Steps to Install Doomzday Builds on Kodi
Please note that it could take 4-5 minutes to install Doomzday Kodi builds. The process has been broken down into the following three parts for easier understanding:
Part 1: Enabling the Unknown Sources
Part 2: Installing DoomzDay Wizard
Part 3: Installing DoomzDay Kodi builds
We will now cover each part separately.
Part 1: Enabling the Unknown Sources
Unknown Sources is a security setting, which is kept disabled by default. This prevents any malicious source from installing any harmful plugin on Kodi. However, that also stops the installation of the safe third-party builds like DoomzDay builds. This can be easily taken care of. Follow these steps:
1- Go to the Kodi Settings
You will find the option on the home screen. Just click the cog icon that you see on the upper left
2- Go to System if you use Kodi 18 Leia
Click System Settings if you have Kodi 17.6
3- Click the option Add-ons on the left sidebar menu
4- Now click Unknown Sources and turn it ON
5- When you are warned, dismiss the following prompt by clicking Yes
Note: You may disable Unknown Sources again after installing the Doomzday Kodi build
Part 2: Install the DoomzDay Wizard
DoomzDay Wizard is a utility tool for Kodi, which also hosts the build menu. To install DoomzDay builds, we must first install this Wizard. Here are the steps:
1- From within the Kodi Settings, click File manager
Settings can be accessed by clicking the cog icon on the home screen
2- Now we will open the option Add source
3- In the ‘Enter the Paths…’ section, click <None>
4- You should now see a window with an onscreen keypad. Type the following URL: https://doomzdayteam.github.io/doomzday
Note: This URL is case sensitive
5- Now name this media source you just added. I am going with the default Doomzday it automatically populates. But, you can change it to another name you wish to identify the source with
6- Go back to the Kodi Settings by pressing the back button. Or, go back to the home screen and click Settings again.
Note: If you use Kodi 17.6, click Add-ons on the home screen followed by the open-box icon
7- Choose Install from zip file
8- Now open the source name you typed in earlier. For me it was Doomzday
9- You must now see the zip file for the Doomzday repository (repository.doomzday-x.x.x.zip). Click it
10- Wait for this notification
11- Click Install from repository
12- Click Doomzday Repo
13. Click Program add-ons
14- Open Doomzday Wizard
15- Click Install
16- Click OK
17- Wait for this notification
18- Click Continue when this prompt is displayed
19- You may choose to click Build Menu when this dialogue box is displayed and pick the build of your choice to install.
You may also click Ignore, and go to the next part
Part 3: Install Doomzday Kodi Builds
1- Go to the home screen of Kodi again and click Add-ons
Select Program Add-ons next
Now click Doomzday Build Wizard
2- Click Builds
3- Here is the builds menu. Kodi 18 builds are lined up first. Click one of the builds to continue. I have chosen Easy Rider for this guide. However, if this build is not available or has been removed, you may choose any other build from the list.
Scroll down for Kodi 17.6 builds if you still use the old version
4- I always go with the Fresh Install. It wipes Kodi clean before installing the build.
If you like, you may choose Standard Install instead
5- If you chose Fresh Install, you will see this prompt. Click Continue
6- The build will now first download on your device and then install. This process usually takes 2-3 minutes
7- When the installation is finished, you will be prompted to choose Reload Profile or Force Close
Click Force Close
Kodi will now close. You may restart Kodi to use the build.
Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons / 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, Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Kodi users are strongly advised to connect a VPN while streaming. A VPN for Kodi will bypass ISP throttling, Government Surveillance, and geo-restriction on popular Add-ons. I always connect ExpressVPN on all my streaming devices and I suggest you do the same.
ExpressVPN is the fastest and most secure VPN. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it freely for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for the full refund.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of the 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.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your device.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
Overview of the Doomzday Easy Rider Kodi Build
Even though I chose Easy Rider build, you could pick any other build you like from the DoomzDay Build Menu. However, since we have installed Easy Rider, let’s take a quick look at it. As it is easy to guess, Easy Rider Kodi build’s theme is based on bikes and riding. The home screen of Kodi looks like this with this build:
Easy Rider is more suited for remote-controlled devices, such as FireStick and Android Boxes. It does not have mouse support. However, if you have installed it on a computer, you can easily navigate with arrow keys.
The home menu contains various streaming categories including Movie Hub, TV Show Hub, 1Click Hub, All N One, RD/4K Hub, DeathStar, Live Streams, Sports Hub, Music Hub, Kidz Hub. Each menu item has its own submenu, which can be accessed by pressing the down navigation button.
When you select a streaming category, the featured video suggestions are lined up above the home menu.
If you would like to explore the video add-ons, from the home menu go to Add-ons > Videos. Easy Rider and other Doomzday Kodi builds feature some popular Kodi addons such as Seren, SportsDevil, The Magic Dragon, DeathStar, and more.
Doomzday is a collection of some interesting Kodi builds. When I was writing this guide, the Wizard had more than 20 builds for both Kodi 18 and Kodi 17.6. Not all the builds in the library are great but some do grab your notice, such as Easy Rider that we explored in this guide. Doomzday Kodi builds come with a healthy collection of Kodi addons, many of which are the part of our long list of Best Kodi Addons. The builds offer streaming options for all sorts of content. There are special categories and addons for movies, shows, kids, sports, live TV and more. Most builds are lightweight and offer decent performance on low-RAM, low-storage devices such as FireStick. Some are a bit heavy and you may experience some lags. However, I would say that DoomzDay is a good library of Kodi builds to explore. You may want to give it a try.
