Hi Nicolae! Rooting gives you full access to all options of the OS of your Box. This also brings the risk that you can damage more like intended. Keep this in mind! If you have a simple setup like: Exclusively small mkv files from a local disk through the Zidoo Hometheather then you most likely do not need to root your box. If you have a more complicates setup like UHD Iso´s through SMB from a NAS with Kodi, the XBMC wrapper and various demanding addonns then you might run into problems without rooting as some components might need access to your OS wich is not possible without rooting.
