Cheers - a nice guide for those less experienced.

I've just tried to verify the checksum by running the md5sum command but get an error about md5sum not being recognised?



This thread was needed a long time ago. Needs pinning and a medal sending out to OP!

I'm trying to flash the Japanese Jellyfish Rom using TPT. Instead of getting a black screen/text i get a green android man which stays there indefinately (removing and replacing the battery allows me to restart normally). I have noticed that once I've extracted the file into the image directory, the stuff is in an image directory inside that, is that why? I don't want to edit that without someone giving me a go ahead as I have little experience of this sort of thing on phones.

Thanks in advance

Edit: I've been impatiant and edited the folder so that it is at (my sd card's directory)/image/(extracted files). Nothing happened when turning on with holding menu but the text came up as in the volcano video but afterward it sticks on the green android figure. Also whenever I turn it on holding any buttons or normally it stays at the green android man. This is probably my fault due to being inpatient but can I ask for help anyway please?

Ok you did it right.

Did you MD5sum the Zip file before you extracted it to the SDCard.

The Files SHOULD be <DRIVE>:\image\<FILES>

When you hold the MENU and UP VOLUME buttons the low level format starts and writes all teh files you put in the image directory over the partitions on your PHONE

All you need to do is reboot holding down these 2 buttons first.

The Screen may be blank - it may show you some green text.

After about 3 minutes teh phone will auto reboot - please try this again

If you didnt MD5 the file before - please do it now.

I did MD5sum the zip and it gave the output in the origional post.

I preformed the turning on while holding the volume up and menu buttons as directed, and the devise behaved as expected until 3 minutes, where it continued to show a green android screen, I left it for half an hour while i did something else and when I looked back it was still at this point, any suggestions? Would writing a different rom to my SD cardwork better?

PS : It does say update sucess

This site is great and thanks to all great users! ;)

I have a problem in my ZTE with MoDaCo Custom Froyo ROM Beta7-8 installed if anyone can help!
I can't get a GPS fix on satellites. I didn't notice that this wouldn't be working in this version! Is there any solution to this problem!?

Thanks

Hi Everyone,

This Thread has served it's purpose : It is now too large.

It has been split into 2 much more concise threads

[GUIDE] How to Install a Custom ROM on the ZTE Blade

and

[ROMS] Current Known / Available ROM's for the ZTE Blade


Anything that is not fitting to them threads will be moved / replicated /added to

[GUIDE] Common Problems / Questions / FAQ

or

[GUIDE] Android Glossary - Ideal for New Users


Thanks for all you help support and feedback.

This thread will stay here unpinned / but locked, for future reference.
