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
  • Hover over Add-ons menu item and turn on Unknown sources if not already on – you will receive a confirmation message where you must click Yes
  • Click back on remote to go back to System page

  • Type the following url exactly how it is listed here – and click OK

  • 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 for Smash Repo enabled message to appear
  • Click Install from repository
  • Click -SMASH Repo
  • Click Video Add-ons
  • Click Exodus
  • Click Install
  • 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.

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

    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.

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

  28. Roc July 14, 2017 at 2:15 pm - Reply

    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.

    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?

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

      • disqus_nx4MfF4kvy July 13, 2017 at 3:58 pm - Reply

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

        • Troy July 13, 2017 at 4:11 pm - Reply

          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 July 13, 2017 at 4:15 pm

            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 July 13, 2017 at 4:20 pm

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

    • Roc July 14, 2017 at 8:06 am - Reply

      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 July 14, 2017 at 8:22 am - Reply

        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.

      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.
