There are thousands of Kodi Add-ons and Builds released by third-party developers but only a few out of them get attention from the Kodi users. But, I am pretty sure that you must get to know about Ares Wizard before.
Ares Wizard was the game-changer for Kodi users. It's known for great video and program add-ons that provide Kodi tweaking and better streaming experience collectively.
There was a great collection of video add-ons that provides amazing content, that too free of cost. Later, it came to the authorities' eye and the repository was shut down by the developer.
But, once again Ares Wizard is live to serve Kodi users. However, some changes are made by the developer to keep this Kodi Wizard live and we'll discuss it later.
Here we are going to talk about the installation process of Ares Wizard for Kodi. I'm writing the complete process to install Ares Kodi Wizard for Firestick and Android TV Box users.
The same process also works for Android Phones, Tablets, Windows PC, etc. Because Kodi provides a similar interface for all the devices.
If you want to get Ares Wizard on Kodi, read this complete step-by-step guide…
How To Install Ares Wizard on Kodi?
Do you want to download and install Ares Wizard for Kodi? Follow these steps on your device-
1- Launch Kodi
First of all, you need to go to your Apps list and launch Kodi. Firestick users can go to Settings> Applications> Manage Installed Applications> Show App> Select Kodi> Launch. Or you can simply press the Home button and Firestick remote and go to Your Apps and Games list> select See All> then select Kodi to launch.

At the bottom corner of your TV screen, you'll find a System option. Using your remote, select that option.
4- Select Add-ons
A similar interface as given below will on your TV. Select Add-ons option from the left navigation.
5- Select Unknown sources
By default, Kodi keeps this option disabled to prevent third-party installation. But, I'm sure only official add-ons are not enough for you. So, in order to install unofficial addons for Kodi, you need to enable Unknown sources on your device.
6- Select Yes
You could find a Warning popup on your device screen. If you use a secure VPN and install the add-ons from a trusted source, you won't face any issue. So, ignore this popup and select Yes to continue.
7- Go back and Select File Manager
Just press the back button on your Firestick remote or Backspace button on your PC to see this screen. Select File Manager option to enter the repository details.
8- Select Add source
Here you need to add a file source to install any third-party addon. Click/Select Add source option.
9- Select <None>
You can see an empty file source. Select the <None> option to enter the media source address.
10- Enter a Source URL
Here you need to enter the Kodi Repository address (Media Source) from where you want to install that add-on. I'm entering the repository source of Ares Wizard and here it's located – http://areswizard.co.uk/ and then select OK.
11- Enter a Source Name
In order to recognize in later steps, I'm naming it as – Ares Wizard. But, you can enter anything here. I generally put the Addon or Repository name as Media Source Name for understanding.
12- Save Media Source
I recommend you, review this again. Make sure you entered the correct URL in the box and remember the source name. Select OK to save it.
13- Go back and Select Add-ons
Once again, press the Back button on Firestick remote or Backspace key on your PC keyboard. Select Add-ons option from here.
14- Select Install from zip file
You'll get a screen like this on your device. Here you'll see several options. Select Install from zip file to go further.

If you remember, In Step #11, I asked to enter a media source name that you can recognize later. So, select the source folder to find out the repository file. I'll choose Ares Wizard here because I entered this name during adding a media source.
16- Select the Zip File
Here you can see a Zip file for Ares Wizard installation. Select script.areswizard-x.x.xx.zip to install on your device. Here X.X.XX is the current version of that repository. You may see a different version once the developer updates it.
