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).

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)
1. download ZTE USB drivers
2. download and install Android SDK tools and platform-tools to get adb and fastboot
3. download recovery-cwm60xx-atlas40.img recovery image
4. create a new directory somewhere and copy adb.exe, fastboot.exe and recovery-cwm60xx-atlas40.img into it
5. plug in your device via USB cable and install drivers (make sure you've enabled USB debugging on your device)
6. 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

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

How to install ClockWorkMod Recovery (windows):
1. download ZTE USB drivers
2. download and install Android SDK tools and platform-tools to get adb and fastboot
3. download recovery-cwm60xx-atlas40.img recovery image
4. create a new directory somewhere and copy adb.exe, fastboot.exe and recovery-cwm60xx-atlas40.img into it
5. plug in your device via USB cable and install drivers (make sure you've enabled USB debugging on your device)
6. change into the directory you've created and execute following commands in terminal window

adb reboot bootloader
fastboot flash recovery recovery-cwm60xx-atlas40.img
fastboot reboot

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

How to root your device via recovery:
1. download root app of your choice (ChainsDD's Superuser, Koush's Superuser, Chainfire's SuperSU) and save it to your sdcard
2. follow instructions on how to install/boot ClockWorkMod recovery
3. install zip from sdcard -> choose zip from sdcard -> root-app-of-your-choice.zip

If you have already gained root access with some other root method, you can flash recovery using Terminal Emulator:
1. copy recovery-cwm60xx-atlas40.img to the root of your phone's sdcard
2. execute following commands in terminal emulator

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

How to restore stock recovery:
1. Follow instructions in ZTE Blade III stock ROMs thread

Sources for the recovery are available in my github. You can compile it yourself using CM11 source tree.

This is my build of Koush's ClockWorkMod Recovery 6.0.2.7 for ZTE Blade III. This should also work on other ZTE devices with board name atlas40 (e.g. ZTE Acqua, V889D, etc).

2. boot into recovery instead of flashing it
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot boot recovery-cwm6027-atlas40.img
3. select backup & restore -> backup

How to root your device via recovery:

2. follow instructions on how to install clockworkmod recovery
3. boot into clockworkmod
4. install zip from sdcard -> choose zip from sdcard -> Superuser-3.2-arm-signed.zip

Hey! I've tried the method when you run adb and fastboot via windows in cmd. BUT, everytime it reboots as it should. Then I type the flash recovery thing with the right file name... And in cmd it just says "waiting for device".
I waited for over an hour and it still said "waiting for device"... What am I doin wrong??
Can anyone help me? :o

if you "boot" cwm instead of flashing it first, I think stock recovery is included in the backup. so yeah.

Thanks a lot mate! I appreciate it a lot!

PS. For everyone out there... I had problems on my Windows 7 64bit Laptop, so I just did the complete tutorial on my PC which is Windows 7 32bit and everything worked just fine!

Dont know if that makes any differences but it worked!

Even though ClockWorkMod makes a backup of the recovery partition, it doesn't restore it. Usually that would mean that it would overwrite itself and that of course can't happen.

If you want to go back to the stock FTM recovery you need to flash it with fastboot just like you flashed the ClockWorkMod. If you followed the instructions under 'How to make clean ROM dump/backup of your device (before you root or install cwm)' you'll find your stock recovery image (as recovery.img) inside your first backup's folder.

start with the phone ON and inside android, with usb debugging on...

then run adb reboot bootloader, the phone will now reboot and stay at green android screen.

NOW try fastboot flash recovery
