OK Thanks for that, yeah I've use things like ftvlaunchx (newer launcher hijack) before. I bought this box accidently but I suppose I can use it as a legit device for the living room as every other device I have is rooted and tweaked to the maximum.
But I have my eye on the ugoos AM6 Pro S922XJ. Apologies for drifting off topic mods.
But as the devices get newer and Android progresses its getting way harder to obtain even minimal root.
