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.

You may as well root with puppett13th's x8toolbox.

I just rooted my friend's X8 with it.
