How to Install the new updated Wizard & Builds
Good Evening Insomniacs.
As most people are aware, we have been working for a number of weeks on a brand new Wizard. Which offers our Users many more features than our old Wizard did.
We decided, that if we was going to change the Wizard, then we might aswel so all out, and totally rebuild the Builds, and also make a brand new Repo.
I will make a seperate post, about what the new Wizard offers, and the great benefits Users will now have by using it. But in this post, I will show Users how to Install the new Wizard, and the Insomniacs Build. For this guide only, i am using the ‘Passion Led Us Here’ Build. But the same applies for any of the Insomniacs Builds.
Once you have installed the new Repo/Wizard/ then any future updates with the scripts, Wizard, or Repo will automatically update to your Build. Any Users will be notified when a Build is updated. With the option to ‘Update’ or ‘Remind you later’.
Both the ‘Passion Led Us Here’ Build, and the ‘Black & Gold’ Build, have undergone huge updates. They have both been totally stripped back, and rebuilt. And new Main menu’s have been applied, with flash menu. Which is really appealing on the eye. Both Builds have also been updated With all the latest, and best working Add-Ons.
With Insomniacs releasing a brand new Repository, Wizard, and new look Builds, the best option for any User would be to totally wipe your Kodi. To do this simpy, go to your device App settings, find Kodi, and then clear data. Doing this will totally wipe your current Build, ready for the new Install.
Below is a step by step video by Dr Venture. Check it out, and check out he’s other vids.
