Thanks Pyntux. I'll check if these steps will work. I'm currently updating it to 2.8.0 as we speak.

I got OTA update from Alcatel for 6030X (which is update.zip) and friend modified that update.zip to use to root phone... I'm not sure does that works, or does works on 6030A, but i think worst which can be is that recovery says to you "file is wrong" or something... So you can try to install zip below with stock recovery:

> what do i do with this update, don't know how to apply this. Thanks for the help.

I'm not sure if that works on 6030A, and that's not update, just modified "update.zip" to use for root... Just reboot in to stcok recovery with button combo:

power & volume +

, than choose "apply update from sd card" and choose that zip...

I believe, I'm all set! I needed to download the MediaTek USB VCOM drivers and after that tried to follow the steps provided by Pyntux without upgrading to 2.8.0. Open Titinum backup and root access is already enabled! Not sure if I still need to apply the update.zip.

You do not need to apply update.zip, that is just another way to root phone...(non tested way...)

How did you root your phone? With update.zip which I posted or how?

I followed the Serbian Link you provided, but I skipped the Alcatel One touch upgrade 2.8.0. Installed the MediaTek USB VCom drivers to my laptop (SP Flash was able to detect my phone this time). Continued to follow the steps (Serbian Steps) and was able to root the phone after that. Thanks!

Guys -

Do you have any idea if we can update this phone to 4.2.1 jelly bean?

For now we can not, because any OTA update from Alcatel is just update of 4.1.1, not a upgrade...and there's no custom roms for now, so you can only use stock rom (4.1.1) or make your own custom rom... :)

Why you need that? And what you gonna do with stock rom? If your rom have some bug or you did something, just install Alcatel Upgrade Tool and folow instructions and you will after that have factory settings on your phone...

The past week i've been experiencing lotd of battery drain, like 8% per hour in standby. I had a lot of stuff installed so i did a factory reset and started over with just a few apps. Everything was fine battery drain about 1-2% per hour... untill this morning when added some music to the sd and since then ive lost about 40% in 3 hours. I installed Better battery stats and it shows media storage as second highest battery drainer. Anybody know what's happening?
