I just got this phone today. Its a good little phone for the price but Id like to try some other stock 4.4 kernels if possible.

I have rooted the phone and I can get into fastboot mode but fastboot.exe just hangs at waiting for device.

I think this is a driver issue as in device manager in windows I have "Android" listed with no driver. I have downloaded fastboot and adb drivers but this has not worked.

Is there another driver I need for this to work with a Vodafone Smart 4 Turbo?

Thanks.

Question: how can i readd the clock & weather widget? I removed it from the homescreen and can't see it in the widget list. Only reset to factory?

Depends on your phone-revision.

If it's 890N, it's more or less not possible.

Tried every root app
ive tried every root option i know to root this phone 890n 4.4.4 and nothing works,cant even get it to connect to adb as it goes into fastboot mode only if you remove battery and plug usb in but it only says fastbootmode and no other options and when its like that adb cany see device, it does when phone switched on gives serial number. im stuck. Anyone had any luck yet or still no joy?

when you said you got into fastboot mode, did it just say fastboot mode or did it give you options? mine just says fastboot mode which is no good as it doesnt give options to start fastboot its because vodafone or coolpad have messed about with it that much its useless. ive just had a reply off coolpad americas as i sent email there didnt know uk address but they said there waiting for a reply from uk counterparts and then theyll sent me source code and other tools for phone.(we'll see if they do).

i thought bootloader was locked on these phones or is it because some have 4.4.4 firmware it cant be rooted as a lot with 4.4.2 firmware have confirmed root?
