The GB_BP_P743V1.0.0B04.zip needs to be installed using the FTM flash tool . If you use this method make sure to write down your mac address as it will probably revert to 11 22 33 etc. Then you'll have to make a back up using the Qualcomm software downloader edit it with a hex editor etc see pinned topics and the excellent tutorials that cover all these issues.GB_BP_P743V1.0.0B01.zip can be installed via clockworkmod and is virtually identical apart from a different bootscreen and it has facebook pre-installed. Again any issues make sure you read the tutorials thoroughly.

Thanks so much bloomsan. I've been trying to load my OMC with GB_BP_P743V1.0.0B0x.zip (did not realise that there are 2 versions ! and that some can be done by CW and others by FTM).

From what you say GB_BP_P743V1.0.0B01.zip can be installed by Clockwork (with NO MAC address problems) and B04 must be installed by FTM (giving MAC address problems).
Where can I find/download GB_BP_P743V1.0.0B01.zip (looked in this thread and could only find B04).

Also refer to Post #45 by xiaoyaoswim (26dec11) - To run the FTM flash tool will cause loss of your NVitems. So if you want flash stock ROMs by the FTM flasher, you will have to back up a qcn file by QPST beforehand and then restore it after using FTM flasher.

I've been trying to load my OMC with a Stock ROM for a few weeks and after Unlocking OMC have spent my time sifting through the miles of posts that lead me from one place to another. Hopefully the issue of using FTM/Clockwork is settled. Do you have any more tips for my endeavour.

PS: Noticed that the contents of some Stock ROM ZIP files contain different number of files er. 3 or 16 files. Does this give an indication how they can be used eg. by CW of by FTM ?
3x - boot.img, recovery.img, system.img

16x - boot.img, recovery.img, system.img, amss.mbn, amsshd.mbn, appsboot.mbn, appsboothd.mbn, cefs.mbn, dest-10.ini, oemsbl.mbn, oemsblhd.mbn, partition.mbn, partition_zte.mbn, qcsbl.mbn, qcsblhd_cfgdata.mbn, recovery.img, splash.img

PPS: If you install CW do you loose FTM and if so can you get back FTM ?

Thanks a million.

You can download it from here : http://www1422.megau...43V1.0.0B01.zip Remember you will have to install clockworkmod first as per tutorial. Remember to follow Wacky.ddw's excellent tutorial here : http://android.modac...for-beginners/. Copy rom onto your sdcard . Basically install clockworkmod as per tutorial boot into clockworkmod, wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache partition, advanced > wipe dalvik cache, install zip from sdcard, choose zip from sdcard and reboot. Please read the tutorial thoroughly.

The zip contains 2 folders META-INF,system & boot.img and recovery.img. Looking at some of the Roms on my computer all the ones flashable by CWM seem to have this structure. You do lose FTM mode when you install CWM and have to install or re-install the stockrom from scratch.

@bloomsan

Just wanted to let you know that by your clear advice/instructions I managed to load GB_BP_P743V1.0.0B01.zip
using ClockWorkMod to my OMC - and its working great.

The only surprise was that when installing ClockWork I was asked to install android_winusb.inf (remember if using XP then XP version) and winusbcoinstaller2.dll - even though these were previously installed when unlocking.

Thanks again bloomsan.

Hi! I need advice help... I have an original ZTE Skate on Generic P743V1.0.0B19. I am sick and tired of low speed, crashing quits and reboots... :( Originally there was B15 and it was much worse... I have no opportunity of getting a PC (i'm on a trip now, so i have no CWM root) i flashed it by a bin file. I need a lot a stable, quick, w/o additional software ROM by a single bin file. Please, please someone help me to get happiness... ;)

As a practice exercise and to see how it looks and behave, I am trying to install Skate stock rom GB_BP_P743V1.0.0B01 that I downloaded on my phone via CWM. I have performed all the necessary wipes, but I am getting this error message:

"Finding update package …
Opening update package …
E: Can't open /sdcard/update.zip
(No such file or directory)
Installation aborted"

I am confused. Does this mean that the zip file is not actually on the sdcard, or do I need the 'previous version' to GB_BP_P743V1.0.0B01?

It is not clear to me how to actually get the stuff on the sdcard in any event, so I would welcome some instruction.

Thanks people.
