Default [Q] Confused about build numbers?

Might sound a bit silly, but I'm trying to root my G3, but I don't even know if the software and device is supported? I'm in the UK, but the build number ends in 589 (not 10xx) so I'm confused as to whether it would work safely?

Well, see the software version and not build number. You should have V10x...
