    While using the update tool from ZTE I copied the file that the program downloaded to update the phone. It saved it as N860V1.0.0B16.zip and I copied it before the update tool finished and deleted it.

    NOT WORKING>>>>In theory (not tested by me) you should be able to rename this as update.zip and place it on your sdcard then use stock recovery to update your phone to B08. <<<<NOT WORKING

    There are other things developers might be able to use this for as well.

    I wonder if this would work on a rooted phone or if the phone has to be set back to unrooted? anyway we will find out soon enough cuz I plan to download the file you have supplied and i'm gonna try to upgrade it like you said. change the file name then copy it to the card and try to upgrade it. I wonder if i has to be in a special place on the card or if it can be in the root Dir?

    nope it didn't work, It said that "signature verification failed" reboot normal. well that it just not nice at all, I wanted it to work too. the file you supplied was like 121meg it said to put it in the image directory on the sd card so i did and bam nothing worked. back to the starting line. lol

    this may have worked if my phone was not rooted. but now since it didn't work I guess I'm gonna have to unroot my phone then do the update and then root it again and then load all my apps back in. man I don't even wanna go through all that. got ant better idea's ?

    I'm not sure why it did not update my phone with the rooted files, it reset everything right back to the way it was when I got if from the store. anyways I got it updated fine and I rooted it again, now I'm reloading all my apps back in cuz my backup I had on my SD card got wiped out as well, and the program that was supposed to update the phone was not working for some reason, so I had to put the phone into ftm mode and then use the handset updating prog. It all worked out fine, I even tried the little experiment that Woodstock77 suggested, download the file rename it then copy it to SD card and then try to updated it that way, that didn't work it said the " signature ?can't rem" failed"... Oh well I like messing things up anyways...lol It's how I learn New things...

    Since Marknderm tested the update.zip and stock recovery could not verify signature then we can assume that the build is not signed and therefore you would need custom revovery to use this file from an sdcard.
    If this is the case then we can also assume that ZTE update software can possibly be used to flash a nandroid backup or unsigned updates to the phone also with some cheating. Possibly a talented person could figure this out and completely eliminate the need for a custom recovery.
    I see potential in the ZTE upgrade software.

    As long as they are in the right folders I don't see why it wouldn't work.if not then you could change the server location in the config file. As long as the zip file is in the right folder locally then it will skip download, and go straight to installation

    Thats what Im thinking. I think I will have to run some test. Of course using this file first. Then do some modifications to it and try again. I will need some server space I guess. It will probably be this weekend before I can really dive into it.

    i tested my theory by just dropping the file into the "FirmwareVersion" folder, it has to be this exact folder and named exactly as such. the program will create it before the download starts. just drop the update file in it and it will skip the download and go straight to extraction. so im guessing if we can get an update file with a custom rom we might actually be able to exploit this tool and skip CWM until sebastian finishes it. i would like to see a deodexed rom without bloatware. i think that would be a game changer for the warp and double the performance.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention that the update was also completed to test the theory and went off without a hitch. phone runs fine after update

    Great. I forgot what directory I pulled the file from. Was it C:\Program Files\Handset software update tool\Handset software update tool\N860files where you put it at?

    It goes in C:\Program Files\Handset software update tool\Handset software update tool\FirmwareVersion then it should extract it and install

    Now Ive got to figure out how to change something in the update file so we know this method works. Im thinking of changing just the boot animation and boot sound. Then if that works we need to get somebody to make a fully custom rom for us. :D

    EDIT: For my use later

    So in "theory" we "should" be able to put together a custom rom, drop it in the appropriate folder, and zte updater tool "should" do the rest?

    In theory yes it should work seeing as the update is unsigned, it should flash a custom ROM the same as the update

    Yes. If I can figure out how to change stuff in the img files I could test it. Im having trouble getting my windows PC to do it. We need some people who know what they are doing. Not me:D

    i tried to unyaffs, winrar, and 7-zip. none of them would open the img files, so im not sure on how to do it. unyaffs says its a broken image file. and i know it is used to extract recovery.img on most roms. maybe sebastian will have a little more insight on the situation. i made a full rom dump of my phone and have slightly started deodexing but its my first time doing it. I might not have done it right, i can upload my complete progress after i finish so it can be double checked

    Thats because zte uses ext4 and not yaffs. We need something that works with ext4. Im learning with this Mount EXT4, EXT3 Or EXT2 Partitions In Windows 7 Or XP ~ Web Upd8: Ubuntu / Linux blog

    EDIT: BTW here is my rom dump http://db.tt/xYERFUHj
