  1. While in the Add-ons menu, click on Install from repository.
  2. Go ahead and open the XANAX Repository and click on Program Add-ons. Choose XANAX Wizard.
  3. Click the option to install XANAX Wizard.

Now see how to install the build on Kodi Leia or Krypton using this wizard installer add-on.

If you chose to install the build later and quit the wizard after installing it, you can get back to the Build Menu in the XANAX Wizard by starting on the Kodi home screen and going to Add-ons > Program Add-ons > XANAX Wizard > Build Menu.

  1. Next, choose any server from the list of active servers.
  2. Choose Fresh or Standard Install. A fresh install will restore Kodi Leia to its default configuration. The “Fresh” option is often the best way to proceed when installing a new build. Just be aware everything you installed to Kodi prior will be deleted.
  3. Next, click Continue.
  4. Wait for the build to download and install.
  5. Choose to Force Close Kodi. If it doesn’t reboot automatically, launch Kodi once more. The Reload Profile option will only crash Kodi.

If using a device that didn’t reboot automatically, like a Windows PC, start Kodi back up manually. Unplug Amazon FireOS devices such as the Firestick and Fire Cube for a few minutes before restarting Kodi.

Beware the Risks Involved with Kodi Streams

Please be aware that some of the free media streams found by Kodi addons are illegal in some regions. Streaming copyrighted content in the form of free movies and TV shows can get you into legal trouble with your ISP, government agencies, and corporate watchdog groups such as the MPAA.

Happening upon streams that are not legally licensed for distribution is nearly inevitable, even when not intended. While difficult to discern whether streams available on Kodi are legally sourced or pirated content, it’s advisable to use a virtual private network. Keep your identity, location, and activities hidden by using a virtual private network whenever you’re accessing free movies, TV series, and live sports on Kodi.

A virtual private network encrypts your activity so your ISP, third-party developers, government agencies, and companies can’t store activity logs or use your data in other nefarious ways. Connecting to Kodi Leia through a secure network server will also remove blocks on geo-restricted content and keep download speeds from being throttled by your ISP.

I strongly advise you to protect yourself with the cost-effective Surfshark VPN app for all these reasons and more. Follow these simple steps to gain full access to the internet, free from prying eyes. Try Surfshark VPN without risk or worry using their 30-day money-back guarantee.

How to Protect Yourself with Surfshark VPN

  1. Subscribe to Surfshark VPN risk-free to get the top streaming virtual private network service available for only $2.49 per month.
  2. Download and install the free Surfshark VPN app for your streaming device or router.
  3. Open the Surfshark VPN app and log in with the user and password created in Step 1.
  4. Connect to a fast, secure server to see all available streams.

Once connected and encrypted, you are protected online when browsing or streaming with Kodi Leia or Krypton. Stream Kodi addons content free of risk or worry.

Kodi XANAX Build Not Working?

If the build stops working, I recommend you first force-quit Kodi and reboot your streaming device.

Another thing to consider is that ISPs often block streams from third-party addons and apps. In particular, Kodi addons that use BitTorrent technology are blocked because this form of streaming is typically used for piracy. Though many torrent streams are within the public domain and not restricted by copyright laws, Internet providers and government watchdogs consider your loss of access acceptable. Corporate interests come first.

So, after you reboot Kodi, make sure to turn your virtual private network on. If that doesn’t get things working again, part of the build or Kodi Leia itself may be corrupted. At this point, it will help to install Kodi fresh, then install the build again by following the above steps.
