    I know the RK3288 will get Nougat support soon that was released before the RK3368 chipset and it's upgrade version RK3399(with built-in hard-drive bay) will launch with Nougat next month.
    I'm currently working on custom Nougat firmware for RK3328 NT-N9, the upgrade version of RK3368 NT-V8 with full Kodi 18 support and it works great.
    Double WOW!!!

      Can you try Kodi 18 here?

      They fixed some Dolby Digital bug on Denon reveivers and it should work for other receivers too in above Kodi.

      Maybe you have the same problem of videos quiting?
      Latest Kodi 18 can solve the samba problem of videos quiting.

      If you play the same videos with MXPlayer or 'Video' player, is the Dolby Digital audio correct then and it is only a problem in Kodi/FTMC?

      I'm surprised by Kodi 18, it works very well even deinterlacing works automatically.
      I think it can be used instead of other Kodi's in my ROM since RKMC/FTMC is not needed on RK3368 as it doesn't support advanced features like 10-bit, HDR or VP9 anyway.
      mo123 Kodi 17 and 18 reboots my Ugoos UT4 all the time , only your version, RKMC 16.1 works fine for me.

            Nope, a "HPH NT-V8" - Most excellent and underrated machine!

            • Hi,

              I'm trying to flash this ROM (v1.5) for the first time on my Zidoo X6 Pro running stock 1.45 firmware provided by Zidoo. However, the box is not getting recognized by my PC when I connect the OTG port on the Android box to the PC.

              I have checked (enabled) the following
              • Developer Options -> Enable USB debugging
              • Settings -> USB -> Connect to PC

              and followed the instructions (connect the OTG cable, keep the reset button pressed and connect power to the Zidoo X6 Pro). Yet, the device is not getting recognized. I have checked the cable and the USB port separately, to work fine.

              What am I doing wrong? Can someone please help? I'd very much love to install this ROM.

              Thanks.

                Did you install the drivers?
                Then follow this guide

                  Firstly, thank you for replying immediately with help, I tried a number of steps on both Windows and Linux, but of no avail.
                  1. Yes, I did install the drivers (on Windows 10 Pro). However, the device is not getting recognized. I opened up Device Manager to check for names with Unknown/Rock device, but none was displayed.
                  2. I tried setting these as well: SUPPORTLOWUSB=TRUE and FULLSPEEDUSB=TRUE, in the config.ini file for the Rockchip tool, but still didn't get recognized
                  3. Then I tried DriverAssistant and FactoryTool from your tip. That didn't work either.
                  4. To verify it's not an issue with Windows, I connected the device to a Linux machine and tried with Rockchip Linux Upgrade Tool as well (git clone https://github.com/geekboxzone/lollipop_RKTools.git). Instructions from http://www.hotmcu.com/wiki/Flashing_..._Rockchip_Tool. That does not recognize either.
                  5. I did verify that the RK3368 box does go into Recovery mode with both Windows and Linux when keeping the reset pin pressed, connecting to PC, followed by connecting power
                  6. Since none of the above worked for me, I tried one last step of creating a upgrade disk (sd card). Instructions from http://chinagadgetsreviews.com/downl...tool-v1-4.html. On booting with this, the display is just blank. I patiently waited for 20 minutes before removing power to ensure I don't brick the device while the flash might be getting updated. Rebooted to see the firmware was booting stock! So nothing had happened. I tried this process twice, but with the same result.


                  I'm clueless now. Would it possible to make an update.zip file that we can flash from recovery? There is some updater script and other files that details what goes into which partition etc., but I'm not good with the internals. If you can guide me, I can try to make one (hopefully I don't brick it though)!
