  1. I have recently downloaded Kodi Krypton 17.4 on iOS 11 not only is it crushing but Sports Devil won’t work please help.

  2. I’m trying to download kodi 17.4 on my stick but it gets to the end and an error comes up saying connection lost but there’s nothing wrong with my connection

  3. Just installed Kodi v17.4 and now NOTHING works!!! I can’t install ANY add-ons and the ones I had, I lost after deleting the common files after 17.4 kept crashing and refusing to let me reinstall it. I’m soooo damn frustrated now!!!

  4. I’am not updating anything else, still have one firestick with 17.1 and it works just as good as my 17.3. It’s a pain in the butt just adding an app. As i always say, if it ain’t broke, don’t go & mess it up LOL.

  5. the 17.4 update is corrupting the kodi icon on the firestick. either in the recent apps row or the your apps and games row the icon is just a gray box

  6. I backup my 1st gen and 2nd gen firestick kodi settings to my pc using adb fire. I always keep my backups up to date. I have no trouble restoring my kodi 17.3 backups to any firestick. After creating a backup of kodi 17.4 my backups fail to restore over and over on to my 1st gen firestick. I haven’t tried to restore any 2nd gen firestick yet using kodi 17.4. It seem that I have to restore my gen 1 using kodi 17.3 and then do a sideload upgrade to 17.4. Is this a bug?
