have you tried rooting using kingroot latest version?
BTW dump your phone's firmware in scatter file format using the guide @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-13347.html

If rooting Apps didn't work for you then you will need to root via custom recovery, and for that you have to provide the stock recovery.img or dump the ROM in scatter format to get the recovery.bin that's why you were given the link to dump the ROM. Check the link from @xenon reply.

Upload recovery.bin and scatter file from the backup folder to google drive and drop the link here.

We already ported custom recoveries for your Build @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-15798.html
Download one of them and rename from recovery.img to recovery.bin
After that, follow the guide @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-16879.html
Upload a screenshot of root verification using root checker @ https://play.google.com/store/apps/detai...heck&hl=en
