Important Notes
Be aware, that installing any stock ROM, is only possible with a stock recovery on board, or with restoring the stock recovery itself - in case it has been changed. If you return your device to a service point with custom ROM or recovery on, it would void your warranty.
Also note, that we take no responsibility at all for any data loss, or damage you may cause to your device. Any modifications shall be carried out on your own responsibility!
The modified software will not unlock your phone. And we don't know about any unofficial unlocking methods either. However if you do, don't hesitate to share.

Useful tips for installing
  • Read through the current steps before actually start a method, and apply the steps precisely
  • Plug the phone directly to the computer, don't use any extension cables, adapters, hubs, etc ...
  • It's important that you use the rear USB plugs of the PC, instead of the front ones (doesn't matter in case of notebooks)
  • If you're not sure about the drivers, (re)install them. If the computer still doesn't detect the phone, then turn it off while it's connected to the computer, then press the (phone) power button shortly. The PC should find the phone after this, and install it (could be a solution especially for XP)
  • Try another USB cable, or if you have the chance, test it with another computer
  • Between unsuccessfull attempts, you can also consider rebooting the computer
Next v2 custom ROM with CWM recovery
Installing CWM recovery (beta)
  1. Install the official ZTE drivers, if you haven't done it already.
  2. Download this CWM package to your computer, and check it with MD5 Checksum Verifier for MD5: d69833693794242e78d990eec33cdb66, then extract it.
  3. Go to the phone Settings > Development Settings > USB debugging > check it.
  4. Plug the phone to the computer via USB.
  5. Start the extracted recovery.exe file, and wait a bit. The process has finished if you see the press any key to continue ... message.
  6. Press any key to close the application, unplug the device from the PC, and you're done.
The recovery is available by pressing the POWER + VOLUME DOWN buttons, from a phone-off state.
There are some custom roms, where you can get to the recovery from the power menu too.
You can step in recovery with the VOLUME UP and DOWN buttons, and use the power button for ok/enter.


Installing Next v2 custom ROM
All user applications (installed subsequently), settings, contacts, sms', etc ... will be deleted by installing the software, thus everybody should make a backup.
  1. Download the Next v2 custom ROM, to your computer and check it for MD5: 09f15186c9fe031dd1f9572d682e14f5.
  2. Copy the downloaded ROM_NeXt_v2.zip file (without extracting it), to the root of an SD card.
  3. Put the SD card in your phone, while it's turned off.
  4. Press and hold the POWER + VOLUME DOWN buttons, until the Intel logo shows up.
  5. After the logo appeared, release the buttons, and wait until the recovery loads.
  6. Choose the install zip from sdcard > choose zip from external sdcard option, and browse the ROM_NeXt_v2.zip file.
  7. After the successfull installation, choose reboot system now.

Right, I didn't think of that.
New links are up.

Btw, the Next v2 custom rom with CWM Recovery is on its way here, if anyone would be interested.

I want romanian stock recovery version: GXI_V1.0.0B01 Because my phone is that version how ever I bought this phone in Finland. But I'm assuming that is same stock recovery.

I need because my phone is freezing/booting. I was going to return this phone back to where I bought it.

Okay, since the Slovakian recovery is already done, and comes together with the Hungarian, Polish, and Macedonian ones to the OP tonight, the next will be the Romanian recovery, likely in the following few days.

We don't have an unroot method right now, and not planning one either, so the best for you would be just to wait a bit for the Romanian reco and restore your stock ROM with it. And then the root will be gone.

Which .zip file? The custom ROM .zip file is for CWM.
The stock ROM .zip files are for the stock recoveries. The description is on its way for that.
