Thumbs up How to root alcatel ot 990
Hi Friend,

I have rooted my Alcatel OT990 with Super One Click
The bigest problem for me was to find drivers


This is for those people who not have much experience about rooting n those who got tired of HSUSB drivers for Alcatel OT 990, here is simple solution.


Step 1: install PDANet to pc here is link http://junefabrics.com/android/

Step 2: While installing PDANet u ll get windows prompt...... click on Install Anyway

Step 3: During installation further u ll get a pop up saying..... Insure USB Debugging is On.... etc connect ur Phone n click on Yes (You must have turn on usb debugging in your phone for that go to settings > applications > development > Usb debugging)

Stup 4: Install SuperOneClick to your pc, Download SuperOneClick 1.9.5 (Later versions May NOT WORK!) Here is link http://www.4shared.com/zip/A-qwLIMw/..._22OT-990.html

Step 5: Go to the Downloaded SuperOneClick folder,there will be a folder called "ADB" open it. There you will find 2 adb.exe files,one for Win 7,and one for Win XP
Open your required file, it will show a command prompt window, Type "adb devices" and you should get something like 1234567890ABCDEF
If you get that,just close it.

Step 6: Now right click on Superoneclick icon and run as administrator.

Stup 7: Hit the Root button in superoneclick window and it will start rooting ur fone.

Step 8: while rooting it will ask u to.... Chek it by test Run.....press ok n ur phone is rooted ( To ensure u can c superuser app in your phones apps after rooting

I have rooted my Alcatel OT990 with Super One Click 2.2.0 without problems. Now is available version 2.3.1 but there is no reason that 2.3.1 doesnt work. So, no need for old 1.9.5.

There is a video on youtube, some greek guy hold alcatel ot-990 with android 2.3.4. If this is true, can someone from Greece rip off firmware and upload?

hi dear i m in greece too. It is true that OT 990 arrived with 2.2.2 but there was some 2.3 firmware release although exparimental. Second point, ya officials promissed for the support of ot 990 with gingerbread in last quarter of this year but sadly they still not launched properly. And there is buzzing aroud that may it will release in last days of desember or next year in january. KALOS KHARISTO YENA

Hi man, I suscribed just to Thank you but even logged in I can't find the Thanks button I'm I missing something? or I'm just too blind ?

Anyway, with your procedure I could root my Alcatel OT990 but with some issues, I'll comment should somebody find it usefull:

- When installing PDANet, the drivers install didn't work, it just did nothing and could not establish connection with the phone. It was because I had already the drivers but in a wrong state, I guess they were installed with the Alcatel OT990 software. I just removed these drivers, restarted the installation and it worked this time.

- The link for the SuperOneClick 1.9.5 you refer is not right, I found it here : www_dailyappnews_com/2011/06/151044/superoneclick-root-tool-updated-v195/

- In the ADB folder of the SuperOneClick there was only one adb.exe file and it doesn't work just by double clicking. So I opened a DOS console, moved to the ADB folder and run:

> adb start-server
> adb devices

If the phone is not listed then disconnect the usb cable and connect it again, it should work.

My 10 cents!
