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

Kodi setup wizards blocked in Kodi 17.0, Kodi builds banned in kodi 2017

Kodi bites back blocking fully loaded wizards and builds.

 

KODI 17 Kodi setup wizards FULLY LOADED WIZARDS KODI ADD-ONS KRYTON 17

 

As you may be aware Kodi 17.0 Krypton is due to be released to the public soon, with this latest release Team Kodi have been hard at work trying to clean up Kodi’s image.

Kodi has been under the spotlight recently because people are fully loading Android boxes with Kodi setup wizards or Kodi builds. Once these wizards or builds are added to Kodi the user will have a choice of Movies, Sports, TV shows, Live TV all with colourful backgrounds to match. Please read this post on exactly what we Fully load on all our smart TV boxes. And why you should be thinking twice about what is fully loaded on your device. “If you want to know how to set up your TV box then visit our setup page here!”.

Now Team kodi has had enough, with the release of kodi 17.0 Krypton. All wizards and builds have been blocked and will fail to install the vital kodi add-ons and backgrounds. All needed to give the end user the effect of a fully loaded Kodi setup.

 

Will Kodi add-ons work with 17.0 krypton

So we know Kodi setup wizards and Kodi builds are being stopped with the latest release of Kodi 17.0 Krypton.

Will Kodi add-ons still work? Team Kodi do not seem to have an issue if you add your own add-ons but seem to only want to stop Kodi setup wizards from working.

You can still add any Kodi addon that you wish with the exception kodi builds or wizards.

Update 30/08/2016

After publishing this post, it has come to our attention that there are in fact Kodi wizards and Kodi builds working with the latest version of Kodi 17.0.

What are Kodi setup wizards / Kodi builds

Over the past few years Kodi setup wizards and Kodi builds have been released by the 100’s. They work by allowing the user to download many add-ons repos and backgrounds with one click. This can be done with the user adding one Kodi add-on that will then install all the rest. Or by installing complete Kodi setup wizard Android apps.

Some users tend to rely on Kodi setup wizards to install new versions of kodi add-ons when they are released. Also to update older versions of existing Kodi add-ons.

 

Best Kodi setup wizard 2016

There are many developers claiming their build is the best kodi setup wizard 2016 or 2017 to try to attract the user to download their wizard.

With names like The Beast Build, The BlackBoxThe HubWizardAres Wizard, KodiMaster Wizard.

All with claims of offering the best user experience, the truth is they all use the same Kodi add-ons but use different backgrounds. (or skins)

Who runs these setup wizards and Kodi builds

Most of the developers behind the building of these setup wizards or Kodi  builds do it as a hobby or to help out the end users fully setup their Kodi without any prior knowledge.

This is exactly what kodi is trying to stop, they want the end user to know how to add Kodi add-ons by themselves. Team Kodi do not like the way an average person with no knowledge can install 100s of Kodi add-ons with one click.

Will other Kodi builds still work?

At the time of writing Kodi 16.1 is still the most recent release of Kodi. All Kodi builds and setup wizards work without any issue. They will continue to work for the time being.

If you take a look back to the days when Kodi 15.2 was released. If you try to install any modern day Kodi add-on into it. You’re more than likely going to encounter “dependency not met!“.

This is because Kodi changes with every new release. With every new Kodi version new dependencies are needed to be met. The developers behind the add-ons now need to take into account these new changes. Then update their add-on to work correctly with the newer version of Kodi. This can stop the add-on running on older versions of Kodi. So eventually in time your favourite add-on could fail to run on older versions of Kodi.

Is this the end of Kodi builds / Kodi wizards?

If you look at how open source Kodi is. You will begin understand that its going to be very hard for Team Kodi to actually stop these Kodi wizards and Kodi builds from running. It’s only a matter of time before a developer works out a way to get the build to install correctly.

Once that happens it will open the flood gates for people to replicate the fix for installing Kodi builds in Kodi 17.0 and above.

Kodi 17.0 development build has been available to download since 10-Aug-2016. Allowing not only users, but Wizard developers and build makers to test.

Conclusion

When Kodi release 17.0 it will be a game changer with how people use Kodi wizards. If you’re planning to update to Kodi 17.0. At the time of writing most Kodi builds, or  Kodi setup wizards in their current form are going to work. We have now learned this can easily be overcome with newer versions of the Kodi Setup Wizard or Kodi Builds.

Kodi 16.1 will continue to work with all add-ons, unless the developer behind that add-on changes something to will stop it working on older versions. It’s not going to be affected for now and you’re Kodi add-ons will continue to work with kodi 16.0 for the foreseeable future.

If you ask me if I think Team Kodi won’t be able to stop setup wizards and Kodi builds for ever.

Team Kodi need to try to tackle the sellers behind the fully loaded TV boxes.

 

 

 

Best Version XBMC, Kodi, SPMC, Kodi, EBox MC, For Android

What's the best kodi for Android

What is the best version of Kodi for Android™?

We always get asked what’s the best version of Kodi for Android, so in this post we will look at what is the best Media centre for your Smart TV box or Phone. If you want to know what Kodi is check out our “Kodi Setup Guideit will explain more about Kodi is and how it works. Kodi formally known as XBMC has many different builds / versions it can become confusing knowing what is the best for your device and what will give you the best performance.

The best version of Kodi for Android is EBox MC

I know you’re thinking it should be Kodi 16.1 right? Well sorry to break the bad news but Kodi has been very slow to develop the Android side of its software, this is mainly due to Pirate Box sellers fully loading Android boxes then selling them on sites like eBay and Amazon. Also the main Android developer (koying) Kodi had working on the team left due to in house fighting. The good news is Koying has now developed his own version of Kodi called SPMC, this solely is a dedicated to Android. SPMC has many features and bug fixes for Android then the official Kodi 16.1 build is offering. Due to the lack of support for Android we are now going to build EBox MC from SPMC not Kodi. Therefore, EBox MC based on SPMC 16.4.2 is by far the best version of Kodi for Android.

What’s the difference between XBMC, Kodi, SPMC, EBox MC

The main difference is the name, “all these media centres work in exactly the same way” you can add 3rd party add-ons allowing you to access content through the internet. They will also allow you to play any media file you have on a local drive. The other main difference is they have different fixes. Kodi will always be the best version if your installing it on Windows or other supported devices. But as I pointed out earlier Kodi is not too keen on supporting Android, so you are better off using our EBox MC as it will perform better on your Android device.

How easy is it to update Kodi to EBox MC?

OTA

It’s very easy if you have one of our smart TV boxes that support our OTA (over the air updates) then you are in luck. If you open your EBox OTA app you will see an update waiting for you, click wipe cache and data then your Smart TV box will update automatically. If you’re only updating your EBox MC from 16.4.1 to 16.4.2 please use the direct download link below.

EBox App

The EBox app for Android, this app will have a direct download link to the latest EBox MC, and also the latest official version Kodi. All you need to do is open the app click on EBox MC link then check your downloads folder, click the EBox MC app to install. The EBox app is a great way for you to easily keep your version of EBox MC or Kodi on the latest Version.

 

EBox MC 16.5.0 Direct download

You can directly download the latest EBox MC with the link below, at the time of writing the current build is 16.5.0. If this changes you can always use the links below, or use your EBox App. If your updating an Android TV box, click the link below to start the download. Wait until EBox MC has fully download then open your file browser app. locate your Downloads folder and click the EBMC app to install.

Older EBox MC Versions 

EBox MC 16.4.2

Conclusion 

If you want the best experience when using Kodi on Android switch to EBox MC. Its faster, has better features and is developed by a very talented Kodi developer that has a passion for Android. Keep up the good work Koying.

We will show you how to shut down Kodi correctly. With this How to Shut down Kodi help guide.

 

Do you have question in mind.  Why sometimes KODI doesn’t start up, or it just displays a black screen ? other symptoms are your Kodi keeps losing your backgrounds or skins.

We would like to ask how you are turning off KODI and your android box at night.  When you are not using the device,  do you  simply press the red ‘Power’ button on the remote no matter what the box is doing at the time .

KODI is like a ‘computer within a computer’. It has its own operating system and that needs to be shut down correctly after each use.

Think of it like using  your PC at work or home. You wouldn’t press and hold the power button on your PC to switch it off with the software  still running.  You would choose SHUTDOWN from the start menu.

If you did, then pretty soon your PC  isn’t going to start up.  It hasn’t had chance to tidy away the files it was using before closing down.

So its same with KODI .

Quick guide

  • When Kodi is open click the power icon in the bottom left
  • Click exit
  • Wait for Kodi to shut down before you switch off your device
