    There is no known way to root the Turbo once it's been updated to Marshmallow. It can be rooted before the update and root can be retained. You are on Lollipop and I believe it is still able to be rooted. I will double-check.

    Edit:. SU4TL-44 can be rooted, but I'm not seeing 49.

    Still looking.

    You can root by flashing a rooted image to the phone. I'm still not sure this can be done after 49, but it's worth some additional searching. See:
