I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY ADVERSE WITH YOUR PHONE!!! You do it at your own risk !!!

First of all your Idol 2 must be rooted and you must install touch recovery, find it here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=55723217&postcount=6

Please make a backup first, before you do anything!!! Just in case...

Link for Android L Mod: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9v4FSeSYlHcSWQ2dThrM21UTzg/view?usp=sharing

Please download zip from here and extract it. Install Rom Manager and copy the unzipped folder OT_Idol_2_Android_L_by_Duca to sd card clockworkmod / backup / here. Directory OT_Idol_2_Android_L_by_Duca in itself must have: custpack.img, nandroid.md5, system.ext4.tar and system.ext4.tar.a ...

Get into Recovery, go to Wipe Menu - Do Factory Reset, WipeDalvik Cache and Wipe Cache. After that, go to Backup and Restore and the Advance Backup Restore - Advanced Restore and find OT_Idol_2_Android_L_by_Duca, click system and then to custpack, Reboot phone and that's it.

This is a very beautiful, and this visualization really pleasing to the eye. You have done well, Duca)

Thanks! I'm glad you like it. Since this will be the first rom for our lovely Idol 2 :)

Added recovery option.

And this is also based on 4.2.2? By the way, excellent work duca, I like it very much.
Yes, it is based on 4.2.2.
I have some problem with making the rom because Android Kitchen can't see the phone. I've tried many things with edify_defs but the phone is still unknown :) Hopefully I will figure that out soon and finish the rom!
Thanks for the nice words guys!

I've ported today touch recovery 2.5 thanks to Master Shifu Carliv and yuweng! So owners of Idol 2 if you want to add please just install Mobile Uncle from playstore and put recovery.img in the root of your sdcard. From Mobile Uncle go to Recovery Update and the first one on the list should be recovery.img, just install it and you will have touch recovery on your phone.

I don't think it's going to work on 6037K, because "K" has 2 sim cards. And 6037Y has only 1...Am I right?
You can try to flash it, but please make a backup first!

Hello.
I have installed the Recovery and copied the files to sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/ but when I go into Recovery to restore the system, it says 'E: can't mount /sdcard/'.
Does it have to be on the external SD Card? I don't have one now to test.

EDIT:
You do need an external SD Card to restore backups.

it may work but maybe you lose 2 SIM slot..you can only use 1 SIM..but try it on your own risk..difference from y and k are 8GB vs 16GB and single sim vs dual sim..maybe Duca can answer it better..by the way a mod for dual sim version will be awsome.:D

Does it work on the 6036A?

Hello Duca, nice work here!

I'm impressed about all the details and all the effort you are putting in this mod, man, I must say it is better than the guys at alcatel, lol.

Do you think think this will work on my 6036A? It came with 4.3 and I rooted it with TowelRoot.

Thanks in advance and keep up the great work!
