I apologize up front if this is posted in the wrong section.
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
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2668712

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.

Thanks!

This link --> https://mega.co.nz/#F!TplRURRI!LyAuAlNIBND_AOgu3bx6tQ is a public folder for BLU stock roms, just go to the folder STUDIO SERIES -> Right click in this folder -> STUDIO 6HD D651U and select: Download as ZIP

In this folder -> https://mega.co.nz/#F!W9AUGAQR!a6xLckX4_CqABLKUrh8iYA, download both files and follow this guide to install the driver and flash the rom,

I recommend to hard reset the phone before or after flash a ROM, even if you dont hard reset you will not have root

After flash the stock rom you can root and install custom recovery

The only way to format the phone it's when you can't install stock roms and SP Flash Tool keep showing errors, so format the phone and try again, it should solve (in some cases) some SPFT errors
