    And if you can make the backups of the partitions. I need both 7040N and 7040T.
    The sooner i get the files the sooner I can fix the ROM. :thinking::thinking::thinking::thinking:

    Could you please help me? :( I don't speak english very well. I have an Alcatel Fierce 2 T- Mobile (7040T). I got a system update notification today, so I tried to install it but it failed during the progress. Now, my cell phone doesn't boot from the Alcatel logo, it automatically goes to the Recovery mode, so I think is bricked and I don't know why it happened. So, that recovery image that you uploaded will help me to fix the problem and boot my phone normally? I have been searching for solutions to fix this, but nothing works. o_O There no even an official firmware for this phone. It is a shame. I will appreciate your answer. And sorry for my english :thinking:

    If you flashed this recovery before you boot looped your phone we have a rom to flash.

    Otherwise I do not have a way to recover from the bootloop

    I have the 7040N will this work or can you point me to one that will please?

    I rooted using kingroot and flashed the nrecovery but when I try to boot into recovery it just get stuck on the boot screen.
    Any help would be great.

    Should I take the factory update ? Will that bring me to 7040T?

    If you use the files for the 7040N everything should be fine.
    Try to re flash the recovery with Flashify.
    Make sure you are flashing the recovery and not the kernel.

    It sounds like the recovery did not flash right. Flashify will boot into the recovery automatically after the flash.

    Yeah I've tried it 3 times using flashify and 2 using rashr wit no luck. My power button is messed up so I can't even try to boot into recovery from power off.
    Any other ideas?
    Thanks for the reply.

    Hi again. How can I install Flashify? This is APK APP, so I can't install it on the phone because it is bricked. And another question, what do I do with the recovery image that you just uploaded? Should I put it on the SD CARD to install in on the phone or what? Sorry for bother you, but I don't know what to do. I have had my cell phone bricked for 6 months. I want to use it again. And do I have to use ADB interface to flash? I would like you to give more explanations, please. I will appreciate your help.

    It is the stcock recovery.
    But I have modified it to change the signature verification key.
    That is how the rom files I made in the other thread can pass signature verification.

    The rom that is flash able is 100% stock except that it is rooted.

    Do not install any OTA with this recovery installed.
    Do not install any OTA with the phone rooted.

    It will brick you.

    The recovery I made gives me a way to flash the phone with the android recovery.
    That's all. It looks the same and functions the same.
    But it will allow you to sideload files as long as the files you sideload are signed with my keys.

  16. So the purpose of this is to side load files signed with your keys well what files aside from your rom would that be? I'm just looking for a way to get custom recovery on this. I found that this can be accomplished on some phones via terminal emulator I wonder if that method would work on this phone its my only phone so I can't risk it

    The concept is.......
    After you have flashed the recovery that I made.

    A) I can give you the releasekey.x509.pem and releasekey.pk8, then with thoose keys you can sign any files you want. After you sign your zip with the keys it will allow you to flash that zip.

    B) You send me your files, I sign them and send them back. Then you flash them.


    When the boot loader is locked:
    During the boot up of the phone, the boot loader checks the KERNEL Signature.
    Change the KERNEL in the recovery ---->>> ( CUSTOM RECOVERY)

    The signature check fails ----->>>> The boot-loader will not allow the device to boot.
    Then you have no ADB Acess to fix the thing.

    Maybe not exactly like that but pretty close anyway

  18. My apologies I finally thoroughly went through the entire thread and fully understand what your efforts have accomplished and I thank you. Too much phone jargon got me confused a bit lol as I'm only accostumed on flashing and roming I have no developer skills. I only follow instructions and flash. Would this then allow me to flash a custom recovery Or is there still no hope for that? Its honestly the only thing worth flashing or that's needed

    If you can get root access in adb then you can flash this.
    Or if you can run flashify.
    Otherwise there is no way to flash the recovery.
  20. This phone has been rooted for some time now I can run flashify but for me I dont need this recovery I need cwm or twrp. Thanks though

    You cant run cwm or twrp with a locked bootloader.
    Essentially my recovery will allow you to flash the phone.
    If you mess up your phone and my recovery isn't installed we cant fix it.

    I would suggest installing the recovery.
  22. Not too long ago I flashed twrp on lg l70 with locked bootloader using terminal emulator and some command I found online makes me wonder if it's possible on this phone but I can't risk trying it myself

    yes the command is

    dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/by-name/recovery.img

    similar to that anyway.
    You have to adjust the if= path to be the recovery image path you want to flash.
    And adjust the 0f=path to be the path of the recovery partition on the phone.

    Make sure you read all of my post in
    work back from there.

    All the info you need is there.

    The problem with any other recovery would be that the Boot-Loader most likly checks to see if the kernel has the right signature. If it can't verify the kernel signature it wont boot it.

    On top of that the twrp has to be built for the specific device. Or you need to find a very similar device.

    Flashing a bad recovery won't boot loop the phone.
    The recovery just won't load.

    Simply flash back the original recovery and everything is ok.
