    This forum has many excellent threads to root the Mi TV 2 running android 4.4. The latest Mi TV 2S runs android 5.0 lollipop and 360root does not seem to work. (sad face instead of the checkmark on each attempt).

    What app would work to root this?

    My main goal is change the system language to english... but all methods require root. Many thanks.

    I have no specific knowledge about MiTV but in other cases root is NOT required to change system language. Install startsettings.apk. Follow the same instructions given for MiBox devices.

    Good luck

    You are absolutely right. startsettings.apk worked like a charm. Thanks so much.

    I'm so disappointed in my internet skills...

    So that got English working, which makes it a bit easier to use... however I think I still need to root it.

    Goals are to install gapps, other root required apps, and eventually use wifi adb.

    Anyone has any ideas -- I will try them! Thanks in advance.
