Returning the phone for warranty - reverting to original ROM

Recommended Posts

As I said in a previous topic my Stake has a malfunctioning proximity sensor and I am planning to return it to the service department. I had H3 blues on it. I restored via recovery a backup I made with the original ROM on the phone. All seems fine except I found the cwm recovery is still on it, is it because I took the backup after I installed that? Will this affect my warranty? Anyway to hide it? Or do I need to do something else?

Flash a stock TPT so you get the original Android recovery back, then boot CWM to restore your backup. The command is:

fastboot boot recovery.img
As opposed to the permanent method:
fastboot flash recovery.img

fastboot boot should let you restore your backup, and when you reboot you won't have CWM anymore.

Use the ZTE Updater tool and follow the instructions , then you get the latest available stock rom on your specific ZTE Skate device

Thanks omegavesko! It worked :)

Here's the VIP splash if anybody needs it:

How to flash splash screen image via Terminal on the device:

First copy the img file to sdcard (mtd2new.img for example)

In Terminal:

su (to use superuser)

cat /proc/mtd (list partitions, "mtd2" is the splash part. on my phone)

cat /dev/mtd/mtd2 > /sdcard/mtd2old.img (backup old splash partition)

cat /dev/zero > /dev/mtd/mtd2 (erase mtd2 partition, it says something like "no more space" when finished)

flash_image splash /sdcard/mtd2new.img (copy new partition image)

And that's all :)
