Vodafone Smart Ultra 6 stock ROMs, OTAs, and recoveries

Recommended Posts

Hi, I accidentaly deleted the ROM when doing a wipe using TWRP, so it says "No OS Installed" when I try to reboot. I have tried flashing the UK stock rom from this page but it keeps saying "could not find 'META-INF/com/google/android/update-binary' in the zip file"

Anyone know why this is? Thanks

EDIT: Dont worry I was being an idiot, I have unzipped the full package, put the rom zip and recovery image zip in the internal storage (is this what you mean by 'root' of phone? If you mean / where system and stuff are I cant do that because I am not rooted. Will try flashing recovery and installing rom and get back to you,

Thanks

install adb on your pc install the usb driver found below .connect your phone via usb and in twrp go to advanced, adb sideload. place update.zip in the adb folder ,shift + right click in the adb folder and open a command. type adb sideload update.zip into the command window and it will flash the update to your phone.

Does anyone have any mirror links to Smart Ultra 6 firmware? None of the links in the first post are working (for the ztedevice domain).

Many thanks.

Here is a collection of stock firmware for Vodafone Smart Ultra 6. If you find any missing/updated firmware or receive any OTAs, please post it to this thread. Updates are available at ZTE support site.
 
Do not use TWRP to flash stock firmware! You'll find update.zip and installation instructions within each package. Use stock recovery that is compatible with your stock firmware to install (stock recovery images are in TWRP flashable zips).

I would use the UK MR02 recovery. The recoveries don't seem region specific and should update with​ a full flash anyway.

@wbrambley
Was it not recommended to use the Turkish recovery? I'm going back to stock as well and I don't know if I should use the Irish recovery listed in the OP or the latest Turkish one.

Same what?

I was saying that Greece, Ireland, and Portugal 5.1.1 firmware actually ship with Turkish recovery files (ro.build.display.id=VDF-995NB01-TR_MR02b). That's just not right. There's another set of recovery patch files in /system as usual (vs. ones in recovery directory which is not even extracted during installation BTW) but those don't match the boot.img that comes with the firmware (boot.img is again identical in all four 'builds'). That's also the reason why stock recovery isn't updating even when you update to 5.1.1.

All previous stock recoveries have been unique.

 Also noticed something strange, the latest update.zip on ZTEs site appears to be Lollipop even though we got an update to Marshmallow this year.

I've used the Turkish recovery and installed stock ROM successfully it was lollipop but had OTA updates to marshmallow again without the OTA file weird.

@Boggledrooter Thanks for the info, it went smoothly without any trouble right?

Yes, it went without a hitch just install the Turkish stock recovery first and make sure the update.zip is extracted to your external SD card preferably and install it from the stock recovery.

Is there any way to  ROOT a Vodafone smart ultra 6? running the latest 6.0.1 Marshmallow ? or if not, is it possible to install an original Rom (5.0?) so I can get ROOT.

I need to do whatever's necessary to get  access to disable a malfunctioning soft key

Hello can I asked for some help please? I'm on marshmallow and I want to go back to lollipop so I can root and install twrp so I can flash cm13 rom. How can I do this do I install UK lollipop via stock recovery and do I need to install stock recovery? IV tried installing stock lollipop but I get signature verification failed. Any help would be great thanks

I flashed the Turkish MM ROM over my original New Zealand one. I then flashed the Turkish LP version. Then install TWRP and the TWRP flashable MM ROM.
