As per your post #14 of this thread, and then following instructions in Final clockworkmod gui post.

Hope this helps on the road to 1-click root for 2.3.5

can you boot into clockwork by powering the phone on & when at the green android logo pops up holding down the volume down button until vibration..

If by that's booting to a white square containing the letters FTM - then yes, if not then Iguess no

excellent this is exactally wot we need, it sounds like you have achieved wot we have been failing at .... smile.gif

good work... we should get this made into flashable .zip & pinned for you & all the other skate users who may need to revert to 100% stock for warranty or such smile.gif

Thanks, from Win7 64bit it was pretty straightforward with GUI.

Process followed if anyone is interested was as follows:

1. Loaded and booted clockwork via APB with "r4-4.0.14-skate-clockworkmod.zip" as per your instructions in post #14

2. Rebooted to Android

3. Loaded and booted GUI via APB with "update photom_cwm_update_skate.zip" as per Final Clockwork GUI post

4. Selected backup and waited for it to complete

5. Rebooted to Android and copied the files from SD card

Newbie luck I guess

(unlocked phone bought from Brightpoint - local UK distributor)

Brightpoint, are they not those guys who do 30% APR lease to own consumer goods? thats scary if ZTE could not find someone better to partner with. :(

to everyone using 2.3.5 do not use the root guide that is pinned.... it will just boot loop.... i installed clockworkmod before trying so i could unbrick the phone....

be warned ohmy.gif

clockworkmod is safe to install if you wish to use other roms.....smile.gif

Hi.

I Want to try it again, like reo2xor did, but now I get error: device not found (the driver is installed)

And I don't understand step 3.

3. Loaded and booted GUI via APB with "update photom_cwm_update_skate.zip" as per Final Clockwork GUI post

Thanks

Great. The unlocked ZTE Skate with 2.3.5 has arrived to our local stores too. I want to buy one, but root is a must, because I want to use link2sd. I will wait for more news from you.

I would like to use link2sd also. But It doesn't depend on my, I'm newbie to Android to figure it out. But skilled members like tillaz and others could do that.

But you can try this one: http://android.modac...ingerbread-235/

Is it possible to pin this thread? I believe that standard ZTE Firmware is very important thing.

Also it would be useful to attach .zip file with firmware to the first post.

I read the whole thread and I got lost here to be honest... :/

Are any of the img's(if yes, which one?) on OP unbranded/unlocked or still no joy?
