How to Install the Kodi Ghost Repo on Firestick, Fire TV, and Android Box

The Kodi Ghost Repo is one of the most popular 3rd party repositories available today. It contains a great selection of video, music, program, and other add-ons that make it a top choice for many Kodi users.

In this step-by-step guide, you‘ll learn how to easily install the Kodi Ghost Repo on Firestick, Fire TV, and Android TV boxes.

An Overview of Kodi Repositories

Before jumping into the installation process, let‘s do a quick overview of what exactly Kodi repositories are and why they are useful.

A Kodi repository, sometimes called a "repo" for short, is essentially a storage center for many different Kodi add-ons. Instead of having to install add-ons one by one, a repository allows you to install multiple add-ons all at once from one location.

Repositories make it much easier to expand your Kodi library with lots of great video and music content. Some of the best Kodi repositories include:

  • Kodi Ghost Repo – Contains many great video, music, program, and picture add-ons. The focus of this guide.

  • Kodi Nerds Repo – Known for various movies, TV shows, live TV, and sports add-ons.

  • Supremacy Repo – Offers several high-quality video and utility add-ons.

  • The Crew Repo – Features The Crew video add-on along with several others.

  • XvBMC Repo – Contains a variety of Kodi maintenance, tool, and utility add-ons.

The major benefit of repositories is having easy access to lots of add-ons in one place versus having to manually find and install each add-on individually.

Now that you understand what Kodi repositories are, let‘s move on to installing one of the best – the Kodi Ghost Repo.

Step 1: Reset Kodi Settings to Default

Before installing any new repositories or add-ons, it‘s highly recommended to reset your Kodi settings to default. This clears out any old add-ons and gives you a fresh start.

Resetting Kodi will vary slightly depending on the device you have it installed on. Here are the basic steps:

Fire TV / Firestick:

  1. Go to Settings > Applications > Manage Installed Applications
  2. Select Kodi > Clear Data

Android Box:

  1. Go to Settings > Apps > Kodi
  2. Tap Clear Data

Windows PC:

  1. Open Kodi and click the gear icon in the top left
  2. Go to System > Reset > Reset to Default

Once you‘ve reset Kodi, you‘ll have to re-enter your settings and login information. This is normal after a reset.

With Kodi now back to factory settings, we can move on to installing the Ghost Repo.

Step 2: Enable Unknown Sources in Kodi

Since Kodi repositories are not part of the official Kodi add-on library, you need to enable installation of "unknown sources" first. This just tells Kodi it‘s okay to install outside add-ons.

Here‘s how to enable unknown sources:

  1. Open Kodi and click the gear icon to access the Settings menu

  2. Go to System > Add-ons

  3. In the Add-ons area, enable Unknown Sources

  4. When prompted, click Yes to confirm

Unknown sources are now turned on. This allows you to install the Ghost Repo from an external source next.

Step 3: Add the Kodi Ghost Repo Source

Now that you‘ve reset Kodi and enabled unknown sources, it‘s time to add the actual Ghost Repo source.

The source points Kodi to the URL location where the repository files are stored online. Here‘s how to add it:

  1. From the Kodi home screen, go to System > File Manager

  2. Click Add Source

  3. Enter the following URL exactly as shown:
  4. Highlight the box underneath and enter a name for this media source, like "ghost"

  5. Click OK to save the source

You should now see the Ghost Repo source added to the File Manager list. This tells Kodi where to look to install the repository add-on in the next step.

Step 4: Install the Kodi Ghost Repo

With the Ghost Repo source added, you can now install the actual repository add-on:

  1. Go back to the Kodi home screen and select Add-ons

  2. Choose Install from zip file

  3. Click the "ghost" source you named earlier

  4. Select the file

  5. Wait for the add-on enabled notification

It may take Kodi a minute or two to install the repo. Once you see the "Add-on installed" message, you know the Ghost Repo has been successfully installed.

Step 5: Browse the Kodi Ghost Repo Add-ons

Now comes the fun part – browsing all of the great add-ons within the Kodi Ghost Repo. Here‘s how to access them:

  1. From the Add-ons section, choose Install from repository

  2. Select the Ghost Repo add-on repository

  3. Browse the video, music, program, and picture add-ons

  4. Install any add-ons you find interesting!
