Maybe you may will just stuck on your stock recovery since there are rumours that MAJORITY (..yep) of these phones shipped are meant not to be flashed except ROW. You may be using a generic chinese smartphone that does has the same, better or worse specs under an A850 plastic housing.
That answered your question somehow. Now read my verily-long-short-enough-to-be-a-review feelings about why we face these problems.
Chinese smartphone manufacturers (and possibly other smartphone manufacturers too), are trying the best to prevent firmware change in any way possible, because they are defending their marketing asset, that is their modified ROM with ****loads of bloatwares, which.. "WOW I CAN SHARE ANY FILES WITHOUT BLUETOOTH, SO BLAZIN' FAST WIF THIS APP
"...for normal users, but..."I FRIKIN H8 DIZ BLOATWAREZ I WANNA REMOVE IT!!!"
...even for me and most power users (users that do more than just using the phone in the phone way). Well in reality standard users are the main asset for this companies, which you can see by yourself by just looking to an average schoolgirl that uses Galaxy S6 Active just for Instagram
, they are bound to stock ROM by manufacturer and they want to keep it that way in any impermeable walls possible, unlike Google.
Chinese manufacturers are too lazy to release the source code for the firmwares for every phones they release, because they don't wanna deal with a hoarde of SuperSU
geeks who want answers in "why I cannot apply root.fs in this firmware Axxx-20xx?", "Please make support for this Superuser version!"
, nope they're not gonna reply all that stuff because simply they really cannot ENGLISH
