MashUp XBMC Addon auto removal fixed!

IgetThis 1,700 495 November 14, 2014 at 09:28 PM
Hello All,


I am sure a lot of SD users are using MashUp and noticed the recent auto update removed it completely from your system.
There are already some fixes available but what I have seen so far involve to install an older changed MashUp addon install file.
Or to change your host file or block IPs in your firewall.
Blocking the IPs in your Firewall or changing the host file will also block some other addons to perform auto updates.


I played around, looked at the Python code and found an easy way to get it fixed and use the newest update (I do believe it is1.4.0. I used 1.4.0) before Mash messed it up and removed it without notice.

If you backed up your MashUp using a backup program or copied the XBMC folder as backup to somewhere else restore the "plugin.video.movie25" folder. No other folder is needed.
In Windows it's located under C:\Users\"Your user name"\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\addons\plugin.video.movie25
Open that folder and open file "default.py" (that is the Phyton code file) and search for "from resources.libs import autoupdate"
Below you see code:
html=main.OPENURL('https://github.com/
and
UpdateUrl = 'https://github.com/

Change the .com to something that doesn't exist like .pr
Save it.

Now you can start XBMC and MashUp. You see the update messages (only ones) but no updates are performed because the update link cannot be reached. Big Grin

I have attached the changed "plugin.video.movie25" folder if you did not backed up your MashUp folder in any way or if you don't want / like to do it the manual way.
Just download, unzip and copy the included "plugin.video.movie25" folder to the XBMC addon folder and overwrite / replace the existing. nod

Tried it on multiple systems and it worked on all of them. woot
You cannot just change the default.py file after the auto update already ran. Mash removed a lot and changed files.

At least it looks like it helped a few. Big Grin

i try it and it works. But the International/Korean/Japanese/Chinese Movies & Dramas isn't working.

the Dramas section that is. it has all the shows and episodes but there's no link to watch them. i guess it's a small price to pay.

Did it work before Mash removed it? I used the latest 1.4.0 version and never tried International. Where do you go and watch these?
The only one I tried was live German TV and it works as usual. Some links work sometimes and sometimes not.
But I think as long as the main parts work I am fine with that until Hackermil and other developers get their replacement done.
Hackermil made a great statement that Mash handled it wrong and he will take of us users. Smilie

yep it did work before the final good bye update.

it's under: International - Korean/Japanese/Chinese - Latest Korean/Japanese/Chinese Movies & Dramas (Dramania) -
Dramas - then select any of the 3 (All Dramas - Popular Dramas - New Dramas).

All the shows and episodes are listed but when you selected them the links are empty.

All I can remember was there was an update fix just before this last good bye one.

hmmm. not sure but I just went there. Selected New Movies and tried a few from the top and they were listed and played.
Then I tried Popular Movies and only a few showed actual links. Most where empty.
Here is what I see using New Movies (attached files).
Looks like it is functioning but not all of it. Maybe it was that way before?

How do I copy that folder to my Fire TV?
Do I need to root the FTV? can I use ADB?

Will this work if Mashup as already been wiped/removed? What's a good alternative to Mashup now? I'm lost without it.

Yes it will. You need to download the zip file. Unzip it and copy the content in the correct folders (the content is what Mashup removed including the fixed .py file..
I mentioned it in my original post:

Just download, unzip and copy the included "plugin.video.movie25" folder to the XBMC addon folder and overwrite / replace the existing.
The location on a Windows Box is:
C:\Users\"Your user name"\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\addons\

Make sure you set your folders to show hidden files and folders otherwise you don't see the AppData folder. Smilie
Control Panel -> Folder Option and under tab View select Show hidden files, folders and drives .... ->OK

So I did and it was super easy! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Had to do a reset using the toothpick method to get it to work thank you. For the longest I could only get 720p but now I am seeing things in 1080p. How exactly did that happen? XBMC is installed on an android Gbox but I just bought a Qnap 451 and Optoma Projector so I am serious now about home entertainment. What are the benefits of having XBMC on a server rather than a box?

Thanks again, I was so sad when I realized it was gone. I truly thought it was gone forever but then again when it comes to tech nothing is ever gone. I'm gonna install Project Free TV, Icefilms, and Cliq just to make sure I'm covered.
