Justin thanks for this (finally!). I've only been testing on my 1800E (2014 edition) a couple of days off and on but so far a much improved release over the old firmware.
Biggest improvement - slow wired ethernet seems to have been solved. Now getting a solid 25-30 Mb/s instead of the 4 Mb/s or less I was with the old one. Still not full speed on my 50 Mb/s down connection but then again my ISP's broadband box is up and down within that max speed all the time so this is consistent with a minimum performance expectation.

The upgrade itself was a little glitchy - booted into recovery mode with the button, mounted the SD card and installed. It froze for better part of an hour at around 80%. Had to finally pull power. It re-booted into recovery, I tried the file again and this time it only slightly hesitated at 80% before jumping to 100%. After that everything went well.

I'll continue testing this over the weekend and see how it plays out. Kodi seems to be smoother and I like the fact they pre-installed Chrome now instead of that half-assed browser that was in there before. Haven't had a chance to test DTS output yet through Kodi or the internal media player but will update as I do this.

Quick update - DTS still a problem in Kodi. No output through passthrough. Works in MX Player so for the time being thats fine with me. Also works through the Movie 4K player but I can't stand that stupid DTS logo in the upper right all the time and lack of audio selection control so I don't use that one ;)

I installed this beta firmware on the weekend. Here is my experience with it.

As above I experienced the same freeze up at about 80% and had to reboot into recovery and try again. This time I did a full factory reset prior to upgrading. After this the firmware upgrade went without a hitch.

Software booted up and added all new apps and features including Kodi 14.0. After configuring my Ethernet, wireless and Google information I immediately went into Kodi, installed "Backup" and restored my Gotham data into Kodi. This is where it started going south.

When I restored I did the usual restore "everything" and rebooted Kodi. It looked just like my old Gotham setup complete with custom backgrounds LAN paths, movies. Vertical menus, etc.
Everything looked good until I attempted to play any kind of video media or music. There was NO sound and the video source was jittering all over the screen.
I couldn't fix this for the life of me so I ended up going back into recovery and doing a data wipe again.
Upon reboot the firmware promptly reinstalled everything back to factory for me. This time I went into Kodi and created a path to video and played it. Worked perfectly.
Then i went back to "Backup" and reconfigured it to restore everything EXCEPT configuration files. Rebooted it and this time it had all my plugins but it still looked like stock Kodi. Everything played as it should so I manually restored Kodi back to the custom set-up that I use and it works excellently.

I think that the cross over from XBMC to KODI was a big upgrade and allot of changes were made that forced me into making new configurations. Now that this is out of the way it should be clear sailing for any new Kodi upgrades in the future (like the 14.1 upgrade coming soon).

I hope this helps some people do the upgrade. Believe me it is worth it to get to the new firmware and the new Kodi is streamlined and fast.

Happy flashing... :mrgreen:

Thanks for the feedback guys

This all helps.

I got a new file this morning, with KODI 14.1 and few other changes.

Will keep you posted as to our results

Just installed Feb beta on my 1800e 2015, 1st attempt was unsuccessful only got to 80% as others have experienced. Success on second try, all seems to be working except WiFi.
I can use ethernet to connect, but WiFi won't turn on. I also tried going straight into main android settings and turn on from there but WiFi still won't turn on. If anyone has any advice please advise!
