Default [HELP] How to Root MyPhone A858

I've got this new MyPhone A858 Duo, a dual-sim phone with 1Ghz processor from the Philippines.
I've tried rooting it using SuperOneClick 2.3.3.0, UnlockRoot 2.3.1 and Gingerbreak, but it seems that all failed in rooting this new android phone.

Any idea how to root this phone will be greatly appreciated.

TIA

I've heard this works for other people. With my phone it doesn't. When I plug it in, it doesn't show an unknown device. I've already downloaded and installed MT65xx Preloader and tried out a VCom, but still nothing. I've been going at it for a week, so if anyone's got an answer, advice would be great. Thanks!

Default Error # 16008

A message came out,
"EBOOT ERROR (16008), [Android] Partition size changed!

[HINT]:
Partial images download error.
The following partitions must be downloaded FULL altogether."

I followed all the steps (and the links) up until I clicked the 'Download' button. :/ When I click download button, that message shows.
I have: My Phone A858, Android 2.3.2 (Gingerbread), Sony Vaio with a Windows 7. Thanks!
