  • Kodi 17

    Well the final nail in the coffin of the Tronsmart Draco is on it's way...

    Kodi 17 will require Android 5.0 and will not install on Android 4.X.

    I have it installed on a much better TV box (one that gets updates, OTA updates.... LOL Nice joke on the box...) The interface is leaps and bounds better than Kodi 16.

    I would say maybe this will spur Tronsmart to update the Draco but after 2 years and essentially being on the same firmware since launch... I see that as sxxx in one hand and wish in the other.

    Can't they at least release the encryption keys and let the community update the firmware for free???? I mean did they lose them in a hard drive crash now even they don't have them? lol

        I tried that firmware back when it came out, also remix OS, I haven't tried the Linux... I might try that one before I film a youtube video of me dissecting it with a hammer and voicing my opinion in a most negative manor.

        The "beta" of 5.0 is going to be 2 years old soon.

        The last updates they have are the updates we and other forums have... That is sad...

          Yes Remix and Linux most likely the only options for improvement on these devices. Mine is a door stop(works good as that. ) Allwinner poor support is the cause lesson learned by lots of us.

          Never know someone may try a fix to bring the dead back to life. But in the mean time it still has other uses. Door stop/coffe coaster/Tv browser/phone charger

                I just built a media center PC in my living room (since space isn't a real issue) and got a Shield TV for my bedroom where another PC would occupy too much space.

                I still have this box sitting on a shelf to remind me that buying stuff from China should only happen if it's got some sort of backing from like Nvidia or AMD or some big company.

                P.S. I would be careful running those forks of Kodi, 17.1 is the one that had the security issue, but if your using good hardware you should be on 17.3 now anyway and using the Colossus repo at the time of this writing. Don't get me wrong, I think if you turn off downloading subs your perfectly safe? But I just would be worried anyway.
