    Hey guys (I'm new to the forums ) I was wondering if I can get some help. Well first of all to get it out of the way, I have a rooted Alcatel OT 995 ICS phone . So the other day i was trying to follow some instructions to install a custom rom , to be exact the "H1N1 ROM" and it said to go into recovery mode with power+volume down.and then It goes to a black screen then it eventually shoes a black background+ a android on the ground with a red triangle+ Exclamation Mark. I also read i have to install a CWMR on my phone, I was wondering if anybody can help me install the CWMR thing and help me with my current problems. :D

    I've moved this into the root section for you

    Seeing if I can find cwm for you. Very little development for this device unfortunately

    It's a custom recovery. That red exclamation point sounds like the stock recovery maybe? I'm not familiar with your phone. But from the instructions I linked it sounds like you need fastboot drivers on your pc and boot the phone into fastboot mode. Then flash the recovery.img through fastboot. Basically about the same as my device.

    Not sure if there area prerequisites though. Like if you already need root or unlock bootloader??

    Sounds like if you have windows 7 you can install through windows

    Umm where can i download this fastboot driver for my pc? Okay So i downloaded this zip file called usb_driver.rar from xda. within it it contains i386 file,amd 64, source.properties, androidwinusba64.cat ,
    androidwinusb86.cat , and android_winusb.inf. what shall I do with these files? I'm completly lost ^^"

    Try downloading this software:
    http://www.alcatelonetouch.com/global-en/downloads/pcsuite/alcatel-androidmanager-2-2-1209-2565.exe

    That should install drivers for your phone. Unless you already have drivers for your phone?

    But then the recovery from the link I posted is all in one. So if you have drivers installed and are connected to the pc, you should be able to double click the runme.Bat included with the recovery and it should do all the work for you.

    Those recoveries say they are for your phone but I have never tested or used your device before so please be aware that I cannot guarantee anything. Just trying to help as much as I can



    Also sorry for the late reply. Been at a birthday party :)

    Hey brian :D thanks for posting that link. So I got the necessary drivers for my phone (Alcatel Android Manager) and the cwm_cocktail_stock zip file :D. Do I satart the "runme.bat" from the manager exe or just within the file? I've try running it from the file but It still says -Waiting for device- then nothing else happens :c

    You will run it just within the file. The software is completely separate and really nothing you even need. I just had you install it for the drivers ;)

    Did you follow the instructions from the link where you downloaded the recovery?

    Take note of the bold, the phone needs to be in fastboot mode before you run the flash.bat

    The flash.bat file is just running a fastboot command for you so you don't have to type it manually. So to run a fastboot command the phone needs to be in fastboot mode or you will see the <waiting for device> message :)

    Well even though I have it in "fastboot mode" or eather the alcatel loading thing and then i attach the usb and then I run the bat file and it loads the cmd screen then I press enter then it shows the -waiting for device-

    Awww man! I thought we were good to go :( I've never actually used cwm before or seen an issue like that. First thing I would try is copy everything on the sd card, format it and then try again.


    Edit: really sorry for replying so late. I've been really busy. Then on top of that I just noticed that I caught a glitch replying on Tapatalk. It posted my reply in a completely random thread from 2008. Just noticed and moved it here :rolleyes:

    Wait.... So now the recovery is working?
    Man, we can't catch a break here. :(
    I don't know your device at all. With htc there are different levels of root. S-off being fully capable with no security checks. S-on users have a harder time flashing Roms. I have no idea if there is something similar with this device.

    Try taking the boot.img from whatever rom you are trying to flash or restore, and put it on your pc in the same folder that fastboot is in. Then get the phone in fastboot mode again like when you flashed the recovery. Use this command:
    fastboot flash boot boot.img

    Then if you get no errors see if it will boot up

    Hey Brian Well I've tried that and I was close to finishing but then my battery died :/ , now I can't even charge it because everytime i plug into a wall the front led just blinks and sometimes it comes the boot screen then it dies again xd , I can't enter fastboot mode because It won't allow me xd, I think I have soft bricked my phone, Any ideas of how to fix it? If not then I'll try brining it to T-Mobile and asking them to get it repeared :x, I hope over here in Hungary they accept rooted phones xd.
