With a barrage of new Kodi builds hitting the internet, choosing the right one can be somewhat difficult. As each build tends to overwrite the default Kodi look and feel as well as any previous builds, it’s worth spending a bit of time up front understanding what is included before you spend the time and effort installing it on your device.
Some are too heavy or too slow or simply incompatible with your favorite add-on so they are easy to discard.
Misfit Mod Lite Kodi Build is a great fit for most devices especially for Amazon Firestick because of its lightweight nature and speed. It has great versatility with different options from its own Misfit repository including the original build (500+ MB), the lite version and one designed for women.
Misfit Mod Lite is loaded with popular Kodi add-ons such as:
- ESPN 3,
- Project M,
- The Pyramid,
- MP3 Stream,
- SpinzFlix, and
- BoB Unleashed among others.
Protect your Identity when using Kodi
A VPN is crucial for this and other Kodi builds as while Kodi itself is 100% legitimate, many of the add-ons included with Misfit Mod Lite and other Kodi builds are not. While in most cases the add-ons do not host the content themselves, you can definitely run into issues with your ISP when you use them.
As you might already know, net neutrality laws were recently changed to allow Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to filter and collect your data without the users’ consent. Streaming copyrighted content can get you in trouble with the law and a number of Kodi users have received warnings due to this. Additionally, the ISPs can block you from accessing certain content which results in Kodi errors and connection throttling.
VPNs help protect you from this situation. A VPN creates a virtual tunnel between your device and the server you are accessing. Information sent through this tunnel is completely encrypted and secure. It’s impossible for your ISP or anyone else to determine what you are doing over the link.
Another advantage to VPNs though is that they help mask your location. You’ve probably encountered a situation online where you try to access certain content and you receive an error message stating that the content you’re trying to access is not available in your country?
This is called geoblocking or georestrictions. It happens when content providers restrict access based on a specific geography which is often quite arbitrary. As an example Netflix in the USA blocked access to Star Trek: Discovery as CBS was trying to force American’s to purchase a subscription to their pay service. In the rest of the world though, this same show was available through your Netflix account! With a VPN you can actually connect to a server in another country and make it appear as if that is where you are actually based.
When selecting a VPN, IPVanish is a great option for Kodi users to protect their identity, privacy and streaming freedom. It is compatible with all Kodi builds and improves performance due to its high speed infrastructure.
As the name suggests, IPVanish hides your IP address with its 1000+ anonymous servers in 60+ countries. This means regional/ geo-restrictions won’t apply, allowing you unlimited access to content. Other perks include 5 simultaneous device usage, no traffic logs, unlimited bandwidth and server switching. In addition to all of these features though, all of our readers get a 20% discount from the standard rate with IPVanish simply by clicking the link! You really cannot afford to miss this deal!
How to Install Misfit Mod Lite
- First and foremost, we need to enable ‘Unknown Sources’ installation since Kodi, by default, doesn’t accept unofficial builds and add-ons. To do this, open the Home Page and click on the ‘gear’ (settings) icon on the top-left screen. After this, open ‘System Settings’ > ‘Add-ons’ from the left sidebar. Toggle the ‘Unknown Sources’ option on and click ‘Yes’ on the warning pop-up.
- Now that that’s done, go back to the Kodi ‘Home Screen’ and click the ‘gear’ icon to open the settings. Double click on ‘File Manager’ and click the ‘Add Source’ option from the following menu. This will open a pop-up window with two text fields; select <None> from the first and enter the URL http://misfitmods.com/mmwiz/repo/ when asked for a website path. Enter ‘Misfit’ as the media source on the bottom text field and click OK to add a new media source.
- Navigate back to the Home screen and open ‘Add-ons’ > ‘Install from zip file’ which will open a pop-up window; scroll down and select ‘Misfit’ from the menu. Next, click on ‘repository.misfitmods.zip’ and wait for a pop-up informing you that ‘Misfit Mod Repository Enabled’.
- Still on the ‘Add-on browser’ menu, choose ‘Install from Repository’ > ‘Misfitmods Repository’. Next, open ‘Program Add-ons’ > ‘Misfits Mod Wizard’ and hit the ‘Install’ A pop-up window will appear with a message that ‘Misfit Mods Wizard’ is enabled.
- If you’re not automatically prompted to go to the Builds menu, navigate back to ‘Program Add-ons’ and open the newly created MisfitMod wizard. On the subsequent list, locate ‘Misfit Mods Builds’ and open it. A list of different builds will appear from which you should pick the ‘Misfit Mod Lite Build’. You might get an option to return configuration to defaults; click ‘Continue’ which will ask you to select either a ‘Standard install’ or ‘Clean (Fresh) install’. Choose the latter if you want to discard existing add-ons or ‘Standard install’ to keep add-ons. Hit the ‘Yes install’ button and when the download and installation finishes, click ‘Force close’ to finish.
