[How To]Save your dead vivacity!!

After you've plugged in the phone while pressing + and - volume, go to the Device Manager of Windows and look under the "Ports (COM and LPT)" section. In that list will be your ZTE device with a COM number in brackets. You need to go back to iharrybao's software and change the COM number there to match the one you saw in the Device Manager.

Thanks. The other problem I am finding is that when I click on ok after entering "ZTEsmt123" I get a message saying D:\Desktop\stock_vivacity_P736EV1.0.0B13 does not exist. I extracted the zip file to a folder on my desktop which I named "stock_vivacity_P736EV1.0.0B13" but the tool seems to go looking for D:\Desktop. I'm not sure what is necessary.

Paul

PS: I changed to my laptop which has a D Drive and went through the procedure. It seemed to work as I got a "passed" message at the end. Phone is now alive again. Many thanks to snapback.pngiharrybao and tygertyger. Now just have to reinstall everything. I had a lot of apps installed on sd card. Is it ok to just reinstall over what is there?

Hi, i keep getting stuck at 90% and it says download failed please check the log file to get fail information. everything is in a diff language.

I have tried everything, tested on laptop and pc both have C drive for local disc

i used a USB stick created a desktop file and extracted the file there and also renaming to stock_vivacity_P736EV1.0.0B13 so the full path is D:\Desktop\stock_vivacity_P736EV1.0.0B13

I have the correct port but nothing works.

Please help

Sonny

You don't have to use the stock rom file. Try using fish n chips instead and see if that installs.

If not you'll need to double check your flashing the correct rom version for your handset (there are lots of unsupported blade 2 varieties).

Also, did you by any chance install a different tpt?

firstly I want to say that I'm Chinese, and I have no idea if I could make you understand.

So let's begin!

1. you should download the stock ROM P736E, and extract it on your desk. Here's the B13 for you.

http://www.mediafire...b9d38933nmxwrp1

2.download the force flash tool (we call this, and I just translate it like that ) and extract it.

3.open the tool named USDL....

4.press the ! to change it to "管理员" mode.and input the code like this

attachicon.gifQQ截图20120520124810.jpgattachicon.gifQQ截图20120520124825.jpg

you can press the english verson if you are not chinese ;)

5.(on your phone)take out the battery. press the volume + and - at the same time.

you can press the volume keys with one of your thumb, and use another hand to conect your phone to your computer with USB. then the computer will find a hardware. check your device management, you'll find like this. just remember the COM you have!(mine is COM11)

6.back to the tool, press option-port config

7.choose the COM you have. better use line2.

8.press the SW directory button to choose the B13 ROM(the on you have extract on your desk)

9. press the button here

10.waiting!

after the download, your phone is alive~! :D

after that you can flash recovery and ROMs

Those having connection problems in ftm or recovery. Using either usb 3 and/or windows 8: open device manager with your phone connected. You should see here the phone, but listed with an error. right click and select update driver. Windows should then download a working and updated driver. If message says it can't find driver or driver is already up to date make sure your setting is to check windows update for device driver's. This setting can be enabled in the group policy editor.

I am trying to do this on a mac. will this have any effect on this method working as i cannot seem to find which port my vivacity is connected to. Also when saving the file to desktop and trying to select it through the USDL program, it says it is not there etc (cant remember the exact error message). Will i have to do all of this on a windows based PC/Laptop or can i do all of this on my macbook? It also wont see the phone when the battery is taken out or in FTM mode. Only when the battery is in and it does the loop on the t mobile logo is when my macbook actually sees the phone, as a disc/drive.

Hi, i am having failures with using this process, My phone is stuck on the FTM screen everytime I turn it on.
I have tried this process many many times and same result. Maybe I am doing something wrong.

 

I followed the initial instructions to the letter and still nothing I always end up at the FTM screen, is there something else that I need to do.
