Hi, my friend got bricked blade(china v880), so please tell me which ROM to use to restore it with this tool?
The chinese one. But try everything here first - then you may avoid a host of other problems

i tried upgrading my zte racer from gen1 to gen2 using the TPT method and it ended in messing up my phone bad. the wont boot up and there is no display. the only thing thats shows some sign of life is that the led blinks 2 seconds and the phone vibrates mildly.
after lot of searching i stumbled upon this thread. i could make out that my phone is only detectable under ZTE Handset Diagnostic Interface(DFU). keeping that in mind i followed the steps given in the start of the thread. i think i followed the procedure correctly because in the end the status showed 'Pass' in the flasher, but after unplugging the cable, the symptoms are the same. there is no display and the phone wont boot into recovery. is it the fact that this method is for v880 and not for racer and which is why its not working?
Oh jesus. good luck fixing it now. you'll need to flash actual ZTE racer firmware with this flasher, and then fix up your IMEI. I don't know where you can find it, but yes, this thread is for he blade not the racer.
thanks for the response..oh man, i really messed this up..:-(...i am trying to identify the actual make of zte racer because the phone is really a dell xcd28 here in india..do you know which firmware will be applicable?
Probably any designed for a ZTE racer, if thats waht it is.
I don't have any links, try asking in azte racer forum.
no, you need to find TPT files for the racer (partition.mbn etc). there were some that originally came with the program in the OP of this thread, but they got taken down. try asking burstlam or rickywyatt (mod in the racer forum)
thanks for pointing me to the right direction..i looked it up and stumbled upon this link http://android.modac...80#entry1772380
the tpt files are there in a chinese firmware, but the link seems to be dead..i have replied on that thread..lets see if i get a response..
meanwhile, i request burstlam and rickywyatt to help me out..:-(

Here the firmware package for Racer uploaded
I was able to access the link provided in the thread link i shared earlier. I used your flasher to flash the firmware and then restore my backup(containting CWM recovery ) via fastboot. After that i flashed b08 rom and now my phone is up and running..only problem i am facing is that i am not able to restore my imei and which is why my phone is not getting registered on the operator's network.
I had flashed a stock rom before installing my CWM backup to restore the IMEI in FTM mode, but repeatedy got a failure during NV restore. Has it something to do with the stock rom I used? It was a UK ECLAIR stock rom.
If you are restoring it by editing the channel1.nvm here then its probably failing because its designed for the blade. You might need to get someone with a functioning racer to back up their NV memory and let you have the file to put your IMEI in it.
does anyone knows how to change the splash screen in zte racer? i dont like the 'w' logo that is displayed the moment the phone boots up. i have looked around on the web, but havent been successful.
it is the "splash.img" in the firmware package
