D2303 model
4.4.2 build 18.3.C.0.37
Unlocked bootloader (waiting for a suitable recovery).

The objective would include:
1/ a compatible recovery;
2/ a system partition which could be r/w mounted to allow a busybox to be installed;
3/ an effective root method.

Let me know how to proceed further

In locked bootloader I did the following for root in KitKat:
1.-Install firmware for flahstool Jelly Bean
Rooting 2.- in the firmware with towelroot
3. Install superuser apk
4.-Go to the center and wait for the OTA update KitKat or press update the System tab in the center of upgrade.
Choose 5.- download the update
6.-Wait for it to download, install and select the phone will restart automatically.
7-Waiting to start just
8-Go to SuperSU
9-Install an app that requires root and verify that the root still works.

... snip.

Can you confirm you have full root, not the 50 % root with system r/w protection?

Which variant are you using? D2303 requires a computer to upgrade.
