Kodi Addons Not Working? – Try This
Good Morning Insomniacs,
We are slowly, but surely, getting through all of the step by step guides, and tutorials for Users of Insomniacs Wizard, and for general Kodi Users too.
With Kodi, Sometimes issues arise, which can be extremely frustrating for Users. One of them is when no Addons will load, or do so very slowly. This can be sue to many reasons, but a Build does not affect how Addons work. If your experiencing the issue of Addons not opening, then this will happen no matter what Build you use, or even if you don’t use one at all.
We would strongly recommend the Insomniacs Wizard to all Kodi Users, whether your a fan of Builds or not. There is lots of benefits with using the Insomniacs Wizard, not only for all of the maintenance features is has, but also all the other tweaks, and features it has. For example: The APK-Installer, Addon Installer, Anti-Buffer feature, Cache/Thumbs/Packages cleaner, this is just very few of the great features this Wizard has.
Anyway, back to the topic. If you are experiencing the issues of Addons not opening, then you can use the Insomniacs Wizard – ‘Force Update’ All Addons, aswel as the Kodi 17 Fix, if using Kodi 17.
What to do, if Add-Ons are loading extremely slowly:
If Addons are really laggy, or slow to load, then there is a very simple, easy solution to this. There is many kind of Addons, when Addons are slow to load, it’s most likely to be due to it being a Jen Add-On. And simply, disabling the Metadata, in the Addon settings will solve this issue, and will then sort the slow loading. To sort this issue, simply, Click here, to read the full step by step guide, on how to disable Metadata on Jen Add-Ons.
How to fix Add-Ons not opening or working at all:
Sometimes, Users have the issue of Addons not loading at all. If it is one Add-On, or even a few, it could just be something as simple, as that Add-On discontinuing, or the Source/Repo may well of changed, or could just be undergoing some maintenance. From time to time, this happens, and is a necessity, in order to keep that Addon functioning well. If your a User of the Insomniacs Builds, then do not worry about this, as any Add-Ons which do discontinue, or change, we always keep on top of this via the Build updates function. So maybe try updating your Build, to get the latest Build version. Here is a full guide on how to update your Build. (Click-Me)
If all Add-Ons won’t load or open, at all, then this could be due to many reasons, but as mentioned at the beginning of this post, if all Add-Ons won’t load, then it isn’t down to the Build your using. And is likely to be due to an issue on your end. Before you try the fix below, please try these few steps first:
- Turn your Modem off for a moment, then back on.
- Click on the ‘Total Cleanup’ (Cleanup-Build) – Under Wizard-Hub.
- Check that your Kodi hasn’t Auto-Updated to a different version, making it incompatible for the Build your using.
- If using Kodi 17 – Then click the ‘Kodi 17 Fix’ which is in the Maintenance section of the Insomniacs-Wizard
If the above steps don’t work, then no need to worry, as the great thing is, this can be fixed using the Insomniacs Wizard ‘Force Update all Addons’ function
There is 2 ways of using the ‘Force Update all Add-Ons’ function of the Wizard. If you are a User of the Insomniacs Builds, then you can simply, just click ‘Update Addons’ under the Wizard-Hub. Below is the quick step by step guide on how to do this:
Go to the Wizard-Hub section of the Build. And in the Sub-Menu (Under Wizard-Hub) you will see ‘Update Addons’ (As shown below)
Once you have clicked the ‘Update-Addons‘ option, you will then see the notification at the top of the screen, which says ‘Forcing Add-On Updates‘ (As Shown Below)
You will then see multiple notifications, as all your Add-Ons start to update. (As Shown Below)
And Your done!….
Please allow a few minutes for all of your Add-Ons to update. There is quite a lot of Addons, Modules, Scripts etc, which will now all update. Using this function, on the Insomninacs – Wizard basically force updates all Add-Ons, and sets the defaults.
Once the updates have finished, then click the ‘Cleanup Build’ Under the Wizard-Hub, then restart your Kodi or Insomniacs Apk….
