Yoda is an addon for Kodi based on Exodus/Covenant. Just like its predecessor, Yoda gets its sources from several file hosting sites. It can synchronize with your Trakt account and can also be integrated with the library. Yoda supports premium accounts like Real Debrid, Premiumize and more.
In this tutorial we are going to install Yoda on Kodi 18.1 Leia using its official source, the Supremacy repository. Let’s begin.

If this is your first time installing add-ons you must set up Kodi to allow the installation of unofficial add-ons.
1. Open the System menu by pressing the cog icon on the top left corner of the Home Screen.
2. Select System settings.
3. Select the Add-ons tab and enable Show notifications and Unknown sources.
Enabling Unknown sources will allow installation of 3rd party addons that are not available in the official Kodi repository, we also recommend enabling Show notifications since most addons use them to display important information.

We’ll add a link to Supremacy source so we can download the repo using Kodi.
4. Go back to the System menu and select File Manager.
5. Press Add Source.
6. Enter http://2supremacy.uk/repo on the top box and supremacy on the bottom one. Press OK to continue.

If you need help using custom subtitle providers with Yoda please read How to enable subtitles on Kodi.
[Optional] Using Real Debrid with Yoda Kodi Addon
File hosters often limit file availability and bandwidth for free users, using premium accounts gives you unrestricted access to several hosters and can greatly improve the speed, quality and quantity of available sources.
In this example we’ll use Real Debrid, a popular service to get access to various file hosters for a very low price.
I. Select Tools on Yoda’s main menu.
II. Scroll down and press on URL Resolver Settings.
III. Select the Universal Resolver tab, scroll down to the Real Debrid section and change the Priority to 90. Press OK to save the priority.
IV. Re-open the ResolveURL configuration dialog, select the Universal Resolver tab again and scroll down to the Real Debrid section. Enable Cached torrents only.
Enabling the cached torrents only option will make sure you stream files that are already on Real Debrid’s cloud, otherwise if the torrent is not present, you’ll have to wait until it’s downloaded by Real Debrid before you can start streaming it, this might take several minutes.
Using torrents via Real Debrid will download files directly from their servers, it’ll not connect to the torrent network.
V. Now click on (Re)Authorize My Account.
VI. Copy the authorization code.
VII. Using your browser go to https://real-debrid.com/device and enter the authorization code. (You must be logged in with your real debrid account.)
Now that you authorized Real Debrid, Yoda, Exodus Redux and other addons using the ResolveURL dependency will get access to premium sources.
