How to Install Exodus on Kodi [Redux and Exodus V8]: Two Kodi Addons for a Limitless Experience

We created this step-by-step guide on installing Exodus Redux and V8 with some helpful advice on safely using these addons for your entertainment. 

There’s a reason why they are still on top in the lists of the best Kodi addons for Firestick, even though they aren’t supported for Kodi Matrix (see our best alternative addons for Kodi below). These addons were launched years ago, but developers updated and upgraded them continuously, giving you the pleasure to easily find and watch your favorite streaming content online.    

Installing Exodus Redux and Exodus Kodi (on Kodi Leia), The Magic Dragon Kodi, and other alternative addons allows you to fully enjoy the Kodi experience. These can be downloaded on your Amazon Fire TV Stick/Fire TV/Fire TV Cube, Android devices, Windows, iOS, Mac, and other platforms. Apart from the overall build quality of these addons, what we appreciate most is the fact that they were kept simple. Quick installation process, intuitive and minimalist interface, and user-friendly functions – what more can you expect?

Features of Exodus Redux Addon

First of all, let us remind you that both Exodus Redux and Exodus Kodi are free. At the moment, Exodus Redux is more consistent because it is the version that gets more updates, and is linked to stronger files where the best media will be streamed from. But both versions of Exodus will be satisfactory since they perform at a solid and fast speed, and have one of the largest media libraries within Kodi’s galaxy.  

That being said, we also want to remind you that the technology behind Kodi and its extensions – and actually behind everything that is tech – is very dynamic. So please keep in mind that the characteristics and existence of certain addons and repositories change all the time.

Exploring and Using Exodus Redux

Exodus Redux might not have the craziest logo or interface, but we love it for its simplicity. Its video library includes folders for Movies, TV Shows, New Movies, New Episodes, and Documentaries. Inside Movies and TV Shows you can find content by year, popularity, episodes, and people, and in most cases you will find various streaming options per video, providing different video qualities. Just explore these folders and select the file that you want to stream!

Troubleshooting

Below you will find some ways to resolve the most common Exodus Redux issues. These recommendations will also help you to resolve problems with most addons.

  • Clear Cache

If the addon is slow or not running streams you might need to clear the cache. Try this:

  1. Open Kodi .
  2. Select the “Add-ons” page.
  3. Go to “Video add-ons”. 
  4. Select “Exodus”. 
  5. Select “Tools”.
  6. Select “Clear Providers” and click “Yes”.
  7. Select “Clear Cache option” and select  “Yes”.
  • Use a VPN

Exodus Kodi is an addon for free streaming, and like every addon it uses links from the web. Many times, the internet providers will try to prevent that. You can use a VPN in order to keep private the information that you are receiving and sending while watching content online, so that the providers or other third-party agencies don’t have access to block your activity.

  • Incorrect Kodi Version

Another common problem is that some addons only work with specific versions of Kodi, while others might have been developed for all the versions – the last two Kodi versions are Laia and Matrix. If you are already using Kodi Laia we recommend you to keep that version because some addons will not work on Kodi’s newest version, and there are not many design differences. For example, as we explained at the beginning of this guide, Exodus V8 and Exodus Redux don’t work on Kodi Matrix. Exodus Redux update button highlighted

  • Update the Addon
    • Click “Add-ons” on the left sidebar menu. Go to “Video Add-ons” and then press the menu button on the remote. Click “Information”.
    • Click “Update” options on the Addon information page.
    • If a new Exodus update becomes available, you can install it from there.

Five Alternative Addons That Work on Kodi Matrix

The Magic Dragon

They say that dragos symbolize perfection, and The Magic Dragon is no exception. This addon is getting more and more famous on the internet world due to its incredible media library that contains TV shows and films. Is one of the fastests and more user friendly addons and streams a lot of new content. The source’s location to install The Magic Dragon is http://diamondbuild.xyz/.

Asgard

Asgard is an all in one Kodi addon, which means that you can use it for multiple types of content. With Asgard you can stream movies, TV Shows, kids, sports, documentaries, music concerts, and more. Besides that we have to say that Asgard’s logo is great, and the design of its interface is very original. Asgard’s source link is http://narcacist.com/repo.

The Oath

The Oath’s  interface is easy to use and some of the premium accounts that this extension features include premium accounts, which gives access to a lot of movies and shows in high video quality. This addon is one of the most popular ones and is compatible with the newest versions of Kodi, like Kodi 19 Matrix and 18 Leia. The Oath’s source link is https://host505.github.io/.

Kodi Add-ons The Oath install button highlighted

Seren

Seren is a Kodi addon created in 2018 that provides films and TV Shows. It is compatible with Kodi 19 and streams high-quality content, old and new. Seren’s popularity is rising because it has many options to navigate its media and is easy to use. You can even filter content by television network, plus it has Autoplay and Up Next options. The only challenge is that after installing Seren you need to open a Real Debrid or Premiumize account, but you can download a zip folder that includes everything in the same package. This means that the installation is done once, and then you need to activate them through the settings. Believe me, the hassle is worth it because you will also need these accounts for many other addons. Plus, it offers a lot of content and outstanding quality at a great speed.

Popcornflix

Popcornflix is also already available inside Kodi’s repository. Search it with Kodi’s search option, install it and stream great movies for free!

Bonus: Crackle

Crackle is a video streaming service owned by Sony Pictures Entertainment that displays films and TV shows. What we love about Crackle is that it is already available inside Kodi’s repository, which means that you don’t need to download any extra files. You will find it inside the addons folder or you can just search it with Kodi’s search option.

FAQs

Are Exodus V8 and Exodus Redux different addons?

Exodus V8 and Exodus Redux are two different addons that have a very similar look. The main difference is that Exodus Redux is newer and, in many cases, it is easier to find better video quality with it. Its interface is similar to its predecessor, Exodus V8, also called Exodus Kodi. At the moment Exodus Redux is pulling up more content, but as we always say with everything tech, apps and extensions are developed and modified minute to minute, so V8 might become the best alternative again.

What can you watch on Exodus V8?

On both Exodus V8 and Exodus Redux you can watch films, TV shows, documentaries, and cartoons in HD quality.

How can I update Exodus V8 on Fire TV?

  • Click “Add-ons” on the left sidebar menu. Go to “Video Add-ons” and then press the menu button on the remote. Click “Information”.
  • Click “Update” options on the Addon information page.
  • If a new Exodus update becomes available, you can install it from there.

What are the best Kodi addons for movies?

Besides Gaia, Tempest, Exodus Redux, The Oath, and Seren, these are some great and classic Kodi addons for mainstream movies: Crackle, Popcornflix, and Pluto.TV, that you will find inside the official Kodi addon repository. From different repositories you can find Netflix (CastagnaIT Repository) , DejaVu (dejavurepo, hosted on GitHub) and Morpheus (located in the Fractured Repository).

How can I update other addons on Fire TV?

The same steps from the question above will show you if there are updates from other addons available to be installed.

Is it legal to use Exodus V8m Exodus Redux, and other Kodi addons?

Kodi is a piece of software designed to stream content on a range of devices. The sources used to stream media with Kodi are going to determine whether or not using Kodi is legal. One of these sources are addons – and also repositories and builds – that can access unauthorized duplication of copyrighted content that is known as illicit streaming and effectively relates to any time you stream media without the copyright owner’s permission.

Should I Use a VPN When Using Kodi addons?

Yes. Even though Kodi is a free and open source media player application, builds and addons can stream illegal content. If this happens, you need to keep these streams private. On the other hand, using Kodi with a VPN helps to avoid hackers and viruses that can hurt your devices.

Simple, right?

You’ve probably noticed that we didn’t even have to do much writing for this guide, due to the simple and clean interface of these addons. All you had to do is carefully follow the steps illustrated in the images.

Of course, V8 and Redux are just two of the most reliable and popular addons you can upgrade your Kodi with. But don’t stop here if you want an even more sophisticated experience.
