With the newly-released Kodi 17.0 Krypton, we bring you this new Kodi 17 Builds guide (click HERE for the YouTube video tutorial version). Install the best Kodi 17 Builds using this step-by-step tutorial. See how to install Kodi 17 Config Wizard with the steps immediately below.
Or install a heavier build like Kodi 17 Beast (scroll down), which is like Kodi 16 Beast build. Either way, you should check out Kodi Indigo, which is the new version of the XBMC Hub Wizard; this is covered in the steps below:
How to Install Kodi 17 Builds:
Installing Kodi 17 Builds is very similar to installing Kodi 16 Builds. But since the Kodi 17 Skin is different from Kodi 16 Jarvis skin, you should know a few things going in to it, such as:
- The “Settings” menu is now a “gear” icon at the top left of the Kodi home screen.
- File Manager is still underneath the Settings menu (now the gear icon).
- Kodi 17 now warns you when you install TV Addons from an unknown source
- The “old” http://fusion.tvaddons.ag source is still there – but now says “begin-here” instead of “start-here”, and has “Indigo” now instead of “hubwizard”.
How to Install Kodi 17 Build: Config Wizard via “Indigo”
- From the Kodi 17 homescreen, go to Settings (which is now the “gear” icon)
- Then go to File Manager
- Now go to Add Source
- Select “<NONE>” and enter http://fusion.tvaddons.ag
- Then select OK
- Now select “Enter a name for the media source”
- Enter “kodi indigo” or any other name you’d like
- Select OK
- Then press Back on your remote (or press Esc on a PC keyboard) to return to the Kodi Krypton menu
- From the Kodi Krypton homescreen, go to Add-Ons
- Then go to Program Add-Ons
- Select Install From Zip File
- Then choose the new source you added, “kodi indigo”
- Now select “begin-here”
- Then choose “plugin.program.indigo-1.0.4.zip” (the version number may be slightly different)
- Wait a minute or so for Indigo to install. Indigo is the new name for the Fusion installer by the TVAddons team ;)
- After the “Indigo Wizard” addon-enabled notification appears, return to the Kodi 17 homescreen.
- Then go to Add-Ons
- Now select Program Add-Ons
- Then choose Indigo
- After Indigo Wizard launches, choose Config Wizard.
- Then select “Yes” or “Install” to install Kodi 17 Config Wizard
- After the Kodi 17 Config Wizard installer is done, exit out of Kodi (if it doesn’t exit itself). Then re-launch Kodi.
- When Kodi re-launches, let it update itself
- Then go to Add-Ons
- Now select a TVAddon such as cCloud TV
- Then choose a sub-menu, such as “Top 5“
- In the TV Addon’s sub-menu, choose a Streaming Video item, such as “Comedy Central“
- Then wait for the TV Addon to connect to the Source and start playing the stream.

If the first source you try doesn’t work, try a different source or try a different TV Addon, such as Exodus!
