    FW13 installed. Flashed or updated ...
    -Power off (disconnect the power cord)...

    -TWRP recovery .img file (ver. 3.0.2-0 by AbduL ) ... rename to "recovery.img" and copy to your sd card in root directory.

    -Insert the sd card into the device;
    -Connect the power cord, then press and hold power button until TWRP recovery appears on screen ...
    -Flash TWRP recovery on minix:
    -> Press the button: Install -> Select Storage: Micro SDCard -> Press the button: Install Image -> Select: recovery.img -> Select: recovery partition ... SWIPE TO FLASH.
    -After script show is DONE:
    -Home (go to main screen) -> Reboot -> System (this will install SuperSU!), SWIPE TO INSTALL;
    --- After Reboot REMOVE SD CARD ---
    -Sign in to your google acoount;
    -Go to App Store (my apps), find and update to last version your SuperSU app...
    -Start app SuperSU (SuperSU will ask you to update binaryes)
    -Select by TWRP. Confirm by OK. System will boot recovery, update, then again reboot.

    Minix is rooted.

    Hello. This root method does not work. Hangs on the "minix" and does not start. I tested 10 times. What's wrong?
    First I installed a new version 13. Then I did it the way it's worth.
    What's wrong?

    I did not understand how you did it. Explain more clearly.

    Where I made a mistake that I forgot to: REMOVE SD CARD before you press update supersu binaryes by TWRP.
    I did the same again to check and record everything.
    I can not post links ... search for "TWRP recovery (ver. 3.0.2-0 by AbduL )" ... rename before you flash into recovery.img.
    Say you succeed because it has to work 100%

    I can also confirm that Finless's U1 EZ root for FW013 Firmware does not work! Exactly the same issue as the other users report of stuck on the glowing Minix logo. I had to re-flash back to stock FW013.
