About EntertainmentBox Smart TV boxes / Android Powered TV boxes

The EntertainmentBox connects right to the back of your television, through a standard HDMI cable. The TV Box must also be connected to the internet through Wi-Fi, or an Ethernet cable. After the connections are made, you’ll get a display on your television screen of all the applications on the Entertainment Box. They are shortcuts to the different apps you’ll use on your E-Box. Entertainment Boxes come fully unlocked, so you can install, and uninstall applications as you see fit. And since the E-Box is built on top of the Android system, you can download and use any Android app, right on your television.

About XBMCKodiAddons /Kodi / EBMC / SPMC /  EBox Media Centre

Let’s take a look at an application called  EBox Media Centre, or EBMC for short. The EBox Media Center is built on SPMC, a form of a system called Kodi, which allows you to stream different types of media from your local storage flash drive, or different online sources. EBMC is constantly updated, and is the ultimate tool to transforming your television into the entertainment system of your dreams. Let’s take a more in-depth look at how the EBox Media Centre works.

Play video files from your local storage.

If we scroll over to videos, and click on files, you’ll have access to any files on a plugged in SD card, or any external hard drive or flash drive you might have connected.

In this case, I have an SD card plugged in with a zip file inside of it. If there were any video files on this SD card, they’d show up and I’d be able to play them right away. But since I don’t have a video file handy, this is where Kodi and the E-Box Media Center shines.

Install Kodi addon from a SD Card

EBMC / Kodi has the ability to add third-party add-ons, which opens a tremendous opportunity to make the E-Box even more functional. Let me take you through how to install these xbmc kodi addons.

Click on systems, scroll down to add-ons, then hit install from zip. You should see a directory open up, which allows you to locate your information source, which in this case is the SD Card I have plugged in.

There is also the downloads folder, so anything you download through the web-browser on your E-Box is downloaded into this folder. We’ll cover how to download and install files directly from your web-browser later.

Going back to the SD Card, you can see I have clicked on the 4 on Demand add-on, when it starts installing, you’ll be able to see it in the bottom right-hand corner.

Now let’s go back to my video add-ons library. Now that the install is complete, you can see the 4-O-D add-on installed. That’s how easy it is to download and install add-ons onto the E-Box from a SD card..

About Kodi repository’s

Another great feature of the Kodi system and the E-Box Media Centre is the ability to simply enter a URL web address to install any add-on. Let me show you exactly how to do that. First, let me explain what a repository is. A repository is a library of files, in this case the files are add-ons for the EBMC.

Let’s go into systems, and under systems, you can see the file manager tab. Click on the file manager tab, and then go to the bottom where it says, add a source. A new window opens with a URL Address bar. Type in the URL web address of where your repository / library is hosted.

Install Kodi Addon from a URL / Repository

I’m going to be installing the ITV add-on for Kodi, but to do that I have to first add the XUnity Talk repository. Once I’ve added the XUnity Talks repository, I’ll be able to get the ITV add-on from their library. Type in the XUnity Talks URL correctly, then hit done.

A new pop-up Window should appear. There has to be a name put in this spot, if there isn’t a name, please add one; then click OK. You’ll know if everything is completed correctly because on the right, you’ll see your new library.

Now with the new library available, let’s see what’s inside. Go back to the EBMC System tab. Click on add-ons, and then, hit install from zip. The available libraries should open up again. Go down to the newly installed XUnity Talks repository. Now that I’ve clicked on it, you can see in the bottom right-hand corner that it is adding the repository. Shortly,  you’ll be able to check the long list of add-ons from XUnity Talk.

Now go back and hit “install from repository”, instead of “install from zip”. XUnity Talk is available as a source to install from the repository list. Click on this repository, and you’ll see a list of video add-ons. You can click on any add-on you’d like to install.

I’m going to install a video add-on. I’m going to scroll down to ITV Hub Services, click on it, and install the add-on. It’s that simple. Now let’s go back to the EBMC Home Screen. And under videos, you’ll see add-ons. After clicking add-ons, you’ll see  ITV was successfully installed and is ready to be used.

Because of how easy it is to install add-ons, what you install and watch is completely up to you.

About Android Applications

We’ve covered how to install an add-on from a SD Card, as well as from a URL. But we can still do a lot more with the EntertainmentBox. Let’s close out all of these programs, and head back to the home screen. Now remember, EBox Media Centre is just one app from a huge library of apps already installed on your TV-Box. One of the services we highly recommend is Google Play. Google Play helps keep apps up to date, and allows you download even more apps you might want. Let’s take a look at how to create a Google Play account.

Create a Goggle Play Account

If you already have a G-Mail account, Google Play is super simple to set up. Just add your G-Mail account here. If you don’t have a G-Mail account, simply sign up for one quickly and easily in this window. Creating a G-Mail account for your E-Box is a great way to reap benefits from the Google Suite of apps and services you get for free from Google. Check those out on Google.com after you sign up HERE.

Create a Goggle Play Account for your Smart TV box

You can see the basic information Google requires for a G-Mail account; your name, date of birth, and gender. Now just enter your username and password, make sure to write those down and keep them handy. Remember, your new Google E-mail, or G-Mail, is your username @ gmail.com. You can use this username to log into Google, or any of its services.

Once you accept the terms and conditions, you’ll be able to see the different options and services Google offers. You can skip past adding a payment for now.

Search the Play store and find new apps for your TV box.

This gives us access to the Google Play store. From here you can update your applications, or install brand new ones. Let’s type in the word TV into the search bar. You’ll see a huge list of TV applications ready to be downloaded. I already have the BBC I-Player installed, and Google Play is asking if I’d like to update it to its current version. I’ll click yes, and the installation of the update is done quickly and easily.

Another great search term to check out is “Kodi”. Here you can download Kodi, a set-up wizard, or any other app that will open up the possibilities of your television. There are lots of Kodi guides as well, to help you through customization of your E-Box.

Google Play is the absolute best Android app store, but it’s not the only one. Let’s take a look at the other stores we’ve got installed on the EBox.

EBox App Store

This is our own EBox Store, where you can download and install customized applications for your EBox. Each application in the E-Box Store is hand-picked by us, guaranteeing that it works perfectly with the EBox.

If we click on the Happy Chick Games Store, it will automatically download it to your EBox. It’s another store available with games we think you’ll love. Once installed, Happy Chick Games Store will be available on the main list of applications, right alongside EBMC, Netflix, and BBC iPlayer.

On this main list of applications, you can see everything we have installed on our EBox, from iTV Hub, a couple of emulators, and of course our stores. Let’s click on the Happy Chick Games Store now that’s downloaded. Here you can see all of the different apps we can download from this store.

Applications are the heart of the EBox system, and creating a unique experience on your television. There is literally an Android app for any task or entertainment need you can think of.

Other great Applications for your EBox TV box

Another great app is Plex. It is another media centre application like EBMC and Kodi. But with Plex you can set up your content off site, like on your computer, and stream it directly through the Plex app on your EBox.

The giant in the streaming industry is Netflix, and of course the E-Box has Netflix ready to go. So you can watch all the movies Netflix has to offer, right through the E-Box.

Keep safe on your Smart TV box use IPVanish VPN

We take privacy seriously, and one app to make sure you stay secure while using the E-Box is IP Vanish. IP Vanish is an application that will hide your IP Address, keeping you safe while you surf the web. Any onlookers, including your internet provider, will not be able to see what you’re watching or downloading.  IP Vanish also unlocks any content that is geographically restricted, bringing freedom of content to you.

IP Vanish requires an account, and is a subscription based service. While you don’t necessarily need it, the security you’ll feel with it, is priceless. Check out the latest deals we offer on IP Vanish.

Using your built-in web browser to install applications

The EBox also has the ability to install applications from your built-in web browser. At the top of the applications page is an icon that says Browser. Clicking Browser opens up a Google Internet Browser Page where you can download anything you want, directly to the E-Box.

Let’s do a few Google searches now. The Browser includes a pop-up keyboard, but if you have a programmable remote, you can use that as well. Let’s type in “Best Android TV Apps for Movies”. Immediately an entire list of apps that can be used on your E-Box are shown.

One of those apps is the YouTube Android application, let’s install it. From our search we can scroll down to the YouTube add-on for Android. Clicking on the link brings us to the install page. Depending on the app, the install page might be inside the Google Play store, or it will take you directly to the download file. In this case, you can just click the Install button, and YouTube starts installing right away.

Remember, what you install on your EBox is completely up to you. As you can see from our Google Search, there are countless options to when it comes to deciding what’s on your Entertainment Box.

Download Android Apps

Let’s take a look at how to install an app through a Google Search which you have to download first, before installing. We’re going to visit our site. The links you see are all the apps we recommend for any Smart TV Box owner to download and utilize.

These links include direct download files, for example this is Spotify for Android as a direct download file link. Clicking on the link start the download process, and you can see the progress in the bottom right-hand corner. While that downloads, let’s head back and click on the TV Player Android App. As Spotify downloads quietly in the background, let’s also start the download for this app.

Once the files are downloaded, they’re saved in the downloads folder. You can locate the files by using one of two file browsers, or the APK installer,  you’ll find these in the applications page. Let’s go over the file browser method first.

APK installer, File Manger

We click on the file manager HD application. On the left hand side of the screen, you’ll see your downloads folder. Opening that folder shows you the two apps we just downloaded from Google. Simply click on the icons, and installation will begin.

Another application to search for your downloads is simply called, file browser. Opening File Browser takes you to the local disk icon, where you can open it and again see the downloads folder.

The APK Installer is the other method of installing downloaded applications from your downloads folder. You simply click the APK Installer, and it will search your local harddrive, as well a SD Card, or any external drive, for an application waiting to be installed.

Clicking on an application will bring up a prompt asking us if we’d like to install the app. Agree by clicking “Yes I would like to install the application”, and installation will begin right away. Let’s start the install now.

Once finished, we go back to the home screen where we can see all of our apps. You can see Spotify, which we downloaded from Google, and installed through the APK installer, is ready for you to listen to endlessly on your television.

How to uninstall Android Applications

The Entertainment Box allows you full control over the content on your television. Certain apps make your cut, and others you just have to get rid of. Let’s go over how to uninstall an app from your E-Box.

Click on settings, then click on the icon that says apps. This will open a window showing each application that you have downloaded. If you click on an app, a menu will appear which has the option to uninstall. Clicking on uninstall will bring up a prompt asking for your confirmation. Once you hit the OK button, Happy Chick Games Store disappears from your EBox.

Aptoide app store for Android

Aptoide is another app store which you can use to install applications. Let’s hit the skip button for the registration part for now. As you can see, another long list of apps waiting for you to download them. Aptoide is almost as popular as Google Play, which makes it a great way to get even more content.

The Entertainment Box is what you make it. Finally a way to take complete control of your entertainment. Unlimited content streaming at your fingertips, displayed beautifully in your living room on the largest screen in the house. The EBox is revolutionizing media, get yours today

Buy Fully Loaded TV Box UK Latest Kodi/SPMC | Fully Loaded Android powered TV boxes

Buy Fully Loaded TV box in the UK from a trusted seller

Over the past few years’ online ‘box’ sellers have taken the term Fully Loaded Kodi / XBMC to advertise “Free Movies, Free Sports, Free TV!”. In this post, we are going to review all aspects of a fully loaded TV box. And we will also review our use of the term “Fully Loaded“. First of all EntertainmentBox® specialises in Android and Windows Powered Smart TV boxes, that are fully loaded with the right software. Enabling you access to apps, games and software updates that are all easily accessible through the internet. We do not load your Kodi full of addons that slow down the performance of your device. It is left completely down to the end user as to which kodi addons or kodi wizard is used.

Fully loaded Kodi / XBMC TV box

Kodi is a very special award winning media centre. That can be installed on most modern platforms it works like any other digital media centre. Allowing the user to play many different media formats. But unlike other media centres that need you to have a hard copy of the media file on a USB or another form of digital storage. Kodi (or XBMC as it was formally known) will allow you to watch content via the internet (streaming). Some online sellers tainted the term Fully Loaded Kodi / XBMC. By advertise Free Movies, Free sports, Free TV. How is this possible? Easy… Let’s take a quick look at how Kodi works.

How Kodi works?

Kodi Media Centre is an application that can be installed onto most platforms. Including Android TV boxesWindows PCiPhone, Apple TV 4. Kodi Media centre allows the use of 3rd party addons, these addons are created by many different developers. Addons can be added either by adding the URL directly into Kodi or by installing a zip file containing the addon. “Most of the addons literally fetch webpages from sites you could have otherwise streamed a video from in a normal web browser”. then prise it into the simplified lists you see in Kodi. These types of addons turn a hard to read or add filled page. Into something you can browse through from your sofa.

Fully loaded TV box on the black market

If you’re thinking about buying a TV box and the seller is offering you Fully loaded TV boxes you need to stop and ask yourself. What are they fully loading onto the device? As the Smart TV box market grows so will the greed from some of these Black-market sellers. Not only will they offer to pre-install many addons that could easily be installed by the end user. But will also install pop-ups and adverts generating even more revenue for the original seller. If you have not seen our Fully loaded Android TV Box warning or the official Kodi TV warning you should definitely have a read. If you purchase a device from EntertainmentBox. Then you can feel assured that your box will not have any of these unwanted addons, pop-ups, or viruses.

What are kodi builds? Kodi setup wizards?

Kodi can be customized with different backgrounds, menu bars, and skins. A setup wizard will customize your Kodi setup in a few clicks. It works by downloading many different addons and backgrounds then installing them all for you. This is called a Kodi build. (a kodi build is what the wizard puts on your device). There are 100s of different kodi setup wizards available. And also many different Android apps that will offer to set up kodi for you. You need to remember that if you decided to use any setup wizard. It will download many different addons so you have no control over what it downloads into your device.

What are fully loaded Android apps?

Fully loaded Android apps are applications that can be installed onto any Android operating system. Including TV boxes, tablets and mobile phones. Apps like “showboxmobdroCartoon HDMegaBox HDNewset Movies HD”, and many other Android applications offer the same or similar content. You can stream content directly through your TV Box onto your big screen TV. Most fully loaded TV box sellers will pre-install these apps before they send them to the customers. We on the other hand will not ship any device with the apps listed above. Again we leave this completely down to the end user.

Is using kodi and streaming legal?

Yes, it is completely legal to stream in the UK and EU if you do not download or store the media. Kodi works by streaming its content so it is not actually downloaded to your device it only streams through it. We have a very detailed post about kodi and just how legal it is

Entertainmentbox Fully loaded TV boxes

Streaming apps for Android

Video streaming is quickly becoming a very big deal. Cable subscriptions are looking less and less like a good deal and there are now tons of ways to enjoy content online. The beauty of streaming is very simple. No downloading. All on hand a click of a button. The rise of streaming apps is getting bigger and bigger. Of course some streaming apps do come with a monthly subscription fee. We take a look at what we think are the best …

EBMC / Kodi

EBox® Media Center is an SPMC fork of Kodi. EBMC, SPMC and Kodi all work relatively the same. However, we have found that EBMC works best with an Android TV powered Box. Kodi is open-source software designed specifically with home entertainment in mind – and it’s totally free. Although it was originally created for the Microsoft Xbox and called Xbox Media Center (XBMC). The software has continued to evolve – spawning a community of its own.

EBMC or Kodi essentially turn an Android powered TV Box into a digital set-top box or streamer. It gives users the ability to stream files from the internet, a home network and local storage. Kodi isn’t held back by licensing or a curated app store.  It lets you download a range of community-made apps, and watch whatever you like.

EBMC’s purpose-built UI makes browsing through your content simple. Thanks to a range of built-in codes, users can browse videos, photos and podcasts quickly and easily.

Plex Client

Plex organizes all of your video, music, and photo collections, and gives you instant access to them on all of your devices. With the free Plex Media Server software on your home computer and Plex for Android. You can enjoy all of your personal media on your device. Plex clients require decent spec to run, which is why an Android TV Box is perfect. Plex is the all-in-one media sharing server that uses your PC to distribute content to any device. Plex essentially acts as a faux-server. It uses your computer and the media you already have as a media hub for devices you grant it access to.

Beyond your own content. Plex has a bunch of different content channels built in for you to use within it. Some of them, like BBC iPlayer, already have good standalone apps for Android. However, it makes sense to have it all in one.

YouTube

YouTube is quickly becoming one of the number one forms of viewing entertainment. Due to the success of E-Sports and such millions of users now watch events live. Thanks to the rise of YouTubers, millions and millions of us watch their content daily.

It’s hard to imagine the world without YouTube, but trust we are old and we remember. We take for granted YouTube, but you cannot deny this … You watch one video, then before you know it. It’s 2 hours later. That’s the magic of YouTube. Complete user created content, all at your fingertips, covering anything you can imagine.

BEST KEYBOARDS AND PRO REMOTES FOR TV BOXES

What is the best Wireless keyboard or Pro remote for your Smart TV box?

In this post we look at what is the best Pro remote or wireless keyboard for your Smart TV box. When it comes to choosing the correct control for your TV box It all comes down to your personal preference, this guide will help you decide what’s the right one for you. We are going to show you exactly what the keyboards and remote’s look like including a YouTube video guide with complete unboxing, review, and demo.

What is the difference between a pro remote and a keyboard?

When we look at a pro remote the main features is they have an Air mouse, this allows you to use your remote in the same way way as a Nintendo Wii controller. With motion-sensing technology it will allow the user to point the remote at whatever you want to select on screen. Whereas the Keyboards have Trackpads allowing you to move your finger over the pad in order select something on the screen.

Do I need a wireless keyboard or pro remote?

“Wireless keyboards, Pro remote’s help you navigate your TV box more easily!”, A TV box is like having an Android based Tablet on your TV the only difference is your TV box has not got a touch screen, It will use your TV as a monitor. Your standard remote that was issued with your device will allow you to navigate around your TV box without any issues. But it can become tedious clicking one box at a time, also moving your cursor from one ends of the screen to the other can take a little while. We do have a guide on how to speed up your on screen cursor if you wanted to know how this can be done.

Do I need a Gamepad for my TV box?

“You only need a gamepad if your going to be playing games on your TV box!”, Without a gamepad you will be limited to what games you can play, as most of the games require a gamepad to be used. We have tested many gamepad’s but only one has been given our seal of approval. its compatible with 99.9% of gaming emulators, has a long life battery, connects using Bluetooth, and has a built in Trackpad. The EBox PG-9028 ipega wireless bluetooth game controller has it all.

Rii i12 Multifunction wireless keyboard

The Rii i12 gets a 10 out of 10 for style. With a very attractive brush steel backing and slink black keys make this keyboard perfect for your coffee table. The size of the keyboard is similar to some smaller notebooks, not full size but a huge step up from most wireless keyboards.

i8 wireless keyboard with built in trackpad

The i8 wireless keyboard features a Mini QWERTY keyboard with multimedia control keys as well as a Built-in high sensitive touchpad. So not only does this keyboard have an ergonomically handheld design that is easy to carry and operate, it also has a built-in removable rechargeable Li-ion battery so you don’t have to worry about constantly buying and swapping batteries.

S77 Pro Remote Keyboard

“The S77 Pro remote Keyboard has a gyroscopic sensor, allowing easy moveability around  your device!”. There are a series of four quick launch buttons on the right side of the remote. They start with the blue “Internet Explorer” button on the second row, bottom right, and moving up towards the top. In addition each button is mapped to a particular Android feature straight out of the box – no configuring required. Also S77 Pro has an IR-learning feature so you can program it just like a regular TV remote. But, the S77 Pro  has a full set of numbers on the top of the remote, as well as four customizable buttons along the bottom row. This actually means you can use the S77 Pro as a replacement universal remote for your television and not lose any functionality.

What’s the best keyboard Pro remote for Android TV boxes Conclusion 

In conclusion the best Wireless keyboard or Pro remote for your Android Smart TV box is down to what you think will work for you. My personal preference is the S77 Pro remote. “it ticks all the boxes with easy use learning function, the fact that you can hold it in one hand and the overall feel it wins the vote from me!”. this is only my personal opinion and others will always have their preferences. Whatever you decide to go for you will not be disappointed as we only stock the best pro remote and keyboards that have been tried and tested to be universal across all platforms.

SIRI REMOTE

 

The Siri Remote that comes with the new fourth-generation Apple TV is way more powerful than the Apple Remote it replaces. It’s fun to use, and mostly intuitive, but we’ve already uncovered some not-so-obvious tips and tricks.

Power up

The Siri Remote has a Lightning port, and comes with a Lightning to USB cable for charging it. Apple says the built-in lithium-ion battery can last “months” on a charge with normal use, but when it’s time to recharge you can just connect it, using the Lightning cable, to your Mac or a USB charger.

 

                       You can see how much juice your Siri Remote has, in general, non specific sense.

To see the battery life remaining in your remote, go to Settings > Remotes and Devices > Bluetooth on the Apple TV. This page features a graphical display of how much battery life is left, but not a percentage or a time estimate to zero (when it’s not plugged in) or fully charged (when it is plugged in).

Home, Jeeves!

The button to the right of the Menu button has a TV icon on it. That’s the Home button. It always goes all the way back to the Apple TV’s main interface, saving you multiple taps of the Menu button, which takes you back one screen at a time.

 

The app switcher is a huge time-saver. Double-press the Home button to use it.

If you double-tap the Home button, you’ll see an app switcher very similar to the one in iOS, showing your recently used apps. Then just use the touchscreen to scroll to the app you want, and click to go there. This is very helpful for jumping from one app to another without having to go back to the main menu.

On and off

The Siri Remote can turn your TV on and off, and if your TV supports HDMI-CEC, it should set itself up automatically the first time you pair your remote. Then, just hold down the Home button and the Apple TV will ask if you want to put it to sleep. Select Sleep to not only put the Apple TV to bed, but also turn off yourtelevision. Once it’s off, press Home again to wake up the Apple TV, while also turning on your TV and selecting the Apple TV’s input

 

Make sure this option in Remotes and Devices is set to On, and CEC is enabled on your TV.

If the automatic setup didn’t happen, it’s a good idea to dig into your TV’s own settings to make sure CEC is enabled—the trouble is, every TV manufacturer gives it their own silly name. My Toshiba TV from 2007 has it under the name Regza Link. Vizio wisely calls it CEC, but Sharp calls it Aquos Link, Sony calls it Bravia Sync, and so on. If you don’t recognize it in your TV’s menus, try searching Google for “[TV manufacturer] enable CEC.”

If your TV doesn’t support CEC at all, you’re not out of luck, because the Siri remote also has IR. Head to Settings > Remotes and Devices > Learn Remote, and you can use the prompts to set it up.

Re-pair

If your Siri Remote becomes unpaired somehow, hold it near your Apple TV, and hold down the Menu and plus buttons. You can only have one Siri Remote paired at a time, but how many of these £65 remote’s are kicking around your house anyhow?

Navigate during playback

As a video is playing, you can scrub forward or backward with the Siri Remote, either by dragging your finger across the trackpad, or press the right side of the trackpad to go forward 10 seconds, and the left side to go back 10 seconds. (Skipping forward obviously doesn’t work during Hulu ads.)

You can even navigate with your voice. Just hold the microphone button and say, “Skip forward 30 seconds,” or “Go back 2 minutes,” or even “Play this from the beginning.” If you just missed a line of dialogue, try, “What did she say?” to jump back to the beginning of the actor’s speech.

 

Extra video options

When you’re watching a video, you can give the trackpad a quick swipe down to access other options, like turning on subtitles, or choosing an AirPlay speaker to send audio to.

Navigating music

If you’re listening to music on your Apple TV, you can hold down the right side of the trackpad to fast-forward and the left side to rewind. You can also press the right side once to skip forward a song, and press the left side twice to go back a track.

After you press Play to start a song, you can still see the rest of the album or playlist by clicking once on the touchscreen. Swipe all the way up for the ellipses (…) button, which holds more options. In true Apple Music fashion, those options vary based on what you’re doing.

Adjust the trackpad speed

I keep accidentally fast-forwarding or rewinding videos when picking up the Siri Remote and brushing the trackpad inadvertently—that thing can be sensitive! No other remote I’ve used with my TV has a trackpad like this, so I’ll just have to get used to picking it up from the bottom. (Insert joke about “holding it wrong” here!)

 

Slow down (or speed up!) the trackpad speed. It defaults to Medium.

Unfortunately, you can’t adjust the sensitivity of the trackpad, but you can tweak how quickly it scrolls through menus, in Settings > Remotes and Devices > Touch Surface Tracking. This defaults to Medium, but you can choose High if you want to really zoom, or low to slow everything down a little.

Force quit or restart

If an Apple TV app freezes, try holding down Menu until you go back to the home screen. To restart the Apple TV, you can go to Settings > System > Restart. But if the whole Apple TV is unresponsive, you can force-restart it with the Siri Remote. Just hold down the Menu and Home buttons together, and let them go when the white LED on the front of the device starts to flash.

What is a UDID?

What is a UDID?

Finding Your Apple Unique Identifier (UDID)

What is the UDID?

Every Apple device has a Unique Device Identifier (UDID), which is a sequence of 40 letters and numbers that is specific to your device. It’s like a serial number but much harder to guess. It will look something like this: 2b6f0cc904d137be2e1730235f5664094b831186.

Why do we need the UDID?

Your iDevice can only install programs that are approved by Apple. Applications in the App Store have been approved by Apple for general distribution, but beta customers get to try the app before it’s in the store. We register your UDID with Apple so they can approve our application especially for your iDevice.

How do I get my UDID?

To get your UDID, you have to plug your phone into a computer and copy it out of iTunes.

Copy/Paste from iTunes

Apple updates their UI pretty often, so the screenshots may not match up exactly, but the core idea here of going to the device page and clicking on the serial number remains the same.

  1. Launch iTunes and connect your iPhone.
  2. In the right pane, locate the information about your iPhone, including its name, capacity, software version, serial number, and phone number

 

 

3. Reveal the Identifier by clicking on Serial Number:.

 

4. Copy the Identifier to your clipboard by choosing EditCopy.

 

Paste the Identifier into an email to [email protected]

We can use this to add your device to the list of devices that can run our apps.

You can sideload Kodi onto any apple device on IOS 9 or higher. The free developer account isn’t technically a developer account at all; Apple simply gives Apple ID Xcode to sideload kodi apple tv 4users, who don’t wish to become a member of the official paid Apple Developer Program, access to Xcode Developer Tools, Xcode beta releases, developer forums, and more.

Most importantly, your Apple ID can be used to “Test on Device”, which essentially means that anyone with a free Apple ID can deploy apps to their iPhones, iPads, and Apple TVs, without relying on a paid developer account.

We recommend using a Wireless USB keyboard with a Touch pad built in. The main model that we recommend using is the Rii mini i12 Multifunction wireless keyboard or the S77 Pro Remote Keyboard and i8 Wireless Airmouse/Keyboard these are the best for any device. These wireless USB keyboards can be bought with all our devices in combo deals or on their own, these are not the only USB device that can used to navigate and use your EBox with. There are many options in USB controllers and almost all USB devices will work with the EBox.
