Has anybody captured the OTA url? Like many I have one that I moved over to T-Mobile and can't pull the OTA without an active ATT sim.

Over Christmas I tried a family member's AT&T SIMM and still couldn't upgrade. I wonder if the SIMM has to be in the phone for a few days?

I activated old ATT sim card (https://www.att.com/GoPhoneWeb/goPho...=activatePayGo) for free and pop-it into Z958.
Had to try few time but finally was able to download the update - however, it couldn't install , phone just shut downed. Retried and same issue.

I can try again, but does anyone have any instructions/guide for extracting OTA for non-rooted ZTE ZMax 2 ? If so I can try it.

I have a ZTE Zmax 2 and would like to know what I can do to help get this OTA update out for everyone. It is being used on T-mobile currently, but I have a few old GoPhone ATT SIM cards that I haven't activated yet.

Let me know what I can do!

It seems this is the best way to do it: http://www.****************/2016/01/2...ndroid-device/

I will try again next week when I have access to the phone!

I tried the same several times - but couldn't find the URL.

Also have another problem, phone downloads the update (takes forever) but couldn't install it. It tries but just shuts down. And when I manually boot it, it says update failed.

So I'm hoping getting the OTA would fix this.

I have read that the update is big (1.1 GB) so it will take awhile to download. Do you mind sharing the logcat?

I plan on following the guide but it would be disappointing to know that you have tried and nothing came out of it

I'm not a tech or anything like that. I just wanted the update pretty bad like everybody else. I'm using my ZTE ZMAX 2 with a Tracfone account (I'm a light user).
I received the update last night by trying these steps...
1. I powered down the phone.
2. Removed Sim card.
3. I went into Recovery mode (Volume up + Power) (I held Volume up till I got in)
4. Wipe Cache Partition (it took a while)
5. Reboot Phone (Without Sim Card)
6. Go to settings, Att software update, and check for updates.
That was all it took. It started downloading, which looked like a 2 part download, because it temporarily stopped and started downloading again.
So good luck! I know it worked for me. I tried all week checking for updates till I got it last night using these steps! Doesn't hurt to try you might get surprised like me and start enjoying Marshmallow Madness!
**Sidenote... I noticed in Developer options, it has a setting for OEM Unlocking Bootloader!
