The TDB Wizard project has been taken over by the Echo team. As such it now referred to as Echo Wizard. The source URL has changed so please see our Echo Wizard guide to install the popular addon.
In the Kodi community, there are several ways to get builds or add-ons. One way is through the use of wizards. One of these programs is called the TDB Wizard. The site hosts higher end builds for computers, and lower end builds for devices like the Amazon Fire Stick. There is no reason that you should be stuck with the default skin on the fire stick just because of the limitations. In this review, we will show you how to install the TDB Wizard, and then a little about using it.

How to Use TDB Wizard to Install Builds
Now that you have the wizard installed, we thought we would show you how to use and install builds from the program. The screen below shows what you see when you launch the wizard. As you can see, there are a few different options that the TDB Wizard has, including the builds. Feel free to explore more on your own. We will choose TDB Builds.
Here, you have two options. The Jarvis Builds and the Krypton Builds. If you are running Isengard (15.2) or lower, we suggest upgrading. You can do that by checking out our guide for Jarvis (16.1) or Krypton on the main page of this site. Select whichever version you are running. We will select Jarvis here.
When you get in to this screen, there are wonderful builds, and they are very graphically pleasing. As you see in the image below, depending on what you are running Kodi on, you can have a few different versions of the build. The pop-up box below shows the regular Horus version, and what device it was designed for. This is an invaluable tool if you are running a Kodi Box or Amazon Fire TV Stick.
The version we are going to choose is the Horus XXL, since we are installing it on a PC. That build is designed for high end devices, and requires a quad core processor and 4 gb of ram. As you see here, the build is a fairly good size.
Once it completes, it will want to close Kodi. Go ahead and allow that. Now, open Kodi back up. What you will see now is whatever build you chose. The one below shows the Horus XXL build we mentioned.
And there you have it. A gorgeous build with easy to use features.
Note: The TDB Wizard is a banned add-on. This means that it is not supported by the XBMC/Kodi team and has been banned from mentioning on their forum. Even though the Kodi team doesn’t limit what you can or can’t install, they don’t want you to mention it on any of their websites. If you should need support for the TDB Wizard, there are ways mentioned inside of the Wizard.
First, a word of caution before you start watching anything. We strongly advise using a VPN with a kill switch feature. This will help you protect your privacy and allow you to get around any geo-restrictions you may see. It is important to take measures to protect yourself online now a days.
