Have you actually tried this on an Android One device ?

All I get is this Green spinning circle in the center for KingRoot on my MMX A1.
All the exploits in Framaroot also fail.

On another note , this is not your standard run of the mill MTK 6582 device.
It does not have a preloader and so cannot be flashed or dumped using SPFlash tool.

The bootloader can be unlocked as follows :
Get into fast boot mode by pressing volume up and power at the same time while the phone is switched off.
Then use the volume up button to navigate to fastboot mode and volume down to select.
The following command unlocks the bootloader :
fastboot oem unlock

But make sure you format cache and userdata after doing that otherwise you will get stuck on the boot animation.
fastboot format cache
fastboot format userdata

The recovery is also non existent as you get a fallen robot with some chinese text under it.

I've attached a screen of the partition table according to mtk droid tools.

I have tried all possible methods to root this phone but have been unable to do so.
