How To Uninstall Kodi Repositories on Firestick & Android TV/Google TV

how to uninstall kodi repositories

This step-by-step tutorial will show you how to Uninstall Kodi Repositories or repos.

A Kodi repository is a folder that resides on the Internet which can host installation files that will expand Kodi’s capabilities.

When you install a Kodi repository, you are linking directly to that folder and updates can be automatically installed onto your device.

This means that if a Kodi repository is overtaken by a new developer, it is uncertain what will be published into that folder.

TROYPOINT recommends that you uninstall repositories that have been abandoned by their developer or are no longer working properly.  You should also uninstall repos that you are no longer using.

This will cut down on the risk of your device being infected with viruses/malware. If your system does become infected, you can use a tool like SafeKodi to remove them.

In the screenshot tutorial below, we are uninstalling an outdated Kodi Repository. This developer has left the scene so there is no reason to leave this on our streaming device.

An unknown individual has taken over this repo. More than likely, no harm will come, but it is always good to spend a few minutes on preventative maintenance.

Follow the guide below for uninstalling Kodi repositories. In this example, we are using an Amazon Firestick which is the most popular device due to its low price point and jailbreaking abilities.
