    I have already updated my Neo X8-H Plus to the latest 2016 firmware.
    However, I am unable to install the Exodus addon for XBMC.
    It flashed a message on screen stating that it is incompatible.
    I did not install Kodi 15.2 as I all along been using MiniX XBMC.
    Appreciate for some kind assistance over this matter.
    Thank you.
    Good day.

    Which version of Minix XBMC are you using. If you are using the gotham version (13.3) then update to the latest 15.3 version.

    Thanks for your reply, Higgs.
    My current version is : XBMC 13.3-Minix(3)
    Git: 20141220-03810e0 (compiled : Dec 29 2014)

    Can my Minix unit (X8-H Plus) update to the latest 15.3 version?.
    If yes, where can I download this 15.3 version?

    Thank you and Good day.

    Thanks for your prompt reply and the download link.

    Just to ensure I perform the update correctly, please correct me if my steps are incorrect.

    1. uninstall the current version 13.3.3
    2. install the new version 15,3
    3. I believe that all my previously created add ons/plugins will still be fully intact.

    I look forward to your kind guidance with thanks.
    Good day.

    You can skip step 1.
    Your settings/addons should be still there but it never hurts to do a backup first.

    Just completed performing the update for Minix XBMC to version 15.3 and simultaneously added with Exodus.
    The whole process was done with success.
    Thank you Higgs.
    Good day.

    Same here, both 15.3 & Exodus running fine - all settings same as set previously in 13.3.3 so no hassles (y)

    15.3 does not work on G4 or X5, too bad I have to use Kodi 15.2 on them instead !

    My friend owns a Neo X6.
    He is afraid and have no confidence to update his current Minix XBMC 13.3.3 to 15.3
    Hence would like to check whether any Neo X6 owners have already updated to 15,3 with success.
    Thanks in advance for your reply.
    Good day.

    15.3 should update on the X6 without problems if using the default Confluence skin as a S805 box will struggle with a more complicated skin like Xonfluence, but just to be on the safe side he should backup his XBMC settings with USB-SDCARD Wizard first just in case he has to reinstall 15.3 or Kodi 15.2 from scratch. The thing is he has to update to 15.2 if he whats to use Exodus or Specto.

    Thanks for your input, EdT586.
    I will pass your message to him and he will make his own decision whether to update or not.
    Good day.

    I will assume you already have the latest firmware updated.

    For XBMC, if you are using the gotham version (13.3) then update to the latest 15.3 version.

    The link to download the apk file is : http://www.minixforum.com/downloads/download.php?file=MINIX_XBMC_20151230.apk

    Just use apk installer app to complete the installation.

    Good day.

    I have recently enabled downloads in Exodus and I am wondering if there is any way to view the progress of downloads other than the pop-up every ten percent

    Sorry, I don't quite really understand your statement.

    I believe you should already have added-on Exodus to your collection successfully.
    So my guess is that you are referring to the updating of Exodus, the frequency depends on the availability of new updates.
    Normally updating is done in the background so you do not need to bother with it.
    You will notice a updating progress message on the right bottom corner.
    However, I have never encounter what you had mentioned a pop-up every 10%.

    I think @ PO1ndexter means the percentage status as a movie is being download , not the addon it self !

    Oh! so my understanding is incorrect.

    For my personal viewing, I watch it streaming.
    I do not download the movie.
    Hence I may not be able to help on this.

    Anyone care to assist @PO1ndexter on this particular issue?
