How to use both Kodi 19 and Kodi 18.9 on Firestick or Android TV Box.

Kodi 19 has officially arrived but most 3rd party addons and builds don’t work properly with this new release.

The reason for this is due to the new Python 3 addon requirement that developers must meet and most haven’t done that yet.

Since it isn’t possible to install two different versions of Kodi on the same device, I created a Kodi 18.9 Fork called K 18.9 which you can install alongside Kodi 19.

With this, you can have the best of both worlds. You can keep using Kodi 18.9 with your favorite addons that aren’t compatible yet with 19 and use 19 with the addons that are compatible.


For those who are on Kodi 18.9 and want to try Kodi 19.0, I’ve created a fork for that as well. You can install the Kodi 19.0 Fork through Downloader with or get it through our free Rapid App Installer –

  2. Thanks for the updates Troy. I didnโ€™t download Kodi 19, my system automatically updated to from 18.9 to the 19. I canโ€™t get Seren to work because there are no providers. I install Nemesis AIO, but some programs have no links to play especially when I want to watch a TV show. So, I am hoping 18.9 Fork will work until 19 is updated with all the Addons I have in 18.9. Appreciate all you do to help us out! Have a great week!

  3. Hey Troy so when about do you think it will be compatible as 18.9 is? I tell you what I had a prominent tech person on YT ask my why i still use Kodi "its so 2010 he said". I was like say what you want but addons like Venom and exodus redux constantly pull better quality RD links than apks like cinema and the kodi player can do alot more i find the audio sounds better also. They just do. So im staying put with Kodi.

  4. My Dear Friend, Formated to fat32 still no joy. Sandisk 2.0 16GB because I get the same results with the Sandisk 128Gb 3.0 After running sm list-disks all I get back is mantis:/ $

    Ran df -h just for giggles and only the firestick shows. When I use ES Explorer it does not see the sticks either of them. No Joy Any Ideas Firestick 4k running OS6

  5. The slyguy Addon works on kodi 19 mainly New Zealand ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฟ and Australian TV Channels . Cinema HD Can play through Kodi just select your Server and go to play with. And the Slyguy Addon works with Kodi 19. Mainly New Zealand ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฟand Australian Channels.

  6. Is the new OLA 10 available on any Addon that can be used with Kodi 18.9 or Kodi 19. I am using the 3rd Generation Firestick. I am trying to use the APK file on my firestick but it will not load up while using Nord VPN. When I disconnect the VPN OLA 10 home screen appears. But I am to understand that a VPN should be used when using OLA 10. Many thanks in advance for your help in this matter.

  7. Hey Troy, thank you for always keeping us updated , I really appreciate it, i need your help please!?
    I just got a new Samsung tablet 7 & I searched downloader in the playstore to follow your rapid app instructions, but I can't find Downloader in the playstore on my tablet ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ how can I get cinema & kodi & the other apps available in the rapid app install?

  8. TY TY TY!!! After the K-19 rollout, my Xanax addons wouldn't provide real-debrid links, and a lot of times no links at all or links that couldn't play. But with the fork, we are BACK! Cinema HD, Exodus, Numbers, The Crew… all my go-tos. TVTap is the only live-tv app that works within Xanax, but hey it does everything I need. So Thank You again!!! Fork Everybody!
