ZTE officially updated the ZTE Open to 1.1 and abandoned it.
To manually update it to the latest and greatest, follow these simple steps:
Grab a copy of Ubuntu 12.04, and install basic pre-requisites:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install autoconf2.13 bison bzip2 ccache curl flex gawk gcc g++ g++-multilib git ia32-libs lib32ncurses5-dev lib32z1-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libx11-dev make zip

Install adb, install java
clone the b2g repository:

git clone git://github.com/mozilla-b2g/B2G.git

grab a coffee

cd B2G

now if you want to build 1.3 run

BRANCH=v1.3 VARIANT=user ./config.sh inari


BRANCH=v1.4 VARIANT=user ./config.sh inari

2.0 < code complete as of 1st September 2014

BRANCH=v2.0 VARIANT=user ./config.sh inari

Wait for it to build.
when it finishes run

./build.sh gecko

This will build only gecko at the latest version
to flash run

./flash.sh gecko

this will update gecko to the version you chose, we now need to update gaia to the same version

cd gaia
make reset-gaia

and wait and afterwards you will be running the chosen versions of gecko and gaia.

why have I not updated gonk, I will refer you to https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox_OS/Platform/Architecture and leave that for a future post
