This is a TPT Image to Install CM 7.0.2 stable to your ZTE BLADE (Base Lutetia ...)
It will also repartition your device for optimal space usage.
NEW LAYOUT !
- 15 Mb Cache (not needed by CM7)
- 136 MB system (10MB free, gapps included)
- 304 MB Data
I did this so some friends of mine can move to CM7 in an absolute easy way; so you can try it but on your own risk.
This is for people that run stock 2.1 or a custom 2.2 rom on the Blade and would like to go to CM7 in one step without the hassle of ,rooting, fastboot, clockworkmod, repartitioning and flashing.
It's all done in one step.
Also people that have a bricked phone (GEN1) can try this to unbrick.
This will work on all GEN1 devices. It will upgrade them to GEN2. there is a way back to GEN1.
Also it will work on GEN2 devices that have been upgraded from GEN1 with the TPT method.
GEN1 devices are sold with android 2.1 installed.
After using this to upgrade to GEN2 you are still able to use this TPT method while native GEN2 cannot.
IT WILL NOT WORK ON NATIVE GEN2 DEVICE WHICH WERE SHIPPED WITH 2.2. sorry! but it does no harm since the TPT will not start.
This tools show you if you have a GEN1 or GEN2.
Also it shows after flashing on a GEN1 that you are on GEN2.
wbaw does all the scripting so all credits go to him. I just use his scripts.
1) Do a backup (if needed)
I use my phone explorer (backup option) for backup contacts,calls sms
For apps I use Titanium Backup which requires Root.
There are other solutions to backup android. google is your friend.
If you are already on CM7 backup all system data with e.g. Titanium Backup so you can restore everything after upgrade - worked for me.
Remember that some apps save their data in unusuall places, e.g. Angry Birds so check for Angry Birds saver.
you can do a Nandroid backup, too but remember that this TPT changes partition size so before you apply it back you have to change partition size back to stock.
2 ) Download and extract the zip file
Download and extract the zip file to your SD-Card of the ZTE Blade so you can see a folder "image" on the SD-Card
SINCE IT MAKE NO SENSE TO CREATE FOR EVERY NIGHTLY A NEW TPT PLEASE READ POINT 8 HOW TO GET YOUR CM7 UPDATED .
IF THERE ARE NO SERIOUS CHANGES LIKE STABLES/GAPPS OR OTHERS THINGS I WILL NOT CREATE NEW TPTs. you can easily upgrade to lates by yourself.
**** REMEBER THAT NIGHTLIES CAN BE BROKEN AND SO NOT FULLY FUNCTIONAL ****
WBAW creates a lot of TPTs of nightlies in this topic. use them if you are in need of.
wbaw did new TPTs. Thanks a lot for this. all credits to him:

these TPTs are with old partition layout: 2MB Cache, 136MB System , 302MB Data.
CM7.02Nightly57 + CWM 18.104.22.168
best to use rommanager to do future upgrades.
Upgrade it form market and then upgrade clockwork.
AFTER FLASHING THIS TPT YOU CAN ONLY APPLY GEN2 ROMS like CM7.0.2 or nightly builds >50 or SwedishSpring Froyo 2.2 Rom!
If you would like to go back to GEN1 with CM 7.0.0 stable use wbaws TPT image:
BACKUP YOUR DATA! ALL IS GONE EXCEPT WHAT IS ON THE SD-CARD!
3) Shut down your phone
4) Switch phone on with voulme up key pressed.
Switch phone on with voulme up key pressed.
The Magic starts. you see some green writing. dont switch your phone off.
After 1-2 minutes your phone will reboot into CM7!
On some models of the Blade try holding menu + volume up + power.
5) restore your data
Remember not to restore system data with Titanium Backup (other tools affected as well) when you move from Android 2.2 to Android 2.3.3 like CM7.
Strange things can happen - just restore apps+data and contacts ,sms, calllists.
6) you are done.
To make CM7 more special and see the full power of CM7 I recommend the Regina 3D launcher.
It's a good idea to delete or rename the "image" folder on the SD-Card so you dont accidently apply this to your phone when you turn it on.
now you can apply any stable and nightly build of CM7 >50
so no need for doing a TPT again.
just download Nightly build to your SD-Card and apply it with ROM MANAGER APP or with ClockWorkMod.
advantage of doing this? you data stays. no wipe is required.
but keep in mind that if you get some strange effects a wipe may help.
SO IT MAKE NO SENSE TO INSTALL A TPT TO MOVE FROM ONE NIGHLTY/STABLE TO THE NEXT.
IF YOU LIKE TO MAKE A CLEAN INSTALL OF YOUR PHONE CHOOSE AND APPLY ONE OF THE TPTs THEN GO INTO CLOCKWORK. FORMAT /system APPLY NOW ANY GEN2 NIGHTLY/STABLE CM7 & GAPPS or OTHER GEN2 ROM.
YOU CAN ALSO USE THE ROMMANAGER APP TO FLASH A NEW NIGHTLY / STABLE AND UPDATE CLOCKWORKMOD.
you still can apply TPTs to your GEN2 Blade now if you upgrade it with this TPT method.
something goes wrong during TPT. dont panic
1) redownload file. check md5 if possible
2) format Sd-Card or use other SD-Card
3) extract it to Sd-Card
4) sim out of phone
5) do it again!!!
it will work!
TPT doesnt work. Its reported that some polish blades (may be others aswell) dont go into TPT mode.
check this topic please to get TPT working:
but be carefull! i did not try this it since i have a working blade but i imaging that you have to flash the GEN1 UK to get a working TPT GEN1 method for your blade. after this it should be possible to upgrade with TPT from here to CM7.
