Let's work together to get the device rooted! :D

My early discoveries...

- You can enter what seems to be the bootloader by powering on with 'camera' held down, however fastboot doesn't see the device
- ADB doesn't see the device by default, you have to edit adb_usb.ini in ~/android/ and add the line '0x0502', then it works after restarting the adb server
- asroot2 doesn't work
- instantroot.apk doesn't work

Anything to add peoples? :(

OK, so i've got fastboot to see the device by doing the following (which is just trying to flash any old boot.img)...

'fastboot -i 0x0502 boot boot.img'

It looks like it's a locked bootloader as that fails. :D

To enter recovery, turn device on with camera and volume down pressed. When you release, device will boot to recovery.

Not sure the bootloader is security locked now, just need to make a boot.img that'll work! :D
