I have finally rooted this phone. Here is the rooted boot.img uploaded to MediaFire.
Its rooted with Magisk 17.1
Unlock bootloader rename file to boot.img and flash with fastboot.
Awesome! SO is it possible to get more detailed instructions. It's been a few years since i've dont this stuff. My old brain's memory isn't so good.
I just wanted to thank you, I am disabled and dont have alot of income, This phone is my lefeline, I now have it rooted running Magisk 18.0 and TWRP is installed and seems to be working fine, However I would like to ask this. There is an pain in the ass app that seems to be part of the last firmware update this phone had, ( io.appservice.module ) ( Found in data/appi.service.module-1/base.apk
This Kunt sorry for the language, If you uninstall it it is back with every reboot ?
I can disable it to solve the problem but I would like it gone, Any thoughts ?
In developer options click allow OEM unlocking then boot to fastboot mode and use fastboot to unlock bootloader and flash the rooted kernel.
Rename file to boot.img
Unlock bootloader: fastboot oem unlock
Flash kernel: fastboot flash boot boot.img
twrp is not included...

If you are having trouble booting system after installing twrp try wiping data and cache.
The no verity zip should not be needed since kernel was patched with magisk... but if still Having issues booting system try flashing the no verity zip... you can search for it here on xda
Thanks for the info!
In your post, you wrote, "then boot to fastboot mode".
Kindly explain how that is done on this phone. After spending hours, I can't figure it out.
I'm sorry I can remember the button combo... From phone off press and hold vol down and power release power and keep holding vol down... I think fast boot mode is an all black screen or it just has umx logo, can't remember exactly... when you have a fast hooky cmd window open type fastboot devices to see if your phone is connected... if it is not try holding vol up instead of vol down when turning phone on... if vol up don't work try holding both vol buttons. Before this can be done make sure usb debugging is enabled in developer options and authorize your pc when prompted... alternately after you have adb authorized you could use adb cmd "adb reboot bootloader"
If you ned help with adb/fastboot do a quick google search you will find plenty of info and instructions
for me command "Fastboot Continue" would make it continue to load, it did take a while....
if it continues the loop then something went wrong. as i got the infinite bootscreen 1st try.
i just reinstalled the boot image a 2nd time and it worked here's the CRC-32 Hash "a483081b"
Not sure what you mean. You wrote " command "Fastboot Continue" would make it continue to load" Do you mean from the PC command prompt? Do you mean from the phone's recovery menu?
You also wrote " i got the infinite bootscreen 1st try"
I don't know what you mean by "infinite bootscreen"......
Sorry I'm having trouble....ty!
