For those that have not updated their kodi to 15.2

When a ‘final’ version is launched newer and more effective bugs and/or problems usually appear from nowhere, and last release wasn't any exception. Despite the fact that hundreds of 1000's of customers were already testing the 15. version before release so we try very difficult to prevent them, the moment million began utilizing it, some problems we either didn't think about or which we didn't notice put their hands up. To counter a few of these new issues, we’re getting you this second maintenance release 15.2 that has extra fixes on the top from the 15. and 15.1 release.

It ought to be alright to just install this on the top of the current Kodi 15. or 15.1 version. For that MySQL customers available we never bump the database versions within our bugfix or maintenance releases - you are able to securely carry on using it in your network. Safe just backup your userdata (online manual) first.

Most significant fix done

With time the Android version has travelled some bumpy streets. This really is because of the very fact you will find hundreds of 1000's of various products available with every it’s own Android version and every a rather different firmware and hardware. Firmware may be the part in which the manufacturer from the device needs to make certain the everything works because it should like video and audio output. This time around following the 15. release it grew to become obvious that for many products utilizing an Amlogic chipset there is a general change in firmware that triggered Kodi not to function correctly and just show a zoomed in or only used area of the screen. Products that originated from producers which had correctly up-to-date their firmware was without this issue. But also for some this never happened and triggered all of the problems you may have experienced. One way ended up being to put special build firmware around the device which fixes the issue and Kodi would certainly work fine again. Sadly this can be a quite technical process and may brick your device otherwise done correctly. Fortunately a residential area developer invested considerable time in searching for the issue and along with our primary Android developer found an answer for fixing this.

In a nutshell, we’ve solved the issues for that customers which had the zoomed in or partial screen using Kodi in Android. As a result we incorporated these changes in to the 15.2 build for each someone to make sure hopefully obtain device working again.

Next some playback problem put their hands up for a lot of Android customers where they lost video after fast-forward playback. This will are in possession of been correct too.
