A2017X DFU MultiDL Tool…
The Ultimate DFU to EDL Mode Unbrick Tool



DFU bricked ??....It seems opening the phone is history.... ;)
DFU bricked ??....Throw away that EDL Cable.... ;)



My friend @Aviver saw this post on myzte.cn : http://www.myzte.cn/thread-356482-1-1.html
@Teet1 linked us the download and @Aviver could test it on his bricked DFU phone and guess...IT WORKED !!!


A) How To : Follow the setup here and read a more in depth review of @AnonVendetta HERE

B) Tool : New ZTE DFU_MultiDL_A2017X_Tool.exe ;) ( english setup )




Free translation :
[B][A2017 save brick] official tools to save brick to the DFU mode free disassemble into the 9008[/B]
today to help the Friends group @ Chi Feng Lan Moon Shadow shoes cracked a flash tool.
After selecting the port with software, DFU can actually enter 9008, preventing brick.
After entering 9008, you can switch to miflash or Qualcomm qpst.
Of course, this software can also be used directly for flashing.
1. Connect the mobile phone to the computer, recommend the system Windows 7, install ZTE's own driver package, 9008 driver package (miflash comes with), miflash brush tool (alternate) . Install the provided SalesMultiDL_A2017 tool (this is the official after-sales tool, provided by the netizen, invade and delete), and find the installation directory, the patch file is overwritten by the main program, and the crack is completed.
2. Press and hold the power button to decrease the volume to enter the factory mode. If you can't boot directly, skip this step in dfu mode.
3. According to the help file of the software, view and select the port. Displaying “Connected” means that the machine is recognized. Click the green play button to start, observe the restart of the mobile phone, and disconnect the data cable to enter the port 9008. This step may be different, there are also cases where you select the port directly into the 9008. You must observe the port of the computer device manager in the form of dfu or edl 9008, 4. After entering 9008, theoretically select the installation package from below and click on the green player. The button can start to brush, here ZTE official line brush package is not available. So this step turns off the software and changes to the miflash brush package to try to brush. -------------------------------------------------- ----- Other ways to enter the 9008 port: 1. In the early version, press and hold the power button and the volume up and down buttons simultaneously. 2, you can enter the system or twrp, computer command line mode, adb shell reboot edl. 3, can not boot, search for millet engineering line production method to make millet engineering line to enter. 4. Disassemble the test point to enter 9008. This method can be replaced by the tool provided in this post.

Progress?

Working on it. I managed to get an account made for the site! :victory: Only to find out you also have to be in a certain user group to be able to download. :( The site uses a point system to determine what user group you have access to. To get point you basically have to spend time on, and do things in the site. So that's where I'm at.

Thnx. Also having an account there but we have the same problem. That's why someone who's more regularly on these sites could help.

You could also download it via the Baidu link. Someone just posted it but you have to register for Baidu. I have a registered account there (had to jump through some hoops) but I've managed to download it for you so no one else has to do the same. The download was also painfully slow. Here you go:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/tlrsf4erdnbzsnv/SalesMultiDL_A2017_Crack.7z?dl=0

Create a new thread on it if you like for a guide! This will be extremely useful for permanent bricks. Nice find :good:

GOOD NEWS FOR EVERYONE !!!!
When your phone is in DFU and nothing seems to work to get EDL to work and connect to 9008.....seems that this tool, once it is installed, running and connected to your phone, you just have to close the program and open MIFLASH to flash your EDL....THAT SIMPLE !


Hereby a quick guide :

1. Download the tool DFU_MultiDL_A2017_tool or from dropbox thnx @Teet1 for his initial upload !
2. Extract the 7z
3. Install the setup.exe (it's in chinese but just follow the '>' and you'll be ok
4. once done, replace the ZTE_Sales_Update_Framework within the program folder on your drive
4a how to get english program UI (until we have a new english setup.exe ready)
Connect your phone
5. Start the program and follow the pictures down below
5.1 Only work with the left button, tap on it and select the first option
5.2 You have to see to which port your phone is connected to, remember that one and choose that one out of the list on 1--USB
5.3 Apply that choice using the right button below
6. After you succesfully noticed your phone was connected, close the program and open Miflash....you should be able to flash an EDL rom again

That's the way @Aviver did re-aviver-ed his phone in DFU mode...that simple !

Seems like the axon7 should be unblickable now :cool:

This is revolutionary stuff, really! Wish it'd come out before I had to open my phone a a month ago. Now I have some regrettable scuffs around the speaker grills on an otherwise spotless device ?

You can replace the Chinese language files in the tool installation directory with the English files in the same directory.
Replace "\Resource\Locales\ZH_CN\DL_WCDMA.lang" with "\Resource\Locales\US_EN\DL_WCDMA.lang".You'll get a full version of English.

English version update

Replace the lan_CHN.ini in your program folder under bin/languages
(or just change the name 'lan_ENG' into 'lan_CHN' and remove the original lan_CHN.ini)

or use ZTE DFU_MultiDL_A2017 Tool (English Version) - extract and replace all the files to your existing program folder thnx @millerz for his work :good:
(or extract it to your desktop and double tap the ZTE_Sales_Update_Framework.exe - that should work too)

If anyone has the time to change the whole setup.exe file to begin the install-setup in english and change the tool UI in english, feel free to upload it here ;)

Not working for me, unfortunately. My A2017U is DFU. When I run this program, everything looks like it's working. It finds the phone, and then the PC will recognize it as 9008. MiFlash will even flash an EDL package, and say it's a success. But when I reboot the phone, it's still not working. I can still only boot into DFU.

I've tried multiple USB ports, installed the program a couple different ways, and tried 3 or 4 different EDL packages. Any ideas?

EDIT: Mine always says "connect state - disconnected," but it seems to force Windows to recognize the phone as 9008. Coul this be part of the issue?

As of what I read the main part is working, that is reconnecting 9008 able to flash an EDL. That's the main goal.
The edl flash seems to be successful as I understand so that's strange... Anyway, did you try the @djkuz edl tool and flash an edl out of his range of U-roms?

HAHA I feel you brother. I bricked my axon 7 after barely getting it replaced through ZTE's advanced exchanged. It was perfect condition, but now the speaker grills are ugly on the corners where I tried to remove them. Getting speaker grills on AliExpress though.

Really? Did you find any at all? Please send a link. I have searched a few times (on AliExpress) but to no avail. Closest one I came to was eBay, but the seller doesn't ship to my country.

I had been using MiFlash, but I switched over and tried the @djkuz tool. Failed again. The log says it "failed to open com port." Is this a driver issue, or something else? I've reinstalled the qualcomm drivers, but maybe I'm missing some other piece?
