X8 boot configuration possibilities

    I am going to buy X8 but I need one feature I am not sure is available.
    I'd like to be able to change booting source to boot e.g. from SD card instead of internal flash.

    I've read there is a method to root the device. Is it enough to change configuration variables in bootloader? (some kind of u-boot?). Is there any configuration file to set and writable on flash from root context? If somebody know please help.

    Need is e.g. switching between backup images saved on SD, modified with root access.

    and second thing. Is there any tool to extract image used to update? (install.img)

    any help would be appreciated thank you...

    I'm not aware of a option to boot from SDcard.
    Root is done with a apk. ( you can root and unroot )
    can't remember the name, but there is a generic android .img tool extractor. Search on xdadevelopers

    P.S. there was a discussion on russian forum 4pda about accesing the bootloader, but that's about the extend of what i read, was not interested in it so can't tell you more
