Title: latest update.
Post by: dabba on January 20, 2016, 06:27:54 PM
Just would like to ask before I update, is there a 'best method' to do this? and also what is the best way to clear any cache please?

Hey Dabba  8),

Your COOD-E TV will prompt for the new update after boot-up.
(Make sure to be connected trough Wi-Fi or Ethernet).

You can also search manual for the update.
Go to Homescreen -> System (ON TOP) -> Check for updates -> NEW VERSION
Or go trough -> Settings -> General -> Other -> Check for updates -> NEW VERSION

Just select online update and confirm download and confirm to install when or if coode box will asked you..

After coode has installed the firmware you will notice its still saying kodi 14 1 Helix is installed instead of 15.2 isengard but the firmware version says V1.2.5.
Dont panic and just go to coode settings (the menu where you also can change resolution like 1080p and 720p etc. And there you can do a factory reset.
Reset your coode  box and after its done and has restarted you will see Kofi 15.2. Is up and running. 

I know the devolepers didn't mentioned anything about doing a factory reset but trust me and just reset your box ..

greets Coert

many thanks for advice, Cood-e did not show prompt for update, but found it as you described and it now shows 1.2.5,  I can not see the kodi setting either 14.1 or 15.2 anywhere? I did the factory reset so now have no addons, I did not have many to start with and most would not load or mentioned error see log?
now I am starting from scratch, I would like to know what and how to add please.

I've located 15.2 on the system info page, just need some advice for the rest please.

Dear Dabba,

I believe you're having issues on how to install addons, right?
Check the wiki page below
http://kodi.wiki/view/Add-ons (http://kodi.wiki/view/Add-ons)

Fortunately, Kodi has wikis for everything.  :)

Cheers, guys.

So, my experience with the new update hasn't been that perfect, but it's ok.
Isengard is installed, 15.2, no question about it.  ::)
I've had to perform a factory reset and reinstall everything (addons, librarys, whatever).
Seems a bit laggy to me, much more than 14.1, but I'll give it some time. Fanart displays very slowly at first, but once it's in the cache, it's ok. Some addons don't work like they used to, but that's because you may still have the Helix version of those. Keep them updated and you'll be fine.  8)
To my discontent, IPTV Simple PVR client is not working any more. Addon cannot be loaded. I've perfomed 2 more resets, uninstalled and installed it again and it's still not working. I've ran out of ideas... :'(
Appart from that, I'll keep you posted for any other issues I may encounter.

Regards,
Art

Hey,

Well aguerido (couldn't you choose a easer name haha every time I have to check if I'm writing it correct 8)
I have to agree with (here we go again  :P ) aquerido  8)
The GUI isn't running smooth and sometimes its really laggy... And 15.2 is normally very smooth.. But OK it lags but it works so its a cosmetic imperfection its not the end of the world..

Hey, mate.

No worries...just call me Art. My full name is much bigger, trust me.   :)
Glad to know I'm not the only one experiencing these lags. What about IPTV Simple client, have you tried it yourself?

Regards,
Art (see? much easier)

No worries, mate.
Just take your time since these things usually take a while.
And just ask away, whenever you're in doubt.  ;)

Mine was very laggy too.
So, i've made a full factory reset. Like in this post:
http://forum.cood-e.com/index.php?topic=25.0
Now my kodi is amazing. Very fast, without lags, uge performance compared to 14.1
I've already solve my problem with autosubs script and keymap addon. With Isengard i cannot remap volume+ and volume-, others remote buttons work fine with new remap.

We all did a factory reset because that was needed to complete the update process so we all started with a clean install ....but..!!! After installing add dons etc..and after using 15.2 coode firmware for a few days it really really lags and isn't feeling as smooth as I should be ..

I can also confirm that mine is a bit laggy too. Did a factory reset and started from a scratch but still seems to me much less responsive that it was before the update to 1.2.5.  :(

Fanarts are loading slowly, and seeking forward and backward during playback is also way tooooo slow.

I still hope the developers can polish these few things soon. COOD-E is a good box but these minor bugs don't really help to get more customers...

Couldn't agree more .. And In my opinion the could do more ... I mean if you're working on a update for more then 3 months and giving anwsers like we are almost ready with the update but we want it to be perfect before releasing so delay after delay and finally the update is OTA youre expectations ar really high.. And then to see it really isn't more then just kodi update go the next stable version.  And the adding for the new qwerty remote.. Yeah thats really disappointing ... For 2 days after update it was smooth and snappy but after that the smooth snappy feeling was gone...
So I desided I don't wanted and won't wait for coode to fix bugs, add and update anymore..
So now 1week after update V1.2.5 I have a smooth and snappy android box , kodi without lag and skipping ffw streams within a blink of your eyes...
Reboot Coode box, reboot recovery, reboot system UI, stand by and fast reboot function intergrated in system.
Full android TV box (with system start in android instead of Kodi,
Superuser rights (installed as system app so I keep root after updating firmware)
And the best part if is all Cood-e function incl. OTA update are still 100% functional...
Only thing not working is BT keyboard but that's a known bug of android KK and for as far as I know there no known fix ....

Hi Guys,

As some topics are flooded with posts and people say, i have this to etc.
It becomes very unclear what is the issue.

Therefore i made a new board: http://forum.cood-e.com/index.php?board=11.0
Called BUG REPORT, please make sure to check if some bug already has been reported.

In this way we can keep track of the bugs and solve them in a good and fast way and we can also report if something had been solved or something needs more information if we are unable to find something.

Gr, Jeremy

since this upgrade the cood-e does random reboots. what a crap  >:(
Title: Re: latest update.
Post by: Coert on January 29, 2016, 08:07:14 PM
Can confirm the random reboots .
The first day I've run official firmware no reboots second day experienced 2 or 3 random reboots
Title: Re: latest update.
Post by: aln on February 08, 2016, 08:28:06 PM
I downgraded back to 1.2.1 few days ago. Looks like the random reboots are gone.

follow this procedure:
http://forum.cood-e.com/index.php?topic=25.0

It will restore back to the first image on the device, in my case it was 1.1.2 I think, than you can update to 1.2.0 and than to 1.2.1

Post by: Coert on February 21, 2016, 08:43:54 PM
I resolved all my Cood-e firmware related problems.!!!
I just don't use the Cood-e Bugware "controls, alt and delete..!!"
And it was like magic... From that moment on I haven't experienced 1 bug, the UI is so smooth and snappie and the best part is "I never have to wait for a update ever again.. I can update Kodi As soon as kodi releases a new update ..
Title: Re: latest update.
Post by: wortel87 on February 21, 2016, 09:26:10 PM
Indeed.

Dont try fixing something that isnt broken. The stock kodi was good enough from the start.

And i,m glad its now available to me.

Just focus on tweaking the box itself.

I also got a mibox pro enhanced amlogic s802-h en Mali 450 6+2cores 600mhz en 1gb ram.. En die was altijd vele malen sneller dan deze coode
maar nadat ik wat init.d scripts had toegevoegd,
de CPU op 1.8ghz geklokt heb ipv 1,5ghz
de cpu govenor naar ondemand heb gezet ,
En alle onnodige ROM en ram vretende rotzooi eraf heb geflikkerd loopt ke coode box zelf nog beter en lekkerder dan me mibox pro...
Werkt echt zo onwijs fijn nu.. Geen irritatie momentje meer gehad sinds ik en FF goed onder handen heb genomen. .

Post by: Coert on February 26, 2016, 11:27:46 PM
Install apex launcher,
Open settings (Android  settings menu),
Apps,
Select Kodi,
Delete Kodi,
Go to playstore,
Install Kodi (16.0 is downloadable in play store)

And that's it
