How to upgrade from android 4.3 to 4.4 - Alcatel idol 2s 6050Y


AC Question


Can someone point me into the right direction how to upgrade
a Alcatel Idol 2S (6050Y), currently on android 4.3 to Android 4.4. - there is of course no upgrade provided by the carriere - it is an unlocked phone.

I see that BELL (Canada) does provide this upgrade to their customers
(I can not post the link, but on support page of bell ca is a update - anyway, I am not from Canada or with BELL, so this update does not work for me)

So I am sure it will run on that phone.

I am a noob on that.
How do I root that phone?
Where do I download the 4.4. Version?
How do I flash it?

It is okay if all data on the phone gets lost, there is nothing saved on it at the moment.

Why do I need that? Want to run Pokemon...

Hi, there are a tone of YouTube videos on how to root your device - they can show you step by step, which would be easier.
