How to Install Revolution Kodi Addon?
We have divided the installation process of the Kodi Addons into three sections so that anyone can follow these steps and install the Addon to a respective PC system. We have prepared this step-by-step tutorial on a Mac system. However, the instruction steps are the same for all the PC systems.
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.
Section 1: Enabling Unknown Sources Feature
Kodi app has a built-in security feature that is disabled by default. This security feature prevents users from installing unauthorized and third-party sources to the app. Since the Revolution Kodi addon is a third-party addon, you have to enable this option first to let the Kodi app install this addon without interruptions.
1. Open the Kodi app on your device
Click the Settings option from the upper left corner. The Settings option is given in the middle; see the below image.

4. A warning message will be popped-up on your screen. Make sure to select the Yes button when asked.
You’ve enabled the Unknown Sources option on your Kodi app. By now, you can install the third-party addons from different repositories to your Kodi app.
Section 2: Installation of the Dejavu Repository
The Revolution Kodi Addon is a part of the Dejavu Repository. To get the Revolution Addon installed on your Kodi app, you need to add the Dejavu Repository. The following steps will help you to add this repository to the Kodi app. You can install the Revolution Kodi addon easily.

2. Click the Add Source option from the left sidebar. This option allows you to add a new repository to the Kodi app.
3. From the Add File Source page, click the <None> option.

Enter the following URL to the Address bar and then click the Ok button.
5. From this page, click the AddName option to give a suitable name to this repository. E.g., we have given the “dejavu” name to this repository.
Click the Ok button.
6. Again, from the Settings menu, click the Add-ons option.
7. Select the Install from Zip file option from 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.
