    I don't have this device. Has anyone tried this ?


    The first thing that is needed is a recovery.
    "Trying" stuff without one will make you a bricklayer. The Rooting part comes 2nd. If you wanna gamble with your phone at least learn information that can help you and others. Not trying to tell anyone what to do with their stuff . There is a method and a process to this . BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY.

    We need to find phones with similar specs, also see if they are rootable, try their methods of rooting to tinker with, and then see about rom development. Someone needs to man the gun on building a recovery.img, preferably someone with experience or is wanting to learn how to and is dedicated without giving up on the first 10 tries. Twrp has done fairly well on porting and building (so ive been told) my favorite recovery has been philz touch recovery. Im not bossing people around or anything. Im just straightening up the lines on getting our phone to the point where we want it. Some may just want root and recovery. Some may want roms. Im willing to help find root but we do need a recovery like it has been stated by people in previous posts. I have access to a pc to try those methods of root but ive never built recoveries nor built roms because i lack knowledge and the pc power to produce those things. With all said, lets start a team amd get things going.
