This is my build of Koush’s ClockWorkMod Recovery 6.0.4.9. This recovery is common to all ZTE devices with board name atlas40 (e.g. ZTE Blade III, ZTE Acqua, V889D, V880E etc).

Do not mirror my builds! Please post a link to this page instead.

This recovery is fully working with goodies such as repeatable keys and adb sideload support. Use volume keys to navigate menus and power button to select.

Do not use this recovery to flash official updates from ZTE website! You need to repack them for ClockWorkMod or use the stock recovery to install.

How to make clean ROM dump/backup of your device (before you root or install cwm): (recommended)

  • download ZTE USB drivers
  • download Android SDK platform-tools (Windows, Linux, Mac) to get adb and fastboot
  • download recovery-cwm60xx-atlas40.img recovery image
  • create a new directory somewhere and copy adb.exe, fastboot.exe and recovery-cwm60xx-atlas40.img into it
  • plug in your device via USB cable and install drivers (make sure you’ve enabled USB debugging on your device)
  • change into the directory you’ve created and execute following commands in terminal window (boots into recovery instead of flashing it)

adb reboot bootloader

fastboot boot recovery-cwm60xx-atlas40.img

  • select backup & restore -> backup (Seriously, always backup your device before you install anything!)

How to install ClockWorkMod Recovery (windows):

  • download ZTE USB drivers
  • download Android SDK platform-tools (Windows, Linux, Mac) to get adb and fastboot

fastboot reboot

  • congratulations, you have installed cwm on to your device
  • boot into ClockWorkMod by pressing volume up (or down) while powering on or using ‘adb reboot recovery’
  • select backup & restore -> backup (Seriously, always backup your device before you install anything!)

How to root your device via recovery:

If you have already gained root access with some other root method, you can flash recovery using Terminal Emulator:

  • copy recovery-cwm60xx-atlas40.img to the root of your phone’s sdcard
  • execute following commands in terminal emulator

su

dd if=/sdcard/recovery-cwm60xx-atlas40.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p17
