Downloading it now, gonna extract it and see how it compares to the Orange Stock, I'm guessing it will be identical, as the manuals look the same as Orange provide...can't even hope that ZTE have dropped the ball and provided a Vanilla Stock ROM....or can we?

I think it's TPT (Total Phone Transfer) method for Skate. It can update radio firmware, change internal partitions, install new ROM etc. We have similar image.bin method for our gen2 ZTE Blades.

There's a tool called ztepack to unpack gen2 blade TPTs. There's also a windows tool. I'm not sure they'll work with this one, but it wont hurt to try. I'm downloading it now but that chinese server is terribly slow...

edit. And saying it wont hurt to try, I mean the unpacking part. Trying to modify this low level stuff can leave you with bricked device.

But it'll have a stock boot image, unlike the posted one from Paul, so OK to go back for warranty purposes I guess?

A tot image basically gives you the oppurtunity to unlock phone if you know how to.

Its possible but I personally can't do anything. Tillaz should be able to though.

It should allow somebody with ztepack & a hex editor, who knows what they're doing, to alter it to change the internal nand partition layout of the phone - to give you more room on /data for your apps & data. Like we did on the Blade.

Would that be the same NAND that we think the unlock mechanism may be hiding in? (that makes me sound like a n00b, but I'm an installer/tester, not a devPosted Image)

Ztepack seems to work fine. ZTE engineers were lazy again. ;) Or why change to different system if old one works.

I guess the ROM is the same? Few lines from build.prop:
ro.build.display.id=OUK_P743TV1.0.0B05
ro.build.version.release=2.3.4
ro.build.date=Wed Aug 31 17:09:24 CST 2011

ro.com.google.gmsversion=2.3_r5
ro.build.baseband_version=P743TB01
ro.build.software_version=OUK_P743TV1.0.0B05
ro.build.sw_internal_version=OUK_P743TV1.0.0B18

Here's also original clean boot.img in flashable .zip if someone wants to try it with the Orange ROM. I don't have a Skate to play with.

so thats a new kernel for the Skate / OMC...?
Any chance of progress to a TPT.zip to overwrite the sim locked nand and maybe change the partition sizes to something more usefull like with the Blade...

Great find! As said, this carries the best shot we have in unlocking.

That's should be clean boot.img from Orange stock ROM OUK_P743TV1.0.0B05 without the superboot part. I read somewhere that you don't have clean dump of that.

Changing partition sizes should be possible. It's also possible that sim lock is somewhere in that radio firmaware too. If someone wants to modify that image.bin, I think it's best to start with some easy stuff. e.g. replacing boot.img and recovery.img with images of clockworkmod, replacing system.img with empty image so it only flashes the firmware without the ROM. I don't have a Skate so I'm not even going to try that. I don't want to be held responsible for bricking someone else's device.

thanks Konstat,

we actually do have a clean rom of the locked Orange OMC and even a clean rom of an unlocked Skate!

what we need is a TpT file to flash the Skate nand with unlock and even better partitioning....

Has anyone used this? If so, what happened when you flashed it? If your phone was locked before, is it still locked afterwards, and vice versa if you started with an unlocked phone?

TPT Helper lets you easily repartition your ZTE phone, install a new ROM and for the Blade, convert to/from Gen 2. Available for Orange San Francisco/ZTE Blade, Orange Monte Carlo/ZTE Skate and Orange San Francisco II/T-Mobile Vivacity. https://market.andro...horas.tpthelper

TPTs and other apps
