    You will also need our Latest Latest IceCube 2 CS968 Firmware we have two different firmwares the only difference is the wifi chip inside the unit. its impossible to determine what wifi chip you have in your Cube just by looking at the outside , I can confirm we have been using AP6210 wifi chips on our cubes for 6 months older devices could be MTK wifi chips.

    Latest MX2 software update Kodi Edition, Download MX2 Firmware

    The following procedure will allow you to  install our Latest MX2 software with Kodi. Full 1080p playback without any issues. Just follow these simple steps. The Latest MX2 software we have available to download is in the form of a .zip file. This means that the file is ‘compressed’ as a single file to make it easier to download. You will need to ‘unzip’ or ‘Extract’ the files from the zip file once downloaded.

    Step 1.  Download the Latest MX2 software with Kodi from the following link:

    UPDATE: We have added a recovery files for everyone who has issues with their mx2 , please follow this guide on how to create a boot card for your Mx2.

    CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE LATEST MX2 FIRMWARE

    Step 2. Get an SD memory card that is at least 1GB in size Unzip or extract the downloaded Latest MX2 software ZIP file to a location on your PC. Once unzipped, you will see you have 3 files. Copy these to your SD memory card.

    NOTE: This step of unzipping/extracting the zip file is very important! On a PC, once you have downloaded the file, you should be able to right click on the zip file and choose ‘Extract all’ then choose a location where you want to ‘Extract/unzip’ the files to.

    Step 3. You should now have 3 files on your SD card called factory_update_param.aml, DroidSticks MX2 15-04-2015.zip and recovery.img. (You do not need to unzip the DroidSticks MX2 15-04-2015.zip now on your card, just leave it as it is)

    NOTE: Please ensure that the 3 files are in the root of your SD card, and not stored within a folder on your SD card.

    Step 4. Slot your SD card into the MX2 box and get yourself a matchstick, wooden toothpick, thin jewelers screwdriver or  a paper-clip. You’ll need this to reset the box.

    Step 5. At the back of the MX2 box you will see a hole labelled ‘AV’. Inside this hole, at the end, is the reset button (told you you’ll need that toothpick!) Insert your chosen device into the hole and you will feel a clicking button at the end. You will need to press and hold this button in a minute.

    Step 6. Ensure you have the HDMI cable plugged in now and the power cable in easy reach with one hand whilst you use your other hand to press the rest button with your reset tool.

    Step 7. Push and hold the reset button using your chosen tool then plug in the power cable, keeping the reset button pressed in during this process!

    Step 8. With the reset button still pressed using your tool, the screen should flash up an opening logo. Keep the reset button pressed until you see the following image of the Android figure stood up:

    Step 9. When you see the Android figure like this, you can remove your reset tool from the AV hole (and put it somewhere safe for next time). The progress bar below the Android figure will move to the right for a bit and then after about two or three minutes you will see a menu screen. Simply choose to ‘reboot now’.

    Step 10. Once rebooted you will see the splash screen. After about a 40 second wait you will see the welcome screen

    Step 11. After this you will be presented with a welcome screen prompting you to take a few steps to setup your WiFi or turn on your Ethernet. Once finished you will be presented with the Android home screen option window. Choose ’3D launcher’ and then choose ‘Always’ below it.

    With this Latest MX2 software with Kodi you will need to go to all Apps and select Kodi.
