Dear Friends

I was looking for a video where I can find the method to change the language of the Mi TV Box to English, root it and help in installing Google Play by overcoming the common Google Play error that Google Server can not be contacted.
Though I found many different posts and blog I could not find anything consolidated.

I was able to root my Mi Box succesfully after struggling but unrooted and made a video with step by step guide for doing the needful so that others can benefit from the same. My version of MiBox is latest{at time of post| 1.3.73 (stable) so if you are an older version you can without any tensions upgrade :-)
I hope you all are able to get benefit out of this effort.


Cheers
Kamesh Jain

PS: I have never bricked my Xiaomi MI TV Box by doing any of the above, though it is safe but please follow at your own risk.. Thanks just a disclaimer.

******************* Description and step by Step Instructions*************************
Section A: What we need for Setup
Section B: Language UI Change to English , Root & Google Play Installation without Contact Google Server Errors
The credit of the rooting software goes to the developer who has made our life easier. Unfortunately I am not sure who that great person is! Kudos to him :)
Section A:
1) We need a laptop, a micro usb cable for connecting Mi Box to Laptop and preferably if you have a wireless mouse & keyboard connected to Mi Box that would be added advantage.

2) We need below mentioned folders & files to be available on our laptop to start with. This can be downloaded using dropbox links provided.

After you have downloaded all these files on your laptop. You can use this easy tutorial video I made which is very concise and covers each and every aspect of things we need to do. Just see the video patiently.
My version of MiBox is latest{at time of post| 1.3.73 (stable) so if you are an older version you can without any tensions upgrade :-)




I am hoping people would be able to benefit and make their Mi Box ready in less than 20 minutes.Please let me know in case you have any query.
