Last Updated on 9 months by Amelia Johansson

In this guide, you will learn how to install Genesis Reborn Addon on Kodi within a few minutes just by following these simple steps. Don’t forget to read the guide till the end otherwise if you skip any step you may get some errors and be unable to install.

But before we move to the installation guide we have to first understand what this Addon is for. Because some of you might not aware of this Add-on and haven’t heard it before. As for the old users, you may understand it just by reading the name.

What is Genesis Reborn

Genesis Reborn is the new or updated version of Genisis Video Add-on, this was shut down completely before along with Exodus, Elysium, and some others. After some time it repairs with the name that we know now and just like before it provides Movies, TV Shows, Cartoons, Documentaries, and many more.

This is one of the best and most popular add-ons of that time as it scraps links way faster than others. Even though all the links were extremely fast and provided their users with no buffering streaming experience. But somehow due to a copyright issue or something, it was taken now.

But today we can still use it to watch free Movies, TV Shows, etc, but the problem is you may not get that performance now. After getting shut down the developers aren’t working much to make it faster so you can keep it optional. If you really want to watch some free content then just check out the list of Best Addons for Kodi and get from there.

Genesis Kodi not working

After installing Genesis many people have reported that it is not working so far I am going to describe some of the easiest solutions that you can try. All of these are working fine at certain places so it depends on which issue you are facing.

So, here are some instructions you need to follow if Genesis Kodi not working:

Use a VPN: Using a VPN with Genesis doesn’t only help you to work again but also keeps your IP address safe and secure. While you surf anything on the internet your ISP provider can still see what you are streaming or browsing so if they see you stream a lot then they can even restrict the internet and make it slow.

However, in some cases, these third-party apps or Addons offer links to torrent or pirated files that can lead to legal problems. If you haven’t installed any VPN yet then here is the list of some best VPNs that will surely help you out. Best and Cheapest VPNs Reviews

Keep Addon Up To Date: Keeping any Addon or application up to date is another thing that can avoid this problem. Because sometimes developers update the app with the new version and discontinue the older one which later stops working.

At this point, you are highly recommended to keep everything updated so you never face this problem again. For this you can simply enable auto-update by going to Settings > Addons > My Addons > Video Addons> Genesis Reborn > now enable AutoUpdate from below menu.

Uninstall & Reinstall: In another case, if both of these methods aren’t working then you should try to uninstall and reinstall it once. It is because in most of the cases due to some errors the Addons don’t receive any update and it remains the old version.

In this way when you uninstall it and reinstall it again there is no doubt you receive the latest version. Even though having a fresh Addon is also the best choice as I usually delete the old installed and reinstall them again. You should also try this and there are 50/50 chances that it will solve the not working issue.


This is the easiest guide on how to install Genesis Reborn Addon on Kodi within a few minutes. I hope everyone understands the steps that I have mentioned below as these are quite simple. For the old users of Kodi, it is not a big deal but for the new users, this may be a little bit confusing.

That’s why I have attached the screenshot below each step so that new or old users can follow it and get success in installing it as well.

Somehow if you are still having any issues or wanted to ask a question then feel free to comment down below. I would be very glad to hear from you and will be happy to help my visitors. So, if you find this article helpful don’t forget to share it with others so they can also get help from it.
