Common Problems / Questions / FAQ

This is a guide to cover most of the common problems.

It contains some words like ROM and Build.props and RECOVERY

To get a better understanding of what these mean see the post http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...-for-new-users/

This is a big post; you can use the "search this thread" facility near the bottom left of the page.

You can also use your Browsers find on page feature to help you navigate around (CTRL + F).

Please try not to start new Threads - look and search for existing ones along your subject and reply to them

Also if you can't find what you need here - use the forum search

and also be sure to Restrict the search to the ZTE Blade Forum and try the Show results as posts and Search titles only.

Also changing the sort order to Most Repiles will help.

Finally you can always resort to google with a search like Blue Tint site:android.modaco.com/content/zte-blade-blade-modaco-com example

I want to install a Custom ROM but don't know what to do

There is a Comprehensive guide here
http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...and-other-roms/

I want to know whet generation of phone I have [GEN1] or [GEN2]

There are now 2 Generations of the ZTE-BLADE device.

Each have a different style memory layout.

[GEN1] BLADES use the baseband of
0x02A00000
and can use all of the ROMS made

[GEN2] BLADES use the baseband of
0x02600000

Trying to install a GEN1 ROM onto a GEN2 device will brick it.

GEN1 devices can be recovered with a TPT - we don't have a TPT for a GEN2 device (yet)

How to find out what BLADE you have (GEN1 or GEN2)

You need tom install this app
Ask Mr Pigfish

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.apedroid.pigfish

http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...ask-mr-pigfish/

When you run the APP the first line will be

Mr.Pigfish says you have a Gen1 model

The Custom ROM wont Boot Properly

Gets Stuck at the Animated/non-animated boot screen.

This can be because of a few things

  • You have installed a new ROM and need to clear you cache and factory reset

  • You installed a Theme or patch without letting the new Custom ROM boot first

  • The ROM you flashed was damaged when downloading - check with md4sum - re-download and re-flash

  • Your SD card is in a very bad state

  • Your SIM has a pin card (effects some of the early 2.2)



    I Want to send my Phone back to the Operator - how do I make it back to stock?

    The best way to do this is to run a TPT which has been made for your operator's original ROM.

    A TPT that is built to do this restores the phone to exactly as it comes out of the factory

    This includes BOOT, RECOVERY and SYSTEM partitions. The DATA and CACHE are also wiped.

    Here is a Link to a TPT designed for Orange UK Phones

    http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...-2011-oled-tft/

    Here is a Link to a TPT for Hungarian Phones

    http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...vices-to-512mb/



    I Installed Superboot on a Non OLED device and now my screen is Tinted BLUE and I cannot wake the screen after it sleeps

    Install a Boot and ROM that supports TFT
    http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...-on-tft-device/

    If this doesnt work try the TPT method of install
    http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...and-other-roms/

    Here is a good example of it fixing a user that ran superboot

    http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...rooting-solved/



    I can not get into Recovery (clockwork)

    Make sure you are pressing (and holding) the Volume Down button (-)

    If you Just see some large text of FTM then you have not installed a Custom Recovery Image yet




    Phone cannot READ/Mount SD Card

    • SD Card is Damaged

    • Card is not formatted correctly
      http://www.partitionwizard.com/download.html
      Free Download -
      MiniTool Partition Wizard

    • Card not Seated correctly in Holder

    • The Card needs cleaning : take it out and carefully clean it with alcohol (and a cotton bud?)



      Fastboot can not Install Clockwork (or RA_Recovery)

      • If you get waiting for device

        Check USB debugging is on

        On windows check drivers
        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...a-win7-x86-x64/

        On others, check your running as root and try other USB ports/ cables

        Try using ADB Wireless from the market
        http://www.appbrain.com/app/adbwireless-(w....es.adbWireless


      • If you get "writing 'recovery': FAILED (status read failed (Protocol error)) android" change the usb cable, and try another USB port.
      • I want to get rid of the Orange apps but don't feel comfortable installing a ROM

        This is possible, you gain root on the device, then use tools to remove the apps

        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...-san-francisco/

        My Device only has 256MB of RAM

        Some device can be Unlocked to 512MB, this will mean a full reset of the Phone

        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...vices-to-512mb/

        Have I got TFT or OLED?

        Well if you have a UK device you may have OLED

        If you purcashed it in 2011 you almost certainly have TFT

        Both are good- but having a TFT device means that you must avoid non-TFT compatibe ROMS - All new ROMs are TFT friendly

        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...ft-how-to-tell/

        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...son-and-review/

        On some ROMS you can use the Dialer to find out

        Dial *983*24474636# in the dialer.

        Then read here
        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...n-your-sanfran/

        On the Stock Orange ROM

        Devices that have TFT Screens have the build Number OUK_P729BV1.0.0B08 (OLED can have this buid also - but rarely)

        Devices that have OLED Screens have the build Number OUK_P729BV1.0.0B05

        The build Number can be found in - Settings | About Phone | Build Number

        How can I keep my apps and settings when I install a new ROM?

        Before
        installing a new ROM you can use
        Titanium Backup
        to backup all apps you have installed.

        After the new ROM has been installed you can restore the apps plus their data (to keep your Angry Birds progress and scores, for example).

        The
        paid-for version of Titanium Backup
        allows you backup and then restore many/all apps with the batch command to save time reinstalling each app individually.

        In general, system settings should
        not
        be restored on a new ROM.

        Restoring them can undo the effect of wiping data/restoring to factory settings before you flashed the new ROM and you run the risk of incompatible settings causing forced closure of system apps or, even worse, random reboots of the phone.

        Contacts can be restored automatically (and safely) by syncing with your gmail account (settings->accounts & sync and turn on both sync options) - you need to do this in your old ROM so the data is in place before you install the new ROM.

        Many people have reported that SMSs can be restored safely between most ROMs with Titanium Backup, but other system settings, e.g. wireless access points, may cause problems that may require the ROM to be reflashed.

        In all cases you should always use Nandroid backup in Clockwork to save the state and settings of your previous ROM which will easily allow you to return to a working state of your previous ROM in case things go wrong.

        How do I remove a custom theme I installed on any ROM, without factory reset?

        Simply Re-flash the original ROM over the top in Clockwork.

        I want to install a ROM, but remove some of the included APPs

        Simply open the ZIP file you downloaded and browse to /system/app

        Then remove the APPS you don't want - be careful.

        Orange SIM card will not make calls, other networks SIM cards work

        The phone,
        as delivered by Courier
        is barred from OrangeUK's own network until "activated"

        If you buy your phone from an Orange shop they are activated (unbarred from the Orange network) and handed to the purchaser.

        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...ims-not-working

        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...san-fran/"

        Phone won't boot - only vibrates when I press power

        When you try to turn the phone on with the power button you just feeling a quick succession of vibrations.

        This means there is not enough power in the battery to boot.

        Make sure your phone is plugged into the Adapter and is using the supplied USB cable.

        Wifi Keeps dropping

        On 2.1 and leaked 2.2 ROMS - wifi is a real problem.

        There are many different work-rounds; however now the kernel source for 2.2 is released - new ROMS do not have this problem.

        Look in the guide
        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...and-other-roms/
        for ROMS that have a source kernel.

        Lots of threads

        http://android.modaco.com/content/forum/318850/wifi-issue/

        http://android.modaco.com/content/forum/32...-san-francisco/

        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...els-fixed-wifi/

        Phone wont turn on

        It just Buzzes and red light on back button

        Try charging with another cable - your phone is out of battery

        My Battery isn't performing well - how can I recalibrate it

        There is a good post on this

        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...bration-protip/

        Not connecting to 3G/ Cant get Data/ Cant send MMS

        If you cannot get data over 2g/3g then your APN setting may be wrong - see
        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...work-providers/

        You edit the APN's in Setting / Wireless & Network Settings / Mobile Network settings / GSM/UMTS Options / Access Point Names /

        then click the phones MENU button (hard button) then choose Add APN.

        Also check your SIM is 3G

        See the Error SIM Network unlock PIN / I Want to Unlock the Phone

        Then the ROM you have flashed was not made for your SIM and you need to generate an unlock code so the phone can be used with ANY SIM

        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...-and-zte-blade/

        I am trying to unlock the phone, how do I get to the enter code screen

        You can only see this screen by putting in a SIM that is not the same as the ROM you have expects

        So if you have a Orange TFT device that is on the standard (stock) ROM, you will need a SIM that is not Orange (Virgin/TMobile)

        Once you insert a SIM that is not unlocked you get the ENTER code screen

        Wont Read Any SIM Cards

        Thickening the SIM with layers of tape (on the non useful side) has proven to work

        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...d-any-sim-card/

        Cant make outgoing calls when Wifi is ON

        The icon on the the top bar shows 4 reception bars gets a small x on it, the red led flashes and outgoing calls cannot be made.

        Switched to airplane mode and back returns the signal - it only ever does it when wifi is on.

        This is probably because you are running one of the leaked Chinese beta kernels.

        Running a ROM that has a new 2.2 source Kernel will fix this.

        What is an MD5

        MD5sum is a way of checking that the file you have downloaded has not been corrupted in any way.

        when you run the MD5sum command against a files the response is the files "fingerprint".

        If this differs from the expected MD5, then you need to re-download the file.

        MD5 can be checked directly on the device by using a file manager like astro - if you look at the details of a file an MD5 is generated

        Windows

        Get your md5sum utility from:
        http://www.md5summer.org/md5sum.zip
        (COMMAND LINE VERSION)

        Extract this Zip file contents and put them into the folder you want to run the command in.

        I need to use a Proxy server

        On Froyo 2.2 you can use Transproxy

        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...-the-zte-blade/

        Sound goes off on the FM Radio

        A Far better app has been developed

        Lost access to some operator services

        Your opertaor may provide services and filter them by the useragent in your browser

        this is adjusted in the build.props

        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...-rom-flb-froyo/

        I want to change the files in the system partition

        To do this you can use ADB to modify files

        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...-prop-with-adb/

        I Used Factory Reset now my Phone wont boot

        Custom ROM resets are best done in clockwork - however you may have problems with Unsigned Themes

        If you have a theme Installed, you may need to re-install the Original ROM over the top to get it to boot.

        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...-factory-reset/

        I don't know which ROM is for me

        There is a section in the Guide that details all the current ROMS
        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...and-other-roms/

        Help I have forgotton my android password.

        You can use ADB to reset it.

        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...droid-password/

        I want to change how my phone's screen looks like / Theme my phone

        In any ROM you can change your background (click the MENU hard button when in the home screen).

        However some custom ROMs have themes made for them.

        There is a whole section on themes for the ZTE Blade - However the most themes are specifically matched to a single or a few ROM's.

        The Theme section in
        the Current Known ROMs
        is usually up-to date - however the sub forum will be always up-to date.

        Some themes are simply applied to launchers that support them - i.e. launcher pro.

        Other need to be installed via Clockwork just like a normal ROM - for these you should always boot the ROM before applying the theme.

        Also you should always do a clockwork (nandroid) backup before applying a theme.

        I dont like the keyboard I have

        Keyboards on Android can be swapped Here is one that I like

        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...-for-the-blade/

        To change a keyboard - Activate it in Settings > Language and Keboard

        Then in ANY app do a long hold in any text areas wich wold normall show the keybaord - then choose Input Method

        Flash content wont play on my phone

        If you have a 2.1 Device then you can install Flash Player Lite

        If your on 2.2 then Flash player lite does not work

        Adobe do not support the ARM6 processor in the ZTE Blade - until they do Adobe Flash player will not work.

        Bluetooth file Transfer doesn't work properly

        Plain vanilla Android has seemingly limited general file transfer capabilities.

        You can download market APPS that are far superior.

        Bluetooth File Transfer (free)

        http://www.appbrain.com/app/bluetooth-file...edieval.blueftp

        I want to buy a Screen Protector or a Silicon Case

        Many Topics exists for this

        I want to buy a Car Mount / Kit

        Here is a good thread - with photo's
        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...n-mount-for-sf/

        I want to buy a 16GB/32GB SD Card - which ones work

        Here is the thread for you

        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...efinitely-work/

        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...efinately-work/

        I want to use A2SD but what do I do

        Firstly you need a ROM that supports A2SD, next you need to know if it support EXT2/3/4

        Now you need to change the way your SDCard is Partitioned.

        In Ubuntu use GParted - in Windows get the home version of Partition Wizard
        http://www.partitionwizard.com/download.html

        Now Copy EVERYTHING off the SD Card.

        Make the FIRST partition the FAT32 one (primary partition) - leave 512MB or more for the EXT2/3/4 (where apps will be installed)

        Now Make Another partition (must be the SECOND) as EXT2/3/4 - also make this primary.

        Now mount the Card and copy all your data back to the FAT32 Part - assuming it fits.

        When you install/next boot you ROM, the EXT2/3/4 partition will be mounted as DATA / this is where your apps go from now on.

        I have bought a bigger SD Card and want to swap it into my Phone

        If your just using FAT32 (no app2sd) this will be easy

        Right Simple - mount the current one over USB on your Computer (you can do this in Android - or in Clockwork)

        Copy everything off onto your computer.

        Unmount

        Swap new card into phone

        Remount over USB

        Copy everything back on

        I am upgrading my ROM and don't want to lose my contacts

        If you sync your contacts via Google (gmail account), then the contact will be re-downloaded when you re-enter your Google Account after flashing.

        You can see your accounts in Menu > Settings > Account & Sync

        Otherwise you can go into the Contacts App and choose Menu > Import Export.

        The Export will made a new large file with all your contacts in. This will be written to the root of your SD Card.

        Import will scan your SD Card and look for any files that are contact backups.

        I want to use ADB on Ubuntu - how do I set this up

        There is a Guide for this

        http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...-and-the-blade/

        I have changed my partition sizes to have a 128MB system, I want to change it back

        Use the TPT method to install this image

        Standard Partition Size
        C8010D841AF463F3CB1FDEDFFAFA3B1E

          No ROM, Just 2 Clockwork partitions, sets all partitions back to stock, you will need ti use the Mounts/USB Mount in clockwork to put a ROM back on

          [*]
          http://www.mediafire.com/?xtckadj09b7sxt2

          I want to change the MAC Address on my Blade

          If you have made a nandroid backup and used it to restore on more than one blade, then the MAC address will be identical on both.

          This means that you will have problems when you try to make them join the Same Wifi Network.

          Ideally you should backup and restore the
          data/misc/wifi/athSavedEeprom.bin
          file - so that you keep a unique MAC.

          However if its already too late, this thread shows you how to change it
          http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...ess-on-a-blade/

          /data/misc/wifi folder you have a file called
          athSavedEeprom.bin

          pull it out, use a hex editor to change one bit of the MAC written there, push it back, and restart the phone.

          I set a BAD SSID in the Wifi Hotspot - now I cannot start Tethering

          If you set a SSID on your hotspot to be too long (over 32 characters) or with non valid characters - then you make it impossible to start the Hotspot.

          You MUST use ADB to edit the hotspot name manually


          sqlite3 /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db 'update secure set value="Fish" where name="wifi_ap_ssid"'
          adb -d shell
          if sqlite3 is not installed on your ROM you can download
          titanium backup
          from the market then use the alternate command

          /data/data/com.keramidas.TitaniumBackup/files/sqlite3 /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db 'update secure set value="Fish" where name="wifi_ap_ssid"'
          adb -d shell
          I want to import all my contacts into Gmail - so they can sync with my phone
          Google dont tell you anywhere what the Magic format is of their CSV - it took me a while to work it out. Make a new file with a .csv extension. Copy the first line from below, then simply add all the contacts you need into the format of the 2nd line Most Spreadsheet programs will let you open the CSV and edit it. Then just import the file into Google Contacts (selecting a group when you do it) - I suggest a new group.

This needs to be made a sticky or it will just disappear into the ether with the rest of the "My blade won't ????"

Yes thats the plan - but A bit of work on it first will tidy it up a bit.

Then I will ask a MOD to sticky it.

Great idea, StevenHarperUK!

I thought it might be a good idea to maintain a dedicated buglist too for the different ROMs? People can reply with bugs that they find and perhaps topic starter could updated first post. This should make it easier for Devs and Users to report-fix bugs? I would do it but I'm not reliable and not always online during the working week.

Brilliant! You're a star for taking the time to put this together, while the rest of us just sit around and moan. :D

How about making the questions a slightly larger font size so they stand out a bit more?

I "look after" 2 san frans, mine and my sister-in-laws.

Since installing Paul's alpha 2.2 (first a4 then a5) I get random signal dropping on both.

The icon on the the top bar showing 4 reception bars gets a small x on it, the red led flashes and I can't make outgoing calls.

Strangely I can receive incoming calls when this happens.

When it first started doing it I just switched to airplane mode and back and the signal came back, I now switch the display off with the power button and when I switch it back on it's fine.

It does this a couple/few times a day, usually when I (well juice defender) switch wifi on (it only ever does it when wifi is on).

Normally I'd put it down to a hardware fault, but, it does it on both phones...

I've searched the forum a few times and not found any mention of this problem by anyone else.

Anyone else having a problem ? It's annoying rather than worrying :D

Yes I had this when on the old Leaked Chinese kernel - I have not had it since swapping to a new Source Kernel.

Look in the Sticked ROMS thread and check the table there - for a kernel that is Source

Great idea, StevenHarperUK!

I thought it might be a good idea to maintain a dedicated buglist too for the different ROMs? People can reply with bugs that they find and perhaps topic starter could updated first post. This should make it easier for Devs and Users to report-fix bugs? I would do it but I'm not reliable and not always online during the working week.

Hmm not sure - Bug lists / known bugs - should really be in the 2nd post for each ROM

too much effort to keep them all in one place

Brilliant! You're a star for taking the time to put this together, while the rest of us just sit around and moan. :D

How about making the questions a slightly larger font size so they stand out a bit more?

Done - can you think of any subjects I have missed?

Yes, you're probably right - way too much effort to manage in one thread.

"Have I got TFT or OLED?" is a common question (along with "...and what's the real difference?").

And I recall a few people not being able to get into recovery because they mistakenly pressed Vol+ when they powered on.

Oh, and the great tip about installing "ADB Wireless" from the Market would be a great solution to the problem of getting USB connections working.

Recent one about using a internet proxy (which many people have to suffer) seems to be: use a 2.2 ROM (like Japanese Jellyfish) and install the latest TransProxy (a combination which works!). (I wonder when Android will have this essential feature natively?)

Maybe add that xScope (is it xScope?) can play flash video.

I Installed Superboot or a None OLED device and now my screen is Tinted BLUE and I cannot wake the screen after it sleeps

should read

I Installed Superboot on a Non OLED device and now my screen is Tinted BLUE and I cannot wake the screen after it sleeps

?

Yes, well done, although I think after this guide has been finished it should be locked, and all the replies deleted so that it is easier to read

Keeping it open is a good way to discuss and suggest changes:

I can not get into Recovery (clockwork)

Make sure you are pressing (and holding) the Volume Down button (-)

If you Just see some ZTE text then you have not installed a Custom Recovery Image yet

Or the letters "FTM" - they also indicate not installed Custom Recovery Image

I "look after" 2 san frans, mine and my sister-in-laws.

Since installing Paul's alpha 2.2 (first a4 then a5) I get random signal dropping on both.

The icon on the the top bar showing 4 reception bars gets a small x on it, the red led flashes and I can't make outgoing calls.

Strangely I can receive incoming calls when this happens.

When it first started doing it I just switched to airplane mode and back and the signal came back, I now switch the display off with the power button and when I switch it back on it's fine.

It does this a couple/few times a day, usually when I (well juice defender) switch wifi on (it only ever does it when wifi is on).

Normally I'd put it down to a hardware fault, but, it does it on both phones...

I've searched the forum a few times and not found any mention of this problem by anyone else.

Anyone else having a problem ? It's annoying rather than worrying :D

Mines been doing things like this since day 1 with the stock rom! Starting to think the phone is faulty or my 10 month old sim?! ARGH
