Could somebody please point me in the right direction, to root their devices? Many Thanks. Rob.
There isn't a "one-click" way to do it and probably there won't be. The easiest way to do it is to take the back off the Vox, remove the internal SD Card, make changes to the filesystem and put it all back together again. This requires enough knowledge of Linux filesystems to be able to mount and copy files to different partitions of the SD Card. Since this involves a real risk of damaging your Vox and I'm assuming that "limited intelligence" actually means "limited knowledge of computer hardware", I'd suggest that it might not be worth doing in your case (especially since the last Vox update included Google Play).
If you want to try, though, I'll help if I can.
