For managing separate applications you can choose Supersu instalation. Activate Root access you can: Settings – Ugoos settings – System – Root.

File (Samba) Server
File server allows sharing files among different OS devices in local network. This feature was one of the most popular functions on Ugoos boxes based on Android 4.4. and 5.1 based on RockChip SoC and Amlogic s905 SoC. Now it comes to AM3 device. Root from the box is available since last firmware in Settings – Ugoos settings – System.

You also can choose to show text values or just animated graphics statistics in upper bar or exclude all of them.
