I found it! I have finally rooted the 918D! I have tried all the methods reported here with no luck, but finally I found a new root method that propably works for all the 918D!

First o all a BIG THANKS to the member Breakk from www.movilesdualsim.com forum who found and posted this solution. The original link is this: http://www.movilesdualsim.com/foro/t...droid-2-3-5%29

In short:
1) Take a backup of your important files from the phone (contacts, applications, etc.). Propably you will not lose anything, but its better to be 100% safe. Make sure the battery is fully charged.
2) Turn off your phone and open the Device Manager on your pc. Connect the mobile to the usb port. An unknown device will appear instantly, it will disappear and then it will reappear. Right click on it and choose to update driver manualy.Depending on the OS you have (xp, vista, 7) install the appropriate driver from here Drivers MTK6516_PL-2303_para_XP, vista y win 7.rar
You should notice now a new device that is be called "usb modem driver modify by mobileuncle.com". Make sure you have properly install the driver, disconnect and reconnect your mobile phone in the same usb port to confirm this. After successful installation the device dissappears from the Device Manager after a few seconds, don't worry - this is normal. Now unplug the phone from the usb port of your computer.
3) Download the system.img from this link system918.rar and decompress.
4) Download the flash tool and scatter.txt from here herramientas-918D.rar and decompress.
5) Open flashtool.exe and right click on the yellow foldoer button on the right that says "Scatter-loading", browse for the file MT6573_Android_scatter_Alcatel_OT_918D.txt (located in the folder you downloaded in step 4) and coose open. In the two windows that will appear about the BMT and the bootloader just press ok.
6) From the list that appeared scroll down and click in the box "Android". After that click on the word Android and browse for the file system.img (the file you downloaded in Step 3) and open it.
7) Now click the button Download in the top of the flashtool window. This will initiate a 15 second countdown at the bottom of the window, plug the 918D in the usb port during this countodown. You will see a yellow bar, wait until it goes reaches 100%. Once this is done there will be a message that will report that you successfully completed the process,also a green/white circle will appear in the flashtool and on the screen of your mobile the battery charging indicator will appear. Unplug the phone from the usb port and press the power. The phone will start and the Android logo will appear, now just wait a few minutes without touching anything on the phone (buttons or touchscreen), it will take some time to load the system.img. Once the screen displays the menu that asks for password the for 2 SIM cards you are ready, you have succesfully rooted the 918D!

Ofcourse i have to say that I do not take any responsibility if anything goes wrong with your phone. Personally I didn't experience any problems and also didn't lose anything useful (contacts,applications or something else) from my phone. At last I have ROOT!

good luck

Everything was okay ( only small differences to the describing ) until the last step.(7)
After clicking the download button and connecting the phone I received the following message:
EBOOT ERROR16008)
[Android] Partition size changed!
[HIN]:
Partial images download error.
The following partition must be down FULL downloaded all together.

I tried to download the image again, but the same error...

I'm using a 16GB card ( original 2 GB). With out the card the same error...

What to do? Could somebody send me the file?

ringrazio anticipatamente.

I have a problem, the first time I connected the mobile phone (closed) to a USB port it makes me see the icon installation “No drivers found and says unknown device”, then I go to the "device manager" on my pc and I can not even find the driver icon because it is not recognized to install the drivers downloaded;
