Is there already any way to get root on this particular model? (MT6580 chipset running 6.0 Marshmallow)

All the usual applications (Kingroot, etc.) don't seem to work.

Thanks!

Doesn't work unfortunately, goes up to 90% and then displays an error message. I managed to unlock the bootloader btw. Do you maybe know about a custom recovery available for this model?

Managed to do it :) Unlocked the bootloader, used fastboot to flash a ported TWRP from a similar MT6580 device and then installed SuperSU. Send me a message if you want the custom recovery file.
