    So I just ordered the Mi Box Mini from the Xiaomi store for Feb 3rd. I am wondering if anyone else has done the same?

    What do you plan on doing with it? Root? What apps are you going to install for live TV etc.?

    Yeah I hope it's possible to translate into English, otherwise I won't be able to understand how to use it.

    I jus checked out the Cloud TV app which is around 6.99USD a month and gives you a lot of channels to stream live. IS there any other methods to watch live TV perhaps for free?

    has anyone received this?

    I missed the pre order slot online so I didn't end up buying it from the Xiaomi site, they are sold out.

    I ordered one from Tmall although I am not 100% sure if it's real.. What should I look out for?

    Just got it directly from China. Been stuck rooting it for like 1 week. Everything's great... until I get this device rooted.

    I've just received my MiBox Mini yesterday. Bought on Ali... which is cool , but it came in Chinese only :(
    Hopefully, I've found a couple of YouTube videos on How To Upload apks on it, and how to change the language to English.
    This is totally functional, so far.
    One video show how to upload Google Services and Store aso... ok, done, but this ain't working, probably because they are installed as 'normal' applications, not 'system'...
    So, my next step is "Root"!

    Q: does anyone try to root it so far?
    I ain't much time last night to try it, but i'll probably try FramRoot (afterall, it's an MTK device...)
    Any suggestions welcome.

    I don't know... maybe because of the port 5555 or something. Guess we should wait for Chinese to root it first.

    Hello guys,
    I've on Mi Box mini from yesterday, stayed late at night but couldn't root neithter run the Google play services. If anyone reaches to do that please help, because I like that little thing very much and only Play Store is missing for perfect joy.
