I intended to install Root Call Blocker but it always told me that there is insufficient space.
I switched off and on again to recovery by Pressing the + Volume key and Power button.
This took me to recovery where I cleared,Cache,Dalvik Cache and Data.
When I rebooted it, it failed to start and just shows the Android logo and stops and it has never gone beyond there.
I have tried using the custom roms available at the link in @ alcatel918 dot weebly dot com/2-custom-recovery.html but the all install successfully but the phone fails to go beyond the logo.
That is why I am requesting anyone with such a phone running the same version to assist me with by may be backing up boot,recovery,data and cache and link up.
Thanks alot.

Smile SOLUTION

Install custom rom for specific device via recovery mode, power button + volume up.

Gingerblaze is specific rom for Alcatel 918 MIX (google this not sure if i'm allowed to post external links)

Use Alcatel's one touch upgrade software to download stock rom.

This method gets you out of recovery mode booting loops(i was stuck in this one), gets rid of unwanted roots (for when bring in device for servicing to ensure that your warranty is not voided). I was also rooted using blue rains' method for the Alcatel 918N, it works well with the MIX no issues btw.

Hope this helps!!!!

The problem is that the phone wont power up , it doesnt respond to the power button, but when i connect it to pc using usb , then Flash Tool sees the phone.
My brother has the same phone so i tried flashing everything from his phone to mine (DSP_Bl,Uboot,system....) but still no luck to power on the phone.

if i can get to recovery that would be great then i could flash the original stock rom

No power think maybe the power button got remapped or something, wish i could help you further but i don't know how to do any of that sort of stuff.
