        Same as mine.

        I've rooted mine just less than 1 hour ago; rooting successful.

        What i've done was pretty much what the author describes;

        - Installed the Wifi Adb ( the one with the 'bug' in the icon, made by MetaCtrl ).

        - Started the Wifi Adb app, took note of the IP address and port ( although i've just entered the IP, no port ).

        - Unzipped the ZIP file on to the desktop, executed the root_z64.bat file.

        - Program returned both '0' values, good to proceed to root.

        - Program copied the necessary files and set the necessary permissions.

        - Procedure ended without errors and was asking to press 'Enter' to reboot the Android box.

        - 'Enter' key pressed and all went according to tutorial.

        - Noticed the SuperSU app installed among other apps. OK.

        - Checked root access with 2 apps, first with the already installed CPU-Z for Android, then with Root Checker. Both returned valid root access.

        And that was all.

          Thanks for the reply, but I'm still falling at the second item on your list.
          When I start Wifi ADB, it doesn't give me an IP address to use, but instead, the message that it needs root access to work.

          It is the bug icon by MetaCtrl, and for test purposes I also tried it on my Pipo android tablet, where it also doesn't give an IP address, just the same message about needing to be rooted.

          I'm at the point of giving up now and returning the Android Z64 and buying the windows version instead.

          It's only £5 more, but I really did want to stay with Android for a change.

            Correction !!!

            I've just tried it again, and this time the wifi connection was steady, with no constant validating - connecting - validating messages.

            When I then ran WifiADB it did show an IP address and a port number.

            The whole process then went like clockwork, and I've tested it with root checker, as in the video, and it says all is ok.

            Thanks for your help RaceJay, and also the people who placed this on the forum.

            I can now set up Samba Server to enable access from a Windows PC, (fingers crossed )

            It's amazing that a great little device like the Z64 with Android and Kodi couldn't do Samba server like my crappy Western Digital Live box without all this extra tweaking. Thank the stars for forums like this and the gurus that do all the research and programming.....

              Great to know that you've finally sorted it out
              Keep in mind that, after the almost available update is out in FOTA, you may have to repeat the whole process again ( and also if the MINIX team haven't put a plug on the exploit that ables the rooting process ).
              BTW, you should give it a go at the new 2.1 version of the launcher...

                Dear FreakTab moderators.

                I have also bought the Z64A and basically want to root the device so I can use my android mobile as a remote control with one of the apps available, eg remoteIME DroidMote. Unfortunately the new Z64A has removed that ability to control via remote compared to the previous model neo X8 without buying their own A2 light remote controller. I have two old samsung's that I want to use as game controllers. I have tried all the steps described in this forum and keep getting the same error message previously posted by another member ie. adb not recognised. I tried using my home wifi, two different mobiles to tether wifi and thereby changing the IP address that shows on the wifi ADB app and kept getting the same error message adb not recognised. Has anyone got an idea on what else I could try? Many thanks for your help

                    The OP doesn't mention but you have to install ADB on PC. Have you done that ?
                    if [ $up.post.type = $type.two.lazy.to_use_google ] || [ $up.post.type = $type.silly_question ];
                    then mv $user.contact.up.post /.trash; set response($response.type = ignore);
                    $user.up.post.ignore_in_future = true; fi;

                      Thanks, what I have done is re-downloaded the root file and for some reason it just worked second time round. Many thanks for all your help. Im not sure if there is another thread about controlling the android Z64A with a mobile. Despite rooting the Z64A, remoteIME and DroidMote apps from my ASUS zenofne 2 are still not recognising the android box. Bluetooth does not want to pair between the Z64A and the zenfone 2. The only thing to say is my mobile is not rooted. I don't want to root it only to find out that it still doesn't work. Should I just cut the chase and buy a couple of game controllers or has anyone ideas about connecting the two. I think VNC requires a rooted phone to work.

                        Hi everyone,
                        Rooting worked great, as instructed.
                        Tried to install XPosed Framework and the system bootlooped. Had to reinstall the rom again
                        Does anyone know how to get XPosed running?

                        Thanks in Advance.
