Oftentimes, problems arise within Kodi because of a specific Kodi Addon you are using within this software.

As time goes on, you may notice that Kodi stops performing as it did when you first installed it.

Uninstalling a Kodi addon or addons is a great way to update Kodi and get it performing at its highest ability. Resetting Kodi also gets the job done.

If you use a Kodi Build, you may have ten or twenty add-ons that you never use.

Build developers are notorious for including addons that don’t function properly anymore or don’t provide any value.

After installing a build, it is usually a good idea to delete or uninstall Kodi addons that are unneeded for your uses.

You may find yourself in a situation where you must uninstall and then reinstall the same Kodi addon because it isn’t updating properly.

Most Kodi users prefer to run the software on streaming devices such as the Amazon Firestick.

Unfortunately, many of these come with limited storage so it is important to keep Kodi as clean as possible.
