You've decided to try Exodus on your Kodi media center, but because of the shakeup in the add-on's development, there's a decent amount of confusion surrounding the exact procedure to install Exodus. Not to worry. The following procedure is the most direct and reliable way to get the latest 6.0 release of Exodus.

Exodus 6.0 will work on Windows, Mac, and Linux, and it supports both Kodi 17 and 18 releases. As long as you're running a reasonably recent version of Kodi, you won't have a problem. Furthermore, the install process is exactly the same across platforms and Kodi versions. There's no need to adapt or change anything. This guide uses Kodi 18 on Ubuntu 18.04 to document the procedure.

How to Install Exodus on Kodi

If you are using a VPN, make sure it's configured correctly and not leaking. It's also a good idea to enable a VPN kill switch to shut your connection down in the event that you get disconnected from the VPN. The client software from your VPN provider should include one. You can also implement one in your firewall. For Linux systems, that's true of IP tables and its wrappers, like UFW.

If you're not using a VPN, don't go any further; using Exodus without a VPN is an insanely bad idea. Exodus streams pirated content illegally.

The next thing to do is to add the necessary repository to Kodi because you're not going to find Exodus in the official Kodi repository. Instead, you're going to need to add an external repository that contains Exodus, as well as a host of additional plugins.

The first step toward installing your new repository is configuring Kodi to accept software from unknown sources. Nothing about this process is officially supported, signed, or verified.

  1. Open Kodi. Select the small gear icon to open up the settings menu. Then, select System.

    Kodi System Settings
  2. Under the system settings, find the add-ons tab. Under that tab, toggle Unknown sources on.

    Enable Unknown Sources Kodi
  3. Now it's time to add the File Source.

Add the File Source

  1. Return to the main settings menu. This time, select File manager.

  2. On the next screen, find and select Add source.

  3. A new window will pop open. In the main body of the window, marked Enter paths or browse, select the entry listed as <None>. The window will shift to allow you to enter an address or file path. Enter "" in the provided space and select OK.

    Select Kodi Bae Repository
  3. Under Kodi Bae, find and select Video add-ons.

  5. Launch Exodus. Return to the main menu. Visit the Add-ons tab, then select the Video add-ons category. Exodus will be listed there along with any other video add-ons you have installed.

    You shouldn't have any trouble watching a nearly endless array of your favorite movies and TV shows with this ridiculously powerful add-on.

    Remember to always connect through a VPN when using Exodus. This version of Exodus was created after the original creator abandoned the project. As a result, it was developed by a group of volunteers, utilizing pieces of the original Exodus and code from other similar add-ons. Watch out for news and developments because the long-term future of Exodus is fairly uncertain.
