Is your Kodi having weird issues?  Do you feel like you need to reset Kodi back to a blank slate?

I’ll show you how to wipe Kodi to give you a clean Kodi in a “factory default” state.

How To Clear Kodi and Start Over Using Indigo:

To completely reset Kodi, clearing all add-ons and settings, just install the Indigo add-on and use the Factory Reset feature.

  • Go to Settings > File Manager
  • Add a source.
    • Enter the url…
    • Give it the name, Fusion
  • Go to Settings > Add-ons > Install from zip file
  • Select Fusion (or whatever you called it in the file manager)
  • Select begin-here >
  • Be patient because this takes a while to install in the background.  Wait for the notification that the add-on is installed
  • Go back to the home screen > Add-ons > Indigo
  • Select Factory Restore
  • You’ll have to confirm the prompt if you’re sure you want to proceed
  • After it’s done, exit Kodi and then reopen it.  It should be just like a fresh install of Kodi!

  1. Hi. Have just upgraded a friends Kodi to the latest version. All went well until I tried to download Exodus. Went through the process ok – everything seemed to be fine until at the very end a message popped up saying there was no network connection. There was a connection as everything else worked and, indeed, in settings it said so!!! Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you

    1. That sounds very strange. Did it say that after you installed Exodus and started using it? Or did is say that as you were trying to install Exodus? Are you using the Exodus repo from

  2. This also no longer works .long gone.
