^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ not until midnight on the 20th cHooBeyDoo , I'm primed, I live on JTR and daughter only vapes Black N' Blue so i'll buy what I can for the year. I wish I could just bag 100ml bottles and be done with it
Yeah I know, bummer, shame we can't order now in time for xmas. My good lady has a new found taste for Black n Blue and Jacques Le Mon so looks like some large helpings of vape mail for the new year
Am waiting on mine coming (at the dearer price, but probably save me in the long run) Hopefully I will be able to find a step by step guide for idiots to set it up when it arrives
The MXIII box should come set up and ready to go. All you really need to do is set up or log in with your Google account (if you have one) so you can download from Google Play. It's just like an Android phone underneath it all! Kodi is pre-loaded and although not the latest version (14.1 Helix) it still works fine, if needed, just download the latest version (15.2) (Google Play) or from the Kodi website HERE, uninstall the old one then install the newer one.
cHooBeyDoo Can't see why live wallpaper's wouldn't work, though I haven't tried any. Try going into "settings" then "more settings" then "display" then "wallpaper" then "live wallpapers" and see if any of the pre installed ones work ? If they do then I cant see why any that you download wouldn't
Think I managed to find out why I can't load any live wallpapers. When I first turned the box on, I activated the Mediabox launcher (found out it's called Mediabox and not Metro, the one that's looks similar to Windows 8 tiles) but can't find a way to revert back to normal Android OS now, seems the Mediabox launcher isn't able to load live wallpapers in the background.
UPDATE: I downloaded and installed the Google Now Launcher (very similar to Android UI) and booted up to it (selected it in the option from boot) and the live wallpaper was active straight away. Looks like the Mediabox Launcher definately can't use live wallpapers
Also, finally found an app that moves apps/files to my SD card that actually works: Link2SD
All I need to do now is sort out the dreaded 'Unfortunately, Google Play Services has stopped' message from bombarding my box everytime I plug in a third party controller/air/mouse/keypad! Getting there slowly though
UPDATE_2: Think i've finally solved it! I cleaned the Google Play Services cache in the app settings and uninstalled the update, then re-updated it through Google Play....... so far so good, no error messages
This might help you guys...............This is how I did it......................
"Life...........is just a bowl of tricks!!!!!!"
That's what I tried first (also tried other ways too) but have tried again and the 15.2 apk was still not able to be installed over the top of the original 14.1 Helix installation. The developer must have put some sort of lock on certain things in this rom. So, just uninstalled v14.1 and was able to install latest version 15.2 (same as charliehorse) and all seems to working great so far
Looks like your right about the dev turning this off then, though the hardware should be able to handle it if you consider old slow clunky phones can handle it (used to have a very old sony experia that was rooted and coped fine with apps on sd, even though it had less ram than an empty sheep pen and a processor so slow a one legged octogenarian could have outrun it)
I did look at a wireless mouse but thought that using the phone as remote would have been good as it's the only thing my girlfriend tries her hardest not to lose down the back of the couch lol.
Your spot on about the mouse function on the remote though
Too true and totally agree! I have an old Sony Xperia PLAY which I still use, I rooted it myself to get rid of all the bloatware so the hardware is pretty much old hat now and I can move apps to SD card on that no problem!
One other question, do you know how I can get a live wallpaper to work on the MXIII box? Does a live wallpaper work on these things? I can't seem to find a way of it getting it to show in the background yet, although, it's early days, still finding my way around on this thing!
