Question [Q] Allview X2 Soul - how to root

Hello

Can you please help me with rooting instructions/tools for Allview X2 Soul (same phone as Gionee Elife S5.5)
I tried no. of rooting tools but it didnt work, tools that had succes on Gionee Elife S5.5 phones.

Model : ALLVIEW X2_Soul
Android : 4.2.2
Kernel : 3.4.39
Build: [SW VERSION] X2_Soul_0401_V5448 ; [HW VERSION] X2_Soul_Mainboard_P4

After successfull root I would apreciate instructions to install CWM and Custom Rom based on 4.4.2 Android, or even Gionee 4.4.2 official release.

Thank you !

Hello my friends

First of all I would like to thank each and every one of you for helping me out. NOT !
YES, it was a NOT joke.

For all of you who have an Allview X2 Soul phone and wish to have root access, please use the software found here (shuame.com/root/?rootjl_client) . Unfortunately only the chinese version works on this Allview phone, even if it is aparently the same with Gionee Elife S5.5 (chinese ver is at 2.0.1.3 while english ver is at 1.8.7) .
You use it a bit blind ... you have to install ADV drivers, open PC software downloaded from the link above, connect the phone to the PC with debugging option enabled and pres ROOT button (it is surrounded by chinese characters but it has ROOT word written somwhere inside the characters). In approx 40 seconds the phone is rooted.

Best regards !

I'm happy for you that you updated your phone to 4.4.2. Great job !!! Now, I believe that you noticed that I gave the solution for 4.2.2 and I had NO problems with malware and/or any other BS since I have and use BitDefender and it didn't warn me about anything.

Anyway I allso updated to 4.4.2 and the solution mentioned above DOES NOT WORK. It worked only on 4.2.2
