Hi there, I managed to successfully root my Mi Box 3 w firmware 1.3.114 . Thought I'd share Tools needed: - Male to Micro USB Female Converter Connector - USB stick Software needed: - Mi image 1.3.106: yadi dot sk/d/Yvr1jYflm6GZR dropbox dot com/s/72x76khqjlpekap/MiBOX3_jurassicpark_gitv_188.8.131.526.zip - Kingo root for windows kingoapp dot com First you will need to downgrade the firmware to version 1.3.106. Extract the contents of the downloaded zip file to a formatted usb tick (Fat32). (Should be two files: xiaomi_update and update.zip) Put the stick in your Mi Box and boot in recovery: unplug power, press and hold back + ok button while plugging the power back in. The remote should be nearby and facing the box. Do not let go of the buttons until it booted in recovery. the flashing should start and finish automatically. After first boot make sure you disable Intelligent Update. Second step is to root your box with Kingo. Enable USB/ADB debugging and reboot (it's right there in the menu under security settings). Install Kingo root on your pc or laptop and connect your box using a micro usb charging cable. This is where you'll need the adapter. Start Kingo Root, follow instructions and choose 'Root again'. This will take a minute... done!
