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??

Soo, about that bootloader though? Anyone unlock it? Can we use recovery builder to make a custom recovery from stock? Knowing theres noo way to flash a stock back makes me very careful right now, im rooted, I used kingroot. It took three tries, pc version. I removed all bloat, exchanged kingusersu for supersu pro. If anyone needs help doing that part, you have to have to leave the kinguser su installed because it gives permission to supersu to install its binary. Once the binary is installed, then go to options and install it to system. Then finally you are able to remove the kinguser su without suffering any setbacks using a system app remover. If you dont follow that order you will have to reroot.

Still looking for custom ROMs and how to install a recovery I've found that the phone actually has a recovery mode but I cannot use ROM manager with it which sucks because I can't backup

I backed up my phone using ADB by dumping the recovery and boot to .img files
I also made a backup with online nandroid backup app.
This gave me a CWM backup.
I installed Kitchen in CYGWIN and rebuilt the ROM. I used the add root to Boot.img which shows the boot img is unsecured. I also DE-Odexed the ROM. By creating the EDIFY_Defs file using the phones mountpoints i got through ADB kitchen builds good META-INF folder.
So now i have a good UPDATE.ZIP.
Problem is you cant load it with the stock recovery.

I get error Signature Failed.

We need a factory UPDATE.ZIP. the only way we can get that is if someone has a phone thats not updated yet. They can capture the OTA Update.Zip and that is loadable with the stock revovery.

Anyway so i have a good ROM that can be loaded if someone knows a way to flash it.
If we can get that OTA Update im sure we could use it to fix any Broken Phones.

Alcatel One Touch Fierce 2 Root

I used Kingroot. So far it's worked. I followed and read a lot of different material regarding root of this phone. I did install it once before with no success. I uninstalled it, waited a few days and tried it again. It shows that my phone is rooted. I tried 4 or 5 root checkers to make sure they all gave me the same results. Hope this helps

I do recommend swapping Kinguser for SuperSu, I have seen numerous compatibility issues with root applications in my own experience. The Kingroot team is doing an awesome job, but their Su app is still lacking nonetheless. There is a few ways to do this posted in the forums I recommend doing so and you will notice an increase in performance and compatibility!

    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
