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.

Are the recoveries of all other stock TPT the same?

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:
https://dl.dropboxus...719844/mtd2.img

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 :)

What exactly did you flash? Only the splash screen or the stock recovery?
