I have an Alcatel Pixi3 4.5 4G model 5017O and I'm working on development for this phone.

I did a hexdump on the stock boot.img and was quite surprised to see this:

Does anyone else have an Alcatel, or any MediaTek based phone with a stock boot.img, that they can check to see if all of the phones they release are like this?

You can run a hexdump and check for yourself in Linux and let me know, or post your phone specs (MediaTek based only) here as well as a link to download your stock unmodified boot.img.

To do the hexdump cd into the dir with your stock boot.img and run the following command (in Linux):

hexdump -C "boot image name" | tee boot_dump.txt

where "boot image name" is the name of your boot image (without the quotes) that you made during a readback in SP Flash tools when you did your backup of you stock rom. The hexdump will be saved to a file named boot_dump.txt.

(You may have to run "sudo apt-get install hexdump" (without the quotes) in Ubuntu if you don't already have hexdump installed.)

If this is in the wrong section, please let me know.
