    I'm somewhat of a n00b to Android in general, and I would like to know how to root Lollipop. This is mostly to resolve framerate issues with the lack of amcodec in Kodi 17, which, apparently, requires root and chmoding stuff about.

    Only tip I've seen was somebody saying they used ADB to manually root the device, but I've dug around here and through Google and I feel like I'm missing a key word to find a How-To good guide :(

    Please help!

    This is how I rooted the Lollipop Beta & RC, do so at your own risk OK!!

    Download SuperSU here
    Download TWRP here

    - Rename TWRP3_X8H_Plus.img to recovery.img.
    - Put recovery.img & SuperSU-v2.82 onto an SD Card formatted to FAT32
    - Put the SD Card into your Minix and boot to TWRP recovery (same process as stock recovery).
    - Swipe to allow modifications
    - Select Install
    - On the bottom right click "Select Storage"
    - Choose Micro SDCard
    - Select the SuperSU zip in the top left
    - Once flashed select Reboot System
