Our Picks For The Top 5 Best Kodi Builds 2017
After anyone uses Kodi for a while and understands how it works, often many would like to customize it.
One of the easiest ways to do this is with a pre-setup Kodi Build that someone else has already created and install it.
This is also a good option for setting up new Kodi machines since it will also come with pre-installed add-ons setup and ready to run. There are many Kodi builds to choose and everyone will have their own favorite.

    HI, I did something wrong , I have Kodi installed and when I go to my apps i click Kodi and it flashed The Beast but it’s not installed right. How do I start over or get it to work? Thank you so much

    1. WirelessHack

      If something has gone wrong with the install than delete Kodi and reinstall it. It is always best to load a build on a new install as strange things can happen sometimes.

    2. John

      Download complete kodi setup. And it will install any build you want by itself. Easy

  2. Esther

    HI, Got the Beast installed but I dont have alot of the thinks you mention above. When I go to watch a movie it gives it in alot of differnt setting to download / stream some end with LQ Or MQ. It will start to download and then says working and click off. what did I do wrong, please help. thank you

    1. WirelessHack

      Kodi video streams will kick connections and buffer sometimes. This happens when too many people are using the same server. This is also the reason links to many servers are shown to stream from.

      If a video link is buffering or kicks a connection simply choose another server from the list. Sometimes 2-3 servers need to be tried before getting a good one.

    Hi. My brother lives in the algae, Portugal. He has a real problem with watching TV there. He’s spent fortunes on getting people in to set up things that work. Then they don’t. I wondered if an amazon fire stick with kodi beast installed on would work there ?
    Any ideas if it would. If you think it would I’ll buy him one and post it. Could you let me know please. Regards Rob.

    1. WirelessHack

      The best thing likely is to use an old computer an load Kodi on it for free.

    2. max

      Get a Raspberry Pi!!! It’s limitless!
      If you want cheaper, you can look for the Orange Pi!

      I use it for kodi and a emulator for snes!

  4. Darren


    When I loaded the beast build the programs are uploaded but the cool background screens arnt there or thumbnails so I’m left with the boring old Kodi interface, why is that?

    1. Curtman

      I had that problem once. Probably you didn’t pull the power cord out when it told you to on a android box?

      If you click something instead, lots of stuff gets broken.

  5. Kevin

    The beast is over rated and pretty lame go with the ares Wizard so much more choice…

    1. Lisa Deschamps

      Ya, I found the beast awful, loaded it and put on a few shows and checked out a few movies and it looked like I had pop bottle glasses on, not even cool

  6. Damon Glaude

    I see power was not one of the builds mentioned, is there a particular reason why not. I’ve recently went to the 16.0 Jarvis which is only offered now, but it appears to have a lot of glitches. The 15.2 seemed to be better, now I’m thinking of going back to the beast as I found there’s a new software out, any additional thought or suggestions on this? Thanks

  7. A. Helton

    Hi, I did a fresh install of kodi 16.1 and silencerom. Everything looks great, but every time I try to use ANY add on it says no stream available. I know I’m connected to the internet! What am I missing?

  8. Vicky

    I’m having same problem no streams on Amy add PNS what’s the reason?? Also where’s the settings option on these builds ?

  9. Mike lopez

    Try getting pulse CCM by its my fave I’ve tried all builds mentioned and it’s shortcuts work

  10. Wilkie

    I. Have mikes karaoke on kodi Jarvis is there any way to get xbmc karaoke or any other one to make my karaoke list bigger

  11. Lisa

    I downloaded the beast, put on a few shows, tried a few movies, and all the programs looked like I was wearing pop bottle glasses…so off it came. Looking for a different build.

  12. Cam W

    Schism builds are no longer available as of September 30th. Was my favorite build and had to find out the hard way that it is no longer downloadable.

  13. k9lover


    1. E.B.

      cCloud is probably the most reliable LiveTV addon I’ve used. But I do agree, noone has SEC football…once you get through all of the UK football or NFL, all I ever see is PAC12…

  14. Bigdaddybry

    Check out wookie lite for the firestick it’s the ONLY build that has been reliable an trust me I’ve tried 15 of them

  15. Lee

    What’s a good replacement for the All in One I want a nice appealing layout

  16. Michael

    Is there any way to preview the builds without downloading them? And why are there so many things inside of the subcategories that do not work?

  17. E.B.

    Dude, who put together this list? What about HyperTT (Top Tutorials), Tomb Raider Wookie or Apollo AIONE????

    1. Wolfknife

      I’m using that apollo now and I like it. I hated the ultra TT though

      1. Chris Eagleson

        I use Apollo for about a week then it started saying no files no movies no shows had too remove and I’m upset because it was awesomeness.

  18. Diana

    I had the beast a while back, got a ton of buffering and it would freeze up on me tons. I hated it. And it was a pain to update or reinstall it. Download ares wizard and pick anything but the beast. I like pulse ccm, prompts you to update, and you dont have to go through hoops to access the ares wizard. As far as football goes, nfl is what i watch, unless you have super dooper high speed internet, its kind of impossible. Plus when the games are on, the servers are so busy. I gave up watching nfl on the stick a long time ago. But on ares wiz, the top 20 builds are listed, pick one of the top 5 if you dont like it get back on ares wiz, and download another. Too easy. Just dont download the beast.

  19. Reggie

    I just got a Tickboxtv and it has a lot of builds that I just click to install. It’s really easy and I have 10 to choose from. Are the other new boxes coming this way or is this one unique?

  20. Jay Hova

    Just new tech not downloading on stick…. great repo by the way…. had before on old f stick…… but tried to add to another stick with no avail……

  21. Tracy

    I use genetic simple build V4..tried all the others mentioned and found wookie and gentec to be the best

  22. Jeff

    Would appreciate any help on which Ares build to install regarding live sports and TV in the u k many thanks. Big Jeff.

  23. Jamie

    I use the no limits build and love it i have also put it on many other firesticks and have no problems at all it will be the only build u will ever need has adult version also has versions for the box and for the firestick try it out

  24. max mancinelli

    I agree, no limits is awesome. The latest enhanced firestick works fine with the regular builds. If you choose the firestick build, it will lack some features, like the moviedb and widgets.

  25. Waggoner

    I was surprised to see that Titanium was not on the list. I’ve been using Titanium for a month or two and really like it. Why not review Titanium? Can these builds be better than Titanium??

  26. antonio fernandes

    I have installed Vibe Krypton 17 skin from Echo Wizard. Made some personal settup modifications, but when kodi is going down, I lost all personal configurations and kodi become with default settup. I change some addons shortcuts and skins but sometimes loose everything, time lost.
    How can I record my settups configurations in order to have my personal configurations every time kodi is going down or every time I turn it off? Whar do I have to do? What is missing?
    Thank you so much
    Best regards

  27. Steven Peters

    I downloaded the no limits magic build on the EvolvTV Android 8810. It downloaded, clicked to open and waited the 15 min. to update before using. However, half way through I got the message “server may be down| and did not complete the updates. 2 hours later and still waiting…can`t watch anything…and images just keep on flashing. Not sure what to do…if it will correct itself…or i have to uninstall and re-install or if I am even able to…please advise…much appreciated.

  28. Deko

    Absolutely stand behind No Limits Magic build….great interface! My only issue is that it doesn’t close properly…when I want to quit I have to resort to using the Task Manager. But its beautiful and extremely functional…many many “channels” already included.

  29. Steve

    I have a Raspberry PI 3 and run Fire TV Guru, I have played about with most builds and FTV is by far the best, great community on Facebook as well. I install it on Amazon Firesticks for folks as well and although it’s nothing like the speed I get with my PI 3 Hardware it still runs pretty good for £35 but honestly guys pay the extra £15 and get the PI Hut Kit especially for people wanting to use it for Kodi.

  30. THG

    No mention of the Blaze key. It has builds for both Jarvis and Krypton and has a really cool looking Earth skin.
