    Hello people of the internet world..
    I probably need help , what with satellite tv , and i phones and apps . x boxes, android phones , bluetooth , laptops computers , tablets ,, and theyre all different and they all need a huge ammount of learning and reading to get the bloody thing to work .
    Rant end
    now I have another one
    .

    an MXQ box...
    .
    I know theres guides and help and all this stuff that makes my head explode , so i thought id start here.
    I have a box
    and a little remote keypad that goes with it ,
    it did work ..ish
    then my head exploded and I left it
    now im back to see it again ..unexploded
    this is what I have ...

    MXQ
    Android version...4.4.2
    Build number ...MXQ.V2.0.201601260953

    Kernel version ...
    3.10.33
    ubuntu@google-server#1
    tue Jan 26 10:00:23 CST 2016

    That what the box says ...if it means anything...
    i suppose so..

    in it it has some apps
    Mobdro
    Kodi v 15.2
    filmon live tv

    First off is can you update your android version , 4.4.2 is old so see if your able to update o.t.a ( Over The Air ). If no update is available then update kodi to a version that suits 4.4.2 ( probably kodi 16.1 ).
    Terrarium is also a good app for movies and tv

    rico while android 4.4.2 firmware is not the most recent its still fine for use , i use it myself with no issues at all .

    my advice , and judging by your posts above is not to mess with your firmware , there is no need , and if you use the wrong firmware you can end up with even more problems .

    your kodi version at 15.2 can be updated and far more easily . my suggestion is that you remove the non working android apps (kodi ,mobdro etc) , you can of course simply install terrarium app . my suggestion is to install kodi again , your box can only handle up to kodi 16 jarvis , so i would go with that .

    once you learn how to install kodi repos and addons you open up a world of options .

    i have a newbies guide right here in this section , all be it at the start i was using a different box but other than that many things i talk about apply on any box . so i suggest you read that thread from the start , take your ime and digest as much as you can and see if you understand it .
