Corelec or leaving android


he hello is it better or faster to run kodi in corelec or is kodi in android faster and when i run kodi from sd card will it be slower then from internal thanks for help me


Is this a question?
Try it and you’ll see it. CoreELEC is a simplified (Just enough) OS for running Kodi. Choose a good SD card and there will be no problem with speed.


For my hardware 905X Amlogic Quad Core 64bit, Android 6.0 was sloooooooow in everything including Kodi v17.1. So happy now that I installed CoreELEC to the internal memory & got rid of Android. Kodi runs quicker & a lot more stable. Cheers.

thanks a lot i will try again to get corelec installed on my box but it is a little difficult on this mecool but thanks for the feedback


It’s worth the effort, Kodi on Android is just horrible.

Even running CoreELEC on a decent SD card (Sandisk Ultra or above) Kodi will run MUCH better than Android on internal.

You just need to execute the following command to add support for the original remote the mecool device came with:
echo "meson-ir * mecool" > /storage/.config/rc_maps.cfg


hope you get better very soon bubblegum and relkai shout i do this with putty and yust give that command and thats it will my remote works then would be great thanks a lot


Yes, that’s right. Just connect to your device using puTTY, enter the above command and reboot your box.
