No.....not do you have a backup, but since you have to be rooted to install beats audio i think.....do you still have the stock recovery installed, or have you installed CWM? let me know...if you have cwm installed, i think i might be able to help you.......just let me know....

ok........on your recovery screen is there a picture of a little android guy...or is it just a list of options. What i am trying to figure out is if you have clockwork mod installed bc if you do, and can make you an update zip to recover this.... and is this a boost phone? If you need to install cwm there is a post in this forum on how to install it......for the force zte....

CWM-based touch recovery

unzip and take recovery.img and put it on the root of your sdcard

adb shell

open a terminal
type : adb shell
hit enter
type: dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery
hit enter
when prompt returns type: reboot recovery
hit enter

terminal emulator

open terminal
type: su
hit enter
allow root to terminal
type: dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery
hit enter
when prompt returns type: reboot recovery
hit enter

a factory reset won't take your root away..... im creating the update.zip right now, that will reinstall the stock system files....including root....but you would need to install cwm first........maybe you can hop over to the touch reovery page, and ask someone in there on help on that?

Terminal commands wont work in ADB. Such as using "SU" in ADB is not needed.
Only on Terminal Emulator on your phone will it work. Download Terminal Emulator from Market/Google Play.
