    I installed the app by following the steps above for my step father. Tv shows seemed to work however when I click on a movie and select a stream it acts like it’s loading but then kicks back to all available streams. I’ve restarted the fire stick. And it just does the loading. And then when I try on mine it doesn’t act like it’s going to load. It just sits on the movie menu. Could someone please help. I’m so confused

  2. Rano


    You made my day! I tried in many ways but the step by step process you provide is just simply awesome. Thanks a lot, dear!

  3. karen

    Wow.. thank you so much.. I had to re-format my computer and lost KODI.. and the last time I tried to download exodus it was a week long shit storm. Your directions were clear and easy! It took me maybe 10 minutes!

    Many Thanks!!!


  4. Juu

    Hi there

    I followed all the instructions did exactly what I was meant to do but I’m still having issues streaming -PLEASE HELP ASAP

  5. kim

    none of that is my issue, my issue is when i add the addon it gives me a error message that says it cant connect to network. Please help me find out whats going on

    1. Rayse

      Hi, sorry to hear….usually that error means you did not spell the source exactly as shown or that the source is actually no longer good. Unfortunately there is a lot of information out there that should be deleted or have a status on it when its no longer valid; but what doesn’t work for you may work for someone else; or it may work again one day. I have it on my laptop and doest seem to work anymore too. A BIG thanks to the creators of these KODI repositories . Thanks, and Thanks, Again. And maybe: Oops you’ll do it again like Brittany.

  6. Toni Long

    I am having the same problem as another person when I click on zip file there is no repository file so I am just stuck I started all over again and got the same result can this be fixed if so explain it to me like I am a novice because I am.

  7. Paul

    Step 12 problem where the -file does not have the repository zip file. Empty file. Any suggestions?

  8. Jim Greene

    On my Kodi settings pagei only have six choices. There is no addons choice. You have ten choices in tutorial. How can get the addons choice on Kodi homepage so I can proceed with the download.

  9. Eriqa

    Hello, why aren’t none of the tv networks such as Bravo, BET, &VH1 working??? Its been like this for months now. Yes I updated my kodi.

  10. Sonja

    Thank you for this – I finally got Kodi working on my android box after several failed attempts. This was so straight forward and easy to follow.

  11. nikesha

  15. DM

    Hi. Apologizing in advance for what I’m sure is a silly question and if it has already been asked/answered.
    When updating and adding all of these new things. Should I delete all of the previous things?

    Thanks 😁

    1. The flow

      Why apologize, none of us know what hell we’re doing. My Girl always handles this. You and I can do it. It’s just that we get too impatient. Correct ? Or you just have t figured it out at all ? If not, it’s all good bro. BECAUSE WE SHOULDNT HAVE TO. Repositories, zip files. Notice how they word it as if we use these words everyday ?

      “Umm that’s a touching story. But I asked this question over a month ago. Are you gonna help me or what ? “

      Yup, right now. You said “should I delete everything” but you get nervous thinking you’ll never get it back right ? I was the same way. Delete the entire kodi deal. BOOM !! Do it !! Turn the thing on and get nervous because you just lost everything.

      Fear not bro. Follow the above steps and you have it all current, updated, the whole deal. Once you really get ballsy you go onto YouTube to find stations you cannot access or find. That’s s whole different level of being pissed. Trial and error. Only way I learned. Good look. ( Find-The-Flow)

  20. Marius

  22. Joe

    You are a god send thought I was buggered. Now I have an idea on how to add Phoenix etc…
    thank you

  23. Cody

    I’ve followed multiple guides and each one is having an issue for me. My friend pointed me to this guide, yet I’m still getting an issue at step 11. I’ve allowed unknown sources, tried Kodi in admin and non admin mode… When I get to step 11, and click xvbmc file, I just get a loading circle for a moment and then nothing happens…

    1. Toneloc427

      You probably made a mistake is step 5; the url needs to be entered EXACTLY as instructed.

    1. Mechnizer

      Works, just follow the instructions, best Ive seen so far . good job .

  24. JD

    HOLY FAZZOLLI!!! By far the easiest, most self explanatory, quickest, etc downloading process of ANY sort of actual technical doing. Thank Google, Kodi, as well as any and every additional parties involved.

  25. Sarah

    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.

  26. stacie

    I am trying to load KODI 17.6 – i get to install zip file and the file i named per the video is not loading or installing or even there as an option!?!? WTF?!!

    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.

    1. John

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

    2. Brittany

      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.

  31. Michal Aharonov
