Ares Wizard. New, bigger, faster servers, rewritten code, new build hosts, new zip hosts, its been a complete rebuild from the ground up.
Ares Wizard Updates
Its important to note that the Ares Wizard can run without its servers (they may go down in the future), but it then loses some of its functions, such as Add on & repository installs, and only 200 builds to choose from; it does retain all its maintenance and tweaking functions in this mode, so still very useful.
This add on is “unofficial” and therefore not supported by Kodi TV or XBMC foundation, please do not ask on their forums for help, goto ares-project.uk for further support.
You can unblock many “dns censored” sources with a smartdns solution
If you use p2p add ons, torrents, or in countries that prohibit streaming use a vpn from a reputable provider like Private Internet Access.
Android Games & Apps
These return in the update too, using their own server to improve the availability, but these are going to be hammered, so expect slow downloads at peak times. if you need help and guidance, there’s a new section on the Ares Forum – Gaming
Multiple Builds – One Device
This is now VERY easy to do, Ares Wizard now includes several version of the Kodi app, installing these will allow you to add a build to each (currently seven available), each will come with Ares Wizard pre-installed to speed up grabbing a build. Just take note – a ot of devices, including many boxes have quite small storage – throwing on 4 or 5 builds will eat up space fast… be careful.
