@paul-gibson Hello!

Please read the F.A.Q. link in my signature. You can update from the Recovery mode: Volume UP + Power.

And I suggest you to transform your phone into the “global one”. Read Method 1 of the following link.

I am confident that Gearbest fucked up your phone! So best is in my opinion.
To

  • update + clear data to a public Chinese firmware “A”
  • use Method 1 of the guide
  • install whatever firmware you want (clear data, when you upgrade)

@paul-gibson it’s very important that you name the update:

update.zip

and it has to be exactly update.zip

Also you have to place it into the root directory of your phone! Read the F.A.Q.

hi i read the faq and renamed update.zip and downloaded as update.zip but no luck…
