Seems that the non upgraded facebook app on them is now giving issues, and I cant upgrade it without storage available.

Only thing we can do is pressure 2DegreesMobile to release us from the useless trial version of the office productive app that hog the precious memory...

Shame that they preloaded all that junk so it cannot be moved to the spacious SD card. And as it is a total unknown to the rest of the world I am not holding out hope. I cant believe they are still selling it to be honest.

Make sure you backup first.....

What version of Android is it running?
Maybe able to target a particular vulnerability in that version to gain root.

If it's running Android 2.3 or lower you could try superoneclick. Provided you can get adb drivers installed it's worked on almost everything I've tried it with so far.

Superoneclick fails at step 7.

Will have a read on the other thing and give that a shot soon.

I've tried all possibility to root it, none is working. So I am just leaving the stupid limited device as paper weight. And boycotting 2Degrees Mobile on continuing selling a very limited device that is not fit for usage.
