I will try to explain how to root the MiBox.

I used:
Download the VRoot an connect the mibox to the pc.
First Screen when you install the application

When the Phone / MiBox is connected the button to root is enabled

Process to Root

Success Message

Take in account that when an application requieres root you will see a request in the MiBox to allow or deny the access. Buttons in the TV:
Left Button - Deny Access
Right Button - Allow Access.

So if you wan to allow the access in the remote control press: Down Button and then Right Button
So if you wan to deny the access in the remote control press: Down Button.

I wrote the steps with screenshots in: http://en.miui.com/thread-6917-1-1.html

I don't think so, any way the Windows application allow you to unroot, so the apk will be unistalled and restore the system as it was before.
It's a reversible process. I will check it in the next update...

thank you for confirm working
i have seen this in the chinese forums posted couple weeks ago
question is does it break future updates?

I can update to 1.3.1 and the root still works (if you have it already installed). I suppose that the method still working with this version 1.3.1 but I didn't check it

I found some problems when the system is updated. Is like the system is unrooted

I reinstall the Root and continue working well.

There is a way to disable the automatic updates?
