Kodi has taken April Fools’ to the next level with this one. They actually took their site down and replaced it with a fake US Government domain name seizure notice. Not only did they go as far as taking their web site down, they took their download server down too! It’s a good thing that we’re here to come to the rescue, these are the links you’re going to need to use if you want to download Kodi until this wretched day is over.

Please find working Kodi download links below, which are powered by a mirror server controlled by the official Kodi camp. We hope that we’re not ruining what is already an epic April Fools’ joke on their part, but Kodi is like a drug for some people out there, someone’s gotta get them their fix! At this point in time, we’d like to apologize for not having an epic April Fools’ joke of our own.

Today’s your lucky day, because not only are we going to provide you with working Kodi download links, but we’re going to walk you right through the configuration process. Remember, once you download and install Kodi, everything else should be considered unofficial.

Part 1 Download Kodi

All you have to do in this step is download the Kodi installer below and then install the same way you would any other app.
