Pivos XIOS DS is an ARM-based media player set-top box that can run Kodi on either Android or Linux. This Pivos XIOS DS was the original reference hardware target for the XBMC/Kodi for Android port development. Pivos XIOS DS performs roughly at the level as a jailbroken ATV2, but also comes with USB ports, micro-SD card, and doesn't need to be jailbroken.
