Yes you can use this method for Xolo Play 6x-1000.
This rooting method is bit complex one than other methods. So I strongly recommend you to go for a backup before starting anything.

Check if at least you can access to your bootloader and recovery or not???

If at least you can enter into the recovery then go to the below link and update lollipop ROM for your device:

I think the ROM is gone. The phone is unable to find the system partition.

Here you can get the stock ROM from the below site:
