The Time Has Come to Upgrade to Frodo 12, Here’s the Easy Way!

Frodo has been out for a couple of weeks now and until now we weren’t entirely encouraging all of our visitors to rush their transition into the newly upgraded stable version of XBMC because of issues relating to addon compatibility and possible glitches with some of our more popular software tools. We’re now very pleased to say that after a few weeks of testing, we can comfortably encourage all of you to upgrade to the latest version of XBMC.

IMPORTANT NOTE: It is always best to entirely erase your configuration and restart from scratch especially if your XBMC experience relies mostly on third party addons. Uninstalling entirely and installing the latest version from scratch will ensure that your installation works optimally, giving you the best end user experience possible. We have a guide on Uninstalling XBMC and you are encouraged to read it as it’s not always as simple as just deleting the program, depending on your platform. Apple TV users are encouraged to re-jailbreak their devices from scratch
