    is there a jellybean rom available for that phone if so then there should be rooting information as well and a Custom Recovery and Kernel. we have not really found much on that device yet.

    There's not even a recovery for this phone. It can be rooted but it's touchy. I've bricked mine 3 times messing with the ROM. I don't think I can get away with sending it in again, in seriously thinking about selling it. On the benchmarks my PROCLAIM totally blows it away. Every time I brick it, out says secure boot unsuccessful..cause error:logo. It may need a bootstrap fix.

    google "SRSROOT"...that's the program to root this phone. You should be able to find a page with the download link and the instructions.
