ZTE Blade II released

53 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I've just bought myself a ZTE Blade II(not the OSF2) and it's really fast(1GHz processor). It's been released in a few European countries(Belgium,Sweden,...), just awaiting a guide to root it(internal memory is low).

which carrier did you get it from? or Direct from ZTE?

ZTE announced the Blade 2 at MWC2012 as if it was a new device, despite the face the 'crescent' (as its called here) had already used the blade2 name...

In the Specs it was 1Ghz, we where never sure if that was just going to be a speed bumped version of the OSF2 or another device.. it would be interesting to see a dump of it.

if you go into settings/about can you see a model number? it should start with a P (or an N).. the original Blade 2 was P736something (V or T depending on the sub version)

I've gotten it from the shop here in Belgium and it's sim unlocked(no carrier).

I'll paste here the about phone stuff:

Model number:

BLADEII

Android version

2.3.6

Baseband version

P735TB01

Build number

GB_EUR_P735TV1.0.0B01

If you can tell me how to do a dump, I'll be happy to help.

I've attached pictures of the phone and the battery incase people don't believe me. :P

The stock rom for it is pretty smooth(but the launcher REALLY sucks ass, ugly as s***).

Is there any way to check? I've tried CPU Spy but that doesn't show model number. Maximum CPU speed is 1008MHz.

EDIT: According to ADVERT LINK REMOVED.com it's a "Single core, 1000 MHz, Qualcomm MSM7227A" and wikipedia says it's arm v6

Done.

https://rapidshare.c...1474/build.prop

http://netload.in/da.../build.prop.htm

I got an error when I tried to attach it to the topic(Error You aren't permitted to upload this kind of file) so I uploaded it to filehosts.

same board, different cpu, by the looks of it they have used the crescent board and literally replaced the cpu, very cost effective.

wish ZTE had put a msm8225 in instead

My guess is ZTE have been working on the actual Blade II for a while, and Orange said "we want more of this" with the success of the Blade and ZTE split off what they had of the blade2 and made a new device? Maybe?

my take is that the blade2 board was ready, and they had spare msm7227t cpus from the skate, so they slotted them in and made a new device.

Well the shop selling the phone is called Base(which is owned by Orange) but here in Belgium there's no such thing as carrier branded phones. So all phones are sim unlocked and don't contain carrier bloatware.

it's worse than that..

P735F = Amigo (ro.product.board=amigo)

P735T = Blade 2 (ro.product.board=blade2)

P736V = Orange San Francisco 2 (ro.product.board=blade2)

P736T = Vivacity (ro.product.board=blade2)

P736E = Roamer (ro.product.board=roamer)

ALL of them different..

Oh I found the phone as well last week on the base site and thought it was interesting until I saw what kind of interface zte really uses :unsure:

It's been available from february I think. Whenever I'm looking for info about it I always end up on pages for the SF2 which got quite annoying so I lost interest.

ZTE really has made a mess of the names.

Thanks, I(and others) with this phone would appreciate it. :)

I tried SuperOneClick and UnlockRoot and they didn't work. Maybe the bootloader is locked?

Do you know how to use fastboot? and can you get the device into bootloader ?

it should not be to hard to get you a working root if so,
