    Difficult.... The airplay functionality is the only thing likable in firmware 1.50.1. I'm gonna try to extract the wireless sharing app of the new firmware and copy it to the restored firmware.

    I actually haven't updated to 1.5 yet. Might do that later today to get some learnings of the differences.

    Hi Guys, wondering if someone can help me, I have a MDZ-16-AA firmware 1.4.32 I am trying to root but cannot get into recovery mode, I have tried every button combination, I have removed batteries in the remote to break pairing, I have turned the system off and tried again after many hours, reset to factory, held buttons down for a minute, but nothing.

    I am setting this up as a gift for my parents this Christmas, so hopefully i can figure it out before then, any help would be much appreciated, Thank you!

    You may wish to enlist the help of another set of hands to hold button or plug in power connector.

    I tried to downgrade my MDZ-16-AA device with the MiBOX3_jurassicpark_gitv_1.3.106.386 file ... but it brings it down only to 1. 3. 114 and not to 1. 3. 106.

    Kingroot or Permroot does not work.
    Secondly, I do not get "ADB Debugging" option. Hence I cannot connect my Mi Box to my laptop for rooting.

    Can anyone help ?

    Impossible because it is 1.3.106 firmware. I think you flash wrong firmware.

    hope you matched the color properly when making the cable. make sure the cable is not too long and ADB is enabled in your mi box

    Hi San_7... I have been through this procedure.
    But when I tried to downgrade my MDZ-16-AA device with the MiBOX3_jurassicpark_gitv_1.3.106.386 file ... it brings it down only to 1. 3. 114 and not to 1. 3. 106.
    Secondly I do not get "ADB Debugging" option in version 1. 3. 114. Hence I cannot connect my Mi Box to my laptop.
    Can you help ?

    Hey guys...
    I just bought Xiaomi MiBox 3c (MDZ-16-AA)
    It was running 1.5.1 firmware but I successfully downgraded it to 1.3.106 as described in this thread.

    I then connected it to the PC (one of them being a VM running Win10 and the other one I tried is Windows 7 Laptop). Installed the drivers and started KingRoot. KingRoot tried to install some application on the MiBox and I confirmed using the remote so it successfully installed it (something like KRhelper4pc )
    Unfortunately KingRoot is in chinese and I can't see what it says but it fails to root my device.
    I also tried KingO root which is in english but it crashes when I run it... it says "Connecting... Please enable USB Debugging mode" and then crashes... tried it on 2 computers

    Any Ideas ?

    I don't think It should happen, as I downgraded mine from 1.4.52( latest) to 106. If you are downgrading using a usb drive and booting into recovery it should work fine .

    P.S. Today KingO root finally worked and I managed to root & flash the device. Works like a Charm! :) Thank you for the thread
