin, one md5 to check, not several with gen1 TPT

the big issue is the disabled fastboot

Ok, my bad. Thanks for the info. Can you explain a little more ? We can re-enable the Menu + Volume '+' + Power button trick ?

Yes, a full bag of useless craps apps. :)

Anyway, here's the ROM build.prop info:

# begin build properties

# autogenerated by buildinfo.sh

ro.build.id=FRF91

ro.build.display.id=BFR_P729CV1.0.0B02

ro.build.version.incremental=20110426.093718

ro.build.version.sdk=8

ro.build.date.utc=1303781986

ro.build.type=user

ro.build.host=localhost.localdomain

ro.build.tags=release-keys

ro.product.device=blade

ro.product.board=blade

ro.product.cpu.abi=armeabi

ro.product.manufacturer=ZTE

ro.product.locale.region=FR

Don't know if it's could help.

It probably took them that long to make the flasher shiny and nice

By flashing. Anyway, I found a folder here : "C:\Users\MyName\AppData\Local\Temp\P729C_BYTEL_UpgradeTool".

He's empty, but I think temp files are stored here during the flash ?

using a large amount of common sense, I have extracted all the files from the exe. the only files that didn't match an equivalent in another stock 2.2 upgrade were oemsbl.mbn, amss.mbn, boot.img, system.img, and recovery.img.

You can flash the update and look at the files here and see in the md5 table how it lines up with the other upgrades in terms of firmware.

@azyiaa: you can flash this, but you don't have to flash the full firmware - you can wait until someone packs it as a clockwork zip aswell, if you want to avoid flashing the whole kit via windows.

Can I ask if someone with the enough amount knowledge of Android can make a flashable .zip of the french update please ?

I know a little bit about Linux but I'm afraid that could be a little bit to hard for me. :)

Thanks for the instructions. For no doubt, how to properly extract the contain of the .img and witch ones must be extracted ?

Ok, I have extracted my system.img. I just have to replace the boot.img and the system folder in a .zip from another ROM (for example stock ROM from the Stock Rom post ?) right ? Do I have to replace the recovery.img too ?

Sorry for being ignorant, but what's the META-INF folder ? It isn't ROM independant ?

Thanks again.

Yes, replace system folder, boot.img and recovery.img from another stock ROM. Be careful with the recovery.img though, it overwrites your current clockworkmod. META-INF contains zip signature and update scripts. If you want to be on the safe side, you can remove lines from updater-script, that refers to recovery.img. Then you'll atleast have clockwork if something other fails. Or just make sure your /system partition is large enough and remember to wipe, you should be fine then too.
