since you declared yourself as IT guy.

do these:

1. connect box to pc using ADB
2. delete busybox and su files in system|bin folder
3. delete supersu.apk in app folder.

you will get either a unrooted box or bricked box (if you have done it wrongly, but not to worry, time to practise flashing of firmware).

for non-IT guy, the same can be done via es explorer by navigating to the folders and delete the few files - but there is still risk of bricking the box.
Tried the non-IT guy way on Tanix TX5 Max and TX 6 and both failed to delete the files. Apparently they are protected even though both are rooted.

Tried SuperSu and Magisk on both boxes as well and again failed.

So I gave up.
