      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.

cant get krypton 17.3 on firestick

23 posts in this topic

I have a relatively new fire stick and have been running Jarvis 16.1 on it but my problem is I cannot update to a newer version.
I have tried 17.0, 17.2 & 17.3. I always uninstall 16.1 first to do a fresh install.
I loads but will not go beyond the 'first run'....it goes blank after a few seconds. Then it does not load at all, but if I clear cache & data, once again it will load but again not past 'first run'

I have 3.4 gb of 5.57gb
operating system 5.2.4.1 version 5.7.3 -17

I have 2 fire sticks, bought around 4 months apart and have no problem with installing 17.3 on that one

I have also tried various methods to install - adblink, downloader & ES file explorer

Is anyone else had the same issue, can any one suggest anything

Hi @jade¬†I have a few questions for you. When exactly did you try installing? Like today, yesterday etc? Also, don't make any changes to your working stick right now. There are some things I will explain when I hear back from you, what are you using to install? Downloader or es file explorer? Or have you tried both? Also for future reference, you don't need to uninstall kodi at all to update kodi version, you just go to downloader, go to kodi.tv/downloads chose ‚ě°ÔłŹ arm7a 32 bit under resources (not under nightly) chose update instead of new. That's it. I can explain better but for now, get back to me & we will get you sorted out‚ėļÔłŹ (Also, were you choosing arm7a 32 bit instead of 64bit or x86)?

thanks! Sarah

@jade¬†1st things 1st you will need to make more room on your stick. That may be the problem. Go to settings, applications, manage installed applications, and remove anything you aren't using. Then let me know what space you have after as well. ‚ėļÔłŹ

Hi Sarah

To answer you question:

Currently I have  3.4 gb of 5.57gb

I have tried downloader, ES File Explorer & adblink

I definitely choose 32 bit not 64 bit

Last time I tried was yesterday

Currently I don't have it installed as when it didn't work I uninstalled it.  I know if I go back to Jarvis 16.1 it will install without any issues and load fine.  Actually it does install but doesn't get beyond 'first run' - as stated if I clear cache & data in Kodi, it will load but not past first run, once it fails at first run it won't load at all until I again clear Cache & data

I was always told it is better to a fresh install as opposed to install the new version over the top of the old.  So I back up, uninstall old, install new & restore.

On the download page I cannot see where it says 'choose update'

 

Regards

Jade

Just removed a couple of small apps I am not using but not much different, now have 3.73gb of 5,57gb available

hi @jade

thanks for providing the info! 2 other questions, when did you last update your other firestck? & what country do you live in? 3.73 gb should be fine. Go into settings, applications, managed installed applications and make sure Kodi isn't there. Then unplug your fire stick from the wall or tv and plug back in, & see video I posted below :) 

As for updating Kodi, a fresh start only pertains to a build, not completely uninstalling kodi to update the version, these are 2 different things. You are correct though, it is always recommended to fresh start (clear data) when installing a new build. You just dont have to uninstall kodi to update. when you select the arm to install, a window pops up, top left there is a NEW tab and Update tab, I will get a picture shortly and post for you to see what I mean.

Here is my favorite method to fresh start: (for firestick you just go to settings, applications, managed installed applications, Kodi, clear data. thats it! When you open kodi again it will show "first run". Video reflects the same for all devices too :)

Since you have already removed Kodi, I know you've already tried this. but I recommend following this video one more time to try installing again. If this doesn't work, let me know, you can go back to 16.1 if you'd like (security flaw only pertains to 17+), or we can try a kodi fork.

let me know how it goes, we will get you sorted, promise!

Hi Sarah

Unplugged fire stick & plugged back in. Then followed the tutorial for the downloader method and got exactly the same, installs but goes to blank screen after first run.

I forgot to say I tried spmc a while back & that was also unsuccessful,  Jarvis 16.1 loads without issue, so frustrating.  These 2 fire sticks were only bought a couple of months apart & the other one has no issue with 17.3

thanks for you help

@jade¬†hi, I'm so sorry, thanks for tagging me! ūüĎŹ

I know you said you bought them within a few months of one another, did you buy brand new from a store or from someone who loaded kodi on it for you initially?

wondered if i ought to re-set fire stick back to factory settings & start again, but didnt want to have to re-install all my apps again really

@jade I was going to recommend doing a factory reset next. The problem you are describing doesn't sound like a kodi problem, per say, especially since you said it's happening with spmc too. 

1 more thing before you reset, can you go to settings on fire tv: settings, device, developer options, and make sure adb debugging and apps from unknown sources are turned on (turn on all 3 USB debugging to if you like) ‚¨áÔłŹ See below.¬†

Then go back to kodi, open it & see. If you want to take a short video for me when you open if it's giving you the same trouble that may help me. Also this may sound silly but try unplugging your device from power & plug back in (can't recall if I mentioned this already)

After this step we can figure out resetting etc. All of your apps will be linked to your Amazon account so even though you reset, it won't be much trouble getting them back, your just re sync your Amazon account. 

Ill wait to hear from you‚ėļÔłŹ

Hi @jade did you change the settings on your fire stick as pictured above? 

To attach video, just select click to choose files below ‚¨áÔłŹ Or insert other media. Both ways will let you. Thanks!¬†

Just to update you, I installed the fork Nodi not Kodi and got the exact same issue replicated.....it installs but goes no further than 1st run, then doesn't load any more until I clear data, then loads but not past 1st run.....I'm am totally bewildered, not tried installing Jarvis 16.1 recently but last time I did it loaded & worked !!

Hi @jade did you ever do factory reset? 

Also, where do you live, what country what isp? Do you have a vpn? There are changes you can make to router settings that might help, maybe your isp made a change since you installed last... you could try side loading with apps2fire or remote share with pc...

other than all the above¬†I'm thinking stick is defective. If it's only a few months old, contact Amazon. Just say you are downloading apps and sidelong apps that won't open (I wouldn't give them too much info on kodi) but 1st let me know about 1st questions ūü§ě

Yes I did a full re-set of the fire stick, completely re-registering & re-entering wifi settings.  I am currently in Cyprus, but I also use it in the UK as well & have same problem in both places. I do not use a vpn as in a regular monthly payment, but I have on occasions used the free Hola vpn.    I side load using adbfire & have also use ES File explorer & downloader.

I have installed Jarvis 16'1 (after trying Nodi not Kodi which produced the same result ) and Jarvis works.  Can't comment on how good or bad the functionality of the Kodi Jarvis is working at present because as you know many of the addons have gone down since fusion / tvaddons.ag has gone offline, so really my fresh install of Jarvis only has Genesis Reborn
