In order to be able to do more technical changes to your Alcatel TCL LX you will need to install some extra software on your computer system to bridge to flash custom firmware. Only do any of these technical functions to your phone if it is out of warranty and know that there is a risk of permanent damage to the device. Custom ROM can be found at XDA developers forum, also for ADB, CDC & VCOM functions are below.
Android based phones that use ADB drivers to interface with the phone to access advanced features that an advanced user of a phone may want to access. Changing the operating system/Custom ROM is one of the primary reasons to use it. For example, Linage OS which is a clean version of Android that has bloatware removed from it or Ubuntu touch which is a port of Ubuntu for mobile phones. Whatever you are going to do via the USB port that isn’t just accessing photos or other content that would be accessible with standard mass storage USB drivers will be done with the ADB interface, and whatever drivers are needed for your chipset.
