Ares Wizard Not Working – Get Newest Working Addons for Kodi

September 2018 Update

Ares Wizard is not working because it has been shut down. None of the add-ons from Ares Wizard are updated or working correctly. The newest way to download the best Kodi video add-ons is with GitHub Browser. Most developers are moving to this method to avoid being shut down, not to mention it works great.

Follow our new article here for How to Install Git Browser on Kodi

The following method for installing Ares Wizard no longer works because Ares Wizard has been shut down.

    I know this is isn’t for games but thank you in advance..i really want to get the snes emulator

    • Rand Frisch says:

      As of currently, the Android games on Ares Wizard seem to be broken. I’ll update once they fix it.

    I get to Install from zip file but can’t highlight OK

  3. Toto says:

    Which addon is for free looking netflix?

    • John says:

      1Channel, Exodus and Covenant are the best add-ons for watching content from netflix. Anything that is on Netflix is on those add-ons. There’s not currently a Netflix hack to use their service for free. But you don’t need that anyway. Just search and watch it on the video add-ons.

  4. Thank you for your help
