I changed my ROM to the general 2.3.6 which I had downloaded from ZTE's official site. It worked well but I still could not unlock it. Then it turned out if I install the original ROM, then the phone can be unlocked with Furious-Gold.
So I thought I just start CWM and reinstall the ROM. Of course when I installed the general firmware, it reinstalled the recovery, so I had e3 recovery. It was kind of a problem because of turning off the script asserts. I could not manage to install CWM via command prompt (it told me it was installed but it still started e3). Never mind, I found a way to temporarily run CWM.
I succesfully installed my Virign-branded ROM with the temporary CWM, BUT: when I start the phone, it freezes at the ZTE logo.
What can I do with that? With e3 I cannot install any ROMs and ZTE's online updater tool (which works with FTM mode) says that there's no newer software for my device.
I have tried to wipe my phone, unsuccesfully. I have moved from the UK since then, but if it's the only option, I will send it back to Virgin for a software update.
Can you guys tell me something wise?
Thank you so much!
