The Yoda Kodi Addon

This article will take you through a step-by-step process to install and use the Yoda Kodi addon on Kodi Krypton 17.6 and Kodi 18.6 Leia. You can use the following guide to install the Yoda Kodi addon on any Kodi-supported device such as Amazon Fire TV Stick, Android mobiles, iOS devices, Windows, Mac, etc. 

The Yoda addon, inspired by the greatest Star Wars Jedi Knight, is among the most popular Kodi addons for Kodi Leia. It is a part of the Supremacy Repo and is based on Exodus and Covenant. The Yoda Kodi addon is one of the most high-quality additions to Kodi. 

Note: Before you begin reading the guide, you must know that the Kodi addon wasn’t accessible the last time we tried to install it in October 2022. However, our team is constantly checking for updates. We will update this article if the repository is back on or relaunched in any other form. Meanwhile, we suggest you try some other popular Kodi addons – such as The Oath, Nemesis AIO, and The Crew.

Installing the Yoda Kodi Addon

Since Yoda is a third-party addon, it isn’t officially available on the Kodi repository. In order to install the Yoda addon, we first need to allow third-party installation on Firestick. For that, you will have to follow a relatively short process:

  1. Go to the Kodi home screen. Select ‘Settings’ and go to ‘System Settings’.Kodi System option in settings 
  2. Choose the ‘Add-ons’ option from the sidebar on the left. 
  3. Look for ‘Unknown Sources’ on the right. Click it to turn it on (You might see a warning message, please ignore and click on yes) Under Settings/System category, choosing Add-ons shows Unknown sources with an on-off slider button

There you go! You can now use a third-party app that will allow you to download and install the Yoda addon on Kodi. The next step is to add a source of the repository in order to download the Yoda addon.

How to Add a Source Repository on Kodi

As mentioned earlier, Yoda isn’t available on the Kodi repository. Due to that, we have to download the Yoda addon directly from the internet. To do that, we will first need to add a source of the repository. This source will allow us to fetch installation files from the web. Here we go: 

Step 1: Let’s head back to the Kodi home screen and select the settings icon from the top left corner of the screen.

(Tip: It is located right under the Kodi logo) Kodi Settings button is indicated by a large cog button at the top of the left navigation menu on Home Page

Step 2: Now go to the ‘File Manager’. If you are using Kodi 18, the file manager will be in the top row.  Kodi File Manager in settings

Step 3: Select the ‘Add Source’ option on the right side of the window. In Kodi File Manager, Add source appears as an option

If you are unable to see the ‘Add Source’ option,  you might have added multiple sources previously. Don’t worry! You can find the option at the bottom of the list. 

Step 4: A pop box will appear. Select ‘<None>’ and type the URL: http://www.lvtvv.com/repo as it is. Kodi File Manager pop-up to enter www.lvtvv.com repo

Please type the URL carefully. You might not find the Yoda add-on on Kodi if there are typos in the URL. 

Step 5: After entering the URL, select the field ‘Enter a name for this media source’. You can now add a name to the source. We are using the name “Star Wars” for this guide. Kodi File Manager pop-up to enter a name for lvtvv media source

It would be best if you entered a name you’d remember in the future for a seamless installation process. 

Step 6: Click on OK

Well done! You’re halfway through the process. Let’s move on to the next step.

How to Install Yoda Addon and Repository

Now let’s install the new repository. You will be using this repository to download and install the Yoda addon on Kodi. 

Step 1: Head back to the Kodi home screen and select ‘Add-ons’ from the left. Kodi home page shows Add-ons on the left navigation menu

Step 2: Next, select ‘Package Installer’

It is a dropbox-like logo located on the top left corner of your screen, right under the Kodi logo. Kodi install icon from the repository option under Add-ons

Step 3: Select ‘Install from zip file’.

Step 4: Now look for the name of your source. We are choosing Kodil for this installation. 

Step 5: Now, find a zip file named ‘repository.kodil-1.3.zip.’  Select this file. 

The name of the zip file will vary as per the Kodi version you’re using.

Step 9: Next, select ‘Video add-ons’.

You will have a long list of video add-ons in front of you. Let’s find the Star Wars Hero in this list. 

Step 10: Click on ‘Yoda’

Step 11: Next, select the ‘Install’ button from the bottom right corner. For those using the Kodi Leia version, select ‘OK’ after clicking on the install button. 

Let’s wait for the “Yoda add-on installed” notification. 

Well, that’s about it. You’ve successfully installed the Yoda Kodi addon on Firestick. Let’s try it out. 

Go back to the Kodi home screen and find the Yoda addon there. You might not find it on the home page if you have a number of Kodi addons pre-installed on Firestick.

Head to Add-ons and select ‘Video add-ons’. You will definitely find Yoda there. 

A note of caution: it would be best if you connect to a trusted VPN service before you start streaming online for free using Kodi addons and builds. Streaming content for free might land you legal trouble. Having a reliable VPN for Kodi will mask your IP address from cybercriminals and governments. 

We personally use ExpressVPN and find it the most secure and fastest amongst all the other VPNs out there. 

Before we begin the installation, we’d suggest you get an Express VPN annual Subscription. Express VPN is one of the most secure VPN services you can find. You can get a three-month free subscription and an additional 45% discount if you opt for an annual plan. You can also get a free 30-day trial with a refund guarantee.

If you’re not satisfied with the service, you can always get your money back.
