    Can I Install Kodi v17.0 “Krypton” on my X8-H box. Will it run. I see, I'm support to have Android 5.0 installed, will this be a problem.

    Try! I think you will find it won't install.
    Take a look in the Play Store for an update and it will not be available for the device because it is not compatible!

    I tried that and only 16.2 was available. What would happen if it was side loaded. Anything? Would it come up.

    Will this box ever be upgraded or should I be looking for a newer box.

    From all the info I can find, start looking! I bought my Minix X8-H because of the spec and the belief that they would support it. One of, if not the main, reason I bought it was to run XBMC/KODI, now I find that the OS being stuck on 4.4.1 precludes me from upgrading to v17, which is a huge improvement over previous builds. I recently bought an Android box for my sister on behalf of my niece, and as such went for a cheaper offering. It has an equal or better spec, comes with Android 6.0 and at 1/3rd of what I paid for my Minix is almost disposable. Just goes to show you don't always get what you pay for. 1st and last Minix box I'll be buying.

    Thanks, I ordered a different box today, too bad it worked okay except the sound dropouts I was always getting.

    I too paid the big bucks to have what i though to be the best box with the best support but found out that the cheaper boxes are just as good with newer firmware. I am very sad Come on MINIX Step up and show us your support.

    Hi nif nif, me i tried fof the last two weeks a MXQ boxe and MS8. Both work perfectly. Run on 5.1 lolipop. Mostly comparable spec than X8 H plus..The big difference of course is the price. On Amazon you'll find alot for as low as 60.00$ some are running 6.0 android. So at this price nobody would complain when no longer working...
