No recovery images available for Alcatel Idol 4 Pro


Alcatel another popular Windows Phone OEM after HP. Alcatel just launched Idol 4 Pro in Europe. So far it received overall positive feedback from customers. While Microsoft confirmed that they will support Windows 10 Mobile until mid-late 2018 But…?

There is no factory recovery images available for the Alcatel Idol 4 Pro. That means once you install Insider Preview build there is no way to get back to production ring. So we would like to suggest that do not play with software by enrolling device into Windows Insider program.

Microsoft’s Windows Device Recovery tool is also unable to detect Alcatel Idol 4 Pro since no image available for it. Though Alcatel Idol 4S is supported by Windows Device Recovery Tool. Of course you can’t install Idol 4S’s recovery image on Idol 4 Pro, this could mess the entire software.

Furthermore, Senior Program Manager Brandon LeBlanc at Microsoft on the Windows Insider Program, give an assurance that he will ask his team members and come up with a solution. The Alcatel Idol 4 Pro is one of the best Windows Phone in terms of hardware and performance of the device is very satisfactory. So during the demise of Windows 10 Mobile are you looking forward to buy a new Windows 10 Mobile? Let us know in a comment below.
