There is installers for most any type of hardware from a Windows PC to a smartphone.
No matter the hardware Kodi is installed to the interface and settings remain the same.

    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 just had it working a couple of days ago,really bummed about it not working with my other Amazon devices…regret updating to 17.6 kodi! I hope they fix it soon.

      covenant, ares, and all add-ons associated with colossus repo , Including the repo itself have been deleted due tolerable threats by netflix

    Covenant does not come up on my smartphone. Install and everything worked does it have another name.

    1. Kam

      I think the server is already down… it says coudn’t retrieve directory information. This could be due to the network not being connected. Would you like to add it anyway ?

  7. Garry

    Thank you for your help. Ive tried so many different sources and got nowhere. So annoying and frustrating.. but your source worked perfect. So thanks again. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§

  9. Rozina

    Thanks for the step by step instructions to download the Covenant aadd-on,
    However, I still can’t get to play the Behead episodes. The message says “no steam available”.
    I am in Canada and Aftershock just stopped suddenly and I wad successful to add-on Covenant and even this doesn’t work now.
    Very Sad 😒.
    Any help or suggestions please πŸ‘ƒ

    1. Rozina

      Sorry typo.. I meant Behead series ..a not Behead.. That’s how I feel now.

  10. Fox

    I get to step 11 and I’m in able to actually click the file…so I went back and did everything a second time and I get an unable to connect message and that the directory information wasn’t retrievable. Any suggestions as to why?

  11. Christian

    I have Kodi 17.4 with Covenant and I can’t find any more the option to download movies.
    With 17.3 and Exodus it was possible.
    How do I resolve thios?

  12. Angie

    As I go through the steps I reach step #18 and I get a pop-up asking me to select a version and I’m not sure which one to choose. bother are version 999.999.6 but one say super repo and the other says ares project.

  13. Debby Hogue

    What is the difference between Exodus and Elysium? I have the latest Kodi 17.4 and i am using just the Firestick. Sometimes when i try to load Kodi now, I get the loading circle, but it just spins forever. I have gone to the device in settings and restated 5 times in a row and it will work at that point. But if i put it to sleep for several days, unused, i have to restart device again. What could be causing this issue?
    So basically, Im asking 2 questions. Thank you in advance for your advice.

  14. JC Savaria

    I get stuck with number 11. one clic two clics or one long clic on smash repo, nothing happens. please answer my problem. Thank you JC

    1. Keith

      Try d/l the file again and make sure your path is correct. One 2x click and you should see clickable.zip file..

  15. Diana

    I am trying to update from Kodi 17.3 to 17.4 on m Sony Bravia 4k. What option should I download from the kodi page? Or should I do it from the Google Play Store?
    Is this update neccessary to install Covenant?

  16. Sandi MacDougall

    On #13 I get “Colossus Repository Failed” I did a cut and paste of the command. Everything was perfect.

  17. Peter Bombeeck

    Hi All, I get stuck on step 15, this happens for ALL repositories except the kodi repository.
    I tried everything allready and becoming desperit.
    My problem started after reinstalling Kodi on my android smart TV, before, it worked, but because of several ‘small’ problems i decided to clean install KODI. (I never do that again :-))
    Kodi runs fine on my android smartfone and windows PC on the same network.
    Can somebody guid me in te right direction? And YES install from ZIP works fine so the adress is good.

  18. Joshua Williamson

    I am stuck at number four when you are supposed to push none after clicking on add source . Nothing pops up after pushing add source


    Instructions and steps are easy. got it loaded and installed on my Galaxy S8 plus with no problems thank you..

  20. Melody

    2. SB

      Tried Ares, Super repo, Caz and the instructions above- Nothing working for me. Cant get it to install.

    3. Dafydd

      Exodus will not allow me to download it I have been trying for about 3 hours lol, If I don’t laugh I will break my kodi box, can’t get anything to work lol. By the looks of things it’s not just me, sort it out server.

  24. Greg

    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.

  25. LaineyC

    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.

  26. 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.

        Hi Bob321
        Spector Fork already installed but when I drill down to movies or TVs shows…. nothing comes up. What is wrong. Tried many times. The blue disk cones up and turn for a few minutes and nothing happens. Please help!

  30. 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!
