Alcatel A460G Rooting Trouble - a lost cause.

I've totally given up on this & explain in my last post, below.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To start with I wish to say a few things to be as clear as possible:
I have been visiting here for a couple of years already, but never registered because frankly - I was intimidated. I am not a dev, or a coder - I am merely a guy who enjoys tinkering a bit - and I have discovered how much fun cheap Android devices can be.

Lately a chain store has an Alcatel One Touch Pixi Pulsar A460G (TCL) from tracfone.
It has a nice 4" screen, Android 4.4.2 and better specs than my LG L34C - so I got it.

Searched extensively and the closest info I found was here at this link:


It seemed to root with Kingo Root - but only temporarily and its Superuser doesn't work very well at all.
Even tried the method here - but it starts & never completes:


I really want to root this phone and would be happy even if I must use the app to re-install V4.3 from here:


Also, there is a great bit of info posted here with a de-bloated stock ROM & recovery - but how can I flash it if it will not fully root and/or SU does not work ??
It seems most likely this phone has its bootloader locked by tracfone, and that maybe it is what stops it from rooting - but I do not know enough to be sure.

Any pointers to good help will be hugely appreciated.

Thanks.
