Default Return to Stock for CWM (updated 4/11)

This is as close to a pure stock image as I can get

These ROMs are flashed with CWM

They will

format /system /data /cache

extract the stock system files to /system

create the proper symlinks that are suppose to be on a stock ROM

set permissions

flash the stock kernel

flash the stock recovery (replaces CWM recovery)

THIS DOES NOT FLASH BASEBAND OR BOOTLOADERS


latest version
ZW-RTS-FOR-CWM-19-0B08C.zip
ZW-RTS-FOR-CWM-19-0B08C.zip

ZW-RTS-FOR-CWM-16-0B08.zip
ZW-RTS-FOR-CWM-16-0B08.zip


ZW-RTS-FOR-CWM-14-0B07.zip
ZW-RTS-FOR-CWM-14-0B07.zip


ZW-RTS-FOR-CWM-12-0B06.zip
ZW-RTS-FOR-CWM-12-0B06.zip








original file I made from one of the Nandroids I found on this site
zte_warp_RTS_vb_for_CWM.zip

Thumbs up

I apologize for my bad English and stupid questions at first.

Should be good having a similar version of this rom, exactly the same thing but rooted and with latest cmw, I'd like to have both, using this one to bring my phone to the store and the rooted version for everything else needing return to stock.

Thank you very much for your support, We don't have a lot of devs for ours Warps.

I may make that ROM

What I am trying to do is provide a bunch of tools to encourage more people to do dev work on this phone

the more people we have the better

hroark, any chance you can update this with woodstock's nandroid backup of b08c? I want to point people here to go back to stock, but it's a firmware version back and b08c solved a lot of issues... if it's a ton of work/time I don't want to take you away from cm7 though

Thanks also for coming to warp, it's a HUGE bonus to have you around and you have already put us leaps and bounds ahead of where we were!

Happy coding!

I don't mean to be rude but bump because

1. I really want this to remain B08b
2. Could you update the title?

Although yeah, something for B08c would be nice.

well before i do anything, i would like some feedback from people, letting me know if this worked for them or not


I have tested it and it seemed fine to me, but the real test is always when other people start using it

Eel by "update the title" I meant update the thread's title, nowhere does it indicate what stock firmware you're reverting to.

And yes, it worked for me marvelously already. Sorry for not mentioning that earlier.

I would say that the best way to return to stock is to use FTM mode and the Online Upgrade utility

But if you have CWM then you do not have FTM Mode, and you have to flash stock recovery back


So the RTS in the OP is good to return you to stock recovery and system image


What I would like to do is create some thing that is practical

For instance, if we get CyanogenMod Working

Well CyanogenMOD does not support hidden menu stuff, updating PRLs and activation of the phone

So any one who will be running CyanogenMOD would be smart to keep a stock image on their sdcard that they can flash in CWM if they need to do any of those things

We will not want it to overwrite the CWM recovery with stock recovery


So I should make a zip that flashes you to Stock B08c but leaves the recovery partition alone

Wow, and here I thought the ROM only went back as far as B08... Dunno whether seeing all these changes are encouraging or not.

I really do not think we need those older ones, but they may help someone like a developer who is looking for older files

I am actually going to try to use some of the B06 files with CyanogenMod, since I am having issues with the new files


Just because a ROM has a later version number, does not always mean it is better, a lot of times it is just security fixes to try and prevent people from getting root and stuff like that

Yeah, I was thinking maybe if somebody smart compared the different roms, then maybe they could find the parts that were broken in the process of "updating" and repair them...in my simple mind, anyway.

Yo Knoxville363, I noticed in your videos that you boot into CWM recovery from your computer. There is a much simpler way to do it. Simply just power off your phone, then turn it back on holding the power button and volume+ key at the same time and that also gets you into CWM recovery. Pretty much the way you are doing it you are reinstalling CWM every time which your not really doing anything wrong but its easier and faster the way I explained.

Hroark you are the MAN! You saved my phone's life. I wasn't getting calls or texts.. The screen wouldn't wake. I was trying to get shin's mod to work on my phone but had no success. I will start from scratch from here, but I mostly just needed to be able to accept phone calls.

Thanks again for your hard work.

hroark are you able to properly sign your stock rom's? I'm trying to implement it into my bat file. Here's what Im doing. I'm taking your b08c rom and pushing it to the sd card. After that, I push a little file called command to /cache/recovery. The next time the phone boots into cwm it automatically installes the zip file. There's only 1 line in it "--update_package=/sdcard/stock_b08c_rom.zip"

However, when the phone reboot's it verify's the package. Unless I can find a way to disable verification thru that file, it failed to open the stock b08c rom because it didn't pass signature verification. I can't ask the user to disable this because it's supposed to be automated.

Basically what im saying is is that your rom's not signed properly and I don't have an environment for that atm.

edit: do you not have one for b08b? o.O

I am not sure how to sign them, I am creating this zips with the standard Ubunto Archive manager, not with anything Android related


I do not have a zip for b08b, I was not able to find that

im gonna try the one on Free Your Android - How to Sign APKs/ROM ZIPs where it says sign with private keys since it uses eclipse which sounds like its a bit more promising than the (failed) autosign.bat app lol

it looks like your method uses signapk too but ill try this one first

edit: the one I linked to was a fail ill try yours now

So, as many people have, I've foolishly rooted my zte warp (for boost mobile) without backing it up and applied a bad rom. Before the rom was installed it reset itself and took me to the boot screen where it entered a bootloop. For the last 8 hours I have tried everything, every recovery anyone (mainly woodstock) has recommended, to no avail. I've formatted everything, factory reset it multiple times, done everything I could think of. Still, nothing works. It's becoming late and I'm getting desperate - I apologize for repeating a common question - if anybody has had a similar problem I'd love some suggestions. I have accepted the fact that I will lose my data, but that is no longer important to me. Right now, I just want my basic phone functions back. Thank you in advanced.

After rooting and trying out a few of the new roms, I wanted to see if I could get back to stock. I used hroark13's ZW-RTS-FOR-CWM-19-0B08C.zip. I noticed at bootup, the alien kernel logo still shows up so I'm not exactly stock yet. Does this have to do with the caveat, "THIS DOES NOT FLASH BASEBAND OR BOOTLOADERS" or have I just done something wrong? Is is possible to correct?

Nah, you're just not on the stock kernel. Dunno if there's a flash able of it... you can try updating the phone after restoring stock, it should wipe over everything after you get a very late B10 update

I did wait, as you earlier suggested, for the message about B10 being downloaded and ready for update. It came an hour or so after I flashed RTS....B08c to return to stock. So I updated to B10, but nope, still got the alien kernel logo before the stock green android shows up. So B10 update didn't overwrite as expected. So if this means I am not on the stock kernel, guess my next question is whether anybody knows if we got a stock kernel flashable lying around anywhere. Funny thing, since the messages from hroark13's stock rom said "flashing kernel". I was thinking that meant he had the stock kernel in his zip. Puzzling.

I'm kind of in the same boat as cmpyutr. I've returned to stock and let the B10 update happen. But the kernel still appears to be left over from my fooling around with ROMS. In my case, it's the one that boots up with a gray screen that simply says ANDROID in the middle.

This would not be a problem except that I can't boot to recovery to root the thing. FTM comes onto the screen and stays there permanently. (Regular boot is just fine.) Since everything else is stock, I have to think the kernel's the culprit. Ideas? Is there any way to flash CWM or TWRP to an uprooted Warp without booting into recovery?

Hmmm. From further research, it seems that power plus volume down is supposed to give me FTM, and that it's supposed to just sit there on the screen. So how do I get into stock recovery?

By the way, I put the phone through ZTE's update tool, which seemed to run through just fine, but I'm back at the same place. Including the non-stock kernel.

Duh. Power + volume up gives stock recovery. And it appears that the ZTE update tool gave me the stock kernel back after all.
