Credit goes to whoever made this tool. "loonycgb2" ??? Oh, and the dude who found the programmer file. "deadman96385"

This tool has been heavily modified for the ZTE Blade Z Max, it was originally posted as the axon 7 tool. Not all features have been included.

ZTE Blade Z Max EDL Tool
BAT-program for Flash / Backup / Restore / Unlock the phone in EDL mode
Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008 (COM ...)

!!! Whatever you do, you do at your own risk !!!"
!!! If you are not sure of yourself do not use this program !!!



Special requirements (read first) !!!
1. The program must be unpacked
2. Before using the program, make sure that:
- It is desirable to copy the program to the root of the disc, for example: C:\ZTE_BLADE_Z_MAX_edl\ or D:\C:\ZTE_BLADE_Z_MAX_edl\
- You launched this program as administrator
- You have drivers installed, preferably original for ZTE Blade Z Max
3. Read carefully what the program displays on the screen (I specially wrote the tips, the information is very useful, many questions disappear)


Features of the program:
1. Automatically reboot the phone into EDL mode
2. Finds the connected phone and forces the COM-port speed to 115200
3. Can flash , backup, restore
4. Analyzes folders for missing required files
5. and others ...)))


Structure of program folders:
1. Folder flash - in this folder you need to copy the files you want to flash
Subfolders:
folder full - if you want to flash full firmware (official, adapted for EDL mode), then in this folder you need to put all the files from the firmware for EDL mode:
its name usually looks like this: A2017 _......._ FULL_EDL
folder boot - if you want to flash your kernel file, you need to put a file named: boot.img in this folder (the file name must be exactly that!)
folder recovery - if you want to flash your recovery file, you need to put a file named: recovery.img in this folder (the file name must be exactly that!)
folder modem - if you want to flash your modem file, you need to put a file named: NON-HLOS.bin in this folder (the file name must be exactly that!)
folder splash - if you want to flash your splash file, you need to put a file named: splash.img in this folder (the file name must be exactly that!)
2. Folder backup - the folder contains backup copies of the phone partitions created by the program
Subfolders:
folder all - this folder contains backups of all partitions, except userdata
folder full - this folder contains backup of all partitions included in the FULL EDL firmware
folder boot - this folder contains a backup of the boot partition
folder recovery - this folder contains a backup of the recovery partition
folder modem - this folder contains a backup of the modem partition
folder splash - this folder contains a backup of the splash partition
folder efs - this folder contains backup of the efs partition
3. Folder unlock - contains all the necessary files to unlock (do not touch it!)
4. Folder logs - contains all the logs of the program
5. Folder tools - contains all the necessary files for the program (do not touch it!)


For those who still do not understand how to flash (FAQ):
Question: I want to flash a patched or original boot, how to do this ???
Answer: Download the boot you need, rename it to boot.img and place it in the folder ZTE_BLADE_Z_MAX_edl\flash\boot\. Run the program ZTE_BLADE_Z_MAX_edl.bat and select Flash -> Flash Boot

Question: I want to flash the modem, how to do this ???
Answer: Download or take the NON-HLOS.bin file from firmware and put it in the folder ZTE_BLADE_Z_MAX_edl\flash\modem\. Run the program ZTE_BLADE_Z_MAX_edl.bat and select Flash -> Flash Modem

To OP. Great finding. I am working on the bootloader for a ZTE Warp 6 (N9518) so this and the Axon 7 Threads content will definitely help out I believe. Now as for those fellas who helped hats off to them... Especially Mr DeadMan as without his firehoses he gave me when we were working on a project id not have finished up a bunch of ZTE related stuff. Those programmers take time to get from the already hard to find or dump firmware.
