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-cwm6036-8225.img recovery image
  • create a new directory somewhere and copy adb.exe, fastboot.exe and recovery-cwm6036-8225.img into it
  • plug in your device via USB cable and install drivers (make sure you’ve enabled USB debugging on your device)
  • cd into the directory you created and execute following commands in terminal window (boots into recovery instead of flashing it)
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot boot recovery-cwm6036-8225.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

  • congratulations, you have installed cwm on to your device
  • boot into ClockWorkMod by pressing volume 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:

  • download SuperSU and save it to your sdcard
  • follow instructions on how to install/boot ClockWorkMod recovery
  • install SuperSU zip in ClockWorkMod recovery

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

  • copy recovery-cwm6036-8225.img to the root of your phone’s sdcard
  • execute following commands in terminal emulator
su
dd if=/sdcard/recovery-cwm6036-8225.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.3/by-num/p16
