The Elementum Kodi add-on is a torrent finding and searching engine. It doesn’t go on torrent websites for legal reasons. However, it calls specifically crafted add-ons (called providers) that are installed separately.
Elementum is an active and popular fork of the old Pulsar/Quasar add-ons which are no longer maintained. But Elementum seems to be very actively maintained.
If you’ve had enough of hoster and Debrid add-ons or just want to try something completely different, Elementum is it.
Kodi fans all over the internet are raving about Elementum and I can see why. Many are using it in conjunction with the wako app for a smooth Kodi watching experience.
This add-on does real BitTorrent streaming, not the cached torrents with debrid providers. This is the stuff that will get you a letter from your ISP!
So, if you use Elementum, be sure you’re using a VPN. You can get a discount with IPVanish (my favorite VPN) by clicking here and signing up.
Install Elementum From Their Website
Go to http://elementum.surge.sh/getting-started/platforms-page/ and download their Universal release.
Save it to a folder where you can find it from the Kodi file browser.
Go to Settings > Add-ons > Install zip from file source
Browse to that downloaded file and select it to install.
No Regular Repo for Elementum? What About Updates?
I thought it was weird too.
I really wanted to use a normal repo to install it which is why I was pointing people to the Gaia repo before. Unfortunately, they did not keep their repo up to date. So, now we’re getting it from the source, Elgatito on GitHub.
Anyway, this guy developed a way for the add-on itself to install its own Kodi repository for it to get its updates from. So, updates are all handled.
