Did you use the latest version of superoneclick ? Try different versions , and see.

Still if you can't root , then
I don't know but maybe the X8toolbox may help.
Although I do NOT know for sure if it will or will not work. You can try.

@bosky_itsme
You only can flash a kernel If u have unlocked your bootloader.

There is a guideline for how to use flashtool to Flash roms, kernel..etc
Search in General Section.
For your WiFi problem,
flash your rom again or do a factory reset. If it wouldn't solved the problem, see for the bugs GDX v21b thread.

Good Luck to you.

@OP
Have you installed the drivers?
If even superoneclick (latest) doesn't work for you, then try to use X8toolbox or Flashtool

Good Luck.
