The top one is the firmware, the bottom one is the windows driver for the phone.

If you have CWM it can't be used to flash the update according to the text in red here: http://www.modaco.co...or-zte-blade-v/

 

You'd need to restore the stock recovery.  Which is why I can;t be bothered just yet.  There's no change log and I have nothing wrong I need fixed.  Think I'm going to take an if it ain't broke don't fix it approach here!

 

Here's a mirror anyway for ZTE's slow server: http://www.mediafire...zn38l515ig4e1b9

The zip contains the instructions (from a stock phone) and the update.zip

There's no changelog for it that I can find.  And it says UK in the file name and the link is to support for the Virgin (UK) Blade.  Presumably they'd have a different support page somewhere for other versions of the phone?

 

You can choose your country and phone from here: http://www.ztedevice...port/index.html

Off the top of my head, I don't know how to do that.  I've not looked into how easy or difficult it is to learn how to do it.  It would be handy though

I spose the simplest way would be to install it on a stock phone, install CWM and use the create image option in CWM?  My housemates is still stock but I'm away for a few days so couldn't do it until next week even if he agreed to it.

 install CWM and use the create image option in CWM?

Oh, our CWM doesn't have this option. :(

 

I'm guessing until I work out how to create an update.zip, I can upload the nandroid (data is wiped) and people can advanced restore system and boot?

OK, here's a nandroid of a data wiped install of firmware 2.1 (with root): http://www.mediafire...x1qqueu2h2fnv2z

 

To upgrade to 2.1 without wiping using CWM:

If you've swapped your SD card, download this CWM installer to re-swap it after updating the rom: http://blade.windows...dev-swap-sd.zip

Unrar the nandroid into your clockwordmod\backup folder on your sd card

boot into recovery

use advanced restore from the backup and restore menu

restore boot and system

If you swapped the SD, use the install from sd card option to install swap-sd.zip

reboot the phone

 

 

If anyone knows how to turn this into an update.zip before I have chance to learn how to do it then please do. :)
