The MCRi install method has served us well (and definitely still has applications going forward), but I'm pleased to say that (after a somewhat haphazard learning curve with regards to compiling Koush's great recovery from scratch) we now have ClockworkMod custom recovery for our ZTE Blade devices! :) This recovery has been built and setup by me and is in no way endorsed buy Koush, so please don't ask him for support! :(

I have now published the source for the Blade device profile on my GitHub, so the recovery should be officially supported in ROM Manager soon!

You can load recovery by powering on the device with 'Volume Down' pressed, by using 'adb recovery', by installing 'Quick Boot' from the Market or by installing 'ROM Manager' from the market.

Navigation in the recovery image as follows:
  • Volume Up / Down to move between options
  • Home key to select an option
  • Back key to go back
Step by step install instructions
  • Download 2.5.1.3 ClockworkMod Recovery for ZTE Blade - DOWNLOAD (Mediafire Pro) - MD5: 0733acd513717f2dc7ee08809bd7ea20
  • Download fastboot if you do not have it already.
  • Turn off your phone and take out the battery. Unplug the phone from the PC / charger.
  • Replace the battery and turn the phone back on with 'volume up' held. The device will stay at the 'green android' screen.
  • Plug the phone into the PC.
  • Extract the fastboot zip file.
  • From a command prompt (at the directory containing these new files!) run 'fastboot-windows flash recovery recovery-clockwork-2.5.1.3-blade.img' (subsituting 'fastboot-mac' or 'sudo fastboot-linux' as required)
  • When this finishes, from the command prompt run 'fastboot-windows reboot' (again substituting 'fastboot-mac' or 'sudo fastboot-linux' as required)
  • Done!
;)

The changelog and any known issues are in the next post.

2.5.0.9 remains available for download here.

Dumb question from a newbie: What is the purpose of ClockworkMod please? What additional utilities or modifications does it bring to the phone?

Many thanks for your work.

I'd imagine that this phone is going to bring a lot of Smartphone virgins to them and this website.

How about a glossary of terms, software and ROMs for noobs? That will prevent a lot of repeated questions clogging up the forum.

Three terms which come up a lot are "jailbreaking", "rooting", "flashing" and "custom ROMs".

The whole phone is built upside down. Shootme screenshots come out upside down. Android Screencast also comes out upside down. I do wonder if they mounted the screen upside down for wiring and then just flipped everything in the software lol.

Definately strange but this phone does have some upside down theme going on.

Could we not add the reboot to recovery option on shutdown, as you now added on the HTC Desire?

http://www.xda-devel...-1-for-android/

Would this method not work?

Potentially, I quite like the 'Quick Boot' app tho. Works well. :)
