If you have been in the Kodi community for a while, you probably remember that one of the best add-ons was called Genesis. There have been many others that have tried to imitate it, but now there is the Genesis Reborn add-on. This one is great, and gives you access to movies and TV programs. Whether or not it matches up to the old one, we shall see. If you want to get it, use our guide to help you download and install it.
Reminder: Use a VPN with Kodi to remain anonymous and access all Kodi add-ons. We recommend IPVanish, a zero-log VPN that delivers the fastest speeds of all providers we’ve tested. Get 60% off now exclusively through Kodi Fan.
Because Kodi is open source, there are many developers that create add-ons for the platform. They are divided in to two major groups. The ones located in the Official Kodi Addon Repository are official add-ons. All others are unofficial. This add-on is in the second group. You are not allowed to talk about the group 2 add-ons on the official forums or websites. If you need help, you’ll want to contact the Paragon Team. They will be glad to assist you with any questions you have. Please note that we are using the Kodi v17 Krypton version of the program.
How to Install the Genesis Reborn Add-on
To begin this install, we’ll open Kodi. First, choose the Settings icon (it looks like a gear).
On the next screen, you’ll see several rows of icons. Choose the one that says File Manager.
Now, the screen is divided in to 2 sections. Choose Add Source on the left side.
When the box pops up, select the highlighted word that says <None>. When prompted, enter exactly http://jesusboxrepo.xyz/repo/ and click OK.
Next, enter the name genesis reborn in the name field. Feel free to call it something else, as long as you know what it is. Again hit OK, and OK again to exit the box. From here, return to the Home Screen. This time, click on Add-ons.
As you can see on the top left, there is an icon there that looks like a box. Select the icon.
Now, choose Install from Zip file. If you are installing an unofficial for the first time, you will see the next screen. Simply click Settings, and move the slider next to Unknown Sources to the right. Say Yes to the warning screen. The warning message is just letting you know that there is risk involved. The Kodi team has added that type of message for the first time.
After seeing the unknown sources slider again, go back a screen and click on Install from zip file.
From here, choose the line that says genesis reborn > repository.jesusboxtv.zip. After going through those steps, wait a few moments until you get the message that tells you that the Jesusbox Repository is enabled. Next, choose the option above the last one that says Install from repository.
Choose the Jesusbox Repository > Video add-ons > Genesis Reborn.
When you see the add-on information screen below, choose the Install button.
Wait for a few moments and a message will let you know that the add-on is enabled. Go back a few screens until you see the Add-ons screen. Make sure you have Video Add-ons highlighted, and choose Genesis Reborn.
You are now ready to use the add-on and enjoy the benefits. If you like our guide, feel free to share it with others.
