Have tried installing Unofficial Modaco CWM in this thread, which did not work. CMD runs, but then nothing happens, it just says: waiting for device (my phone never even reboots).
I was thinking about trying TPT Helper next (I've already got the final Atomic Mod on my SD card), but the thing that stops me is that my build number on the new phone is OUK_P743TV1.0.0B08. I don't even know if this is relevant, but I'm worried I will mess up my phone and I'll be stuck without any method of restoring a backup. I can't find a stock rom with this build version anyway. I know people say it is impossible to 'brick' a Skate, but does this still apply to a later model?
Can anyone suggest easiest/safest method please? Or point me in the right direction? I'd prefer to have CWM, but at the moment I'd just be happy just to have root access and lose the Orange crap, but I've tried a couple of rooting apps and SuperOneClick, but nothing works for some reason.
Incidentally, it's worth knowing that as of Sept. 1st, Orange are now dealing with all warranty claims themselves. My phone is over 9 months old, I had increasing dust under the screen, but was given the "Over 6 months old? then you'll need to contact ZTE" crap for a month, until yesterday... I rang up again and without any quibbling whatsoever I got a brand new phone via courier this morning.
Thanks for reading.
