Did you try restoring the phone via Alcatel's Mobile Upgrade program?

You may have to open the phone and check for loose or broken connections.

I found out what the problem with the TWRP flashable Kitkat image was. It is missing firmware files in /vendor/firmware, more specifically the keymaster files. So secure storage doesn't work, which secure settings needs.

I'm trying the change to 6050A and then the download via the super slow Windows software right now

The steps are:

1. Go to: http://www.decker.su/2014/11/cwm-rec...-ot-6050y.html
2. Download package 'cwm_alcatel_6050y.7z'
3. Extract all files
4. Install ABD drivers from file 'AdbDriverInstaller.exe'
5. Put your device in FastBoot mode (turn it off, than, hold Volume Down + Power button. After Alcatel One Touch Idol 2S logo appears, release buttons)
6. If you did everything correctly - Alcatel logo will stay on screen. Plug in phone via USB.
7. Run file 'check_device.cmd'. If Ok, you can see "9e0eb10 fastboot" caption at bottom of command
window (digits can be other). If you see this caption - follow next step, if don't - check adb drivers.
8. Run file 'flash_recovery.cmd' to flash cwm. All done. To boot into CWM turn off power, and hold Volume Up and press Power.
9. Now the SuperSU. Go to : http://forum.xda-developers.com/andr...t2902408/page2
10. Download file 'BETA-SuperSU-v2.42.zip' and copy to the phone
11. Flash ZIP with CWM

Detailed specs: http://www.gsmarena.com/alcatel_idol_2_s-6134.php

In short:

  • 5 in 720p IPS screen
  • Snapdragon 400 4 x 1.2 GHz / Adreno 305 GPU
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 8 GB Internal (5.5 GB available) + microSD (64 GB Lexar 600x UHS-1 microSD tested, working after FAT format by 6050Y)

  • 8 MP Camera with Flash and Full HD Video

  • 2150 mAh non-removable battery

Official support website http://www.alcatelonetouch.com/globa.../idol_2_s.html where you can download manual, quick user guide and two important apps.

Smart Suite for managing your mobile. (microUSB connection or Wi-Fi)

Smart Suite

Mobile Upgrade Q for checking offical upgrades.

Mobile Upgrade Q

Some downsides:
  • MHL not supported, only Miracast
  • OTG not supported
  • FM Radio works only mono
  • Non removable cover


SIM Unlock

Mine came SIM locked. So I searched some and found a YouTube video that unlock is easy with FuriousGold device. Same person has an online code generator. I have no connection to them but I tested and it worked. Also really cheap only $4.9

http://www.oneunlock.com/en/tools/so...a-unlock-codes

It all finished within seconds. I filled form. Operator code is written on product box, on top of IMEI code. After getting email I saw 4 codes and entering only first one was enough.

If you don't have a problem with SIM lock you don't need to do it naturally. But I detected it whenever installed a different operator's SIM card. There are only 5 trials and use them wisely.

Also if you want to play by the book, Orange Poland website asks you to go their office or call helpline for unlock and payment will be 77 PLN which makes nearly $25.

WARNING: When you unlock your device they have a right to say product warrany is invalid.


ROOTING

Again you don't need to root but I used to have programs like Titanium Backup, Xposed Framework, Viper4Android etc so I wanted to find a solution.

ATM the only method I know that works is Towel Root Only install it and click button. Matter of second and done. After that you might want to install SuperSU or Superuser app.

After rooting, there is a possibility that Alcatel official device updates won't be compatible. In that case unroot might be necessary. I haven't tried but SuperSU app has an Full Unroot option. Please let us know if you tried.


CUSTOM RECOVERY

ATM I could not find CWM or TWRP suitable for this device. Perhaps it is not necessary since there is no custom ROM / CM package. But I am sure custom recovery can be compiled.

UPDATE: Thanks to Decker.Kaluga, we have a compatible CWM recovery now. (I have not tried yet.)
