    Hi,

    I have an unlocked (not rooted) SF2. Yesterday my handsets battery ran flat. When I plugged in and turned on the phone it failed to boot up past the Orange logo. Now I know there a similar threads that have been posted recently but my problem has a twist. To make things worse my laptop doesn't recognise the phone when in FTM mode so I cant use the ZTE update tool.

    Is there ANYTHING I can do to get the phone working again. I don't care about losing data. I've only had it 7 weeks so I guess I can take it back to the Orange shop but I'd prefer to fix it myself.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    You don't need your laptop to recognise the phone. Try the tool anyway.

    Hi Fr0d0,

    I was hoping you'd reply. Seem to be the local SF2 guru.

    I'm not sure if I'm being a little dense about this. I assume that the 'tool' is the 3rd DL down on wwwen.zte.com.cn/endata/mobile/UK/ right?

    The instructions then tell me to place the '.bin' file onto the SD card. How do I do this if I cant get into the phone directly or via the laptop?
