  1. got to step 9, kept asking to download it it, which I did then was unable to install it. After donating $5. That was the last page I was on before going back to home, in hopes the Kodi icon wa somewhere which it was not.

    1. Download issue may be due to country restriction, server issues etc. Maybe that URL is restricted in our country. Tr changing the IP using any free VPN tools. If that works, go for a paid one. Also, try the download, not at peak time. Definitely, it will work.

  2. Everything working fine until I got to Kodi No Limits under Install from zip file & nothing happens. I can not get plugin videos as shown on this page. I live in Orange County CA & my neighbor has it & my firestick is identical to hers. What can I do?

    1. Hi Herman, Thank you for your valuable feedback. We have a video tutorial for you. Please see that one and check what did you missed. Hope this will help you. I rechecked everything in this article and every links are working fine. Sometimes the download took a few minutes based on its server speed. Try one or two times and check it.

  3. It worked…I hadnt added a media name so I went back & added the name no limits kodi.
    But now I am at the builds. Do I have to do all of them? Which one offers the movies in theaters?

  4. I downloaded some builds & force closed it by unplugging. When I reopened my firestick I do not have the Kodi app
