The Looking Glass Wizard seems incredibly promising for a modification of the Aftermath Wizard template. The developers have a grand vision of what Kodi users want in a Wizard and seem quite capable of delivering. If you want a wide selection of Kodi builds to choose from, you get them within the Looking Glass Wizard. You also get an impressive assortment of maintenance tools for when streams die off or Kodi begins to feel sluggish.

Preparation for Installation

Kodi Installed and Updated

Before you can install any third-party Kodi TV addons, which includes repos, builds and wizards, you must first have Kodi installed. I think that should go without saying, but better safe than confuzzled. If you’d like to review the very best way to install Kodi, check out our guide to updating and installing to the latest (and last) Kodi Krypton release. You can access it here at How to Install/Update Kodi 17.6.

Unknown Sources

Once you have Kodi running, you need to enable the use of unknown sources. If you’ve not done this yet, then head over to our How To Enable Unknown Sources guide at this time.

Stop Automatic Updates

In the third-party Kodi TV addons landscape of today, turning off automated updates helps keep you safe. Individuals, private organizations, and government agencies alike have overtaken or hacked Kodi repositories and injected malware and spyware. You can avoid these by checking a trusted source before updating your TV addons manually. Whenever issues start cropping up, as they do with Kodi over time, stop in and ask here. We help when we can, and usually have the latest Kodi TV addons news. If you wish to stop automated updates from potentially stealing from or spying on you, then check out our Turn Off Automatic Updates guide.

Looking Glass Repo

The Looking Glass Wizard resides in the Looking Glass Repo. If you have this installed already, then jump to the wizard installation section. If you still need the Looking Glass repo installed, swing by our How to Install Looking Glass Kodi Repository tutorial. We’ll remain right here until you return. I promise.
