Default [Guide] Root & CWM for the Alcatel One touch X'Pop 5035D.



Introduction
Quote:
When creating this thread i never expected that this topic would be this huge, let alone become a community place for fellow phone users to help each other and even create new improvements to our phone. Now as of 20 oktober i decided to make a rehaul of the guide and i hope it will make it even easier to understand and follow for newcomers.

I want to remind people that i am not responsible for any damage that might be caused using these methods, so use this at your own risk! ! Also know that by rooting your device your warranty is void. Since i am not the one who created this method, i want to give my special thanks to Mihalyh2 from the 4pda.ru forum. All i do is created a simple guide to root the phone and share this to fellow users.

Getting started

Quote:
Welcome, in this guide i will be explaining to you how step by step you will free your phone. You won't be blocked by the limitations of android and are able to change anything you want. Be careful though since it could possible make your phone unusable. Within a few steps you will be able to install a custom recovery and root your device. Don't know what root or custom recovery's are ? then check the links below

Currently there are 3 custom recovery's available (CWM/TWRP/COT), the installation of the recovery's are all the same.
  1. Download and extract the above files (MTK droid Root & Tools & SP FlashTool)
  2. Choose your preffered custom recovery
  3. Put this folder in the MtkDroidTools\backups.
  4. Start the Flash tool
  5. Press the button at the right called "Scatter-Loading"
  6. Go to that folder and look for the file called "MT6577_Android_scatter_emmc" And press open.
  7. You will be returned to the Flash program, you might wanna extend the size of the application so you can see all the files that are loaded.(like Preloader/DSP_BL/MBR up till ANDROID)
  8. Now uncheck all those boxes, so dont forget the ANDROID one.
  9. Check Recovery and click on recovery, it should open another windows where you have to choose your recovery. Now pick the recovery you have chosen to use..
  10. Once you done that, go do download and press yes on the upcoming error. Shut your phone off and connect your phone with USB to the phone. Now it should turn red to yellow and should copy the recovery to the phone. At the end you should see a green ring. (you might need to put out the battery and back in again to let it be recongized)
  11. Press power and the volume button (+) to get in to the custom recovery.
Once succeeded use the volume buttons to navigate to the option reboot and press the power button. This should restart your phone and eventually you will be returned to Android

Default Installing CWM

Rooting your phone

Quote:
Before we start to root your device, we need to make sure you are downloading the correct files. In order to do this you need to know what version of android you running. To do this is by starting your phone and follow the following steps.

1. Start your phone
2, Go to settings
3. Look for the option: About phone (should be the last option below)
4. Look for the firmware and check what version you have. You either have 4.0.x (also called ICS) or 4.1.1 (Jellybean)

Once you done that you are ready to start the guide. Below you will fine the necessary files.
Rooting Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0.x)

Required Sofware

Installation Part One (ICS)
Quote:
  1. Install The Alcatel one touch manager and upgrade (preferable on the default path)
  2. Extract the ROOT ICS Android 4.0.x.rar to C:\ONE TOUCH Upgrade S 2.8.0
  3. Start your phone and make sure you enabled debugging via USB.
  4. Turn off the phone
  5. Restart your phone in to factory mode. You can do this by pressing the Volume button (-) and the power button at the same time.
  6. If done correctly, the phone should start and show a black screen with on top the word Factory mode. If not then restart your phone or pull out the battery.
  7. Connect your phone by using the USB cable, wait until Windows stopped searching for a driver (in my case it did not install the driver)
  8. Go to the ROOT ICS Android 4.0.x Folder, in my case it was at the following location: C:\ONE TOUCH Upgrade S 2.8.0\ROOT ICS Android 4.0.x
  9. Press shift and right click within the map, there should be a option called: Open Command Window Here. Click on it.
  10. It should now have opened the Command Window with the following line: C:\ONE TOUCH Upgrade S 2.8.0\ROOT ICS Android 4.0.x> Leave this as it is.
  11. Now go back to the folder ROOT ICS Android 4.0.x, and start the application called Install Root. This should start a command inside the Command Window, don't be afraid of the Russian words. Now it should restart your phone 3 times without any error.
  12. See the following Screenshot: http://imgur.com/Wcs1HHP
  13. Download Root checker from the Play Store, once installed you start the application and press Verify Root access. If done correctly you should see the following message. Congratulations! This device has root access
Installation Part Two (ICS)

Quote:
  1. Extract the files and install SP Flashtool and the MTKdroid application (prefferable on the same path)
  2. Download the Entire folder from the mega link (MTK Backup)
  3. Put this folder in the MtkDroidTools\backups.
  4. Replace the default boot.img with the patched one. (make a backup of the old boot.img), rename the patched one to Boot.img.
  5. Start the Flash tool
  6. Press the button at the right called "Scatter-Loading"
  7. Go to that folder and look for the file called "MT6577_Android_scatter_emmc" And press open.
  8. You will be returned to the Flash program, you might wanna extend the size of the application so you can see all the files that are loaded.(like Preloader/DSP_BL/MBR up till ANDROID)
  9. Now uncheck all those boxes, so dont forget the ANDROID one.
  10. Check BOOTIMG and click on BOOTIMG, it should open another windows where you have to choose your boot.img. Now choose the new boot.img that you put in the backup folder..
  11. Once you done that, go do download and press yes on the upcoming error. Shut your phone off and connect your phone with USB to the phone. Now it should turn red to yellow and should copy the recovery to the phone. At the end you should see a green ring. (you might need to put out the battery and back in again to let it be recongized)
  12. Restart your phone (might need to pull out of the battery to start it) and keep your phone connected to your pc.
  13. Now we are going to check if the installation worked by doing the following things, Go to your MtkDroidTools folder and open the "adb" folder. Inside the folder, press the following combination (Shift + Right click), it should bring up the following option "Open command window here". Press this option.
  14. You should now have started a command window in which you are able to type commands (in this case for ADB). Now the only thing you want to do is type the following command "adb devices" and press enter. You should see the following answer: http://imgur.com/NsTiCVv (There should be a device attached now)
  15. Second way of knowing if the installation has is by doing following this guide: Right-click "My Computer" on your PC, click "Manage", click "Device Manager". If the ADB driver is installed properly, and if you enabled "Debugging Mode", it will be listed under "ADB interface" or "Android USB Device". http://imgur.com/pdQR3gG
Rooting Jellybean (4.1.1)

Quote:
If your phone is running Jellybean it's alot easier to root it. Don't ask me why but the installation is a lot simpler then with ICS. You even have the luxery to choose out of 3 methods. So this is what you have to do.
Required Sofware

Installation (JB)

Method #1
Quote:
  1. If using this method you need to have CWM installed before attempting this.
  2. Next thing you do is downloading this
  3. Put the file on your SD card
  4. Restart your phone in CWM (By pressing the power button and the volume button (+) at the same time.
  5. Install the file by [Install zip from SD card] --> [Choose zip from sdcard]
  6. Restart your phone and install root checker from the Google Play market to see if your device is rooted
Method #2
Quote:
  1. Shut down the phone.
  2. Download the Patched Boot Image Jellybean 4.1.x and extract it, make sure you rename the extracted file to boot.img
  3. Start the SP flash tool and like before you have to press Scatter-loading and load the same scatter file as before.
  4. Uncheck every box and press the boot.img, locate the extracted boot.img you just renamed and select it.
  5. The bootimg box should be checked now. Press download.
  6. Press yes on the upcoming error. Shut your phone off and connect your phone with USB to the phone. Now it should turn red to yellow and should copy the boot.img to the phone. At the end you should see a green ring. (you might need to put out the battery and back in again to let it be recongized)
  7. Restart your phone and install root checker from the Google Play market to see if your device is rooted
Method #3
Quote:
Some people suggested to use this method, i didnt try it yet so its your own risk. But it seems safe. Check the following thread about the installation.

How to remove Root & CWM
Quote:
Step 1. Shut down the phone.
Step 2. Start the One touch upgrade S tool.
Step 3. Choose your device and just follow the applications instructions.
Step 4. The download and install time will take around 20/30 minutes. If for some reason the application crashes (mostly this will happen at the 100 % mark) .. then disable your firewall and anti-virus and maybe try a different USB port.

To see if it worked:

1. Download root checker once again and it should tell you the device is not rooted.
2. Shut down the phone and press the power and the volume button (+) at the same time. It should show you something else then CWM (it should be yellow and telling you the following message: "Android System recovery <3e>

I am not sure, the root method is based for ICS. But it might work. Can I ask what country you from and how you got jelly bean?
