Once you are happy with your build locate the Kodi environment directory.

Open the addons folder and delete the folder packages. Also delete any addons or repositories that your build is not using.

Open the userdata folder and delete the folder Thumbnails. Open the addon_data folder and remove any folders of addons that you are not using

It is important to mention here that if you are using the estuary skin you MUST add the addon to your addons folder.




Once you have uploaded your Kodi build zip file to the Kodi Hub get the URL link to it and enter it in to your Lodi panel.

Now it's time to test your build!


  1. Lodi error as soon as you push the start button.
    Check your download URL. Enter the URL in to your browser address bar and see if the build download starts. If it does not then this is your problem. To fix this use the Kodihub
  2. Kodi build doesn't extract fully.
    Check in your zip file for any files with names that have special characters in them. Any you find you need to remove. Usually these always show up in the same place, script.extendedinfo look inside the folder media to find the problems.
  3. After force close the screen still shows the build homescreen with start button or build options.
    This could be down to the same error in point 2 or that you are using the estuary skin, in this case add the estuary skin addon in to your addons folder.
