New rom Alcatel 8079

Hello

Do you have a new rom version for Alatel 8079 (Android 5.0.1 build 01006 or Android 5.1)? Because what’s available here doesn’t install many apps from the Play Store.

Thanks
 
Found this alcatel pixie 3 4.5 (4g) in cupboard was a tough little bugger to root/twrp

Had to root with kingo root then replace with super su to get busybox installed as system was stuck on ro.
After that I then had to flash UNsu.zip, flashed magisk 21.0 and all was good. Some messing around though.
Think I'll just stick to disabling/debloating the 5.1. 0 lollipop stock rom and stick with that though. Thanks for the help OP (from the archives)

Respect

Hi everybody,
I own an old Pixi 3 8.0 tablet (model 9022X) but it's stuck in a bootloop. I haven't found any custom rom or official firmware dump on the internet, so I think that my only hope is to restore the original rom using Mobile Upgrade Q.
When I try, it stop at 20% because it can't find a newer version on the server.
There is some options (command line parameter, file .ini editing or other magical trick) to force Mobile Upgrade reinstalling the same version?
Otherwise, could someone share a firmware's dump so I can try to flash it via QPST?
Thanks in advance and happy holidays to everyone!

I FORMAT ALL PARTITION OF THE PHONE, then I open adb sideload and put in the cmd: adb sideload MIUI 7 v5.10.2.gm.zip. Up to here we are. Now the problem is when it starts flashing. then at some point (if I remember correctly 57%) it says: adb: failed to read command: No error. The phone restarts and stays in the boot forever (Obviously there is no operating system).

Help please

You can use SP Flash Tool v5.1612.

Download Link:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/zi7f6...h_Pixi_3_9002X_MT6582_27022016_4.4.2.zip/file (DONT WORRY IF IS 9002!)



Extract this, then open sp flash tool, and then select the scatter file, click download and then insert the USB cable in your phone (the phone can be on booting, on boot loop)

Hey, I have a Pixi 3 10 8079 and it got stuck in a boot loop after I tried installing twrp. I see a glitchy screen when it boots. SP Flash Tool won't see the tablet. I am on Linux. What can I do?

    KINDLY READ THIS FIRST POST BEFORE PROCEEDING TO DO ANYTHING TO YOUR PHONE. I WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS IF YOU DISREGARD THIS!!

    I'll advise anyone thinking of modifying their phone to first make a backup with SmartPhoneFlashTool (SPFT).
    It's the best way to backup and restore your stock ROM (if you want OTA updates ;) ).
    You should make this backup before even rooting your phone. If you rooted, then unroot it and make the backup with SPFT.


    Link to make a backup with SPFT- https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-526.html

    We're good? Sure we're good? Made your backup? Then proceed below to reap the benefits of rooting and custom ROMs.

    How to root and recovery Pixi 3 (4) 3G

    Yesterday i ported a clockworkmod recovery from the Alcatel Pop D3 to this phone so root is now possible :laugh:.

    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.


    Requirements:

    - PC running Windows 7/8/8.1/10
    - USB cable
    - CTR recovery


    Instructions:

    1. Download the attached Kingroot.apk and send it to your phone's storage. If the kingroot.apk does not work for you , try the PC version you may have a better chance of rooting using that. Link here

    2. Install kingroot and make sure there is a working internet connection.

    3. Click on root and there you go. Root access for Alcatel One Touch Pixi 3(4). :D

    4. Or if you already have a custom recovery you can flash Update-SuperSu.zip. :laugh: SuperSu link here


    Flashing Recovery:


    1. Download and install Flashify or Rashr from Google Play.

    2. Download the attached recovery.img and place on your sdcard( you should rename it the recovery to recovery.img).

    3. Flash the recovery.img using Flashify or Rashr and enjoy. :laugh:
