***-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------***

This is how I did it, step by step. I CHECKED THESE STEPS SEVERAL TIMES BUT THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT I FORGOT SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!

IF YOU DONT KNOW WHAT ARE YOU DOING PLEASE DONT FOLLOW THIS MANUAL. I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR BRICKED PHONES OR ANY DAMAGE CAUSED BY YOUR OWN ACTIONS. IT WORKED FOR ME AND IT'S DONE ONLY ON TELENOR ONE TOUCH SERBIA. ITS FUNCTIONALITY IS NOT FULLY TESTED YET, THERE COULD BE BUGS*!! YOU ARE DOING IT AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!
* currently known bugs: cant update google apps, gmail,search,youtube..
THESE STEPS WERE TESTED ON TELENOR BRANDED OT-990 WITH v53R-0 BUILD NUMBER. THE PHONE WAS PREVIOUSLY UPDATED FROM v53H-0 to v53R-0 WITH OTU(ONE TOUCH UPGRADE) APPLICATION

BACKUP EVERYTHING BEFORE YOU PROCEED!!

DO NOT PROCEED WITH STEPS IF ANYTHING DIFFERS FROM THIS MANUAL!!

THESE ARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR WINDOWS 7, i did it on Win7 64bit

1. You need to install Alcatel Android Manager and One Touch Upgrade from THIS LINK.Find it in Download tab. All the drivers are here.
Also download and install Android SDK Tools. I have installed all this things so maybe you should too.
2. Download CWM recovery image, Recovery Manager apk, FOTA update.zip. Unpack the RecoveryManager_v0.34b.zip. Put those recovery-clockwork-4.0.1.5-ot990.img, RecoveryManager_v0.34b.apk and update.zip (dont unpack this archive) files in the root of SD card.
3. Download the Hungarian rom dump 2.2.2. Unpack the archive, you'll see two folders - dump and firmware. Copy boot.img, custpack.img, recovery.img, system.img files from 'firmware' folder and FOTA.img, FOTAFLAG.img files from 'dump' folder to a new folder with name 'gingerbread' (for example).
4. Download fotaflag_modem_upgrade.zip and unpack the fotaflag_modem_upgrade.mbn file to a 'gingerbread' folder.
5. Download the Telenor Gingerbread rom dump Unpack it, and copy(dont move, just copy) adb.exe, AdbWinApi.dll, AdbWinUsbApi.dll, fastboot.exe,install.bat files to the 'gingerbread' folder. (REMEMBER WHERE YOU EXTRACTED THIS ARCHIVE, WE WILL NEED THIS FOLDER IN STEP 17!!!)
6. Right click on install.bat in 'gingerbread' folder and choose Edit. Replace the whole content of file with following commands:


adb.exe reboot-bootloader
ping 1.1.1.1 -n 1 -w 10000
fastboot.exe -w
fastboot.exe erase boot
fastboot.exe erase recovery
fastboot.exe erase system
fastboot.exe erase custpack
fastboot.exe flash boot boot.img
fastboot.exe flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot.exe flash system system.img
fastboot.exe flash custpack custpack.img
fastboot.exe flash FOTA FOTA.img
fastboot.exe flash FOTAFLAG FOTAFLAG.img
fastboot.exe flash FOTAFLAG fotaflag_modem_upgrade.mbn
fastboot.exe reboot

Save it and exit.

7. Shutdown the phone and then when its off enter the fastboot mode by holding the Volume Down and Power button. When you feel the vibration, release the Power button but hold the Volume Down a few seconds longer, dont let the android logo appear. Release the Volume Down button. The screen will be black, and you'll see the light from Options, Search, Back buttons of the phone.
8. Connect your phone with usb cable.
9. Double click on the install.bat in a 'gingerbread' folder and wait for process to finish. If everything is ok, the DOS prompt window will close and phone will reboot. He'll still be off, showing Battery charging.
10. Disconnect the usb cable and power on the phone. When you walk through the Setup process of the phone (Language, Google account etc.) you'll have a rooted 2.2 ROM on your phone.
11. Allow non-market applications to be installed by checking 'Unknown sources' in Setting/Applications, then go to File Manager and click on RecoveryManager_v0.34b.apk to install it.
12. When Recovery Manager is installed open it and go to Recovery tab, choose install recovery and when he shows you a recovery-clockwork-4.0.1.5-ot990.img select it. After he is done select the Reboot into Recovery option. Phone will reboot.
13. When phone enters a Recovery mode you will see something like this. (You are moving through the menu with Volume Up and Volume Down buttons and select with Home button.) Choose a second option apply sdcard:update.zip. Confirm this decision when he ask you are you sure. Wait him to finish. When he is done choose reboot, i think its a first option.
14. Have patience, booting will be slow. At this point Gingerbread should be installed and offer you to choose a language. But after that when you try to select a keyboard he will probably give an error, something like 'android.process... blah blah..' and give you a force quit option. SHUT DOWN THE PHONE!
15. When the phone is off we are doing the step 7 again. Enter the fastboot mode!
16. Connect the usb cable!
17. Find the folder from step 5 where we extracted the Telenor Gingerbread romdump archive (folder name will be 'original_telenor_GB_v5GY-0' - DONT USE THE 'gingerbread' folder we previously used) and execute install.bat. Wait him to finish, when its done phone will reboot and start charging battery.
18. Disconnect the usb cable.
19. Power on the phone and go through the setup.

YOU ARE DONE!
