Kodi can be installed on almost any device, e.g. Firestick, Fire Cube, Nvidia Shield, Android box, Chromecast, phones, tablets, PC and more. However, Kodi cannot be installed from the Amazon app store. To install it on a Firestick, it must be sideloaded.

Why Remove a Kodi Addon?

In the long run, there may be several reasons why you would want to remove or uninstall a Kodi addon. Once you’ve used an addon, you may decide that you don’t like it. You could find that there are other addons you prefer instead. In that case, you will want to remove it.

Many unnecessary or unused addons can take up a lot of storage space on your device, particularly if you use a Firestick, which does not come with masses of internal space.

Furthermore, you could be experiencing issues with an addon, perhaps because it’s not quite functioning as well or as fast as it used to. Or you’re getting errors as well as no links. It could be that the addon needs an update or a refresh, so removing it and adding it again could help to resolve issues like these.

It could also be that the addon isn’t updating correctly; this could happen due to the addon developer changing the repository location. In that case, you must install the addon using the new repository. Otherwise, you won’t be able to receive important updates.
