hello ! i just received some days ago my Z7 Max from lenteen.fr, this phone is just ****ing awsome! without doing anything, my phone is stock rooted, with all gapps installed (full package) with a rom multilingual (the Nubia ROM, without any chinese bloat,
here you can find some screenshoot of the ROM : http://eoxus.free.fr/z7max/
by the way, in the network setting you can choose on what kind of network (HDD-LTE, FD-LTE, CDWMA, GSM...) you wanna work by order of preferance LTE/CDWMA/GSM by example.. i have the 4G everywhere ! this is possible with the Free Mobile network (HDD-LTE) .
On the "free config panel" by logging on the website interface the 4G is not activated because he say that my phone is not compatible with this kind of network (of course this is not true but Free Mobile don't recognize the phone as a 4G one)
i also was a iD to modify the build.prop with a editor to change the phone model and let the network believe that this is another phone, such as a Galaxy S5 who work without any mod on the network.
so here is my opinon on this phone who is really good, battery, camera, look, screen, sound.... i was with a Galasy S3 32G before.
if somebody want a dump of my rom, i can try to install a custom recovery and make a backup. i don"t want to change the rom now, this is just perfect :good:
some custom rom are already coming, custom cwm and TWRP recovery too, and for thoose who know how to use the search button you will find a post about the Z7 mini on Xda who give some good tips too.
btw i also confirm the MHL 3.0, 4K video and more and more....
bye bye everybody
I received a Nubia Z7 Max from 1949deal. (the name of the shop is mentioned as a warning)
I think i've to conclude that they soft bricked my device before sending it out.
1. I've tried to towelroot & superSu & flashify to root and flash CWM.
Towelroot boots my device like mentioned in the app after "make it rain". SuperSu failes to install the update and advises to reboot and try again...over and over again. Flashify says that i'm rooted but didn't get permission, i should check SuperSu.
Some browsing around on the devices learned me that there is a Chinese application present wich is called "ROOT followed by some chinese characters" and an anchor as icon. (This application has also stopped working at every boot) . So i think the webshop people rooted the device poorely.
I failed to get around this and the only option seems to flash another ROM through ADB - fastboot.
2. Fastboot seems corrupt or absent out of the box
- i used the method described here: w w w.netded.com/a/jingpinshouji/2014/0724/28821.html (and also mentioned in this thread) This failed (i don't speak chinese so don't know what it said, cmd turned yellow and red)
- booting into fastboot with volume down+ power or from the menu option on the device makes the device boot into a black screen.
- i also tried to flash with adb (using Eclips ADT bundle: h t t ps://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html?hl=sk#download )
Command "fastboot devices" returned nothing while "adb devices" returns "NX505J device".
The command "adb reboot bootloader" makes me boot into the black screen again.
Flashing with "fastboot flash recovery <enter file name>.IMG" returns "waiting for device" for ages, nothing happens.
(more info info about this way of flashing a recovery: w w w.phonearena.com/news/How-to-boot-into-custom- recovery-like-CWM-or-TWRP-on-Android_id54490)
So i'm kind of stuck in here. Does anybody have an idea on how to fix fastboot/bootloader or maybe knows how to fix root?
Maybe another option is flashing an official ROM through stock recovery or an Odin/rkbatchtool-like-tool ?
(Are there official roms provided by ZTE and/or flash tools ?)
Informational: I can boot into android and stock recovery.
Please advise, i'm getting desperade.
Did you switch on debugging mode before CWM? If not, you have to follow this steps.
First of all do a factory reset! Tick everything!
First download Nubia Z7 drivers to your PC. Connect your phone, wait the end of setting up. The set up procedure worgked for me without drivers, because my mobile get drivers inside...
So copy that two root apks to your mobile, run Towel root, wait until reboot. Then run super su apk. If asks what mode, use normal. Reboot. Check super su! Do you have root, if yes OK, if not do it again. Do not step forward without root.
Then use Z7_max_r_e_c_0801.rar. Unrar it! Go to Settings - About phone and tap 4-6 times (I do not remember) to "Build-number" After that you will become developer! Go to the last item in Settings, to "More..." Go into "developer option" Find USB debugging and switch on!
After that connect your phone to PC start Nubia-z7-Max-Tools-0801.exe and follow the steps (Push ENTERS )
At the en of the process, your phone reboot. Copy the latest gapps 4.4.2 from ww w.teamandroid.com/gapps/ to the root of your phone. Swith off your phone. Wair until it vibrate. Vol up + Power button for ~5 secs, then you are in CWM, if you do everything well. It is chinese, but do not worry!
The first line is reboot. You need the second one. Push Vol down once then Power. Push Power again, find gapps zip with Vol buttons, then push Power. Wait the end of process, go to the last line push Power, then Power on the first line to reboot.
That is it! You have GOOGLE!
After it in fastboot mode you can use international rom from my former post. In fastboot mode you have black screen! Do not worry it is in fastboot mode after one vibration!
how can instal this rom?This is the link for international ROM for ZTE Z7 Max!
Use it in fastboot mode!
Multilanguage, google, etc.
I hope it helps for everyone!
I hope some devs will have enough time to cook something from it...
Switch off your mobile, wait until vibration. Push Vol down + Power, wait until vibration. Push to PC, run Nubia_Z7_Max_Multi\Tź¬¸Tó¬˙NX505J.bat
Wait until reboot! That is it!
DO NOT USE Sergey Shikharev ADVISED WAY!!!!
