    I like the Backup add-on from the official Kodi repo. You can specify which parts of Kodi to backup, whether to zip (compress) the backup, where to backup, set a schedule, and I think it can use cloud storage (never tried this).
    I have done a restore once to fix problems within Kodi. Since the add-on is in the official Kodi repo, it would seem easy to get up and running from a new Kodi installation.
    One caveat: with Jarvis, it has had occasional failures creating a backup. This seems to be "fixed" by exiting and starting Kodi again.

    Also, I backup to a USB drive that I keep plugged in all the time.

    I hope this helps someone! :)

    FOTA update worked fine a couple of weeks ago, the only minor gripe being it knocked all the favourites off the Minix screen. Android apps & XBMC still OK
    Kodi Isengard update found by reading this thread is now installed too - solved a few incompatible add-on problems that had crept in with Helix

    Uninstall the current one!
    Also make sure you have "Allow for installation from unknown sources" checked.

    The current one comes with the minix x8-h-plus and can't be uninstalled i can force stop the app but I can't see where I can uninstall it, I am also running another one called TVMC that I downloaded myself and works ok. I just wanted to update the minix one to see if I can get that one to work better. Thank you for help.

    You should be able to uninstall it via Settings, Apps

    I have looked at everything but my box is not rooted so this app can't be uninstalled I have tried all the app managers and they don't work i just can't understand how other people with the same box can update this new xbmc for minix but I can't? I will keep looking into how to uninstall this app but for now thank you for all your help.

    Pretty sure I uninstalled the older version with a long press on the app icon in "all apps"...should bring up the option to uninstall

    The best way is to download the full system image of FW008 and perform a clean flash with a PC.
    It's always the most reliable method of upgrading the firmware.

    My minix x8h-plus have 2014.11.22 release keys, Which one the best way to upgrade an why? usb or PC? usb seems to be a lot easier and with less chance of error

    I just noticed this thread, so, unless my box updated itself, i should be on 007A (20150925).
    With this said, is OTA to latest firmware available from 007A?

    And did this update increase the blue led light?
