This morning I was playing on my phone (Alcatel One Touch Idol 6030x) and It freezed. It turned off and then it said that everything is lost, I have to factory reset. I did it through the CWM recovery, but nothing happens. Then I tried to do it with Alcatel One Touch Upgrade. I was doing as it said to me. I reached Step 3/4 and then It showed an error.
TCL Corporation, parent company of Alcatel, announced a few days ago that they were preparing a successor to their Idol X device tentatively named the Idol X+. Based on the MediaTek logo spotted in some images that leaked online, the device is expected to come with MediaTek’s latest high-end octa-core processer.
Right on the heels of its last leak comes new images of the Idol X+ from TCL (Alcatel). In the image above, you can see clearly there is dual SIM support due to the “SIM 2″ slot. According to GSM Insider, the Idol X+ has “a front-facing camera together with light sensor to trace the brightness.
