Did I get it right that this method rewrites all partitions, including recovery, so if something messes up, I have no chance of repairing it since the recovery won't work? Thanks

Sometimes another TPT will fix it.

But if you flash a TPT to a device that it's not meant to go onto - or you flash a TPT that you have not checked its good (MD5 check) then you run the risk of bricking your device.

Flashing the TPT designed for the ZTE Blade onto the the V880 will not work.

Unless you can get hold of a V880 TPT then I am afraid that your device is bricked.

The V880 is very different to the ZTE BLADE - the guide in this forum is ONLY for the ZTE Blade.

Problem with unlock?

I just tried loading the Hungarian unlocking image.

I folowed the instructions on the hungarian site (see attachment) which said to remove the SIM before rebooting (I see the MoDaCo instructions don't mention this).

I then did the Menu-Vol+-Power reboot and after about 15 minutes the Green Android figure is still there - don't know how long it should take but this seems like a long time.

My phone is a UK TFT phone which is supposed to be OK for this update.

Does it matter whether the USB cable is still connected to the PC? (mine was connected but of course the SD card does not show on the PC when loading the update).

I have reloaded the firmware on many devices before without problems, but I am new to the San Francisco.

Can anyone out there help with this?

Edit - after removing battery and replacing battery and SIM, I got to a screen with "ZTE" on it in large letters. Now having trouble with the SIM PIN! Will update when I confirm the phone has been updated......according to another post here, leaving the USB cable attached was the problem.

Edit 2: Everything OK now. The phone shows memory at 414MB. I just needed to remember to remove the USB cable after uploading the new image file.

Hi

My device was bought in UK last December, OLED. The specifications leaflet says it has 512 MB of ROM. But when I check the device's current memory through SmartBar app it shows: 208.12M, Free 70.87M. Is this normal for UK-bought phones which are supposed to have 512 M, or do I have a lock or something? Thanks..

I think you are looking at the wrong value.

Reread the first post again.

Sorry for the noobish post, but do I need to use this?


Your RAM is 414MB - so no (some RAM is used by the Kernel)

That is fine - Yours will also show as 414MB Max, but 280MB available

Need to check but have a sneaky suspicion my UK TFT version is 256MB. Any reason why only half is configured addressable and any other implications by applying this fix? Are all San Franciscos 512MB and any way to tell if it is one of the phones to be avoided from menu etc?

Thanks.

None of the UK phones have 256MB RAM

They have about that space in /Data

Tried this TPT image on a blade with blocked fastboot (Orange B10 ROM), can confirm that fastboot works once this is complete. :huh:

(Also no need to redo the network unlock)
