Hello.
I use OBH 4.1. After the update today of the image 12/2 the Kodi stop to work. I start it, a black screen comes and after 5 sec returns to the feeds.
Any idea?

Very odd, never seen this after an update myself but I tend to avoid them. If it worked before then it should still work. If you are not seeing any error then this behaviour usually indicates:
  1. Kodi can't find it's data folder '.kodi' (usually on the HDD or USB but also seen in the RFS recently).
  2. Kodi installation has got corrupted.
Things to check/try:
  1. Have you done a full reboot?
  2. Check the media, where your .kodi directory was originally, has been mounted correctly.
  3. Uninstall Kodi from the plugins panel, restart & then install it again.
If none of the above fixes things reflash & avoid doing updates unless you have a really good reason for doing so. As per the age old saying, "If it works don't feck with it".

I have a full back up .zip file. Can I use flash inside OBH to restore without usb? Is it safe?
Or better copy the .zip file to usb and flash it at the start?
