Default Package Corrupt

I tried to update the system software on my AT&T Avail. Now the phone is in a restart loop. If I try to do a reset (power - vol up - menu) I get a package corrupt message. Is there anyway to get the phone working again?

Can adb find it?

This doesn't sound good.

I haven't seen safe mode since 2.1, and even then it came up on its own. Sounds sadly like a corrupt update and a new brick.

I was able to get into fmt mode so I downloaded the software kit from the zte website and got it back.

I just can't get it to root.

I am having this same issue... I can't get into stock recovery!!! HELP!!!

Unsuccessful. The package is corrupt.

That is what I get when I try to boot into stock recovery, anyway to repair this so I can gain root? The phone is working fine, I can get it safe mode as well. Would like to root this phone.

you must have a folder on your sdcard named "image"

delete this folder

that is the only way that i know of that will cause the "corrupt package" error
