Hardware ID change - Neo U1

    I have a U1 and when I install a streaming app called DSTV NOW - I get a warning from the provider saying that my hardware ID has already been assigned to another account.

    This is the case with other minix users aswell who are trying to stream DSTV (satellite Tv Provider) so I can only assume the way around this would be to change the hardware ID of the minix.

    From what I have read the only way to change the ID is to root the device... but tried ezroot and my minix is stuck on the flashing MINIX log and doesn't do anything.. So I need to reflash it with the original firmware.

    Does anyone know how to change the hardware ID? If rooting is the only way, please provide a working version to root U1 as I followed the instructions to the T and did not get it to work. ;(

    From what I have read in other posts there is the option to contact DSTV support via the app to get the ID registered.
