For me, 3G is very stable on SIM2 and I am not sure what you mean by your buttons to be wiggly/loose.
So do you have flashed first 2B06 with the online tool and then installed catty's 1.5.1 from the recovery ? Which problem did you have with 2B06 ROM ?

Oh so its possible to use 2b06 with catty 1.5.1 rom?

Okay so I read that you must use the oneclickupdater on xp, right?

And then I have to install clockwork again and root it again??? And after doing that flash catty 1.5.1 customrom?

With loose buttons I mean that the volume and on/off buttons on my phone are sitting loosely on the phone and not very solid (like that they only move when touched)

Sorry guys... I didn't flash 1.5.1 over 2B06. Instead, just used ZTE_U960_kernel_2B06_ram386_OC_catty

Sorry for this.

No, sorry, wrongly referenced 1.5.1 instead of Catty's 2B06 ram + OC.

You need to just follow The Solutor solution for 2B06 (OneClickUpdater + GApps/Root). Then install Catty's 2B06 ram/kernel OC.

I had to go through lots of other changes because the initial oneclickupdate failed and left me with unrooted, no accessible recovery and IMEI: 0.

Is it even possible to install 2B06 update and then flash catty 1.5.1 over it, or would it not make any difference?

Because 2B06 updates the baseband, it could very well make a difference

EDIT: Oh so you simply installed the 2B06 update and then flashed catty custom 1,4ghz and ram hack kernel?

Well I would prefer to leave the overclock away and simply install 2B06 with maybe a languagehack for german

Why did you get an IMEI error anywas? Didnt you install from an xp machine?

After what did you get this problem ? Personnaly, after I flash and update all the stuff, I always reset the phone completely in recovery. Then need to setup the phone again (at least, just reinstall Titanium backup to get back all the apps).

So there is a way to change the IMEI, but be carefull, DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK. I am not responsible if you brick your phone.

You need to get QPST. Search google, download and install, then run. In QPST, start "Software Download" and backup to get a QCN file. This is just in case something goes wrong.
Once done, start "Service Programming". Read from the phone and you will see nothing for IMEI in TAC, FAC and SNR. On the back of your phone, you should have written the IMEI of the phone. IMEI = 6 + 2 + 6 digits (forget about the last one). This is what you should enter in TAC, FAC and SNR.
Then Write to Phone. It will reboot and bingo !!! Now, you have the IMEI with *#06# dial.
Finally, the OneClick update tool can now see the phone with no strange IMEI chinese popup

PS: if you are asked a code in QPST Service Programming, should be 000000. If that does not work, you will need to find the MSL code of your phone.

EDIT: PLEASE WAIT BEFORE DOING THIS. I WANT TO BE SURE EVERYTHING IS BACK AFTER APPLYING 2B06.
For all having IMEI: 0, this solution works well and everything works as expected. The phone really rocks now (setup Supercharger V6)

You can install the other ZTE_U960_kernel_2B06_ram390_catty which has no OC. Personally, I'll have to find a french lang pack, but I suspect I'll need to create it myself.

I think something went wrong on the first install (corrupted download maybe). I always used XP (and not a virtual machine).

Just an idea that might help you.
I assume that you can't enter the recovery. Why don't you put the phone into FTM mode and try to flash a custom recovery? Maybe that could work, then you would have a working recovery.

The code will tell you the MAC address of the Bluetooth adapter (and lets you change it too!).
The one click updater is the official update method from ZTE, much like a RUU for HTC. Basically it is an application that will update/downgrade your phone to another version of the installed OS

OneClickUpdater program is very easy to use and has been done for people who are not familiar with ROM updates. The issue is that you must use a Windows XP machine to make it work. At the moment, there is no .zip file to use to upgrade through recovery for 2B06.

The Solutor posted a nice and detailed post to explain this. The problem is only when things don't work.

All existing rooting tools don't work with Android 2.3.5 and above. There is only one good way to unroot:
1) Install the Android SDK and all related drivers (works under XP, Vista, Seven) to have access to the device using "adb".
2) Ensure adb does not execute on the PC and reboot the phone completely.
3) When the phone is rebooted, dial *983*8421# so that the phone provides adb with root permissions.
4) Start adb on the PC
5) Now you need to do as the zergRush exploit, except that there is no need to run the exploit itself so just:
- install Busybox
- install su
- install Superuser.apk
6) Reboot and you are done, phone rooted.

Additionally, if the recovery is not there, once you are rooted, you can install/flash Clockworkmod recovery.

PS: maybe you can also run the usual root tools as long as adbRoot is started on the phone, but I have not tested this.

There is no way to just backup the IMEI other than writing it somewhere... although it's already writen on the back of the phone and should match the number you get when dialing *#06# for IMEI display.

I have explained in a previous post how to recover the IMEI on the phone using QPST. I used it also to backup the nvram of the phone in case something goes wrong.

What I don't understand is that using 2 antennas should use 2 IMEI numbers, but only one is written on the phone. And even though the update failed for me for 2B06 giving IMEI: 0, the phone still works with 2 SIM cards (and for instance, I use the same Mobile provider for both SIM, one for work and one for Personal 3G).

In rooting, updating ROMs, baseband and stuff, there is always a part of risk you need to accept.

how i install 2b06 through windows xp machine.or please upload this 2b06 installation procedure through windows xp machine on YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
#1 Download, decompress and install the one click updater (archive's password is "zte_u960"): I think this is self explanatory enough !

#2 replace the file RF.ZTE with the one I've uploaded here
The file location is usually C:\Program Files\ZTE\DL_U960_CMCC_CHN_EU\version\) but the location could be slightly different depending on Windows' language and drive installation: this is just a simple copy file operation.

#3 Start the update process using the previously installed updater. Just click !!

#4 If the process went trough correctly (dial *983*154# to check your actual version) and the phone rebooted correctly, you can turn it off and reboot it in recovery mode (turn it ON keeping the power button and Volume UP depressed) and apply the update package I prepared to get the phone rooted and gapps installed in one step: just download the Gapps+root.zip file, put it on the sdcard and from the recovery, do an "update from .zip".

#5 you can (optionally) flash also one of Catty's mod kernels to get the 1.4Ghz overclock and init.d function (see the linked post), is better to wipe the phone after this step to avoid market problems: as easy as update from zip.

#6 If, after the flashing process, the USB function of the phone doesn't work as expected (E.g., no USB storage available), you may need to use the set mode utility to switch it back to its original behavior. (select the option on the left and confirm with the button on the left): you can instead just dial *983*87274# to change the Usb Setting (first option).

Hi NetMare,

Have you tried with another battery if you've got a second one ?
After this happened, can you dial *983*25# to display battery info and cop the result here ?

2- settings>application>development>usb debugging(check mark).

2) Ensure adb does not execute on the PC and reboot the phone completely.
3) When the phone is rebooted, dial *983*8421# so that the phone provides adb with root permissions.
4) Start adb on the PC
5) Now you need to do as the zergRush exploit, except that there is no need to run the exploit itself so just:
- install Busybox
- install su
- install Superuser.apk
6) Reboot and you are done, phone rooted.

Additionally, if the recovery is not there, once you are rooted, you can install/flash Clockworkmod recovery.

PS: maybe you can also run the usual root tools as long as adbRoot is started on the phone, but I have not tested this.
I finally do it, root and install a new ROM

Thanks a lot for Everyone!

Question Auto Power ON

Hi,
have anybody experienced problems with wake up the phone?
So can I use the alarm clock even if the phone is switched off?
Sometimes the phone is able to automatically switch on and generate the wake up signal, but many times (recently) were not able to switch on...
In my Lenovo A60 there is an extra menu regarding auto switch on if I push the Power Button...
Sw is 2B06, No Catty ROM
Thanks in advance,

1) Can you ensure you have in Device Manager, under the corresponding USB root, the ZTE Hanset ADB interface, ZTE Handset USB modem and ZTE Handset Diagnostic Interface (COMx) ?
2) Ensure you have USB debugging activated in Android (Settings/application/development)
3) Just in case, ensure you have the right USB debugging activated on the phone: dial *983*87274# and select the first option.

This is the description:
1. 2B06 Baseband.
2. Add multi-languages. Now supports: Arabic, Belarusian, Brazil Portuguese, Czech, Catala, Dutch, Danish, English, French, Finnish, German, Greek, Georgian, Hebrew, Hungarian, Hrvatski, Italian, Indonesia, Japanese, Korean, Lietuviu, Malay, Norwegian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Vietnamese, Russian, Romanian, Spanish, Slovenian, Serbian, Swedish, Turkish, Thai, Tagalog, Ukrainian, Urdu

2. Debugging is enabled
3. First option is selectede

Is there some other drivers beside the ones that came with the one click installer that i could be missing ?

Edit: I just ran the driver installer once more and now the other devices showed up, i am in progress of flashing now.

Allright i got everything updatede without problems, one click installer went thrugh to 100% without issues, i followed The Solutors guide and it worked greate, the only thing i see different is that i now have a lot of chinese apps aso, that was not the case before but i also notice that the catty62 file is not a mod but only a kernel so thats perhaps why ?

Or will i just have to flash an older catty62 mod version to have it back to the old way ?

Thanks all for the help btw

That is the question: which applications should I remove?

Sorry for the delay...

here are the results of *983*25#

Battery status: discharging
Battery level: 100
Battery scale: 100
Battery health: good
Battery voltage: 4145mV
Battery temperature: 19C

I have tried both batteries! Fully charged.

Software informations:
ZTE-T U960MCCV1.0.0B06/U960V1.0.2B06
U960SPV1.0.2B03/U960V1.0.2B06

Why there is still a 2B03 in it? Made the update like The Solutor wrote...

Maybe thats the problem?

@KT0M73:
you have had the same problem? So same stuff: screen is locked and you can not unlock it again... somethime phone restarts completely when trying to unlock? This only happens also on your phone only on battery power?


Thanks for your support guys!

regards from germany



EDIT: ON

Tested again with eto rom 1.6b... they say during installation via update.zip this will also update the baseband to 2B06... No change - still same problem... gonna send the phone back to eto for replacement... Looks for me like an hardware failure as everything works on power supply...

EDIT: OFF

Hi!

I had troubles with A-GPS on my U960, like not getting a GPS fix, or for example, Foursquare could not locate me, and much more, so I dug into the topic a bit.
I managed to fix it, and I think it might be useful if I share the fruits of my labor. (copy-paste-ing together a working gps.conf file from bits and pieces from various forums :P)

So, basically you just need to download the file from the attachment of this message, edit it a bit (see below), remove the .txt extension, and move this file to the /etc folder by using Root Explorer, replacing the file already there, and setting rw-r-r permissions for it. It is wise to backup the old file, just in case.

It is configured for Hungary, but it is easy to change it. Let me explain.
Open the file in Notepad, and at the beginning, there is this part:

NTP_SERVER=hu.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=0.hu.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=1.hu.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=2.hu.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=3.hu.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=0.europe.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=1.europe.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=2.europe.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=3.europe.pool.ntp.org

You just need to change the "hu" and "europe" part to something that applies to you.
For reference, I recommend this page:
pool.ntp.org: the internet cluster of ntp servers
At the right side, under "Active Servers", there are the regions, and under the regions, there are the country codes.

Have fun!

To have the phone updated you need:

A working XP32 machine and the drivers installed (either from join me sw or the ones included on the one click updater package)

Then :

#1 Download, decompress and install the one click updater (archive's PW is zte_u960)

#2 replace the file RF.ZTE with the one I've uploaded here

the file location is usually C:\Program Files\ZTE\DL_U960_CMCC_CHN_EU\version\) but the location could be slightly different depending on Windows' language and drive installation.

#3 Start the update process using the previously installed updater

#4 If the process went trough correctly (dial *983*154# to check your actual version) and the phone rebooted correctly, you can turn it off and reboot it in recovery mode (turn it ON keeping the power button and Volume UP depressed) and apply the update package I prepared to get the phone rooted and gapps installed in one step.

#5 you can (optionally) flash also one of Catty's mod kernels to get the 1.4Ghz overclock and init.d function (see the linked post), is better to wipe the phone after this step to avoid market problems.


#6 If, after the flashing process, the USB function of the phone doesn't work as expected (E.g., no USB storage available), you may need to use the set mode utility to switch it back to its original behavior. (select the option on the left and confirm with the button on the left)

[Edit 15/05/2012]

replaced the root + gapps market package that had some problems with the market with the V2 (root + gapps/playstore), if you have already downloaded it, please redownload and reaply the update.
thankyou Solutor now i full understand and download above material.

I received the file from Etotalk. The zip file loads from Recovery very quickly, has the gapps and OC kernel included, very little Chinese content and seems to be running fine without any adjustments so far. I had previously been using Catty62's ROM (and it was excellent) and this new one seems just as stable.
