KODI 18.3 Out Now. Get the latest SuperBuild

Now is the time to update to KODI 18 if you are still using KODI 17.

The ARCstream Superbuild has been updated with all new Add-ons for the Updated software and is now at Version 9.1 as of June 2019.

Below are the instructions you need to follow to get the latest KODI software PLUS the ARCstream Superbuild setup. We recommend your read each step before proceeding.

You will need to install the KODI Quick setup file v18.3 which is now available to download from the ARCstream APP or you can use the ARCstream Server (membership required). Make sure you have access to either one of these options before proceeding.

If you cannot follow these instructions, we offer a mail-in service. HERE we have a large backup at the moment so wait until Mid July before using this option.

If you have KODI 17.6 version or lower on your device, you MUST uninstall KODI before proceeding

To do so:

For Amazon devices - From the home screen, click settings, now click on Applications, scroll down to Manage installed Apps. Click on KODI, Click on Uninstall, Wait up to 1 minute. It will no longer show up in the list.

For Android devices- Click on Settings, Then Apps, Click on KODI, then click on Uninstall, press OK to confirm. Wait up to 1 minute. It will no longer show up in the list.

At this time I would recommend you power off your device and restart it, however this is not necessary.

Now it is time to install our quick setup file. There are two ways to do this listed below.
