Default Rooting MTK6575 N8000?

I got a new N8000 in China, and was going to root it, but... how?
As I see it, superoneclick freezes at step 7, so I gave up on that.
Then I tried using the Motofail one, but it said that /System/ was a read only file, how can I change that? Help would be REALLLLY appreciated. Thanks in advance!

(P.S. First post, forgive mistakes pls)
Cheers,

I am watching this with interest. I also have the Star N8000. I find the Wifi poor and would love to root it. Reading the XDA post blows my head as I don't really know what they are on about. Most of the post refers to a different phone.

Thanks for taking the time to reply.
I think that I have the correct file downloaded to my computer, it is "MTK6575_ADB_Root.rar". Only problem is that I don't know what to do with it now!
Should I move it to the phones sd card and do something with it?

Try to extract/unzip it...rar is a Winrar file. Will take a look when I fire up the laptop in a minute
