Exodus has been the goto Movie & Tv Show add-on for some time now. As Lambda has retired, the updates have fallen on the community’s shoulders over at TV Addons.

The best feature of the forerunner of Exodus, was the library feature. It made keeping your favs, watchlist and so on in an easy and convenient way. Well LIBRARY features are BACK with 3.1.15 update. This was always hugely popular with users of Genesis, indeed its why many still use the forked version of Specto – the library feature is so convenient.

The Bug fix for Kodi 16 users.

** The repo on github has been removed by the owner, therefore is no official repo at present. The download link is now just for the plugin itself – which is also on Ares Wizard – this is temporary until its return **

The recent 3.1.17 & 3.1.18 releases had a major flaw with python <2.7 version. Whaaat? Ok, remember the story recently that you needed to upgrade from 16 to 17  due to HTTPS incompatibility (eg HD links)? Well in simple terms, the recent bug is due to that fix – and caused Exodus to fail on pre-patched versions – eg Kodi 16.1

You will need the new repository zip file – Exodus Repository < click this to get the repo zip! You can get a copy of the Exodus Zip and install it from Ares Wizard. This is the last known version of 3.1.19. The instructions below are only left here in case theres a return of the official repo etc.
