How to Install KODI 17 Krypton and Exodus on an Android TV Box
Kodi has become the most popular way to stream video content to an android TV box.
 
Kodi when combined with a good add-on, can stream most any type of videos that can be thought of.
 
While Kodi can be played on many platforms from a old computer to a Raspberry Pi 3, but android TV boxes have become the go to hardware.
 
Android TV boxes combine fast hardware along with a nice box that fits in with a TV entertainment center.
 
Installing Kodi into an android box is simple as it is in the Play Store and can be installed like any other app. It also can be downloaded from the main Kodi site and installed.
 
While installing Kodi itself is easy, most get confused when it is time to install the add-ons which are what let Kodi stream content.
How to Install KODI on Android TV Box
With that in mind below are the steps to installing Kodi 17 Krypton and the popular Exodus add-on on your android TV box, the same will go for any android device.
 
If you have a older version of Kodi such as Jarvis it can be updated to Kodi 17 Krypton and settings should keep.
 
Of course things can always go wrong with any upgrade so there is no guarantee. Also if you have a very old Kodi box it may be best to stick with Kodi 16.1 depending on the hardware the box has.
 
To install Exodus into Kodi Jarvis the old instructions are at the bottom of the page.
 
Kodi 17 Krypton needs Android 5.0 lollipop or higher to install.

    17.0 & 16.1 were not compatible with my M8S Android box so I downloaded the next one down. During the step by step set up I got to Step 11 where it says to click on Kodi repos and that isnt even in the list…..cant remember what name was there but I clicked it anyway and got lost.

    Can you help me with information as to how to return a box to Idroidnation? They give no return address on their website or any information on returns other than you have to get permission from them to return and to go to your “account”! There is no where on the website called “account”. I am so disgusted. My husband purchased the box directly from them instead of from Amazon! And this is what you get. Thought maybe you might have some information to help us. T hank you.
