I've bought a USB -> UART cable for 50 cents, some connector pins for 5 cents and that's all I needed. It took me 10mins to take the mini apart, make the connection with the pins and the cable, get the uart terminal app and send the commands.
I assure you, there are UART USB cables all over the world.
It's actually even simpler and faster than rooting Android phones from 2010. These were hard to root.
/dev/tty.usbserial 115200 mount -o rw,remount / mount -o rw,remount /system mkdir /tmp cd /system/bin ln -s busybox-smp unzip cd /data/local/tmp cp /mnt/usbhost/Storage01/UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.46.zip /data/local/tmp [COLOR="Red"]<- Double check zip's file name and try Storage02 if Storage01 does not work because it depends on which usb port you plug the flash drive in. [/COLOR] cp /mnt/usbhost/Storage01/update-binary /data/local/tmp cd /data/local/tmp sh update-binary 0 1 /data/local/tmp/UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.46.zip reboot
No it is not a joke, no it will not get easier. Jide made it clear they will not support rooting. The amount of support available is minimal so this is the way. Difficult not if you have done stuff like this before ( FTA satellite. Etc.) kingoroot and all other software has been proven NOT to work. Hardware hacking is the only way so far..
Hi honestly I had never heard of your box. I am not sure if you can use the same software etc. If you could communicate with the box you should be able to hack it. That being said depending on cost you may want to leave it to someone with experience! Remix was 50 bucks so no big risk for me.
