      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.

17.3 not doing anything

16 posts in this topic

I downloaded 17.3 from 16.1 tonight. What ever option I choose in the beast, I just get the spinning beast head and red circle. Round and round and round and round forever. I get all the menus but no channels come up. When I check the settings it says my internet is busy. I have checked the internet is working, and the settings on my tv are connected to the internet (as I just checked YouTube). For some reason the beast cannot connect. Does anyone know why? Could the server be down due to high traffic thanks to the essential security upgrade? Any help appreciated.

@Miximallian¬†hi! What device are you using? I believe the issue is you went from 16.1 to 17.3 & need to install beast 17.3. Either way‚ėļÔłŹ ‚¨áÔłŹ

We should do a fresh start & install beast again. Follow this to do so, quick & easy. Please follow the fresh start quick video below the link here, then click link for latest beast install instructions (having trouble switching the order postedūü§¶ūüŹľ‚Äć‚ôÄÔłŹūüėā) due to addons finding new homes there will be a new update with all addons in a few days as well, so keep an eye out. If you need assistance or an install video please let me know! Thanks! Sarah

I have had Kodi 17.3 and the Beast new June 7th  soft update running for a few days now and it has been working satisfactory but this evening when I went into Kodi it is as Miximallian says, it does nothing other than the spinning head and red circle. It doesn't seem to make any difference what you go to all you get is the spinning head and red circle but nothing comes up. I am using my HP Pavillion laptop with Windows 10.

Sorry, never mind it has started working again. Don't know what it was but I closed and re-opened Kodi and it started working. My bad.

Hi @LHuck glad it's resolved. Anytime this sort of thing happens I recommend the following:

1) clear cache, purge packages & thumbnails

2) force close kodi

3) restart device or simply unplug & plug back in

also remember to clear cache, purge packages at least 1-2 times a week! This is very important! You can do it daily if you like, but once a week is crucial. ‚ėļÔłŹ

Thanks! Sarah

Hi guys, my version did start working after I had forced kodi to close a couple of times. Strange. 

I don't know if it's the beast, the kodi, or links are just down but some things are hit and miss. Uktvturks is not working at all. Zen is hit and miss. Just 2 examples from top of my head. 

It might just be a case that the tv companies / government / ISP's are starting to get cute with us all???

Sorry @Sarah Barker I forgot to say my device is a Sony smart Android tv. So I download kodi straight onto my tv from the google play store. Unfortunately the google play store now only makes the latest kodi version available to download. I have 16.1 on a memory stick which i can always fall back onto.

@Miximallian¬†actually it's not strange at all that it worked after you force closed, you really need to reboot after force closing. If google play store has the latest version 17.3, I don't think¬†you can go back to 16.1 in the play store through memory stick on tv, & even if you did you would have to wipe data & add new repositories‚¨áÔłŹ

Also, when you install kodi from the playstore, no 3rd party addons come with it. Kodi does not provide any content. Addons like U.K. Turk and numerous others aren't working for you because the versions of their addons (called repositories, most likely from the wizard/build you used to install the 3rd party addons) they've all changed since Dish Network sued zemtv & tv addons May 30, & tva removed most 3rd party addons of their library. 

Zen is gone & has been replaced by Elysium, new repo, new name. 

You need to fresh start, and install the correct repositories. A build is the best way to do that. If you don't know which you have, open your kodi and take a picture and post here, I can tell you how to proceed. It has nothing to do with kodi Krypton 17 (or jarvis) & everything to do with all changed lately 

Thanks, Sarah

All too frequently now I am getting the continuous spinning head. The system summary info says internet is busy, cpu temp busy, etc etc, everything giving any info about my system is 'busy'! @Sarah Barker , forcing kodi to close doesn't always fix the problem. Why is it doing this? @LHuck was getting this earlier in the thread but i can read of no other related issues. 

I have kodi 17.3 krypton June 20th update.

I rolled back to 16.1 last week. It's a little better. No spinning heads!! Tonight, however, many links aren't working. The last few days Elysium won't work, and Exodus is now playing up tonight. Maybe this is the cat and mouse scenario we'll have to get used to from now on. ūüėě

Hi @Miximallian,

We just put a brand new beast build in our wizard called The Beast Shield, you see this at the very top of our forum in announcements. I can say everything is working nicely so maybe try this latest release buddy and hopefully it will sort out your problems m8.

@Miximallian therelast month or 2 there have been countless changes in the community regarding addons etc. The Beast 16.1 was updated recently but without looking it up I can't recall the last update date, I'm pretty sure more changes came out since it's last update. 

Before you reverted to 16.1, when did you update last? If you can't recall the date, a time frame might help. I hadn't had time to check the latest Beast 17.3 update (original beast) but several prior updates were very large in size & I believe that was the reason for the long loading times. On a side note- do you clear your cache, thumbnails & purge packages at least once a week? Doing so is extremely important, not doing this can & will cause kodi to be slow, buffer & crash. You can do it as often as you'd like, but it should be fine once a week minimum. Please try this & then restart your device or unplug for 5 seconds & plug back in. Let me know all of the above & we can take it from there. Thanks! Sarah

@Sarah Barker I was using the June 20th beast build update on 17.3. After reading one of you earlier posts, I started to delete cache and thumbnails, and purge packets every other day, to no real effect on the spinning head issue, which is why I went back to the latest 16.1 build. 

As some addons are hit and miss with 16.1 I will give the Beast Shield a go. Worst case scenario is I'll put 16.1 back on. 

Out of interest, if an addon isn't working, I take it that it won't work regardless of what build I have on? If the link is dead, it's dead, right???

Correct Buddy

I can honestly say the new BEAST SHIELD is totally amazing. It only has 5 addons but this is all you will ever need apart if you have an IPTV subscription then you can manually add your IPTV providers addon. I have run the SHIELD not for just over a day and hit it hard and found it to be totally amazing and flawless. Remember it is for KODI 17.3 mind you. Trust me try it you be blown over buddy

Take care and have a great day
