How To Install Exodus On Kodi

This tutorial will teach you how to install Exodus on Kodi.  Exodus is a 3rd party Kodi addon which means that it is not supported in an way by the developers of Kodi.

Exodus was originally available to download and install through the TV Addons Indigo tool but since they have recently shut down, there hasn’t been an easy way to do this until now.

As of this writing Exodus is still the most popular Kodi addon due to its enormous choice of movies, television shows, kids shows, and documentaries that are available.

The Exodus Kodi Addon provides some nice filtering options which allows you to choose movies and television shows based off the following Genres; Action, Adventure, Animation, Anime, Biography, Comedy, Crime, Documentary, Drama, Family, Fantasy, History, Horror, Music, Musical, Mystery, Romance, Science Fiction, Sport, Thriller, War, and Western.

Some other nice categories exist within Genesis such as Most Popular, Most Voted, Box Office, Oscar Winners, In Theaters, and New Movies.

Keep in mind that many of the movies listed under the In Theaters section within Exodus are low quality or have Chinese subtitles hard-coded into them, which you can’t remove.  In my opinion, it is best to view the movies that are currently on Blu-ray or DVD.

There are some excellent 3rd party services and Kodi addons that you can also integrate with Exodus through the Tools section.  You can pair your Trakt account with Exodus so you can keep track of what you have watched on all devices where you use Kodi.  You can also setup the RealDebrid unrestricted downloader service which will help eliminate buffering from within Exodus.

After you follow the steps below, you will also have the Smash Repo installed which will allow you to install other popular addons as well.

Simply follow the screenshot tutorial below and you will be up and running with Exodus in no time.

Bonus Video included below!  After you have installed Exodus, be sure to watch the video at the bottom of the page which will teach you how to autoplay the best Kodi Exodus streams without the requirement to authorize with a code.  This is a must for anyone who uses the Exodus Kodi Addon.

Important!  If you already have the old Exodus Repository installed, you must delete it.  To do that, click the Add-ons menu item, then click My add-ons, click Add-on repository, click the Exodus repository and then click uninstall.

Note:  Exodus is not being updated anymore as developer has abandoned the project.  I suggest that you install Covenant Kodi Add-on instead as this is the new replacement developed by original Exodus developers.  


  • Launch Kodi
  • Click the settings icon which looks like a gear or cog in top left-hand corner under Kodi logo Kodi Settings Icon
  • Click System settings

  • Click your back button on remote or keyboard until you are back at the Kodi home screen
  • Click Add-ons menu item
  • Click the small “open box” icon at top left side of page under the “Add-ons heading” Install Kodi Addon

  • Wait until you see Exodus Add-on installed message.  Important – this could take up to a minute so be patient and don’t exit out before it has installed all of the dependent files that come with the Exodus addon.
  • Exit to home screen of Kodi and hover over Addons menu item.  You will see Exodus listed under the Video Add-ons category.  Click Exodus shortcut to launch.
  • After you install Exodus on Kodi and launch for the first time, you may notice that the menu items are blank.  Simply exit to the home screen of Kodi and restart the application.

Frequently Asked Question – Is Exodus on Kodi Legal?

The laws vary in each country.  As with many types of technology, it all depends on what you are viewing through Kodi addons such as Exodus.  There are public domain movies and tv shows that may be accessed through Exodus, so in cases like these, you would never be in violation.  There are also movies and television shows that have copyrights that are accessible on Exodus and in many countries, this would be copyright infringement.

It is suggested that you use a VPN whenever using Kodi so you your streaming logs are kept confidential.  By connecting to a VPN prior to using Kodi, you will protect your anonymity so your Internet Service Provider will not know what you are accessing through Kodi addons such as Exodus.

    • Dj Rainey

      I have the SAME exact issue. Please help TROY? Thank you.

  • Herve Lengagne

    Now got 17.3. thanks Try for your time and effort making these things easier and also for your advice about when to upgrade.. Is it just me or is the user interface just SO messy compared to the older versions? AM I missing some settings? Before I get the “well it’s not for the amateur etc I have some experience, I have constantly used computers even before the Sinclair Spectrum. I want my family to use Kodi quickly and easily and the options of removing the menu items as we don’t use it for music or photos and to customise which addons are seen was good.

  • SheliaH

    Thank you! ?

  • Christina Hodges

    My kodi stopped working after the update. I uninstalled kodi and reinstalled kodi 17.3 and used your instructions to install indigo and Exodus. I followed the instructions on the above video through the tools under kodi. I turned kodi off and turned it back on but still just loads but doesn’t bring up any videos. Only through search can I watch videos. Please advise.

  • Lawrence Lermer

    Why when I go on KODI and want to see guardians of the galaxy vol 2 do I get only Doctor Strange?? Do I get better videos the longer I wait to view the movie??

  • Lesley Brown

    Just followed your video on auto play. Thank you and double thank you for showing how to disable providers. Torba was the Bain of my life!! ?

  • Ashley Simpson

    Good evening! I have been trying to watch many different shows and movies on Exodus and every time I click on one of the streams it comes up telling me to “Visit this website * (Always something different) and verify your account”. I am not sure if this is normal or not. 🙁

    • Hi Ashley, see the video at bottom of page above as I go through a fix for this.

  • Tania

    Have been trying to install Exodus ( as per the instructions above) but keep getting the error message when I preses install: Indigo error, check the log for more information. What am I doing wrong? What should I do? Can someone please help me?

  • Jordan Zigler Crosby

    I followed your instructions but when I went back to open up Kodi on my firestick it’s just a black screen? Any suggestions

  • John Garza

    Hey Troy! Thank you for all the wonderful videos. I liked your page and put all my info in but I was not sent a free guide, is this still available? I did check my spam. Thanks bro!

  • Ann

    Am running Kodi on Windows 10. Have gone through each step of the above installation process. When I get to “Click the .zip file that appears in the window”, I do so but then, a moment later, Kodi locks up and I have to shut it down. I have repeated this a number of times but cannot get past this. Any idea what I am doing incorrectly? Thank you.

  • Kathleen A Dombrowski

    Hi Troy, Have you heard about any problems w/Indigo going from 2.01 to 2.02? I am at my wits end. It takes forever to load if at all then all types of error messages. I thought I had it working and then same thing w/Exodus. I did a quick search and other people are having the same problem that I am. I think the post below me is experiencing some issues also. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The .zip file just sits there forever as she states.

  • Kathleen A Dombrowski

    Hi Again, I just delved a little deeper and found out they are working on the servers. They are working hard to have back up soon. Hope this helps others w/same issue.

    • Jim Casy

      nope. lol.

  • John Z

    Good day, I have installed up to exodus. Every time I try to add it it says “file is not a zip file”. Please help

    • Marie Sylvester-Roberts

      I am getting the same errors.

      • Megan Faugl

        So am I

    • John Z

      Must be something going on then NOT on our end but on the server if more than I am having the issue. Any one with any ideas?
      It has to be something with the newer version of Kodi cause I have v.16+ on my other fire and it works perfect. That may be a starting point of where the issue lays.

    • Coy Latosha Maddron

      Yes mine is saying it’s not a zip file too what do I do?

  • Tashika Evans

    The same thing was happing to me, it was also saying

    try again later. So I waited a few seconds and clicked again. After 2-3 attempts, I got a message that Exodus has been installed successfully.

  • Tashika Evans

    The exact error reads “file is not a zip file please try again later attempting to continue. Ok in blue, I click ok and it pops up again, I wait a few seconds and click ok and it gives me the message that the installation is complete.

  • joanne

    this may sound like a stupid question, but when following your guides to downloading addons, how do you know which ones contain the one you want, it I wanted exodus, but you say to download indigo/fusion? Therefore if I want to download Zen TV to my Kodi, how do I do it?

  • Sam

    After I hit begin here there is no zip file what have I done wrong?

    • brian oswald

      Mine is doing the same thing on a new one that i just installed. no zip file pops up for indigo…PLEASE HELP

      • See note in bold red font above the tutorial. TV Addons is not working anymore. Use my Supercharge Guide.

  • Elena Williams

    I’m downloading exodus, i go step by step but where it till me to zip the file of fusion nothing is there after begin-here. what should I do? what am I missing?

    • Sally Rosminkos

      Mine either. I have spent 3 hours on this an nothing is installed

    • Please see my note at the top of the page in bold red font. This does not work anymore and I am currently not able to update this tutorial until I am back from a trip. Get my free Supercharge Guide with link in same spot above and I go through a new process that will get you all of the best addons.

  • Jim Casy

    So, are you essentially saying that for the time being, that your recommended way to be able to get Exodus is by downloading somebody’s “build”? I really like the plain jane Kodi look. I put one of the builds listed on your super charge videos onto my kids Amazon box….whatever the “lite” one is called….don’t really love it, but Exodus does work on it plus, having installed TerrariumTV via your DYI helps the anxiety. I’m starting to like it almost as much as Exodus.

    Please find us a good Exodus host, Troy! Thanks for your hard work.

    • Hello Jim, absolutely. Once I get back from my trip, I will re-write this article which will show the best way to install Exodus without a build. Thanks for comment.

  • Scott Bosiger

    Anyone having trouble getting NBC sports working?? I am trying to watch the golf channel and it keeps saying I have to have a subscription. With the US open coming up, I was hoping to get this working!!

  • Donna Burton

    Anyone have the email yet to install exodus onto 17.3… im loosing the will to live without tv and movies on my stick x

    • Donna, if you tried the signup form above and didn’t receive anything, it means you have already subscribed in the past. Please email me and I will send it to you.


    So I’m trying in install exodus on kodi 17.3 went to file manager typed what’s needed named it fusion backed out went to add ons clicked install from zip file clicked fusion and then the next page is blank. It doesn’t give option to click kodi repos. I’ve done everything correct. Why is this happening?

    • Leroy McAfee

      I’m in the same boat. Have you gotten an answer yet?

      • Victor Santana

        Look at the above response. For dustin question.

        I am playing with builds at the moment to install on some fire sticks

    • Victor Santana

      It has been removed due to the lawsuits against the live streams

      You need to use ares which you can look up.

      Spinz is not working either.

      Its starting to look like you will need to use a vpn to start these application that are being blocked.

  • Leroy McAfee

    I’m unable to get the fusion because it’s reading that it unable to retrieve directory information. I’ve done everything right and it’s not working. My WiFi is very strong. Please advise. Thanks Leroy

  • Brian Chavez

    Troypoint, I can’t get the spins .zip to appear so I can download it. Also, I’ve downloaded Terrarium TV, I really love it, but it studders and buffers awful. What can I do to fix this. Is it my Firestick? 1st gen model. I’m running about 100gig speed internet and all my other sources play fine, Netflix, YouTube and exodus when it was working.
    Thanks for the help,

  • Tutorial above has been updated since the shutdown of TV Addons and Indigo Tool. This now works by using the Kodisrael Repo instead. See tutorial above.

    • Ann Lovell

      did not work for me..:(

      • Hi Ann, can you please share some additional info on what happened and any errors that you got when installing Exodus on Kodi? Double check that you are typing in proper url for the source.

    • Max PackerBacker Magee

      Hi Troy, I tried the updated (kdil) tutorial, but got an error when Exodus was being installed- “Failed to install a Dependency” No luck.

      In the logs (settings->Event log), I see Exodus Metadata Installation failed is the cause.

      Edit: Oh shit. On a whim, I tried installing Exodus Metadata from the failure log entry, and it installed! Then I retried Exodus itself and it worked! I guess that’s a tweak if others are having issues.

      • Thanks for update Max! Glad you shared that info about Exodus.

  • Steve Thatcher

    Not Great a big lack of streams available

    • Hi Steve, what are you trying to pull up? All of the new stuff is available in this latest update from what I can see with many streams. Thanks for comment.

      • Steve Thatcher

        Troy thanks for the reply apologies I was a little to eager all sorted thank you ?

  • Cee Gambino-Padilla

    Thank you this helped a lot. I bought a firestick in Feb And I found a video to jailbreak It. It worked well for a few months and then got slow and I wasn’t finding shows and I reset my firestick to factory settings. It worked again for a while and the same thing happened. So I found your link and used it and Exodus is working well.

    Is there a reason why it will start to mess up every few months where I need to factory reset my firestick?
    Is there a way to just delete the Kodi app and not the factory reset my Firestick?

    Thank you again.

  • Mitchell Leo Adams

    Running into an issue. After inputting the URL, I get a message “unable to connect”. Unknown sources is checked, I checked and re-checked the URL to make sure I was putting it in correctly, and everything is as shown. It gives to option to “install anyway” which I tried, however when going to “install from .zip file”, I clicked on the source but, the OK button won’t highlight, and I can’t go any further. Any ideas, or possible work arounds? Attached a screenshot below

    • Mitchell, try restarting both your device and router. This is working. Also, I know that you said you checked the url but this is the box that you will always get when typing it in wrong. Here is the url –

  • Chris Groves

    • David Tartaglia

      Same issue here…

    • David Tartaglia

      Just figured it out. Uninstall all your old repositories first, then try again. Worked perfectly after that

      • E Panning

        Yes Sir, did that yesterday.

      • Thanks for sharing this tip, David. Will add it to the instructions above!

  • E Panning

    I went back and deleted any repositories that didn’t work – tried alot of them over the last week. Also deleted anything Exodus that was already on my Kodi – there was a non working respository present. Then I reinstalled using your instructions. After a week of struggling I finally have Exodus back. Thank you Troy!

    • You are welcome! Glad you got Exodus working again. Have fun.

  • Roxanne Beaumont

    My kodi looks nothing like this. Help please.

  • Cody Hummel

    Exodus is not on the list after I install the repo. Might be taken down from that site too.

    Failed to install a dependency… Help please!

  • Erick

    Will this same repository install of Exodus work on KODI running on Windows or will it only work on the Fire Sticks and Fire TVs? I tried it but I’m getting an invalid structure error.

    • Will work on both, Erick. Their servers are getting hit hard at the moment. Keep trying.

  • Cathy Whitehead Rivera

    Installed the smash repository can’t connect to exodus.. I just installed 17.3 so nothing else on it… Keeps saying it failed.. Please help

    • Keeley Fenn

    • Keep trying. There server is getting hit hard. I just tried and it took me three attempts but it finally installed.

      • Ron Davis

        Hi Troy,
        I am getting the same problem as Keeley, when I try to Install Exodus from the Video Add On page, I get three (3) messages one after the other after hitting ‘Install’.;
        MYSQL/PYTHON – Installation Failed
        METHANDLER – Failed to install a Dependency
        EXODOS – Failed to install a Dependency
        I appreciate that your reply to Keeley was 3 days ago and I have been trying for over 4 hours today.
        Am I doing something wrong?.
        Thanks in advance for any pointers / help you can give me. Ron (UK)

  • Kayneth El-Melloi Archibald

    I can get up to step 18, but then am unable to connect to the repository. Has the server gone down? Thanks.

    • Their server may be getting slammed. Try again a little later.

      • Kayneth El-Melloi Archibald

        Just installed Specto instead, so we’re good.

  • kate

    I can’t get the repository to install I click the “smash repository” in “install from repository” and get this message: “could not connect to repository”

    • Hi Kate, this is usually due to inputting wrong url in source box. Make sure it is exactly

    • Kate, also, it appears that their server is getting hit hard. Try back later.

    • Keith

      I am now getting same message- were you able to connect?

  • Loretha Dantzler

    Hi Troy I installed VPN I wasn’t able to download anything so I turned it off and it still says not connected to the network. I checked to see if I was connected, I am connected but still can’t download anything. I even went as far as factory reset. Only able Kodi but no other add on. Any suggestions

    • Try restarting both your device and router.

  • Keith

    Hi I continue to get error message failed to install from zip file. Any suggestions

  • Rob

    Troy, I tried this with Jarvis 16.1 and it installed perfectly, or so I thought. I went to “Movies” and then to “Years” and picked “2017”. In the lower light hand corner, there was the little circle the word “Working” just like always, but after maybe 30 seconds or so, it disappeared without a “No Stream Available” or any error or anything. Do you have any idea what’s wrong

  • Tommy

    hey Troy, when i select install for exodus, it just goes back to the video add on screen. I wait but it doesnt seem to install….any ideas?

  • Debbie Cruz

    Hi mine says
    If can’t install it’s cause of dns

  • Hello Everyone. For those of you having problems, I have changed my tutorial back to a different repo that is currently working. Smash Repo is down due to server overload. Above instructions should now work for Exodus with Kdil Repo.

    • Laurie Ray

      I still get a message stating that it could not retrieve directory information. What is the url for the Kdil repo?

    • Liana Parsons

      Still not working for me. Would love the Kdil repo link.

    • Lynsie Calderwood

      What the is the kdil repo source?

  • Adrea Johns

    Somehow this tutorial changed to smash… wasn’t it different? How do access the other kdil?

  • Rugi

    Excellent instructions. Install was successful. I am experiencing a minor glitch though; under TV Shows > New Episodes. Click on New Episodes, system seems to be buffering, but then the page never loads. Any tips?

    I have been using Exodus for years, never had any issues and I run it on multiple devices. Within the last week, I have run into an issue on my computer that I can not seem to find a cure for. Every time I open Exodus and click on a link to play, I get the buffering wheel and then sound will start for the link, but no video will pop up. I then proceed to click on the tab to expand the video screen and the sound cuts off and I move my mouse cursor and the outline of the mouse doesn’t go away, there usually end up being 100s of mouse icons from me frantically moving my mouse around. Then I hit the backspace button and it returns me back to the screen to choose a stream. Any thoughts on this issue? Anyone else have this problem or have had it in the past? Thanks.

    • James Androusky

      You may need to re-install Exodus. I had the same issue with mine. I just updated to kodi 17.3 and followed these instructions above and everything works just fine. I think it has something to do with the new kodi updates and the previous streams available are coded slightly differently. I read on it but I’m no expert (lol) so I am just trying to give you some type of explanation. I hope this helps your problem.

      • Mike

        I have reinstalled Exodus numerous times, I am running 17.3 Krypton and have used a few different versions of exodus that I can find and none of them work. I even reinstalled Kodi itself. Im pretty sure its a playback error, not a problem with the links. Im just not 100% sure and don’t really know how to go about fixing it.

  • AtlAllDay

    I’m running android version 4.4.2 How can I install or upgrade my version

    • You need to find firmware upgrade by doing a google search for your specific Android TV Box.

  • Eric Paull

    I keep getting the message cannot connect to server. Doesn’t matter what link I use. Im not sure what I’m doing wrong?

    • Double check that you typed in proper url Step #7.

  • Will Hutton

    Wow. . . I must be lucky. Just installed 17.3 on my new laptop and worked first time! Thanks Troy.
    Also been running Jarvis on my old laptop and Exodus has been faultless even on the old fusion repo. Only noticed there was a problem by reading the news banner at the bottom of the screen. Just checked again and everything is still hunky dory!

    • Thanks for comment, Will. Have fun with Exodus and Kodi.

  • Jim foss

    I seem to be getting the following error “the dependencey on script.module.common version 2.0.0 could not be satisfied. Any ideas? I did a fresh kodi install today and do not have any existing exodus repositories. Any help would be great, thanks

    • Jim, try going through the process again.

  • Kimberly Schull

    I’ve added exodus using the tutorial just fine, but when I open exodus and and try to select a show, it takes 10 minutes to load each step (show, season, episode, links) but when I finally get the show open nit runs just fine. Why is it taking so long to load all the options, do you know how to fix this issue? I am on a brand new fire tv and just installed kodi and exodus today.

    • Hi Kimberly. Try restarting both device and your router.

  • Karen Gregory

    I have just downloaded Kodi and Exodus, but so far have only been able to watch 1 movie!!!! I’ve chosen several only to get a message saying stream not available???? I’m extremely underwhelmed so far ?

    • Hi Karen, try restarting both your device and router. Everything working fine on my end with Exodus and Kodi.

  • Papaboulay Mangoya

    thanks everything work great

    • Glad you got Exodus installed on Kodi, Papaboulay. Have fun.

  • Angel Lobato

    Amazing thank you so much

  • Shannon McFall

    Everything seemed to install properly, but when I search in exodus, no results ever come up.

  • Ashley Simpson

    For some reason everything I watch on Exodus is buffering. Ive restarted my router and my fire stick and nothing helps. Any ideas?

  • Shaun McHugsalot

    HelloHello… failed to install from zip file is the error i got. I had already gone and deleted the existing exodus repository earlier. Not sure what to do now?? Can anyone help please

    • Ken

      Same result

    • Chris Whitley

      I did the same thing

  • Navocar

    I could not locate the “smash” zip file when trying to install it as an add-on. What am I doing wrong?

    • Double check that you are typing in proper url.

      • Chris Whitley

        Have keyed URL in several times and it still tell me cannot connect to the network

  • ????? ??????

    Thank you sooo much. I had the previous version of Exodus wich was broken. You saved me!

    • Glad it worked for you! Have fun with Exodus and Kodi.

  • Rod Kesselring

    ok here is a strange one. installed from your tutorial (thank you btw) and when I look at my progress via trakt I get a strange show coming up Kustbevkarna. It does not show up in trakt website or on other add ons that use trakt ???? any ideas?

    • Rod Kesselring

      nevermind I just opened it up then it showed on my trakt and then I removed it 🙂

  • Haley Ann

    I entered the URL and everytime I entered ok, it said couldn’t connect to network. I pressed on the name 5 more times and still didn’t work. I went to add ons and went to install from zip file. I pressed the name of the file and the blue loading circle pops up and then goes away and nothing happens. This is the 3rd fucking file I downloaded from Youtube and google and its not working. I really need your help.

  • sherri

    For step #3 if I have an older version. How do I find how to allow installation from unknown sources?

  • Ashley Peña

    When I go to add the zip file it pops up with three different options

  • Hello Everyone, it appears that the Smash repo is currently down so if you are experiencing problems, try back later. Thank you.

  • Mazz Man

    Once Smash is back up, I want to update my Exodus as well, but I have to know, will my “Favorites” be erased as well when I delete the old version of Exodus? I’m on a Firestick and just updated Kodi to 17.3, if that helps.

  • I just re-wrote the tutorial above this morning and this is now a working method.

    • re2020

      I was hopeful but clicked on Install from zip clicked on SC gears turn then nothing.

  • Mark Ciccarelli

    I install Ares but I wanted to get back to my Kodi home page to stop the buffering,I have the new Areos page and heeded to get to MY add on (KODI) page any suggestions.

  • savanna biesen

    Any suggestion for audio books

  • Megan

    I can’t get to the repository step I click on Caz and there is nothing there what am I doing wrongoing?

    • Double check that you are typing proper url into source box.

  • Danny Mack

    i click on Exodus and it just says “downloading 0%”…and frozen. Any suggestions? (I have the settings set to accept unknown sources)

    • Amit Mendler

      I had the same problem, just press download again and it should be fine.

  • Shaun McHugsalot

    After typing in the url and then naming it, then ok.. i get an error that says ” unable to connect to directory do you want to add it anyway” .. still stuck and still not sure what to do !!! ?

    • Shaun, this is usually because the url was typed in wrong. Double check your url. I just tested and working fine. If url is correct, try restarting both your Kodi device and router and then try again.

  • Julio McFarquhar

    I thought Caz shut down his repo a couple days ago, if I’m not mistaken.

    • No, working fine. Just tested it.

      • Julio McFarquhar

        Thanks for confirming Troy!

        • Brandon Keith

          It’s not working

          • Hi Brandon, what error are you receiving? I just went through process again and it installs fine.

  • disqus_nx4MfF4kvy

    Not working as of July 13, it installs but doesn’t bring up anything and I’m using a Debrid .

    • Working fine on my devices with Real-Debrid. I suggest trying to re-authorize your Debrid account.

      • disqus_nx4MfF4kvy

        I did re authorize, I’m thinking my VPN might have something to do with it.

        • Maybe try connecting to VPN and then re-authorize after that. Might have problems if you authorize first and then connect to VPN. Not sure.

          • disqus_nx4MfF4kvy

            I’m working at this moment without a VPN, I’m not going to actually watch anything they didn’t like my Bitcoin wallet or something so I’m waiting for god knows what Exodus is listing movies Eventually it’s very slow, never saw it so slow.

          • disqus_nx4MfF4kvy

            It was my VPN, it’s up. Seems like it’s being blocked by my IP Comcast .

    • Roc

      Yep Im having the same exact problem and I re-authorized my Debrid account. You search for the movie/show and it comes up like normal and lists the links and when you click on any of them it just goes through the list and says no stream available

      • disqus_nx4MfF4kvy

        My problem was that my VPN account had expired and I wasn’t aware of it, now I’m using a server in Canada and it’s all good.

  • Johnny Hohenstein

    Once I get to download from .zip file I get a message on top right of screen that says “failed to install addon from .zip file”

    • Paige Turbeville

      I get the same one

  • Thomas Maher

    I got the stuff installed but cannot find it in app 🙁

  • Thomas Maher

    Why exidus show only right three options like update disable updates or disable and now want to open?

  • Thomas Maher

    now i getting error saying failed to install deproity or whateve rit called

  • Gaby

    I had a friend update Kodi for me, 17.3 Krypton version. At first, the screen was regular and normal (I was able to see all add-ons). After turning off the tv, then turning it back on, it has gone to a new screen that shows several categories on a sidebar (Movies, TV Shows, Music, etc) and it says “Your library is currently empty….add a media source….etc. How do I get this back to the normal screen?

    • Deborah Jackson

      Try going to video add on and see if your stuff is there

  • Roc

    The problem that I am having is this. I open Exodus, Covenant, or Elysium and I get the same exact error. It will allow me to search for the movie or show and when clicking on the episode that I want to watch it takes me to the list of streams but when clicking on any of the streams it just goes right down the list of all of them and then gives me an error that no streams are available. I have changed vpn servers, uninstalled and reinstalled my addons, re authorized real debrid, and I’ve cleared my cache. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Karen Tarran

    Quick question what does it mean if it says failed to install dependency

  • When I click Exodus at the end it just opens, it doesnt allow me to install.

  • I Breathe Poetry

    Hi Troy… when it comes to most things techy, Im a novice! Thank you so much for these step by step instructions!

  • Gina Knop

    been working on getting this exodus downloaded for 2 days now and nothing, nothing is working, i keep watching everyone’s videos, following what they say to do and still nothing, im so frustrated with this, i should have just bought one that had everything on it already

    • Gina, Exodus no longer being updated or maintained. Use this link for a new addon that the Exodus team has released which I just uploaded the tutorial –

      • Gina Knop

        thank you, i will try it

      • Gina Knop

        worked like a charm, thank you so much

  • Bishop

    Hey Troy! I tried to install exodus and got to the point where you go to zip file and click the kodistuff and nothing happens? Any suggestions?

    • Make sure that you are typing in source accurately. That is usually problem for failed install.

  • Jo Couture

    Thank you, if you ever need a kidney…ask xxx

    • You are welcome, Jo. Have fun with Exodus on Kodi.

  • John Worley

    Thank you my friend for all your time and effort.

    • Thanks for comment, John.

  • Whitney Denae

    Thank You

  • Nim Iwe

    Thank god, it’s working on Kodi 14, Helix

  • Kel

    Downloaded smash. Followed all your instructions for version 14.2 but exodus still didn’t show up 🙁

    • Andreea Moise

      It worked for me. Just type a backspace before http.

  • Kel

    Just found out Exodus is no longer running and has been replaced by a new add on called Convenant. I’ve downloaded this and works perfectly

  • Andreea Moise

    After typing smash repo, it still doesn’t work. > “Couldn’t retrive directory information. This could be due to the network not being connected. Would you like to add it anyway?” Please, help.

  • Dean Farnham-Trezise

    Doesn’t work for me, I load the covenant addon select year (for example) then click and year 2016, it looks like its about to load the next menu but does nothing?

  • Mike

    I attempted to download exodus but it is not under the add on list during the last step

    • Viktoria Makievsky

      Same thing happened to me

      • Dirt Bird

        It disappeared on Wednesday night from SMASH REPO. I was lucky enough to sneak it in on one BOX. Now it doesn’t show up anymore.

    • Dirt Bird

      It seemed to disappear on Wednesday night from SMASH REPO. I was lucky enough to sneak it in on one BOX. Now it doesn’t show up anymore .

  • Dirt Bird

    Exodus is now dead and no longer supported. It is now called Covenant – which can be found on the Colossal Repo. Its like when Genesis died and became Exodus. Exodus died and is now Covenant.

  • S Scope

    Is there a supercharge version for laptop install

    • You can use either the Fire TV or Android Box and refer to Video #2 as that works with all Kodi devices including computers.

  • Trip

    I’ve received the confirmation email for the supercharged guide and selected Fire and have yet to receive a follow up email with guide. I’ve checked every folder in my email. Is there another way that I can get my hands on it?

    • Hello, this means you are probably already subscribed. Please send me an email to with SUPERCHARGE GUIDE in subject line.
