Top 10 Latest & Best Kodi Krypton Builds for May 2018


Best Kodi Krypton Builds for May 2018

Can you believe we are almost halfway through 2018? This year is sure flying, and the development of Kodi Builds aren’t slowing down. This site used to primarily focus around Kodi Builds, Add-ons, Skins and Guides but we recently toned that down, to focus on other content such as game guides.

However each month, we still cover the most current list of working Kodi Builds as we have a lot hosted here on the site. Whilst we will list some good builds below that we’re tested and working as of May 2018, it’s possible they will have dead URLs at any time.

If an URL/Build is not working, you will receive the ‘Could not retrieve directory URL’ most likely. Either because the link is not working or because you have inputted the source URL incorrect. We covered this in more depth here.

It’s no lie that a lot of Kodi Builds have actually bit the dust. Kodi Developers are now forced to host builds themselves, usually on their own site since the demise of Ares Wizard. When it was around, Ares Wizard allowed you to choose from 100’s of builds in a long list, all with working links 100% of the time.

Whilst all the Kodi Builds below where tested on a PC, it’s likely they will work on all devices including Laptops, Windows 10, Amazon Fire Sticks, Raspberry Pi’s and any android boxes that you own. The latest Kodi Version is 17.6, and these builds work on this latest version and any older versions of Kodi Krypton. We do these lists each month, and recently did 5 of the Best Kodi Builds for April 2018.

Whilst this list uses a number system, they don’t represent how good each build is. You can try each one for yourself. For more Kodi content, check out our Kodi Guides area. 

IPVanish - The Best Kodi VPN

Before we start

PwrDown highly recommends you use a VPN when using Kodi. IPVanish is one of the only top tier VPNs and it’s tailored specifically for Kodi users. It works on almost all devices including the Amazon Fire Stick. As stated on their site, using IPVanish will:
  • Mask your IP Address & Hide your streaming habits.
  • Prevent your ISP from spying on you.
  • Make your online presence anonymous.
  • Allow access to blocked add-ons & content from other countries.

CellarDoor TV Kodi Builds

Kodi CellarDoor TV Builds | Installation instructions and preview
CellarDoor TV is a good looking build with it’s own unique design. It uses the Aeon Nox skin, and makes good use of navigation with a sub-menu and spotlight feature above the main menu. This build has section for apps, kids movies and TV shows, movies, music, sports, TV Pro and TV Shows. Originally, CellarDoor TV was installed through the Ares Wizard. However this isn’t the case anymore since Ares Wizard was taken down by the developers.

Kirks Kodi Build

Kodi Kirks Build | Installation instructions and preview
The Kirks Build has been around for a long time, it’s great build which is packed with content, provided by many different add-ons. It has sections for Movies, TV Shows, Sports, Kids, Documentaries, Music, Video on demand, all in one and add-ons. It uses the Aeon Nox skin, but it’s been customized to match the green style from the rest of the skin. It’s a build that still works as of February 2018!

Man Cave Build

Kodi’s Man Cave Build is another one that’s been around for a while. I recently updated the installation instructions for it to reflect on the new URL. The fact that it’s still going strong after almost a year shows the developers dedication, as it has remained updated after all this time.

Misfit Mods Kodi Build

Misfit Mods is another repository that holds multiple Kodi builds. The one on the image above though is of a build called ‘HardNox’. However Misfit Mods also includes HardNox Krypton, HardNox Jarvis, Kids Room, Fiesta, ALS Flix, AM Smooth and Climaxxx.

Zero Tolerance Kodi Builds

Kodi Zero Tolerance Builds | Installation instructions and preview
There are a few Kodi Builds available from Zero Tolerance, although the one we tested was Kryptikz ZT Edition. Kryptikz also runs quite fast, so it should run fine of Amazon Fire Sticks and android boxes. The Zero Tolerance Builds have categories for Cartoons, Documentary Zone, Explore, Movies, Music, My Lists, Recent, Sports, System and TV Shows.

Maverick Build

Kodi Zero Tolerance Builds | Installation instructions and preview
Whilst I can confirm this build is still working on the latest version of Kodi, I haven’t gotten around to testing it out since it’s been updated. During my last review, it had categories for At the flix, Black Hat, BOB, Elysium, Exodus, FTFA, Maverick TV, Programs, Project D, The Pyramid, Silent Hunter, Skynet, Stream Hub, System and UK Turk Playlists.

Fire TV Guru

Kodi Fire TV Guru Build | Installation instructions and preview
Getting into it, Fire TV Guru is a great build for content. It has categories for Maintenance, System, Movies, TV Shows, All in one, IVue Guide, Kids Corner, Sports Center, Music, Misc and Her Place. The Fire TV Guru build uses the Aeon Nox skin, which we are all very familiar with now. As its name suggests, it’s a good choice for smaller devices like Amazon’s Fire Stick.

CosmicSaints Kodi Builds

All these builds have a great design, and deserve to be in this list for May 2018.

Durex Build

Kodi Durex Build | Installation instructions and preview
Durex has a sleek design, and is also quite fast when it comes to navigation. It’s been around for a long time, the screenshot above shows I took it in June 2017, so it may look a little different now. Meanwhile, it has sections for Addons, Family, Fire TV, Misc 1, Misc 2, Movies, Music, Paid TV, Sports, System and TV Shows. It’s one of the more popular choices, and always has been due to its reliability.

No Limits Kodi Build

Kodi No Limits Build | Installation instructions and preview
The No Limits build is one of the more popular choices right now, that’s why we’ve given it the top spot for May 2018! A great feature of this build is the choices you receive when installing it. You can install this build with OR without adult content (XXX). A FireStick ready build is available, so it runs well on those smaller devices like the Amazon FireStick and Raspberry Pi. This build has section for Live TV, More, Movies, Music, Networks, Power, Sanctuary, Sports, System, Tools, TV Shows, UK Turk Playlists and XXX.
