            I'm exactly in the same situation. Box is good, build quality is great, GigEth & optical audio works perfectly. However, I also spend the full last week on trying to root it. Whatever I do, editing boot.img, re-building pre-rooted system.img, finding its B9150 root kernel's from Chinese websites etc. nothing works.

            When it comes to flashing the images I build, Odin always FAILS at the end. I guess it has a locked bootloader. What a pity!

            As such I'm unable to exploit all its power, can't use it for backups as utilities can't change file modification times on the 1TB ext4 disk. Can run some servers but not at the port they are supposed to work as we don't have root. etc. etc.

            Very frustrated I'm also wishing someone to break its locks then we'll have a perfect device!

            PS. I got it on a 2nd hand website (but unused) for 220$.

                I heard it was locked up tight. Thanks for the updates.

                  Where did you hear it? I'm trying to find a forum where people can discuss this box but theres none, not even -yet- in XDA.

                  Btw, I managed to get file modification times right when I attached an exFAT formatted USB Stick to the box. So this at least sorts out a shortcoming. (But there are many without root!)

                    Btw, can the thread owner change the subject to "Samsung HomeSync GT-B9150" maybe to attract more people to the thread?

                        can any of the guys who owns the box try to move the Helicopter.mp4 video to a NAS and try to streaming to the box.
                        also move it to your phone and try to mirroring to the box.
                        also i would like other to try to do the same on what ever android player you have. and post back results.
                        this is the video for download

                        on my case the streaming to the box was like slow motion and on the mirroring worst.

                        this thing is going back to BB. today sorry guys.

                          Thanks for renaming the thread

                          I'll download and try it when I reach home in a few hours. I did not have issues playing a 720p and 1080p video before from my home server, through SMB access of ES File Explorer with native video player or with XBMC Eden's native smb access.

                                well i just return it.And also trade in my galaxy S4 for a Note 3 (for no money at all) which also have the boot-loader locked but at XDA they manage to root the phone by hex editing the system image to call a script on the sdcard as root.
                                This is the link
                                I guest those interested in rooting this box should as for help to the person who did it.
