How To Update Kodi On Android TV Box

How To Update Kodi On Android TV BoxThis article will teach you how to update Kodi on Android TV Box by using Google Play Store that comes installed with most devices.

Most of the time when you purchase an Android TV Box, it will more than likely have Kodi loaded but it will be out of date.  Since Kodi comes out with new updates on a frequent basis, this will probably be one of the first things that you will want to do when you boot up your new Android TV Box.

I am a huge Fan of the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick and unfortunately, the process to update Kodi on those devices isn’t as easy as an Android TV Box.  The reason for this is because the Fire TV doesn’t include Google Play Store and they also don’t allow Kodi within their Amazon App Store.  This is a huge benefit of owning an Android TV Box as they are easy to update Kodi.  I wrote a guide on how to update Kodi on Fire TV or Fire TV Stick and you can use that to update your Amazon device if you have one.

Below, you will find the steps necessary on how to update Kodi on Android TV Box.  You will also find a video as well that I recommend you watch for a more detailed process.  As of this tutorial, the latest update is Kodi 17.6.

Will PIA. VPN work with Android TV boxes?? I have a paid subscription with them already. I have an older MXQ Android box that I would like to update, but really don’t want to have to buy yet another VPN service

I’m getting a Parsing Error on my StreamBox. Is the Android system outdated?

I set my android box back to factory setting and installed the Durex Kodi as stated in your video. Took me awhile to figure out how to remove the background slideshow but did that. The problem I am having is with Placenta and no streams – still. I’ve emptied Cache and done everything I can think of but still having this problem I just don’t understand why it’s doing this. Terrarium way too slow to open and use. Frustrated. PS I’m a 72 year old women and can follow simple instructions on the computer but I’m no tech

Hi Troy. I have an Android box that is version 4.4.2 and I cannot update it to Kodi 17.6. How do I go about updating it? It is currently on the Pulse build but nothing works on it anymore. Should I start with a factory reset of Kodi as in your supercharge video? Please help. Thank you!

Hi Troy. I have a bit of a problem. I tried to add the Durex Build on my android box. I followed the video steps and all seemed to be well. However after seeing that the new settings were not working at all I realized that I didn’t have Kodi 17.6 on my box. I have Kodi Isengard 15.2 and an android version of 4.4.2. I tried to put everything back to the original settings but that won’t work either since I’m guessing in the two years of automatic upgrades I was getting to have my box where it was… Read more »
