[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility

If I just want to delete the whole database of thumbnails so it fully recreates it again, is still good to do it deleting textures13db and the thumbs folder, or I will have problems?

If you've got a Python2 or Python3 interpreter on Android 9 then yes the script should work. Otherwise the best option is to use a computer that does have Python2 or Python3 (a PC, Windows, Linux etc.) and when you run the script you tell it to connect to your Kodi client running on Android 9 (ie. texturecache.py @kodi.host=192.168.0.123 c tvshows etc. where 192.168.0.123 is the IP address of your Android device).

If you want to delete the entire thumbnail cache then no - the script is not the best way to do that! To nuke the entire cache you only need some way to access the storage on your Android device - once you have that, you can shutdown kodi and delete both the Thumbnails folder and Textures13.db file, and when you restart kodi it will create an empty cache.
