    • This is really work, tested by my friend.
      Just Install and open kingroot(need net)
      automatic rotating wait until say check then tap ok.wait to finish..
      Later I will update and post some screenshots.

    • can't start rooting my ph there's no .exe file on usb vcom driver rar. i re download still no .exe file. Am I missing something? Please kindly reply. thanks.

  1. Unfortunately this method doesn't work for me. I have Alcatel Flash 2 and I believe Kingroot doesn't support this device yet.

  2. can you please provide another link for the app? it seems the link is broken. what is the version of your phone? thanks.

  3. Thank you very much Sir Papajack for updating your post. We really appreciate it. Thanks again. 🙂

  4. Thank you very much Sir and to the people who provide the necessary files to make this into reality. Kudos Guys. 🙂

    • @juniven welcome..Don't forget to tell to everyone about this blog..Thank you!,

  5. Sir Papajack, one question lang po. Have you tried it yourself? I have a problem with instruction #9 "Turn off your phone, connect your phone to the PC and wait for the flashing to commence." After turning off my device and connecting it to PC, how will I know if the process of flashing had started? The green download button turns gray and the gray stop button turns green. Other than that I don't see any sign of activities or anything. Please help.

    • There's indicator below located in SPFT that running in color yellow until green circle appear. This mean that the process is ongoing and wait to finish.

  6. I finally resolved my issues. I did not successfully installed all the necessary drivers for everything to work. Thanks for this great tutorial Sir Papajack. One thing I want to add, your step # 2 instructions seems vague especially to newbies, please give instructions on how to manually install unsigned drivers or give them links to some instructions on youtube about this matter. After weeks of frustration and sleep deprivation, I had finally come to the ultimate solution to this problem. I will tell my friends about your blog and share it with them. Once again thank you. 🙂

  7. can we use a stable version of supersu instead of the beta one? if possible please provide the download link.

    • This beta version has same function and stable version too. You don't need other version otherwise pay for developer of chainfire which superSU Pro version available in the market.

  8. thank you po na- root ko na po yung phone kaya lng nagkaproblema..habang nagi-install po ako ng app bigla nalang nagshutdown at nagloop. sa opening?

    • @ Gladz maybe the app that you installed is the main reason of shutdown not the process of rooting.

  9. Can u make backup File SPFT for alcatel flash 2 , to keep when my phone softbrick

  10. Hi Sir, I already rooted my af2. Can you also please make a backup of our stock rom flashable via twrp/spft? This will help us in fixing bootloop. 🙂 thanks sir.

  12. Pwede po bang gumamit ng windows 10? my difference po ba sir? Kasi wala akung magagamit na win 7 T_T

    • @kim Just try to connect your phone via usb cable without the battery and win 10 automatically install driver just make sure on your internet connection in your desktop or PC…

    • HOW TO DISABLE DRIVER SIGNATURE VERIFICATION FOR WINDOWS

      1. Press WINDOWS + C on your keyboard or slide your mouse to the right side for the Charms Bar to appear.

      Click on the SETTINGS icon.

      2. A new bar will appear, then click on CHANGE PC SETTINGS.

      3. PC SETTINGS WINDOW will appear, click UPDATE AND RECOVERY.

      3. UPDATE AND RECOVERY WINDOW will then appear, click RECOVERY.

      4. Then beside the Recovery tab, may tatlong options.

      a. REFRESH YOUR PC…

      b. REMOVE EVERYTHING…

      c. ADVANCED STARTUP…

      5. Click RESTART NOW below the ADVANCED STARTUP option.

      6. Your Computer will reboot.

      7. You will be asked to choose an option.

      a. CONTINUE…

      b. TROUBLESHOOT…

      8. Choose TROUBLESHOOT.

      9. Another set of options will appear, choose ADVANCED OPTIONS.

      10. Under advanced options, choose STARTUP SETTINGS.

      11. Then a list of features will be shown, Click the RESTART option.

      12. Then a list from 1-9 will be shown, these are the startup settings.

      13. Press number 7, or F7 for the DISABLE DRIVER SIGNATURE ENFORCEMENT.

      14. Your PC will now reboot and you will be able to install the MTK Drivers.

    • Lol, it's too extreme.
      You don't really have to refresh your PC to install unsigned driver. Just go to advanced startup, and choose disable driver signature enforcement. If your driver still can't be installed in disabled state, try plug to another usb port.

    • ano ginawa mo @kimberey ? d gumana sa akin eh, na disable ko na ang digital sigs pero wala pa rin, may exclamation point pa ring yung drivers ko. d ako maka run ng spft

    • im using win10, disabled digital sigs and installed mtk preloader. but I have a yellow triangle icon after restart. is it ok? if it is, how long does it take to flash?

    • It only takes approximately 2-5 mins running in SPFT. If above, then you must proceed to the first step again until you succeed.,

    • Even the same specs has different partitions and kernels. It can cause bootloop and deadboot . You can try but do it at your own risk.

    • Ok try kingroot 4.1 in the link above Just install and tap root. Make sure you have internet connection then tell me what happen…

  13. My tanong po ako.. Sir PapaJack. san po ako makaka kuha ng firmware nito? my na tweak ako sa system file niya tapos. kahit anong hard reset ko.. andun parin ung changes.. nag unresponding ung apps… T_T

    • @kimberey try to visit my stock rom section then you can find what you are looking for. here

  14. or kahit generic Firmware nlng po. sinubukan ko narin mag unroot… tapos mag Hard Reset… wala parin… di ako maka lagay ng google account… so di ako maka google play store T_T

    • @kimberey If still not work even on hard reset. Then try to update your time. Follow this tutorial HERE. If still yet just tell me.

    • Thanks pala sa stock firmware po… na install ko na po Kernel version 3.10.65 modded version po ba ito??? How about kung mag a.update ako sa Marshmallow.. sa pagka intindi ko, once na divirginized na ung phone, nawawala na ung warranty as well as the ability to update it via "About Phone > Wireless update".. meron nabang Marshmallow Firmware na compatible sa AF2? or any method to update android version from 5.1 to 6.0??

    • Yap you need to unroot and flash stock recovery to update via OTA

  15. Excellent, success with method 2 but Vista must download VCOM USB driver MT6589 in the link guiding Flashtool. Btw, how did you have Twrp file? As i know all tools to build custom recovery haven't supported Lollipop yet.

    • Yap but some of them had find a way to ported in Lollipop version just like this.

    • What do you mean not supported? Just follow instruction above or readback the comment most of them works properly!.

  16. sir @papajack gemperle ..can you make a spft back up for our af2 .incase if all system are wiped .so we can still revive the phone.

    • You can revive even on custom recovery just backup your device using custom recovery (twrp). If incase wiped? Just flash custom recovery via spft and restore your backup in TWRP.

  17. sir @papajack gemperle ..can you make a spft back up for our af2 .incase if all system are wiped .so we can still revive the phone.
