Thanks for your help

HI .....KUBO...please PM me....i have big problem with my ot idol!...i need your solution!

Mr Kubo, I have a big petition for you. My close friend have Alcatel OT Star. I recommended that phone for him. But he is very disappointed from 3x4 T9 keyboard less. I found that nice keyboard from Xperia, and it's working on S Advance, so I think it should be easy to port this to Alcatel and it will solve my and my friend problems. Can you do something with that? May be you can try install with custom recovery? I try with factory stock recovery but appear "installation aborted". I will be very grateful. Links below:

Is there any living soul around here ??

Hello !
First of all thank you for all the informations, this website is really complete and accessible.
My request :
I recently bought a TCL S820 (equivalent OT 6030D).
Flash it and put a custom ROM, this ROM is for 6030A, works perfectly fine yet I lost the dual sim fonction and it requires a ME sim code.

I would be so thankfull if you can give me an original ROM for 6030D, whatever version except a chinese one !

Thank you in advance.

Hello, I have a problem with my device(OT IDOL 6030x). Its completely bricked, It gets stuck on onetochIDOL logo and thats it. I tried backing it up and restoring with SPFlashtool but It didn't work for me. After the last step (that yellow bar fills up) I turned on my phone and I was stuck again....P.S. allready tried hard reset and that does not seem to work either.

same problem but use twrp backup (if you are able to boot in twrp recovery) ---Kalra

Hello dear Alcatel Star Blogger

I love your blog and learned some couple of new things from you.
Please continue with your work!

I have a special request.

My Smartphone doesn't boot anymore and I can only access TWRP recovery.
Unfortunately I deleted my backup and my Notebook broke last week (with a copy on it).

Is there a possibilty that you can help me out?
I only need a empty Alcatel backup?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards

I recently had a problem with my 6010x device ... I accidentely erase the /custpack files :-(
I saw your videos and I think you can help me. Can you send me the /custpack folder or better, a full backup of 6010x system
Thank you,
I love your blog and your videos :-)

hi Sir, do you know where i can get a stock rom for 6033x. i had massive trouble and need to flash a stock rom. i am searching since 2 days, but cant find anything. can u help please? mobile upgrade wont work. the 6033x is the only phone that is not listed in the tool. FOUND A ROM for one touch idol, i think it should work with all idol models (6030x/d/a) because it has dual sim menagment on my 6030x. PLEASE NOTICE this rom is still in early beta

Hi, great blog! Have used several of the tips and twaeks successfully on my newly acquired OT Star 6010. I have a few of questions that I have not found the answer to yet:

- Is there any way to get rid of the Google search bar at the top of the screen, in order to use the space to widgets and shortcuts instead?

- Is there a way to expand the desktop to say seven screens instead of the standard five?

- Is it possible to rename shortcuts on the desktop? Change certain shortcut icons?

Thanks in advance
