In this guide, I will demonstrate how to install Exodus Redux and Exodus 8.0 addons on Kodi. You can install these addons on FireStick, Android & iOS mobile devices, Linux, Mac & Windows computers, and other Kodi platforms.
Exodus has been one of the most popular Kodi addons. It has been around for a few years now. The addon used to work really well but was abandoned by its original developers. It was later revived by another team of developers, though it doesn’t work as great as it used to. The original Exodus is available by the name Exodus v8.0 at present.
Several clones of Exodus have spawned in the past. Only a few stood out. Exodus Redux is one of them. You can say that now there are two variants of Exodus Kodi addon – Exodus V8 (basically Exodus itself) and Exodus Redux.
Without any element of doubt, I will say that Exodus Redux works way better than Exodus V8. There is a very active team of developers behind it. The addon is regularly maintained. It uses top-notch scrapers that fetch the best streaming links available on the web.
The fate of the original Exodus still hangs in balance. Only very recently (as I write this guide) it became non-functional as its repository was shut down. It is back on through a new server link. Users are still looking for Exodus. Therefore, I will cover the installation process of Exodus V8 as well. However, of course, I will first start with Exodus Redux as it is superior and makes more sense.
How to Install Exodus Redux and Exodus 8.0 on Kodi
Before installing any of these two addons, please make sure you have allowed the installation of the third-party Kodi addons. If you are not sure what I am talking about, follow these steps:
#1. After launching Kodi, on the home-screen you need to open Settings. For this, look in the top-left and click the gear icon
#2. Now when you are here, open System settings (if you happen to have Kodi 17.6, click System instead)

Now you want to go to the right side of the same window and make sure the option Unknown Sources is enabled by clicking the toggle next to it

You are now all set to start streaming. However, before you do, I would like to warn you that your online identity is unprotected and everything you stream is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, watching free movies, TV shows, Live TV, Sports might get you into legal trouble.
Most Kodi users are nowadays using a Kodi VPN to hide their IP from anyone who might be tracking you including your ISP and Government. I always connect ExpressVPN on all my streaming devices and I suggest you do the same.
ExpressVPN is the fastest and most secure VPN. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it freely for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance, you can ask for the full refund.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of the copyright laws. A VPN should be used to protect your privacy, not for streaming pirated content.
So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here's how to get a VPN protection in 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your device.
Step 3: Open ExpressVPN app and Click the Power icon to connect a VPN server.
That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.

Quick Overview and Comparison of Exodus V8 & Exodus Redux Kodi Addons
Let’s first quickly see how to access these addons. You will find them in the Video add-ons section. To access it go to your Kodi home-screen and click Add-ons. Next, select Video add-ons on the left. On the right, you will find the add-on icon.
Here are the screenshots of the main-screen of both addons:
As you see, there isn’t a lot to choose between the two in terms of categories. Exodus Redux has three additional categories, Documentaries, Scraper Settings, and Info, while it does not include Channels category present in Exodus V8.
Both these add-ons allow Real-Debrid and Trakt integration.
However, there is a world of difference when it comes to streaming capabilities. Exodus Redux Kodi addon uses one of the most powerful sets of scrapers called OpenScrapers. Exodus V8 still relies on regular scrapers.
Both these add-ons feature further subcategories which sort the content appropriately.
Undeniably, Exodus Redux is the clear winner here. Redux is new and more effective. V8, on the other hand, is still hanging by a thread. Both offer a big library of movies and TV shows. However, Exodus Redux is better at streaming. You could install and try both and be your own judge. They are free.
