(For ICS rooting, check this out: CLICK , so far this seems to work with every MT6575 phone that runs on ICS)
Everything you need is HERE
Start the flash tool, click on Scatter-loading, select the MT6575_Android_scatter_emmc2.txt from the Rootfix directory. It should look like this:
You phone is OFF. Take out the battery, put it back in. In the flash tool click on DOWNLOAD. Connect the phone to your pc via USB cable.
If this is the first time you are doing this, your pc will start to look for the right drivers. Point Windows to the Driver directory inside the flash tool's directory. On Vista, it'll look something like this:
If the drivers are installed, the whole procedure will look like this:
Once the flashing process is done, take out the battery, put it back in and boot the phone. Your phone should now be rooted, a Super User application should be installed.
Check "Up to Root", "Root Explorer" and "Mount File System".
The latest firmare from Zopo
or download it HERE
This is how flashing looks like in "real time" (4 minutes of boredom) ;-)
Here's a firmware for the IHTC One X phone, dated April 2 2012, it should work on the ZP100 as well:
to the ROOT of your sd-card. Turn off the phone. Connect the phone with the usb-cable to the pc. Then press and hold
Power and VOL +
The update will start automatically.
Here's an instruction on how to get the latest ICS firmware running, written by pbucci, thank you so much for that:
OK, with the permission of Colonel I'll try to be more helpfull publishing the four steps I've followed during my several flashing with ICS:
GETTING STARTED IMPORTANT TO DO BEFORE Rooting:
1) SAVE the IMEI.
The installation process for the Rom can wipe the IMEI and if you want to be able to rebuild and fix it you must have it backupped.
If the WIPE happens and you do not have a copy ... you'll never get connection to the mobile network. For IMEI SAVING you need to have rooted your phone:
- Open the Tools Zopo.
- select the item IMEI backup and back up: this will create a backup file in the root named IMEI.bck.
- find the file and copy it on the external SD card and if possible also on the external PC, anywhere you are shure it is safe!
N.B.: if you prefer you can locate the IMEI folder and copy it with a root file explorer... but I prefer simple things.
2) Once saved the IMEI, you should perform a factory restore erasing the Internal SD card. After the restore make sure you are still able to find and access files IMEI.bck (otherwise you made something wrong in copying, or you put it somewhere that will be "scretched" during the flash process: in such a case repeat from step 1)
3) download the ROM from the ICS: http://www.zopomobile.com/xiazai.php
4) download the software for the rooting of the ICS: http://115.com/file/c2lb9udn
NB: the rooting is required if you have to rebuild the IMEI, so before you have downloaded this SW do not start flashing.
PS: The Chinese are so many ... so it is best to do the download after they went to sleep
PART TWO: The Flashing.
NOTE: From now on, I describe what I did and it worked without problems on Zopo ZP100.
If you want, proceed at your own risk and I can not guarantee that everyone will have the same behaviour
The Flashing: I did it as usual with the same tools used to install the Flash ROM GB as is described in this forum
5) Unzip (unrar) the contents of the zip file with the rom, turn the phone off and remove the battery, then put it back in leaving the phone off
6) Run the flash tool
7) Choose the scatter file from the unzipped folder, and then start flashing with download button
8) wait a few seconds and then connect the phone (leaving it off). The flash process will begin.
9) Wait for the OK and the big green, then a few seconds and finally disconnect the phone.
10) Turn on the device and finally ... the ICS is running (if the phone doesn't switch on, put out the battery and then put it back in and turn on)
PART THREE: The Rooting.
Surprise! Below shows "invalid imei" and you can not log onto the mobile network.
If you followed the preliminary steps: NO PROBLEM. otherwise PANIC. Try sending your imei to Zopo asking them to send you back a new encrypted file.
11) Unzip the rooting SW previously downloaded, in a folder for rooting
(beware: I am in windows7 and had no problems ... It seems that the executables etc are for windows ... I do not know if they work on other OS or virtual machines)
12) Connect your phone (turned on) and check that the USB debug mode is active.
13) Run the file .bat and follow instructions carefully (waiting for reboots.)
14) If everything went well at the end of the phone will be rooted.
If you notice between the various reboot advices that it has not found your phone, recheck the connections and the debug mode and repeat the procedure.
PART FOUR: IMEI fixing (if you lost it)
15) Execute a file explorer in root mode (the rooting should install a root explorer that looks red hat style, that is fine but look on the top part of the screen and be sure that it is R/W and not Read Only mode.)
16) Go into the folder
/data/nvram/md/NVRAM/NVD_IMEI and look at the content. There should be a file of the exact size of IMEI.bck that you had stored erlier
(In my case was called MP0B_001 but I do not know if it is always called the same way).
Copy it in a safe position in order to avoid risks.
17) Rename the file IMEI.bck as the file located at point 16
18) Copy the renamed file in the folder /data/nvram/md/NVRAM/NVD_IMEI replacing the old one if you have not "moved "
19) Reboot your phone and wait. With the IMEI restore the phone will connect regularly to mobile network (Beware: The system initially can still report "invalid IMEI" (because cached from previous power off), but then it will anyway connect to the GSM network and correct it. For subsequent reboot it does not report any more)
Now you can finally enjoy ICS (PS: I had the google play already installed this time)
