Dont use ^^ think I might have uploaded the wrong files.


LOL, yeah I think you have. I has a slightly broken phone now. The good news is that FTM still works so I should be able to reflash with fixed files or an official update.

I've found the Vivacity and SanFranII updates on the ZTE ftp so I'm downloading them now.
Edit: newer versions that the shipped roms too! nice

Unlock_OSF2.zip (18.05 MB)http://www.multiupload.com/TWKP44A5AD

Unlock_VIVACITY.zip (18.04 MB)http://www.multiupload.com/ZXRBSG1JVI

Edit by Paul: DANGER! Using this may / will brick your device, proceed with extreme caution!

Edit by unrandomsam I don't think it will I did it much more carefully the second time (Not whilst doing something else and with the right files.). The dodgy link is gone afaik.


Edit from flibblesan: OSF2 unlock confirmed working, Vivacity unlock confirmed working by myself.

I've done that for both devices.. but I'm still wondering how to get partition.mbn out of that


The way to get partition.mbn is like this :

Half of the post is missing .... There is another step I have forgotten I think.

(But its unnecessary now because the UK update server has the correct files (DE ones are corrupt).

My vivacity isn't letting me flash anything to it now.. keeps failing when it tries to reboot the phone into download mode from ftm. Tried using QPST to flash and that's giving me errors saying it's unable to run the flasher.

Looks like the incorrect unlock zip sort of broke the phone. Oh well.

What about if you plug it in with battery out and both volume keys held. (Should go straight to download mode).

Failing it that you can use the V880 flasher to flash recovery and the rest of the files without anything working (Works using only download mode).

http://www.mediafire...m1wd4ktfkbd5amh

Use the entire directory from the stock rom thread that I just uploaded. (It will be able to be recovered).

Option 5 on Hedgepigdaniels blade unbrick thread

http://android.modac...ng-a-zte-blade/

(Ignore the warnings because they are not important as you will use QPST to restore the qcn file. Restoring the IMEI and wifi mac address)

Follow the Skate unlock instructions including the bit about backing up nvitems with QPST
but use those files instead.

What recovery have you got ?

Try fastbooting the roamer one and the stock tmobile one. (The key combo is different I think to what it was - power + home + vol+

(Its possible that oemsbl and recovery have to be matched and they are not).

There is something you can do with PSAS/Revskills as well.

No hard home button on this. Tried combinations of volume and power but doesn't appear to be any shortcut into fastboot.

OSF2 unlocked, courtesy of unrandomsam's OSF2 "Unlock_OSF2.zip" zip file.

Restored dumped NVitems qcn file to enable wifi to work, and all is great.

Much kudos to unrandomsam :)
