    This is the stock Recovery for the (ZTE Force 4G LTE...ICS 4.0.4 SW Version N9100V1.0.0B09). For anybody that wants to return the phone to stock and unroot or just to play with. I'm sure nobody backed up there original recovery so here you go. Note this you play with at your own risk. The instructions are as follows, You must be rooted for you to make system changes. Extract from the zip file the file called "recovery" place it on your sdcard on phone and rename it recovery.img

    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

    Yes and for those who need to unroot there is a option in settings of SuperSU that helps you unroot. :)

    1st off,,,Thanks.
    And I to was wondering about that unroot option in SuperSU setting.That if it would unroot the phone.
    If someone has to return there phone should post how they got back to stock/method.

    Not sure about this but note in the stock recovery the last option says "wipe carrier/data/factory reset" if anybody wants to test it for us and see if it will wipe root from it or not.?...LOL who wants to guinea pig it for us. :rolleyes:

    Although I have not used this, I thank OP for making it handy.

    I was one who poked around a bit, rooted, changed kernels.. did a few other things, and found myself with a useless phone :D

    That was enough for me to try a rom, which solved my issues...

    Glad to know someone was kind enough to share!

    Wow approaching 500 hits, if I had a dollar for every view. Wonder how many downloads? we need a counter on the link. Thanks Redjama for stickying this, it probably wouldn't be so popular without the sticky. :) and thanks to the kind folks that are liking and thanking, Your all welcome!
