Kodi 17.6 Krypton Setup and New Exodus Covenant Install

Kodi has come a long ways from its early days as XBMC and continues to only get better.

Kodi 17.6 Krypton is the newest version of Kodi to be released and has some major interface changes.

To test it out go to the Kodi download page and download it here. https://kodi.tv/download/

There is installers for most any type of hardware from a Windows PC to a smartphone.

No matter the hardware Kodi is installed to the interface and settings remain the same.

At first the interface looks very different from the old Kodi interface but underneath there is a lot of familiarity.
KODI 17 Krypton Setup and New Exodus Covenant Install Overview
The new default Skin is called Estuary.

Kodi 17.6 Krypton has some big upgrades and improvements over previous versions.

Beside the updated Estuary Skin interface many new features are being added to Kodi Krypton including native support for Amilogic ARM 4K chips, Android de-interlacing to improve live TV streams and much more.






Steps to Setup Unknown Sources in Kodi 17.6 Krypton

Kodi Krypton needs a box checked called Unknown Sources to install add-ons such as Covenant.

Click the Settings Icon in the top left corner

System Settings

Be sure to be in Expert Mode

Add-ons

Turn ON Unknown Sources

A warning box will come up click Yes
kodi-17-krypton-add-ons-unknown-sources-6

To move back with a Windows install right click an empty space on the screen.

After Unknown Sources have been set to ON, repositories and add-ons can be installed.

The steps are similar to older versions of Kodi with a repository URL needed to be setup and than the add-ons installed.

Below is a step-by-step install of Covenant. The same steps can be used to install any add-on by changing the URL to the repository it is in.

Using a good VPN with Kodi is always suggested for privacy and security. If you need a good low cost VPN to use with Kodi Try IPVanish it has multiple high speed servers with no throttling or logs.

    none of that is my issue, my issue is when i add the addon it gives me a error message that says it cant connect to network. Please help me find out whats going on

      Hi, sorry to hear….usually that error means you did not spell the source exactly as shown or that the source is actually no longer good. Unfortunately there is a lot of information out there that should be deleted or have a status on it when its no longer valid; but what doesn’t work for you may work for someone else; or it may work again one day. I have it on my laptop and doest seem to work anymore too. A BIG thanks to the creators of these KODI repositories . Thanks, and Thanks, Again. And maybe: Oops you’ll do it again like Brittany.

    Hi. Apologizing in advance for what I’m sure is a silly question and if it has already been asked/answered.
    When updating and adding all of these new things. Should I delete all of the previous things?

    Thanks 😁

      Why apologize, none of us know what hell we’re doing. My Girl always handles this. You and I can do it. It’s just that we get too impatient. Correct ? Or you just have t figured it out at all ? If not, it’s all good bro. BECAUSE WE SHOULDNT HAVE TO. Repositories, zip files. Notice how they word it as if we use these words everyday ?

      “Umm that’s a touching story. But I asked this question over a month ago. Are you gonna help me or what ? “

      Yup, right now. You said “should I delete everything” but you get nervous thinking you’ll never get it back right ? I was the same way. Delete the entire kodi deal. BOOM !! Do it !! Turn the thing on and get nervous because you just lost everything.

      Fear not bro. Follow the above steps and you have it all current, updated, the whole deal. Once you really get ballsy you go onto YouTube to find stations you cannot access or find. That’s s whole different level of being pissed. Trial and error. Only way I learned. Good look. ( Find-The-Flow)

    I’ve followed multiple guides and each one is having an issue for me. My friend pointed me to this guide, yet I’m still getting an issue at step 11. I’ve allowed unknown sources, tried Kodi in admin and non admin mode… When I get to step 11, and click xvbmc file, I just get a loading circle for a moment and then nothing happens…

    As I go through the steps I reach step #18 and I get a pop-up asking me to select a version and I’m not sure which one to choose. bother are version 999.999.6 but one say super repo and the other says ares project.

    What is the difference between Exodus and Elysium? I have the latest Kodi 17.4 and i am using just the Firestick. Sometimes when i try to load Kodi now, I get the loading circle, but it just spins forever. I have gone to the device in settings and restated 5 times in a row and it will work at that point. But if i put it to sleep for several days, unused, i have to restart device again. What could be causing this issue?
    So basically, Im asking 2 questions. Thank you in advance for your advice.
