Hello everyone, I don't know if I am posting in the right section, if not, please help me in finding the right one.

Can anyone please direct me where I can download the factory ROM for Lenovo model A269i. MtkDT accidentally got deleted with backup of the ROM. Now the phone is stuck on the Lenovo logo when I was trying to root the phone. Sorry for my bad English.

Edit:
I have booted successfully the phone and installed carliv's recovery but the recovery doesn't open system, data and cache partitions.

Carliv touch recovery
I have been able to port Carliv touch recovery to Lenovo A269i, but can't test it as my phone was soft bricked. recovery can't mount /system. From all the researches I have made, I need factory rom for the phone to be able to recreate the partitions and to test the recovery.
All credits goes to Carliv for this successful porting of recovery to the device. I can't post in http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1825722 as I have fewer than 10 posts.

first you'll have to get factory rom for the phone from http://www.needrom.com/mobile/lenovo-a269i/ then flash with sp flash tool to recover your phone. when you revived your phone, i'll try to upload the recovery for you to flash.

sorry for late reply, I was very busy.
First of all, you WILL HAVE TO BACKUP your rom with the latest MTKdroid tools (v2.5.3 can backup the phone)
Secondly use framaroot to root your phone.
then use carliv recovery to create a custom recovery.

Again, Do NOT FORGET TO CREATE A BACKUP OF YOUR WORKING FACTORY ROM OR YOU WILL REGRET IT WHEN SOMETHING GOES WRONG. If mtkdroid tools takes very little time, it may mean that it hasn't backed up your rom.

Well, use google to find the tools mentioned above.
