Default ZTE - Boost Mobile Warp Online Upgrade Tool

Update (Jan 04 2012 9:40am EST)

Handy tool that serves many purposes other than intended.

OTA RootKeeper
https://market.android.com/details?id=org.projectvoodoo.otarootkeeper


Update (Dec 30 2011 3:00am EST)

Stuck with the Froyo version of Android Market after using the ZTE Online Update tool?

You can either be patient and the Market app will update itself, you can force an update, or you can download and manually install the current Market v3.4.4 yourself.

Force an update using the instructions found at Updating Android Market - Android Market Help

Download 3.4.4 from HERE and manually install.

Update
(Aug 18 2012 5:43pm EST; Changed link to ZippyShare)

If you need the below files that were offered on the ZTE website to update/restore your phone I've rar'd and uploaded the below two files(exe and pdf) to ZippyShare.

As of Dec 26 2011 this method is confirmed working as per the thread
"Tips B08 update for rooted users."

Remember to backup if you still have the capability prior to using this method as it will wipe your data and apps. And restore afterward.

Also,
your SD card will get wiped too so it would be wise to remove it prior. Or backup the whole card to your PC and then proceed to update.

Zippyshare.com - ZTE_Online_Upgrade_Tool.rar < rar'd exe and pdf instructions, no password req'd

If for some reason the rar archive disappears from ZippyShare feel free to PM me and I'll re-up ASAP.


Update
(Dec 25 2011 5:30am EST)

Boost themselves are now offering via an OTA update a non-destructive(meaning no backup prior and restore afterward req'd, your apps and data are kept intact) firmware update to the as of this moment current
N860V1.0.0B08 firmware

To begin the OTA firmware update procedure:
Menu > Settings > About phone > System updates > Update Firmware

It will take under 10mins with a good 3G signal, start to finish.


Quote:
Go to:
ZTEUSA.COM > Home > Support

Then click on the "Software" tab.

Under the Software tab you'll find:
Code:
Boost Mobile Warp Online Upgrade Tool.exe (13MB)
Boost Mobile Online Upgrade Tool Introduction.pdf (1.30MB)
note: I purposely did not link the above two items, the exe and pdf, fearing should the link target(s) get reassigned to an incorrect and/or otherwise harmful executable.

If you phone is working fine dont do it. It wipes everything. This is for folks that mess up the software.

So I ran the tool and before it does the upgrade it lets you know if you even need it. And sure enough my device was out of date. I dont remember the exact version but my current version ended in 06 and the latest is 07. So I rebooted my phone downloaded mybackup and backed up all my apps and text messages. I am running the upgrade now and will report how it turns out. I am hoping it will solve some of my issues with random reboots and wifi freezing.

Sorry I forgot to mention that the upgrade tool actually contacts ZTE's server and checks for the update. Right now its downloading the update which I assume may be a whole ROM replacement as its 123mb so I am excited to see if this brings any enhancements.

Ran the update just fine. Everything went through successfully. Reroot worked just fine as well. I ran mybackup and restored everything back because it does do a full wipe. But mybackup restored my apps + data so I am all good. So those wishing to run the update I would say its safe to do just may want to backup your system using a tool like mybackup prior to updating.

Quick question.
Do you download this link on the phone, or on a computer?
Also, how long does it take?

I'm trying to boot into FTM mode by holding volume down and the power button at the same time, but it just boots up like normal, no FTM mode.

Anyone know how to fix this? It's not rooted or anything.


Edit: Got it, wasn't doing it correctly.

Can you tell me how you got it into FTM mode...I tried for a while and it kept booting up too....this is crazy, i just got my Warp today and I am playing around loading apps and such before I activate it...will the FTM work without it being activated?

With the phone off(not standby!), keep holding the side volumes "Down' button, and restart your phone.

I used the online update tool the other day--I'd been experiencing a couple of freeze-ups a day--generally while using a web browser. (And then -- long story -- I managed to screw up the permissions on the stock Music app, which turns out to be an essential component for any app that browses for media on your sd card.) The tool worked flawlessly, and updated my system to build N860V1.0.0B07. Since then the random crashes/freeze-ups seem to have disappeared, and the system overall seems to be running more smoothly. So I'd recommend it if you're having any stability issues with your Warp.

Have you guys noticed anything different in b08 ? Stability / freeze fixes? More stability? Better performance? Any Camera enhancements?

Has Anyone got root to work successfully on b08?

Alright I just upgraded I am about to try to reroot and run my restore. What I did notice is they rolled back the market to an older version. Looks like its the one that comes default with Froyo I wonder why?

Word to the wise.
If you're rooted, don't update until you unroot first. Reroot after you update.

cas, are you able to update the market back to where it should be via this: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.google.android.finsky

edit: nevermind, apparently that is the old version too!

their decision to roll-back the android market may be the deal breaker for me.. I like the look of the newer one that should be on here. Btw, does anyone else with B08 notice that their android market looks like its an older version?

I would have to agree b08 seems very smooth and not a single freeze or lockup yet. Maybe they finally got all the issues resolved this time. I would really like to see the release notes for this build but I have no idea where to find them I am hoping they will push a build out that fixes up the camcorder a little bit.

On another note Camera 360 is free today from the market and its a great alternative to the default camera app that comes with stock gingerbread.

Maybe should ask Google to upgrade their GMS baseline for OEM for integration. Google should learn more from the market optimize their boundled apps. Does anyone find some improvements in ICS for their app,specially on camera and camcoder?

My phone will not update....it runs through the entire process....it asks if I want to update from B6 to B8. The phone then restarts...I check the phone information after the re-boot and it is still on B6. WTF

It sends it to the server then nothing happens....thats the last thing that happens for me

Thanks for updating us like this.

One question that may be obvious to others but not to me.

When you say: "I ran mybackup and restored everything back because it does do a full wipe. But mybackup restored my apps + data so I am all good. So those wishing to run the update I would say its safe to do just may want to backup your system using a tool like mybackup prior to updating."

Does this mean that the "apps * data" fills them self into the new update or that by " ..ran mybackup and restored everything back because it does a full wipe" means that you only tested the download "update" to see what it was and if it worked? If it is the later that you did, then you are braver than i want to be with the unknown ( updates ROM's and even apps; wasn't aware that my phone is vulnerable to virus's just like my computer.

Lastly does the type of device/phone matter when it comes to "Boost Updates"
Maybe i need to read all the posts again because i'm not sure if someone mentioned exactly what the update(s) do.

In fact can someone illustrate the process ie: You buy a phone that will work with a carrier ( is the carrier the same as " the network "? ) [ recently a Sprint store employee who took my boost payment told me: " Although Boost uses the "Sprint Network" it does not use all of the same technology available to Sprint customers only." That is not impossible to imagine happening. However is it true? Do we know and or can we see a side by side of what is available with a Sprint vs Boost?

How does 4G work with Boost?

If you don't mind will you all list which Boost phone you are using? Thanks!

MyBackup < First three choices, fittingly indicated by the red and white lifesaver icon.

Your apps and data will be wiped from the phone during the update process. Use MyBackup(or other) to restore after updating.

DO NOT use the above update on any other phone other than a ZTE Warp.

Yes, Boost lags in what Sprint offers.

4G. See above. It doesn't work on Boost. 3G or bust on Boost.

My phone is obviously a BoostMobile ZTE Warp.

Use MyBackup to create a backup of your data and and another of your apps PRIOR to updating. Then simply use it again after updating to restore your apps and your data using the backup files you created on the SD card.

Just to be clear (not that your post isn't, I'm just slow!), we can do our updates from The settings menu (prl, firmware, etc), and that will bring in the ZTE upgrade-without resetting the phone?

The tool worked flawlessly, and updated my system to build N860V1.0.0B07. Since then the random crashes/freeze-ups seem to have disappeared, and the system overall seems to be running more smoothly. So I'd recommend it if you're having any stability issues with your Warp.
I wouldn't say that B07 is perfect though. I've had a couple lock ups and one random restart. One came after using Google Maps/Navigation, which I've seen cause problems with other phones too. My phone's Update System function tells me that I'm up to date, but the online upgrade tool is offering me an upgrade to B08. I'll install it if the problems continue--otherwise I might wait a week or two to see if they stick with this version or bump it to B09 or B10 in that time period.

Either way it's good to see that ZTE is working on the problems.

Keep in mind Boost has to setup their own backend to distribute OTA updates whereas ZTE and the means/method they employ is a more immediate solution. That, and I wonder if Boost does any regression testing prior to offering any of the updates via OTA. I'm sure they do as can you imagine Boost themselves putting out an OTA update that breaks their subscribers phones. So Boost OTA will be slower.

It is reassuring to see the recent stream of updates.

Yes, just update the firmware. Should do it. I did the prl, profile, firmware just to make sure everything possible got updated.

Just did the "hook up to PC" route, all went smoothly. Will testify in a few days as to whether or not it's faster/smoother.

Update


OK, I just checked what Boost it offering via OTA and as of Dec 25 2011 5:30am EST and it is indeed N860V1.0.0B08

And to answer the "Does the OTA update "wipe' the phone" , no. Using Boost's OTA update does not wipe the phone. All your data and apps will remain intact afterward.

The whole process takes <10mins from beginning to end on a good 3G signal.
