Understand there is mibox3, 3S, 3C, 3enhanced.
In terms of specs wise, it seems like
3>3C>3S>3enhanced. Being 3enhanced has the best hw specs.

But read that there is mi box android 6.0 which seems to me externally its the same as 3S.

If 3S being root and jailbreak to able to install 3rd party apk, then its a mibox android 6.0??

Sorry, but had tried to google ard and in taobao, taobao just make me more confused.
I admit, coming here asking seems to be faster, but not that i nv do homework, just that i tried google chinese, and it doesnt makes me more understand the difference.....

Need 1 that is of decent specs, no need the most expensive.
But hopefully can watch those discovery and disney junior stuff.
Similar to singapore cable. I know there are many apps can stream CCTV and mainland channel, i have them in my phone, but just want to get 1 direct to TV and not stream from handphone.

Taobao have those 小米盒子3s海外破解版 and 小米盒子3增强版海外

Looking at those.
Any kind input to guide me? Thanks.

Have anyone successfully installed International ROM on china mibox?

Saw another forums having global android ROM downloads. Not sure if anyone managed to install in. Shall try it when I have time.

Just Google global rom mi box and the first few results will have the thread

Official Chromecast doesn't work, but you can download "air Screen" tv app from Google TV play store.

Mirroring and casting are working fine in that app.

As for 4K, can't try it since my TV supports up to 1080p.

Overall, I really like the UI of android Tv compared to the stock China UI.
