If it's a dealer that's approved by XGIMI then go for it, if not then avoid it. I've been on most forums that discusses the XGIMI and I have not seen anything about hacks or special access to features that we all don't know about.
I have got mine through these guys pretty awesome in support through Email or Facebook Messenger
Item received 7 days after i placed my order - Am based in Auckland - New Zealand.
Look for XGIMIProjectors in FB
Unsure of root access - have minimal knowledge on them
But I followed YouTube video advises & installed KODI - downloaded Android play store & multiple applications through Kodi Android
I believe I read somewhere in forum quoting Google restrict on some countries on having it in main area but this workaround way still keeps me going!
