So I managed to get access to the port without removing the opaque screen protector
Which I'm pretty sure is the only sealed aspect of the packaging so I decided to have a go and see if I could get any further than others.

Next up I tried the rupor-rescue.7z sd card
Along with "um recovery" the unit did restart and spun around for a while then just booted back up as normal. Does this mean that it the recovery firmware had a bad checksum/encryption and couldn't be launched or something? It should also be noted that without the sd card even inserted it did the exact same thing on the screen. I believe it was supposed to attempt to connect to the computer and install serial comms devices along with other usb storage devices.

As one might expect based on the above output and the fact windows didn't try to install any devices, this unit doesn't know what to do with the rupor-rescue image. I'm going to box the unit back up for now. But if anyone has any ideas to try I'll try again in a couple of days. One final idea I had was I would be willing to pay for shipping the unit to and from Boroda if he would be interested in having a go at rooting it. Otherwise I'll try and return it some time next week.
