Anyone manage to root the free "Telstra Essential Plus" aka Alcatel 1 (5033)??
I've been trying with no luck. Tried Kingroot (PC & apk)& Pharmroot both fail.
Looked at installing Magisk, there is no custom recovery I could find and cannot find a boot.img online to patch.
Cant figure out how to get the boot.img from phone without root. Is there another way?
I mainly just want to get microG on the phone for privacy and the HUGE battery life improvement without Google play services.
Should I post this request on another forum?
