    Why does it say ‘adb’ is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file?

      You need to specify properly the path..

    I’m using the same phone, a rebranded version of cherry mobile cruize. I have successfully rooted my phone. But when trying to install cwm, i have accidently overwritten the /dev/block/mmcblk0p16 block. Can you please take a backup of your mmcblk0p16 block and upload it ? it’d be great help.
    The process would be,

    adb shell
    dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p16 of=/data/local/tmp/block16.img
    now the adb shell exit
    adb pull /data/local/tmp/block16.img ./

    now please upload the block16.img to the web.
