Yes it says something like copy system update image to ad card.


good, got an idea of making a suitable image.bin with clockwork recovery on it so we can dump the rom

there should be a README.txt explaining it in the zip, two options:

1. via adb on pc:

adb push install /data/local/
adb shell chmod 04755 /data/local/install
adb shell /data/local/install


turn wifi on+off

adb shell romdump

2. via terminal app on phone:

copy install file to sd card

cat /sdcard/install >/data/local/install
chmod 04755 /data/local/install
/data/local/install


turn wifi on+off

/system/bin/romdump

then the results should be in the romdump directory on your sd card.

lol poor you, being everyone's tester, you'll learn a fair bit though!

Will a custom rom effectively unlock it?

Just walked into store in livingston Scotland , they had none on display and no demos i just asked for one and they said we have them in the back of the shop.



Excellent, thanks! I live in Edinburgh, so if they don't have them in any of the Edinburgh stores I'll head out to Livingston. Was it in the Armadale shopping centre by any chance?

As far as i am aware no, rooting and installing roms etc is a different thing from a network lock. We will have to wait longer for the network unlock.

have you seen the unboxing video? its a bigger blade, that's it. i think a blade running cm7 and overclocked a little is 90% of what a skate is.

£160 would be better spent on an unlocked huawei u8800 with arm7

Ur tempting me on to other devices now Posted ImagePosted Image

I watched the unboxing...and like all unboxing vids it made me want one. I really think ZTE missed a trick in not just make the Skate 1Ghz from the get go.

I think alot of people are missing the point this is not a blade it's better i like the blade but having been using this for a day surfing is so much better just because of the size of the screen. People need to start thinking about what it has instead of what it has not remember you are getting this from between 140-160 new with a year guarantee it's not the fastest phone or with the latest
cpu but if you want that you can have it just go to the orange shop or any other and hand over your five hundred pound and you can have it.
