Covenant is a Kodi addon that is a fork of Exodus and Genesis before it. Since Lambda stopped updating the Exodus code new developers have taken Exodus, renamed it, and updated the code.
The interface is the same with no changes so far except some behind the scene fixes.
Since its release the many downloads have been overloading the servers mainly the Smash Repo.
Ares now has it available for install from the Ares Wizard which is a very reliable source. Ares takes a few more steps to install but is a one stop Kodi Wizard to install many other Add-ons, Builds, and other tools for Kodi.
For those that have Ares installed skip to the steps needed. Below are the steps to install Ares and the Covenant add-on.
Need a good Kodi friendly VPN to use that has no logs, unlimited bandwidth, and worldwide servers, Try IPVanish it has multiple worldwide high speed servers with no throttling or logs.
