Kodi, previously known as XBMC, has got a new bugfix release and is now available to download.

Kodi 17.1 addresses a number of bugs in the recently released Kodi 17.0.

Of course, Kodi 17.0 brought a huge number of new features and bug fixes so its not surprising there’s a few bugs to be squashed.

I’ve included the Kodi 17.1 changelog below:

  • Update Estuary and Estouchy with some bugfixes and improvements
  • Fix EDL skipping
  • Fix slow song smartplaylist
  • Several PVR fixes
  • Update Chorus webinterface
  • Fix addons not being marked broken when they are updated with broken flag
  • Add limiter on random songs which should prevent large memory usage on big libraries
  • Improve keyboard mapping during button mapping
  • Improve analog stick handling
  • Improve plugin performance when building the content list
  • Include RTMP inputstream add-on for Windows
  • Don’t close subtitle stream when switching audio
  • Fix replaygain for music files
  • Fix controllers buttons on Android
  • Fix music cleanup hanging on large MySQL music database
  • Fix use of SMB on Android on new installs
  • Fix possible Kodi upgrade migration hang during add-on update process
  • Add check in Windows installer for Service Packs and updates that Kodi needs to operate
  • Don’t try to read tags from internet audio streams
  • Add setting to disable controller rumble on notifications

If you’re already running Kodi 17.0 (and you should be!), download Kodi 17.1 from the Kodi downloads page.

    Hi Michael, Several of my friends bought the Sunvell T95M box. When you go into Playstore to update to Krypton, Kodi isn’t available. I have a couple of friends who now have these boxes and, with a need to move to 17.1, they were quite frustrated. However I have been able to sideload the kodi-17.1-Krypton-armeabi-v7a.apk version which installed fine. Other Kodi 17.1 versions would not install. I did two boxes yesterday and have one more to do for another friend.

    • It’s possible Sunvell have got something in the firmware that marks it as incompatible (though there’s ways of getting around it).

      Sideloading is the best option in this case.

        I did the third and final box yesterday and it wouldn’t go on easily. I am guessing there was something in their version of 16.1 they were using (an addon or something) that was just not compatible. After doing the upgrade to 17.1 the startup screen was just black. I had to totally uninstall Kodi and then reinstall and set it all up again. An hour or so later all was running fine.
