      ūüĒ•ūüĒ•ūüĒ• Upgrade to Kodi 17.3 Krypton to Patch Major Security Flaw (24/May/2017) ūüĒ•ūüĒ•ūüĒ•   05/24/2017

      Upgrade to Kodi 17.3 Krypton to Patch Major Security Flaw (24/May/2017) ¬† We‚Äôre very sorry to have to bring you this news, but upgrading¬†Kodi¬†to the latest version (released today) is fairly urgent if you wish to keep your network secure. Earlier today, a security flaw within¬†Kodi¬†(and other media players including VLC) was reported by researchers from Check Point Software Technologies. They demonstrated that an attacker could gain control of any¬†Kodi¬†device through the use of malicious code placed within subtitles. Hypothetically, if an infected subtitle file were to be downloaded by¬†Kodi, it could give a hacker full control over your device. This is particularly concerning when it comes to automatically downloaded subtitles. It is very important that you upgrade¬†Kodi¬†as soon as possible, otherwise you could be leaving your entire computer, device, or even home network at risk. Security flaws in software happens all the time, it‚Äôs normal. This security flaw also affected many other media players that are far more popular than¬†Kodi. The important thing is that the issue was fixed quickly, and so far no damage has been reported. However, now that the security flaw has reached mainstream news, hackers will now likely be looking to exploit it far more aggressively. The official developers of¬†Kodi¬†have been working tirelessly to release an updated version of¬†Kodi¬†that would fix security flaw, as well as some other minor bugs. Team-Kodi¬†‚Äúhighly encourages‚ÄĚ all users to install this latest version, as do we.¬†If you‚Äôre still running¬†Kodi¬†16.1 Jarvis or below, you might as well upgrade now, that way you‚Äôll also gain access to all the streams that use newer HTTPS technology not supported in older versions of¬†Kodi¬†anyway. If you follow the instructions below carefully, upgrading should be super easy. Please note that these instructions describe the unofficial use of the¬†Kodi¬†media center. Before Proceeding Android Users: Those of you who are running older devices or cheap Android boxes might run into some trouble.¬†Kodi¬†17.3 Krypton requires Android 5.0 or higher to run. If your device doesn‚Äôt support Android 5.0, you‚Äôll need to buy a new Android TV box in order to continue to enjoy¬†Kodi. Apple TV 2 Users: Even though the last two versions of¬†Kodi¬†didn‚Äôt support the Apple TV 2, the device still seemed to work alright. This will no longer be the case moving forward, without HTTPS or HD support it‚Äôll be next to useless, it‚Äôs time to purchase a new Android TV box. United Kingdom Users: It will be necessary to disable certain router security settingsbefore continuing, we‚Äôd also highly recommend using a VPN Provider to circumvent site blocking. Thank You ūüôā And Have A Great Day.¬†

Some Kodi settings to help with Live TV Buffering

Some Kodi settings to help with Live TV Buffering

Below are some advanced settings to help with Live TV buffering. This will slow channel switch but helps with buffering issues. It is not 100% but will help quite a bit.

 

The following will need to be put in your advancedsettings.xml file. If you are not sure where that or what that is, please visit the Kodi Wiki for more information.

 

<pvr>

 

<minvideocachelevel>65</minvideocachelevel>

 

<minaudiocachelevel>65</minaudiocachelevel>

 

<cacheindvdplayer>true</cacheindvdplayer>

 

</pvr>

 

Below contains some Advanced Settings for cache/buffer settings. The file names have the general settings based on how much memory your device has. Copy the file to one of the following locations based on your OS. You will need to rename the file to advancedsettings.xml. Only use this if you do not have a advancedsettings.xml already. If you do then add the above to it instead.

 

Windows:

 

C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Ro aming\Kodi\userdata

 

Android:

 

/sdcard/Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/userdata

 

Updating Fire TV and Fire Stick.

 

I am assuming that you do not have a advanced settings.xml file yet.

 

1. Download the zip.

 

2. For Fire Stick extract the advancedsettings_1Gig_Mem.xml, for Fire TV extract the advancedsettings_2Gig_Mem.xml. Rename it to advancedsettings.xml

 

3. Now you need to copy the file to your fire stick to /sdcard/Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/userdata on your Fire Stick/TV.

 

3. Restart Kodi.

 

Now getting the file to the Fire Stick can be done several ways.

 

1. If your computer is shared on your network, then you can use the Kodi File manager

 

2. Assuming you used Amazon FireTV Utility to side load Kodi, you can use the Push File To Download Dir option and send the file over that way. Then you can use the Kodi File Manager to move it to the correct location.

 

3. Side load ES File Explorer and use that as a File Manger to copy the file from your computer as in #1. Or you can enable the FTP Server in ES File Explorer and use a FTP Client to copy the file over.

Here is the zip file:

advancedsettings.zip
