This tutorial, fully updated for January 2018, shows you how to install Kodi 17 Wookie Build on Amazon Fire Stick or any other device that supports Kodi. Actually, three Kodi 17 Wookie Builds exist, but the Wookie Wizard also includes a vast number of builds built by the Wookie community.
Update: Wookie Wizard is dead (thanks to Lee, Jeff, Michael and Sarah on the KFireTV FB page:). We can still install the Wookie Wizard zip file using the Source https://archive.org/download/ClickMeSuccumbToTheWookie1. But the Wookie Wizard has no real installable content (the “Install” button is unclickable) after you launch it.
- Feel free to install the Wookie Wizard zip file using the steps below. Although we recommend you check out a different (working) Kodi build on the KFireTV homepage, instead.

Kodi 17 Wookie Builds
Since Kodi 17 Krypton came out, the Kodi 17 Wookie Build ranks among the most downloaded and installed Kodi builds. The Kodi 17 Wookie Build comes
in three flavors: Kodi 17 Wookie Lite Build, Kodi 17 Wookie Retro Build, and Kodi 17 Wookie New Look Build. All three variants have much more in common than they have different from one another. You’ll find the major differences lying in their user-interface, so let’s take a look at each Kodi 17 Wookie build.
Kodi 17 Wookie Lite Build
Wookie Lite Build comes with slightly fewer add-ons, so requires less storage and memory. It works without issue on any and all Kodi capable devices, no matter how old the hardware.
Kodi 17 Wookie Retro Build
The most popular Wookie Build, the Wookie Retro Build weighs in as a 325.14 MB download. It comes with a list of popular add-ons such as Falcon Sports, Now Music, Real Movies, Zen, Sports Angel, Wookie flix, Aurora, White devil Streams, Players Klub Beta, Silent Hunter, Maverick TV, One242415, Openload Movies, Perfect HD Movies, Pro Sport, Release Hub, Stream army, Sanctuary, SKyNet, Specto Fork, Evolve ,Phoenix, wolfpack, Bob, Dandy Media, DC Sports, Exodus, Deliverance, Echo streams, HUF, Gobble, Indigi Istream, M4U, Sports Devil, The Pyramid, Tigen Worlds, UK Turk Playlists, Vevo and Veetle. Moreover, it also comes with a 4k Zone section where users can watch content in 4k resolution.
Kodi 17 Wookie New Look Build
Weighing in at 403.45 MB to Download, the Wookie New Look Build comes with the option to switch between two different user-interfaces. In addition to this, it also includes all the popular add-ons that the other Wookie builds have.
Kodi 17 Wookie Community Builds
While Wookie community members made this build, the Wookie team consider it awesome enough to include on their official builds list. The Megamind Community Build contains all sorts of win. This build definitely deserves a look-see, so give it an install and prepare to be wowed.

How to Install the Wookie Build of Your Choice

Let him have it; it’s not wise to upset a Wookie.
