      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.

Hi there,

I have tagged @Sarah Barker for you as she is our Kodi 17 expert so when she logs on she will see I have tagged her and see your question and will hopefully help you out with this, I am a Apple Mac man so where windows is concerned forget it as I left windows back on win 7 days lol.

I'm having the same problem but on fire stick. It's looking like it's forcing close before the extraction is complete

Hi @clemo  & @Kelles87 I will need you both to do a fresh start if you are still having these issues, then start from scratch with me.  

 

please follow the above and confirm with me you've done so, we will then install beast. ūüėä

Thanks! Sarah

@clemo you are getting those screens correctly. The last link you showed me  https://prnt.sc/fg65ed

you have to select The Beast 17.3 may 27th. Then it installs, then when it's done you force close. When you reopen it will load correctly. If you watch the video I showed you step by step it shows what I'm describing. Follow above and let me know after ‚ėļÔłŹ

Thanks Sarah

Hi Andrew @clemo¬†I'm glad you got it working! As I mentioned though your screen prints showed that you'd completed the¬†correct steps, you just hadn't finished the last one by choosing the build. Great job though! Let me know if you have any other questions! ūüĎćūüŹĽ‚ėļÔłŹ

@clemo¬†also I have windows 10 as well as Fire tvs, nvidia shield & other android boxes, & ive installed tons of times, it's very easy to skip a step by mistake when new to kodi & get turned around. Just after you enter your username & password into kodi & get this screen below‚¨áÔłŹ That's when you pick the latest date (in this case beast 17.3 May 27th) select it, it installs (takes a few minutes) and then you force close & restart/reopen.¬†Just glad you worked it out!¬†

@clemo¬†no one else Ive ever come across has been stuck at this point specifically. You didn't get the Beast Build build because you only installed the wizard. The last screen you came to are the builds, you chose one and install it. You only force close after you see it installing, and you get a message that says you can exit now. ‚ėļÔłŹ People mainly get stuck on registering at the website.¬†

Sarah-

  I'm actually having the exact same problem as @clemo.

This is on a fire stick with kodi 17.3. Cache and data was cleared from kodi, followed all of the steps to the letter.

 

I get to the beast wizard, I select the most current build (in this case, the June 7th release), it downloads. Then gets to the extraction phase. Extraction progress bar goes all the way to the end and then The window pops up telling me to power off the device. I unplug, plug back in, wait 3 min to start up kodi...and The beast hasn't installed and I'm back to the basic kodi home screen where I can select the beast wizard again.

 

am I supposed to unplug BEFORE I press OK and force close the beast wizard? Or should I press ok, force close, and then unplug?

Disregard!

 

figured it out!

on the fire stick, I had to click ok on the "power down" pop up, then force close, and THEN power down. I was powering down when the first pop up at the end of extraction comes up. So I was powering down before force closing.

Hi @Jon82¬†oh great! I'm so glad you got it! I think Andrew made a similar, (yet easy) side step¬†as well! It's crazy how one tiny misstep can completely throw us off. Just remember (to everyone) make sure to follow each step, step by step, anytime you get stuck with anything kodi related, you most likely missed something very minute but prevents you from proceeding. If you are following along and something seems like it doesn't match instructions, go back & read carefully, it will prevent a lot of frustration! Or just ask us! I love a challenge‚ėļÔłŹ

Hi @Sarah Barker  I cannot seem to get beast to install.  have a android box.  5.1 kodi 17.3  I have tried hitting ok at end of extraction and ok to force close then unplug.  I wait 3 mins at reboot of box before i launch kodi.  then i see default kodi screen with beast wizard installed and kodi repos. i have tried unplug as soon as extraction is completed as well lol.   i had the same issue with trying to install pulse.  Now i am new to this but am usually pretty good with comps so not enitrely a noob.  not sure where i am going wrong.  any help would be appreciated.  thanks

@micko77 1st- did you fresh start inbetween trying pulse & beast? & are you certain you've entered your user name & registration & then selected build & it extracts/installs? The time on force closing/rebooting doesn't matter. If you are sure, you can try going to settings (gear symbol) from kodi home, top left, then interface settings, change skin to aon Knox. Force close & reboot. But I don't believe USA Beast has been updated recently anyway. If you want to try this above even if it works most addons may not be up right now until update on this build, instead we can install June 12 regular beast which you will like very much. I can post when USA is updated. Let me know & I'll provide instructions. 

Thanks Sarah

I followed everything correctly on fire stick but it keeps telling me to sign in at this website I signed in and made sure I verified but it will not verify me to get the builds....should I try a fresh start?

@Joshua Hamilton hi, no need to fresh start now. If you confirmed you are verified, click on beast wizard with menu button on remote (pic #1) A window will pop up, enter username & password there (pic #3) then the builds will pop up, select latest version by date (pic#4). Lmk if you need anything else (if it won't accept your username at this point register & verify again then enter in window. If you get blank screen back out once & select install now. See pics below

Thanks Sarah

@Sarah Barker Hi Sarah, can you please assist? I have tried 4 times to install the latest beast build today, I have followed all the instructions from the beast1.com server and everything has been smooth until the point of unplugging my device (i am using a fire tv box) when I relaunch Kodi, I see the icon that matches the build i chose and then it reverts to the native kodi home screen. All add ons are listed in the library but it hasn't overlayed the menu. Please advise? shelly.
