How to to install Boom Build on Kodi
I will now walk you through the detailed installation procedure. There are several steps involved. Make sure to follow each step in the correct order. Here’s a quick summary of what we’re going to do in the same order as indicated below:
- Allow unknown sources
- Add it Boom Build the source URL to Kodi
- to install Boom Warehouse
- to install Boom Community Wizard
- to install Boom Build from the wizard
Let’s get started now. Follow these steps:
Steps 1 through 5 are for enabling unknown sources. This option must be enabled to install third-party builds such as Book Kodi Build. It is disabled by default.
# 1 Go to the Kodi Settings by clicking the gear / gear icon. You’ll find this icon at the top left of the Kodi home-screen
# 2 In the Kodi settings, click System settings
# 3 Click Add-ons on the next window
# 4 In the same window, enable the option Unknown sources
# 5 Click Yes to keep this option enabled. You can ignore the warning message if Boom Kodi build is safe. I personally tested it
# 6 Now press back button once to return to Kodi settings (or click the gear icon on the home-screen)
You now add it Boom Build the resource on Kodi in the following steps
# 7 Click File manager
# 8 Click Add source if you see this window (scroll down if you don’t see this option)
# 9 Click
# 10 Type the following path / link in the empty field on the next screen: http://boomkodi.com/repo
This is an important step, so make sure to type the path carefully
# 11 Now enter the name in the field that says Enter a name for this media source. You can enter any name that you want to identify the source with. You need to click on this name later.
I mention this source Boom
Click OK when your screen looks like what you see in this picture.
This is how you do it Boom Build a resource for Kodi. In the following steps, install it Boom Warehouse
# 12 Return to the homescreen of Kodi and click Add-ons in the menu on the left sidebar
# 13 Then click repository.boom-1.2.zip
Note: If the version number of the file has changed, don’t worry. It will still install the repository
# 14 Boom repository will now be installed. Wait for the notification to be read Boom Repository Add-on installed
The Boom Repository is now installed on Kodi. We go to the next part where we install Boom Wizard.
# 15 Click Install from repository> Boom Warehouse
# 16 Open Program add-ons
# 17 Click Boom Community Wizard
# 18 Click to install button (bottom right)
# 19 Wait until you see it Boom Community Wizard Add-on installed message at the top right of the window
With this you have the Boom Add-on for Community Wizard. Now we will cover the last part where we install the build of this wizard
# 20 A popup will appear with the following message. Simply press the back button on your remote or click the back Button on the popup to get rid of this message
# 21 When you see this popup, click OK (next to Remind Later button, but not visible)
# 22 Go to the Kodi homescreen and go to Add-ons> Program Add-ons. Click on the Boom Community Wizard icon
# 23 Click Boom Community Wizard builds menu option on the next screen
# 24 There are 6 builds as I write this guide. You can install any build you want. I’m picking Sky Vader LITE built by Gerwyn
# 25 Click NO when you see the following prompt.
Even though I recommend Fresh Start for other builds, in this case the build wouldn’t install when I clicked YES. Hope the developers fix this problem soon.
# 26 Wait while the Boom Wizard downloads and installs the build. You will see the progress on the screen. This may take a few minutes depending on the internet speed and device platform.
# 27 When the build is finally installed, the following prompt should appear. Kodi must be force closed for the build to take effect. So click OK
# 28 Click now Force close BMC to exit the Kodi application
You got it Boom Build on Kodi.
Inquisitive Boom Kodi Build
Now let’s take a quick look at the build. Restart the Kodi application to get it Boom To build. If this is the first time, let the build complete the updates. It will take a few minutes but will keep the build up to date.
This is the homescreen of the build:
As you can see, the build interface is not that much different from the other builds in terms of layout. It has its own unique skin, of course.
The menu items are arranged in a bar in which you can navigate from left to right or vice versa. The submenu bar is aligned below the menu bar. The submenu shows the options based on the item highlighted in the menu.
The add-ons related to the selected menu or sub-menu item are displayed at the bottom of the screen.
The menu bar features the following options:
- TV shows
- Live TV
- Kids Zone
Now let me take you to the Video Addons section.
This Book Kodi build has a number of popular names like Neptune Rising, Placenta, Genesis Reborn, Uranus, SportsDevil, and more. However, some of these add-ons are only popular because they have been around for a while. Surprisingly, the build doesn’t feature some newer add-ons.
Nevertheless, there are plenty of options to stream all types of video content like movies, shows, live TV, sports etc.
i installed Boom Build on FireStick and computer. It worked well on both. It initially crashed a few times during the time you start the build for the first time and it is running addon updates. However, once the add-ons were updated, things went smoothly.
I have also encountered a few error messages during installation. I kept ignoring those messages. I started to believe the build would not install. But in the end it happened.
Boom is a new Kodi build and looks like it is still in the development phase. Some good and popular add-ons are missing. While you can install them separately, I think they should be part of the package.
Construction looks very promising. That’s why I’m making it part of our Best Kodi Builds list. I’ll be watching it for a few weeks and see if it gets even better. You can give this build a try or explore our list to try other builds.
