How to: Update Kodi to version 17, Krypton

If you're looking to update Kodi to version 17, Krypton, you clearly already know what Kodi is and what it's good for. By keeping your Kodi-enabled devices up to date, you can ensure you're never locked out of your favourite apps, builds or left stranded by a crushing security hole.

On some formats, updating Kodi can be a little bit of a hassle – especially as others stay up to date with little to no fuss. Thankfully, with a spare five minutes or so, you can have Kodi running on blazing-fast version 17 Krypton with ease

How to update Kodi: Android

Updating Kodi to it’s latest version on an Android-enabled device is an absolute doddle.

For one, make sure your device can connect to the internet and has access to the Google Play Store. If you have automatic updates enabled, Kodi will update itself to Krypton

If automatic updates aren’t turned on, head to the Google Play Store and navigate to Kodi or the “My Apps” panel. Click “Update” and Kodi will begin to update on the Android device of your choice.

Remember, to get Kodi on Chromecast, updating your Android version of Kodi will also update the Chromecast build.

How to update Kodi: Windows 10 and Mac OS X

Putting the latest version of Kodi on your Windows 10 or Mac computer is incredibly easy.

While you can’t simply update Kodi from within Kodi, simply downloading and running the Krypton executable will overwrite your Kodi installation with a fresh one. Not bad.

How to update Kodi: Amazon Fire TV Stick

Having the latest version of Kodi on your Amazon Fire TV or Fire TV Stick requires you to first format your Fire TV, and then go through the motions of re-installing Kodi onto the device.

How to update Kodi: Raspberry Pi

Updating Kodi on Raspberry Pi isn’t ideal. Whereas you can simply update the software on Android, Mac or Windows, for Pi you’ll need to completely wipe your Pi SD card and install Jarvis fresh.

How to update Kodi: Linux

Of all the formats you can install Kodi on, Linux makes it the easiest to update.

When a new version of Kodi is released just perform a general system/package or open terminal and type:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade

If that doesn’t work, which can be the case when additional packages are required, open terminal and use the below command:

Sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
