« on: August 29, 2016, 04:14:04 PM »
When is Kodi 16 available for our cood-e box?
Mine is still running on Kodi 14.

You can do it yourself! Follow the below instructions at your own risk (you'll lose all settings etc) to get the normal version of Kodi from the Play Store. It can also update right away if newer versions become available.

- First download and install confluence++ skin for helix and apply it.
- From the home menu go to android apps.
- Go to play store. There you can login with your google account and download apps just like on your smartphone or tablet.
- Download any third party launcher (apex launcher would do fine).
- Press the home button on the remote. A pop up menu will appear asking which launcher you would like to start (XBMC Start or the third party launcher you installed). Select the third party launcher.
- From the launcher go to system settings, select apps, kodi and uninstall it.
- Go to play store, search for kodi, install it and you' re good to go.

P.S.
1) Do the above procedure at your own risk, as I read here at the forum that doing so may brick your unit. It worked for me though.
2) As I wrote above I did this procedure without rooting the device. It worked for me but from what I read here at the forum others cannot uninstall kodi at all. This means the device must be rooted first. Again if you decide to do so, do it at your own risk as rooting an android device may not have always the same result. It may brick the unit.

I tried this but my box is stuck now.
When i turn on the box only the cood-e logo is spinning. I think it's broke now...

Can i restore this?

I've already tried this:

01. Plug in power.
02. TAP the MENU button during the solid (first) COOD-E logo (keep tapping).
03. This will boot the system recovery.
04. Select: Wipe data/factory reset.
05. When done, Select: wipe cache partition.
06. When done, Select: Enter factory mode (reset system).
07. When player is done, it will reboot and recovery/factory reset has done.

Hmm, strange! You say you 'tried' the reset procedure. How did that go? Were you able to complete it? Or did you get stuck at a certain step?
