Johnny hung's “TWM_Fantastic_T3_Root_Packge.rar” is offline, does anyone still have it? He uploaded a second version on page 9 with the WIFI fix inside, but the megaupload site says its temporarily unavailable.


Can someone please upload it again. Not the one on page 8, the new version on page 9.


Thanks

I've just managed to Unlock my OMC after quite a battle with Drivers.
My next goal is to install the ZTE Stock ROM GB_BP_P743V1.0.0B04

The way I understand it you need to have ClockWork installed and have found reference to TWM_Fantastic_T3_Root_Packge. From this package I would need to run

* Install_CWM_recovery.bat then
* install _Android2.3.4_root.bat (as I now have Orange 2.3.4).

Could someone conform these steps and suggest the next steps towards installing ZTE Stock ROM GB_BP_P743V1.0.0B04.

Thanks

I'm confused - I still have original Orange (I've just unlocked so far). In Post #1 its stated:

* Superboot for OUK_P743TV1.0.0B05 - DOWNLOAD (Mediafire Pro) - MD5: 24866507d5b2819a2369f69a5783882d

Do I use the above ? or do I root using TWM_Fantastic_T3_Root_Packge and use ONLY run Install_CWM_recovery.bat (and leave out step Install _Android2.3.4_root.bat). Then run Superboot for OUK_P743TV1.0.0B05 - DOWNLOAD

Thanks

If you want to install ZTE's Skate stock rom (on Android 2.3.5) and you don't have Clockwork Mod installed already you'll need to install Clockwork mod, flash the rom, then run the Install_Android2.3.5_root.bat file.


While it's not suggested in the guides here, it is best to then reflash the original boot.img back to the phone. You will still have root and you'll keep all your Superuser settings/su binary updates after you turn the phone off.

So if I understand you well to upgrade from original Orange 2.3.4 to ZTE Stock that is at 2.3.5 I need to do the following:

* Download TWM_Fantastic_T3_Root_Packge
* Download the ZTE Stock ROM
* Install Clockwork Mod (from TWM_F_T3_R_P)
* Flash the ZTE Stock ROM (by placing ZIP file onto SD card ???)
* Run Install_Android2.3.5_root.bat (from TWM_F_T3_R_P) - presumably as ZTE ROM is 2.3.5

You mention to reflash the original boot.img. Where can I get the BOOT.IMG file and how is it flashed.

I think I'm in the wrong thread. Is there another more applicable thread.

Thanks again.

If you're downloading the stock rom from the stock rom sticky thread, you'll have to convert it to a compatible image.bin format using THIS tool, which you would then place in a folder on your SD card called "image". You then turn the phone off and turn it back on again while holding VOLUME UP and MENU.

That will perform a tpt (Total Phone Transfer) and it will restart with the ZTE stock rom.

When you go to convert the file to "image.bin" have a look inside that folder, there will be a boot.img file in there. It might simply just show "boot" for you. Copy this somewhere.
For ease of use, download the link on the opening post. Extract it, and go into it and right click on "install-superboot-windows" and select edit. Delete the one word "superboot" and one of the full stops. Save this and then drop the boot.img you copied earlier into the same folder. Now run the new script and it should copy the original boot.img over.



The script you edited should now look like this:
adb-windows.exe reboot bootloader 
fastboot-windows.exe flash boot boot.img
fastboot-windows.exe reboot

Windows will put it on one line. so don't worry about the spacing.

Thanks JCMYALL. Will give it a go. Will play about with theGen2_TPT.zip tool offline to get to know it. BTW the Gen2_TPT.zip is meant for ZTE Blade/Orange San Francisco - is it compatible with Orange Monte Carlo ?

If you get ADB working you can flash clockworkmod recovery, then i can give you can flash a other ROM or i can give you a package that you can flash trough clockworkmod for root access.

Cant you do it on a friends computer?
