Alcatel 2038x generic firmware
 
Does anyone have links to 2038x (or n) unlocked firmware with polish language support?

Is there any software to edit bin files extracted from pac firmware? (except xxxxxxx china editor priced as phone itself ;) )

Do You get the firmware? I need it too.

There is no "Generic firmware" for Alcatel phones.

All models have specific PID, that shows for which region is device intended.

Also, 2038x model have several hardware revisions,
so flashing random flashes may lead to either dead device,
or device showing blank/white screen, or - lack of gsm/3g/lte service.

So ... if you need to reflash device, post phone's original PID,
and I will check if there is ROM file available.

Thats not entirely true
I've flashed every single rom for 2038 from xxxxxxxxxx and xxxxxxxxx sites (A M N and X versions) none of them have polish language support but also none of them bricked my phone - moreover only ones that were simlocked (company branded) rejected my polish orange virgin and t-mobile simcards

erm... how to obtain PID on this phone? is it CU REF?
2038N-3BALHK1 from sticker and box
2038X-3*ALE71 currently flashed into phone (yes it works ;) )

Brka 11-13-2019 01:19

Well, what I wrote is entirely true,
but you just had luck to have "basic" revision, otherwise it would not end that happy :D
(but with dead or no display - or no network phone)

Let's make it clear - It's not about PID (CU-REF), but hardware revisions,
X/D/N models etc CAN be cross-flashed.

However, PID : 2038X-3xALE71 is for Balkans, but don't have Polish lang.
(it have English, Deutsch, Slovenian, Croatian and Serbian.)

But ... There is Retail Poland rom , PID : 2038X-3xALPL1
(it have English, French, Russian, Deutsch and Poland lang.)

Download: 2038X_ALPL_V1.5_181130

Test and post results.

So I've checked everything once again and I must admit, you're right.
There are some black markings on black cover tapes XL3 3G FM-V1.0 and 2038N-W1/578-V1.0 maybe that's something related to hw revisions you mentioned

After flashing all firmwares that I have here are my conclusions:
All N versions work as expected (what a surprise ;))
All A versions - keyboard is not working or working very slow, no gsm connetion and battery indicator shows always 0% (but phone is not entirely dead - can be reflashed :D)
All X versions (including polish one that you provided) work perfectly but they have one main disadvantage - Only SIM1 slot works - SIM2 doesn't (no indicator, no second imei)

in the end... foreign dual sim or native single sim :( (or thrash bin :D because all of this flashing has overwriten both original imei)

Brka 11-13-2019 23:19

Nah ... No trashing yet. Check PM ...

Alex

ermaco2pl 11-14-2019 00:02

Idon't know why but I cannot reply to PM... anyway - I've already fixed imei and flashed 2038N_ALHK_V1.4_170906 after posting my conclusions - works like out of a box

I'ts a pity that I can't replace one language with another like it was in older phones (without stealing manufacturers hardrives with uncompiled file systems and all necesarry tools ;) )

Thanks for your time and effort Alex

Well, it's not that "Generic" and it's "ACC3" so it MAY cause
white screen/no network/dead phone, on older hardware revisions/different pids.

Posted firmware PID is : 2038X-3xVDDE1, No-Sim Lock.
Languages inside: English, Turkish, Deutsch, Netherlands.

p.s. There are also MR1 and MR2 (Vodafone Romania), beside "Regular/Old" HW versions.
All of this, as a small precaution, what you flash into phone.
Without old hardware phone in hands, to test, cant say for sure
if/what will work and what wont.

p.s.2 This was FRIENDLY info and precautions. Chinese OEM's
make waaay too many crap/different hardware from series to series.
(of visually identical devices/same models)

I downloaded the software 2038X ALPL V1.5 181130 and I think I was lucky.

No simlock and no white screen/brick phone after this operation. Thanks for help my Frends!
