Due to I was deinstalling hardcoded chinesse apps the launcher (and the
device) turns unestable and get lots of error in screen.... (TIP:
First you must delete the widgets from the desktop and then (and only
then) deinstall the apps ... )
I must to "burn" a special recovery SD to restore it...
As Alejandro said the tool is PhoneixCard...
This tool is a little tricky ... Only works (almost with my tests on
Windows 7 ) only if you has an only removable unit and this unit is
your SD unit.... If you (like me ) has an integrated usb
MMC , MS, SD, XD, etc. multireader.... you must disable ( at windows
device manager ) all of the related unit except the SD one...
You select the image , check the "Product" option , press the "Burn"
button and wait a few minutes... and voila! you get a recovery SD
Now, power offf (if not already) the Mele device insert the recovery
SD and turn it on ... The blue led ... starts to blink...
You must wait to the blue led stop blinking ... then extract the SD and
turn it on... The device should be completely recovered
Here some firmware links.... (I used the last 1.4 version ... )
Last firmware version (v1.4)
Original version 1.2
