    I have tried using a few different apps/programs to root it using an exploit, but none of them worked. There doesn't appear to be a guide or anything for this phone to get rooted, so is it even possible?

    Hi mate, Why would you like to root it? In order to remove some per-installed apps?

    I am also trying to root it as i have applications that require root permissions to work and secondly, i would like to start some minor work on releasing files such as the Scatter File and stock ROM for this device so that others, who are more adept, may create a custom ROM etc.

    In order for there to be a method of rooting a phone, some developer who knows how to root an Android phone in general, who has the particular phone, and who has the time to experiment, has to come up with some method - it's not only different for each phone, it's also different for each version of Android.

    The chances of finding a root method for an old, limited spec phone (and the Konka R8A is such a phone) are virtually nil.

    I think Rukbat's comment above yours is the most likely explanation.

    As for your use of Kingroot, I would suggest researching how to remove all traces of it, as it installs adware and malware onto your phone that is apparently tricky to remove. You can read more about it here.
