E-Z Stream Updater Tips

We developed the E-Z Stream Updater to make things easier for owners of our Element Android TV Boxes. Easier set up for you means more time to stream and less headaches involving the setup of Kodi.

We have heard from you that it does make things easier, which really makes us happy!

The E-Z Stream Updater is still a work in progress and will continue to be improved upon. In the meantime, we’ve put together some helpful tips to make using the E-Z Stream Updater and your Element box in general even better and easier.

Tip 1 – If the “Loading” Screen displays and keeps spinning, back out and try again.

If this screen displays and says “loading” with the loop spinning to the left, it’s no big deal. Simply click the back or home button on your remote to get out of the Updater app. Go back in and try the update again, that should get it going. Don’t wait more than a couple of minutes before backing out and trying again.

Tip 2 – Don’t run the Updater app every day.

The updater app does not need to be run all the time. We will let you know when updates are available, but even then most of the time they are not mandatory. If you don’t need the new add-on shortcuts, or any of the other updates shown in the app, you don’t have to run it.

Tip 3 –¬†After running the Updater, give Kodi a couple of minutes to update everything.

The E-Z Stream Updater fills Kodi with all kinds of great add-ons. Many of these add-ons update automatically once installed. When the Updater is finished running and the loaded version of Kodi is on the screen, give Kodi a couple of minutes to completely update these add-ons. This will make sure they work correctly and also limit buffering.

Tip 4 – Don’t exit out of Kodi before letting the update complete.

As we mentioned in the previous tip, letting all of the Kodi add-ons update is an important step. Make sure to let the add-ons update prior to exiting Kodi. You’ll know when they’re done, you’ll no longer see update notifications in the lower right hand corner of the screen. When you do exit Kodi, make sure to always do it properly.

Tip 5 – Know what to expect.

Right now, when you run the E-Z Stream Updater, any favorites that you have saved or extra add-ons you have installed will be erased. Know that this is the case prior to running the Updater.


We hope these tips help in enjoying your Element box. If you have any helpful tips, please let us know so we can share them with other users!
