Firstly and foremost this is a follow on from this thread and would likely not have happened if not for the helpful users there:
Alcatel One Touch Pixi 3 Official Thread [ROOT][RECOVERY][ROMS]

Here are the different phone variant specs: 3.5", 4", 6", 7" screen sizes: http://www.gsmarena.com/results.php3...alcatel+Pixi+4

All feature a Mediatek CPU and Android Marshmallow except the 3.5" which comes with Lollipop, and are more technically branded as a TCL phone (the current chinese owner of the Alcatel brand)

Root and custom recovery have been achieved on the 3.5" 4017x model, the recovery image is attached, note ADB does not work in recovery, but there is a file manager.

NOTE #1: PLEASE PLEASE MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR ROM USING EITHER A CUSTOM RECOVERY OR MIRACLE BOX TOOL BEFORE DOING ANYTHING TO YOUR DEVICE. IT ISN'T POSSIBLE FOR ME TO HAVE ALL THESE DEVICES WITH THEIR BACKUPS AVAILABLE WHEN YOU MESS UP!!

NOTE #2: While SPFT is not fully compatible with our device in the way we would want it, it does detect our scatter file and you can flash images etc. BUT DO NOT FORMAT YOUR DEVICE UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WHATSOEVER. REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU SEE ON THE INTERNET DO NOT FORMAT YOUR DEVICE USING SPFT. IF YOU DO I WON'T BE SO WILLING TO HELP YOU.

NOTE #3: THERE SEEMS TO BE AN ISSUE WHEN UNLOCKING THE BOOTLOADER FOR THE 4034N AND 4034X MODELS OF THE PIXI 4 (4). Warning: Current Pixi 4 (4) 4034N will softbrick if you unlock the flash.

Pixi 4 ROMs
DISCLAIMER:
Rooting your phone and using custom Recoveries and ROM's have risks and may result in bricking your device, and has nothing to do with Google or the device manufacturers. In case of any mishap I am not responsible if you brick/ruin your phone in any way.
Basic computer skills are required and minimal knowledge about the phone and phone utilities also.
Make sure that whatever you do, you are doing it at your own responsibility.


ROMs

Be careful how you use these SPFT ROMs, they can sometimes cause more problems than solving because of model numbers.

Resurrection Remix - Pixi 4 (4) 3G | Pixi 4 (4.5) 4G | Pixi 4 (5) 3G | Pixi 4 (5) 4G | Pixi 4 (6)

Ported Stock ROMs - Pixi 4 (4) 3G | Pixi 4 (4.5) 4G | Pixi 4 (5) 3G | Pixi 4 (5) 4G | Pixi 4 (6)

Google Play crashed
KingRoot rooted.
First, the System App Managerapp (by flaki)
then it collapsed.
then I worked with System Cleaner ROOT application.
They have been integrated into the updates.
Removed Google Photos, Google Books, and the like. But no system files.
After the mobile phone is restored.
Restart. WiFi connection. Or 3G connection. They.
When checking for updates to Google Play crashes.
And again in the WiFi list.

9015w/Pixi4-7_4g-tmo
Is there a stock/rooted/custom rom for this variant? Having a tough time with a boot loop issue after changing the boot animation. Was able to root with kingroot successfully. I got a little to explorative. Was finally able to get into recovery but factory reset did not resolve the issue.

Its an alcatel one touch pop7 lte/4g

Any help would be appreciated.

Nope, it won't. This is for MTK devices only. You have a Qualcomm chipset.
