KODI running on the InnoTV
Hi all,
after gaining adb access to the device (see other thread), I tried installing KODI.
Had to do a couple of minor adjustments due to the controller not having a working "back" key, and some flickering when playing back video at the top and bottom of the screen.

I managed to resolve both problems by firstly editing the keyboard.xml file which lives in

and adding the following lines at around line 50 in the file:

The above sets the red and green buttons to act as a "back" key. I did try the "exit" key but for some reason KODI wasn't recognising the key when pressed and was showing an error in the adb logcat.

The flickering issue seemed to be solved by un-ticking the
system..video..acceleration..Mediacodec(surface) checkbox.

To start kodi I had to issue the following command from an adb shell prompt via the pc.
root@android:/ # am start -n org.xbmc.kodi/.Splash
Starting: Intent { cmp=org.xbmc.kodi/.Splash }

It's possible to add it to the launcher apps via the database, I just haven't bothered as yet.

Video below.
