    OMF Thank you! Oh I was going crazy til I found this page and then followed your step by step instructions and it worked!!! I know I shouldn’t be that excited, but I use this add-on a lot! like 6hrs/week. I might have had to get a new hobby or done more exercise or something.

    Followed the steps exactly. Took 5 minutes tops. Works like a charm! Quickest unlock I’ve done yet.

    I have followed every step to the T. Yet every time I try to click on Ares Project all I get is a continuous loading icon. I have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling Kodi about 15 times to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      I can only tell you it looks as though the ares project repository and everything with it is gone.

      Ares has been shut down and will not be coming back up. They were catching to much legal heat. I had this same issue last night.
