Generally speaking, outside of China (in a market the phone isn't natively sold) it's hard to find accessories. When I had my MUCH i5, I used PSP / PS Vita cases instead, they seem to generally fit. Try your local Gamestop or Walmart if US/CA based and see if they fit.

Have you tried using Kingroot? It's a desktop application I used for rooting the W3D. The downside is that it installs Kinguser instead of SuperSU, which may not be as robust as SuperSU, but it does give root access. At least enough to flash a gapps package.

You should be able to find the latest gapps package from a good search. A gapps package is a compilation of Google apps that normally are installed on android deivces, which include Playstore among others.

Not an official method, but it's what I would try. As with anything, be careful, proceed cautiously, and read everything. Good luck!

Please note that I recommend Kingroot due to my experience with past Snail devices, 78P01/W1 and W3D. The program successfully rooted both devices. I do not guarantee this program to root your device, or not cause adverse effects. While it is highly unlikely something will happen to your device, I'm only protecting myself from being hated if something does happen, lol. Proceed at your own risk.

Oh I see. If those apps didn't work, I don't know. You may still be able to sideload gapps in the android recovery, but I don't know all the steps. Maybe the steps to root the W3D may work, but I'm only guessing at this point. To truly root would require adb access and allowing super user access to the device through terminal commands, but that goes beyond my knowledge.

There may be someone on the Snail forums that may have posted a method, but you'd need to translate the forums conversation, so information might be a bit scattered. It's gonna take some searching, and lots of trial and error. Good luck!

Also, maybe even finding a phone with similar hardware and software that has a root method. That method may work on your device, perhaps with some tweaking. As always proceed with caution.
