The threads I have been reading have all come from this area.
I have a BLU Studio HD 651u that is rooted.
Somewhere along the way of rooting and tweaking and what not, I managed to make a terrible mess of things with my phone.
I have a backup copy of the Stock rom for my device, and what I would like to do is install a custom recovery, then completely wipe my phone. COMPLETELY! (if that's possible), then, flash the stock rom back onto it.
I am hoping that flashing the stock rom doesn't 'unroot' my phone. I would like to keep that. It was quite an ordeal getting it rooted to begin with, and I believe the cause of some of the problems I am having.
The Stock rom files I have are not a zip file, so I would need guidance on that procedure as well.
I found links to the stock rom from the g+ pages for my device. There were 2 links. The one contains rom files for all the BLU devices, but the second link provided I'm not sure I even need.
If someone would care to take a look, here's what I'm talking about. My device has MT6585
And the recovery tutorial I found here
I am pretty much a complete noob. I only have experience with one Android device, a Kindle Fire 1st gen. that I was able to root, but not without seeking help from the fine folks at this website.
I am hoping to strike luck again???...
I don't know if I should try installing the stock rom and then try to install a recovery or should I attempt to install the recovery first and then install the rom?
And at which point should I attempt to erase EVERYTHING on the phone?
I did look for a section on XDA for my device, but, there isn't one I could find, and like I said, the recovery tutorial was found in this sexction so I am hoping not to offend..
Any help/input/comments or suggestions is greatly appreciated.
