Android Mattrix XBMC/KODI Image - V3.1

share by mattrix

It's been a long time coming, but I finally got around to creating a new XBMC Image

Here are the main features:

  • Latest KODI 14.0

  • Auto-setup of KODI, MX Player & SMB Wrapper

  • Autostart KODI on boot

  • SMB Wrapper to allow playback of Network files

  • 720p & 1080p Versions Available

  • HIDRaw and Joystick Drivers + XPAD module loaded on boot

Both images playback videos fine, but the 720p image is quite a bit faster in the GUI. The latest KODI is now capable of playing back most videos I tried natively. However, it is still using quite a bit of CPU and may not playback everything. I therefore decided to use MX Player for playback for a more consistent user experience.

V3.1 720p (297 MB)!uIxBFbYY!NAlXzkLFpvEkgevM3VyHfYK6ZKfVW7MJPcAtPtqEhOc

1080p (297 MB)!WIhUSJZA!RfpRGGHn6L0HQF2gdDlYqQtOs-DwVNLBVVrQxltqJGw


  • Unzip image & burn with PhoenixCard

  • Boot, and then wait.... (about 1-2 mins)

  • KODI will automatically start (signalling the end of the installation process)

  • That's it.

  • If using 1080p version, exit KODI and set 1080P in Android Display settings

KODI is setup to use SMB Wrapper / MX Player for network files and to use MX Player for any local files. You can easily edit or remove the playercorefactory.xml file in sdcard/Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/userdata folder. To disable KODI autostart, remove sdcard/Android/data/mattrix/autostartkodi
