Hi guys, i'm here, i'm always here. Pls don't worry, and pls don't hurry. There are a lot of departments in the big ZTE company, so there are a lot of walls between the departments. So we need some times to handle an issue but we will do it. Best wishes, Ben | 应贲 System engineer Project Management Dept.

That is a bad move in my opinion. Do they not realize that open and customizable phones and tablets is what people wants and expects now? I Sweden users of the ZTE V9/Light even bought me a tablet because they wanted custom ROMs for it. They suggested it, not me. Now they can all enjoy a very stable Android 2.3.7 (in the form of CyanogenMod) on their tablets thanks to the community. We can even do multitouch gestures as zooming and rotating even though it's a single touch resistive screen. And all the work the community put into it can be found on github so what we fix and enhance can be useful for ZTE. If this is where ZTE is heading, then my next device will be from a different manufacturer. /kallt_kaffe PS. I also would like to know where I can find the kernel source for the ZTE V9C (Reliance 3G tab).

It wouldn't be a surprise, as ZTE has been deliberately trying to disable user-flashing, and removing fastboot is a bit against the Android principles (to always have a method what can recover a dead device). While this principle is not official, as I heard, Google requires it most of the time (to make the work of warranty services easier, and unified, except Samsung ofc...), and disabling it wasn't the best step, so locking it down (á lá HTC) might be a better solution. 2011/10/23 Tom Giordano <tomgiordano83@xxxxxxxxx> Fastboot without USB is a bit pointless, I don't know why they would both including it in the bootloader, but if you can't see anything in lsusb it is certainly broken.

Im fairly sure that fastboot has no USB, I've not had this problem with any of the other devices I've tried it with, from my linux box doing an lsusb just shows no USB devices, I've tried it on a windows PC and OSX just to be sure. I also tried using USBTrace on my windows box and its not seeing any sort of activity on the USB port when its in fastboot mode, I can get the thing into FTM and it's connectable via QPST so im fairly sure there is something up with fastboot mode..... unless you have any other ideas I could try On 23 Oct 2011, at 00:50, Tom Giordano wrote: The board files should be fairly easy to add (assuming the 2.6.32 source is correct). Can you pull a config from your device so I can test it compiles before I upload source (I can't find a Turies rom). USB should work in fastboot, maybe you have a permissions problem (if using linux run it as root). USB is deliberately disabled in recovery by ZTE's FTM_MODE config switch.

It comes with a 2.6.35 kernel, so I checked the Skate and Roamer source but was unable to build a kernel using that since the board files are missing. I also noticed that when I reboot the device into recovery or fastboot mode there is no USB, is this on purpose?
