Weird thing is... I have no update showing, it keeps saying latest software installed (no sim installed so that may be it), I have had the phone for 3 months now, it is not used as a line, just a tinker phone.
But i see the oreo update kills fastboot, so not doing it. Also the cricket owned version x210cm is (as is cricket) owned by At&T... not friendly to root at all on anything.
I guess my next move is gonna be either attempting to flash a pre rooted rom via pc, or a shady one click root apk...? I have 2 of these not used so I kinda don't mind possibly bricking one in the name of science.
