can i just check paul or Sebastian, are we are doing this right or is there more to it ???

Once you have the drivers installed you should be able to use ADB, you can enable this this by going into options/applications and turning on remote debugging..

grab a copy of ClockworkMod recovery from this forum, and unzip it somehwere

it should come with a copy of fastboot-windows.exe and adb-windows.exe

now you should be able to type 'adb-windows.exe reboot bootloader'

and your phone should reboot and stay at the android/SFR logo/other, once that happens you should type 'fastboot-windows.exe boot clockworkmod.img' and clockwork mod will boot...

once there you can use clockwork mod to do a full nadroid backup, make sure you only share your boot.img, recovery.img and system.img files, the other ones will contain your personal information..

for colonel,

try this for your back up, this is the method the user on 2.3.5 had success with. smile.gif

from Win7 64bit it was pretty straightforward with GUI.

Process followed if anyone is interested was as follows:

1. Loaded and booted adb-windows.exe via adb from "r4-4.0.14-skate-clockworkmod"

2. Rebooted to Android

3. Loaded and booted GUI via adb 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

Sorry, I can't follow this, this is too much for me :blink:

I need a step by step instruction, not having to jump through at least 3 Threads with references to different posts throughout these threads.

Do we actually NEED my backup? Now that we have 2.3.5 backup? I doubt my rom will be any better ;)

no, this is just for your benefit and other zte branded skate users with versions 2.3.4,

should anything go wrong when rooting, flashing a custom rom, or a warranty return its a good idea you guys have access to a 100% stock rom smile.gif

EDIT: i think all he done different woz use the clockworkmod image from here

I did that:

DONT DO THIS!! (Root using superboot. The topic is pinned )

there currently is no root exploit that works with 2.3.4 (that I know of at least) so you need to do the following..

plug the phone into your pc and let it install the drivers, the phone should show up as a CD drive the first time you hook it up...

Once you have the drivers installed you should be able to use ADB, you can enable this this by going into options/applications and turning on remote debugging..

grab a copy of ClockworkMod recovery from this forum, and unzip it somehwere

it should come with a copy of fastboot-windows.exe and adb-windows.exe

now you should be able to type 'adb-windows.exe reboot bootloader'

and your phone should reboot and stay at the android/SFR logo/other, once that happens you should type 'fastboot-windows.exe boot clockworkmod.img' and clockwork mod will boot...

once there you can use clockwork mod to do a full nadroid backup, make sure you only share your boot.img, recovery.img and system.img files, the other ones will contain your personal information..

The only thing I did different was that I used the recovery mode image from this thread:

My link

Edit: Bottom Line:

1. Install the drivers

2. type adb-windows.exe reboot bootloader

3. type fastboot-windows.exe boot recovery.img

4. phone will boot into the recovery mode

5. select backup and wait for it to finish.

You will then find a nandroid folder on your SD-card with the backup inside.

So instead of "fastboot-windows.exe boot clockworkmod.img" you did "fastboot-windows.exe boot recovery.img"?

we already have a 100% stock 2.3.5 rom, its exactly the same as wot you will produce

download it here > http://android.modac...not-unlock-omc/

if you just want to back up just flash clockworkmod with the guide, and take it from there

but remember DO NOT USE THE ROOTING GUIDE ON VERSION 2.3.5 (pauls superboot ) smile.gif

Ok. I know, I only want to learn new things about Android as I did WM. That's all. :)

And how do I do rooting with Android 2.3.5?

Yes, I believe the name of the recovery image from that recovery mode is called "recovery.img"

P.S.: I just flashed your Bluemonte V1.6, I love it, GREAT job!!!!

Probably a bit late to check this, as the colonel has installed bluemonte, but didn't he get his Skate from China, I'm guessing 2.3.4, or am I still brain addled from being awake till 4am playing with the new rom?unsure.gif

That's o.k. :lol:

Let's just collect all the different roms. Pretty soon Aldi will be selling the Skate and as far as I know, China Unicom will also be selling these babys, soon :-)

Edit: BTW, maybe somebody can collect all the needed files, throw them together and write a little script?

Maybe that'll help people who want to dump their roms as well?

if the above will not work try going back a page or two and run the method colonel used to dump his rom, from there you should be able to flash a rom smile.gif
