    FTMC Jarvis 16.2.31

    This is the offical FTMC Thread special thanks SuperCeleron for working so Hard on this for all the Freak Tab Members.

    Below are all the Builds and change logs SuperCeleron changes to FTMC. As always latest will be at the top of this post

    FTMC is a fork for Kodi and provides hardware acceleration and more features on rockchip mainstream chips(rk3228, rk3229, rk3229h, rk3288, rk3368, rk3399) and most android version(Android4.4, 5.x, 6.x). In the case of hardware allowed, FTMC supports 4K2K、4K2K 10bit(H264,HEVC),MVC 3D (bluray & mkv), high profile audio passthrough. And also maintain Android 4.4 support for older devices, also maintain a better support for Amlogic S9xx Chips, and preserving the amlogic AMCODEC (only on Android version from 4.4 to 6.x, since in 7.x amlogic removed the support for it)

    Hi guys,

    I'm using Superceleron ATV ROM plus FTMC. I'm finding problems getting the sound on my BT earphones when playing a movie. Sometimes I need to play 1-2 minutes until I get the sound, sometimes even more. Weirdest thing is that they work perfectly with any other Android app. FTMC interface sounds also work without problems. I also noticed that when the movie starts BT earphones get activated (but no sound sank), so it seems to be a bug somewhere. Since SPMC shows the very same problem, I guess it might be related to Kodi 16 codebase. Has anyone else suffered from that and has been able to workaround it?

    Youtube: OK
    VLC: OK
    Kodi 17: OK
    Kodi 18: OK
    FTMC system sounds: OK
    FTMC movie sound: FAIL
    SPMC system sounds: OK
    SPMC movie sound: FAIL

    Most addons now require Kodi 18 to work.
    FTMC is based on Kodi 16 so most addons won't work anymore, only local playback.

  • freak8tab
    UPDATE: I installed this from Play store and it has 10 options, works perfect with FTMC and all other Kodi/XBMC variants. Launcher for XBMC

    Hello all. I'm running FTMC latest on MyGica Android 4.4 (armlogic). Which techniques do you use to boot the Android box directly into FTMC the fastest way ? I don't even need the MyGica Launcher to start (save memory and 5seconds). Thank you all.

    Exodus 6.0 Will this work in FTMC based on Lollipop. I'm running Mo's Rom on a tronsmart rk3368. It will install the repository but under Video addons Exodus is not there to install.

    You must use it as a system app.
    If it still doesn't work then your firmware is broken and using FTMC won't work.
    Try to use Kodi 18 or contact the manufacturer/seller for an updated firmware.
    You get what you pay for.

    I don't know exactly how everything is pre-installed and setup on the box. Some Kodi stuff (log viewer) never worked. On the surface everything sorta looks like Kodi, but underneath it is FTMC.
    Thanks mo123 .. will check out the Mibox. I don't think the box can be returned now, so I'll see if I can get kodi on it. I've been reading and I guess I need to get kodi on first and then install a "build" that works for that version of kodi. Rasbi .. (( "superceleron rom. FTMC is included." )) I don't know anything about that package. I think you need to go - Settings / More Settings / down to - Security and click on it. Unknown sources is at the bottom. GL

    So sad to see an open-source project like FTMC being used for piracy by companies.
    I see they now sell a rebranded Mecool KM8 for $99 probably also full of piracy addons.
    Send the device back and buy something decent like a Mibox instead.

  • Rasbi
    I installed the superceleron rom. FTMC is included. I want to add sources, but every time I get an error when trying to add them and have no zip for install. Where can I enable "unknown sources" in FTMC??? I cant find that.

    Edit: Tried to remove FTMC, but the icon is still on the homescreen. This is real sh..!

    On the FB Group / Forum (Ti8 - EZ-Stream / Element) I keep reading that the latest FTMC is 16.31 and there is no new versions coming. Also that Jarvis & FTMC are discontinued. The word is - Buy a newer box with newer hardware. My box isn't all that old. I read here on FT to install Kodi 18. I'm not sure exactly how to go about doing that, because FTMC / Jarvis was pre-installed on the box and updated through FTMC's updater. (It no longer updates) So I'm wondering - Do I format / wipe the box clean and then install android and then install kodi 18? Is that what I do? Sorry no experience at all with manual builds. What to do .. what to do? Can someone help? Thanks!

    FTMC - 16.2-31.

    Hey tomhardy, thanks for this. Everything installed but the 'requests' module. That one is still missing a dependency. However, I tried this on .30, are you .31? Or do you think it'll make any difference?
