How To Install Kodi On a Android Phone 2017

Kodi is a popular media center that when combined with add-ons allows for streaming all kinds of content such as TV shows and movies.
In the past Kodi was confined to a media center box such as a dedicated computer. Now Kodi can be installed on a android phone or tablet, and play the same media anywhere bandwidth is available to stream content.
Kodi 17 Krypton is the newest version to be released and has some major updated and interface changes.
Kodi 17 Krypton should install on any android smartphone or tablet that has at least Android 5.0 Lollipop or higher installed.

To install Kodi on a android phone or tablet and watch your favorite TV Show / Movie is a two step process.
First we need to install Kodi than we need to install a program called an Add-on to stream the content.
Be sure to be connected to a WiFi signal unless you have a unlimited data plan as streaming movies uses a lot of bandwidth and data.
Below is written step-by-step instructions for how to do both first installing Kodi then the popular Exodus add-on.
Steps For Installing Kodi To an Android.
The first step is to install Kodi from the Play Store or from the Kodi site.

Once Kodi is installed on your android add-ons need to be added to Kodi to stream content.
Exodus is currently the most popular Kodi addon but there are many more available.

Finding movie or TV show within Exodus is easy to do what confuses most is how the servers work.
Once a video is selected to play a server list will come up with available streams.
Servers can become full and kick a connection or start to buffer, if this happens simply move on to another server.
Sometimes 4-5 servers will need to be tried before a good one is found.
The servers are simple enough to understand, basically if one becomes full and doesn’t allow any more connections, than a server that is not full needs to be found.

    Woot!woot! I’ve had kodi on my firestick and finally got it on my Samsung galaxy s7. Love it. I also got it on my tablet an ellipsis 8 (I had to update it to lollipop but it was simple after that.) No issues installing or streaming. Thank you guys for putting these steps out there. Amazeballs!

  4. Henrietta

    Hey guys, I updated to Kodi Krypton the other day but it hasn’t been acting right since. You about have to do a performance of the Fonz from Happy days to get it to work. Kodi keeps reverting back to the home screen after booting up. Also, my box is full and I have cleared stuff out and it keeps showing its full. I know I can’t clear data for Kodi because it will delete content. Please shed some light on this issue and what I can do. Thanks!

    I tried downloading it on 2 different tablets. A ZTE tab and a acer tab. Both tablets crashed after a few minutes. I uninstalled the app.

  6. Choco-latte

    I have an Oppo F9. Whenever I try to install the Exodus Add-on it comes up with a little tab saying “The dependency on script.module.metahandler version”. How do I fix this to install the Exodus Add-on?

  7. John

    Everything seems to work until the final install step. I go to video add-ons, exodus, install. But then a notification pops up saying “Exodus: The dependency on script.module.metahandler version” and then nothing. The same for Pheonix. What am I missing?

  8. Maggiexxxx

    1. JC

      Press on the program icon for few seconds and a menu will popup to allow you to save to favorites.

  9. Chucky

    Thank you. I kept running into roadblocks with the addon installer not being able to be installed. Your site was one of the few that recommended for the android phones to set the system settings to ‘Expert’. I believe that made everything work.

    Thanks so much for your great instructions! My buddy told me about KODI briefly, but wasn’t able to offer any installation instructions (I think his kid installed it for him, lol). After a quick internet search I found your instructions. I followed them, and am currently watching one of my favorite series! thanks again!
