    OK, I screwed up my MXQ Pro box last week when the Show Box app stopped working. I did a factory reset, something I've done at least two other times when I first got my box about two years ago (just found out it was manufactured in 2014 while I bought mine around April 2017 – thanks Groupon) this time after doing that I went into Show Box and realized that all it needed was an update, great it's working again. But Exodus isn't working at all. If I follow your directions I assume it will again get rid of Show Box which by hit and run I can get back on line, but your tutorial does tell me how to reinstall Kodi and Exodus. I don't know how to do addon, all I'm really good at is making a mess out of any form of electronics. Help

    I have XbMC andriod box which the technician and customer service stopped answering me ( I didn't contact them a lot ever!) Anyway, when I reset Kodi to the factory version, I had to login and it required my order number. I don't have it anymore since we bought the android box in December 2015, what do I do?

    EXCELLENT tutorial!!! Thank you Troy! I am a novice at all of this – self-teaching myself how to do all these technological things now that I moved 1000 miles away from my tech gurus who used to do EVERYTHING for me, when I should have been watching what was being done. I just cleared my Kodi, but when I tried to add Exodus to it it's telling me that it's not connected to the network, and everything in all my settings says I AM connected to the network – this is my project for today – trying to figure what needs to be done!

    **To all the people freaking out about having cleared your cache but now not having any movies or tv – think of Kodi as your new home, but now you have to add things inside of it in order live….you have to install tv/movie addons, which is what allows to you to get all of your shows. Exodus is probably the most widely known but there's others too, like Bubbles, Covenant, Elysium, and more. You have to add these addons in order to get tv shows and movies. A little bit of research on Google will bring up a plethora of information on how to get you boxes working again…just have patience and do some research!!!

    We have this box and I accidentally uninstalled Kodi last night. So then I went to the Google play store and downloaded the app but all the features, movie options, etc. Are gone from the app. How do we get the original stuff back? The movie options. We have the app now but there's nothing 2 watch in it. Thank you
