Cry Acer liquid z2 (z120) single sim root help

Ok not been on here a while!!!!!!
Ive rooted a few phones and tablets in the past and i found them all easy as hell, now however im stuck using an ACER LIQUID Z2 (single sim) and cant find how to root it for love nor money. One click soloutions do not work and the extremely rare occasion ive found a thread somewere on tinternet ive been far to cautious to use due to to many brickings by users!!!!!!!!

As im only using this phone as a temporary phone i wasnt bothered about rooting but ive actually come to like it, so much so im keeping it for the time being (if it works well cheaply, stuff the upgrade)
The only problem ive come across is NO-ONE seems to have a root guide/any knowledge of how to root this phone.

This phone is a budget smartphone and i dont see a huge demand for it so devs may simply not bother with it, but to be fair its a decent tidy phone that does what i need, im sick to death of google services updates ripping the hell out my precious storage space. So all though i have no interest in flashing a new rom i simply want root access to move the ever more and more rubbish over to sd card/delete unneeded to free up space for my beloved apps.

If anyone knows of any other way i can move pre installed apps/services to sd without the need to root (considering this is a jelly bean 4.1.1 os) i would love to be enlightened. Im no expert or android pro but im an ace with google and i cant find anything helpful

thanks to all that have taken their time to read this id appreciate any help

Have you looked into how to root a phone using adb, as opposed to running some script that some developer may have gotten right (or wrong)?

ive seen some info regarding adb and sdk rooting. Seemed more complicated than some of the other ways ive done it. And the one click root is definitely a no go. think ive tried them all now. Ive downloaded official sdk but it wont open. so think I need to figure out why first before I can even manually root anyway. Ive found the guides for manually rooting slightly confusing also. I check for some IDIOTS GUIDES
