KODI 17 Krypton Setup and New Exodus Covenant Install
Kodi has come a long ways from its early days as XBMC and continues to only get better.
Kodi 17.3 Krypton is the newest version of Kodi to be released and has some major interface changes.
To test it out go to the Kodi download page and download it here. https://kodi.tv/download/
At first the interface looks very different from the old Kodi interface but underneath there is a lot of familiarity.
KODI 17 Krypton Setup and New Exodus Covenant Install Overview
The new default Skin is called Estuary.
Kodi 17 Krypton has some big upgrades and improvements over previous versions.
Beside the updated Estuary Skin interface many new features are being added to Kodi 17 including native support for Amilogic ARM 4K chips, Android de-interlacing to improve live TV streams and much more.

Steps to Setup Unknown Sources in Kodi 17 Krypton
Kodi 17 needs a box checked called Unknown Sources to install add-ons such as Covenant.
Click the Settings Icon in the top left corner

A warning box will come up click Yes
To move back with a Windows install right click an empty space on the screen.
After Unknown Sources have been set to ON, repositories and add-ons can be installed.
The steps are similar to older versions of Kodi with a repository URL needed to be setup and than the add-ons installed.
Below is a step-by-step install of Covenant . The same steps can be used to install any add-on by changing the URL to the repository it is in.
Using a good VPN with Kodi is always suggested for privacy and security. If you need a good low cost VPN to use with Kodi Try IPVanish it has multiple high speed servers with no throttling or logs.

    Thanks guys! Specto Fork worked for me.
    For others having problems, scroll through comments above, there are a few links to step by step installations for Specto Fork.

    Is it sensible to get the IP Vanish.
    I’ve managed to install Kodi and get it to work but I’m not sure if I should buy the IP Vanish, or is it just a needless expense.

  9. John

    Anyone know why my stick will not load anything.
    Done the add source bit, fusion etc, when I try to install from zip file the fusion folder is empty.
    Can anyone help please.

  13. JhonafinStabmost

    you need to get the repo https:// archive.org/details/repository.exodus-1.0.0

    you will also need urlresolver http:// kodi-addons.club/addon/script.module.urlresolver/3.0.32

    you will also need the three exodus zips:

    Install in this order:

    working on 17.3

    1. Kim

      can you provide instructions on how to install all that stuff to a semi-newbie? I am trying to install exodus via the super repository. I installed the super repo and tried installing exodus, i get an error message “the dependency on the script module urlresolver version”. I don’t know what that means. I previously tried installing exodus via fusion but had the same issues as everybody else. Don’t know if the three exodus files you mention have been downloaded with fusion in the file manager or not. Thank you for your help!

    1. Teddy

      I’m using flixnet in place of exodus seems to be working the same as exodus

  14. Jennifer

    Mine keeps getting sick at step seven saying couldn’t retrieve directory information. Anyone help me?

    1. karin

  15. Shyshy

    I decided to reset my fire stick and redo kodi now it’s saying can’t connect to fusion what do I do is there another way

    1. scoot

      The fusion website has shut down. not sure if there will be anything to do now that it is not a website anymore…

    2. Jay

      Fusion isn’t working anymore I was able to get exodus but took 15 min just for that addon ur best bet is using a build nolimit build is working good

  16. CPTSparks91

    I have downloaded both the Exodus and SuperRepo repositories and when I go to install Exodus, it just fails 2to install everytime. HELP PLEASE

  17. Philip

  18. Pgo

    Thanks, it works for me after the instructions updated to have the “repository.exodus-2.0.0.zip” is step 14.

  19. Dr.Kaco

    I tried srp.nu will not install addons…..seems they are axing all the servers gang! 🙁

  20. sozone

    sadly they have been taking down the servers one by one. Knew it was gonna happen one with so many ppl trying to make quick money by loading on the sticks and boxes and then these idiots advertise openly smh. I think the days of kodi are done

    1. Rena

      actually exodus is working, just install it through the super repsitory instead of tvaddons http://srp.nu is the repo address (for those that know how to add a repository, if you do not, please follow the above and instead of fusion.tvaddons etc. use the one i gave or google a how to)

      1. valorie banks

        i tried srp.nu but it does not follow the same example as the above its says
        in that folder

  21. Sean

    1. D James

      Me too… two sticks …one got wiped out, now JUST frustration! I sidelayed my OWN ( because as TOTAL N00B… had originally wiped it out without realizing that’s what I was going to do, so I had to learn how to rebuild). But..this is just beyond me

  23. Wendy

    Exodus says could not connect repository. N im stuck what to do from there help

  24. Demi

    All the steps worked for me, except the last bit – “installing Exodus” at the very end. It keeps saying it failed and I feel like I am going to scream.
    Please help

  25. Rahman R Hudson

    With all of us getting the same error it seems as though the server is down. Been trying for 2 days now and still not working. I got past dispensary error but its taking forever to downlaod and when it gets to 99% it starts over. Is there any onther programs out there other than kodi

    1. D James

      Okay…BUT, if it was loaded on another FS…which I have… and it still works PERFECTLY. ..? Is it still the Servers?
      Completely LOST

    Need to make sure you have indigo installed first. Go back into install from zip go into fusion click where it says begin here install indigo and make sure it’s updated.

    1. AK

      THat didnt work either. It took so long and nothing happened.

    2. Kelley
