device(you can try in other device,may work). Here is
my step by step tutorial...

Requirements:

* PC
* CWM/TWRP Backup
* Winrar
* Brain


you need META-INF,system & boot.img for making a
flashble zip rom, so you have to collect these from
your backup


*CWM method:

1. Copy the CWM backup from Phone to PC

2. Extract system.ext4.tar file with winrar, you
will get the system folder

3. Collect the boot.img from the backup

4. Now collect a META-INF folder from any custom
rom which is made for your device

5. Now select META-INF,system & boot.img, click
right button of your mouse and select 'Add to archive'
now select archive format 'ZIP' and press ok

6. Your flasable zip rom is ready. Just copy it
to your sd card and flash with CWM or TWRP

7. Done.



TWRP method:

1. Copy the TWRP backup from Phone to PC

2. Collect the file 'system.ext4.win' rename it
to 'system.ext4.tar'

3. Extract the system.ext4.tar. Now in case if your
TWRP backup is not in compression method, you will
directly get the system folder. Or if your TWRP
backup is in compression method, you will get a
file named 'system.ext4', don't worry just again
rename it to 'system.ext4.tar' and extract to get
the 'system' folder

4. Collect the 'boot.emmc.win' file and rename it
to boot.img, now ypu manage the boot.img also

5. Now collect a META-INF folder from any custom
rom which is made for your device

6. Now select META-INF,system & boot.img, click
right button of your mouse and select 'Add to archive'
now select archive format 'ZIP' and press ok

7. Your flasable zip rom is ready. Just copy it
to your sd card and flash with CWM or TWRP

8. Done.

You can't do that! First flash the stock recovery, restore the backuo, then flash the CWM once again.

I could swear that was covered in the first post. Problem is that if you don't have custom recovery, you'll have to create a signed zip that works with the stock recovery...but I can't help with that.

Yes, you have to find a flashable custom ROM for your device and then you replace the custom elements with the stock ones. Just follow the instructions exactly as they have given you.
