    Nice easy to follow guide thanks. I will be rooting soon my x8 soon
    Does root affect Channel 4 Player (40d)

    If root does affect 40d, is there a way to "turn offf" root, temporarily

    Hi Chimok I have tried Adgaurd on another non rooted device, I am not 100% certain but I feel my response times have decreased (possibly due to it using a VPN). Having said that Adgaurd does get rid of most adds

    They have added Domain based blocking lately, maybe this is faster? Settings > Advanced (at the end of the list) > Filter DNS requests

    I have two tablets, one is rooted (Adaway and xposed filter modules) and one is not (AdGuard)- I don't notice any difference in speed. But this is just my feeling, I haven't run any benchmarks.

    Does not work for Kodi 14.2 on Minix NEO X8 Plus (KOT49H 20150924). Kodi goes to crash, network variables in android 'environment' is wrong = NO NETWORK! at all.
    Such mods will work only for the matching android & kodi version on where it was made.
    On all other divergent developed versions it will not as on their development some changes
    where made who did not match to the version as the root was derived from.

    My general suggestion; NEVER CHANGE A RUNNING SYSTEM!!

    You've surely figured this out by now but just flash the latest STABLE "update-supersu-V.x.xx.zip" file found on Chainfire's site and XDA. That should do the trick along with an up-to-date version of Busybox. You should use SD Maid or similar to clean out any unwanted leftovers from all those other superuser apps you tried first.
