Angry ZTE Warp 4G Bricked?

I think I may have bricked my phone.
I am stuck on the orange 4G screen.
I tried to install a font through Font Installer and it all went bust from there!
If you could help me out, that would be great.
The sucky thing is though, I am on stock recovery.
I don't have CWM. Is the damage reversible?
Any solution will help! Thanks!

If you can get into fastboot you can fix it on your own. I don't think you can however, since you are on stock recovery and can't boot into your rom. Any chance you can get adb access from the orange 4g screen? If so you can type "adb reboot bootloader" to get to fastboot.

The only other thing that might work is the zte upgrade tool, but i don't think it is available for the warp 4g.

You need the warp 4g drivers, fastboot, and adb installed on your pc. Unless you are running linux, i won't get into that lol. Once installed and working, connect your phone to your pc with a usb cable, open a terminal (cmd.exe on windows) and type "adb devices" without the quotes and press enter. If you see a serial number, adb is working.

If you don't mind booting your pc into linux for a bit, you can use this tool to see if you can get get adb working. The tool is made for the warp2 so make sure you do NOT run the script on the desktop to install cwm.

[TOOL] Warp2 CWM & Root Flasher

I will provide more info if you choose to go this route. It saves the trouble of setting up drivers, adb and fastboot

you can also should be able to boot into ftm mode, which will have adb working. The hardware combo is the opposite volume direction as to get in recovery. On the awe, that would be vol+up to get into ftm.

Same as warp Lte. I've accidentally booted into ftm a few times trying to get to cwm

@randjav15 Ok, so with all that in mind, the next step would be to choose your pc adb preference. Either:
1. install adb, fastboot, and warp 4g drivers in windows. Launch cmd.exe
OR
2. get the cwm flasher tool posted above and boot your pc to it. Click the black icon on the bottom left to launch a terminal.

Then, boot your phone to ftm (probably holding vol up + power) (Thanks cooldudezach) and plug in your phone via usb cable.

Type "adb devices" in either cmd.exe or terminal. If you get a serial number adb is working.
Now type "adb reboot bootloader" to enter fastboot mode. If all that works we can most likely fix your phone

edit: if you choose #1 above, someone else will need to jump in to help you sort out windows driver issues.

edit2: if you choose #2 above, you will need a copy of the warp 4g cwm.img on a flash drive.

edit3: just made a flashable cwm that may come in handy during this process. Sometimes booting to cwm works better than flashing cwm from fastboot. If that is the case you can boot to cwm and flash this zip to install cwm Keep in mind that this zip has not been tested since i don't have this device.

I imagine the drivers come from zte's website, adb and fastboot are included in the android sdk package available from google. I won't be able to help any further than that. If you go with the cwm flasher I can help you

The cwm flasher does not run on the phone, it runs on your computer. It boots your computer to a cd that has a linux desktop and adb/fastboot installed and ready to use.

edit: if you want cwm on your device and you are using the cwm flasher tool, you will need a cd and a usb flash drive.

edit2: The usb flash drive should contain the warp 4g cwm.img. Additionally, place the rom of your choice and the flashable cwm i posted above in the root of your phones sdcard.

A CD-Rom CD or just a CD you put music on?

I am not sure there is a difference really, but this will be a bootable cd-rom. If you have cd-r's that are labeled as music cd's they will almost certainly work fine. You will need to use the option "burn iso image to disc" or similar in your burning program. I know imgburn will do the trick if you can't sort it out another way.

Put the cd in the cd drive on your pc, reboot your pc and change the boot order so your cd-rom drive boots first.

This part depends on your pc motherboard. You will need to change the boot order by either entering setup in your bios, or some pc's have a key you can push right when you turn it on. Anyway, boot to the cd. If you have trouble with this let me know.

edit: hopefully you have another way to post once your pc is running the cwm flasher tool

edit2: if you have an ethernet port on your pc you could plug it up and have internet while using the cwm tool (not sure there is a browser now that i think about it lol)

make sure you are not just burning the iso as a file on to the cd, make sure you are burning image to disc. The terminology is different for all the burning programs.

Here is more detail:

Once you boot to the cd, you will get to a menu, choose default by pressing [Enter]. Once the desktop boots up you will have your mouse and a gui. Make sure your usb stick and phone are plugged in and your phone is in ftm mode (probably holding vol up + power) (Thanks cooldudezach). Click on the middle icon at the bottom left of the screen (it will say PCMan File Manager if you hover your mouse over it). Click your usb stick from the list on the left of the file manager window that opened. Make sure you see warplte_cwm.img in the box to the right. If you don't see it, you did not click on the correct drive in the list on the left or you never copied it to the stick. Once you see warplte_cwm.img, press F4 on your keyboard and a terminal should pop up.

Type the following into the terminal and press enter:
Code:
adb devices
If you see a serial number, adb is working. Type the following into the terminal and press enter:
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
Once the prompt returns, type the following into the terminal and press enter:
Code:
fastboot boot warplte_cwm.img
Your phone should now boot to cwm and allow you to wipe data and flash cwm and the rom from your sdcard.

ok, well lets give it a shot. If you are getting question marks it at least knows there is a device. It may not work though. Continue from my post earlier after adb devices

I have cwm now.
It works!
Thank you so much! I am really appreciative! I just got this phone for Christmas and my mom got it for me. It would have been really disappointing if I messed this up. Never again downloading a font lol.

Glad to hear it When you are ready to go back to your regular computer, click the bottom far left button and choose logout. Choose reboot system from the pulldown menu and click ok. If you changed the boot order in bios, it might try to boot to the cd again if it is still in the drive. Enjoy!

I use the font installer in ROM toolbox by JRummy. It's been safe & flawless so far and yes, I used it on this Warp4G. I installed the Cardo font.

1. install adb, fastboot, and warp 4g drivers in windows. Launch cmd.exe
OR
2. get the cwm flasher tool posted above and boot your pc to it. Click the black icon on the bottom left to launch a terminal.

Then, boot your phone to ftm (probably holding vol up + power) (Thanks cooldudezach) and plug in your phone via usb cable.

Type "adb devices" in either cmd.exe or terminal. If you get a serial number adb is working.
Now type "adb reboot bootloader" to enter fastboot mode. If all that works we can most likely fix your phone

edit: if you choose #1 above, someone else will need to jump in to help you sort out windows driver issues.

edit2: if you choose #2 above, you will need a copy of the warp 4g cwm.img on a flash drive.

edit3: just made a flashable cwm that may come in handy during this process. Sometimes booting to cwm works better than flashing cwm from fastboot. If that is the case you can boot to cwm and flash this zip to install cwm Keep in mind that this zip has not been tested since i don't have this device.
Just so you know, fastboot flash [whatever] more than likely doesn't work on the warplte, since it doesn't work on the source or the awe. It sits on "writing..." forever.

Thanks for the info. We did not use fastboot flash, we used fastboot boot cwm.img. Then you can flash roms from cwm on the device while it's booted from the image. It's a neat little workaround

Actually, this works fine. If you have problems with the rom you can boot back to the image and restore backups or flash new roms just like if you had it installed. A bit more of a pain than installing in my opinion but it works.

yes it does, unless the roms unbootable and that in turn breaks ftm... then you have no adb access and you cant get back to the bootloader

Right, but that is apparently not the case here as he has adb access.

well in this instance yes he did get adb access, but in the newer thread after he got cwm to work just booted he no longer has ftm or a bootable rom...
Stuck!
the only adb available is that of sideload which believe me i have tried to get to do anything but sideload, it wont. and to my knowledge stock recovery cant sideload an unofficial zip

ftm seems to be tied directly to the rom on these 8930 devices, if the rom fails in the wrong way, then ftm fails, and if both fail and all youre left with is stock recovery, you can only rma it. had cwm been installed and not just temporarily booted, the phone would have been salvageable

ah. and of course he used the unmodified stock rom which at the time said UNTESTED and may not have booted properly. May need to return to radio shack after all.

I think he flashed cwm using the first flashable i put together, but i don't know if it worked . I made a second one too but i don't know if either of them work. No feedback makes working on a device you don't own difficult lol

yep, it sucks but i learned that from a guy with a cricket source, he had the same thing happen basically. there was no comin back from it, i tried hard as i could but there was just nothing that could be done at that point. i wouldnt have seen it coming either, so dont blame yourself, i just want the warning out there that you dont want to flash things without cwm installed kuz you could end up with a brick like this
