Hi, great looking ROM, however, can I ask why you have removed root? Is it possible to root at all?

Thanks

i just haven't been able to get it working correctly yet, still learning a lot about the android ROM structure ect... only started this a few months ago as a mission to make my own s905x box usable and actually bearable to use i would ideally like to have it pre rooted with the switch in settings actually working, but so far have been unsuccessful, It is possible to flash magisk with TWRP on my ROM (TWRP IS PRE INSTALLED BOOT WITH TOOTHPICK METHOD)

Sorry ignore my ramblings about recovery, seems my reset button n my 1GB RAM box is flaky, flashed it at least 250 times past few weeks haha,
Sorted now just have to apply extra pressure, as it worked on my 2gb box

Boot into recovery and flash Magisk.zip

Test its installed correctly by running Root checker.apk

Wow, I'll get on that and take a look. Do I just flash it with the Magisk zip when in recovery?

Thanks for the reply.

Thanks for the reply.

Yes just flash with TWRP recovery
never got as far as testing adding root with magisk but yhea seems to work, and my aim is to have it so stable that root is mostly unnesicerry and to make it as user friendly as possible ans will be using my firmware when i set up boxes for people in my area

out of curiosity what are you looking to change aor add?

Do you know what wifi module your box has, you can open the device and check if your not sure OR if you have a working ROM i could attempt to extract drivers & FW

Thanks for your fast reply. I can´t post links in the forum( i am a newbie) with detailed information. In the picture below you can see the board . Perhaps you can idenfify the wifi module. The stock firmware can be found in h96tvbox site.
