    If I go to the Play Store it says that the latest version of Kodi is not compatible with my device. Why is this and is there any way to update to a newer version?

    The latest version of kodi isn't compatible on the x8 because it's running android 4.4.2 instead of android 5.x.x you can update the firmware to accommodate the latest version of kodi or if you try a different fork of kodi you could run kodi 17 on 4.4

    Thanks, do I have to root my device to update the firmware? Every time I check for updates it says there aren't any.
    UPDATE: I found the instructions to do this via USB so I can have a go that way. But you'd think the button they built would do something!

    Can't wait for the next one, which will probably be called XH8-Plus :LOL: :ROFLMAO:.
    Last night I flashed my Minix and it's now running Android Lollipop. It's much faster and more reliable, and the new Kodi is miles better. Cheers!

    I assume you are referring to the thread title ! This will enable you to have some of the features of Kodi 17 but is based off of Kodi 16

    Download the Arm General/AML version...
