Here it is, one of the most up-to-date recoveries available for the Z990 series devices.

Built using the CM9 source tree with a direct clone of TeamWin's recovery tree. All functions listed below work:
- USB mount
- Touch interface
- adb access
- Backup/restore
- Reboot commands

I made it publicly available for all to use! Come and get it!

EDIT: This should flash nearly any ROM. If it does not, it's easy to correct. Most of the time it's the update-binary, which you can borrow from a GAPPs package.

I've flashed AOSP and CM7 with this.
