chedsabahmalaysia, 31 Mar 2014Hi Omer. I have the same issue you are facing now. Did the upgrade for several times but still... moreThanx. So initially, like me, you got offered 01001, even though 01001 was already on your phone? Doesn't make sense to me. Either they made the application such that it always downloads & installs the version that is on their server, regardless of whether or not it's the same version as on the phone, OR: not every '01001' is the same. Is that possible? I get the idea that might very well be the case: There's little things after the upgrade that made me go like: 'Hey, that looked a bit different before'. But I'm not sure 100%. Is it possible that not all '01001' are the same?

Did the upgrade for several times but still with the same 01001 firmware. Only in January the firmware upgrade did happen and i am on 01002 firmware now. Meaning that your place still dont have the newer firmware. But doing the upgrade, It never stuck anywhere and the phone boot up normally..
Omer, 30 Mar 2014Question: How many of you have successfully used the Alcatel Mobile Upgrade software? I tried ... moreI haven't tried the upgrade software but I did try the other software (sync and backup etc). It also gave me an error at step 3 but didn't mess up the phone.
Fantastic phone for the price but a single core sgx544 vs full hd screen is gonna be a joke
Question: How many of you have successfully used the Alcatel Mobile Upgrade software? I tried yesterday for the first time (to see if an upgrade was available), but got an error in step 3 of the process. Phone wouldn't boot anymore (it kept showing the One Touch Idol X boot logo on and off). I managed to fix my phone by first flashing a Russian rom I found on the internet with Flash Tool, to get a working phone again, and then re-running the Alcatel Mobile Upgrade software. This time, it was successful. However, the firmware is still 01001 :-)

Is it a typing error or you owned a low end alcatel phone. ?This thread is for Alcatel One Touch Idol X 13 mp camera owners. Thank you..
Had one till yesterday when the screen unfortunately cracked. Not the first, not the last in the world of mobile phones.
Phone is OK for the common user and in my opinion the greatest fail is the camera. Absolutely terrible! Didn't expect such from a 5mp device.
Today went to service and asked for the price of repair. Surprise! More than 100€ (500PLN) to make it worth again and availability of parts is scarce moreover.
Maybe in France, where this mobile comes from, 100 something € is reasonable for a touch screen which by the way comes together with the electronic module... It's not sold separately or as cheap as for instance Nokia Lumia's.
So all round the money for value is OK but if something goes wrong such as cracked screen or water/humidity ingress you better have some replacement around or prepare your wallet.
After this I'm done with Alcatel's. Will be looking for a more popular mobile phone company with more friendly cost for spare parts and repairs.
