  • Encore is Here

This build is hugely popular and many consider it to be the best Kodi build. I don't use builds so I don't really have any opinions on which are good and bad. It is all totally subjective.
The Beast build can now be installed via an APK on Android devices. You can download the APK from here. You will still need to use the first steps below for registering and creating an account for installing the build.

How to Install The Beast Kodi
It is best to install this build on a clean install of Kodi. This guide does not use a clean install as this is a test machine and it will not matter to me if it doesn't install properly.

  • You must first register here. When the page opens add a username, email address & password and then click Register

  • After the registration notification appears select log in

  • Enter the email & password you used in the first step and click Log in

  • In the next screen you should see your username and email. If they are correct click on Verify Here

  • If you get the following message saying your address has now been verified you can now move on to installing the build

  • Open Kodi
  • Select SYSTEM > File Manager

  • Select Add Source

  • Select None

  • Highlight the box underneath Enter a name for this media Source, type beast & Select OK

  • Go back to your Home Screen
  • Select SYSTEM

  • Select Add-Ons

  • Select Install from zip file

  • Go back to your Home Screen
  • Select PROGRAMS

  • Highlight - DO NOT SELECT - The Beast Wizard

  • Open the Context Menu (C on your keyboard, right click with a mouse, long press on touch screen devices or Menu button on your remote) and select Add-on settings

  • Add the Email and Password you created at the beginning of the guide and select OK

  • Select The Beast Wizard

  • Select The Beast

  • The Beast will now start to download
