Reinstall it.

Don't know how ?

The uninstall option should be at the same place as force stop. Unless it's installed as a system application.

Which box is it?

play store, uninstall, then re install. ive found 14.2 helix as the most stable. you can download individual versions as the one from playstore will auto update to the newest version, which is not always a good thing.

You can disable auto updates in the play store. I always do

tbh, if you dont even know how to reinstall an app, then kodi is going to be a nightmare for you.

I guess it's just the development cycle. On Helix myself.

what problems did you have with kodi 15.2? The only problems I have is occasional lockouts and a very minor audio sync problem which I corrected in the default sync options once.

Use the web browser on the box and go here http://www.tvaddons.ag/tvmc-android/
Download that version it comes with most of the best addons your video, music, programs.
Its either that or you will have to install the addons seperately.

I just found it abit laggy. 14,2 helix is just smoother imo and just works so I see no need to change up. I'll probably change up to 15 when all/any issues have been ironed out but again, I don't think it has features I want/need so again, no point upgrading.

kodi has become so easy these days due to some amazing people making some quality builds, already and set up for end users. I find some of them abit overkill but for someone starting out, it takes away the hassle of the initial set up.

Point to note if you use the Backup / restore facility. Spent countless hours trying to work out why my brother kept restoring only to lose all the changes he had made to aeon nox etc

turns out backup doesnt restore the user interface settings so make sure you copy the guisettings.xml file to the kodi userdata folder from the backup userdata folder after doing a restore!

As much as I love kodi, its pretty dire when it comes to live football streaming. Tried all the main addons and their channels for last nights champions league and most didnt work or were old VHS tape quality at best. Pretty understandable now kodi is becoming ever popular and it was the champions league.

Might have to investigate paid IPTV.......

any recommendations for monthly payment plans?

what about when you just C/P the folder into another device? ive not lost settings when ive done that and didn't have to copy guisettings or anything.

I use Ruya for my sports. paid add on with all the sports channels inc 3pm games!! in HD!! first few weeks were ropey but they found out that someone had been hacking the server. since that's been sorted, its been perfect mate. sometimes been watching on various channels via ruya all day and apart from the odd buffer its streams perfectly.

copying the entire userdata folder will work too
