Showbox is asking for an update again! Has anyone had a go at it and if so is it still working as usual? Can't do without it!

are you on Talk Talk? heard it's blocked on there.
I haven't updated from V2.5 yet as the new permission was "fine location" and there's no legit need for that. I'll upgrade when I get something with KitKat on so I can pick and choose permissions.

Can you still use it without the update?
re:lukeykey - vpn is an obvious option.

I have been, there was one major one a few months ago there was no getting around because I think they encrypted everything.

Can you not use it whilst switching off your location options from the phones settings?
#6
Search for it on aptoide store and reinstall an earlier version... should resolve

Not been able to watch anything last few days on phone with EE, was hoping this might fix it but after doing update still getting " this video cannot be played " message.

My V2.5 is not showing the updated programmes now so looks like I will have to update. It won't know my location as I have no GPS it's a TV stick on mobile broadband. I just didn't want to update on principal.
#13
Few others to consider that cannot get Showbox to work.
For those on KitKat OS devices there is Popcorn time, (not tried this as don't have KitKat)
XBMC, back up if Showbox goes down.
Videomix Pro, has cam version of movies.
For PC, youtubeonfire or g2g.fm.

Looks to me that the update was to raise more revenue from advertising. No getting rid of the banner at the bottom by clicking on it. Seems I'll have to investigate adblockers. May mean routing though :-(

No using it through virgin media, a friend has the same problem also, tried with vpn but still no luck. Really confused.

Showbox is great but seems really slow in the buffering of streams now compared with a few months back for me. Never used to have a problem with the High quality before but have to wait a bit now for them to load up and occasionally they do stutter

Still a superb app though :)

Can't live without it? You need to go outside.

Doesn't work on Virgin mobile. Only shows the 1 season and nothing else.

adblocker plus working nicely it seems with no root. Try Spotflux VPN for blocked access and try MXplayer if it says video wont play.

I'm on a samsung s4 and showbox version 2.9 and it's asking me to update but all feeds only mention version 2.5. I'm on talk talk at home and 3 mobile. Not updating until it breaks
#22
I'm on 3.1 and all seems fine, but my tablet is playing up on a few apps at the moment - Spotify fails quite often and Tunein radio doesn't always work - Are other people getting updates every day from Showbox still? Mine hasn't had any updates for nearly a week now - I think it's a tablet error though...
#23
Just tried to update my showbox and now it wont work."connection error Check internet connection" keeps popping up and app is blank no movies or show appear. But im on my WiFi so there is definitely a connection. Is there anyway I can fix this issue?

I have the same problem.
Cant get it to work at home on my Virgin Media wifi but will work on my work network.
Did you find a solution ?
What speed are you on ?
The funny thing is the friend who put me onto Showbox is on Virgin too & his works like a dream.
#36
Drop down to 3.1 and you should be able to carry on don't update . Down load,then drag over to a hard drive delete off phone and then start again all films will play. If when you drag it on to a hard drive and the film has no pic in the film box an error has accured while down loading try again
#37
If your on virgin media , go to your web account and disable parental control .. This works for sure..
