I bought a ZTE Blade from Hungarian Vodafone. The phone shows 166 MB RAM as total system memory and 160 MB ROM
Yesterday I installed Swedish_Spring_RLS5 ROM. Unfortunately after a successful installation the total available RAM is still 166 MB. This value is the same as before.
I didn’t check the total amount of the ROM because I got angry and I restored the phone on the original stock ROM.
I don’t know if somebody else has tried to solve the RAM issue on Hungarian Vodafeon. If yes, please advise me.
However during the installation process I met some strange things:
1. I’ve should download ZTE-Blade Recovery Manager 0.34b but I didn’t found that only Recovery Manager 0.34b on the given link(s). The screenshots from Recovery Manager 0.34b show ZTE Blade Recovery Manager. After installation of the app, it showed Recovery Manager. Why?
2. When I wanted to install recovery-clockwork-188.8.131.52-blade-g2.img, the Recover Manager said: Unrecognized image or something similar. Why?
Finally I could install recovery-clockwork-3.2 but don’t ask how. I don’t know that. I tried many other ways to install a custom ROM but the all failed somewhere the installation process. By chance during a reboot Clockwork started to operate on my phone. I was surprised but curious, and I installed Swedish Spring RLS5 on the way you describet in:
3. How to Install a ROM using Clockwork Manually
Unfortunately as I mentioned earlier it hasn’t solved the 166 MB problem.
Do you have any idea what the problem can be?
Why I cannot find ZTE-Blade Recovery Manager and why it doesn’t want to recognize Clockwork, however I followed your description from step by step?
Thanks in advance for your answer.
Anyway, your description about how to install a custom ROM is great. It one of the best descriptions for dummies on the Internet. Thanks for it. I think other geeks should follow as you make instructions.
