In this tutorial, I am laying out the instructions to download and install One Nation Portal Kodi Builds. The instructions will work on Amazon FireStick, Fire TV, iOS, Android Mobiles, Mac, Windows and all the supported Kodi devices.
One Nation Portal is a collection of more than 20 builds. It has builds for Kodi Krypton 17.6 and Kodi 18 Leia. One Nation is one of the most trusted sources for builds and addons these days. I have tested and used multiple builds from its collection.
Most builds offer a good collection of pre-loaded addons, acceptable performance, and overall a decent experience. Therefore, I did not hesitate to include One Nation Portal in our Best Kodi Builds list. We will explore the One Nation Portal Kodi builds in this guide. I am picking Cobalt Kodi build for demonstration. But, you may choose any other build you like.
How to Install One Nation Portal Builds on Kodi
OneNation Portal builds are from a third-party source. If you are thinking about installing any third-party build, you must first make sure that the Unknown Sources is enabled. Here is how you do it:
#1: Run the Kodi app on your device
#2: Click Settings icon (on the top-left, under the Kodi logo)
#3: Open System Settings next (or click System if you are running Kodi 18)
#4: Select Add-ons on the left of the screen.
Now, on the right, click the Unknown Sources toggle and switch it on (if it is off)
#5: Choose Yes when the following prompt appears. Don’t worry, OneNation Portal Kodi builds are safe and will cause no harm to your device
You are now all set to install OneNation Portal Kodi builds. Let’s get started.
#1: Click Settings again on the Kodi home-screen
#2: Open File manager on the next window (File manager is placed in the top row in Kodi 18 Leia)
#3: Click Add source (on either side)
#4: When this window pops up, click <None>
#5: You now need to enter the following source URL/Path on this window: http://www.onenation.info/Portal
Type the URL carefully, exactly as I have provided here and click OK
#6: Now select the Enter the name for this media source text area and enter the name OneNation (or you may type any other name you like, it won’t affect the outcome. Just type the name you can remember)
#7: Go back to the home-screen of Kodi
#8: Click Add-ons
#9: Open the Package Installer option. It is the icon that appears like an open box. You will find it on the top-left of the following window
#10: Choose Install from zip file
#11: Click OneNation or any other name you typed previously
#12: Click the following zip file when you see this window:
Note: x.x.x is the version number of the file, which is 1.1.1 as I write this guide
#13: Now wait for the alert One Nation Portal Add-on installed.
It will take several minutes to download and install the addon. And, while it is being installed, nothing will appear on your screen. It may seem that nothing is happening. But, wait for a few minutes. Add-on will be installed.
#14: You should now see 3 popup windows that will appear one after another. Click the appropriate options to get rid of these windows. On the first popup click Dismiss. On the second, click Continue and on the third click Ignore. If these pop-ups appear again, click the same options.
#15: Now go back to the Kodi home-screen by pressing the back/esc keys on your device. When you are on the home-screen, go to Add-ons > Program addons
#16: Now go ahead and click One Nation Portal addon icon
#17: Open (OneNation Portal) Builds
#18: You should now see the list of all the builds hosted by One Nation Portal. You can install any build you like. As I mentioned before, we will test the Cobalt Kodi build in this guide.
Leia builds are listed first. If you are using Kodi 18, pick the Cobalt Build from this section.
If you are still using Krypton, scroll down to the Krypton Builds section and click Cobalt build. There are two servers to choose from. You may pick any. If one server doesn’t install the build, pick the other. Server 1 worked for me.
Note: One Nation Portal Builds may not be stable on Kodi 18 Leia. Cobalt Build kept crashing for me. I am hoping there will be a fix soon.
#19: Click Fresh Install next
This option will wipe out all the data on Kodi including your addons and settings. It is recommended that you choose Fresh Install for the more optimal performance of the build.
#20: Click Continue to proceed when the following confirmation message appears
#21: Wait for the Cobalt Kodi build to download and install. This may take several minutes depending upon the speed of your internet connection and device specs.
#22: When the build is installed, the following prompt appears. Click Force Close
Well, that will be all. You have successfully installed the Cobalt Kodi build from the One Nation Portal.
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.
Cobalt Kodi Build: A Quick Look
Go ahead and restart Kodi. You will see a completely new home-screen.
The menu bar features the following main categories for videos:
- TV – HUB for on-demand movies and shows
- DECEIT: Special section to stream content from the all-in-one addon Deceit
- MOVIE-HUB: Plays on-demand movies
- VIP: Premium Live TV
- BEATS: For music
Here is the list of all the pre-loaded video-addons with Cobalt Kodi build.
There are plenty of options to watch on-demand movies and shows. With SportsDevil addon, you also have a lot of choices to watch sports content. However, there isn’t a lot to pick from the Live TV options. In fact, this build does not even feature a free Live TV category. You can try VIP but you will need a paid subscription.
Thankfully, the build lets you install live TV addons separately. You can pick one from our Best Kodi Addons list.
Cobalt Kodi build is smooth on most devices. It works fine even on low-spec FireStick. Even though it is not the greatest build, I like it for its simplicity and ease of use. You may want to give it a try.
So, this is how you install the One Nation Portal Kodi builds. There are more than 20 builds for both Kodi Leia and Kodi Krypton. While I have installed Cobalt for the demonstration purposes in this guide, you can pick any build you like. Which build did you like the best? We would like to hear from you.
