Hi all

I've managed to create a CWM recovery for the Zen Ultrafone 701HD..... Thought I'd share this too...

For my tutorial on Rooting the same phone see here :-

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2283125

See the above link to activate USB debugging and install ADB drivers.....

CREDITS:-


I've Tested the CWMr on my own Phone....It Works..

This was made through the resources already available on various threads in XDA..
All credits to the original developers...

Special thanks to Koush Dutta for his online CWM revovery builder.... works like a charm..

I take DO NOT responsibility for any damages - It worked on my phone, no reason it should
not work on the other 701HDs out there.... Take a backup of all important stuff... Better safe than sorry..

STEP 1 - INSTALL PHONE DRIVERS

Connect your phone to your computer via USB.

Go to control panel -> device manager after a few minutes

Right click on Zen Ultrafone and update drivers ... required drivers are attached in above link.

Your device manager should not normally have any unrecognized hardware after this step. ( see attached Image).

The"Android Composite ADB Interface" MUST be listed by now... if not recheck your steps again.

Disconnect and restart your phone and your computer and make sure it stays that way.

STEP 2 -INSTALL THE USB VCOM DRIVER

This driver helps the computer recognize the phone's flash memory when it is SWITCHED OFF.

Disconnect your phone and switch it off... remove battery and put it back in just to make sure.

Keep device manager in windows open.

Connect the phone now.

The computer should list the Preloader in device manager with a yellow triangle.

Right click and install the drivers... accept any prompts to install unsigned drivers as they appear.

Disconnect the phone..

STEP 3 - FLASH THE CWM RECOVERY


Download and extract SP Flash tools to a folder.

Place the scatter file and the recovery image in a separate folder

Open SP Flash tools select the scatter loading file given

CAREFULLY UNCHECK ALL BOXES EXCEPT RECOVERY!! - this is essential!!

Click on recovery and choose the recovery image provided

Press 'Download' button on SP Flash tools.... DO NOT hit the firmware update button...

Now reconnect your phone.... accept any prompts...

When the Green ring appears, you are done...



Please hit thanks..... and please JOIN the forum and leave some feedback...


Edit: - I am somehow unable to uplaod the CWM recovery to xda.... meanwhile i've uploaded it here..

Alternate (easier) method

This method needs a rooted phone-

Install mobile uncle tools from Play Store.

Place the recovery.img provided in root of SD card.

open mobile uncle tools and flash the recovery.

Thats It!!

Sorry to hear that man. I dont believe the canvas is any better in terms of quality control. Where did you buy the ultrafone from? Mine came in pretty good packing.

Looks like I've lost a valuable developer resource

I'd suggest you go for the Panasonic p51. Just wait a few more months - its price is falling by the day

Oh yes... I Forgot that flashing stock ROM does the trick :D

But then I guess we will also have to remove the custom recovery to avail warranty . just in case :confused: ??

Yes. For warranty, you'll have to restore everything to stock state. The stock recovery can be flashed via stools too. Just replace the cmw with the stock recovery in my tutorial.

BTW. I am sure we can find a lot of clone phones of our zen 701. Notably canvas HD, xolo Q1000. Celkon signature HD

Maybe in near future we could port the best roms from them. What say ?

No issues with WiFi here. Tried connecting through public hotspots , mobile thetering, used this phone as hotspot, used WiFi direct with super beam - all work like a charm.

Looks like my WiFi router has gone numb due to cold these days :D

Any suggestions to improve signal strength of router ? The weak signal is really testing my patience :banghead:

    Haven't tried to in root it yet. Guess flashing the stock ROM will do.

    Could be due to interference. Try a selecting manual frequency in router
