      Indeed. I accidentally uninstalled my Kodi and was left with vanilla Jarvis 16.0
      After hours of looking, this is the site where I got the info on how to upgrade again to 16.1 .
      Many thanks!

    Thank you so much, now i have Kodi v16, before I couldn’t go beyond v14.
    However, I couldn’t able to add on video files like Phenix, Exudos or steam hub, I would really appreciated if you can instruct me on how to download them, thanks

    hi , my box has a kodi emblem, tried uninstalling & re installing kodi 17 but it won’t do so. on the file browser thr updated file shows but when I click on it it says “there was a problem parsing the package”

    • iTcHy says:

      Your box may only be compatible with Jarvis 16.0/16.1 .
      I made the same mistake. Your Android hardware settings will probably tell you your hardware is version 4.(something).
      Android hardware needs to be version 5 and above to be compatible with Jarvis 17, I *think*.

    I have a MediaBox M8 and I had (and still have) Kodi 16.1 on it, however, today the screen went all weird and I unplugged it and when I plugged it back in everything worked fine except Kodi.

    When I go to click on the app, it’ll go to start up but then fail and when I go check under “apps” in settings it shows that’s it’s still there. I went to see if there was an update for it in Google Play store but Kodi was nowhere to be found! And when I searched for it, it said it wasn’t compatible with my device (it’s 4.4.2)

    I would love to update it, but in your method you say to delete data and I’m scared that I’m going to lose everything I worked over a year to get (all the shows and movies in two profiles, as well as settings). However, if that is all lost anyway, then I will update it, but if there is a fix or a way to keep my data and update that would much appreciated.

    I also tried clearing the cached data in both Google Play store and Google Play services and uninstalling the updates for both (I found an article online from Google itself which have those directions) and neither worked.

    Would you know why everything started up fine except Kodi? And is there a fix or a way for me to update as well as keep my data?

    Thanks for your help!

    I have the MXQ 4.4.2 and Kodi took a crappy on me. Tried everything in my power to get it up again and had no luck. Follow the directions and type in the media fire and plug in fusion and your good to go. Trust me, I spent days. Found this link and couldn’t be happier. Thanks
