Ares Wizard Install Guide

Since Kodi is open source, users can easily change the look and feel of their installation. A very popular way to do this, is through the use of wizards. These are program add-ons that make it simple for users to install skins, change builds, or even tweak some of the files they already have. One of the most popular is called the Ares Wizard. It has quite a few good features, including some great builds. We’ll talk more about that shortly.

A word of caution though, this add-on is banned and is not officially recognized by the Kodi team. Don’t go to their website and post questions about the wizard, or mention it in their forums please, they will not be able to answer them. Ares Wizard includes some banned builds as well.
