Our Quick Setup file makes everything easy!

There are many ways to get updates to your devices when they are released.

We have created our Quick setup file.

It will help those people that need to:

Update the superbuild.

Update kodi.

Install kodi if it has been removed or deleted.

Install kodi if factory resetting device.

You must have a subscription to our server to get access to the quick setup file.
