Recommended Posts

hey guys, i was just wondering how is returning to stock done, i was running Flibs de-branded gingerbread ROM and i was TPT'd to a bigger size, i didnt know what to do,so i downloaded the stock osf II ROM,, went into clockwork mod,backed up,wipe data,cache and dalvik,and attempted to install it, all went fine except when i went to reboot it couldnt boot into the rom and i no longer have clockwork mod recovery i have the "Android system recovery <3e>" and the only options in that are reboot,install update.zip, wipe data,wipe cache, i really dont know what to do,could any of you help, i know it sounds so noobish and i hate it because this never happened to me with my old blade or skate :(

Go to ZTEs site and use the download tool to get the latest stock. Your phone needs to be booted into FTM mode.

Cant you just boot into FTM mode and run Cloackwork Recovery again. reformat the SD card and drop the update.zip on it Fish'n'Chips preferably and run the install from SD card option. it should work.

Here's another option: if you have somehow lost Clockwork Recovery you can get it back with this http://android.modac...lash-recovery/. You'll obviously need to get the TPT "image" onto the SD card somehow - maybe a card reader or via another "borrowed" phone? You can then use Clockwork to reformat the SD Card. Then put your chosen ROM ( I'd go for FnC) on the SD & flash via Clockwork & with any luck you'll be sorted.

i do not understand, i have a semi functioning blade, i can get into clockwork on that, so i would plug the blade in ,transfer the TPT over to that, put the SD back in the crescent, do the tpt,and when the tpt is over format the sd ?
