here is the cwm recovery backup,,

if u r stuck in colors screen (i.e. bootloop), flash cwm recovery and restore this backup

 

just extract it in sd card and restore from cwm recovery,, (yeah u must have cwm recovery 1st)

 

note: backup your rom before restoring. best of luck http://www.4shared.com/archive/0e-69AQ4/clockworkmod.html

 

for getting cwm recovery turn off ur phone and press volume up + power key until u get cwm recovery

 

update: only restore system and boot

colors x factor cwm recovery and another root method

 

method 1

if u r rooted

1) paste recovery.img in the memory card (not inside any folders of memory card,, just into memory card)

2) install the apk (mobileuncle tool), open, give root permission, go "flash reecovery from sd card", u can see recovery.img, just click on that; and flashh recovery are u sure, click ok

 

method 2

if u r not rooted

1) download and extract xfactor root.zip

2) download and copy recovery.img to extracted folder (i.e. xfactor root)

3) remove battery of ur phone; do not switch on!

4) install mtk drivers

5) open sptool as administrator

6)load scatter file

7)(make sure that only recovery option is checked;if u tick others-u can brick ur phone)

8) in option menu, disable download DA All

9) click download, click yes and plug the usb cable (do not switch on yet, just plug in)

10) when download ok box appeared disconnect ur phone; remove battery, insert battery and boot into recovery (vol up +power)

 

how to root with cwm?

important: if u want to root with cwm then download su-busybox-installer.zip and copy to memory card before flashing cwm recovery!!! now flash cwm recovery from method 2 and boot into cwm recovery, in cwm recovery choose clear cache, then choose install zip from sd card, and select su-busybox-installer.zip and select yes,, u r rooted (power botton to select and vol botton to up down)
