    It's an obscure device so this is a long shot, but does anyone know how to flash the Tuvva Elemental or at least root it? Kingo and the CyanogenMod installer both detect it as an international Galaxy S II, and the specs are pretty similar: Cortex A9, Mali-400, 1GB RAM, and both top out at Android 4.1. If I hook it up to a computer, it's detected but drivers aren't found. I've tried swapping in Samsung's drivers and the drivers from the Android SDK, but the Android Debug Bridge still doesn't recognize it as connected.

    Yeh it's some obscure thing. Detecting it as a Samsung S2 is obviously wrong, and Samsung drivers won't work because because it's not a Samsung. For rooting to be successful, the rooting tool has to correctly identify the device and know what exploit to apply. Because it either just won't work at all, or much worse could irreparably damage the device's ROM, rendering it bricked and unusable. Kingo can root many different devices, but if you got something it doesn't know about and can't correctly detect it, it's not going to work.
