    I have Minix X8-H Plus, latest firmware ver 007. When I turn on the Minix and selects the XBMC icon on the main screen, it "thinks" for 2-3 seconds and then nothing happens - KODI doesn't start and it returns the the main Minix screen. (By the way, the XBMC is the original version 3 as arrived with the device).
    I would appreciate if anyone can help me what to do !

    Why do you expect Kodi to start if you have XBMC?
    You could uninstall XBMC and reinstall it. But I would suggest you install the Play Store version of Kodi.

    Thanks for the reply. I meant XBMC of course, thanks for the correction! Anyway, how can I uninstal or reinstall this XBMC?

    Go to Settings, Apps, XBMC and select uninstall.

    To reinstall:
    Use ES File Explorer, go to /Device, system, preinstall and select xbmcminix*********.apk
