    Hi there MINIX team,

    I've been searching quite some time for a rooted firmware for X8 (not X8-H) but I had no luck finding it.
    I know I can easily use the ROOT-update-zip file, but I need to root many MINIX devices and its very time consuming to do this for every device.
    Can someone please help with a rooted firmware? I will pay for it, just tell me the costs.

    Thank you so much!

    Minix won't ever provide an official rooted firmware. You'll need someone to create a custom firmware if you want it pre-rooted.

    BTW the X8-H (not plus) and X8 use the same firmware.

    does not work, what I do is put the file on a USB root then entered the bootloader and install, the boot after the apk not me nor the root appears, do not understand why it does not work if the firmware worked 004
