Woehooo finaly found this solution to run Kodi on my Minix Neo X8h+
I almost threw it out and bought an new box.
But ... yes there is a big BUT, I cannot update any of the addons in Kodi. Aparently the Root CA file in use is not up to date anymore and I cannot seem to update it.
One thing to mention: I'm still running it from an SD card which works good enough for me.
I have checked:
- network connection
- error log
The error log show these messages:
2021-10-02 11:16:07.379 T:2890924912 ERROR: CCurlFile::FillBuffer - Failed: SSL peer certificate or SSH remote key was not OK(60)

I updated some of the addons by copying the addon including all dependencies as ZIP files via SMB to the device. After that the addons do install. So nothing wrong with anything else.
Also I checked the cacert.pem file and this is from some year ago. I think that is the issue. Overwriting the cacert.pem file is not possible. Message "This is a read only file system".
Can someone please help??
Check the fantastic works of DTECH or you need to compile/install the add-ons yourself.
There're no official updates anymore so we need to be creative.
