Hello, for unpopular tv boxes there are no modified recovery and roms, but you can install apps from downloading from internet browser, in settings go to security press install from unknown sources agree if it asks then you can install apks, if you want to free out memory and remove useless software you have to download kingo root from here: https://root-apk.kingoapp.com/kingoroot-download.htm
install it then open connect an wired/wireless mouse then press get root, wait for it to get rooted. If it is stuck in 90% press back button on the remote, it will show an error that the device didnt root, just exit the app delete it through settings-apps then power off and then power on then the supersu app will work, open it find apps option, then select the apps which you dont need.
