BASE Tab / ZTE Light bricked?

Recommended Posts


I have a BASE Tab I think it is a ZTE V9 / Light? I installed a custom ROM with Cyanogenmod 7 which works very well. Now I want to update this but I need an GEN 2 Device. I turned on google and found this: http://android.modaco.com/topic/337757-update-save-ur-bricked-v880-and-also-the-imei/

After i flashed the device with "B. GEN 2 Orange Sanfranciso with a partition layout of 136 mb system 15 cache and 289mb data" i put in the battery and turned on the device. I only see some colored lines and the word "clockwor". I think I bricked the device. I cannot start DFU mode again.

Can anyone help me?

If you had CM7 on your device it was already "gen 2". My understanding is that Android 2.1 was "gen1" and that Android 2.2 is "gen2".

The url you cited seems to refer to the ZTE blade I think Not the V9 tab. That is the wrong device. Also, they seem to provide a downgrade from CM7 to stock 2.2 with a better partition layout.(why would you try that when you are happy with CM7?)

There are a number of posts here and on other forums describing how to reflash provided you can get a usb connection to the device in recovery mode.

A useful reference that covers several options including using adb (A last resort for most non-geeks!) is:


Try connecting your device to pc after installing zte usb driver and see if its recognized on a com port (device manager).
