    Does anyone know if the X8 can be rooted? Maybe the same way as the X9S? Thank you.

    No, don`t use the Root over Lan.

    Zidoo must produced a Root for his System !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Zidoo team can you please let me know if it will be possible soon to root the X8? I want to know because my X8 will arrive one of these days. And no ROOT is NO GO.
    Thank you!

    agmarco, only for curiosity, why?

    PacoRabanne, I use a X6 Pro currently and this is rooted too. Let's say it brings me some comfort and flexibility. If you look at the threads and posts, and I am sure you have seen them, more people with other devices are working with rooted devices. Also offered by Zidoo team. So it is not only me who is happy with the possibility to root. Not sure if my answer is making it less vague.... ;-)

    agmarco, as you have surely seen in my posts, anso I want root, on all my android devices.
    But, looking to experience of other users that needs really unrooted device to use some (pesky) app, I prefer to have a fine official root (like the one offered by Zidoo for X6 pro I also own), but also a true unroot for the many users who need a really "not rooted" device for a satisfying device use.
    So, is Zidoo is waiting to release a root method for the above reasons, I prefer to wait.

    On the other hand, Zidoo is not answering in a clear way either yours and mine requests...

    Zidoo team I have a lot of respect for your work and I can know because I own a X6 Pro and I am happy how your team struggled through the issues and fixed most of them. But I now like to get that respect from you too. Can you please reply at the question if the X8 is going to have a root possibility? No is also an answer. Thank you.

    Thank you for the reply. I know you are going to fix this as there is a root for the X9S which also uses Android 6.0. Grazie mille.

    In the X9S topic Zidoo claims the almost have a root option available. Unfortunately they are not replying at my question if this will work for our X8 also. I really need it. New reason is that with a Mele F10 and other similar devices the USB takes over the output of sound and I have no sound through the speakers anymore. It can be solved with editing a policy but we need root access to do this. Hope Zidoo solves this soon.

    Hi
    we will add those function in V1.2.8 for X9S and X8
    1: onkeyroot apk support, to root the device.
    2: usb audio option button, to close the usb audio.

    Yoh Zidoo team, hope you had all had a great X-mas time! Sorry to push but I see there is some progress at the X9S beta firmware and even a onekeyroot app to root the X9S. Any chance we will see this soon for our X8?

    The Zidoo team has yet said in many posts that they plan to release the final 1.2.8 version close to the New Year's Day.

    Right now there are two different beta firmwares, one for each model: X9S and X8.
    Both firmwares have included the two asked options: USB Audio and OneKeyRoot.
    However, I can't assure you that will work as expected because I had no time to test them in depth
    (As the main purpose of those beta versions was to allow the beta testers to check their own translations before public release, I've been very busy correcting the spanish one)

    Zidoo told us weeks ago "any day, next week, before Christmas..... ". Let's see. I am, just like a lot of other members, awaiting fixes for the device we bought. We didn't make promises. But I also have a X6 Pro and I know Zidoo team are dedicated and I respect them. Hope they will make us happy soon.

    I've seen reports of users testing Beta5, so I know they are working to make sure it is stable/complete before releasing it to the general public. We just need to be a little more patient (I too just got an X8 and am anxiously awaiting the 1.2.8 release).

    I think we all are still awaiting the root app and the new 1.2.8 version. Close to New Year can be added to "any day, next week, before Christmas, close to New Year..... ".
    Zidoo don't have to push FW or root app when there are still issues. But if someone states it is coming "before or close to".... it would be appreciated to update the comment or at least tell us how long we still have to wait. I still can't use some apps I have running on my rooted X6 Pro and I can't use my Mele F10 Pro because of USB sound. I am still a happy Zidoo user but please don't keep us waiting without news to long.
