RE: Player Choices with Kodi + 3D ISO + HD Audio - Skank - 2015-05-28

Well, if i'm running kodi 15 beta 1 on the m3
and beta 2 comes out

How do i update then? It auto updates on android? Or do i delete everything first of kodi and then reinstall, or do i need to completely flash the device, and reinstall firmware, then the new beta and then again the wrapper?

When a new version of Kodi comes out, I've been uninstalling the old, installing the new, then moving my backed-up .kodi folder over. Have to re-apply HiMedia wrapper APK. There's probably a better way as with Amazon Fire TV, for which I just use ADB and push the new Kodi APK like so... adb install -r kodi-15.0-Isengard_beta1-armeabi-v7a.apk. But, don't know how to do similar with HiMedia.

Now, if a new firmware for HiMedia is out, installing it completely wipes out everything you had on the box. I've made HiMedia engineers aware of this, but for now, I backup .kodi, and end up having to reinstall Kodi, HiMedia wrapper, ESFileExplorer, and any other apps. Also, need to redo HiMedia player settings.

i see
I dont know this "adb", cant i install the kodi apk with apk installer?


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + 3D ISO + HD Audio - hdmkv - 2015-05-28

I just put on a USB stick and use HiMedia's file browser to open/install. But, you need ESFileExplorer (with show hidden folders/files enabled) to copy your .kodi folder over (unless you want to do a fresh Kodi install only).

And what when theres a new version of kodi? it auto updates or do i need to restart from 0 ?

yes every time

I've always had to update Kodi manually (except with OpenELEC boxes), but I first save the .kodi folder (with userdata, thumbs, etc.), then copy over after I've installed Kodi. I use ESFileExplorer to do this.

i use backup kodi programm addon , work very well.

What are the advantages of kodi 15 beta 1 relatively to 14.2 pre-installed ?

RE: Player Choices with Kodi + 3D ISO + HD Audio - Skank - 2015-05-29

i need the kodi arm version right? or x86?

edit:
M3 4K3D. 27-MAY-2015. FIRMWARE HMD-1.0.9 FUTEKO-EN. Changelog:

1. Pre-installed Skype, Facebook, Youtube, Netflix, Kodi.
2. Fixed Kodi and Chrome cannot update.
3. Miracast.
4. One click to enter APPs on the main UI.
5. Supports 23.976fps.


It says kodi is preinstalled? so i dont have to install it again?
Which version is preinstalled? 15 beta 1?


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + 3D ISO + HD Audio - Saragosa - 2015-05-29

You could stay with 14.2 pre-installed or update to kodi ARM 15.0 beta 1.

RE: Player Choices with Kodi + 3D ISO + HD Audio - hdmkv - 2015-05-29

No, I recall they will both coexist. I just uninstalled 14.2 and went with latest 15.

Which version box do you have? Does it have Chinese writing/branding or English? Firmwares for two are different.
