Your the greatest


You are very smart. Thank you for your help I followed your instructions and it worked


You made my day. I really appreciate how you explained to go around the problem.
After following your instructions, I finally installed the ad dons.
Thank you very much


THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I finally figured it out. For whatever reason the step-by-step above did not work for me and I followed them exactly so I went searching for alternate methods and one worked for me and here are the steps for anyone wondering: Follow the above steps to add the source (fusion.tvaddons etc…) and enable unknown sources. Then, go back to kodi home screen – Add-ons – browser (box) Install from zip – fusion – xbmc-repos – english – repository.xbmchub.1.0.7zip (wait a few seconds to show as enabled) Go to Install from repository – TvAddons.AG – Program add-ons – Indigo –… Read more »

I set up a Mibox a few weeks ago and it worked great using above instructions. Setting up a new box for the bedroom today, same as other Mibox, and when I click “” to Install from zip file I get the following error:

“Failed to Install add-on from zip file”

I can’t fugure out if it’s something I’m doing wrong (as I’m following the exact same instructions that worked before). Any recourse for this?


Open Exodus and I see little boxes no titles. After a couple of clicks with boxes only the networks show up. Shouldn’t I see the info and pictures not little boxes? Thanks


A shout out to me wouldn’t be so bad 🙂


Hey htmc maybe you should do a list of instructions for those of us who get the error message. Show them how i was able to get around it and still get tvaddons


after kodi 17 my provider listing is reloading every time I press the back button like on ZEM TV or on Exodus if I try to open some video and press back button the remaining provider list will reload instead of list being there like Kodi 16 do you know how to fix this?


Good work…haven’t used anything, but these instructions get you past the fail message.


Better yet if you click on config wizard at the top pf the menu in indigo it will give you all the addons from fusion


I was having the same problem as you guys. Idk if theres an easier way to do it right now. I kinda found it by mistake. But follow all instructions until it tells you to click begin here. Instead click kodi repos. Find the repository click that then go back and install from repository. Click on then go down to video add ons. Scroll down to indio download it. And from that ass on you have access too all your favorite fusion add ons . Just click on add on installer

margo gander

same here. FAIL


the message I am getting is failed to install add-on from zip file which is (


I am gathering that fusion addons zip file is down and it will up date due to some error. is this correct?


Is Indigo the same thing? That’s the zip file that the fusion.tvaddons link gave me


Stuck at addoninstaller. Nowhere does it give me the option to click this link. Help!!


I’ve followed your steps, but since my device has updated to Krypton, there are no addons in any of the folders. I can get to the first level, but when I go into one of the folders (eg. Featured Addons), it’s empty.
