Question [SOLVED] Need to root Blu Dash 3.5 D161a (Android 4.2.2)

So I'm finding a number of projects on hold as I need to root my phone to proceed.

I've found threads about rooting the Blu Dash 3.5 but they all refer to the D170 which is an older phone (dual sim version of the D160) but nothing mentioning the D161 or D171 varieties.

My phone is running Jelly Bean 4.2.2

I keep reading that I'll need a restore image for my phone but can't find one and it seems to extract my own I first need to have rooted the phone which seems to create a bit of a catch 22.

I could root using an image for the D170 but I suspect I'd been opening up a whole can of worms an weeks of pain.

Does anyone have a D161a rooted and able to tell me how or send me a image?

I've got ADB running and seeing my device. I can boot into fastboot mode.

Sigmakey software works with and requires a special hardware device and is used to do carrier unlock on phones. That's not what I need.

Got my Blu Dash 3.5 D161a rooted using Kingo Android Root (v1.2.2 i think) download via cnet from link from Kingoapp.com website,

It took quite a while but was a painless one-click solution.

Now I am rooted I'll see if I can upload the stock system and recovery images somewhere (suggestions welcome).
