If you compare TV boxes you will see most are in fact running 5.0 or above. These devices would run the latest Kodi/ EBMC without any issues. But for users with older 4.4 devices, Kodi Krypton would fail to install. In this post, we are going to show you how to easily install Kodi 17 Krypton on Android 4.4 devices.

Due to a good development team, over at Mygica, they have managed to come up with a tweaked version of Kodi 17.3 that runs on most Android 4.4 TV boxes. Including the MXQ TV box and T8 V2/V3 TV box.
