How to ROOT iMito MX1

Postby geekbuying » Sat Nov 03, 2012 10:09 pm

Thanks for deadhp1's instruction, i have followed and rooted the iMito MX1 sucessfully, here is the instruction:
I suggest you connect the iMito MX1 with your TV and your laptop together, so you can root it easily; we already tested to root iMito MX1 sucessfully with the following method:

Use the DC port to power on the iMito MX1, and use the OTG Port to connect your iMito MX1 with your laptop.

1) Download Moborobo and unrar into a folder.
download/file.php?id=17


2) Download TPSarky-VonDroid-Root.zip and unzip into a folder.
download/file.php?id=18

3) Install Moborobo and open it

4) Make sure USB Debugging is enabled on your iMito MX1 ( you should go to “setting” –”USB”–choose” connect to pc chooice” and then go to “Developer options”–open”USB debugging”choice)

5) Wait for Moborobo to see the device and install drivers. It will detect the device as iMito MX1.

6)Run TPSparkyRoot.bat and follow the on-screen instructions.Your iMito MX1 will reboot 3 times during this process.(please remember, after each reboot, you should choose “connect to pc” every time in the iMito MX1, if not, the root will be failed, that’s the reason why ask you to connect the iMito MX1 with TV and laptop together)When complete move on to the next step. (this root tool is based on the window n101 tablet, but please don’t worry,it can use on your tv stick, because they are the same chip)

7)Install SuperSU from Play Store.(If not installed in previous step)

8)Optional Install BusyBox from Play Store.

If all went well you should be rooted.
After rooted, you will see a app called” root explorer” in all of your apps, click that, you can manage all of the files and built-in apps, Please remember don’t delete any system apps, it will make your OS die. and if you are make sure some built-in app is useless, just open root explorer, choose ‘system” folder,and check” app” folder, then you will show all of the built-in app, remember to choose ” Mount R/O“ ,then you can choose the app you want to delete, click for a while (about 3-4 seconds), there will be a menu ask you to delete, copy or others, then you can do anything you want to do.

Yes i saw that but we the upgrade procedure doesn't work. I can't install the usb driver when my laptop detect the stick.
The laptop detect thevstick but the device name is "imito" and when i give manualy the correct path to the driver files, windows can't find a correct driver !
I try win7 and winXP
I think that you must give us other adapted drivers.
Thanks

3- refreshed on moborobo but it showed this.

I've stumbled upon the same issue, but had resolved. Try the following to fix it:
1. Unplug the stick from the PC
2. Uninstall the MX1 driver from the Device Manager and restart the PC
3. Uninstall Moborobo if you've updated to the latest version and re-install the one attached to this thread (once launched - don't close it, in order to eliminate the update)
4. Plug the stick into a different USB port on your PC
4. Carefully follow the OP's instructions

Good luck! ;)

I had the same problem (Win 7 (x64)- my solution: Start the Moborobo with a right click and then "start as administrator" - sorry I have a german system - but I think you understand me....

So not good. This isn't the solution for it. :oops:
I can't root my MX1.

I can't do this because of Windows. It's a joke.
(Win7 32bit)

Same problem here, can't root because win isnt able to install my drivers.
I'm thinking there should be a way to root this device in linux. Any hints?

Nevermind, I am just flashing a rooted rom with the update.img method:

If your firmware is made after 5th Nov 12 you just put the file update.img of a rooted version (can be found here) on a microsd and power up the device.

Worked fine.

bye, Steve

Download the rooted version of latest official ROM from there: https://docs.google.com/folder/d/0B2J_N ... kZ2OXlZX0k (example the rooted_iMito_MX1_V411_121129.zip)
Download the Rockchip driver: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2eqo5dcsu5bbh ... Driver.rar
Download the Flash Tool program: https://www.dropbox.com/s/u2ce4lfx0t9as ... 20tool.rar
Unzip the Flas Tool
Plug the MX1 to HDMI
Plug the MX1 with OTG cable to PC
Don't plug the AC adapter!!!
See the booting of MX1
Settings - USB - click "connect to pc"
Settings - developer options - click "USB debugging"
Storage - click "mass storage" (you can find on the right up corner!!!)
See the PC, and install the Rockchip driver:
1st step: select the 2nd radio button
Image
2nd step: select the driver folder
Image
After on the MX1 Settings - Storage - (Menu)USB computer connection - Mass Storage - off/deselect
Screenshot from this method:

After on the MX1 settings - developer options - delete "USB debugging"

Waiting... for the green button, and after click on the 2nd red button:

Waiting for reboot of MX1, and set the current time!!! (Because the Google can't sync with 01/01/2000 00:00:00...)

Download the USB driver yourself (that's all the Moborobo app is doing). Then carry on from step 6.

Please update the instructions in the OP. I just wasted my whole night because the instructions say to plug in the power wire. I cannot see device with both wires plugged in.

I think you only need to plug 1 wire in not 2.

I will read from page 2 tomorrow and try again.

Edit... The original instructions work, however only 1 cable is needed plugged into the side USB port or OTG port. I was plyggin it in wrong port.

First day with device and rooted super simple following the instruction in OP.

Rooting the Droid Incredible back in the day and the Motorola Razr Maxx year or so ago were much harder. This was simple plug and push buttons and done.

Thanks for the tutorial
