Rooting a mediatek mt6580 massive trouble.

Hey guys and gals, this may sound like an eye rollingly noobish post but honestly ive never had more trouble rooting an android device in my life! so I just got one of these:

youve probably seen them floating around Aliexpress and the like, not a bad tablet but should go for less than $100 due to build quality, but moving on,

so its a Mediatek MT6580 chipset and the model is BXMC-K107

ive been trying to root this thing all day, I managed to unlock the bootloader with adb, however any attempt to root with any of the programs like kingroot, root genius, iroot etc have all failed, absolutely no luck with any of them, i tried the manual root method but couldnt get nautilus to work with my VM ubuntu install through virtual box, I will try again with a proper installed linux distro rather than vm but I cant see it making much difference.

I also used the main program people use for Mediatek devices (MTK droid tool) however when I open it, I get this error after it reads the tablet:

trying to root gives me this:

cant create any backups, cant use any program to root, and cannot figure out where to go from here,

any help would be much appreciated!
