Sorry to hear Root Towel does not work. It means if there will be an official update it might refuse to install or even if installs then no more root solution.

Rooting helped me to install Titanium, Xposed Installer (Gravitybox) and Viper4droid FX. Last one improves the sound output clearly. But yes ext. speakers are loud but Mono.

I use Nova Launcher, too.

Don't forget to try Qualcomm's BatteryGuru app for Snapdragon SoC.

Thanks for the answer. It's about time to have to get the root, so I must just wait a couple of months and Vroot friends or Towelroot they will succeed.

As data, yesterday I installed it on my computer the "Mobile Upgrade Q" software, version 4.6.5 from Alcatel page and it detected my phone without problems. After 2 and a half hours to get the "upgrade" from their servers (from China I guess), my phone was formatted and received exactly the same version as before: Android 4.3, Build JLS36C. I must admit that I breathed after that, and I could have left with a piece of brick. Relief.

It's good to know I'm not the only one with this phone. I will light a candle for the Root out soon. A hug and thanks again.

Hi everyone,

Please note an update is available from the phone (in France) (I have not tested with the PC software) but this is not an update to kitkat (4.3 still). She made me lose root and I can not put it back with towelroot. I have not seen any big changes, only a few details. I advise you not to do it ... unless you want to help me find a solution to reset the root!
So it is impossible to put the cpu setting with ... autonomy is not as good.

Vroot and Towelroot only works with the previous kernel version to 3 June. In my case, my phone already came with the updated kernel, so now you're like me, stuck for a while.

Having root again is only a matter of time so we just have to wait.

According to GSMArena, this phone will receive Kitkat, so hopefully our Chinese friends TCL (Alcatel) do not forget this model and check out the new version.

What did you try to update with, since there's no official update ?
And I have a backup of the 4.3 rom, you can restore the system partition with it

Managed to update with alcatels PC tool. (Took 8 freaking hours to download)
On update - I'm using the 6050a which currently has kk. I managed to capture the ota from the tool and I'm gonna try releasing a zip for 6050y (AFAIK the hardware is the same, so should work fine if build.prop is edited accordingly. )

How much time do you think it will take to make the zip ?
