    • He shouldn’t have done what he did, but no you’re not in trouble. They went back and cleaned the code. I’ll make a video on it.

  1. Do you know how to backup a build on a flash drive or SD card on Kodi 17. I’ve been trying to save my build to add to my boxes in my house and don’t know how. I have 3 boxes and it’s so time consuming trying to place addons on each box!!!! Lol

    • Hi Linda,
      At this point in time there’s no need to upgrade, but with time addons that currently work on 16.1 will no longer work. Simply because newer addons will be coded to work with the latest version of Kodi. Once you see addons breaking on your version of Kodi, or when you can’t install brand new addons, then you know it’s time to upgrade.

  2. your guide is very simple and easy, i was really afraid of losing my addons
    however, i am not bothered with kodi 16 at the moment, so when do you suggest i upgrade kodi?
    thank you

    • Thanks Hussain. You can keep Kodi 16, it’s not a problem just yet. In the future some addons will only work on 17 and above. At that point I’d switch over. There’s no time limit, but as soon as you notice popular addons breaking, or if you can’t install new ones, then it’s time to move onto 17.

  3. Hello, I went to google play to download 17 and was unable to get it from there so I went to my browser to download, after a couple of hours of “downloading”, I turned it off.

    • If you’re using Windows like in this video there’s a file in the user database that you have to delete. The file is named “addons27”. Once you delete that and try to load Kodi 17 it will open. I had the same issue on my Windows 7 PC and deleting that file works. When Kodi 17 opens it will automatically create a new “addons27” file in the database.

    • Isaiah Yhomas load up KODI 16.1 again , this guy should of told you what you needed and also to back yours up to ares wizard , I’m sorry this idiot messed up your KODI

    • If you’re using Windows delete a file named “addons27” in Kodi’s user database. When that file is deleted Kodi 17 will load properly and replace the old “addons27” file. I had the same issued and this resolved it.

    • Isaiah Yhomas I have a question do I have to update kodi or could I just keep the version and if I keep it the only add-on I have is zen so zen would keep updating even if I don’t have the newest version of kodi I have kodi 16.1 version

    • Brian Miller I strongly recommend upgrading to the latest version of Kodi. There are major security flaws in the older versions.

    • It seems like it’s not possible with that device because Kodi 17 requires Android 5.0 or above and I believe that device is running Android 4.4.2

  4. Guys DO NOT TRY THIS UNLESS YOU HAVE ANDROID 5.0 or above this will mess up your KODI , this guy should of informed you . For those ppl not sure what you have it’s lollipop or above hope this helps ppl

  5. does this keep all your backgrounds and build? i made one for over a year, and dont want to lose it, 17.2 is out now and I have fire tv android

  6. hey guys I have a question do I have to update kodi or could I just keep the version and if I keep it the only add-on I have zen so zen would keep updating even if I don’t have the newest version of kodi I have kodi 16.1 version
