Hi. I want to discuss about rooting this phone. I rooted my phone using kingoapp.com. the root is easy and the apk is good with supersu installed after update. One big problem though, never ever install xposed installer apk because phone will never wake up past the start up screen. I install greenify donation, install this apk to get the greenify donation going, reboot the phone. Alas, huge mistake. Cant even go into android reboot mode using power+volume up button. My solution is using alcatel upgrade tool to reset the phone. This happened to me twice to find out the culprit..

After the update, firmware number is still the same and i can tell you honestly, nothing change before and after. 100% the same..
mazmaz, 22 Jan 2014could you give me a link to the IDOL X original firmware which I will use with mobile upgrade ... moreAs I know, the Mobile Upgrade tool by Alcatel will do a clean install of the latest firmware available only if your device is of older firmware. I would recommend it if you are having the camera problem like the others have. But if you are already on the latest firmware I don't think you can do the reinstall firmware thing using the tool. (Anyone please point me out if i'm wrong, also Can anyone who have used the Mobile Upgrade Tool by Alcatel tell me that are the apps i.e Gameloft games, AVG, Shazam, ...still remain/included or not? Thanks ).
