you need original FTM recovery to upgrade to gen2 2.2.2 via terminal software for your country/provider, revert to it, boot it, plug usb and just hit upgrade or whatever

thats odd, it should format everything, update your tpts and flash a new 2.2.2 android rom on your device.. did you ask for your provider to update it for you? they should do it for free if you took phone from them

yeah but they say they discontinued support for zte link and no updates to 2.2 will be available

You need to use USDL tool to flash TPT files to your phone, but it might destroy you phone by mistake operation(like lose power in the middle, wrong ROM, NVM no backup, etc).

If you really want to do this, backup you NVM first! and make sure your backup file has the size 69KB.

It's the info in the bootloader I think that offical ZTE (online) update tool read your phone model from, so flash a "offical" zip ROM via cwm won't help.

and you may want to read more threads to learn how to TPT with USDL tool.:D Wish you luck!
