Hi everybody!

On our 4pda.ru forum we are struggling with this phone in two ways- rootin it and unlocking in order to update manually to 2.0 and even 2.2; and other way- working android (already have beta rom which is exact copy of rom from another alcatel 6014x which runs android and similar to our Fire E 6015x).

if there are any enthusiasts about android, i can translate the guide for you and share the needed files and programs. Almost everything works except sim-card(when there is no one- phone asks to insert it, when there is one- phone says its not registered) but we are working on it

i came over a https://www.soeren-hentzschel.at/moz...firefox-hello/ that states that in Germany some people already received 2.0 update on their Fire E. Here arises my question- are here people who own updated Fire E? I mean update to 2.0.

If there are ones, would you be so kind to make a copy of your rom for our little development? I can provide you with guides and software on how to do it.

I can post guides for making this an android phone.

Hi my dear russian brother - greetings from Germany.
I do have an updated 6015x device to FFOS2.0 and I could dump the rom for U. Just gimme links to the needed info. My russian is not one of my strength, but I think I can manage it - I'm a bulgarian after all.

Look, please, do you have in System settings parameters of russian language on your FFOS 2.0.

HOWTO ROOT ALCATEL OT 6015X:

1. Download CWM recovery image made for 6014x.

2. Download Install-SuperSU.
download.chainfire.eu/696/SuperSU/UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.46.zip
3. Turn your phone to bootloader mode anyway.
4. Run modrecovery:
Code:
fastboot boot my_recovery.img
5. In CWM menu follow "install zip" -> "install zip from sideload"
6. On pc:
Code:
adb sideload UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.46.zip
7. reboot phone

I am sure lowlevel utilities from android's SuperSU are working fine on any FFOS (because FFOS based on Android now).

Alcatel's stock ROM for the Fire E has been published at sourceforge.net in the Alcatel project.

I wonder how do you use it though, can you build it on its own? The B2G by Mozilla still hasn't got an option for this device.

I tried your recovery image but it doesn't seem to work. There is no error but after booting the image, the device isn't visible in fastboot or adb. For that reason, I'm unable to sideload the Su zip update.

Flashing the recovery image works though, then sideloading the SU image works from clock work mode recovery.

Ok, here's some news. I built a boot image that enables adb as root. All you need is to flash it on the boot partition and reboot the phone. I made a few changes to the boot image.

default.prop
Code:
ro.secure = 0
ro.debuggable = 1
To flash:
Code:
fastboot flash boot boot3.img


and replaced /sbin/adbd by an adbd built with "ALLOW_ADBD_ROOT". (I used the sources fetched using b2g repo).
