Hey if you know how to do twrp images would it help you to have the twrp of the phone before this one the 683? A modder on here showed how to root it and made a custom twrp only problem it didnt recognize sd card
Also if your tv doesnt support cast buy a cheap roku and your assurance phone android box will cast to your tv .Oh so everyone knows one really badass feature of this phone that my new lg cant do is..... Wait for it .... Ok go buy a 1 to 3 hundred android box for your tv ..... This phone is an android box for your tv . It casts to the screen and has Adoptable Storage so all your apps that play cool movies even kodi will cast to your tv .
This phone is treble compatible, so a GSI rom should work - problem is we need drivers for the SoC. As far as I can tell the QM215 is under the MSM8937. I haven't had time with testing this to be sure. As far as TWRP, it will have to be ported in using a phone with similar specs (CPU and GPU) there are a few out there but none of them had TWRP support either. Needless to say, it will be tough to get this phone rooted but I believe possible even without a native stock recovery and ROM.
NO ONE follow the above link; its a malicious site that has too many redirects to even count. All you do is Click the download link it takes you to another page will you click a download link and you're taken to another page and then back to the original page over and over and over again. It is a terrible sight and many many times to Google. And it's very discouraging one of our fellow ex-dea members is it part of this crap and you don't try screw people over or hack people it's just not right and if it's something you might doing but you don't belong here!Sure, all I did was confirm that the bootloader was unlocked by enabling developer options, going to bootloader unlock and confirming it was greyed out where it also said the bootloader was already unlocked, then I did a search for TWRP recovery for our device model and found that, which anyone can build if they know how as it's open source, and also found a root method. I basically just spent a lot of time searching and reading. I'm most definitely going to copy everything and back everything up before I do anything just to be safe.

Sorry for posting here but can you tell me where you got these bootloaders from? I'm looking for the alcatel one and the only reference I've found so far is from this postUpdate: Using QFIL, it might be possible to pull the entire partition data. However, I have not been able to find an EDL programmer that works for this chipset: MSM8937 (QM215). Without a working programmer, it is not possible to pull partition data nor flash firmware or recovery. Here is a list of the ones I have tried so far:
I have tried programmers from other chipsets as well (just for kicks) but the bottom line is we are not going to be able to get root access without the correct programmer. Any help is appreciated.
When you get to the UMX logo froze screen by using adb reboot bootloader/fastboot in adb mode that froze screen is fastbootI tried and failed but I am a new fish at this. To access the recovery menu boot while holding volume up and power. Realease power as soon a phone vibrates. soon you ei lsee the robot lying on hi back. Hold the up volume and briefly tap the power button. Now you can select reboot to bootloader. It will just sit there on Ultimate Mobile Experience logo and adb does not work. I am guessing there are additional key strokes needed while rebooting to bootloader but I do not know.
