... flashed the leaked ZTE 2.2 rom. Later tried to go to the official Optus rom, and couldn't, as I was no longer running an "official" Optus tab.
Anyway, I figured the upgrade was a relatively pain-free process, so thought I would have a crack at this one.
Well, things didn't exactly go according to plan.
Copied the 2011-05-21 rom onto SD, booted into recovery, and flashed the rom. All seemed to go according to plan, then used the recovery menu to reboot the tab.
Now, I am stuck on the animated droid-on-a-skateboard - the animation just keeps looping.
I have tried removing the battery and rebooting, and the same thing.
Hi CS ,
Yeah same boat.. leaked ZTE Rom .. cant get back to official optus rom.. Anyhow..
So my install of this went a little better than yours by the sounds of things ... here is what i did ..
i copied the 2011-05-21 zip file onto SD , as well as the 'one touch recovery' .apk mentioned earlier in this thread.. (dropped both the 'market' zips on there too while i was at it)
installed the apk , ran it , used the recovery console to 'install zip from SD' and THEN , before rebooting
, i also did the 'return to factory defaults - cleanse all user data' option in the recovery console... (or whatever it is correctly called) , THEN rebooted... yes, on initial boot , it took a little while to fire up ..a few anxious minutes, but eventually arrived at desktop & initial setup... oh and kk's later 'market' zip seems to work ok for me .. (you go back into recovery and 'install zip from SD' in the same way ...)
Now, a couple of things i have noted.. (only been running a couple of hours..)
1. one of the widgets on homepage gives 'failed to run' .. i guess its the google search widget , certainly in the same spot.. i ended up deleting it .. no great loss.
2. the Optus APN's were incorrect for my prepaid sim , took a bit of googling to find out i needed to change APN=internet to APN=preconnect
3. the deault 'email' app fails to correctly setup my gmail account ...'Cannot connect to server , Expected String, none found' the gmail app , however, works perfectly fine ...
Does anyone know how to get rid of that 'yuck' white ZTE splash screen at startup ? even a plain black screen would be better than that .. (or dare i say it , the default 'optus' one was nicer..)
