    Hey Guys,

    New TV Boxes are coming up and we do our best to support the most popular ones...
    This is a Easy Root Package for the Tronsmart Vega S89 TV Box with STOCK ROM installed.

    How to Root:

    1. Download this zip file and put it on a SDcard. Do not unzip.
    2. Put the SDcard into the VEGA S89 microSD Slot.
    3. Go into your APPs and run the update tool. BUT NOTE: DO NOT have the OTG USB cable plugged into the S89! If you do it will boot into FLASH mode and not recovery!
    4. In the update tool click the "select" button. It should list the file update.zip. Click it.
    5. Now press the update button
    6. The system should reboot into recovery and automatically install the zip.
    NOTE: Sometimes it reboots to the Recovery menu! Not sure why.
    If it does, then using the mouse, select "Apply updated from EXT"
    Now select SDcard. You should see the update.zip file. Select it.
    Recovery will then install the update. When done select reboot system from the menu.

    Please report if it works for you or not.
    Thanks.

    Sure, why not ? Whats going on if the Online Update fails sometimes ?! You need OTG !
    I´m not firm with this Devices as I am doing Rockchip normally.

    Ok thanks! I can't figure out why my xbmc tv shows & movies all play zoomed out. Just bought this system and have tried adjustments on my TV and TV box ...still nothing works so I thought that it may need a new update to sort it out?
