Let‘s get started!

What is Project JL Kodi Build?

Project JL is a pre-configured Kodi build that comes bundled with many great video and program add-ons, an attractive interface, and custom settings designed for the best streaming experience.

This build does not come from the official Kodi repository. Instead, it‘s offered by a third-party Kodi wizard called cMaN.

The main appeal of builds like Project JL is that they save you the hassle of tracking down and installing add-ons. Everything is pre-installed and ready to use.

Some key features of Project JL include:

  • Streamlined menus for Movies, TV, Sports, Kids content, and more
  • Popular video add-ons like The Crew, Fen, Ezra, and Scrubs v2
  • Support for Trakt and Real-Debrid to enhance streaming
  • Custom skin giving the interface a unique look and feel

Next, let‘s go over whether it‘s safe to use this build.

Is Project JL Kodi Build Safe?

Whenever installing third-party builds from unknown developers, it‘s smart to proceed with caution. There is always a risk that malware or privacy concerns could exist.

I scanned the repository URL for Project JL using VirusTotal and it came back clean, with no detected issues:


This is reassuring but not a guarantee that the build is 100% safe. The developer could still push out a problematic update in the future.

To be extra careful, I recommend using a VPN like Surfshark or IPVanish when streaming with Project JL or any other third-party Kodi build. This will encrypt your connection and prevent your streaming activities from being logged by your ISP or hackers.

Overall, Project JL comes from a reasonably trusted Kodi wizard developer and I haven‘t seen any major complaints about malware or privacy problems. But it‘s impossible to say for certain whether any third-party build is completely risk-free. Using a VPN gives you an added layer of protection.

Now let‘s walk through how to get Project JL installed.

How to Install Project JL Kodi Build

Before installing Project JL, it‘s always smart to reset Kodi to a fresh state. This clears out any old configurations that could cause conflicts.

Here are the steps to install Project JL:

  1. Open Kodi > Go to Settings > System > Reset

    This will wipe Kodi back to factory settings. Confirm that you want to reset when prompted.

  2. Go back to Settings > System > Add-ons > Turn on "Unknown Sources"

    This allows you to install from unofficial repositories like cMaN Wizard.

  3. Go to File Manager > Add Source > Enter

    This will add the URL for the cMaN repository hosting Project JL. Name the source whatever you like.

  4. Go back to Add-ons > Install from Zip File > Choose the cMaN repository > Install

    This will install the cMaN repository containing Project JL and other builds.

  5. Go to Install from Repository > cMaN‘s Wizard Repository > Program add-ons > Install cMaN Wizard 19

    Now you can access the wizard containing Project JL.

  6. Open cMaN Wizard 19 > Go to Builds > Choose Project JL > Install

    Time to finally grab Project JL! Let the build install completely.

  7. Reboot Kodi Once Complete

    You need to fully restart Kodi before Project JL will be available.

And that‘s it! The Project JL Kodi Build will now be ready to use. The whole process only takes a few minutes.

Next, let‘s look at some of the key features of this build.
