kernel would be needed but also device information...and some others file(s) like init.rc
can you provide kernel, stock boot.img(or working custom boot.img) ...might be needed some part of official recovery .
What is device resolution?
you can pm me if you want, i can try to compile Twrp for you...
i don't own the device so you will be on your own to push recovery in device and test it.

Hey @desalesouche and @modifhigher did you guys get anything working? I just got my hands on one of these phones, is there any way I could help?

Rootgenius didn't work for me either.
Too lazy to try others also worried after report of update bricking.
I basically got is for free so I would have bathtub phone but grew to like it.

this noob needs help
I bought the hydo icon a few weeks ago and I have been doing my best to find out how to go about rooting. I am nervous because it is my only phone and I've only successfully rooted one other phone. The more i read the more confused i seem to be. Can someone please help me?
