DSDevices

Customers with a DSDevices unit can now take advantage of our new Xibo for Android DSDevices APK. This APK brings tighter integration with the DSDevices hardware and allows for automatic upgrade, shell commands and any other functionality that previously required root access, without root access!

Customers already running the standard Xibo for Android APK on their DSDevice will need to remove and reinstall using the new APK. Subsequent updates can be pushed to your DSDevices directly from the Xibo CMS.
