Let x = ((t^4)1)^( 1/4) Bring it back into the integal. This leads to an integral easy to express in terms of usual functions.

Your transformation is not completed yet because there is still (x^4) remainings at denominator. No x must remain in the integral. This is an integral with only t.

It remains only to find the primitives of tē/((t^4)1), which is not too difficult.
