to compile kernel sources take a look at this post

I can't believe that One Touch Upgrade is not working for your phone
Yes, it just says that Mobile is up to grade and stop the software ...

well, find a recovery backup or request help from Alcatel tell them your phone is working but you have some software problems and you think an update/ reflash should solve it so ask them how to get update because One Touch Upgrade says that phone is up-to-date
they will answer you : I used this service in the past

I found THE solution of our problem man !!!!!
I found it !

I assume you have already Flash Tools and One Touch Upgrade 1.8.2

Step 1 : Download the file '2.3.5_Europe.zip' (file attachement)
Step 2 : Open Flash Tool
- Option --> Check USB MODE
- Option --> Backup Restore NVRAM --> Check Backup --> .....
- Scater-loading File --> "MT6573_Android_scatter.txt" (in 2.3.5_Europe)
- Click DOWNLOAD
Step 3 : Wait up to the end.

When it's finished, open One Touch Upgrade and do an Upgrade

It works very well now !!

Bye !

Phone @ marcorennes

Thanks very much marcorennes,
It worked for me though it is showing me that the phone has two SIMs instead of one.
How can I go about that?
My Alcatel is OT-918 (without D/M/N).
What you gave me is for OT-918 D.
Give me way forward...but thanks

Yes, I have an Alcatel OT 918 (without M/D/N) too and I have the same thing (2 sims and 918d).

I think we have now kernel sources for the OT 918d and we can now install custom ROM for 918d in our OT 918.

I'm not sure but I will try (If it's fail, I will do the same thing to restore it).

I think it's better to have the firmware of the 918d instead of ... nothing

Hi !

I don't understand you're problem ... The files I shared work in you're phone no ?

I've put the zip files in my original OT-918 (with the manipulation described above) and I used the Alcatel One Touch Upgrade Update software.

Phone @marcorennes

It looks like you never understood me..
What I meant is..
Did you ever backup the original 3 files you posted before your flashed your phone with the ones for OT-918D?
I followed your instructions and I have a working phone though showing two SIMs.
I have a friend that is planning to acquire OT-918(without D/M/N) just like the ones we have.
I wanted so that I can use his images to restore back to my original system..
Thanks man

Ok ! I understand ! ^^

No, I have never backed up the originals three files ... I tried to install a custom ROM but I did it without thinking (it was a custom ROM of a 918 D) ...

The only way I found to have a working phone is to put in my phone the three files I posted (original files for a 918d)... And I don't know how it works but it works !

But when you're friend will have his phone, can you send these files for me please ?

Thanks !

Kenavo
