In this comprehensive guide, I will show you how to install the Alienware Kodi build. Alienware is compatible with Kodi 19 Matrix. This installation method will work on all Kodi-supported devices, including Amazon Fire TV Stick variants, NVIDIA SHIELD, Android TV Boxes, PC, Mac, tablets, and smartphones.
Installing a Kodi build is a great way to customize and tweak your Kodi app in terms of its appearance, addons, content library, settings, and more. Choosing the right build can make your streaming experience quicker, smoother, and better. Currently, there are loads of Kodi builds available across the web, and a noteworthy one is the Alienware Kodi build.

What is the Alienware Kodi Build?
The Alienware build is one of the few lightweight builds compatible with the Kodi 19 Matrix. The Alienware build belongs to the cMaN repository, which hosts other builds like Fallout and Element.
The build is only 124 MB, which means it is less likely to bog down low-memory devices like FireStick and Chromecast. It’s easy to install, and I’ll show you exactly how after touching on some important details.
Is the Alienware Kodi Build Safe and Legal?
Questions like these naturally arise because the Alienware build is not part of the official Kodi repository, meaning Kodi doesn’t endorse its use.
Unfortunately, FireStickTricks.com does not verify the legality or security of third-party Kodi builds like Alienware. Most Kodi builds come with pre-installed addons, and those addons usually scrape popular websites for links to the websites’ content.
Attention, Kodi Users!
Kodi Addons and builds offer unlimited streaming content, but could also get you into legal trouble if caught streaming free movies, TV shows, or sports. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. Kodi users are strongly advised to always connect a VPN while streaming online. A good Kodi VPN hides your identity, bypasses government surveillance, geo-blocked content, and ISP throttling (which also helps in buffer-free streaming).
I personally use ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon FireStick. You get 3-months free and save 49% on its annual plans. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you can always ask for a refund.
How to Install the Alienware Kodi Build
Alienware is a third-party build, making the installation process a bit more complex. But don’t worry, I laid it out step by step below. I divided the installation into three parts to help you keep track as you follow along.
Part 1: Enabling Unknown Sources
Since the Alienware build comes from a third-party source, we need to make a change in our Kodi settings.
1. Launch the Kodi app.
2. Go to settings by clicking the gear icon on the home screen.
3. Open System.
4. Go to the Add-ons tab in the left-hand menu.
5. Select Unknown sources in the right section of the same window.
6. When you see the warning message, click Yes to proceed.
7. Make sure the toggle for Unknown sources is switched to the right, meaning it’s enabled.
Part 2: Adding cMaN’s Wizard Repository
We can now get started with the installation process. We have to install the repository containing the Alienware build in order to install the build.
1. From the Kodi main screen, go to the settings menu again.
2. Click the File manager option on the top left.
3. Click Add source. You may click it on the left or the right.
4. Click where it says <None>.
5. Type http://cmanbuilds.com/repo and double-check that you’ve entered it exactly as shown. Click OK.
Note: FireStickTricks.com does not host or distribute this repository. It is hosted on an external, unaffiliated site.
6. Back on the Add file source window, select the text box under Enter a name for this media source. Type the name cman and click OK.
7. Return to the settings menu by pressing the back button on your device.
8. Click on the Add-ons tile.
9. Click Install from zip file.
10. Find and select cman.

13. Now click Install from repository on your current screen.
14. Here, you will find cMaN’s Wizard Repository that you just installed. Select it.
15. Click Program add-ons on the following window.
16. Click cMaN Wizard 19.
17. Click on the Install button in the bottom right. Click OK when you’re prompted to install other necessary addons.
18. Give it a few seconds. When it’s finished, you’ll see the notification cMaN Wizard 19 Add-on installed and you’ll be taken to the screen shown below. Click Continue or just press your back button.
19. If you want to go straight to the addon’s main menu, you can click Cman Builds on the next window. Otherwise, I’m about to show you how to access the addon from your Kodi home screen.
Part 3: Installing the Alienware Kodi Build
You have successfully installed the cMaN Wizard 19 Kodi addon. Now we can download the Alienware build through it.

3. Click on (cMaN Wizard) Builds near the top.
4. Find and select [19.0] Alienware 19 by Red 79 (v1.4).
Note: Don’t worry if the very last number is different for you. It may increase over time as updates for the Alienware build are released.
5. Click the last option, (cMaN Wizard) Install.
6. Click Yes, Install.
7. Choose Fresh Install to reset Kodi before installing the build.
8. Wait for the build to download and install. When it’s done, you’ll be prompted to close Kodi. Click OK.
Congratulations, you successfully installed the Alienware Kodi build!
Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons or Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, live TV, and Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Thankfully, there is a foolproof way to keep all your streaming activities hidden from your ISP and the Government. All you need is a good VPN for Kodi. A VPN will mask your original IP which is and will help you bypass Online Surveillance, ISP throttling, and content geo-restrictions.
I personally use and recommend ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all kinds of streaming apps and devices.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.

Step 1: Get the ExpressVPN subscription HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it free for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your streaming device. If you are using a FireStick, I have given the exact steps starting with Step 4 below.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
The following are the steps to install Kodi VPN on your Fire TV devices. If you have other streaming devices, follow Step 1-3 above.
Step 4: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE (if not subscribed already).
Step 5: Go to Fire TV Stick home screen. Click Find followed by Search option (see image below).
Step 6: Type Expressvpn in the search bar and select when it shows up.
Step 7: Click Download.

Alienware features various categories at the bottom of the home screen:
