TaQ 18, a Looking Glass Community Build, weighs in as a lightweight contender of note. Do not let its miniature size fool you, though. Under the hood, the massively optimized engine roars. The TaQ 18 build has a wonderfully minimalist interface along with a huge selection of working Kodi addons. The latest nightly builds of Kodi 18 seem stable, so choosing a simple build built specifically for Leia makes sense. Coming hot on the heels of the TeverZ Ultra Build, this may end up your favorite Kodi 18 Leia optimized build.

It’s easy to see why KFire TV placed the TaQ build on our Best Kodi Builds page. With this tiny, yet powerful build, early adapters of Kodi 18 Leia on the Firestick and other small memory devices can finally find happiness. Check out our Kodi 18 Builds page for more specific info on working Kodi 18 Leia builds, so you remain ready as Kodi 18 rolls out. The Kodi 18 builds page contains only builds that seem to currently work wonderfully with Kodi 18 Leia.

Prerequisites to Installing the TaQ 18 Builds through Looking Glass

Before installing the TaQ 18 build, you must complete a few necessities. You may already have them done, so just quickly check this list off. None of these requirements consumes much time with proper guidance.

Kodi Installed and Updated

Obviously, no matter what device you plan to use it on, you need Kodi installed first and foremost. Follow our Kodi 17.6 Install/Update page, so you learn the easiest ways to install and fully update Kodi.

Enable Unknown Sources in Kodi 18 Leia

Since the release of Kodi 17 Krypton, Kodi requires Unknown Sources enabled prior to installing third-party addons. The rich world of third-party Kodi TV addons, wizards, builds, and even repositories, remains out of reach until completing this step. Follow our simple tutorial on how to enable Unknown Sources to get this taken care of if still needed. The guide uses Kodi 17 Krypton for the examples, but all steps remain the same for Kodi 18 Leia.

How to Install the Looking Glass Wizard

If you desire Kodi 18 builds, then your best bet is the Looking Glass Wizard. The Looking Glass community holds the largest collection of Kodi 18 Leia builds anywhere at this time. Once you install the Looking Glass Wizard, then you have easy access to all of them. The process for installing each remains the same as that which we walk you through right here for TaQ 18.
