#1

[Image: Hovatek-TWRP-and-Root-for-ZTE-Blade-Root-from-EE-1.png]

The Rook from EE is a carrier-branded ZTE Blade A410 from the UK carrier EE. The device is powered by Mediatek’s MT6735M chipset and runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop. This brief guide will explain how to flash TWRP recovery to this phone and root it.

How do I root the ZTE Blade A410 (Rook from EE)?

I went to: http://www.ztedevice.com/search.html?keyword=A410
and download the update.zip but then i found that with the Flash of the TWRP my phone JT thinks he is a EE ROOK LOL ….so i updated the phone the same to EE ROOK it works but it is sim locked can you help to make a TWRP flash to JT or unlock the sim EE ROOK?

Do you have the scatter file and recovery.img for your phone model?

The only thing i have is:

UK Blade A410 SD card upgrading instruction & software package(JT)-289610B0287BLADE_A410V1.0.0B02

This is found at:
http://www.ztedevice.com/support/8c34e98...c8867.html

with this can you at least make a TWRP version of JT ZTE A410 to flash? I think it could be a solution…

Thank you…

Can i flash the content of the ZTE link that i gave you above using SP flash? This way making a complete install of everything?

Since my JT assumed the name of EE Rook since the TWRP flash i can only update that ZTE Content by SD card and the one of EE not JT so …..i end up with sim locked phone ?

Your help would be of great importance!
Thank you in advance!

What do you mean by : “List the files in the firmware folder”

The files listed in SP Flash?
Hovatek says:
March 20, 2016 at 2:39 pm
yes.
Josehp says:
March 20, 2016 at 3:04 pm
preloader
lk
boot
recovery
logo
secro
tee1
teee2
system
cache
userdata

this is the sp flash window on tab download

with the scatter file provided from TWRP Hovatek for EE Rook

Is this info you need?

I also made a read back and made a rom_0 file with 4kb

I am a bit in the dark about all this please understand

Let me get you straight. The above files are for your exact phone model right?

The files that i listed i only have “recover img” but it is your custom file for flashing TWRP

I listed the files above but after post i understood that they dont have a file path….so they are only indicators ….

So dont have any specific files for my phone….
I only have the files provided at:

http://www.ztedevice.com/support/8c34e98...c8867.html

UK Blade A410 SD card upgrading instruction & software package(JT)-289610B0287BLADE_A410V1.0.0B02

But i cannot do anything with them…..

In conclusion….
Installed on my phone i have:

UK Blade A410 SD card upgrading instruction & software package(EE)-296000B0935BR_EE_BLADE_A410V1.0.0B05

files at: http://www.ztedevice.com/support/cc6fdad...6e8b3.html

So my phone boots as a EE Rook….

updating the files over sd card gives an error:

system expects EE

296000B0935BR_EE_BLADE_A410V1.0.0B05

And i want to install JT

289610B0287BLADE_A410V1.0.0B02

If you can see the last digits one is B05 and other B02
So the TWRP system doenst accept the update

So can you help?
I am a rookie in this besides have flashed some phones but only with instructions…..

I understand your predicament. you’ll need to search for the firmware for your phone model or at least the recovery.img (so we port TWRP). We have no files for your phone model

I will contact the manufacturer and see if they can help!

Thank you

Hi, where can I find the ZTE ADB interface drivers?
The SP Flash tool is stuck at 0%, I’ve tried installing all of the VCOM drivers.
Thanks

The method @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-440.html should work

Thanks, that’s exactly what I followed, but I still can’t flash the recovery image. So do I need the Mediatek drivers only or anything esle from ZTE?
Thanks

1. Did you see the video?
2. What OS is your PC running on?

Miemmo says:

Thanks for your reply. I’ve watched the video and I’m running Win7 64 bits. I removed the ZTE MTP device I had on my PC and when I connect the switched off phone I see that it’s trying to install an MT65xx Android Phone device, but the driver installation fails.
Thanks

Take out the battery and reinsert then hold the volume increase button when connecting
Miemmo says:

Taking out the battery did the trick. Thanks a lot!

Hi regarding the JT phone problem asked above i am still stuck with the EE ROM….. and sim locked to EE

Zte doesnt want to help me…not sure why…will never ever buy again from them ?

Contacted JT in the UK….but i dont have many confidence in that!

YOU MUST RENAME THE TITLE TO EE ROCK ONLY IN THE POST!
Since many phones are A410 ZTE but carrier versions…users like me will be confused and try to make the operation and end with a problem like me :S

The title already mentioned Rook from EE. Have you been able to find a phone of the same model as yours?

I am also awaiting for JT reply….

My phone is this one:

There is some way of trick the sd update to instal the files of the JT version at?

http://www.ztedevice.com/support/8c34e98...c8867.html

In TWRP shows:

this package is for “p635E40_JT” product; this is a “p635E40_EE”

It says it is a EE because the TWRP version tranformed into an EE but physically it is a JT….

The error number is that: this package is for “p635E40_JT” product; this is a “p635E40_EE”

Cant bypass this? bypassing this i think it will work…..

Email the twrp recovery to [email protected] .
We could attempt some changes
joseph says:

It is not a recovery but an sd card upgrade… it installs the rom by sd card

Just download the file for the JT:

http://www.ztedevice.com/support/8c34e98...c8867.html

Here the EE version:

http://www.ztedevice.com/support/cc6fdad...6e8b3.html

My idea was to tampering the files but you will need to see them both….i can install the EE 100% but not the JT…. ? JT is unlocked free for all sims!

So if you could do a TWRP or mod all A410 will unlock SIM CARD with the JT rom….

This have a couple of files that have in both cases the “update.zip” this the file that we run at TWRP….i already told you last month and posted the links.

Theres is no need to send the files to your email as they have aprox 1gb each so it is better for you to download them!

It would be very important if you manage to help me!

joseph says:
April 24, 2016 at 6:33 pm

Quick question – does this process wipe the apps and data on the phone?

Also, does it matter which build number the phone has?
REPLY
Hovatek says:
May 26, 2016 at 12:03 pm
1. No, it doesn’t
2. It’ll work on any build number so far it’s Rook for EE
