    Thank you for your nice tips & tricks!
    I already installed CWM and would like to replace it by TWRP but it does not work. Every time it reboots under recovery, CMW remains the recovery mode used.
    I even tried to reinstall the original recovery with Mobileuncle, without succes :(.
    Would you have an idea how to replace CWM by TWRP then?
    Thanks again!

    Thanks for your reply
    My recommend change long name of recovery to recovery.img only
    And will be working !

After I'm restart my phone, my device don't have any Recovery Mode, It's restart when I press Power + Volume Down after logo Alcatel to appear, When I don't press, My phone can boot to OS normally. After that, I replace Original Recovery and My devide return to the to initial
    I hope you have new CWM file for my phone! Thanks a lot!

    Hi there,
    Do you wanna try again CWM I attached new link working CWM for your Dual sim version :)

    I don't know because I haven't device.You can try there is nothing dangerous for your phone and tell me if it works.

    Thanks a lot, your new file working for my device 6030d dual sim. I success installed it

    i used the 6030d method. with the CWM recovery.

    Hello is any way to install TWRP recovery via stock recovery or ADB or mtk droid tools in one touch 6030x ? I changed some lines in build.prop and after reboot it stopped on orange logo. phone is rooted. I have copy of build.prop in the same folder on phone. ONE TOUCH UPGRADE telling me there is no grater software for my alcatel. I need to install TWRP because i cant run aroma file manager in stock recovery. sorry for English.

    Thank you for reply.
    I have problem with connecting phone and using mtk droid tool to create scatter file. When I connecting turned off phone (MTK droid tools working) i hear windows "connected" sound and after 3-4 seconds it unplugging itself and phone displays fully charged battery. I haven't that problem when i using ONE TOUCH UPGRADE S it looks like One touch upgrade program preventing to self disconnecting of the phone. Sorry for my english.

    Ok. I installed your TWRP and new ROM from someone's TWRP backup. The problem was with error 10 code ("This device cannot start.") in Device Manager. I just downloaded the "MT6577_Android_scatter_emmc_PMT" scatter file from one of tutorials in internet. When choose TWRP and check only RECOVERY in Flash Tool, I plugged phone to USB and heard "plugged device sound" I quickly click "Download" and "Yes" it started flashing recovery. Past 2 seconds it disconnected itself (as it used to do) so I plug out and plug in again phone and Flash Tool finished flashing (green circle "Download OK"). It works. Sorry for english.

    I have an Orange San Remo (Alcatel OT 6030x) and I installed on it one TWRP with Mobileuncle but when I restart into recovery (ON|OFF Button + Volume UP) there is no more recovery now (neither the original nor TWRP). What should I do? Thanks!

    It worked! I followed your advice and changed the name of the original file into recovery.img.

    Can I update TWRP or CWM to latest version ??--KALRA INDIA [using 6030a]

    can you give me original stock recovery ?

    Give me your original stock recovery

    Actually, I'm not sure if this phone has any recovery at all... I mean, when you hold VOL UP + PWR, it tells you that all data will be erased, blah blah blah in 5 different languages. There's a green check mark and a red X below. You'll have to long-press the green if you want proceed and the X if you want to quit. If you press the check mark, it will just restore factory settings. That's it.

    sorry for the double-posting.... not intentional. :)

    of course have a recovey.Please follow my guide for backing up your ROM and give me I will made for you CWM recovery or TWRP

    I'll try. but FYI, I'm on stock rom (4.1.2 build JZO54K).

    Hi, I have an Orange alcatel one touch star 6010x and I can't install any CWM or TWRP recovery (it freeze when I push ON|OFF Button + Volume UP)!

    Is your phone rooted ? if is rooted install mobile uncle tools and flash recovery.

    Yes, but I did that too...

    Thank you so much for help me !
    Else, what can I do ?
    It freeze also when I try to install the original recovery !

    So, I can't install any recovery ?

    Look rename long name of recovery to recovery.img only.

    Hi !
    I did what you say but it doesn't work... :(

    It doesn't work with the original, the TWRP or the CWM recovery with just recovery.img for the name.

    Hi Ivan,
    This is not good, but If you want I will give you backup of ROM for 6030X.
    As you know Alcatel has MediaTek CPU and not usual partition custpack like on most Androids this is one of bad problem for porting or developing custom ROM.
    I hope soon we to have CyanogenMod!!!

    Hey.. Why you think that this is not good? And yes if you can sand me your backup.. Tnx allot!... Your backup is fully stock or? One more time TNX for all man!
