So I don't really feel like digging through the thread to see if this has been answered but I went to boot up my gamestick today after a long hiatus (think since the big ten basketball tournament) to watch Monday Night Football and nothing doing. Sports Devil wouldn't load any web requests. So I tried Genesis and it wouldn't do anything. Can anyone help me out with what I need to do to get things going again?

 

Not sure, but you might just need to be patient and let Kodi/XBMC/SPMC etc... update all it's "plug-ins" and such before you start to use it. Might take awhile if you haven't used it in a long time. I know when I start it up on a system that I haven't used in awhile I get all sorts of pop-ups at the bottom right hand corner telling me it is updating this and that... otherwise you may need to update your version of Kodi/XBMC/SPMC etc... to the latest version for some "plug-ins" to continue working? Obviously try the first method before re-installing.

 

does anyone know how to get kodi to load all the data and stuff to a sd card on the dock ?

Not sure if it works on the Gamestick, but I've used https://play.google....devasque.fmount Folder Mount to mirror/sync certain Apps folders to External SD cards on my Rooted Android Phones with no problem. I assume you could use it on Gamestick too... since it is essentially "Rooted", no? I will have to try it out later, as I've had trouble with the limited space and not being able to move the "Memory Card" folder of PPSSPP before.

Ok so I feel like half an idiot. It never connected to my phone's hotspot. An authentication error. Can't seem to solve it no matter what I do. Common fixes on the net are airplane mode which doesn't seem to be an option and enabling wps which I cannot do through foxfi

Just a heads up on the XBMC/Kodi/SPMC etc... make sure your Gamestick has enough free space to stream videos... if your Gamestick is full... streams won't start.

If you go to your Settings, there should be something like "Storage" listed and you can see how much free space is available on your Internal Drive & SD Card (which is part of the internal...) You probably need a few hundred mb free to stream... I was able to uninstall a few Apps that I wasn't using to free up space on mine. Not sure what Folder Kodi/XBMC/SPMC uses sorry.

Looks like this thread is finally dead? Just powered up my Gamestick last night instead of my Fire TV Stick to see if I could get the new NHL TV App working, because it won't work sideloaded on the Fire TV Stick because it lacks "Google Services" which are required... boo! So I figured I'd try it on the Gamestick, but sadly it won't work there either as it requires a newer version of Android because the .apk errors out with "can't parse". Boo! Also can't seem to update to latest Kodi on Gamestick... anyone know if there is a version that will work? Went back to Fire TV Stick w/ latest Kodi & NHL TV addon. Works at least, but I was hoping my Gamestick would be my hero once again.

The last version that worked was the one discussed here on the first post of the thread (idk if it's the latest supported one though, check the kodi posts here since I don't remember exactly). Can't update more than that on it since I have mine stored away w a bunch of cables and old stuff since I'm rocking an atv4 for my kodi and movies needs, also have a new emulator on it PLUS my vita tv for my full emulator cravings.
With the way app addons move its going to be hard for you unless you download an older apk of the app and of that app lets you use an older version as well to do it legally. You could always watch other nonlegal streams but it's never the same.

Thanks. Seems like I already have the last working version of Kodi on the Gamestick then... guess it's time to make it a dedicated emulator box instead of a media box... ATV4 is Apple TV? What emulators are on the Vita TV? I know I was able to make one of my Vita TV's play games that were blocked for no reason, but I didn't know it could do anything else... any links for the Vita TV stuff?

If we were able to update the GameStick to the latest Marshmallow Android, would you guys be interested?

I'm all for it. Thanks!
Tbh I have it stashed away ever since I bought the atv4. It's so slow vs the atv4 on kodi but if marshmallow can run properly I'm all for it since I might use it again.

Yeah, I still have one on every TV in the house... but haven't used it since NHL Gamecenter switched to NHL TV and the Kodi's on the Gamestick stopped supporting it, but I'd upgrade them to the latest Android version if I could.

I believe SPMC (a spur of Kodi) still works fine on it in its current state.
