    Need some help ! I've got a Minix Neo X8-H Plus android box. I'm currently running Kodi 16.1 and have tried to update to Kodi 17 Krypton. I deleted 16.1 first then download 17. When I come to install it is says 'there is a problem parsing the package'. I've tried searching Google for answers, but everything I have tried is for phones or doesn't work ..... can anyone help ?

    Cheers !

    MINIX NEO X8-H Amlogic S802-H Android 4.4.2

    Kodi 17 Krypton requires Android 5.x Lollipop or later to install and run. As for any Android updates for this thing, very likely not, given what it is, i.e. cheapo device from an unknown manufacturer. You probably need to buy a new box that has 5.x or later, if you wish to run Kodi 17 Krypton.

    Basically yes. And for that it must come from the manufacturer, which for this device is unknown. Suggest you contact the vendor and enquire about it.

    Android 4.4.2 will run Kodi 16, but not Kodi 17, that requires Android 5.x or later.
