    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.
