After looking for some RP3 replacement that can run Kodi I've stumble on GearBest offer for Tanix TX3 Mini for £19,99

Specs:

RAM: 1GB/2GB DDR3

Few things would be nice to have is:

Box support 4K but with firmware I got (Amlogic/p281/p281:7.1.2/NHG47L/20170906:userdebug/test-keys) that simple didn't work.
So I went to http://www.tanix-box.com and searched for firmware upgrade (as update from System settings didn't work)

On Tanix website there was update for 4K fix
