Hi friend! If you‘re looking for an easy way to access a ton of great streaming content, installing the Serene Kodi build is a fantastic option. This comprehensive build for Firestick, Fire TV, and Android devices is loaded with quality add-ons and features that make streaming a breeze.
In this guide, I‘ll provide detailed steps to get Serene up and running, plus extra tips to get the most out of it. Let‘s get started!
An Introduction to Kodi and Serene
First, a quick overview for those new to Kodi.
Kodi is a popular open-source media center application used by over 30 million devices worldwide. It provides user-friendly access to free streaming content from numerous online sources.
Kodi really becomes powerful when you add builds. A "build" bundles together the best add-ons, repositories, and custom skins so you don‘t have to configure everything yourself.
This is where Serene comes in.
Serene is one of the newest and best Kodi builds available today. Here‘s a quick rundown of some of its best features:
- Intuitive layout and navigation – Serene has one of the cleanest interfaces of any build
- Fast speeds – Minimal lag when browsing menus and streams
- Quality add-ons – Tons of top video add-ons like The Crew, Twisted, and Asgard come pre-installed
- Real-Debrid integration – Supports premium Real-Debrid streams for higher quality
- Regular updates – Stays current with latest addons and fixes
In my experience testing streaming devices, Serene provides one of the best overall user experiences. Everything just works smoothly.
Now let‘s go over how to install it on your device…
Complete Installation Walkthrough
Before we begin, I always recommend resetting Kodi to a fresh state first. This clears out any old files or settings that could interfere with installing a new build.
Here are quick guides to reset Kodi properly on the most popular streaming devices:
Once your Kodi install is wiped clean, we can install Serene. Follow these steps carefully:
1. Enable "Unknown Sources"
From the Kodi home screen:
- Click the Settings icon (shaped like a gear)
- Go to System > Add-ons
- Enable "Unknown Sources"
This allows you to install third-party add-ons not from the official Kodi repository.
2. Add the EzzerMacs Source
- Navigate to System > File Manager
- Click Add Source > None
http://ezzer-mac.com/repoand name it something like "em"
This adds the repository that hosts Serene.
3. Install the EzzerMacs Repository
- Go back to Add-ons in the main menu
- Select Install from Zip File > em > repository.EzzerMacsWizard.zip
You‘ll get a notification when the repository finishes installing.
4. Install BreezWizard Add-on
- Go to Install from Repository > EzzerMacs Wizard Repository
- Enter the Program Add-ons section
- Install BreezzWizard
BreezzWizard is the program that manages the Serene build.
5. Install Serene Build
- Return to the main Kodi menu
- Launch BreezzWizard from the Add-ons section
- Click Builds > Serene > Fresh Install
That‘s it! Serene will now download and automatically install. Give it a few minutes to fully update once launched.
Here are some quick troubleshooting tips if you run into any issues during the install process:
Make sure Unknown Sources is enabled in Settings before installing any third-party add-ons or repositories
If a repository installation fails, try disabling then re-enabling Unknown Sources
Double check that repository URLs are entered correctly in File Manager
An incorrect URL is the most common source of errors
Try force closing and restarting Kodi if you get stuck waiting on installations
Old cache files sometimes interfere, so restarting Kodi can help

Integrating Real-Debrid for Faster Streams
One of Serene‘s best features is native support for Real-Debrid integration.
Real-Debrid is an ultra-fast premium streaming service. It provides higher quality hoster links with no buffering or dead streams.
The process to enable it is quick:
- In Serene, go to System > Link Debrid > ResolveURL Login
- Note down the generated code shown
- On any web browser, go to real-debrid.com/device
- Enter the code and click Continue
Once connected, you‘ll have instant access to premium Real-Debrid streams in supported addons like The Crew and Seren.
Stream quality and reliability goes to the next level!

I hope these instructions helped explain the installation process. Let me know if you have any other questions!
Legal Considerations When Streaming
I want to briefly mention that while Kodi itself is perfectly legal, some of the content add-ons provide access to streams that may be copyrighted.
While builds like Serene contain no illegal content themselves, it‘s impossible for them to control entirely what users search for and stream.
Paid services like Real-Debrid are also safer, legal options for premium streaming content. But as with any gray area technology, personal responsibility is key.
I hope this guide brought value to your streaming setup! Stay safe out there.
