hi,
look at this guide http://bit.ly/1J5NN3c, it will flash your device back to S147 after that you can do OTA update from your device, or try just flash only recovery.img (it mean only recovery that checked) but it not recommended since i don't know what firmware version installed on your device.

than just use link that i give you, and update your device to S147 first than do OTA update to S175 the latest version firmware, format your device means erase the OS from your device and installing the new one. because of that using flash tool may brick your device mean device with non OS and need to be flash again with flash tool.
