when you load the scarter you will not see anything you have to go to location and give the directory of the file in the Rom folder that you have downloaded, start from "lk" if it gives you some eror ignore and go on you will see that it loads everything

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?sQuickSearch=yes&sName=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.
how i can install this recovery img?

Hello guys, I have a problem and I hope someone can give me some tips

I have 13 smartphone Pixi 4 4034 that should be 4034x looking into the phone info, and I am not able to put a custom recovery on them.

I need a custom recovery in order to restore from SD my backup, and i was able to root and put a custom recovery on lots of Pixi 4 4034 Version , but not this version 4034X-2AALGBA-1, and all these 13 pixi 4 has this model label under the battery.

I' ve tried every recovery I was able to found on the internet, any combination with SP flash tool with stock scatter file + custom recovery only but I wasn't able to do anything.. any tips?

Thanks in advance

Ok finally I was able to do it!!

for the Pixi 4 4034x 2AAL version you need to use the stock recovery of the 2xALRUA


flash it with SP flash tool but not the preloader and your smartphone will be fine.

Then, in order to get a TWRP recovery you need to use this simple tool and in 30 sec with the stock recovery of the 2xALRUA you will be able to create the custom recovery

TWRP recovery porting


and that's it, enjoy!

Hi elfigus,
Glad you managed to get your problem sorted out. I also have a pixi 4, which is flashed with 4034X-2AALRUA, but have been looking for 4034X-2AALGBA-1 for a very long time to return my phone to original stock. If there is any chance that you could send me a copy of the backup you say you have for this firmware, i would be eternally greatful.
I look forward to your reply,
Many thank's,
silverf1sh.

Hello, I'll upload the Stock ROM that has something to do with XA AX in the name ^^ So maybe you will be able to solve your problem!

try this 2xALGB1 https://mega.nz/file/0YlUyByK#cmTPSTIGNbtrX4IYEsFqFEvNMqPLoPtKueRj0b2Njwo

the other alternative I have is the 2x ALRUA what saved my 2AALGBA-1

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

    Alcatel Pixi 4 (4)(5)(5.5)(6)Unlock Bootloader, Root & TWRP 3.0.2-0

    Requirements
    • ADB/Fastboot drivers (Install system wide)
    • Backed up contacts, apps or any other personal information. I recommend Super Backup
    • Windows PC, not tested on Linux but should work too.
    • All files in the attachment below respective to your device. They are not flashable zips, extract them to get your files.
      TWRP Pixi 4 (6)- Here
      TWRP Pixi 4 (5)- Here

    Unlocking Bootloader

    - Power on device and boot into Android.
    - Connect the device to PC through cable.
    - Go to settings -> about phone -> hit 7-8 times on "build number", congrats, you're now a developer!
    - Go to settings -> developer options -> hit USB debugging and press OK on the popup window. If the connection is working, one more popup is going to appear asking you to allow the connection, Tick the box "always allow from this computer" and press OK.
    - Enable OEM unlocking also located in developer options.
    - Open the command prompt window and check if the device is working properly by typing "adb devices". The serial number of your device should appear, so everything is OK!
    - Now, boot into fastboot typing "adb reboot bootloader". The device is going to reboot and boot into fastboot mode, waiting for command.
    - For the bootloader to be unlocked, you have to type "fastboot oem unlock". A warning message regarding bootloader unlocking should appear on the device, waiting for an answer. Press the volume+ key and the bootloader is now unlocked! WARNING! ALL DATA ON THE DEVICE IS GONNA BE WIPED, so backup your files before.
    - Wait for the wiping of the device to be finished and then you're ready to install the twrp custom recovery!

    Flashing TWRP 3.0.2-0

    Specific Root for Pixi 4 Plus Power (5023)
    For the Pixi 4 Plus Power (5023), you cannot flash the recovery using the commands below, you have to first boot the recovery with fastboot boot twrp-3.0.3-0-5023.img. Then make a backup of ALL your partitions then you root with this SuperSU. After rooting, reboot to the system and install a root explorer and go to the system partition and remove this file "recovery-from-boot.p". Copy the TWRP recovery (see attached post) to your sdcard/external, install flashify and flash the twrp-3.0.3-0-5023.img to get permanent root.

    - We must be in fastboot mode once again. You can either boot holding power button & vol down while the device is powered off, or type the command in the adb terminal "adb reboot-bootloader" while the device is connected to PC and is booted into Android.
    - Assuming that you are in fastboot mode and the device is connected to the PC, you open an adb terminal and type "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img". Because fastboot is installed system wide you can open a command window from where ever the recovery.img is located and flash it.
    - Congrats! You now have your twrp custom recovery installed.
    - Now if you would like to make a FULL TWRP backup before rooting then kindly do so now, no turning back after this :silly: .


    Rooting with phh's SuperUser

    - Download the zip file from here and copy it your internal storage or external storage.
    - Reboot to TWRP recovery via vol up and power or typing "adb reboot recovery" in the command window.
    - Go to Install, then find where you placed the superuser.zip file, tap on it then swipe to flash it.
    - Reboot your device then install this app. Enjoy root :D

    [GUIDE] Root Alcatel OneTouch Pixi 4 (5'') 5045x

    So here's the steps I used to root the Alcatel OneTouch Pixi 4 (5'') 5045x

    Needed:
    MT6735M_Android_scatter.txt - attached
    CTR 6.6 Recovery - attached
    ChainFire SuperSU - attached
    SmartPhone Flash Tool - http://spflashtool.com/

    Steps:

    0) Copy "SR1-SuperSU-v2.78-SR1-20160915123031.zip" on your SD card for later flashing

    1) Start SP Flash Tool and on "Scatter-loading File" select the MT6735M_Android_scatter.txt you downloaded from here
    2) White and green lines should appear, control that everything is unticked and tick only the "recovery" line
    3) In the "Location" column of the "recovery" line choose "ctr-6.6-5045D-new.img" file. It's INSIDE the zip file here attached, don't flash zip directly!
    4) Press "Download" button
    5) Turn off your phone, pull off the battery and connect it to the PC USB port
    6) Phone should be detected by SPFT, the line at the bottom should become red first and then yellow and in the end a green circle should appear
    7) Now recovery should be flashed! Turn on phone on recovery mode (Power button + Volume UP)
    8) Flash Chainfire SuperSU either using ADB sideload or from SD
    9) REBOOT

    Now you should be rooted! :fingers-crossed:

    Kirito, let me know if something is wrong in this guide. Thanks again for your help! :good:
