In this article, I will guide you on how to install Carbonik 20 Build on Kodi. The steps I will demonstrate here will be the same for all devices, including FireSticks, Linux Systems, Smartphones, Computers, and others. Later in the article, I will also cover an overview of the build as well as the features it comes with.
What is Carbonik 20 Kodi Build?
Carbonik 20 Build is an unofficial build you can install on Kodi. It gives you access to many of your favorite programs and movies all in one place. The CMan Repository offers the build and it comes with a user-friendly interface.
You can find a lot of content with the build, like Movies, TV Shows, Music, Live TV, Sports, and much more. It derives content from popular addons, such as Mega IPTV, Jason IPTV, LNTv, The Loop TV, and RBTv, to name a few.
The Build is compatible with Real-Debrid, and I will demonstrate how to integrate it with the build by the end of this article.
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 to 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.
Is Carbonik 20 Kodi Build Safe and Legal?
I took a virus scan test (on VirusTotal’s official website) of the repository link and found nothing malicious. This gives some indications about the safety of the source repository. However, since Carbonik 20 is a third-party build, there is no guarantee as far as safety and legality are concerned.
Unfortunately, I do not have the tools to discover the legality of the build. All I can recommend is that if you use such a third-party build, you should keep your device protected and anonymous by using a trusted VPN service. A good VPN like ExpressVPN takes care of possible legal troubles.

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.
So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here's how to get VPN protection in 3 simple steps.
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.
Step 8: Open the ExpressVPN app and Sign in using the email ID and password that you created while buying the ExpressVPN subscription.
Step 9: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That’s all. Your FireStick is now secured with the fastest VPN.

The content with the build is immense and more than enough to keep you busy. You can explore the internal menu once you start exploring the build.
Steps to Integrate Real-Debrid into Carbonik 20 Kodi Build
