I want to create a back-to-stock zip that I can flash in CWM recovery that makes my phone 100% stock again. I haven't done this before.

The phone is a ZTE T81 which is an Australian version of the ZTE Avid, so there are no back-to-stock images on the internet. It's Android 4.04, 100% stock not rooted. At the moment there is nothing on the phone worth keeping (no SMS, photos, contacts etc), I have only got through the initial setup, haven't even added a SIM or my Google account.

From what I have read I think I need to create a boot, system and recovery images. I tried "adb pull /" but it only did half a job so I guess I need to root and create the images with dd. In the mounts below there is a system partition but no obvious boot or recovery partitions. So...

1) What would the boot and recovery partitions be under?
2) Do I need to image any other partitions?
3) Once I create the 3 images, how do I make the CWM back-to-stock zip?
