xbmckodi-evolvelogoGoliath Repository

The Goliath Repository for Kodi has suffered with all the recent events that have effected developers and their builds in both the UK and the USA. I’m sure Goliath will be back stronger than ever once the dust settles. In the meantime, here’s a quick tutorial on how ti install this Repository.

Step 1:

From the home screen navigate to;

  • System (icon top left corner)

xbmckodi-krypton-settings button home screen

Step 2:

This is your System menu window with a much different look from previous xbmc/kodi versions. From the 11 menu items to choose from, locate and select the folder that says

  • File Manager

xbmckodi-kryptonv17-system-filemanager

Step 3:

On the Right Panel scroll down and select the menu item that says;

  • Add source

xbmckodi-kryptonv17-file manager add source

Step 4:

Insert the following path exactly as it’s written in the field provided;

  • http://matsbuilds.uk/goliath
  • Click ok

Step 5:

Name this Repo;

  • .goliath
  • select ok

Step 6:

If you haven’t completed the next step, already, we now need to enable downloading from an unknown source (if you have, skip ahead to Step 13: ). Go back to your home screen once again and select the System icon at the top of your screen

Step 7:

From the icon menu, select;

  • System settings

xbmckodi-kryptonv17-System-System settings

Step 8:

From the menu on the left, scroll down and select the Add-ons menu item

Step 9:

The add-ons Unknown sources is disabled by default. We want to turn it on. You can do this by selecting the Unknown sources field.

Step 10:

Once the Unknown Sources is enabled, a pop up window will open warning you of the hazards of 3rd part add-ons

Note: The developers of Kodi are posting this warning here as they do not endorse or support any 3rd party add-ons themselves. Kodi is an open source media player and anyone with the know how can post information/media sources to it. All the source links used by 3rd part add-ons are available online. The developers of these 3rd party add-ons are just pointing the media to this shared source link. I myself have never had any issues with malware or cyber attacks via kodi. I always recommend using a VPN for your internet security and do your best to research any 3rd party add-ons you wish to install. At least I do. I visit multiple forums to see what other users are saying about the add-on before I recommend it to anyone using my site. I hope this helps! Now select Yes if you wish to continue and let’s move on

Step 11:

Navigate back to your home screen and select;

  • Add-ons

xbmckodi-kryptonv17-add-ons

Step 12:

Select the box icon @ the top left of your screen
xbmckodi-kryptonv17-addons-install from zip icon

Step 13:

Select

  • Install From Zip File

xbmckodi-kryptonv17-addons browser-install from zip file

Step 13:

From the list, select .goliath

Step 10:

select the file that says;

  • repository.Goliath-x.x.zip

If you were successful with installing this Repository, you will get an Add-On Enabled icon the top right corner of your screen. Be patient as this may take a few minutes.

Step 11:

Now, select;

  • Install from repository

xbmckodi-kryptonv17-addons browser-Install from repository

Step 12:

Scroll down and select

  • Goliaths Add-ons repository

Step 13:

Select

  • Video add-ons

Step 14:

Of the current video add-ons available, I might suggest;

  • Picasso
  • f4mTester
  • News 12: free

An install browser window will open. Select the install icon to the bottom right corner of your screen. This may take several seconds to initiate. Please be patient and if successful, you will receive an install/enabled message in the top right hand corner of your screen

Step 15:

Now, head back to your add-on browser window and select

  • Video add-ons

xbmckodi-kryptonv17-addons-videoaddons screen

Scroll down and select the icon for the video add-ons you installed in the previous step. That’s  all there is to it! I hope this was helpful. All the best!
