Recommended Posts

you need to flash stock update.zip from ZTE Device, then after that you can install the new update.

I did manually. Removed any remaining stuff from system. Hopefully nothing else left.

it removed it for me, i installed the king root to sd card and it came off when i ran super.

Yes very strange indeed! I'm reluctant to mess with my phone again without doing a backup as it is a pain to go stock and OTA and king root and supersume etc ha ha.

Haha, I know the feeling. 

I've just made a backup in recovery to make things a little easier on myself. 

Let the cockups begin.

Edit: Worked, Kingroot gone 4ever. But needed to format phone (on definitions, but i did a backup on Google.)

Thank you Lukas4477.

Glad it worked :) 

I did a fresh install before I installed king root to the SD, then after I was fully rooted and had removed kingroot, i made a backup in twrp recovery.

I did a twrp backup before the format.. But when i try to restore it on recovery mode, it says "... read mode only" and cant restore it.

Reboot recovery it should give am option to allow editing file system. If not go to mounts and mount system.

As it is now the stock OTAs fail to install because (at least the first of) these asserts fail... it'd be handy to have a little tweak to resolve that. Keep up the good work!

getprop("ro.product.device") == "msm8916_32" || abort("This package is for \"msm8916_32\" devices; this is a \"" + getprop("ro.product.device") + "\".");
getprop("ro.product.name") == "P839V55" || abort("This package is for \"P839V55\" product; this is a \"" + getprop("ro.product.name") + "\".");

Stock firmware packages also contain bootloader/modem images that you shouldn't be flashing in custom recovery. Good guideline is not to use custom recovery to flash any partitions that you can't backup/restore.

Im having a issue with this.. I just back to stock ROM of Portugal ( 002c vesion, Vodafone Portugal stopped the update via ota i dont know why ) when i had the 002c before ota, recovery worked fine, no errors..
But now when i do all the steps from OP and i reboot to recovery it stays stuck at powered by Android, i can only acess recovery with stock recovery..





Edit: Fixed :P

Download both files to PC, then right click on both -> send to ultra 6, then open the terminal emulator and write the 2 lines from OP and it's ok.

Just recived the phone from Vodafone Spain and I want to get a recovey.img backup from the VDF-995NB01-ES02c Rom that is the one installed right now. I have downloaded the ROm from ZTE site, but the stock recovery.img is not included, just a path.

I belive that having the UK stock recovery.img would be enought to flash back the Stock Rom, but I was wandering if is possible have a backup of the recovery.img in the same way we just flash TWRP once the phone is rooted. I think it would be something like.

dd if=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/recovery of=/sdcard/recoveryimg

or similar 

dd if=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/recovery.img of=/sdcard/recoveryimg

or maybe a recovery.img is hidden somewhere.

I think is not a big deal having one or other stock recovery, but as I have seen, there is not a "complete" recovery.img in update.zip and the path in the folder /recovery/bin/install-recovery.sh seems to be different in update.zip (from SP or UK), so maybe if you have stock UK recovery and you install the spanish update.zip, the path for the recovery will faild, That is not a big deal but just you always will have the UK recovery.

Regards.

Have you downloaded the PT stock firmware from ZTE support site? You can create recovery.img from boot.img and couple of patch files. I could do it but I can't be bother to download the whole firmware (ZTE site is so slow).

Extract these files from the PT update.zip and upload them somewhere.

boot.img
recovery/recovery-from-boot.p
recovery/bin/install-recovery.sh
system/etc/recovery-resource.dat

The files from the Spanish stock firmware if you want create the recovery, in case is not possible have it in other way.

Here you go.

You could also dump the recovery partition ('dd if=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/recovery of=/sdcard/recovery.img') but I much rather prefer creating it from the patch file as that is possible. This way you'll have a sha1 checksum to verify that the recovery image is exactly what it should be.
