This step-by-step tutorial will show you how to uninstall Kodi repositories or repos and sources.
A Kodi repository is a folder which resides on the Internet which hosts add-ons. 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 Kodi repositories and sources for add-ons that have been abandoned by their developer or are no longer work properly. This will cut down on the risk of your device being infected with Malware.
In the screenshot tutorial below, we are uninstalling the MetalKettle Kodi Repository. Earlier this year, the Metalkettle developer left the Kodi scene. An unknown individual has taken over this repo. More than likely, no harm will come, but it is always good spending a few minutes on preventative maintenance.
