    SOLUTION FOR “normal download method failed” AT STEP 25

    I have successfully downloaded/installed Kodi Krypton 17.3, and the Ares Wizard addon, but the process to download/install Covenant was giving me the error messages: “The normal download method failed. Do you want to try the alternative method? Please note there will be no indications of progress so please be patient.” and “Download failed. Please report this error on our forum”

    I looked on the Ares Project blog here: http:/ /www.ares-project-blog.com/kodi-add-on-reviews/covenant-exodus-revived/ where it says “This install will require a zip file, this is the original and official source for Colossus repo: https://github.com/Colossal1/repository.colossus/raw/master/repository.colossus/repository.colossus-999.999.6.zip download here”

    From here there are two ways of doing it. Go back to the Downloader app, write that massive link there, save it somewhere, and follow the instructions on the blog post to extract from zip.

    Or, open Kodi > open Ares Wizard addon > select “Browse Addons” > select “Repositories” (third one down) > select “Colossus” > select “Install”

    Once that’s done, go back to Kodi > click “Add-ons” (like steps 8 to 14ish in this tutorial) > click the Package Installer Icon > INSTALL FROM REPOSITORY > find “Colossus Repository” that you have just installed via Ares (and click that) > select “Video add-ons” > select “Covenant”

    And there you have it. That’s fixed it for me, hope it also works for you, and I hope the guys update this post to help others having the same hiccup. Good luck!

    Firstly, thank you for the download instructions for Covenant and Genesis Reborn. I found them clear and effective. Following your step-by-step instructions, each download only took a matter of a minute or so to successfully complete. Much appreciated!
    Having done the installations I would now like to be able to use these addons to download videos. I have done several searches for help in doing this but the information is scant and unreliable.
    Can you help?
    Many thanks
    Harry.

      Hi. Covenant is a streaming add-on, it looks for video streams of the show or movie on various pirate websites and then plays any valid stream found. Streaming is temporary, there is no full download taking place.
      In order to download what you’re watching on Kodi, use the Dreamcatcher add-on.

    How do you get Covenant to select best feed automatically like Exodus did?

      Not sure if it has this feature, try looking for an “Auto-Play” option in the settings.

    Use ares wizard. Find diggz and load Xenon XXX to get everything . Pulse sux and everything sux. I only use Diggz stuff and find xenon the best Kodi 17.3 is ok but you don’t need to update from kodi if u have a shitty android box

    Thank you soooo much!! Works like a charm! Took out Exodus and replaced with Covenant, what a big difference! Tried to manual update but didn’t work. Had to close out and reopen then it updated on it’s own. Thanks to all the people involved making this possible. Geniuses!! Every one of them!

    This addon works, but the devs could have at least labeled the different options available instead of using icons because where’s the search for actor option, year, etc.

    I had blank dots at first. You can (blindly) click through them and there are movies. Eventually dots filled in with descriptions.

      I had the same thing. The art work would not install.

      If you go back into repositories, into the Colossus repository and manually update covenant, the artwork will install and the menus will appear.

      It probably is still downloading. When the server gets busy it takes longer for the file to download.
