How to install Kodi on the Apple TV with xcode

I’ve been asked to provide a guide to install kodi on the Apple TV using XCode, (please note xcode is only available on MAC). This guide is originally from IDB and we have modified some parts you can find the original article here.


Step 1: Download the latest Kodi.deb file, the iOS App Signer, (save both to desktop and unzip the iOS App Signer) and make sure you have Xcode 7 installed.

Step 2: Connect your Apple TV to your Mac using a USB Type-C cable.

Step 3: Launch Xcode →

Step 4: Click Create a new Xcode Project then select Application under tvOS then Single View Application, and click Next.

Step 5: In the Product name field, insert a unique name such as KodiforAppleTV4 and then click Next then click Create

Step 6: Under the Team drop down box, select your personal team, and click the Fix Issue button to resolve provisioning issues. You will need to ensure that you are signed into Xcode with a free Apple developer account. You can learn how to do that using the IDB tutorial.

Step 7: Ensure that your Apple TV is selected in the destination menu at the top of the screen. You can also click Product → Destination, and select Apple TV.

Step 8: Minimize Xcode and open the iOS App Signer.

Step 9: Click Browse on the iOS App Signer and select the Kodi.deb nightly file from the desktop.

Step 10: Select your Apple ID in the iOS App Signer’s Signing Certificate box.

Step 11: Select the Project name/bundle identifier you just created in Xcode in iOS App Signer’s Provisioning Profile box.

Step 12: Click Start in the bottom right-hand corner of the iOS App Signer, and the .IPA file for Kodi will be built and saved to the desktop.

Step 13: Open Xcode → Window → Devices and select the Apple TV

Step 14: Click the ‘+’ sign and select the .IPA file from the desktop and click Open. Kodi will now be deployed to your Apple TV

Step 15: You should now see the Kodi app on your Apple TV’s Home screen.

You are now all set to enjoy kodi you can install add on’s to kodi we have some listed on our site.
