    I've been searching for a method myself. The phone has been out for a while and still no method to root as far as I know. We need to get some of these awesome developers on it :D

    It will probably go as far as involving OEM unlock in developer options and supposedly it unlocks the boot loader. But until there is a working rooted ROM to flash..
    I should read more about that OEM unlock feature. I'm sure it could be the gateway to future phone rooting

    Root successful. No recovery. Quite simple....

    Download ADB Drivers and ADB Shell set up to PC.
    Install on PC with Admin privileges
    Download latest version Kingo Root to PC
    Connect device to PC via USB
    Turn on device.
    Enable USB debugging
    Enter Command Prompt (Admin Privileges)
    Exactly.....

    adb devices
    [enter]
    adb reboot disemmcwp
    [enter]
    Phone will reboot with extra write privileges

    Right click on Kingo Root and Run as Administrator.
    Wait bout 5 min for the magic to happen.

    Links at bottom for Drivers, Shell, and Kingo Root

    It was tricky switching to super su. But this worked fine for me after trial.
    I simply uninstalled Kingo user then installed super su and updated binary normal. Boom. I'm still holding down root. Over clocked kernel and all. All the credit to ....
