Typhoon’s Buggy Update

Typhoon released an update that was buggy. They quickly released another good update but it looks like if you updated to the buggy version, 2.1.9 and then tried to update with the fixed version, 2.1.9.2, the bugs remained. What you need to do is completely wipe Typhoon off your tv box and download the good version from our website. Here’s how,

2. Go to Apps and click it.

Most tv boxes have their apps listed in alphabetical order.

4. Arrow to Local Disk and click it.

5. Click the first rectangle at the top left of your screen. It’s the one with the checkmarks and lines. After you click it, it will appear highlighted yellow.

6. Scroll down to Typhoon and click it. A green checkmark should appear at the right side of the screen on the same line as Typhoon.

7. Back at the top of the screen, click the second rectangle from the left. This one has dots and a pencil.

8. A drop-down menu will appear. Scroll down and click Delete.

5. Scroll down and click on Typhoon Download.

NOTE: If you see the message “Chrome needs storage access to download files”, follow these steps:
