Default [Q] How to root Alcatel OT 918 (Android 2.3.6)

Hello, I have this phone Alcatel OT 918 (without N or D) with android 2.3.6, i don't find nothing in the forums for the root method, I try superoneclick 2.3.3, unlockroot23 and the OT 918D method, and nothing. I can't root it. Somebody can help me? Thank you.

There is someone who already did root the latest Alcatel 918 with the Android v2.3.6. But sadly he won't share it to anybody. I'm still finding the way to root it via adb. And that's what he did by using adb stuffs.

Default 2.3.6 and Rooted...



just want to share, i successfully rooted my OT-918N from SunCellular PH with Android 2.3.6 using the following scatter.txt and recovery.img file.

the procedure i followed was this tutorial by bluerain28 [TUT]Alcatel StockRom for 918D/M/N.

another thing is i set the flashtool to USB Mode instead of scanning to com ports... hope you get the same results as i did.

thanks bluerain28 for the great tutorial..

I will try to do it, i never do it before, so it will take a little time, because i have to see how to make a copy of the rom to send it.
