I was wondering what is the whole point? What sources would be available? Is there any info scraper for local movies and TV Shows? I mean what would be the whole point of it? I think it would be nice if it is possible to install openelec on it that would become a great mediacenter, but with just transaltion what would we will be watching on it? Thanks for all the work you put on the whole MIUI but i cant understand what options we would have on this MI-Box. Regards!

With root you can literally install everything. The underlying system is still Android 4.x. There are tutorials how to install xbmc even without root, but it's only a matter of time if we have google play on it.. I'm sure sooner or latter there will be optional rooms such CM to be installed on this box. We just need the root and this box needs to be spread outside of China. Together with english translation we will have full streaming media box with all possibilities of android tablets for reasonable price. This will have a big potential, we just need to be patient. And that's the reason why I've ordered it yesterday ;-) So MarkHUK, keep up the good work with this! Best

Thanks! we're working with *******.com to potentially sell pre-rooted boxes to save people the hassle. What it does mean is no more OTA update for now when you have ROOT.

I can only say as demonstrated I managed to ROOT V1.2 but I believe my 1.1.11 partition had a part to play in the process so far.

Please people, let us know if you obtain ROOT using one of the two methods in the main Mi Box forum.

Thanks for the support so far! :)

I will let you know as soon as I get the box. I should have it within a week. I've ordered from ******* yesterday and they should send it tomorrow. Curious if this will be pre-rooted and the version this will have. Hopefully I will be able to root it with just software hack. Would it be possible to replace that Chinese youtube app with an english one? At the beginning I need the box primary for youtube but with Chinese youtube no way :) Btw, did you try to install gaps with google play on it? I would help you with translation but I can't say a word in Chinese :) But I could translate from English to Slovak later on ;) we will made it multilingual! :)

I installed google play but need to install other gapps parts to give it a shot. Will let you know how it goes. Also wont come pre rooted but would advise you dont connect to the internet with it at all by cable or wifi.

Check which version you are running then follow method 2 of the rooting guide.

Good luck.

Thanks for hint, I will do like you said. How can I find that the device is really rooted ? So from as far I have read, both versions 1.1 and 1.2 should be rootable with method 2, right? Thx.
