This is a unique update. Many of you who are supported already know the details but for those who are not supported or may have missed the memos on our social media pages, we’ll catch you up to speed.
The Server Version before this one, Server Version 20191128, was a major upgrade called FOMOstream® Build 2.0 that was built for Kodi 18.4. To get Kodi 18.4 on the box you needed to install a new System Update. This System Update with Kodi 18.4 in it was necessary to install before the Server Update 20191128. We explained to everyone on a previous blog post that if they were to install the Server Update first, FOMOstream® Build 2.0 wouldn’t install properly. The Add-ons would be there and most would still work but the fancy navigation screen would be gone and it would look very basic.
Our team uploaded both updates to our Fs1plus models first. This is when we confirmed that a small percentage of our Fs1plus Customers couldn’t get the new System Update with 18.4 to stay stable. It would crash after 20 seconds and go back to the Android Home Screen. The update works on some Fs1plus models and not the others so needless to say, we decided it best to halt the installation of FOMOstream® Build 2.0 on the servers for the Fs1 and Fs1mini models while we troubleshoot the issue some more.
Also, because Server Update 20191128 would only work with the new System Update (that was now postponed to our Fs1 and Fs1mini models) it only made sense to put an older setup back on the server to install. We decided to put Build 1.4 back on the server… and that’s what this update is all about. It’s actually a copy of Server Version 20190829.
Only thing is, we were in such a rush to get it up in time for the holidays that we forgot to add some of the pin codes needed to make 4 of the add-ons work… such as Limitless, Dynamic TV Guide, NemesisAIO, and GridIron Legions.
We’re rushing a new Server Update out now which will fix those 4 Add-ons. Everything else should be working great in the meantime as long as you have this Server Version installed.
Those with a Fs1plus who are enjoying FOMOstream® Build 2.0 already installed without any issues can ignore this update and the next if desired. The only thing is the Live TV will only work with the FOMOstream® build we attach it to and Live TV will be soon attached back to build 1.4. in the next Server Update, not yet named.
Thank you for your patience. Those who have been with us for years know that these hickups are rare for us. We’re already putting measures in place to minimize any future setbacks like this. We’ll keep you updated on the progress with FOMOstream® Build 2.0.
