What is the Fallout Kodi Build?
First, let‘s quickly cover what exactly a "Kodi build" is for those unfamiliar with the concept.
A Kodi build is an all-in-one streaming package that includes:
- A customized interface/theme for Kodi
- Bundled addons and repositories pre-installed
- Desired program settings already configured
- Everything setup and ready to stream immediately
So rather than installing addons individually and configuring Kodi yourself, a build does all that work for you.
The Fallout Kodi Build specifically is one of the top options available right now.
It‘s located in the cMaN Repository, which also houses other popular builds like Elementum and cMaN‘s own build.
Some of the key features that make Fallout stand out:
- Works great on both Firestick and Android streaming devices
- Smooth, easy to navigate menu layout
- Gorgeous backdrop images from movies and shows
- Helpful categories for all your streaming needs
- Popular addons like The Oath, Ezra, Ghost, Shadow pre-installed
- Real-Debrid integration for faster streaming
- Kid-friendly section to keep the little ones entertained
In short, the developer has done an excellent job configuring Fallout with the essential addons and customization to provide an amazing streaming experience.
But how does this build stack up against competitors like The Crew or Echo Wizard? Let‘s compare.
How Fallout Compares to Other Top Kodi Builds
There are lots of great build options for Kodi 19 Matrix. Here is how Fallout compares to some other top choices:
|Fallout||Real-Debrid support, great background images, quality addons like The Oath and Ezra||Fewer customization options than Echo Wizard|
|The Crew||Huge content library, constant updates, very customizable||Some addon failures recently due to updates|
|Echo Wizard||Highly flexible customization, great instructional setup guide, user-friendly for beginners||Requires more manual addon installation compared to pre-loaded builds|
|No Limits||Massive content selection, especially for sports and UK programming||Very large build can slow down some devices, less frequently updated|
|Xanax||Terrific layout, artwork and background images, quality scraping addons||Smaller selection of addons compared to other builds|
As you can see, every build has pros and cons. There is no definitively "best" option.
The Fallout Kodi Build strikes a great balance of usability, customization and the top addons needed for streaming.
It may not have as extensive of a library as No Limits or total flexibility like Echo Wizard. But Fallout still provides a stellar experience for Kodi users in my opinion.
Now let‘s dive into the all-important question – is using this Kodi build actually legal and safe?
Is the Fallout Kodi Build Legal and Safe to Use?
When installing any third-party Kodi build, addon or repo that doesn‘t come directly from the official Kodi site, you need to be careful.
There are a few key factors to consider when assessing the legality and safety of Fallout:
The developer behind any unofficial Kodi add-on matters. Some push malware, some get shut down quickly, and some have been around for years without issue.
The cMaN Repository that hosts Fallout seems reputable at first glance. cMaN‘s Wizard has been available for some time and also hosts the Elementum and cMaN builds.
I scanned the repository URL using VirusTotal and no malware was detected. See the results:
However, having a "clean" URL does not guarantee safety long-term. Things can always change. So it‘s smart to proceed with caution.
While the Fallout build itself checks out, that doesn‘t mean all the bundled addons are necessarily safe and legal.
Some of the video addons pull streams from questionable sources. And Kodi even warns that third-party addons may access data on your device:
A quality VPN encrypts your data and hides your IP address from prying addons, copyright trolls, and your ISP.
Streaming vs. Downloading
Accessing content through legal means like free Twitch streams or your owned Plex media server is perfectly fine.
However, streaming copyrighted movies and shows without the proper rights or permissions crosses the line into piracy.
Thankfully, the legal risk from streaming alone tends to be relatively low compared to torrenting. But it still violates copyright law in most cases.
Proceed at your own risk. Using a VPN helps shield your identity when streaming.
Now that you understand the legal gray area of third-party builds like Fallout, let‘s get into the installation process.
How to Install the Fallout Kodi Build
Ready to get Fallout up and running? Here is a step-by-step walkthrough:
Before starting, make sure:
- You have Kodi installed on your Firestick, Fire TV, or Android streaming device
- Your device is connected to reliable WiFi with good bandwidth
- You have about 300-500MB free storage space
- Unknown sources is enabled in Kodi (I‘ll cover how during setup)
- Resetting Kodi beforehand is recommended
1. Reset Kodi to Factory Settings
I suggest resetting Kodi to a fresh state first before installing any new build. This clears out any old addons or settings and ensures best performance.
Here are quick tutorials for factory resetting Kodi:
Once you have a fresh Kodi install, move on to the next step.
2. Enable "Unknown Sources"
Since we are installing addons outside the official Kodi repository, we need to enable Unknown Sources.
From the main Kodi menu:
- Select the Settings icon (looks like a gear)
- Choose System > Addons
- Toggle on Unknown Sources
You may get a warning prompt after enabling it. Select Yes to continue.
Unknown sources just means allowing installation of addons from third-parties not endorsed by Kodi. This allows us to add the Fallout repository.
3. Add the cMaN Repository
Now we need to add the repository that contains the Fallout Kodi Build:
- Go to Settings > File Manager > Add Source
- Enter the following URL exactly:
- Name the source "cman" then select OK.
This adds the repository from the cMaN developers that host Fallout.
4. Install the cMaN Repository Addon
Next we actually need to install the repository as an addon in Kodi:
- Return to the main Kodi menu
- Select Addons from the sidebar
- Choose Install from Zip File
- Select the "cman" source we added earlier
- Install the file called
This will install the cMaN Repository addon. Wait for the confirmation message after installing.
5. Install the cMaN Wizard
The cMaN Wizard is the addon that gives us access to install the Fallout build:
- Go to Install from Repository
- Select the cMaN‘s Wizard Repository
- Go to Program Addons
- Install the "cMaN Wizard 19" addon
Once installed, you‘ll get a message. Hit Continue to go back to the main interface.
6. Launch the cMaN Wizard
From the Kodi home screen, open the Addons menu.
You should now see the cMaN Wizard 19 addon listed. Open it.
This will launch the wizard that we need for the new build.
7. Install the Fallout Kodi Build
Within the cMaN Wizard, go to the Builds section.
You will see Fallout 19 Kodi Build listed as one of the available options. Select it.
On the next screen hit Install to begin the Fallout download and installation.
The download may take a couple minutes depending on your network speed.
Once complete, you‘ll get prompted to do a Fresh or Standard install. Choose Fresh to fully wipe your Kodi configuration.
Kodi will then begin installing Fallout and its dependencies. The whole process could take 5-10 minutes.
When finished, Kodi will close automatically.
8. Relaunch Kodi
Open Kodi back up, and you should now see the new Fallout Kodi Build interface!
Take some time to navigate the menus and explore all this build has to offer.
And that‘s it! Just follow these steps and you‘ll have a fully configured Fallout Kodi setup ready to start streaming.
Next let‘s take a look at what‘s included with this build.

Troubleshooting Fallout Installation Problems
The Fallout Kodi Build is generally very stable and problem-free for most users. But issues can pop up occasionally based on your device setup.
Here are some common problems and fixes:
Build won‘t install – This is usually due to an unstable internet connection. Try disconnecting/reconnecting to WiFi or using a wired Ethernet connection if possible. Slow internet can disrupt the download.
Missing addons – Sometimes an addon installation may fail. Try re-installing the ones giving you trouble through the Addon Installer within Fallout. Or add the repo URL manually in File Manager.
Interface not responding – This could be a temporary glitch or indicate a problem with the skin. Try restarting Kodi and if the issue persists, change to a different skin like Arctic Zephyr.
Can‘t find sources – Check that your device is connected to the internet and try clearing the addon cache. Also enable debrid services if you haven‘t.
