Flash ZTE Blade Q Lux

Trying to flash my niece’s phone with other rom which hope to have light weight OS, but no luck and end up with infinite boot screen load 🙁

Google around but also no luck to get any useful info (at least for this model of phone), some people sharing to use SP Flash,  any other alternative which doesn’t work for my case too. End up I found the solution from ZTE site, which is to download the original rom and flash it…. phew….

  1. Download original rom from ZTE support or here.
  2. Copy into sd card (FAT32) formatted.
  3. Boot your phone into recovery mode by pressing Volume Up + Power key.
  4. Press Power key again once you are in recovery mode to enter menu selection mode.
  5.  Press Volume Down key to select the menu and Volume Up key to enter.
    (Recommend to wipe data/factory reset before apply update from sd card)
  6. Done!

My New Gadget – Pine64

Here is how I did to install the OS (using MacOS)

  1. Download image from Pine64.com or Pine64.org.
  2. Format your Micro SD card using Disk Utility.
  3. Launch terminal and list the available disk using diskutil command as below (we going to use disk2 base on the identifier):
  4. Unmount the disk.

  5. Unzip the downloaded image and burn the img file into disk.

  6. Upon burning successfull, you will see the message as below:
  7. Eject the disk if it still mounted.

    p/s: For Windows user, you may format using Disk Management tool under [Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools\Computer Management], and burn img file using Win32DiskImager. And if you feel the writing speed is too slow in MacOS, you may try using rdisk instead of disk, as they both using different write mechanism.

When [The Mermaid] Not Just Comedy


Yet another long-awaited comedy by Stephen Chow.
Not surprise, it hit on top of box office record in China, and good comments widespread across different media.
This movie delivered more than just comedy. It humorously depicts human egoism who treat all creature as nothing but we can monetize.

But have we ever think of, we are just part the world, and we are not suppose to treat all living creature are here for us. They have their own life, they play the role as important as us to make the world a better place to stay.

Classic dialog I like the most from the movie:

如果世界上连一滴干净的水,一口干净的空气都没有,挣再多的钱又有什么意义。~The Mermaid~
