    addon install - Add-ons

  2. Select File manager.
    addon install - Kodi file manager
  3. Select Add source from the left pane (the right pane is in case you want to move files from one folder to another, if you're using a mouse you may need to double click it).
  4. Click the line where it says <None> and enter the following url:
    https://cyphermediagit.github.io
    Note: some servers may be case-sensitive.
    addon install - Add new source
    click OK after you are done typing.
  5. Below that, if there isn't already, enter a name for the source which will be easy for you to recognize in the future. Click OK
  6. Now press the return button twice to return to home-screen.
    Navigate into Add-ons.
    addon install - Add-ons
  7. Click the open box icon (above the side-menu).
    addon install - openbox
  8. Select Install from zip file.
    • If this is the first addon you install, Kodi will warn you about installing addons from "unknown sources" for security reasons - it's your call.
    • In any case, Kodi will warn you, you may not get auto-updates for this addon.
  9. Look for the name of the source as it was entered in step 5, select the repository zip file you see inside it.
    That's it. The rest of the instructions are as detailed in installing Via Repository, use the repository you've just installed.
