How long does it take to install? I am at step 9, but it seems to be frozen, the time has been the same for over 20 minutes.


FilmKodi repo is not very powerful and it gets crowded sometimes, it shouldn’t take more than 3 or 4 minutes. Probably your download timed out, check your internet connection just to be sure and try to install again.

Thank you. Installation was a breeze. Clear and precise instructions were very easy to follow


I get failed to install a dependency. I am not sure if that is on my end or not.
