At a super affordable price point, the Xiaomi Mi Box is quickly becoming one of the most sought after Android TV boxes for Kodi. It offers power comparable to the NVIDIA Shield TV, at a fraction of the cost. Right now it’s still new, so it isn’t yet for sale everywhere, but if you can get your hand at one (they’re sold at Walmart in the USA), the Xiaomi Mi Box is really the way to go. This device will definitely offer a world class Kodi experience.
We’re currently recommending that Xiaomi Mi Box users install SPMC to their devices, in place of the official Kodi app. SPMC is actually developed by the same person who maintains the official Android release of Kodi, but offers enhanced functionality such as voice search, as well as performance tweaks. SPMC can be easily installed through the Google Play Store, and is a great fit for any Xiaomi Mi Box setup.
Step 1: Navigate to the Google Play Store icon on the Xiaomi Mi Box launcher.
Step 2: Click on the little search icon at the top left corner of the screen.
Step 3: Input spmc into the search box.
Step 4: Click on the SPMC app icon.
Step 5: Click on the INSTALL button.
Step 6: Press the Accept button to proceed.
Step 7: Wait a few minutes for SPMC (or Kodi) to download to your device.
Step 8: You’re almost there! Return to the Xiaomi Mi Box launcher once the SPMC app has been installed.
Step 9: Navigate to the Apps section of the Xiaomi Mi Box launcher.
Step 10: Highlight the SPMC app icon, at the end of the Apps bar.
Step 11: Hold down the Select button on your remote control.
Step 12: Press left to move the SPMC icon to the beginning of the Apps bar.
Step 13: Click on the Select button on your remote control, once the app icon is where you want it to be.
Step 14: Click on Done button.
Step 15: You’re done! You’ll now find SPMC (or Kodi) ready to use on your Xiaomi Mi Box device.
Now that you’ve installed Kodi to your Xiaomi Mi Box device, you’ll want to go ahead and get our Fusion Installer source added, and then run our Indigo tool, which will jumpstart your Kodi addon experience.
