linksys, 12 Oct 2012I updated via OTA to 2.3.6 -010 06 1 or something. Then over ONETOUCH upgrade who has found a ... moreSame thing happened to me yesterday, but I think that One Touch Upgrade didn't downgrade the phone, just renamed the current version back to 2.3.6 without removing the FOTA update you made.
How do I know? because when I bought this phone with 2.3.6, whenever I plug in or out the earphones, the screen wouldn't turn on (it wasn't a feature in this ver.), I updated via FOTA to 2.3.6 010 06 and this feature was there. Then, I thought I'd check for ICS via OTU, I let it download and waited for the process to finish, when I powered on the phone it was still on GB and worse back to 2.3.6 :(
Then I plugged in earphones and what do you know, screen turns on! Meaning that it's still on the same FOTA ver.
Steffeson, 14 Oct 2012Hi, Been testing everything multiplytimes now in The ICS 4.0.4 on my OT-995 and so far ther... moredid you update to ics from official alcatel source via One Touch Update or FOTA, or did you use another build?
Been testing everything multiplytimes now in The ICS 4.0.4 on my OT-995 and so far there are just two "faults" i've detected..
1. When the phone is in standby mode and you click the powerbutton to light up the screen and the "startup screen" comes up it tells you there is NO SERVICE witch is quite funny becouse when i unlock the screen and the i've got full service from networkprovider and everything is working?! (Just a minor cosmetic problem to me anyway)
2. When the phone has been in standbymode for a while it has now two times shut itself off, and i've been forced to startup the phone again.. I'll get back to this problem if it continues and if so i'll try to fix it..
That's all the faults/errors so far running ICS 4.0.4 that i now of.. :)
Alcatel One Touch 995 Ultra with ICS 4.0.4 - ROOTED + CWM
Last post before bedtime, i've now checked the system and everything in ICS 4.0.4 seems to work perfectly fine on my OT-995!!
I've also ROOTED my OT-995 again succesfully with ICS 4.0.4 installed without any problems..
Alcatel One Touch 995 Ultra with ICS 4.0.4 - ROOTED + CWM
The moment of truth was a PERFECT ICS 4.0.4 installation on my Alcatel OT-995 Ultra and everything seems to work just fine and incredibly smooth..
The French ICS 4.0.4 version wasn't a complete multilanguage version but it atleast contained English and that's fine for me anyway..
Gonna keep you updated on how ICS 4.0.4 runs after i've checked the whole system out, but it looks perfectly good now i can tell you at a first glims of it.. :D
See ya later!!
Just executed the ICS 4.0.4 installation on my OT-995, looks fine so far, almost done now and soon time for the reeboot and moment of truth!! ;))
I've just flashed CWM to my OT-995 so that in a coold startup holding UP VOLUME BUTTON + POWERBUTTON at the same time the OT-995 boots into CWM (ClockWorkMod)..
I then did a backup of my 2.3.6 Android system and i'm now gonna do a restore from the French OT-995 ICS-version and see how that works out..
For info the French ICS-version is multilanguage so for me who is Swedish it should not be a problem..
Let you now later how it worked out for me.. :)

I've cleaned out the system from stock apps and the builtin antivirus + 3D launcher etc and gained more free RAM becouse of that.. :)
The phone is so good for the money that i enjoy using the OT-995 more than my Galaxy S2 becouse of that.. :D
A very good phone, really recommend it!!
