To root can't you just unlock bootloader.

Download superSU to /storage

http://download.chainfire.eu/372/Sup...erSU-v1.86.zip

Then download CWM and boot recovery (don't even need to flash it) using the following (apologies if syntax not 100%, I'm not at my laptop to check)

fastboot boot recovery cwmrecovery.img

Then just flash superSU via CWM.

You don't really need any special rooting 'tool'. Its just basic stuff.

I know that for booting simply recovery it s not need unlock bootloader. Only for boot recovery obviously, not flashing it permanently.

Tried both flashing CWM and just straight booting it and it just restarts the phone and doesn't boot into recovery. Also tried TWRP same results.
