Great, another image to play with and to try to understand to learn things )

Just a quick feedback from the 1080 version: Like Mattrix version, and like any image based on my personnal tweak tentative, on my screen, it started on 720P mode. I can force 1080p in android parameter, but try to understand if it's a behavior due to my screen (BenQ GL2450HM) or if it's something else.

You should call the 720p version  --->  'Recommended version'

Thank you!

Mhm... strange.
maybe you should try another screen because it works for me..
(FULL HD LED TV via HDMI)

Are we talking about XBMC or Kodi Alpha xx?

Do we have hardware acceleration with Alpha 4?


To make the work with this image better do this to get less work.


I don't really understand that sentence... What are those 8 steps doing and are they mandatory?

We're talking about XBMC and Kodi does not have Hardware Accleration.

With this steps, you:
-Have some changes in XBMC (uPnp and other settings important for remote-controlling XBMC)
-can use ES file explorer without the welcome screen you got.

I do not have tried if the settings are getting changed(no time itm) but I think it should work

Would love to see the same with Kodi Alpha 4
