My papa has the Alcatel Pixi 8050G and the camera wasn't working at all.
We supposed that a factory reset would do the job, so I turned off his phone, and turned it on holding UP and POWER and it bring a menu with:

Recovery <--

I choosed Normal, and it turned on normally.
Did the same with Recovery and it brought a new menu... a Team Win Recovery Project menu.
So I wiped out the caché and other things and I "Swiped to reboot" and now the phone won't get past the Alcatel android screen.

Like... WTF?

Looking for info on Google, it seems that I completely deleted the OS. But I'm not sure which "OS" I deleted... if the Stock OS or a ROM OS... not even sure if that's correct.
Ok, so, now I'm downloading the Alcatel Pixi 8050G Rom and it weights 2GB, is that what I have to install now?

How do I proceed now on recovering the smartphone?... like leaving it as it was before.

Restore a previous backup? If you don't have a backup image try to find the stock image and refresh that. About half way down the following page is a list of prerequisites to hopefully get your stock rom back.

After doing this, you need to use TWRP to make a backup before you either root or install another custom rom. Another place to ask would probably be in the XDA forums.

    Fuck those things, six self.checkouts in parallel are slower than one manned register, and they have to have someone stand next to them to help people and validate age if you're buying beer, and unlock the machine when it gets into the MYSTERY OBJECT IN THE BAGGING AREA OH GOD HELP, HELP, CALL FOR HELP mode.

    Produce annoys me the most about using them
  • Veho @ Veho:
    We have a separate scale in the produce aisle, you do all the fiddly stuff there and get a barcode sticker that you scan on the self-checkout.
