Kodi 4K Build
How to install the 4K Build for Kodi Krypton. The 4K Build is one of the Cosmic Saints builds, and designed for the big screen.
4K Build Overview
The 4K Build covered here is provided by CosmicSaints inside of the Ares wizard. When I first opened this build I was actually quite shocked, it looks absolutely amazing. The colours contrast so well, and the backgrounds move in and out giving it great appearance and motion. If you have Kodi set up on a big screen or 4K screen, give this build a go for sure.
4K Build has categories for Movies, TV Shows, SportsDevil, Live TV, Mens, Ladies, Kids, Soccer, System, Clean-up, Power, Add-ons, Weather, Music, 24/7 and Favourites. So something for everyone.
This guide is for Kodi Krypton, and the steps below are listed for the Estuary skin. If you have any problems with this build, feel free to leave a comment below and we’ll reply. This build only works on Kodi Krypton, no Kodi Jarvis version is available.

Ares Wizard and pins
As this build is from the Ares Wizard in Kodi, you will be asked for a pin. When the message pops up, hit the “Get Pin” button. A web browser will open, giving you a 4 digit pin. Go back into Kodi, and press “Enter Pin” in the Ares Wizard. Enter the pin you received to get access to the build. You can scan the QR code or enter the given URL on your mobile too.
