    I tried several attempts to update to FW008 but from the System Update was showing me “Your system is currently up to date,

    May I know what am I missing?

    Surely this must be 18.1? I'm currently using Kodi 17.6 from play store.

    As mentioned, the next firmware is already under development.
    We're working on the Android OS upgrade, it'll be made available when ready.
    We decided to release this firmware update in the meantime to address outstanding bugs.
