cant get krypton 17.3 on firestick

23 posts in this topic

I have a relatively new fire stick and have been running Jarvis 16.1 on it but my problem is I cannot update to a newer version.
I have tried 17.0, 17.2 & 17.3. I always uninstall 16.1 first to do a fresh install.
I loads but will not go beyond the 'first run'....it goes blank after a few seconds. Then it does not load at all, but if I clear cache & data, once again it will load but again not past 'first run'

I have 3.4 gb of 5.57gb
operating system 5.2.4.1 version 5.7.3 -17

I have 2 fire sticks, bought around 4 months apart and have no problem with installing 17.3 on that one

I have also tried various methods to install - adblink, downloader & ES file explorer

Is anyone else had the same issue, can any one suggest anything

Hi @jade¬†I have a few questions for you. When exactly did you try installing? Like today, yesterday etc? Also, don't make any changes to your working stick right now. There are some things I will explain when I hear back from you, what are you using to install? Downloader or es file explorer? Or have you tried both? Also for future reference, you don't need to uninstall kodi at all to update kodi version, you just go to downloader, go to kodi.tv/downloads chose ‚ě°ÔłŹ arm7a 32 bit under resources (not under nightly) chose update instead of new. That's it. I can explain better but for now, get back to me & we will get you sorted out‚ėļÔłŹ (Also, were you choosing arm7a 32 bit instead of 64bit or x86)?

thanks! Sarah

@jade¬†1st things 1st you will need to make more room on your stick. That may be the problem. Go to settings, applications, manage installed applications, and remove anything you aren't using. Then let me know what space you have after as well. ‚ėļÔłŹ

Hi Sarah

To answer you question:

Currently I have  3.4 gb of 5.57gb

I have tried downloader, ES File Explorer & adblink

I definitely choose 32 bit not 64 bit

Last time I tried was yesterday

Currently I don't have it installed as when it didn't work I uninstalled it.  I know if I go back to Jarvis 16.1 it will install without any issues and load fine.  Actually it does install but doesn't get beyond 'first run' - as stated if I clear cache & data in Kodi, it will load but not past first run, once it fails at first run it won't load at all until I again clear Cache & data

I was always told it is better to a fresh install as opposed to install the new version over the top of the old.  So I back up, uninstall old, install new & restore.

On the download page I cannot see where it says 'choose update'

 

Regards

Jade

hi @jade

thanks for providing the info! 2 other questions, when did you last update your other firestck? & what country do you live in? 3.73 gb should be fine. Go into settings, applications, managed installed applications and make sure Kodi isn't there. Then unplug your fire stick from the wall or tv and plug back in, & see video I posted below :) 

As for updating Kodi, a fresh start only pertains to a build, not completely uninstalling kodi to update the version, these are 2 different things. You are correct though, it is always recommended to fresh start (clear data) when installing a new build. You just dont have to uninstall kodi to update. when you select the arm to install, a window pops up, top left there is a NEW tab and Update tab, I will get a picture shortly and post for you to see what I mean.

Here is my favorite method to fresh start: (for firestick you just go to settings, applications, managed installed applications, Kodi, clear data. thats it! When you open kodi again it will show "first run". Video reflects the same for all devices too :)

Since you have already removed Kodi, I know you've already tried this. but I recommend following this video one more time to try installing again. If this doesn't work, let me know, you can go back to 16.1 if you'd like (security flaw only pertains to 17+), or we can try a kodi fork.

let me know how it goes, we will get you sorted, promise!

Hi Sarah

Unplugged fire stick & plugged back in. Then followed the tutorial for the downloader method and got exactly the same, installs but goes to blank screen after first run.

I forgot to say I tried spmc a while back & that was also unsuccessful,  Jarvis 16.1 loads without issue, so frustrating.  These 2 fire sticks were only bought a couple of months apart & the other one has no issue with 17.3

thanks for you help

Jade

It Just goes blank for a couple of seconds (not black though, more grey, like when the TV is switched off, & then it goes back to fire stick -' installed apps, launch kodi' page)

@jade¬†hi, I'm so sorry, thanks for tagging me! ūüĎŹ

I know you said you bought them within a few months of one another, did you buy brand new from a store or from someone who loaded kodi on it for you initially?

wondered if i ought to re-set fire stick back to factory settings & start again, but didnt want to have to re-install all my apps again really

@jade I was going to recommend doing a factory reset next. The problem you are describing doesn't sound like a kodi problem, per say, especially since you said it's happening with spmc too. 

1 more thing before you reset, can you go to settings on fire tv: settings, device, developer options, and make sure adb debugging and apps from unknown sources are turned on (turn on all 3 USB debugging to if you like) ‚¨áÔłŹ See below.¬†

Then go back to kodi, open it & see. If you want to take a short video for me when you open if it's giving you the same trouble that may help me. Also this may sound silly but try unplugging your device from power & plug back in (can't recall if I mentioned this already)

After this step we can figure out resetting etc. All of your apps will be linked to your Amazon account so even though you reset, it won't be much trouble getting them back, your just re sync your Amazon account. 

Ill wait to hear from you‚ėļÔłŹ

Sarah,

Put the fire stick back to factory settings, installed kodi via the downloader method....but no change whatsoever.

Took a short video of what happens with my phone but not sure how to insert it

Hi @jade did you change the settings on your fire stick as pictured above? 

To attach video, just select click to choose files below ‚¨áÔłŹ Or insert other media. Both ways will let you. Thanks!¬†

when clicking on 'insert other media' - 2 choices, insert existing attachment, but says don't have existing attachment  or insert URL & obviously it's not URL.....there ought to be an option of attaching file from computer

Just to update you, I installed the fork Nodi not Kodi and got the exact same issue replicated.....it installs but goes no further than 1st run, then doesn't load any more until I clear data, then loads but not past 1st run.....I'm am totally bewildered, not tried installing Jarvis 16.1 recently but last time I did it loaded & worked !!

Hi @jade did you ever do factory reset? 

Also, where do you live, what country what isp? Do you have a vpn? There are changes you can make to router settings that might help, maybe your isp made a change since you installed last... you could try side loading with apps2fire or remote share with pc...

other than all the above¬†I'm thinking stick is defective. If it's only a few months old, contact Amazon. Just say you are downloading apps and sidelong apps that won't open (I wouldn't give them too much info on kodi) but 1st let me know about 1st questions ūü§ě

Yes I did a full re-set of the fire stick, completely re-registering & re-entering wifi settings.  I am currently in Cyprus, but I also use it in the UK as well & have same problem in both places. I do not use a vpn as in a regular monthly payment, but I have on occasions used the free Hola vpn.    I side load using adbfire & have also use ES File explorer & downloader.

I have installed Jarvis 16'1 (after trying Nodi not Kodi which produced the same result ) and Jarvis works.  Can't comment on how good or bad the functionality of the Kodi Jarvis is working at present because as you know many of the addons have gone down since fusion / tvaddons.ag has gone offline, so really my fresh install of Jarvis only has Genesis Reborn
