I found a possibility to root our lovely OT Idol S (I don't know if it's good to other Idol series phones...)

 

1. First of all, download and install the Alcatel Manager from here: Link (~74 MB)

 

2. In Settings - About phone menu tap 7 times to the Build number, so you now on developer mode.

 

3. In Settings now you can find a Developer Settings menu. Go on and switch on the USB debugging option!

 

4. Now connect your phone to your computer and wait until it install the drivers.

 

5. Than download this little file [android_root] and run it!

 

6. Wait until it find your device and then click Root!

 

7. Than the phone restarts and it's done!

 

 

Thanks to p0rn from Idol S thread, mobilarena.hu!

 

Watch out! It's for developers! No guarantee!

This is good.

 

But there are no roms for this device? And where are the communities?

 

Regards

 

No roms, because no source code... :( And there are a community on a hungarian forum: mobilarena - idol s

 

We're want to compile a cwm recovery now! ;)

Does anyone know how I can unlock this phone?

Had a look on ebay - found this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Alcatel-Unlock-Code-fast-unlocking-code-Idol-Idol-Mini-Idol-S-IDOL-S-Slate-Idol-/131120564645?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item1e876509a5.

 

However it tells me I need a provider ID code, which is on the battery. It doesn't look like I can access the battery without causing damage to the phone.

The PID is on the phone's box, what look like: 6034R - ******* (7 characters of the phone specific). I hope I help you! ;)

...after trying another one that charged 3 times more and had to give me a refund because they could not get the codes however this seller unlocked worked fine.

I've been trying to download the Carliv and CWM recoveries for Idol S but the links seem to be dead. Can someone post another link to download please?
