If you cannot click the button it's because the pc is not detecting your zte correctly. A friend flashed it for me and as far as I remember he had the same problem and solve it by modifying the .bin file with the imei number of the phone. I don't know how he did it, I'm sorry I cannot give you more specific details.

ive found this in directions in some chienies site with google tranlate:1, unpack / pack U880 bin file
2, modify the partition size of the package
3, when the unlocked bootloader package access permissions and ramdisk (ramdisk permission applies only to version 2.3 bin)
4, convert bmp file to logo.img file
How to use:
1, the bin file to program the same directory, rename U880.bin
2, select the corresponding version of the bin file
3, click on "unpack U880.bin" button, extracted from the bin logo.img, ramdisk.img, recovery.img, system.img, data.img file
4 (Optional) Modify the partition size and other options??
5 (Optional) Click the "Generate logo.img" button to select the bmp file or bmp file drag the button to generate a new logo.img file to modify
6 (Optional) Modify the partition contents of the file, such as the replacement recovery, modify system.img, then replace the img file under the program directory, or check the "custom partition data" after setting the new img files
7, click on "packaged U880.new.bin" button, according to the relevant options and the corresponding img file read U880.bin repackage U880.new.bin file

Me too, already found a dozen of these flasher programs but none of them see to work :S.

On chinese forums I also found dozens of ROMS but since the flash programs don't run, I can't do anything ='(.

How come I always end up with a "load .dll failed" error?

I finally found how to get this working.

First of all, go to the official site of ZTE and download the restore version of this device.
http://www.zte.com.c...607_237277.html

Unzip the file and install the drivers (it's a small program inside one of the folders). When the setup says "complete", restart the PC.

Once restarted, go to this link: http://bbs.lewaos.com/learn-u880.html. Open a new tab and go to google on this one. You should now
have a tab with the chinese site and one with google. Copy and paste the link in google and click on translate, this way you can view
the site in whatever language you want. Still you have to download the files on the chinese tab, not the translated one.

Download the upgrade package.

Unzip the file to the desktop so you have the "setup" folder standing right on the desktop, not inside another folder.
(Apparently this is very important, the flash tool included didn't work for me as long as the setup folder wasn't taken
out of the first folder on the desktop).

You should now manage to open the included flash tool.

When it's open, we still need to download an appropriate firmware file. Go to this site and download the zip file.
http://depositfiles....files/nmbn6wnkq.

With the flash tool running on your computer, plug in the dead phone (without battery) while holding the (+) button on the right side.
If the tool can find your phone, some characters should change in the tool. Click the upper button and navigate to the .bin file in the
firmware folder we just downloaded.

Now click the second button and watch the magic happen :-).

Hi guys

I know that it sucks that are are so few ROMs out there for us non-Chinese people.
However, google translator is our friend :).

After browsing through many many Chinese sites, I finally found some forums with a lot of ROMS that come
with everything you need (even Gapps). It's always a .rar file with inside a flasher tool and a bin file.

Hello,

I recently bought a zte t u880 here in China and rooted with SuperOneClick, which seemed to work. After that I flashed the ROM zip file from solidchips (here) with RomManager. It seemed to install OK but many things don't work (doesn't recognize SIM, no USB) so the phone is useless. I tried yesterday to follow some of the newer posts about flashing a newer ROM with Windows but was not able to get it to work - I could never get Windows to recognize the phone via USB, which I think is related to the fact that I can't connect the phone to a computer via USB even when it is on normally.

Any help would be greatly appreciated (please explained at a level of Android for Dummies). I saw that .bin files can also be flashed from SD card but I don't know how to do that.

thanks,

Good to you ...
Got problems after installing the CWM 4.0.1.2:
1. phone is not loaded on the screen saver.
2. restoring from backup does not occur
3. install zip from sd not not worked - a worm crawling, but after a 75-80% cut off,and at the end tells OK! but not loaded.
4. flasher from the bin does not press the second button, but the connection of the bodyand is reflected in some other set of characters.

Is there a common "root" problems? How to "uproot"?

metalcored00d, I tried your instructions on two PCs - I even did a clean reinstall of Windows on one in case there was some kind of driver conflict.

The flashing program does detect the phone when it is plugged in, and the characters change, but I still can't click the flash button. On the phone, part of the screen turns from the blue flash screen to what I can best describe as resembling TV static.

Any ideas? Right now my phone is a brick, I loaded recovery and tried to load a zip file ROM from another post, which resulted in it not booting. I can get in recovery or flash mode, but nothing I flash in recovery boots, and as described above flash mode won't work either.

$15 PayPal to anyone who can get me going with a stable 2.3 rom and Gapps!

Hey there, my phone also shows a weird "tv static screen". Is your computer 32bit? Because I failed to do it on no matter what kind of 64bit pc. Also, I'm on mac, so I used Virtualbox to install a 32bit windows XP.
Using that virtual pc, I did exactly what I wrote down here.

I opened the flash program. Then I insert the phone holding the (+) button. Then I let virtualbox take over the phone. Sometimes I had to reconnect my phone two times in virtualbox before the flashtool lets me click the button.

Hold on, don't give up and best of luck!

HI to all.
Quite long and confusing to read all the 7 pages. Hope you could give me some help to understand what's the best way to root and flash my ZTE T-U880.
I'm quite new on Android and on smartphone hacking topics.

So, hope someone could create a new post (at the end or at the beginning of this thread) in order to summarize the most effective steps to get the best result, including all the files to download.
Hope you could help, thank you so much,
regards.
