The Kodi Team has just released a new 17.5.1 version that fixes the issues that were causing version 17.5 to crash on some Fire TV and Android devices. It turns out the issues were related to changes made to joystick support on Android devices. One reader affected by the issue has confirmed that updating from 17.5 to 17.5.1 on their Fire TV has fixed the issue.
Whether you had issues with version 17.5 or not, you don’t have to uninstall or downgrade version 17.5 before installing version 17.5.1. If you haven’t installed version 17.5 at all, you should skip it and install the new 17.5.1 version.
