So my wife purchased the One Touch Fierce 2 after her Fierce 1 soft bricked (there wasn't ANY support out there for a stock firmware or update.zip). This is a nice device: http://www.phonearena.com/phones/Alcatel-OneTouch-Fierce-2_id8868

Can we come up with an official root process? I haven't tried the usual Framaroot or Towelroot because there isn't anything official to fall back on like an update.zip or something from Alcatel.

A method for rooting, bootloader unlock, and custom recovery would be awesome for this device.

Any suggestions??

I also would like cyanogen on this device just bought myself

Really excited about this device when lanched just feels a little laggy but if we get a custom kernel we could all be gravy and also use find a way to use SD card as internel memory.

Titanium backup will push all apps to SD with no problem

Maybe another root exploit will surface and coincidentally work for this device. Hopefully. Devs never intentionally show love to Alcatel devices ??

Memory

So today i got my 32gb sd card I ordered on amazon amd was looking at ways to move most apps to sd with no root and found a way. Google search: app to sd no root and the guide is by instructables. I now have about 560mb free on my internal storage.

There isnt going to be root for this phone anytime soon. We might be lucky if we get Lollipop next year. Good thing this is a temporary phone for me.

root exploit vulnerability from z4root

There a exploit in the z4root if someone can a way to somehow combine the z4root with towelpie root rooting mite be possible the alcatel is vulnerable to the z4root because it will try to attempt to acquire a root shell with the temporarily root before shutting of if there a way to combine this root with the exploit from the towelpie for kitkat. Rooting may be possible im not a developer or ill try myself

Hi:

I have an alcatel 7040N, its from metro pcs, i need to flash it and cant be detected by alcatel upgrade tool. Then i wonder if someone knows where to get some rom for this model to load it from sdcard.

I have polarbox and octoplus, does exist any procedure to flash or unbrick the device with these tools?

Successful Root

download Kingo Root APK from kingroot(d0t)net/root I downloaded AnTuTu Benchmark App from the Google Play Store, pressed "TEST", let it run until 10% and then pressed the home button to put it in the background and opened Kingo Root and it lagged quite a bit until about 70%; rebooted and was rooted! If it fails, go to Kingo Root App Info and clear the cache/data and try again!

    succes

    I Finally rooted my alcatel Fierce 2 after a lot of failures.

    I used KingRoot 4.1

    It was getting stuck on 22% all the time so what I did was before it got stuck I press home button to minimize it and I relaunch the app and when it opened was at 56% and did not stop until root was successful.

    I do not know if I was lucky but it worked.
    I hope this help.

    I'm willing to donate a test phone and money to a developer that wants to jump in on this. I'm not good enough to form an exploit
