This just in… the Smash repo has gone down. If you’re following any of my tutorials on installing alternative Kodi repos, installing Covenant, or setting up the ultimate Kodi experience, then you are probably getting an error about not being able to connect.
As of around 3:30 PM MST on Friday 9/22, the repo and domain went offline. Shortly after, Smash tweeted the following…
(That tweet was later deleted)
I’m not exactly sure what’s going on. It sounds like alpha, the person behind the alpha repository reported something and got the server taken down. I’m not sure if that means alpha and smash are on the same server, or what. That’s what it sounds like.
But, have no fear, it sounds like Smash is working on bringing it back up and hopes to have it up later today or tomorrow…
…or maybe another day or 2…
Now as of Monday evening, Smash tweeted that he was unable to get it back up on the old domain, but it will be on a new domain.
Smash is now back up at a new domain… http://mediarepos.org/kodistuff/
Update: Smash is done. Use this now…

Will you be emailing a notification when it is back up and running? Please!
I will likely be updating this post and sending out a push notification when it’s back up. Make sure you’re subscribed to my notifications by clicking the red bell icon in the bottom right corner and clicking “Allow”.
Unable to install the colossus repo from the add on repo. I clicked install and nothing happens. Any ideas?
Sometimes you might not notice the little notification that tells you that it’s installed. Now, you go back to the Add-on Browser, and go to Install from Repository and you should see Colossus there.
It’s not allowing me to add smash. It just says network not connected….even with the new URL
Check to make sure there’s no typo. Also, make sure you also enter the http:// at the beginning.
Have you confirmed that the box has a working internet connection? If you type that URL in a browser (or click here http://mediarepos.org/kodistuff ), does it work for you? You should see a simple directory listing.
We have been streaming movies today through it so that would mean there is a working internet connection right? (Sorry fairly new to this). Or is there a better way to test it? I do get a simple directory listing when I click the link from my phone. Thank you for taking the time to help me with this!
If you get the directory listing on your phone and you’re streaming movies on the Fire Stick, then you don’t have any internet connectivity issues.
This is for the smash wizard right ..
Right… it’s the file source that has Smash Wizard, Smash Repo, Colossus Repo, etc.
Is everything up and running I cant get .org to work anymore.
Disregarding, like you asked.

You are right. The Colossus repo has been shut down. I’ve updated the post.
Exodus still works fine for me.
Really, I had a different experience, but glad it’s working for you.
