    i would love to help you but:
    1.your phone is one i never had heard of before.

    2.being that is of the less common phones, i do not think that the devs have worked on it to find an exploit.

    3.an exploit is needed to root your device. without one then you will need to find one in order to gain root access.

    4.from what i can find on the net, there is no way to root it.

    5.what android os is it running? gingerbread? ics? if it is gingerbread, you might try the gingerbreak exploit. do a google search for it. i can't guarantee that it will work.

    6.for me i always do some research first and see what devices can be rooted and what kind of dev support will it have before i buy the phone. no dev support=me no get this device.

    sorry but like i said i have not seen anything for your device. even if there was a way to root it, there is no rom development. you will not be able to flash custom roms so i really do not see the point in rooting your device any ways.

    i have seen that you have scoured the net as well with other similar posts with no such luck. i wish that i had better news for you.

    good luck

    thanks for the comments.. I appreciate those... :)

    Just to assert:

    I want to root my device not for the ROM devs but for me to have full access on the features of my phone.. I don't give a damn whether there will be rom devs or not..

    :p
