hello can you help me? i have the same device that you have. when i tryed to flash twrp in first page of thread my device is looped at alcatel logo. (alcatel logo then pixilated screen then alcatel logo again). My computer didnt see the device so i cant wipe the data or flash new twrp/rom. can you help me?
It's been so long I don't really remember but i think you need to flash a stock rom using the right scatter file, then boot to recovery to flash the fixed twrp. For your device to be recognized, you need to make sure you have the right drivers, the right SP Flash Tool version, and a good USB cable. You might also need to plug in the device at some certain point during boot or use a key combination I mentioned previously.

Make sure to read both my important comments in this thread, which are linked below.

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:

Easier root method thanks to @erriezzans
Hi My idol,

Just saw your pose and tried to brick my old phone now:)Just wondering how to use Rashr to flash the recovery.img. There are a few opitions in Rashr, like CWM Recovery, TWRP Recovery... which one do I need to choose? And how I can use the file CTRrecovery.img?
I know pretty silly question as I am really new to this. Much appreciated for your kindly reply. After this, I will try your another ROM. Thank you again!

    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.
