Some of the most popular Kodi repositories have been taken down after reportedly receiving a Cease and Desist letter from ACE.

Not a happy Valentine’s for a lot of people this year as some of the most popular Kodi related sources were reportedly hit with cease and desist letters today from Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment (ACE), an anti-piracy partnership between Hollywood studios, Netflix, Amazon, and more than two dozen other companies. These letters were identical to those received by the Colossus, Dandy Media, Mucky Ducky, and other repositories back in November 2017.

The cease and desist letter alleges that the defendant receiving the letter is encouraging copyright infringement through the addons. The letter does not appear to be a signed legal document. There is no signature from a lawyer and no law firm is listed on the letter. It simply asks to “stop” or be faced with further punishment.

In the specifics, this is what we know as of right now:

Noobs and Nerds Repository

At least one member of the Noobs and Nerds repository received letters today and the official NoobsandNerds.com website leads to a suspended account message. Their Twitter account has been deleted as well. Lastly, the NaN repo has been pulled offline.

OpenELEQ, posted the following on Reddit:

You probably all seen it allready: Nan-site is offline as is their twitter. It does not look like it will be comming back either and I have also emptied out my repo’s of all content that could be considered copyright-infringing.

I will be keeping my git-account alive though simply to avoid it being high-jacked, nothing else. Also, if you see claims in the future that I or Nan endorses TVA (similar to what happened to Xunity), do not believe it as that will never ever happen!

For anyone still choosing to associate with TVA: watch your back and the best of luck, you are going to need it. Sure, there are some good people amongst them but imo, Adam/Eleazar is by far the most arrogant, devious and generally the worst person I have ever come across.

To end on a positive note, I would like to take this chance to say that Nan and totalxbmc before that have without a doubt been the nicest and most helpfull group I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with and being a part of. I have frequented a lot of kodi related forums (tvaddons.ag/co/nl, xunity, openelec to name just a few) but nowhere have I felt more welcome, appreciated and, well, simply at home then at nan.

ZT Team – Pyramid

Although the Zero Tolerance Team Repository seems that isn’t going anywhere, the repo and wizard are currently offline. Also, from the same repository it is certain that the Pyramid addon and the Tombraider builds are now history. Pyramid / Tombraider decided that is not worth the risk and retired from the KODI 3rd party developing scene.

Teverz Repo

Teverz which is also a Youtube content creator, has his own wizard for Kodi. He received a letter and talked to the referee on the phone via the number supplied. So far, Teverz in a video that he released said that he is keeping everything online, calling the letter nothing but a “scare tactic” without any  sort of legal weight.

Looking Glass Repo

The Looking Glass Repository is also offline and their server gives a message that the account is suspended. Though we do not have an official statement from the group, it seems that they also left the scene.

Doggmatic

Doggmatic is also a Youtuber and a build maker. Like Teverz he released a video saying that the letter he received has no legal authority and that he is not going anywhere. He is not a member of the Illuminati Team Repo as it was reported by some media and KODI related blogs.

 

SpinzTV Repository

SpinzTV, one of the most popular Kodi builds/wizard (also hosted the Strictly HD and Spinz Cartoon Crazy addons) seems that also received a cease and desist letter from ACE. His KODI builds and whole repository are offline and he has stated that he is finished with Kodi for now:

Reports that also Mr Blamo received the same cease and desist letter appear to be false. The repository has changed server and in order to update the repo you need to download the latest version: blamo repository (v0.0.6).

In the community there is also a rumor that supposedly TVAddons is behind these attacks. This also seems to be false, in fact most of the people that received the ACE cease and desist letters do not believe that it has nothing to do with TV Addons. TVA in their website reported the news about the NoobsAndNerds c&d letter and even if from the article one can easily understand that there is not a lot of love in their relatioship, they also added their support to the NAN group.

Although certain members of NaN would from time to time attack our community, we never spoke ill of them. In the spirit of open source, we only wishes them the best. We understand what it’s like to fall victim to copyright bullies and hope they get out of it without losing their shirts.

TVaddons came up with a new way of installing the greatest and latest addons for Kodi in 2018. Or not? Is this really a good and safe way to install addons on Kodi?

In this video I am gonna explain to you why I will not use this method and why you should stay away or pay a lot of attention when you use this new method by TVaddons. Sometimes the intention may be good but not always it works as it should.

Colossus which is a colossal repository with some of the best addons on KODI (just to mention some: Covenant, SportsDevil, ToonMania, FilmOn, Ultimate Whitecream, cCloud TV,Dr Stream Fork, Cartoons8, NBA On-demand, etc.) has now it’s own repository on Github. And that is already great news since there were a lot of issues on installing the repository from the previous source. But what is even better news is that we have a Colossus Libraries Repository as well, which is the place where a lot of necessary dependencies are and needed by a lot of third party KODI addons like the classical example of f4mtester.

You can get the repo from https://dimitrology.com/repo and after installing the Colossus Repo make sure to go into Addon Repository folder of Colossus / or Colossal and install Colossus Libraries Repository as well. Also some other great repositories are there too.

More info about this colossal / colossus addon repository to come soon!

TVADDONS is down? No problem! New repository with a lot of TVAddons KODI 3rd party addons like Exodus latest version 3.1.21, SALTS, ALLUC, SportsDevil, 1Channel, IceFilms, F4MTester and more!

This version of Exodus 3.1.21 has fixed the error during installation, so if you got error during exodus install, this one should go smoothly. Also, the SportsDevil addon seems legit, the version date is 24th of June!

All the addons can be found in the Smash repository, follow this easy video tutorial on how to install them all on just some of them on your KODI setup. Read more

Fantastic news for all the 3rd party addon users on KODI! EXODUS and SALTS are back working again on KODI with a new repository from where you can install them for the first time or simply get the latest, working update! Both Exodus and SALTS are back working again, it is the fixed version and hopefully we will see new updates soon as well!

If you already have those addons installed, simply add the repository (this new version) and the rest will be automatic: updates, etc.

Also inside the repository, other than those two great KODI addons we find the F4MTESTER addon, which is needed for a lot of IPTV addons on KODI!

A new and very ambitious project is taking place with a central repository that is home for other repositories as well. The StreamAddons Repo is a main repository for other repositories and developers of KODI 3rd party addons. Currently there are only some repositories but it seems to grow everyday and it is also a perfect timing since TVAddons has gone offline.

For the time being you can find the Stream Army Repo, Brettus Repository, Rockcrusher Repository, Simtech Repository but since it is a very fresh project it can only grow more. Definitely to keep an eye on!

Salts also known as Stream All The Sources and 1 Channel also known as Primewire are back on KODI by a new developer and in a new repository. In order to install them both or if you have them already installed but you need to be able to get the future updates you have to add the repository of the new developer K3L3VRA which took over since TKNORRIS left from the development of both addons.

The new repository of K3L3VRA for SALTS and 1CHANNEL is always under TVADDONS and in the Fusion URL. Follow the very easy tutorial in the video in order to add it.

Some of the best third party Addons on KODI are closing down and that is the domino effect of the complaint that DISH Network has filled against TV Addons and the ZEM TV Addon. It may sound surreal but it’s true, in the video I give you all the sources as the copy of the complaint filled in Texas. Now a judge will have to decide.

Dish Network sues TV Addons and ZEM TV Addon for copyright infringement and a lot of developers have decided to close their addons. Some will be imported to other known addons like Silent Hunter going to Stream Army, some have permanently removed everything like Phoenix, One242415, ZEM TV and some have an uncertain future since we have no announcement but also we cannot find them in the repositories like SALTS, Pro Sport, cCloud TV, etc.

A very sad day for KODI and third party addons and we will have to wait and see if this was it or if we are still at the start of a massive KODI crackdown.

The Stream Army Add-on for KODI has moved and in order to install it for the first time you need the new source and repository. The fantastic All In One KODI Addon (stream army) continues it’s amazing job by providing amazing content, now from TVAddons.

The Stream Army addon brings Movies, TV shows, Live TV, Sports, Music, Kids, Virtual Reality and also an Adult section on your KODI device. This is a 3rd party addon created by Nemzzy and ManC.

Sad news for the fans of Echo Wizard. This is the end of the wizard and a new start for the Echo repository. The add-ons have moved to TVAddons so you can continue to enjoy them as Echocoder will continue developing the add-ons from there.

All the video add-ons will continue as usual, the Program add-ons though had the great loss of the Echo Wizard even though the Echo
TV Guide will continue to be developed also on the TVAddons group.

So what happens to all the Echo Community Builds? You will need to find the respective Build wizard for each one of them as they will no longer be in one place as before. Possibly Echo will share his skills in contributing inside the Indigo add-on and of course with the collaboration of other great developers.
