GV-21 -> Rooting / Installing Linux

I'm sorry if this has been posted already or a solution has been found but Google has offered me no solution.

I am trying to install Linux / Ubuntu to the GV-21 Mini PC (seen http://www.dhgate.com/mini-pc-.....c20ee.html) through the MicroSD card slot. I have had no success in reaching the bootloader screen in order to even try to boot from the MicroSD card slot. The GV-21 comes with Android installed so I tried to root it but have had no success with rooting it. I've tried directions using SuperOneClick and other methods on the internet with no success. So I have not been able to access the bootloader screen in any way. I've also checked to see if I could boot from a bootable USB but again can not reach the bootloader screen and Android is started immediately.

Does anyone know how I can run Linux on the GV-21? Maybe directions to Root it and access the bootloader screen? Any suggestions? Thanks.

I spent $63 on a MK808 along with a RC12 a few weeks ago on marcmart.com. As far, it is the cheapest and best Android Google TV box I can serched online. I would like to recommand to anyone as it charges no shipping cost! Good product!
