Here are some details about the new firmware version 1.0.0

Ugoos KODI
The most distinguishing visual part of a new firmware is built-in 16 Jarvis Ugoos style Kodi. We created brand design for Kodi and implemented Rockchip patches for better playback and performance. Important: Ugoos Kodi comes with OTA, but you will be able to use your add-ons and themes on previous version until you reboot device. If you reflash your device manually using IMG file, Ugoos Kodi will be already pre-installed and ready for using.

Hardware Monitor
This Feature gives you access to TV Box hardware parts values in real-time. Detailed device statistic in upper bar is already implemented in Ugoos Amlogic series. You can choose type of displayed information: graphical statistic, text values or both. You can activate Hardware monitor in Ugoos settings.

Screen orientation
Screen rotation feature let use UT4 for a wider amount of non-casual tasks. UT4 becomes more convenient for displaying different types of information. New function let you choose screen positions with six different settings including forced orientation for all applications. Choose screen orientation you can in Settings - Display – Screen orientation

Multi-window Mode
We already introduced this function for our Rockchip 3288-based devices. Now it’s available for Ugoos UT4. Multi-window turns casual android TV Box theme into PC-like system with task panel and info about used applications as you used to see on Windows or Linux based computers. This feature will be very useful for those people who has interest to display more than one active application at the same time. Turn on Multi-window Mode you can run Settings – Display – Multi Window.

Caution: Please do not update firmware unless you know what you are doing, you really want it or it is absolutely necessary. Firmware updates may occasionally have bad results, like bricking your device, temporarily or permanently. The firmware update process is done entirely at your own risk. Before attempting to update the firmware, back up your data.
