Hey guys , can someone help me why cant I run jellybean inspired gingerbread for ot990 . I install t but I got stuck on alcatel onetouch logo. I am able to install and use qme v2 rom but not this jellybean version ?

Thank u a lot.

It is becouse Jellybean inspired need gingerbread, not froyo, u need to install first 2.3.4 instead of 2.2.2 (stock Telenor ROM), PM me if u want to know how, ill explain u on serbian.


Best regards.

Hello,

Some links in 1st page don't work anymore, and I want to upgrade my ot-990 (actually 2.2.2).
Does anyone still have a revovery, ROM and gapps ? (I think CM7 / Android 2.3.4 is a good choice... am I wrong ?)

Thanks.

Cactus.

hey guys, I made backup for stock rom from recovery and then installed marina rom but it doesn't support Arabic language so I wanted to get back to the old rom so I went to recovery to restore the old stock rom and when it finished restoring the phone restarted and it looks as stock rom with my apps but it's still the marina rom in the settings and keep crashing and force close so it did nothing :(
I have tried to restore older one or install other roms and try to restore my stock rom but still the same :(
and also tried to use one touch upgrade tool q but it keeps showing network error :(
and I couldn't find stock rom 2.3.4 middle east version support Arabic :(
so if any one can help me to find me stock 2.3.4 Arabic version please and sorry for my bad English

Installing ClockworkMod Recovery

This is the same ClockworkMod Recovery 4.0.1.5 as in this post, just with the kernel patched to run on phones upgraded to Android 2.3.4.
  1. Windows users should download and install One Touch Upgrade Q (it includes the needed Windows drivers). Linux and Mac OS X users should download and install the Android SDK starter package, then use the Android SDK and AVD Manager to install at least the Android SDK Platform-tools component. Linux users should also configure the system as described in the Google Android development documentation.
  2. Download the attached file: View attachment 937716, unpack it.
  3. Switch the phone into fastboot mode:
    • disconnect the USB cable, turn off the phone;
    • press and hold the Volume Down button;
    • while holding the Volume Down button, press the Power button;
    • when the phone vibrates, release the Power button, but keep holding the Volume Down button;
    • keeping the Volume Down button pressed, connect the phone to your computer with the USB cable;
    • wait 3 seconds after connecting the USB cable, then release the Volume Down button.
  4. If using Windows, just run the install.bat file included in the archive. For other systems you need to run the commands manually:
    Code:
    fastboot erase recovery
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    fastboot reboot
Entering ClockworkMod Recovery

  1. Disconnect the USB cable, turn off the phone.
  2. Press and hold the Volume Up button.
  3. While holding the Volume Up button, press the Power button.
  4. When the phone vibrates, keep holding the Volume Up button, release the Power button, and immediately press and hold the Home button.
  5. Continue holding both the Volume Up and the Home buttons until the Android logo disappears, and you see a black screen with the keypad light turned on, then release both buttons.
  6. Wait while CWM recovery boot completes; you should see the menu as shown here.
WARNING: If you forget to press the Home button, or release it too early, a hardreset will be performed instead of entering the recovery — it will wipe all user data from the phone memory (but files on the microSD card will not be affected).

When working with the CWM recovery, use the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons to move between menu items, and the Home button to activate the selected item. Use the "reboot system now" item to exit the recovery.

Rooting the phone with ClockworkMod Recovery
  1. Download Superuser-3.0.7-efghi-signed.zip (or maybe a newer version from the Superuser home page).
  2. Place the downloaded file on the microSD card.
  3. Enter CWM recovery on the phone as described above.
  4. Select "install zip from sdcard" in the menu, then select the Superuser-3.0.7-efghi-signed.zip file.
  5. Select "reboot system now" to exit from recovery.

    BOOTLOADER SUCCESSFULLY UPGRADED WITHOUT OTU!!!!!!!!! GINGERBREAD 2.3 BOOTED ON TELENOR ONE TOUCH SERBIA

    WE HAVE A WORKING GINGERBREAD ON A TELENOR ONE TOUCH SERBIA!!! THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR HELP, ESPECIALLY qltsar, sigprof, gulyuk.s !!!!
    ***-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------***

    This is how I did it, step by step. I CHECKED THESE STEPS SEVERAL TIMES BUT THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT I FORGOT SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!

    IF YOU DONT KNOW WHAT ARE YOU DOING PLEASE DONT FOLLOW THIS MANUAL. I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR BRICKED PHONES OR ANY DAMAGE CAUSED BY YOUR OWN ACTIONS. IT WORKED FOR ME AND IT'S DONE ONLY ON TELENOR ONE TOUCH SERBIA. ITS FUNCTIONALITY IS NOT FULLY TESTED YET, THERE COULD BE BUGS*!! YOU ARE DOING IT AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!
    * currently known bugs: cant update preinstalled apps (gmail,search,youtube..) but this could be a google play problem

    YOU WILL ALSO LOSE YOUR WARRANTY!!!!!

    THESE STEPS WERE TESTED ON TELENOR BRANDED OT-990 WITH v53R-0 BUILD NUMBER ROM. THE PHONE WAS PREVIOUSLY UPDATED FROM v53H-0 to v53R-0 WITH OTU(ONE TOUCH UPGRADE) APPLICATION.

    BACKUP EVERYTHING BEFORE YOU PROCEED!!

    DO NOT PROCEED WITH STEPS IF ANYTHING DIFFERS FROM THIS MANUAL!!

    THESE ARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR WINDOWS 7, i did it on Win7 64bit

    1. You need to install Alcatel Android Manager and One Touch Upgrade from THIS LINK. Find it in Download tab. All the drivers are here.
    Also download and install Android SDK Tools. (SDK tools can be also downloaded from HERE). I have installed all these things so maybe you should too.
    2. Download PACK1 and unpack it. Put these recovery-clockwork-4.0.1.5-ot990.img, RecoveryManager_v0.34b.apk and update.zip (dont unpack this archive) files in the root of SD card (this is in your mobile device).
    3. Download PACK2 and unpack it on your computer. (WE WILL NEED THIS FOLDER IN STEP 7!!)
    4. Download PACK3 and unpack it on your computer. (WE WILL NEED THIS FOLDER IN STEP 15!!!)
    5. Shutdown the phone and then when its off enter the fastboot mode by holding the Volume Down and Power button at the same time. When you feel the vibration, release the Power button but hold the Volume Down a few seconds longer, dont let the android logo appear. Release the Volume Down button. The screen will be black, and you'll see the light from Options, Search, Back buttons of the phone.
    6. Connect your phone with usb cable.
    7. Find the folder where you unpacked the PACK2 archive from step 3. Double click on the install.bat and wait for process to finish. If everything is ok, the DOS prompt window will close and phone will reboot. He'll still be off, showing Battery charging.
    8. Disconnect the usb cable and power on the phone. When you walk through the Setup process of the phone (Language, Google account etc.) you'll have a rooted 2.2 ROM on your phone.
    9. Allow non-market applications to be installed by checking 'Unknown sources' in Settings/Applications, then go to File Manager and click on RecoveryManager_v0.34b.apk to install it.
    10. When Recovery Manager is installed open it and go to Recovery tab, choose install recovery and when he shows you a recovery-clockwork-4.0.1.5-ot990.img select it. After he is done select the Reboot into Recovery option. Phone will reboot.
    11. When phone enters a Recovery mode you will see something like this. (You are moving through the menu with Volume Up and Volume Down buttons and select with Home button.) Choose a second option apply sdcard:update.zip. Confirm this decision when he ask you to approve this action. Wait him to finish. When he is done choose reboot, i think its a first option.
    12. Have patience, booting will be slow. At this point Gingerbread should be installed and offer you to choose a language. But after that when you try to select a keyboard he will probably give an error, something like 'android.process... blah blah..' and give you a force quit option. SHUT DOWN THE PHONE!
    13. When the phone is off we are doing the step 5 again. Enter the fastboot mode!
    14. Connect the usb cable!
    15. Find the folder from step 4 where we extracted the PACK3 archive. Double click on the install.bat and wait him to finish. When it is done phone will reboot and start charging battery.
    16. Disconnect the usb cable.
    17. Power on the phone and go through the setup.

    YOU ARE DONE!
