    After updating the firmware to 5.1 i have lost root access is there a way to get it back, can't find any info on this site or through google. It's not a major problem i only need it for reboot

    Might be quickest to see if the 3rd party who supplied the firmware has a rooted version instead.

    If not, there are two versions of the Q8-S device - can you let us know the filename for the firmware you flashed, or the site it came from? That should hopefully lead to an easy ID of the exact Rockchip silicon in your device, then a Google or two to check if rooting procedure is available.

    Thanks for the reply, the firmware came from the stickied thread in this section,

    Q8-S RK3288 lollipop firmware.img is the filename
