*.IMG normally is a custom recovery image, not a ROM. ROMs almost always end in *.zip and you boot into recovery to flash them.

That's something Chinese, a fake Nokia E72 with Android. Which means I don't think you're going to be able to do much with it. What happens if you run the Windows .EXE you've got with the phone connected to your PC?
