How to install Kodi 17.0 Krypton on Android 4.4 Devices (updated 21/04/2017)
(Kodi 17.1 krypton for Android 4.4 is being developed and will be released very soon)
As you may be aware since the release of Kodi 17.0, anyone running Android 4.4 would have had issues installing the latest Kodi Android app. Not anymore! 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 17.0 that runs on most Android 4.4 TV boxes. Including the MXQ TV box and T8 V2/V3 TV box. If you need any other questions answered check out ourTV box FAQ’s it covers all most common questions.
