Well I say awesome, but I can't actually get it to work! I want a little more than the 160 system I currently have for ICS.
if I create a TPT of 160 system and 2mb cache then it's fine. If I try and create a different system size (I've tried 165, 170, 175, 180) and do check image directory it lists appsboot.mbn and partition_zte.mbn as no match on the md5 check.

Using a gen 1 Blade TPT'd to gen 2 (which I selected as the model on first use)

What am I doing wrong?


You don't need to use the check image option after making a TPT with custom partition sizes. That option downloads the files, checks the md5sums and then edits those 2 to give the sizes you wanted. As they have been changed, the md5sums are different from those listed in the nandroid.md5 file, so they won't match anymore if you use check image. Once it tells you the TPT has been built, you can just start it from there.

That worked fine thanks! 170mb now. The only reason I even used that check is because it told me too when I attempted to start the tpt from within the rom and I thought ooh that sounds a good idea. :D

my volume keys don't work. using your app, can I TPT from a CM7 rom? or does it only work with ZTE roms?
also for the same reason, I need touch recovery (which can be found here). can I replace the recovery.img found in the "image" folder with the touch one and it will be okay?

It only works on ZTE based roms like Swedish Snow. You can replace the recovery.img manually and it should be fine yeah.

Sorry, but this programme doesn't work for me.
I've made custom tpt (2/140/299) and in tpt mode it stopped at:
load /mmc1/image/qosblhd_cfgdata.mbn
I had to remove battery and install from other image folder.





Same problem . . . not work for me . . . i had try stock 220/162/37 . . . freeze at load /mmc1/image/qosblhd_cfgdata.mbn
when i only upload image folder on sd card and use menu+power+volume+ phone was normally start . . . without green text

Some phones seem to have a problem with the custom TPT files. I will try changing them for others that may work better in the next release.

I have been trying to use a custom partition with 200 system 2 cache for my gen 1->(TPT)->gen 2 upgraded blade.

The TPT gets built, image directory checks out ok, but rebooting from the app, or manually by holding + and menu, both result in the green android logo, i.e. the TPT doesn't start.

I'm running Tilals coldfusion.

Is there anything i'm doing wrong?

Thanks

Same problem here... Made 165MB /system (2MB /cache, 274MB /data). It is an Orange San Francisco, a bit more than a year old, TFT model, bought used (so, I don't know what the previous owner did to it, received it like this).
Blade Checker reported:

European Blade (512MB RAM) detected

Stock/Windows Upgraded Gen 2 Phone detected

Use image.bin style TPTs

Current partition sizes:

System: 136MB
Data: 302MB
Cache: 2MB

My settings in the TPT Helper:

Phone Type: ZTE Blade/Orange San Francisco
Blade Gen: Stock Gen 2/3/Windows Upgraded Gen 2
ZTE Blade Type: European ZTE Blade
Phone Type: Orange San Francisco 2 (selected by default, didn't ask me)

I have probably given too much info, but I have no idea if this is due to the user error, or if it's something else. Being a second owner sometimes sucks...

if it is Orange San Francisco it's stock Gen 1 unless upgraded with windows flasher - and then the partitions are not as they used to be. check your current partition size.

I made 190sys 2cache and the rest data using this wonderful tool, BUT I don't have vol keys so I had to install a genuine ZTE ROM (old wbaw's GSF) and start the TPT from there. you should try it.

Hopefully the new files in the next version will fix this.

Try changing the second setting to TPT Upgraded Gen 2, then making the TPT again. Some of the very first Gen 1 to Gen 2 TPTs used an old layout, so they show up as stock Gen 2 when they are not, this might be the case here.

I was really tired last night when I wrote, so I somehow skipped your previous answer (general problem with some Blades, will be fixed in the next update).

Won't this brick my device if I choose the wrong one? Even if it does, I will unbrick it, but have to ask. The TPT size that I had was offered when I chose Stock/Windows upgraded.

Anyhow, before that I have to figure out how to force it to even enter the TPT - was a bit push me pull you the first time around, now it won't enter either TPT or CWM (except from the OS menu). I have installed the Swedish Snow in order to be able to run it from the TPT Helper, but to no avail, it just won't do a thing.

EDIT: My bad, tried what you suggested, worked like a charm! And my fear of bricking was for nothing :)

The others who have problems with freezes on load /mmc1/image/qosblhd_cfgdata.mbn should try to use the same logic, and maybe try to change their settings.

Thanks!

The two TPT types (image.bin and Gen 1 to Gen 2) are incompatible. If you are trying to use the wrong one, then like you experienced, it won't even start.

I think the freezing on load /mmc1/image/qcsblhd_cfdata.mbn is a different issue. Some phones don't seem to like that version of the files (but it works fine on both that I tried it on). There are newer files that do seem to work, so when I get time to update it, I will change it to use them instead.

It did run. Twice. And I did get the freezing on load /mmc1/image/qcsblhd_cfdata.mbn. After that, it didn't want to start at all. That is what I'm saying, and it may well turn out that I am not the only one making this mistake. I am just the first one to remember to overload you with the data :)

If you're trying to install ICS, they should already have enough space on the system partition.

Hi all,

Sorry for the probably idiot question, but I'm quite a newbie on flashing ROMs for my ZTE and want to avoid making mistakes...

I would like to flash "Swedish Snow RLS7 (Android 2.3.5) " on my ZTE Blade, European GEN1.

My understanding is that this ROM being GEN2, I first need to use TPT for upgrading it to GEN2.

What are the steps I should take on TPT ? Is there a way to directly upgrade to GEN2 and flash the ROM, or is this a 2 steps process ? Where should I put the downloaded ROM (on my SD?) and how do I get TPT to install this one ?

I didn't really find a step-by-step guide for newbies on this forum...

Thanks a lot for your answers

***EDIT - for the record.. sometimes it helps to talk - i made the new TPT for a GEN 1 - after finding a wiki on it****
***rule that applies to me... as it was a GEN 1 device - that had been TPT'd to Gen 2, i would still need a Gen 1 TPT***

Hi, i hope that someone can help me out?
I have a zte blade OLED
Blade Checker Says:
European Blade (512MB RAM) detected
TPT Upgraded Gen 2 Phone detected
Use Gen 1 style TPTs
Current Partition sizes:
System : 160 MB
Data : 294 MB
Cache : 2MB

Now.. the ICS rom i want to upgrade to is
[ICS] [CM9] [4.0.4] ColdFusionX for the ZTE Blade [ROM] [UPDATED - 09/05]
from searching through threads ive found that people have suggested System size of 200MB - 220MB

So following advise i found your other tool
TPT Helper
Detects Blade
Detects European Blade
Now asks for Blade Gen...

By stock, my phone was a Gen1 - so i select "other" from the list

Stock Gen2
Stock Gen3
Other
Unknown

Then it asks:
Gen 1
Stock Gen 2
TPT upgraded Gen 2
Windows Upgraded Gen 2
Stock Gen 3
TPT upgraded Gen 3
Windows upgraded Gen 3
Unknown


here i dont know which option to choose as "Blade checker Says"
TPT Upgraded Gen 2 Phone detected
Use Gen 1 style TPTs

so from the 2 options do i choose?

TPT Upgraded Gen 2 Phone detected
TPT upgraded Gen 2

OR

Use Gen 1 style TPTs
Gen 1

So the other bit would be i set System to

Cache to what? 2MB (for ics?)
System to : 220 (for ics?)
System : 160 MB
Data : (will be autoset by remainder)

please advise?

Cheers and thanks for reading!
