Kodi 17 CHAPPiE Build FireStick Install (+ IMDB Top 1000 & BeatZ Music Addon)

This step-by-step tutorial teaches you the Kodi CHAPPiE Build FireStick Install process.  This install method works for ANY device – not just Firestick.  But I felt I should mention that CHAPPiE Build for Kodi 17 Krypton works extremely well.  Krypton is also one of the best lightweight Kodi builds.

What’s in Kodi CHAPPiE Build?

The following sections are present in the “Red” version of CHAPPiE build for Kodi 17 Krypton (install directions below).

  • Renegades is a section in CHAPPiE that launchces a TV program-guide style addon which attempts to load live TV sources and display them as a cable box would.  I couldn’t get this particular part of Chappie to work.  Specifically, it wouldn’t load the TV show names.  Maybe they’ll fix it soon.. but the other parts of Chappie worked well for me!  So keep reading to check out everything else Chappie build has to offer.
  • Chappie has Live TV addons for streaming IPTV and other current media.  Some Kodi IPTV addons Chappie has in store include TV Player, Oblivion, Notfilmon, Tiggers, Cerus, Turks UK Playlist, and Maverick IPTV.  In the “top row” of icons displayed above Chappie’s Live TV section are Project Cypher, FTFA, Enigma, iPlayer, and ITV.
  • Enjoy CHAPPiE’s Movie addons for watching video files.  Some movie addons included in Chappie are At The Flix, Real-Movies, Lions Den, Film Emporium, Dandymedia, Gurzil, Kingmovies, Goststreams, Bucky movies, and Poseiden.
  • Chappie has several TV show addons, including Kingmovies, Go Streams, Posiden, 1080p Movies, and Delorean.
  • Documentaries:  Chappie has an entire main menu section devoted to Documentaries!  Use Kodi movie addons such as Red Pill, Iconspire, Echo Doc’s, Brett’s Doc’s, Maverick Doc’s, and more.
  • Chappie also Music addons for listening to all kind of music.  Note:  BEATz is included in CHAPPiE build!  The BeatZ Kodi addon is an amazing little Kodi app that lets you search for MP3 files from across the Internet by Artist Name or Song Title.  Some other music addons included in CHAPPiE build are Now Music, Now USA, The Jukebox, Hippy’s Music, Music Source, and Top 40 Charts.
  • To see the rest of what Chappie has to offer, scroll down to the bottom of this tutorial.  Or just use the direction below to install it and see for yourself what Kodi Chappie build has to offer!

Chappie Build Post-Install Tips & HINTS

Expert Tip:  We recommend you check out the “BOB” section.  Then select “Valhalla” just above and to the right of “BOB” (with BOB as the “selected” menu in Kodi’s main menu).

Valhalla is above BOB in Chappie Build for Kodi

See Valhalla above and to the right of BOB? Check it out. It’s cool.

What Else Does Chappie Build Contain?

  • Chappie Build has a BOB section.  The BOB section contains various plugins developed by B.O.B (a Kodi addon maker).  Some of these BOB addons for Kodi include New Releases, Amazing TV, Bob Kid’s, Bob Doc’s, TNPB Boxsets, Music TV, Walk of Fame, and even a “Search” button.  BOB also has a row of icons at the top of the screen that say “Caira, Griffin, Shepo, T.A. Streams, Thunder, TNPB, and Valhalla”.  Each one of these icons   Note:  Bob is also known as BOB Unleashed.
    • Pro Tip:  Don’t underestimate the “Top Row” of icons above each main menu item in Chappie build.  For example, the “Valhalla” button (above the word “B.O.B.” in the Chappie home screen) takes you to an amazing list of media files.  Some sub-lists in this main “Valhalla” list include Hot Movies, IMDB Top 1000, Best of 2017, Best of 2016, Best of 2015, Actors, Anthology, Horror, Marvel vs DC, Crime, Danish Collection, Kids & Animation, and “Dog’s Place”.  So check out these awesome media lists for great video streaming in Kodi Chappie build.
    • Extra Tip:  If you choose the IMDB Top 1000 list, the list will load – but slowly.  I selected the IMDB Top 1000 kodi list and about 5 minutes later it was currently at 495 out of 1000.  After about 10 minutes, the entire list of 1000 movies loaded up just fine!  Instantly I was watching an amazing classic movie.  So give Kodi Chappie Build just a few minutes to load up the complete Kodi IMDB Top 1000 List!  Then stream to your heart’s content.
  • Chappie Build contains several more sections like:  Bennu, Turks, Wolfpack, All In 1, Kids, Sports, Subs, Music (where BeatZ is at!), and of course, the Kodi System menu.  Here’s a screenshot of each section in Kodi Chappie build:

    These are the icons above “Bob”, which I call the “Top Row”. Valhalla is my favorite Top Row icon in Chappie Build so far. But there’s so much in Chappie Build, I haven’t explored it all yet.
