How to Install Xenon Build in Kodi

You’ll find the Kodi Xenon Build install process super simple whether you’ve installed builds into Kodi before or not. Let’s get some prerequisites out of the way and then get on with it.

Advanced Kodi Users

If you have experience with Kodi installations and setups, you probably only need the source location. The Diggz Wizard lives at http://repo.jdiggz.com.

Novice Kodi Users

If you just received a new Fire TV Stick, you might want to start at step one. Or if all this techno-babble means nothing to you, then let’s get you in the right place to follow along. If you need to install Kodi, check out our Kodi Installation Tutorial first, then come back here to make it awesome. If you have Kodi installed, then you’ve already gotten over the largest hurdle.

Once Kodi is installed, you need to launch it by first pressing the Home button on your Fire TV Stick remote control. Then, head to the right in the menu up top until you reach Settings. From here, you want to go to Applications > Manage Installed Applications > Kodi > Launch Application. With Kodi running, you can now follow the installation guide for the Kodi Xenon Build.

This makes the installation of third-party Kodi TV addons possible. It’ll be quick and easy; I promise. We’ll be right here when you get it done.

Kodi Xenon Build Installation Steps

Now, here are the basic steps to set-up the Xenon Build for Kodi.

Add Kodi Source for Diggz Wizard

  1. From the Kodi home screen, select the Gear icon from the top left part of the Kodi screen. This takes you into the Kodi “System” menu.
    Enter Kodi System Settings

    Open the System Menu

  2. Then, select the File Manager.

    Enter the File Manager

    Name it Diggz, check Typos and OK

    Name it Diggz, check Typos and OK

Install the Diggz Repository

This is a private repo just for the Diggz Wizard and a few support items. This guarantees the latest updates.

  1. Now, go back to the Kodi home screen, then to the Add-Ons area.
    Choose Add-ons menu item

    Choose Add-ons in Kodi’s Main Menu

  2. Select the Package Manager icon in the top left corner
    Kodi Xenon Build - Add-on Browser

    Select the Add-on Browser (AKA the Package Manager)

  3. Choose Install From Zip File

  4. Then, choose the newly-added source (“Diggz“)

    Select the Diggz Source

  5. Now, select the zip file you see (named something like repository.diggz-1.2.zip), then click OK. Note the zip file doesn’t appear to remain selected when you move over to the OK button. Kodi has had this visual glitch forever, but you can see the zip file selected in the bottom status bar of the dialog. If it appears so, go ahead and click OK.

  • Install the Kodi Xenon Build

    The Diggz Wizard has been updated since the video Ian made above, so some things have changed. I think you’ll find the process remains easy as pie with the changes, or even easier.

    1. The Diggz Wizard launches automatically after install, so select what you’d like to save. It doesn’t hurt to keep them all selected if you don’t know what these are. Click on Continue.

    2. Then, the Diggz Wizard will prompt you to install a build.

    3. If you elect not to install at this time, you can find the Diggz Wizard in Kodi’s Program add-ons, then come back here later.

    4. Having chosen to install a build in the Diggz Wizard, you are presented with a selection. Choose the latest Xenon Build.

    5. Then, decide whether you want a Fresh Install or to keep your current Kodi TV addons intact with a Standard Install. I suggest the Fresh Install to avoid potential incompatibilities and such.

    6. When the download and install is complete, select “Force Close
      Allow Diggz Wizard to Force Close Kodi

    7. Then, re-launch Kodi. Do this from the Fire TV home screen by going to Settings > Applications > Manage Installed Applications. Scroll down and click on Kodi, then choose Launch Application.
    8. Wait for Xenon Build Kodi to start up! Give Xenon Build for Kodi a few minutes to update all the add-ons and get all settled into your Firestick or Fire TV.

    9. Lastly, perhaps the most important step: protect yourself with a secure VPN! Then, stream on, Wayne. And stream on, Garth.

    1. Hi Annie,

      That sounds odd. Have you resolved this issue? I just went through the process on a fresh Kodi installation again and the Diggz Wizard’s build menu opened fine with Xenon vX.7.3.5 and under construction v1 available. It could be possible that the download was corrupted somehow, or maybe that file was in the process of being updated and had a temporary bug at the moment you accessed it. Can you try downloading the wizard again with a clean install of Kodi?

    2. I keep getting a screen that says “couldn’t retrieve directory info. this could be due to the network not being connected.” what does that mean? what network?

    3. Hey Amber,

      That’s simply Kodi developers making a guess. They could just as easily have said, “this could be due to the server being down.” In this case, I think they simply should have stated “directory info unavailable” and left it at that. The files Kodi is trying to access remotely simply aren’t available, whatever the reason. When it comes to third-party Kodi repositories, the best estimation of why it is unavailable is probably anti-piracy related. You might try another build if this one doesn’t come back up right away; several can be found on the KFire TV front page. Also, while I know it just sounds like marketing, a VPN truly is required to remain safe and secure while using Kodi.

      Hi i have just installed kodi 17.6 with no problems. When i come to install a build or an add on i get to the step where i install from zip file. When i click on this there is nothing there. Im losing my mind with this. Please help before i eat my firestick…….

    5. Check for any typos, that trips a lot of people up from the jump.

    6. How do I remove an add on, such as Xenon. It’s not working for me and I’d like to try a fresh install of a different add on you recommend. Thanks

    7. Depends on what you have Kodi installed on. Generally you can just go to the settings menu for that add-on and install from there. On my tablet, I can just long-press to pull that up and get the option.
