[Guide] FastBoot Recovery For Racer

59 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hello, So many people of late have been posting in already created threads saying "my recovery is gone" or "i installed a ROM and now my recovery wont work" which sends threads off topic with people giving advise on how to fix these problems which is fine i`m all for helping people but really the person needing help should create a new thread themselves, anyway back to why I`ve created this thread....

I`ve uploaded a driver package (for XP and Vista, Win7 has its own already) and fastboot recovery for our Racer (CWM) FOR GEN1 PHONES ONLY----------ALSO MAKE SURE YOUR PHONE IS FULLY CHARGED BEFORE ATTEMPING THIS

have your usb cable handy for connecting to computer. This method is if you cant boot your phone at all and CWM recovery does not work either......

Download: HERE

1. Download package above and extract to your computer desktop using winrar or similar program

2. Turn phone off take battery out, wait 5 secs then replace battery

3. Press and hold vol+ and press power button once whilst still holding vol+ the red led and green droid picture should both stay on

4. Now connect the usb cable to the computer and then the phone, wait afew moments for any drivers to install, win7 will install them itself, xp/vista you may have to install them manually (drivers included in download package, "ZTE Handset USB Driver 5.2066.1.8")

5. Once you`ve successfully installed the drivers you can check this by going on device manager on your computer, your phone should be listed as "Fastboot Interface" under "ADB Interfaces".

6. Now go into the Racer-Fastboot-Recovery-CWM folder that you extracted earlier on your desktop and double click on the "windows-flash-gen1-recovery.bat" file, cmd will open, message will say successfully installed CWM (clockwork recovery mod CWM) press any key to exit cmd window....

7. Disconnect the usb cable from phone, take battery out wait afew seconds, replace battery, press and hold vol- and press power button once whilst still holding vol- you now should have CWM menu to install your custom ROMS.......

if it fails to install CWM double check you have installed device drivers correctly and computer recognises your phone (steps 2-5) and then repeat again (steps 2-7)

If your doing the TPT method to install 2.2 gen2 then i think you`d have to revert back to gen1 first then use this method if needed. Partition sizes are different i think, but i suppose in theory it wipes all internal memory/recoveries and partitions and flashs gen1 version but i`m not going to advise you do it this way

ok, connect phone to computer and check manually if theres any newer drivers for your device by going on control panel/windows update, cant remember if you`ve tried the "recovery manager" option ? NOT ROM MANAGER

have you tried the latest version HERE version RecoveryManager_v0.37b which will work with 2.3.4/5 custom ROMS, uninstall any previous versions you have already on phone first before installing this version then check to see it works when you open it and reply back

ok another option is to use terminal emulator on the app menu

1. Download this HERE and rename it to "recovery" (without the quotes) copy to root of your sdcard...

2. Open terminal emulator and type "su" and hit enter (this will give super user to the emulator) and after that type "flash _image recovery /sdcard/recovery" (without the quotes) hit enter...

once done, press and hold power button, goto reboot then press recovery, hopefully have recovery now.....
