In this guide, we will learn how to install Uranus Kodi addon. This addon was shut down a long ago. However, it has now been revived by the Cy4Root Repository.
I am glad it is back as I used to be a fan of this addon. I hope you will like it too.
How to Install Uranus on Kodi
I am now going to tell you how to install Uranus on Kodi.
Also, the method below is for Kodi on Windows 10. What I really like about Kodi is that its interface is largely the same across all platforms including smartphones, tablets, and Amazon Fire TV Stick. Therefore, the following process will work just as good on any device you may be using.
Let’s get started.
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.
Part 1: Prepare Kodi to Install Uranus Addon
There is a security setting in Kodi that would not let you install any add-on you are sourcing from outside official Kodi Addon Repository. Uranus is also a third-party add-on, which we will install from an external repository. Therefore, we will need to change the security setting and enable the ‘Unknown Sources’.
If this gets you concerned about the safety of your device, have no worries at all. While it is true that there are some potentially unsafe addons, the one we are going to install is clean. I have tried it personally.
Here, is how you allow third-party add-on installation.
#1. Open the ‘Settings’ menu from the Kodi home screen. You will find this option on the top left and looks like a gear or cog icon.
#2. Now, select and open ‘System Settings’ from the list of the options in the Settings menu
#3. Click Add-ons setting on the left sidebar (as shown in the image below)
#4. Switch on the Unknown Sources toggle
#5. When you see the following error message, ignore it as we have already established that Uranus is a safe add-on. Click, ‘Yes’ to proceed.
Now we are all set to install Uranus Addon on Kodi. In fact, you can install any third-party addon you like.
I always recommend my readers to switch this option off once they have installed the desired app. This keeps your device safer.
Part 2 – Add the Source for Uranus Kodi Addon
#1. Run Kodi and click ‘Settings’ on the top left of the home screen
#2. When you see the list of the options, click ‘File Manager’
#3. Now you will see ‘Add source’ as one of the options on the next list. Open it!
#4. On the following window, click ‘<None>’ and enter https://cy4root2.github.io/zip. Type the URL exactly as I have provided.
Hit ‘OK’ once done
#5. You also need to provide a name for this repo/source in the ‘Enter a name for this media source.’ You may enter any name of your choice. Make it relevant though, so that you may identify it later. For this article, I give it the name ‘cy4root’.
#6. Click the ‘OK’ button once done.
You have now added the new repository source from which we will install Uranus Kodi addon.
Part 2 – Install Uranus on Kodi Using the Added Source
Now that the source is added, we will fetch Uranus addon from it. This part is easy. Here are the steps.
#1. Press the Backspace or Escape key until you are back on the Kodi home screen. From here, select ‘Add-ons’ from the menu on the left.
#2. On the next screen, click on the icon on the top left that looks like an open box (doesn’t it also look like the Dropbox icon?). This option is popularly called Package Installer.
#3. Click on ‘Install from zip file’
#4. On the next window you should be able to see ‘cy4root’, the name we chose for this source (in case you chose any other name, select it instead)
#5. Now, click “repository.cy4root-master.zip” as shown in the image below. If you see the different version number, still click it.
#6. Now, wait for the cy4root Repository Add-on installed notification to appear on the top right of the screen. It may take from a few seconds to a minute, depending upon the size of the repository
#7. Now that the cy4root Repository has been added, we will install Griffin Repo. Click “Install from Repository”
#8. Select ‘cy4root Repository’
#9. Now, click Video add-ons
#10. Click Uranus
#11. Click Install
#12. Click OK
#13. Wait for the Uranus Add-on Installed notification
Well, that’s how you add Uranus addon on Kodi 17.6 version. Go back to the Kodi home screen. If you don’t have a lot of add-ons, you should be able to see Uranus on Kodi home screen. And, if you happen to have many, just navigate to Add-ons > Video Add-ons. You will find Uranus here.
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.
