Small download size – Under 300MB makes it suitable for devices like Firesticks without much storage space.
Let’s look at how to get Slamious installed on your device.
How to Install Slamious Kodi Build on Firestick & Fire TV
One of the best parts of Slamious is how easy it is to install. You don’t have to configure each add-on manually. Here are the steps:
Step 1: Start with a Fresh Kodi Install
If this is your first time using Kodi, you’ll need to download and install it from the official website on your device. Make sure to get the latest stable release.
If you already have Kodi and want to avoid conflicts, I recommend resetting it back to the default settings:
From the Kodi home screen, select the gear icon ⚙️ to open Settings
Select "Reset Kodi Configuration to Default"
This wipes any existing builds and gives us a blank slate for Slamious.
Step 2: Enable “Unknown Sources” in Kodi Settings
Since Slamious isn’t an official Kodi add-on, we need to enable installation from third-party sources:
Return to the Settings menu
Choose Unknown Sources
Select Yes on the warning prompt
With this enabled, you can now install unverified add-ons and repositories. Keep in mind this also poses a potential security risk which is why using a VPN is recommended.
Step 3: Add the Slamious Repository
Now we need to download the Slamious repository file which hosts all their builds, add-ons, and tools:
Exit back to the Kodi home screen
Choose Add-ons from the sidebar
Select “Install from zip file”
Enter the following URL for the repository zip file:
Click OK and wait for the “Slamious Repo Add-on installed” notification
This repository will now be available to install Slamious and receive updates.
Step 4: Install the Slamious Kodi Wizard
Next we’ll download the “Slamious Wizard” which provides an easy way to install and manage Slamious builds:
Return to the Add-ons menu
Select “Install from repository”
Choose the Slamious Repo
Click Program add-ons
Select Slamious Wizard > Install
The Wizard will take a moment to enable. We‘re now ready to install Slamious!
Step 5: Install the Slamious Build
Launch the Wizard and install Slamious:
Exit to the Kodi home screen
Open Add-ons and select Program add-ons
Launch the Slamious Wizard
Select Slamious 18 under “Leia Builds”
Click Fresh Install
Choose Continue when prompted
The build will take 5-10 minutes to fully download and install. Time for a snack!
Step 6: Apply Themes & force close Kodi
Once finished, you‘ll be prompted to install optional themes. I recommend the Default skin.
Finally, force close Kodi so everything reloads properly:
Return to the Wizard menu
Select “Force Close”
Step 7: Launch and Enjoy Slamious!
Fire up Kodi again and you‘ll be greeted with the slick Slamious interface. Take some time to explore all of the entertainment options now available to you.
If you run into any issues, I have some troubleshooting tips at the end.

Keeping Slamious Kodi Build Up-to-Date
Unlike installing each add-on manually, Slamious allows you to update them all in just a few clicks.
Here is the process:
- Launch Kodi and select Add-ons from the sidebar
- Choose "My add-ons"
- Select the Slamious Wizard
- Click on "Maintenance"
- Choose "Check for Updates"
The Wizard will connect to the Slamious repository and install the latest version of any available add-ons. Always keep Slamious updated for best performance.
You can also change settings for automatic updates. I recommend enabling auto-updates so you always have the newest releases.
If Slamious itself receives an update, just re-run the installation process. It will download the newest build version.
Is Slamious Kodi Build Legal and Safe?
When using third-party Kodi builds like Slamious, it raises questions around legality and safety. Let‘s tackle these concerns.
First, the Slamious Kodi build itself is 100% legal. The developer isn‘t hosting or distributing any illegal content themselves.
However, once installed, you do gain access to third-party streaming add-ons. Some of these may link to pirated content, depending on which sources they scrape.
The Slamious developer does not verify that all sources are legal. They make no guarantees about the third-party content accessible through the build.
Fortunately, there are steps you can take to stay on the right side of the law:
- Enable Parental Controls and filter out any adult add-ons
- Avoid addons that aggregate torrents or hosters like Elementum and Seren
- Stick to well-known addons like YouTube, Pluto, and free IPTV
- Use a VPN to keep your streaming activity private
- Avoid downloading or sharing copyright-protected content
As long as you steer clear of anything suspicious, you can legally enjoy Slamious for its wealth of free, public domain content.
In terms of safety, the Slamious repository itself appears legitimate based on scans through services like VirusTotal:
But as with any third-party add-on, proceed at your own risk. There is potential for malware through unverified code. Using a VPN is highly recommended to keep devices secure.
Finally, Slamious privacy is a concern since add-ons may collect viewing data. I always recommend a VPN for Kodi to prevent monitoring and protect personal information.
If you take proper precautions, Slamious provides an amazing Kodi experience!
