                			  I thank you for the time you have used to compile the information. i have on little problem, my phone is Alcatel ot918 mix, though wen i did a nandroid back-up the files read "OT_918D_MT6573" which means it uses the OS for OT-918D. In your downloadable ROM files i can not see the OT-918D 2.3.6 which is the appropriate version for my phone. Thanx in advance.

It installed, but stuck at booting, at the android logo.Then i tried to restore, using first the partial backup that i did, then with "Smart Phone Flash tool".I did a format : "Auto Format Nand Flash" "Format all flash".It`s connects to the phone and it formatted.  But when i try to Download something (F9) it`s only giving error and says : "SP Flash tool error (9100)  [Android USB] Can not find USB Port.  For formatting it can find.I tried removing the battery and tring after, but it`s not working.The phone can not even power on. I tried even using one touch upgrade tool, But still says my phone has the latest ROM.Once i connect it to a PC I can here the PC detect is by the USB connect sound but doesnt show its charging. Someone help on how to recover the original ROM or even how to get my phone working
