The Ares is a wonderful Kodi Wizard, providing you tons of tools and access to a variety of builds and add-ons to install.

In this tutorial, we’ll be focusing particulaly on how to to install builds from the Ares Wizard. First, we’ll have to install the Ares Wizard onto your Kodi media player, then access their builds section. Once you found a build you like to install, it will require a pin to access the download page of that particular build.

Getting the pin is relatively simply, requiring you to go to a webpage that a random generated pin number on it. You can access it by selecting get pin when you select the build or using another device on the same network and accessing this webpage. http://bit.ly/getbuildpin
