    Takes 15 minutes tops to install kodi and the tvaddons which auto installs all the popular addons.

    That's why they sell them for $60 on eBay.

    Anybody running a build these days? If so what's the best one now? I have run the Beast, SilentROM and others in the past.

    Thanks

Problem is, when you put a new build on from the Beast family [That is where the Royalist comes from] it pretty much wipes your box clean and it's like a brand new install. Which I put a lot of time into each and every box I sell. With this new Royalist install, the settings look just like the old 16.1 settings and not the 17.1 look I was so hesitant about and uncomfortable changing to. Today looks like a good day.
    For those that haven't yet-take 15 mins and install KODI 17.1--all of your addons and favorites carry over automatically. Runs smoother and has more streaming options

    I had a difficult time installing 17.1 on my boxes and sticks after the April 1st prank. You need a mouse or an app that gives you mouse capabilities now. At least the normal way. TV addons with show you how to do it without but your stuck with all their advertisement residue when you're finished. I've finally figured out how to make a backup of Kodi and it's now simple as pie to install my builds onto new or old sticks and boxes. In fact, if you've purchased from me in the past and would like me to do all the work and install not only 17.1 but the new Royalist and don't mind sending me your boxes or sticks I'll do it for nothing. You just cover my shipping cost back to you. Not only will you have all the latest apps but I go into the settings and adjust most all of them so they are running well including the latest Exodus app so the search time has been cut down from 30 to 18 seconds, the bad movie links have been removed and I set it now to auto play so that once it finds your streams it plays the best feed for you. Cuts your click time in half from finding a movie to it actually playing on your screen. I do that with 5-6 other movie apps as well. And adjust your YouTube settings so whenever you play a YouTube video in any app, they play instead of getting the error message a lot of people experience. Other app settings are adjusted as well.

    The problem I was experiencing was you could install 17.1 simple enough, and all your addons stayed, but the minute you installed [The Royalist in my instance] it wiped your addons clean and they all needed to be reinstalled individually. Took me 2 hours per stick. That 2 hours is now 20 minutes from the time I plug it into the time I log out. Had a friend help me and I owe him dearly.

    You may get along with 16.1 on your sticks for a while but eventually, you will need to upgrade as like in any other new version of Kodi, all the apps are designed to run best on the new build. Pretty soon very few apps actually work.

    Stop using Kodi period.

    Download the Appstarter App, thats a real Amazon App. Then load SPMC. It is so much smoother and faster than Kodi it isnt even funny. Also no issues with add ons as its updated whenever major issues happen.

    As for builds, if you still use them Wookie is decent, they dont update it a lot (last ones were 1-5 and 2-17, but the add ons all update better than other builds. Fire TV Guru isnt bad either and it gets updated a little more than Wookie. Has a different lay out guys would have to get used to.

    I upgraded my Kodi to 17.1 and I changed my build to Spinz TV Hard Nox and it's been working great over the past 2-3 weeks since I did it. Took me about 15-20 minutes to install 17.1 and Hard Nox. Exodus, Streamhub, and Smoothstreams.tv are running great, much better than with 16.1.

    Bushay-What's the Royalist?
    Royalist is a build from the guys who distribute the Beast. It's a very simple build, but slim and fast for the firesticks. Comes with about 10 addons and then I add my own I feel my customers will enjoy most. A small variety of everything. Then I back it up or clone it myself. In other words, and I've never looked at it like this before, but it's my own build after I'm thru with it. It lacks very little. Cleaning tools, movie apps, cooking, sports, cams, all the popular apps that are of interest to most. 3 shortcuts on the main page to movies, tv shows, and the Smoothstreams app. Then another for the rest of your addons and then your settings. Very very simple and fast.

    You missed SALTS and Madstreams. Madstreams has about a thousand IPTV lists so you will find everything on them. Only issue is youre going to have ot dig around and know what network you need. But once you find a few add them to Super favorites. A lot of the streams are full 1080 also and no buffering because there are so many lists that the likelihood of too many people using a random one you click through are pretty slim.

    Prosport no good now they only have 2 feeds for off network games and neither of them work. Its OK if its a TNT or a CBS or a network game but there arent nay local streams anymore on it.

    Because you guys never used it right. Salts has 1080 feeds for 85% of the current TV shows now. Exodus has maybe 2 or 3 shows I watch with 1080. Sometimes you have to deal with Turkish subtitles on those better feeds but unless the show has the need for English subtitles it isnt an issue. SALTS also better organized. The My calender > then Episodes that Exodus has. If you dont have Trakt linked to anything then I dont know. Then youre fumbling around in random sections looking for shows you want no matter what app you use.

    I dont watch hockey so that might be true but I havent found a single baseball feed on there for anything that isnt on a major feed somewhere.

    Only thing I watch these days live is cycling anyway, and even then its only half the time as Eurosport shows replays a half dozen times.

    At this point its all rudimentary. It should be second nature for people using these things now. There really arent going to be any bigger or better add ons coming out. Theyre all going to be using the same basic feeds, and that is all that matters. Unless some set up their own servers, which isnt likely unless they plan on charging then the scrapers are going to be what matter most. For TV and Movies anyway. And for movies that are still in theaters no matter what source you use theyre all pulling from the same crappy Cam footage someone took and is being disseminated through a dozen add ons and a few thousand links.

    My friend just got one of these from Amazon and he has buyers remorse. These are for people who have the time to constantly update and search. If you want to use it like DIRECTV and get 1080 pic quality, it's not for you.

    Kodi and SPMC are under fire UK just banned loaded boxes a couple weeks ago. Made streaming illegal too. Matter of time before it hits here probably. But APKs are the thing of the future. Theyre "apps' like Kodi and SPMC are but theyre direct (like Kodi and SPMC) so you dont need to go into a third party app.

    I mentioned them awhile ago but since people couldnt figure out Kodi I wasnt sure they could handle APKs. But theyre a lot more stream lined now.

    Basically get the Downloader App from the Amazon store, that one is legit Amazon so its easy to get from the sotre, and its free.

    Then download the Aptoide Apk. Thats basically Google playstore for legal and 'illegal' Apps.

    There are still no 'best' yet. And youre not going to find any APKs/Apps that list the games youre looking for. But like I have said if you can find the channel theyre on then you can get them. BT and Sky Sports are the most obvious ones. You might not find every single local game (like you can with some Kodi Apps) but youll find most of the major games and theyre going to be in at least 720 through the APKs. And no buffering.

    But for sports youre going to want to start with:

    PTV sport
    Live TVNet
    ct-stream
    UkTvNow
    Solid Streamz
    WSS (cant get that through Aptoide yet so yu have to use downloader to go to the main page)
    http://www.doctor-dance.net

    Some of those have collateral Live Tv feeds also. SO basically like having a satellite system.

    Youre also going to want to get the mouse toggle (if its not built in) that lets you turn the Fire remote into a cursor which youre going to need. Or get a wireless remote, or if youre close to the TV you can hardwire a mouse into it. I would do that as youre setting up since its faster than the mouse toggle on the remote.

    For movies and TV shows youre going to want

    Terrarium TV (if you favorite them you get Amazon notifications on all the new episodes so you can keep track)
    PoPcorn Time
    ShowBox
    Mobdro


    Those are all basically the same so theyre sort of redundant but some load new episodes sooner than others.

    Also going to want MX Player (legit Amazon/Google Play app) but load it through Aptoide since sometimes its not available. And will need BJ Player. Those are the players that allow playing from the Apps above.

    Kodi and SPMC are still nice to have but internet companies here are throttling down speed and volume for people using them. If you have a VPN it helps. But if youre splitting up your viewing between Kodi/SPMC and APK streaming its better, and a VPN obviously hides it all.

    Thats important for guys who are using Smootstreams because they dont allow you to use a VPN for some reason. That was another thing I didnt like about them (other than having to pay)

    APKs are easy to update because Amazon or Aptoide will give you notices on when they need it and they take literally 10 seconds to do. And the quality of the feeds is as good (without having to search or save the best feeds constantly) as any youre going to find through add ons. And there isnt any buffering generally. depending on internet speed. APKs also take up MUCH less space than any build youre going to find for Kodi or SPMC. Biggest ones are ~100 MB. Pulse build depending on how many extras you add is now over 1.4 GB. Doesnt take long to start using up your 5.6 GB (depending on your box and if you have any external storage) if you start saving a bunch of crap inside those builds.

    There will be the usual tutorials on youtube

    yeah kodi and the third party stuff been illegal there for a couple weeks. APKs are OK though thats why theyre getting amped up recently. Theyre basically apps from the amazon store or google play IPTV isnt illegal sharing the streams are, similar to pirating movies. WATCHING them was never illegal only distributing them. But UK made watching them illegal. Weird for them but whatever. I suspect it will probably be hardcore for awhile then they will treat it like gambling where they will look the other way for the bettors but still try and bust the bookies.

    Hey Wanti....can you give me an update on the SALTS app. A friend of mine was having problems pulling in streams and I know that you seem to know the interworkings of that one better than most. Or me anyways. I went and looked myself and I'm finding a lot of the same issues. I have a Trakt.tv account set up but it didn't seem to matter. And I know you used this app a lot at one time but posted something I'm too lazy to scroll back and find in this thread about it having some recent issues. Can you post again what you currently know about what's going on with the SALTS app? Thanks.

    Was an original box buyer. So read about the new Kodi etc. Asked Bushay if I could take advantage of upgrade. All he asked for was shipping. I paid 20 (Bushay says they ripped me off.LOL) and put 10 in box for return. That was on last Monday. By Wednesday got a text saying box would be there Saturday. It was with a 5$ bill. I don't know if you can beat that.

    I am one of the idiots that can't comprehend this stuff so thank you Bushay.

    Wanti: I'm the idiot friend who couldn't get Salts to work. Hooked it up to my Trakt TV like you nicely helped me with. But I mistakenly hit the default button in settings so don't know if that is an issue. Mine reads the same as Bushays still. All it does it kick me out of Kodi half the time though. When not i just get a scraper time out message.

    This was happening before i started screwing with it which I shoudln't have done.

And I know you used this app a lot at one time but posted something I'm too lazy to scroll back and find in this thread about it having some recent issues. Can you post again what you currently know about what's going on with the SALTS app? Thanks.
    I havent looked in awhile have been off SPMC and Kodi for a little bit now mostly all APK/Android apps now.

    But I can go see whats up and if its working. I know Trakt was having issues yesterday which causes problems for all the add ons not just SALTs. A lot of 404 errors for Trakt itself. My wife still uses SPMC because its tracks stuff better and she had problems with Trakt errors. Just checked it. I saw that the Source Sorting preferences were reset/eliminated. So that might be an issue they want to check out. If they know how. Basically go to add ons highlight SALTS, click the triple bar button on the remote (menu bar) go down to add on settings, click right 7 times to Source Settings, Enable Sort Sources then 1st Sort Key Quality best to worst, 2nd Sort Key Debrid best to worst, 3rd Sort Key Source best to worst. Then while theyre in there they can check scrapers. Thats really the most important thing but so many have changed now I am not up on the best ones anymore, plus alot have gone to pay or 'free' sign up/pairing so I just ignore those. But as long as they offer a G Video feed theyre good.

    But its all about APKs now direct apps so on the same level as Kodi which is technically an app, but an open source one.

    Basically to get the best APKs/APPs you download droid buddy (which is akin to Ares wizard) and you then add all the best apps direct to your box. You will also want mouse toggle app unless you have a wireless mouse, and you will need a few players like MX and MX Codec (you need both versions) and BJ player. Those are basically the supports (similar to program add ons in Kodi)you need then you add apps that function like add ons in kodi. Those are fairly short list. I mentioned a few before but basically Mobdro, Terrarium, UK TV now, FreeFlix, Solid Streams, E Doctor, WSS (2.1), PTV Sport (very similar to Solid Streams), Live Net TV. Those are really the must haves. Others that are good are more support ones like Aptoid (similar to Droid Buddy) but you have to search the apps out while Droid Buddy has them listed (like Ares) in order of popularity or download number, and Downloader which is similar to ES File Explorer, but its a direct search engine downloader for your Amazon Box so no messing around with saving to favorites or deleting zip files, also better since most places have direct APK links (which is what a zip file is holding anyway) and they just load direct to the box.

    With Kodi getting run in the UK and Europe plan on seeing the APK direct Add on 'market' explode. Still all free, there are some paid opes obviously but the free ones are much more reliable than even the better Kodi ones.

    A stream box is a stream box and as long as it opens a stream it doesnt matter. But it still better to have good sources. Only issue right now with a few of the TV and movie APKs is they have ads which are annoying but if you add an ad blocker APK (didnt list that) they disappear, or you can get 'lite' versions which dont have ads either.

    Yeah VPNs are going big now too. Wont mask your usage but it masks what youre streaming.

    APKS actually use less data than running through Kodi because it eliminates the need to run Kodi in the background. So running direct Apps or APKs will eliminate SOME of the data usage. But if you want to be 'sneaky' just get an Amazon Prime account and then claim youre streaming those options. They would have a hard time proving otherwise.

    Some of the good ones are actually on Google play but most arent. Not sure what ones I listed are on google play beyond the service ones.

    For the pervs droid buddy has a lot of porn apps too (buried the lead there maybe)

    Yea its going to get better I think. I also suspect more companies are going to try and make it illegal everywhere then try and charge for streaming. But unless they really prosecute people to insane amounts its not going to stop it. The fines would have to be extreme as well. I doubt anyone would go to jail but you never know how crazy things get when they get out of control.

    Streaming is here to stay mostly because of mobile devices and TVs and hoke usage just gets the benefits.

    They just havent figured a way to monetize it for themselves yet. Other than relying on fear or integrity. Problem is the most people utilizing streaming are smart enough to know neither of those will work and are smart enough to get around any of the pay walls they might have.

    There are also a lot of smart anti establishment guys out there who do it all for free and fun and like the challenge of making things work that get shut down. So as long as theyre having fun there are always going to be free options. Thats what its really all about now. Never really been about the money you save for free TV but the challenge of beating the system.
