Screwed your Kodi config? Start from scratch!

All you Kodi config is stored in a specific folder. In order to start with a clean Kodi setup, all you have to do is find this folder and delete it (while Kodi is NOT running), then start Kodi again.

Step by step process

  1. Turn off Kodi
  2. Thanks to your operating system (Mac, Linux, Windows, Android) file browser, navigate to the correct location (location depends on operating systems and can be found right here)
  3. Delete the whole folder
  4. Start Kodi, and enjoy the fresh start

NB : in some case, eg. Windows, you might have to enable the option to show Hidden ans System files / folders.

A Mac OS example

  1. Exit Kodi
  2. Run Finder and browse to : /Users/<your_user_name>/Library/Application Support/Kodi/
  3. Delete the userdata folder
  4. Start Kodi
