The process is the same as with the T8-S Plus - please power up your device and then click the circle with six dots, to bring up the list of all installed applications (don't forget to ensure you're in Android if you can't exit Kodi!) and start the OTA Updater app.

You should see a notification about this new update being available, if not click the bottom entry to force a re-check. You can now click the download button.

As the firmware downloads, you can close the initial pop up window, as the progress bar is more reliable in the main screen. Once the download has completed, you'll be asked if you want to install it (click the Install button). Please watch the screen carefully as you may see a request similar to the one below. You need to click the Grant button for the device to proceed with installing the update.
