How to Change Skins on Kodi Jarvis / Krypton / Leia

The guide below shows you how easy it is to change the appearance of your Kodi setup by changing the skin. Most skins are available through Kodi but there are mods of some of these skins which you will need to download manually and install as a zip file.


It is becoming more and more important to protect yourself online. This can easily be done using a VPN that stops your internet provider from being able to see what you are accessing online. It also removes any blocks put in place by your internet provider. They are also great for using when you are using public unsecured Wi-Fi

2 VPNs I use and can recommend are IPvanish & StrongVPN. Below are links to their websites. Both of which will give you an extra discount.


How to Change Skins on Kodi Jarvis

  • Open Kodi
  • Select SYSTEM
  • Select Appearance
  • Select Skin > Skin
  • The next screen that appears shows the skins that you currently have installed. If you have never installed a skin then there will probably just be the default Confluence skin listed here
  • To add skins to your device select Get More
  • The next screen will list all the available skins
  • If you know what skin you want just scroll down and select it. If you don't know then just try out a few to see which you like. For this example we will use the Amber skin
  • The skin will now begin to download and install
  • When the skin has finished installing you will be asked if you would like to switch to the new skin, select YES
  • The new skin is now installed and applied

To tweak the appearance further go to:

System > Settings > Appearance > Skin > Settings

In there you can change what appears on the homepage, change the background, create a custom menu and much more.

  • Scroll through the list and choose a skin you want to install. Unfortunately there are no previews so you won't know what the skin looks like until you have installed it. You could always do an image search to see what the skin looks like online before trying.
