So, you did too many changes to Kodi and don’t like what you got? Let’s see how to start from scratch (which means everything will be brand new : addons, library paths, etc.).
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
- Turn off Kodi
- 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)
- Delete the whole folder
- 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
- Exit Kodi
- Run Finder and browse to : /Users/<your_user_name>/Library/Application Support/Kodi/
- Delete the userdata folder
- Start Kodi
