THIS IS THE START THREAD FOR ANY XDA ENTHUSIAST!!​
keep in mind, that you do all these steps on your own and i am not responsible for any damaged or bricked phone.
So if you dont know what are you doing or are afraid of bricking your device, please dont do this!!!​

!BEFORE YOU START, PLEASE READ THIS!
And don´t forget to thank Famewolf for the tutorial, because this could save your phone when something go bad!

UNLOCK BOOTLOADER:

-Get/install Alcatel USB driver if Windows. (no need for Mac). FROM HERE, or just connect your idol3 to the computer and from the phone select "cd rom" drive..it will install the drivers automatically
-download the root zip from my GOOGLE DRIVE and unzip it.
-Set USB debugging on in Developer settings (if these are not exposed, go to Settings/About Phone/Build number, and tap 7 times.)
-Plug in USB cable to phone and computer. Tap on USB icon in notifications panel; select MTP (file transfer) mode.
-After that a window on your phone should appear and ask you to allows usb debbuging connection to your attached computer (please also check the box that say something like "always from this computer")
-Open command prompt in direcotry where you have the unzipped files (when using windows in the direcotry hold shift and press the right button on the mouse, it will pop-up a window where you have to select "open command promt here"
-type "adb reboot-bootloader" to reboot into bootloader. The device should reboot to the screen showing "alcatel onetouch...powered by android". This is bootloader mode.
-Then type "fastboot -i 0x1bbb devices" should show some numbers and "fastboot" after the numbers
-Type "fastboot -i 0x1bbb oem device-info" shows device info including bootloader status (e.g. locked).
-Type "fastboot -i 0x1bbb oem unlock" to unlock the bootloader; after this you should get, for device info,
-Type "fastboot -i 0x1bbb oem device-info" and you should see "Device unlocked: true"
-To reboot normally: "fastboot -i 0x1bbb reboot"

ROOT USING CUSTOM RECOVERY:

as we have now the custom recovery (TWRP)
-So download supersu.zip from HERE
-Put it on your SD card (or internal memory)
-Flash (or just boot) the custom recovery (you can see the procedure in the thread i linked above) and in recovery install the superSU.zip
-Reboot

ROOT:
-Plug in USB cable to phone and computer. Tap on USB icon in notifications panel; select MTP (file transfer) mode.
-Run the unziped "root.bat" file and select option 1.
-The device will reboot to bootloader,then boot the boot.img which will install the SU and then the device will twice reboot
-check if you have superSU installed, if yes, then You are done.


BACKUP under windows:
-so now you have root rights and you can what ever you want, but first do not forget to backup your device
-for that occasion i made a simple BACKUP_all.bat file
-download the file and place it to the directory, where you extracted the root.zip
-run the bat file it will create a backup folder on external sd card in the phone! extract the system partitions and in the end it copies it to the subdirectory "blocks" in the dir where you ran the bat file.
BE AWARE to share the modemst and persist files because they are device specific!!!
here is the code:
PHP:
@echo BACKUP IDOL3 6045 partitions by DallasCZ
adb shell mkdir /storage/sdcard1/mybckup

echo Press any key to begin
pause >nul

adb shell su -c "dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p1 of=/storage/sdcard1/mybckup/modem"
adb shell su -c "dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p2 of=/storage/sdcard1/mybckup/tunning"

adb shell su -c "dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p33  of=/storage/sdcard1/mybckup/keystore"
adb shell su -c "dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p34  of=/storage/sdcard1/mybckup/config"

@echo BACKUP copied partitions to hard  drive
@mkdir blocks

adb pull /storage/sdcard1/mybckup %CD%/blocks/

@echo BACKUP Done!
@echo Press any key to exit
@ECHO OFF
@pause >nul

FOR LINUX USERS:
for unlocking the bootloader see THIS POST by Fankee207
for backup on linux please see THIS POST by Frankee207
and dont forget to thank him. :good:

If someone send me a linux/mac guide i will post it to this post so we have all the info in one thread.

To unlock bootloader on linux, just make sure adb and fastboot are installed
Code:
 sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot
on ubuntu based linux for example. No need to install full SDK.

just add sudo before each command
Ex:
Code:
sudo fastboot -i 0x1bbb oem unlock

Should work, but I'have not tried myself since I have not received my idol yet
No need specific drivers. Before beginning, you can run
Code:
 adb devices
to make sure your device is correctly detected
Don't forget if problem with adb on linux, run
Code:
 sudo adb kill-server 
sudo adb start-server

Thnaks you for the backup script. May I share it on french android forum forum.frandroid.com ?

You can download the script here: https://mega.nz/#!QtEG3TSb!DJ8N1dVRUYNPOLk8kQj2ggZfx8o5M9whiag5WFfANtc
If you use the script for linux, don't forget to make it executable by running
Code:
 sudo chmod +x backup_all_AOTI3.sh

during the root process, does it really "flash" a boot.img?
from the batch file, it appears we are booting a boot.img, from which we [presumably] push supersu to the system. thanks.

Error: device not found :(
I think the drivers are not installed because when e conect in mtp or ptp it install the drivers again so i unistall the drivers and connect on cd again and install the drivers then i change to mtp and the pc install the drivers automatically if i change to ptp the same thing happens :(

You can download the script here: https://mega.nz/#!E9MnGSjR!XHreY39vw7YIxFqOncDZNcBfn5LSgdhYsbcO4DGlubM
If you use the script for linux, don't forget to make it executable by running
Code:
 sudo chmod +x backup_all_AOTI3.sh

%frankee207, there is at least one error in your backup script: you create a directory "mybackup" but then you try to write to a directory "mybckup". You will need to change one name or the other.

I will try a corrected version later today on my Mac (in general most stuff for linux should also work on Mac, though you don't need to run as root on the mac to run adb, so "sudo adb" can be replaced by "adb".)

    FOR LINUX USERS:
    for unlocking the bootloader see THIS POST by Fankee207

    To unlock bootloader on linux, just make sure adb and fastboot are installed
    Code:
     sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot
    on ubuntu based linux for example. No need to install full SDK.

    just add sudo before each command
    Ex:
    Code:
    sudo fastboot -i 0x1bbb oem unlock

    Should work, but I'have not tried myself since I have not received my idol yet
    No need specific drivers. Before beginning, you can run
    Code:
     adb devices
    to make sure your device is correctly detected
    Don't forget if problem with adb on linux, run
    Code:
     sudo adb kill-server 
    sudo adb start-server

    Thnaks you for the backup script. May I share it on french android forum forum.frandroid.com ?

    Of course you can..no wait ...you must! :D

    thansk you ,I will !

    You can download the script here: https://mega.nz/#!QtEG3TSb!DJ8N1dVRUYNPOLk8kQj2ggZfx8o5M9whiag5WFfANtc
    If you use the script for linux, don't forget to make it executable by running
    Code:
     sudo chmod +x backup_all_AOTI3.sh
    3
    Backup_all.sh based on DallasCZ's Backup_all.bat

    Backup_all.sh (For linux and mac users) based on @DallasCZ's Backup_all.bat in his google drive. This script will backup all partitions on the idol3 to a folder on both the external sdcard and the local pc.

    Code:
    echo BACKUP IDOL3 6045 partitions by DallasCZ _-_ Linux and Mac Shell Script by FameWolf
    echo This script REQUIRES root and saves the backup to a folder named "'idol3_blocks'" in your home directory.
    echo
    echo Press enter key to begin or Ctrl-C to abort.

    during the root process, does it really "flash" a boot.img?
    from the batch file, it appears we are booting a boot.img, from which we [presumably] push supersu to the system. thanks.
    my mistake, of course it only boot to the boot.img
