Raspberry Pi Zero Kodi Kit: Cheapest Kodi Player.. Ever?
Raspberry Pi Zero is a mini-PC that costs $5 (for the non-WiFi/Bluetooth model) or $10 for the Wireless version (Raspberry Pi Zero W).
Shipping is typically around $10 (from a well-known RPi seller like Canakit.com. Expect to pay around $20 for accessories needed to hook up RPi 0, such as HDMI cable, mini HDMI to HDMI adapter, and Micro SD card (we recommend 4GB or more for Kodi).
This brings the total cost down to around $50 USD, which is close to FireStick, but not cheaper.
Raspberry Pi zero is more “hackable” than FireStick. So if you’re the hacker type then get the Raspberry Pi zero and put Kodi on it + Zero Tolerance build.
Either way, you can install Zero Tolerance build on Raspberry Pi Zero or Amazon FireStick using these steps:
Raspberry Pi Zero Tolerance Build Install
- Launch Kodi
- Go to SYSTEM. This is the Gear icon in Kodi 17 Krypton, which is in the top left corner.
- Then select System Settings.
- Now choose “Add-Ons” from the menu on the left.
- Then turn ON the “Unknown Sources” toggle button.
- Then press “Yes“.
- Go back one level by pressing Esc on your keyboard (or press “back” on Fire TV Remote, for FireStick users)
- Then select File Manager.
- Now choose “Add Source“.
- Select “None” and enter the path http://kryptikz.com/repo/teamzt
- Then select OK.
- Now choose the box that says “Enter a name for this media source”. Enter a name such as “kfiretv zero” and press OK.
- Then select OK once more to finish adding the new Kodi source.
- Now go back to the Kodi homescreen.
- Then select “Add-Ons“.
- Now press the Package icon in the top left corner (this is the Kodi 17.1 Package Installer).
- Then select “Install From Zip File”
- Now choose the new source you added, “kfiretv zero”.
- Then select the file plugin.program.ztwizard-1.0.1.zip
- Wait for the ZT Wizard to install (aka “Zero Tolerance Wizard”). Kodi will display “Team ZT Add-on Enabled” in the top right corner once the Team ZT Wizard is done installing.
- The Team ZT Wizard screen should appear automatically. If it doesn’t, launch it manually by going to the Kodi home screen, then select Program Add-Ons, then select Team ZT Wizard.
- After the Team ZT Wizard is open, Select “Dismiss” or “Remind Me Later”
- Now press Continue to accept the default values.
- Then select Build Menu or “Team ZT Builds”, then “Team ZT Lite Edition Krypton”
- Now choose “Krypton Builds”. Then select “Krypton Builds” once more, then select the “17.1 Krypton” Zero Tolerance Build menu item to install on your device.
