If you have multiple Kodi devices and are tired of having to configure each one manually, this Backup Restore Wizard should answer your prayers! Now you can backup your Kodi addon configuration from one device onto a USB Flash Drive, and then restore it on as many other devices as you need. This will save you a whole lot of time, and allow you to maintain a uniform Kodi setup throughout your household. This method will also allow you to more easily share your Kodi customizations with friends, coworkers and neighbours.
The Backup Restore Wizard was developed by LittleWiz and is distributed through our community repository for easy access. All you’ll need is a blank USB Flash Drive, along with a Kodi device that has a USB port. This method of backing up and restoring your Kodi addons and configuration is extremely easy, and anyone can do it if they follow our guide carefully.
