Hi guys. I tried the tutorial on the greek blade and now it is stuck in the green android screen.

Help, please!!!!


Which TPT did you flash?

Did you check the MD5 when you downloaded the ZIP - can you check it and re-put the /image files back onto the SDCARD and try again

The one from this post.

I checked it. So now I should remove the battery and retry?

Thanks for the quick reply.

Yes re-try it.

Otherwise pick a TPT with clockwork on it and use clockwork to flash a new ROM of your choice

Yes this method will work - you could use the TTP with clockwork on it already (older version need to update it after) http://android.modac...01-05-oled-tft/

Or you could just Superuser and use Recovery Manager.

Fastboot is a mode for doing low level stuff to the phone : it is always in English

You will be asked when the ROM boots what language you want android in

Okay So I jyst want to check I have got this right before I do something wrong:
-The device is rooted using universal androot.
-Clockwork is installed.
-Hungarian update is on SD.
-Reboot phone into clockwork.
-I install it using clockwork
-Then using superuser that I got from universal androot I install Japjelly.

Is that correct or have I missed/added any steps?

The TPT can only be installed using the 3 Key COMBO - see instructions. (not in Clockwork)

The TPT will leave your phone with
Stock Recovery
Stock Hungarian ROM

After this you need to treat the phone like a brand new device and re-install clockwork

After that you just install the ROM you want

From the 2.1 ROM to a 2.2 ROM there is a Large increase in speed.

From 2.2 to 2.3 there is another slight increase, but for me 2.2 is the most ready for every day use.

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

(Also no need to redo the network unlock)


Is it recommended to do this to a B10 phone?

I don't mean is it safe to flash.. I mean does it provide a safety net in case you do something stupid in the future and need fastboot to get back out of that situation? Or is the blade pretty safe just having a decent recovery so theres no need to get fastboot working?

What's everyone's thoughts?

would it be possible to reverse this so that instead of the tpt program flashing it reads and saves?

After installing this image screen became brighter (TFT, info about it is now unreadable) and now there is no clear black color. Installing any other ROM doesn't help.

What ROM / recovery did you install -what is your device?

There is definitely something screwy about my newly bought ZTE Blade, as I wrote here:
http://android.modac...otection-maybe/

There might be some sort of changes to the ZTE sold in Greece lately. Neither Recovery Manager nor Recovery ROM are able to install ClockworkMod on this device. I'm scared of flashing Hungarian ROM with no means of recovery if something goes wrong.
