smaje added a topic in ZTE Blade / Libra - Blade.MoDaCo.com"factory reset" to CM-10.1?I've just got myself a new android phone, and will be passing my Blade to another member of the family. I'm using Kosta's CM10.1 rom, and would like to give them a clean phone with this OS. A sort of factory reset, but to this OS - especially removing all my settings and apps.
What's the best way of doing this on a Blade?
Thanks for any suggestions
ps If it were my laptop, I'd reinstall the OS on a reformatted drive.

smaje added a topic in ZTE Blade / Libra - Blade.MoDaCo.comincompatible appsHi
Google Play store (don't like that name!) says that the Chrome and Firefox apps are incompatible with my Blade. So no option to download.
Why is that? Does anyone know? Is there any way round it?
And what alternatives do people use for a good browser? I'm trying Dolphin which seems pretty good so far.

smaje added a topic in ZTE Blade / Libra - Blade.MoDaCo.comneed larger system partitionHi
To upgrade to Kosta's CM-10.1 I need the /system partition to be 160Mb. So I try flashing
in clockworkmod recovery (188.8.131.52).
However it doesn't work: I get
-- Installing: /sdcard/blade_wbaw......zip
Finding update package...
Opening update package...
Any ideas what's wrong?
My phone is a Gen1 Blade, updated to Gen2 via TPT (I have CM 9.0 installed and working fine).
Should I downgrade to Gen1 first?
Thanks for any suggestions.
ps I also tried flashing the TPT as in the instructions on
but if I hold power + volume up + menu I get the blue CyanogenMod android guy, and it hangs.
(And power + volume up has the same effect)
pps the Blade Checker App says
European Blade (512MB RAM) detected
TPT Upgraded Gen 2 Phone detected
Use Gen 1 style TPTs
Current partition sizes:

smaje added a topic in ZTE Blade / Libra - Blade.MoDaCo.comcan't start phoneHi
I have an Orange San Francisco which I've been enjoying using for a few months, thanks to Modaco's Android 2.2.
My phone crashed today (perhaps low battery) and after recharging it I can't restart it!
When I press the restart button at the top I just get the green android logo. And it just sits there. And the only way to turn it off seems to be to remove the battery - it doesn't respond to the usual method of holding down the button.
Is there anything I can do?
