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

� 兴强刷工具.rar

Nice work iharrybao!

But the 'force flash tool' didn't download correctly for me (due to the Chinese characters), so I've changed it to English and re attached it here:

USDL_P726CV1.00.00.rar

Hope that helps.

Thank you very much for this guide. I tried absolutely every technique, nothing worked, even ZTE's own recovery equivalent couldn't recognize the phone properly. But this worked and I have my phone back!

Hi, My vivacity suddenly had problems with booting up and just sticks at the T-Mobile Logo so I wanted to try your procedure to see if I can get the phone going again. In your instructions you said that your COM is COM 11but in the example you give it says:

"ZTE Handset Diagnostic Interface COM 13"

So in the example would it be COM 13 to use or am I missing something? Sorry, I am an amateur at all this.
