Amlogic s912 TV Box (BeeLink GT1 etc.)
Most TV boxes come rooted. Mine did but I lost it when doing an OTA update.
I have ADB root. I can mount and unmount and remount the system partition. I have tried to manually install the Su binary using ADB but the process was really complicated and I was not successful.
My Android TV box doesn't have a bootloader mode so it is impossible to use fastboot. Using ADB I can bootloader into stock recovery but cannot bootloader into bootloader
I could just DD TWRP recovery onto /DEV/recovery
but I assume there is a better way to get the Su binary onto my device.
Can't I use ADB to install the Su binary an easier way than manually pushing all those files and doing chmod etc??
Can't I use the stock recovery to sideload the zip file? or even just sideload the zip without being in recovery mode? If I have ADB root, why do I need TWRP?
@hoshi411 Hi hoshi411, I would personally recommend asking Chainfire, the creator of SuperSU, on XDA-developers.com . This website is for entry-level problems and, frankly, I really donno what to do when Android TV box lost root. Sry about this and all the best with XDA!
