The Ares Wizard has moved to a new URL. The old URL was and has now changed to (Updated 8/5/17)

The Ares Wizard Kodi is a multi-tool wizard that provides Kodi users the ability to install builds, third party Kodi addons, tweaks, backup and restore function, and so much more.

It’s probably the oldest wizard around that has lived through a series of events since the beginning of Kodi. You’ll be please that this wizard is consistently being updated and supported by their developers.

The Ares Wizard Kodi was seriously my first wizard I’ve ever installed for Kodi and that was quite some time ago, which hasn’t changed too much. It still offers the same awesome builds you can download and install. You’ll find a section just for third party add-ons, which is about a 15-20 addon list. The backup and restore function is great if you need to save your favorite build, along with any changes you may have made.

You’ll find some tweaks to make your Kodi media player run smoother on your device and some other useful tools to help diagnose or maintain Kodi.

In this Ares Wizard Kodi guide, we’ll show you the correct and updated Ares Wizard URL because they do the URL does change from time to time. Be sure to bookmark this page, if someday you need to re-check if the link has changed.

As of now, the Ares Wizard Kodi has moved to a new URL which is listed below.

The Ares Wizard also started a pin system where you would need to enter in order to install the builds listed. I believe this was a way to prevent box sellers from abuse, track amounts of downloads, and possibly monetization.

It’s relatively simply, you just need to select get pin. Get the code and enter it into the Enter Pin section. This will then allow you to enter the download page within the Ares Wizard in Kodi.
