Please find attached *MY* build of the latest version of Koush's ClockworkMod Recovery for the ZTE-Racer. It is not officially supported by Koush, please do not bother him with support questions for this build.

I have tested it as much as I can, but I'm always open to any more constructive feedback. Please see one post down for a change log for THIS build. Koush seems not to publish a change log (unless you know of one).

To install:
  • Recovery Manager
  • fastboot method
    • Unplug the USB cable, turn off your device and take out the battery
    • Replace the battery and turn the device on holding the 'volume up' key. The device will stay at the 'green android' screen.
    • Plug the device into the PC.
    • From a command prompt run 'fastboot flash recovery <filename>.img'
    • When this finishes, from the command prompt run 'fastboot reboot'
  • update.zip methodIf you have a previous version or another recovery install, install the update.zip and restart your device.
How to Enter recovery mode:
  • restart your device holding down the 'volume down' key
  • Use the Recovery Manager application to Reboot into Recovery
  • if you have ADB configured type 'adb reboot recovery' from the command line.
Downloads:The Latest version of Clockworkmod Recovery can found here
Previous versions:
  • Older versions of Clockwork recovery can be found here.
Official release
  • The offical version of ClockworkMod Recovery if available for this device can be found here
Which version:
  • ClockworkMod Recovery now comes in 2 different versions for 1st and 2nd Generation devices, if your device originaly shipped with Android 2.1, it will usually be 1st generation, if it came with 2.2 it will usually be 2nd generation. Please note if you have used an officaly updater on a 1st generation device it will now be a 2nd generation device.
Warning:
  • Support for the old style update files that use the Amend scripting (update-script) method is no longer supported With ClockworkMod Recovery from v3 onwards, if you require support for the Amend scripting method, use v2.5.1.8.
Source
  • The Device Config to build ClockworkMod Recovery as part of CyanogenMod can be found on my GitHub.
Kernel Information
  • Information about the Kernel used in this ROM can be found on this thread.

Thanks, the v3.0.0.5 works great but the v2.5.1.8 doesn't...
It just stays in the android icon.

EDIT: Forget it, I've tried again and now it works.

ERROR: Can't mount /dev/block/mtdblock3 - it is for system NO CACHE/ for cache mtdblock4 :huh: =*


I am fairly sure that mtd3 is /cache

looking at my device right now...

dev:	size   erasesize  name
mtd0: 00480000 00020000 "recovery"
mtd1: 00480000 00020000 "boot"
mtd2: 00060000 00020000 "misc"
mtd3: 00c80000 00020000 "cache"
mtd4: 09600000 00020000 "system"
mtd5: 127e0000 00020000 "userdata"
mtd6: 00180000 00020000 "persist"

I also checked the dump from the RS_VIPV1.0.0B01 device.. its the same layout...

Have you got a racer or a link? I've heard the ZTE Link is different....

First thing you need to do is use ROMDUMP http://android.podtwo.com/romdump/ to dump your rom and then upload it somewhere for me, we dont' have that version in the stock roms.

After that, you need to install the g1 version
