Android Mattrix XBMC/KODI Image - V3.1

 It's been a long time coming, but I finally got around to creating a new XBMC Image

Here are the main features:
- Latest KODI 14.0
- Auto-setup of KODI, MX Player & SMB Wrapper
- Autostart KODI on boot
- SMB Wrapper to allow playback of Network files
- 720p & 1080p Versions Available
- HIDRaw and Joystick Drivers + XPAD module loaded on boot

Both images playback videos fine, but the 720p image is quite a bit faster in the GUI.
The latest KODI is now capable of playing back most videos I tried natively.
However, it is still using quite a bit of CPU and may not playback everything.
I therefore decided to use MX Player for playback for a more consistent user experience.

720p (297 MB)

1080p (297 MB)

720p (297 MB)

1080p (297 MB)

- Unzip image & burn with PhoenixCard
- Boot, and then wait.... (about 1-2 mins)
- XBMC will automatically start (signalling the end of the installation process)
- That's it.
- If using 1080p version, exit XBMC and set 1080P in Android Display settings

KODI is setup to use SMB Wrapper / MX Player for network files and to use MX Player for any local files.
You can easily edit or remove the playercorefactory.xml file in sdcard/Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/userdata folder.
To disable KODI autostart, remove sdcard/Android/data/mattrix/autostartkodi
