If you are on older version of Android such as Kitkat(4.4.2) then you can’t install Kodi 17 Krypton on it. FTMC is a fork for Kodi that provides hardware acceleration and more features on Rockchip mainstream chips(RK3228, RK3229, RK3229h, RK3288, RK3368, RK3399) and most Android version(Android4.4, 5*x, 6*x). FTMC supports 4K2K, 4K2K 10bit(H264, HEVC), MVC, 3D(bluray, MKV), high profile audio passthrough. It also maintains a better support for Amlogic S9xx chips and preserving the Amlogic AMCODEC (only on Android version from 4.4 to 6.x, since in 7.x amlogic removed the support for it.).
FTMC uses confluence skin but it has the functionality of Kodi 17 and can be installed on the same time with Kodi as it uses separate space on your device. So if you are not able to install Kodi 17 on your Android version and if some streams are not working properly on Kodi 16 then you can install FTMC and get all the features of Kodi 17 Krytpon.
