    Hi all , im lookig for some info on a android tv box I bought a few weeks back ! First of all I want to say im relatively new to this whole notion of rooting , firmware , flashing etc etc and to be honest from reading or viewing videos im all mixed up as to where to start first ?

    This box is a android b351 box , R-box is what appears on start up !
    first off I noticed that the box was telling me im not connected to the net even though I was .
    I tried factory reseting it but it made no difference .
    I bought the box to use xbmc on it but when I installed (xunitytalk) version it seems very buggy and crashes alot or films dont play very smoothly .
    I have updated my connection to a fibre powered line thinking my speeds where not up to scratch but that wasn't it ..
    So after researching a bit ive learned that the box needs 1 : rooting 2:proper flash/firmware 3: updating the os to 4.4 kit kat as 99% of these devices are not properly set up to run xbmc ..
    Another term ive heard is kernaling it ?? I now know these things need to be done first before a proper build of the unit can commence but I dont know where to start ?
    Thats where I hope someone here can help ..
    Thanks..

    Welcome to the Forum. Most of these Android boxes come pre-rooted. Check with the manufacturer to verify.
    For a clean version of xbmc, try this link. Make sure you install the file that is compatible with your box.

    Downloads Kodi

    This box ain't pre rooted Jeffrey , cause I downloaded a app the other day (fullscreen) which I couldn't use and I got a notification that the box needs rooting to use ..
    I already am aware of the kodi/ xbmc website for downloading the software .
    It's the rooting / flashing / os I want to learn about & get right first .
    Where do I start ? Root then firmware then os ?

    Yes, root comes first. You will need a root method that is compatible with your box.
    Once rooted you can flash a custom ROM or Stock Android.
