This guide shows you how to install Kodi Durex Build on Kodi 17.1 Krypton or later.

What is Durex Build and Why is it Cool?

Kodi Durex Build is a favorite Kodi build for many Kodi users due to its impressive assortment of streaming TV addons.  It also has a pretty unique 3-row user-interface. The three rows include the standard Kodi menu (the one that has “Add-Ons, Movies, System” etc.), then a “secondary menu” or sub-menu, and then Durex Build’s third row of buttons, or icons.

Hey Amazon FireStick users – Durex Build works great on Fire Stick & Fire TV!

Plenty of Menus, Buttons & Addons in Durex Build

So, Kodi 17.1 Durex Build gives us plenty of buttons to press, which is nice.  Additionally, Durex automatically pulls the latest movies from Exodus and displays them at the top of the home screen as clickable quick-launch icons.  It’s pretty sweet.  Keep reading to set it up quickly.

Problems with Durex Build Install

If you have trouble installing Durex Wizard in Kodi Krypton, check these troubleshooting steps:

Kodi runs slowly after installing Durex Build

If Kodi is sluggish after installing Durex, wait at least 5 mintues for all of Durex’s TV addons to update (such as Exodus, SALTS and others).  Make sure Durex has finished applying all updates (no more “update” notifications appear).  Then re-launch Kodi.

Or if you’re using a very low-power device, such as a cheap Android streaming stick, then consider upgrading to a higher-power device.  Even old FireSticks run slowly with some Kodi builds.

Durex Build streams won’t connect

If the streams in Durex Build won’t connect for you, try to install a different Kodi Build like Kodi 17.1 NO LIMITS.
