I have placed the phone in recovery mode (power+vol up), and connected this to my PC (Windows 7). The PC does not recognise the phone and flags up an "unknown device" (code 43), so I cannot do anything with the flash tool or MTK tools.
I'm assuming that the original ROM is still intact, but can anyone confirm: is this phone recoverable? I should point out that it appears not to be possible to get a copy of the stock ROM for this device, I have searched at length with no success.
If it's dead without the ROM, a single line to the effect will put my mind at rest at least
