Paradox on KODI 17

The time has come for us to make our builds compatible with the latest KODI 17 aka Krypton, once the build is on in all honesty you will notice very little difference but the logic seems to be that with 17 being a higher number than 16 that it must be better right?

Before installing KODI 17 please note that it is only compatible with Android 5.1 upwards, if you are running anything less then stick with Jarvis KODI 16

You will need the latest KODI 17  from the official DOWNLOAD page or our APK INSTALLER

Please note KODI 16 builds will not work on KODI 17 builds and vice versa

If for any reason after install you open up KODI and it’s a black screen with only the power and favourite buttons visible, then power off your device and load it back up which will fix this glitch

OK, so we will now give you a guide on how to install a Paradox build on KODI 17, if you already have a Paradox build installed (using android or amazon) then it will be a whole lot easier, all you need to do from KODI 16 is perform a fresh start from the Paradox wizard maintenance section, then open the Install Applications section, scroll right down to the bottom then install KODI 17, when you re-open you will have KODI 17 installed and the Paradox Wizard (please note you will need to enable the wizard before installing a build) you can then install one of the builds as you usually would but please make sure it is one of the builds with 17 in, example Family 17.
