OK Guys,

The only one working at the moment is The Beast Encore in the wizard which too be honest is totally up to date as it updates all its add ons when first run and I am also run running this version with no problems at all. It's best thing to do is download your wizard from spartanpixel.net, enter your credentials and only install that version of the beast ok until it all gets sorted out.

Sorry for the problems but follow my post and you will have a working version but again get it from spartanpixex peops

I tried the http://spartanpixel.net/repo when try to install from zip and choose the wizard it fails every time, so I uninstalled kodi and went to http://thebeastkodi.com/repo and downloaded the APK for my NVidia and I went a bit further I actually was able to run the wizard but no matter which build I choose (beast, encore, royalist) they all fail as soon as download prompt opens up and that is as closes I have go so far.

this is so weird as i did an install today and yes I noticed they weren't working but out of the 3 builds that is in the wizard I got one to download and install no problems I am sure its the encore version that only worked but at work in office so can't check again. But yes there are problems and I have escalated them to @Tech Timeruuu for our members so hopefully this will get sorted soon but you must remember he is a busy man but no doubt once he knows there are problems he will get straight to it for us all buddy.

I have been trying since 11 am USA Central time.  I did get the wizard to download once, but figuring that I messed up some where I reset my Firestick and now it will not load.  I did see on the Ares forum that one of the Archive site has changed something, and this may cause things to not load, no matter what wizard you use.

I have tried ares and Spartan.  Now with Spartan I get the authentication failure error.  My password does have an '*'.  would this be the problem, as I can login to the wizard section just fine with it.

Guys, I'm sure they're working on the issue.  Understand that this is a "free" service (if you haven't donated) and these guys have a personal life which doesn't always include getting onto problems right away. 

Something to try if you happen to have it installed on another computer.  You can always copy the userdata, media, and addons folder from your other install and simply move them over to your fresh copy device, located in C:/users/[your user name]/appdata/roaming/kodi or even just open the addons folder, go into packages, and copy over the .zip folder that you previously used.  It may not be a fresh copy of thebeast (mine is currently from April 14th), but it will keep you operating until the problem is solved.  Just an option.

the pc part is easy, what about getting it onto the friestick?  the version i had was from back in january, and it went off yesterday, cant get it back, it was one of the best versions, it had the couch on it, loved it, i just hope when all the issues are done, we will finally have a stable version. as for donations, i always said it would be a great idea, but it would have to be a monthly thing, or a yearly discounted price.

Have you tried the apk version from the sticky post?  I wish I had my firestick available at the moment to try a few things like using certain downloaders and shared files, but I'm afraid I won't be back home to try till tomorrow afternoon.  Sorry for not being much help to you in that area.  :\

Still getting 0 bytes from the .zip folder when I go to install from zip through kodi.  When I access it from my computer, as in going directly to https://spartanpixel.net/repo through the webpage on my PC, the files and folders are present and info exists in the files.  However, when I access it through Kodi, it just shows 0 B for everything.  Same with http://thebeastkodi.com/repo. 

Once you get the zip program installed though, the builds are present and downloading just fine through the program.

I also tried going from secure to normal http and it's the same for both, as well as through the beast link.  Both are showing the same problem for me.  Again, if I click on the links above, however, the files show info in them, just not when I access them through Kodi on the PC and Firestick.

Https just allows for a secure connection of the application protocol.  If none exists, it will simply default to the normal transfer protocol.  In most cases, unless you absolutely need a secure connection, it doesn't matter if you add the 's' or not.

Guys, can I get some help. I re-set my fire stick back to factory. Had no problems getting Kodi. However, when I download the Encore version it's now different. It has moving backgrounds and just not as functional. I then re-set my firestick again to try the new Beast. Now my Kodi will not launch with the new Beast download.

I am going to re-set it again and just wait for further instructions. In my search online, it appears others are having this problem as well. Any help on getting the Encore version back without the moving backgrounds and old set up? All the thanks!

be advised, that version updates are constant, and can range from hourly to daily to monthly, every version is different, and its only a matter of time before they update again

you did not have to reset the firestick so many times, all you had to do was go into APPLICATIONS, MANAGE INSTALLED APPLICATIONS, and CLEAR DATA on kodi

I did not even bother with kodi install I went to chrisB site http://thebeastkodi.com and downloaded the the beast APK which includes kodi, and it worked great for my NVidia and firestick, you have to remove the old kodi completely, use ADB to send the APK to the firestick, anyways that worked for me
