How to Install The Beast Build Kodi

MJD 0 Comments

Below is a guide for installing one of the Beast builds for Kodi. These builds are conbstantly updated and the wizard contains an update button so you don't need to do a clean install whenever you want to up the Beast build.

This is a 3rd party add-on so no please do not post questions about this add-on in the official Kodi forums. If you have issues you can follow me on Twitter and ask for a follow back and I will gladly DM any help I can.


  • First you must sign up for an account as these details are needed before the wizard will allow you to install the build. Fortunately the verification process allows you to add fake details. Using the guide below you will see how it is done. Take a look at how I signed up with false details before clicking on the signup page link
  • Click here to go to the signup page If you have an ad-blocker it will keep giving you a popup telling you to turn it off. Disable it temporarily for this.
  • Scroll down to section that asks for a name, email and password. As you can see I have put in fake details. Just make sure you make a note of the email and password you use as you will need these later. Click REGISTER

  • You will now be taken to a new page. There will be some text saying 'Thank you for registering with us. Please login to continue. Click on login link

  • On the next page scroll down to the login section and enter the email and password you made up and click LOGIN

  • You will now be on a new page. Scroll down to the bottom and click on the red VERIFY link

That is the signup process complete. Now to install the build.


By Default Kodi 17 has Unknown Sources disabled. So we must enable this first. Once this is done it doesn't need doing again. If you have already done this just scroll down a few steps to the section marked Now to install the Beast Build

  • Select Add-ons
