    1. Skin update doesn’t work and you have to manually activate the desired repo’s, but then it works quite good.
      Keep or install confluence and just do small adjusts. You can use kodi-remote when kodi is running, so do your test.

  1. Hello Luis I have paid for a developer account and Kodi keeps on expiring after 7 days can you please help thanks

    1. I had the same issue when I was first installing with a paid developer account but it was because Xcode and IOS signer was still picking up my temporary developer account. If you hover over the different provisioning options, it will show the expiration dates. After tinkering with the different options, I was finally able to connect my paid account to the Kodi install. I hope this helps and makes sense.

  2. There is no Kodi tvOS file to download on the links – any ideas as to why, or where it can be downloaded from??

        1. I would warn against it because you never know if they were modified with malware. Always get them from official source which is what I provide a link to.

  3. HI – I dont have any option under “Identity” re Fix Issue – and on my version of Xcode (8.2) it has a “Signing” Tab? When I go to load my Team under the Signing tab (my apple ID) it says that it failed to create a provisioning profile?. I have another error message saying that no profiles were found?

  4. I am having problems with the IOS signer. It does allow me to select the provisioning profile before I hit the start button but instead shows “re-sign only”. Once I save the project and then try to install it on Apple TV it states that there is no valid signing profile. Help?

  5. I’m having issues with mine. I have a paid developer provisioning profile and all of a sudden it’s giving me “a valid provisioning profile is not found” error. And actually even my old temporary ones aren’t working anymore. What’s the next step?

  6. Luis, Hi. Thanks for posting your helpful videos. Everything worked, installed the latest update Kodi 17. Now, when I want to install Exodus or other add-ons, it says ‘failed to install a dependency’ or simply ‘installation failed’. I cant install any add-on. Installing repositories is no problem though… Can you help me out here? Thanks!!

    1. I am receiving the same error. I would say wait it out because there’s a few things going on in the Kodi scene as far as law suits etc. So a lot of add-ons have been taken offline.

  7. com.lbtechtips.kodi17 cannot fix the “Failed to create provisioning profile.
    The app ID “com.lbtechtips.kodi17″ cannot be registered to your development team. Change your bundle identifier to a unique string to try again”

  8. I have a developer account and am getting this issue “app installation failed, internal api error”. Any suggestions on what I am doing wrong, I have followed your video tutorial. Thanks in advance and good job Luis

    1. I don’t know how to fix it since it has always worked for me. Usually if I have a problem I research a solution and report back but it has always worked. I’m not an expert in this matter.

  9. I keep getting the same two error messages no matter what I put in between com. and .kodi17. Could I be doing something else wrong?
