      ūüĒ•ūüė°ūüĒ• Covenant Kodi Addon Repository Shuts Down 16th November 2017 ūüĒ•ūüė°ūüĒ•   11/16/2017

      Covenant Kodi Addon Repository Shuts Down After MPAA Threatens Kodi Developer JSergio123 Millions of Covenant, Bennu and DeathStreams users will be displeased to hear that the Colossus repository has been shut down! We don’t have much information as of yet, but from what we’ve heard jsergio123 was threatened by the MPAA earlier today. We haven’t heard from him directly, but different sources have been saying things about what’s happening. He was told to immediately cease Kodi addon development. In case you don’t know who jsergio123 is, he’s been into Kodi addon development for quite some time now, developing different addons over the years. He was also part of the Colossus group, but as far as we have been told, he wasn’t actually contributing to the development of allegedly infringing Kodiaddons such as Covenant, Bennu, DeathStreams and Sportie. This is going to be bad news for Covenant, Bennu and DeathStreams users unless someone steps up to the plate and takes over development. Since the Colossal repository has been deleted, users will have to install a new repository in order to continue to receive updates in the event that another developers takes over Covenant development. It should be noted that none of the Colossus developers nor addons were part of TV ADDONS since we relaunched our site in August. Whether or not he was doing anything wrong, the threat of legal action from the MPAA would be enough for anyone to call it a day. He wasn’t making any money from his development, and no mere mortal can afford a costly legal fight with the big day MPAA. He would go bankrupt fighting to continue developing addons for which he didn’t benefit. We haven’t heard anything about the rest of the Colossal repository developers, but the MPAA identifying one of their own seems to have been enough to scare Echo Coder into deleting his GitHub repositories and Twitter account as well. As far as we have been told, only jsergio123 received a cease and desist, in which they held him responsible for everything in the Colossal repo, including Covenant, Bennu, DeathStreams and Sportie. As for URLResolver development, TV ADDONS has been distributing URLResolver from our community repository since our return in August. We plan on continuing to provide updates, although we expect things to be slowed a bit by jsergio123’s sudden retirement. We really hope that new developers will come forward and contribute Kodi addon code at our URLResolver Development GitHub page. We wish jsergio123 the best in all his future endeavours and thank him for tweeting his endorsement for TV ADDONS earlier today. TV ADDONS is prepared to fight this fight, to ensure that copyright law isn’t expanded. The law is on our side, but our opponents are fierce and lawyers don’t work for free. If you’d like to contribute to our legal battle, please feel free to do so via our donation page on TVAddons   Thank You  And Have A Great Day.

      ūüĒ•ūüĒ•ūüĒ•THE ANSWER TO WHY MOST KODI ADDONS NOT WORKING AT THE MOMENTūüĒ•ūüĒ•ūüĒ•   11/17/2017

      ūüĒ•ūüĒ•ūüĒ•THE ANSWER TO WHY MOST KODI ADDONS NOT WORKING AT THE MOMENTūüĒ•ūüĒ•ūüĒ• ¬† THE IMPORTANCE OF URLResolver EXPLAINED WHY MOST THINGS NOT WORKING AT THE MOMENT The shutdown of the Colossus repo and the two other developers‚Äô addons is undoubtedly a severe blow to the Kodi scene. But, while many casual users might be familiar with Colossus and Bennu, most won‚Äôt appreciate the importance of URLResolver. Most recently maintained by jsergio12 and distributed via a well know add-on distributor, this is an extremely important addon. Here‚Äôs how it works. When Kodi plays content using addons, whether that‚Äôs a movie or TV show, links to that content have to be obtained (scraped) from sites hosting it. This means that all addons would ordinarily have to have their own code in order to find the URLs where that content can be obtained. It can be a different process for every video host, a big job for any developer. That‚Äôs where URLResolver comes in. This clever tool helps other addons access content by resolving video hosting site URLs to enable related content to be played in Kodi. URLResolver is a really important tool but since it comes packaged with addons that rely on it, most users won‚Äôt even know it‚Äôs already on their system. They‚Äôll definitely miss it when it‚Äôs gone, since among other things it was utilized by the extremely popular Covenant addon. All may not be lost though, since the well know add-on distributor¬†indicate they‚Äôll try to keep URLResolver alive. The well know add-on distributor¬†has been distributing URLResolver from our community repository since our return in August. They say they plan on continuing to provide updates, although we expect things to be slowed a bit by jsergio123‚Äôs sudden retirement,‚ÄĚ the site said. ¬† Thank You¬†¬†And Have A Great Day.

Having exactly the same problems have installed The beast numerous time on older firesticks but today got 2 brand new ones from Amazon and they are giving me more or lees the problems noted in here, Also menus missing and background pictures. After restarting The Beast I get the original Kodi skin and menu bar but all beast add ons are in the video add ons like its only done a partial install. Have also done what TECH suggested and still the same problems. So whats happing anybody is it newer firesticks or is the Beast been corrupted. I am now resetting firestick back to factory and starting again for the 3rd time. This time not going to install firestarter incase thats the problem.

Hi having exactly the same issues listed above. After first run of a fresh install kodi 16 and beast 1.6 update 2nd march) using the 1.1 Spartan wizard the stick crashes and reverts back to the original kodi screen (blue bubbles) with lots of stick performance data in the top left hand side of screen. Seems to always happen after the Image resolution add on is updated as Sam pointed out.

did that but all the list on bottom bar had gone as well. Seems strange that only today people are reporting this. I have installed The Beast about 6 times this week on m8s sticks they have had a while its funny all of a sudden this is happening. Amazon run out of sticks this week hence these are new batch that the only difference my end as i said done this loads of times with no problems so i just don't get it. ok kodi on now so now the beast will report back shortly.

btw can firestarter be installed after as i always put it on first?

when you first install the beast..... try giving it 30 secs or so before pulling plug just to make sure its fully extracted mate... once you power back on.... leave it.... (think the trouble a few are having is when the skin is trying to build menus and shortcuts etc..... instead of force closing it if it goes wrong... try power exit (if it will let you) and then relaunch and leave it to see if it updates and builds the menus.  to get rid of log ive posted a pinned post under beast menu

you got it when skin is building the screen goes completely black for about 10 secs and that never used to happen, this i think is where the prob lies as i have never seen it go black when it building the skins on first run of the beast. Anyway about to install will BRB

I have literally just reset the stick back to factory settings again, eventually added repo then when installing from zip click on repo and nothing happens now it does not open to let you install wizard hence i don't care what anyone says i am convinced these new batches of sticks amazon have done something as I have just set my old stick back to factory and installed everything with no problem at all. The worrying thing I have 3 new sticks and the 2 I have tried are having the same problems. It has to be the new batch surely???
