Your best bet is probably just flashing a stock TPT.

Yes, it was TPT that i should use not FTM.
So, can i keep recovery to use TPT ?
And what rom should i choose ?

Flashing a TPT doesn't require a custom recovery. The process itself should erase your recovery partition and replace it with the stock Android recovery.

I'm honestly not sure which stock TPT you should flash. You should try to find your carrier's stock ROM and flash that, but it's not the end of the world if you don't.

Ok thank you for your reply.
Maybe someone else will know better the difference between roms and will know what one is better to use.

TPT is for stock rom i think because it request to have Update option in About in Settings.
My curent custom doesn't have it.

You dont need to update anything on a stock rom from settings^^
Dont install something with this option with your stock rom.

You can flash a Stock Rom with recovery or you can restore a backup from CWM. Only use tpt if nothing else works. It is dangerous


But before you flash/restore Stock try the GPS Patch.
