So after spending over a week trying to fix this I have to admit defeat.
It's a shame as I really thought the Volla phone would be the phone that I could experiment with alternative OS's.
If anyone is considering this phone as a tool to test linux based os systems then I would have to warn them not to buy this.
The UBPorts installer does not work correctly and will more than likely brick your system.
I have flashed many phones and ran a variety of either de-googled or linux based os's on many different phones, but this has been the most difficult and the one that finally defeated me.
I tried flashing this from both linux and windows, on linux the drivers would just keep disconnecting so it wouldn't flash, and on windows the driver files just wouldn't connect.
