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 16.4.2 Direct download

You can directly download the latest EBox MC with the link below, at the time of writing the current build is 16.4.2. 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.

Click to download EBox MC 16.4.2 for Android

When you move the firmware files to an SD card they have to be placed on the home directory of the SD card. Most files will look something like this.

  • factory_update_param.aml.
  • you will have a .zip update file.
  • recovery.img.
  • u-boot.bin.

Place them directly onto your SD card (the files have to be the first thing that opens up when the SD card is read by the device they cannot be in a folder or a zip file).

Update your Smart TV box

  1. Download the correct Firmware for your device
  2. unpack the files onto a SD card.
  3. Do not unpack the.zip file inside the firmware.
  4. Put the SD card into your device and put your device into recovery.
  5. You will see the update should start automatically.
  6. If for some reason it did start automatically,  try to not put your device in recovery the select update from EXT and locate the .zip file on your SD card.
  7. The recovery menu should now be shown and the device should update.
  8. Your device will go to a black screen after the boot video this is normal and your device will boot up after a few minutes.

Each Android TV box has its own specific set of software, called the firmware. Like any piece of technology, it’s important to keep it updated. Android TV boxes usually come with the latest firmware versions that are available. The trouble is, that firmware can become out of date as fast as you can say “Google Update.”

Firmware is what is needed in most electronic devices today. But what is it exactly and what makes it so crucial for products to run smoothly?

For starters, firmware is essentially the programming needed for certain devices to perform their designed tasks.

Unlike software, we don’t use firmware to perform specific activities on devices, but instead use it for their main functions.

Because of this, firmware updates are occasionally needed to make sure the device operates the way it should, as bugs are fixed and programs are altered for consumer benefits.

Install Kodi onto Windows PC Windows Device

This is How to Install Kodi onto Windows PC Windows Device I’ve put together a detailed video that will walk you through how to install Kodi on Windows 8 step-by-step, but you can also follow along with the article below if you prefer a little more detail.

New quick and easy kodi install guide Windows

  • Download the latest Kodi  for Windows
  • Click the Kodi file you downloaded to start the Installer
  • Click  the “Run” button.
  • When prompted click “Next” 
  • Once completed click “Finish” to close the Installer.
  • Done

Kodi System Requirements for Windows

There are a few system requirements for being able to run Kodi on Windows.

First, you’ll need at least Windows Vista, although Windows 7 or Windows 10 is recommended for hardware video decoding. If you’re one of the holdouts still running Windows XP, it’s time to make the switch.Most newer graphics cards are supported. These include the ATI Radeon R420, and the NVIDIA GeForce 6-series. Although the team at Kodi recommends at least an ATI Radeon R700 or a GeForce 8 series card.

Downloading Kodi for Windows

Downloading Kodi is going to be the same for any system. There is a download page for Kodi here  which lists every available Kodi versions, grouped by the system it runs on.

As you can see from the picture above, you’ll be looking for the blue Windows icon on the left hand side of the screen.

Underneath the file is a link to the installation file that you’ll click on to download the file. The Windows file is just under 70MB, so it may take a few minutes to download, depending on your Internet connection.

Install Kodi onto Windows PC Windows Device

Once the file is downloaded, navigate to your download directory. By default this will be the “Downloads” folder. If you open up a File Explorer window (which should be pinned to your taskbar in both Windows 7 and Windows 8), you’ll see an icon for the Downloads folder there.

Once you find the file, double-click on the installation to begin.

 

From there the Kodi Setup Wizard will take you through the installation. There are a couple different components you can choose to install, such as adding Audio Encoder Add-Ons, PVR Add-ons and some different Skin Add-ons. If this is your first Kodi installation, I recommend keeping the default components.

Finally, you’ll be able to choose your installation path. The default path is C:\Program Files (x86)\Kodi, but you can change that if you prefer to install your programs some place other than your boot drive, like I do.

After those few choices, you’ll choose whether to add a shortcut and Start Menu program group. Then the set up process will take you through the remainder of the installation. The entire process should take 1-2 minutes to complete, depending on the speed of your PC.

Kodi on Windows first boot

Once the installation is finished, click on the new Kodi icon in the Start Menu. If you’re running Windows 8, you may want to pin Kodi to the task bar so you have easy access. To do this, right click on a Kodi icon and select “Pin to Task bar.”

Once you start the program, you should see the Kodi home screen pictured below.

We recommend using a USB keyboard with a Touch pad built in. The main model that we recommend using is the i8 wireless keyboard or the RC12. our latest remotes are the S77 pro and the F10 prothese are the best for all devices This USB keyboards can be bought with all our devices, this is definitely not the only USB device that can used to navigate and use your Droidsticks Streaming Box with XBMC.
