Our cousins of GizChina.es are currently testing the Xiaomi Mi Tv, the Xiaomi smart Android TV. After spending a little time together, they managed to run the root. Here's how it went!
The Xiaomi Mi Tv is an Android smart TV with an obviously customized firmware version and that with poco time it is even possible to access the ROOT permissions. Although at the moment the guides are all in Chinese, Eduardo of GizChina.es has managed to make one in English of which we are now bringing you a copy in Italian.
Download the Xiaomi Mi Tv - Root package at the following link
- download Xiaomi Mi Tv Root.
Note: When Eduardo of GizChina.es ran the program, his Anti Virus presented him as a Virus. He managed to run it smoothly, but Root is a procedure at the risk of a user who, remember, invalidates the warranty.
Xiaomi Mi Tv - How to Run the Root
To complete the root process you will need a Windows PC with Adb and Fastboot installed and connected to the network (if you do not, you can download them from here) and also Mi TV connected. Once the TV is connected, mark the IP address, because it will be useful later.
1 ° Step: Enable Adb
On the main screen, go to the first of the small icons, the one with the image of 'gear.
After that, we click on the last option shield with the star. There are several Chinese 3 options, but as it is easy to see in the middle there is the word "Adb": with the remote control we change the present option (with the directional keys) by setting it as shown below:
Eduardo recommends changing and resetting the setting even if it was already set in the correct entry.
2 ° Step: Launch program
Unzip and run the “Root-Xiaomi-MiTV.exe” file. A blue screen will appear on the screen of which you will probably not understand anything (only symbols) but the application is simply asking for the IP address (the one we had initially marked). After that, hit Enter and if Error appears, something like this will appear:
If it is all right, this is the result.
3 ° Step: Shutdown and Test
If all goes well, we can turn off and turn on the TV and set off and then again On Adb (maybe not necessary but RECOMMENDED).
In the PC we can finally perform "cmd.exe"To run msdos and write:
- adb connect
192.168.1.47 (Change the IP address with yours. If all goes ok you will see "connected to ...")
- adb shell (we will see Android "prompt")
- on (if the process is correct you will see "#" error-free)

That is all for the moment. We hope Eduardo and GizChina.es friends continue to do a great job with this Xiaomi Mi Tv.
