ZTE Open Phone will not boot after 1.1 Update

I got the download for the official 1.1 update from ZTE. I have followed the instructions, but when the phone rebooted it goes to a blank screen after playing the firefox boot animation. I let it sit there for about 10 min and it wouldn't respond. Finally had to pull the battery.

I tried the md5 check, and I get the following error:

Finding file_list package... Opening file_list package... Verifying file_list package... E:failed to open /system/etc/verify.zip (No such file or directory) E:signature verification failed


I tried to reinstall the update and got this:

-- Install /sdcard... Finding update package... Opening update package... Verifying update package... E:failed to verify whole-file signature E:signature verification failed Installation aborted.

Is there a way to restore my phone? I've been searching the internet and I keep getting linked back to the ZTE Open site, but the old images seem to have been removed.

Right now, when I boot the phone I get the FireFox OS logo, then the fox animation, then I get a quick bright flash of white before the screen goes out.


If anyone could help me, I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

I have version 1.0.1 and I want to upgrade. The reason I haven't done it yet is because I recently bought the phone second hand. But I am unable to update it and what happens is the circular icon indicating that something is happening shows up, then disappears and there is no message about updating. If I cannot upgrade it, is there some other way to upgrade the browser because I cannot use it properly at the moment. Thanks

I waited patiently for the OS update hoping it would solve my email problem. It doesn't.

Here's the setup:

I have an IMAP account with SSL from my hosting company. I manually entered the account information. The phone happily accepts that information. The account is added. The inbox shows up with the correct messages. Then the problem starts:

1. I tap on a message. 2. A new window opens and displays the header information 3. Instead of the body of the message, I only see the progress loop going on forever.

Here's what I've done so far:

1. Soft reset 2. Hard reset. 3. Install OS V 1.1 4. Check with my hosting company, they were very courteous and checked my email account. Nothing was wrong there and I can get my mail with my computer and iPad.

What's going on? Am I the only one having this problem?

I have Firefos OS 1.0.1.0-01003 and I have seen that Firefox 1.1 has been released, I try to check for updates and it says that my system is up to date. I read somewhere that rebooting the phone solves it but that didn't work.

Why my system doesn't detect the update? Do I have to call my service provider or manufacturer about that?

My mom, without knowing I'm anti-google *don't let my opinions influence any of these answers please*, bought me a Samsung Galaxy Discover with Ice Cream Sandwich.

Samsung Galaxy Discover is not on this list though. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/will-firefox-work-my-mobile-device

My main question is will it ever be? And can I attempt an installation anyways? Or is it absolutely unheard of for a device not on here to support Firefox OS? Because in the end, it's still Ice Cream Sandwich. The only reason it might not work is because Discovers are moderately cheap phones.

Update: I've realized I put this under marketplace. I'm new to forums and I don't know how or if I can change that tag. Don't hate me please :(

Hey all,

I use an Alcatel One Touch Fire with Firefox OS 1.1.0.0-prerelease, Firmware Version 01010B and Hardware Version 11. After the device is left unused for a few hours, the display cannot be switched on again. When connected to a PC, the blue lamp turns on, but there is no other reaction and I cannot get access to the SD Card. "adb devices" gets me a ???????????? no permissions even though external debugging is activated. The issue can only be resolved by doing a hard reboot (remove the battery).

What could the problem be? Is it hardware related and I should contact the vendor? Or is it a bug within Firefox OS?

Greetings

I've been using ZTE Open for months now but i have a problem. It hangs most of the times. First of all i thought it was an early build(1.0) so i installed 1.1(stable), 1.2, 1.3 and running 1.4 now but the problem is same. It hangs! and when it does i have to lock the phone and wait for sometime to unlock it or just direct remove the battery(sometimes it doesn't solve the problem but sometimes it does). I can't now know for sure that will i be able to receive my incoming call or not? It just freezes most of the times. Tried so many things like clearing cache installing different ROMs(1.2, 1.3) etc but same problem Anyone having the same problem?

Any suggestions?

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=953214

To put it shortly, if i download an update for HERE Maps it always says there is an "error while downloading the update". This is both on 4G and on my WiFi, which works fine. Updates for other apps than HERE Maps have no issues either.

I've filed this bug in December last year, and it still affects me after I updated to Firefox OS 1.3 today. My issue seems similar to http://mzl.la/13yCf0g but the solution given there doesn't work, it still keeps nagging me about the HERE Maps update. I was hoping anyone here might know a solution

I filed five bugs in November and December last year. To my surprise and disappointment, none have been triaged or answered by the Firefox OS developers. I do know they answer other bug reports. Does anyone know why this might be? Are there not enough developers to process all bug reports? Or is there something wrong with my bug reports in particular?

Hi, I have a ZTE Open and its working very nicely, but when I opened looked at it today, my music app seemed to have disappeared. I don't think I deleted it through the normal process when I was debugging my app earlier today so I'm a bit confused.

Anyway I would really like my music app back and can't find it on the marketplace. I tried installing the Gaia version onto the phone using the App Manager but it seems the github version is not currently working.

Whats happened?

My phone is using lots of data even at night when I'm asleep. My usage report says I have only used 167mb but AT&T says I have used almost 3gb. So I turned off the data on the phone and it stopped. My next test is the mail app. I have noticed when it checks for my mail at gmail it hangs and just keeps on spinning. I have to reboot the phone to get it to stop. So maybe the mail app is chewing through my data when it gets hung up.. Any ideas?? I love the phone just wish it would not use 30mb an hour.

Thanks for your help.

hello

i have a ZTE Open C, Firefox OS

with an Orange SIM card that works well in phone call and SMS

i added an account in the Mail app

the list of received mail appears OK

when i want to load a mail it takes anything from 10 minutes to above one hour

sending one it took 12 hours without success lat night

i guess this bhahvior is not normal, what can be done

this is the situation with Wifi

using Data with the cellular network is just simply impossible, words like Port Mandataire HTTP, Hote Mandataire HTTP et Autentification (in the french GUI) seems to be almost unknown on the web

Hi! I Install rooted firmware here: http://en.comebuy.com/developer-firefox-os-open-c.html. The main reason was to install Russian keyboard. Then I compiled and installed Gaia 1.3 with Russian keyboard. All Correct.

I learned that the new official firmware from ZTE already includes Russian keyboard. And I wanted to try it. However, I get an error when trying to flash the phone using sd card or Open_C_upgrade_Tool. Error is "E:failed to verify whole-file signature E:signature verification failed Installation aborted"

How i may restore default firmware?
