ABOUT
WINDOWS ONLY GUIDE
THIS GUIDE IS FOR THE PEOPLE SEEKING TO INSTALL TWRP AND OBTAIN A FIX FOR SOFT-BRICKED DEVICES
STEP 1
On a DESKTOP:
Download CURE_4 and extract to desktop (or a folder to your preference).
[Download Links at Bottom of Post]

On your PHONE:
Go to Settings > About phone > tap build number, till it says your a developer.
Go to Settings > Developer Options and enable OEM unlock, and USB debugging
Reboot Device

STEP 2
Connect Device to PC
Open your extracted folder and run START_HERE.bat
Let it run, it will copy files, execute temp root exploit, and open a new CMD window.
In the new window, copy/paste commands individually.
Code:
adb shell
run-as -s1
su
dd if=/data/local/tmp/twrp.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p25
When you see the following:
Code:
26404+0 records in
26404+0 records out
Get ready to pull out the battery ( reboot recovery does NOT work )
Put the battery back in and hold the PWR and VOL UP at the same time, when you see Alcatel splash let go of power but continue to hold volume up.
Say hello to TWRP!

STEP 3
Now we are going to install SuperSU it’s easy from here don’t fret!
IMPORTANT
BACKUP /SYSTEM PARTITION IN TWRP AND MAKE A COPY ON YOUR PC

Now that you have a backup go back and tap install. Tap on "up a level" then sdcard.
Find SuperSu.zip and swipe to install!
Reboot system! (this may take a few minutes so don’t freak out)
Verify that SuperSu got installed.
Go back to the extracted folder on your computer and run CLEANUP.bat

SOFT FIX
Boot up to custom recovery tap wipe > advanced wipe
Select Dalvik cache and Cache, then SWIPE to wipe
Go back to the Home Screen

Tap Advanced > fix permissions and Swipe
REBOOT AND ENJOY
If this fix did not work for you please do contact me as I have another method, I will be putting up a debloated version of the ROM soon.

I will be adding more to the guide, so make sure to turn on your notifications!
DOWNLOADS
Stock-ish ROM EXTRACT FROM ZIP FIRST! then flash as /system

Hey, it all worked, I had a soft bricked phone, and its booting now. I did the commands in OSX, I just opened the START_HERE.bat and saw your adb commands. The only hangup was that I couldn't push Supersu.zip to /sdcard/ because it wasn't writable for some reason, but I just pushed it to the tmp path from the other commands instead.

Thanks so much!

Odd it pushes supersu automatically. Might had something to do with the soft brick. Your welcome though! Spread the word!
