How to Remove Upgrade NoticeThis article will be split between Krypton with no build and Krypton with a build installed, the Durex Build. Both versions will be on Krypton 17.6. Now at time of publishing Leia, the new name for Krypton 18, is yet to be released in Beta format. But when it does, expect this notification to be just as annoying as it was in Krypton 17.1 to 17.6. Please note, this can be done in most if not all Forks of Kodi as well.
Krypton/ No buildAfter opening Kodi, move the cursor over Add-ons, then move to the top row and select My add-ons. Click Services to continue. Scroll to the bottom of the list and select Version Check. So far so good right ?
DisablingSelect Configure to continue. Finally, the last step is to select Enable Kodi version check? Clicking anywhere in the blue area as shown in the photo will do the trick. As you can see it is now disabled, but in order to complete the process you must select OK. Failure to do so will not set the changes made. It is also recommended to reboot Kodi to ensure the changes are locked in.
Krypton with Build installed
DisablingOnce you open the Services section, scroll down to Version Check and click. Great work so far, but just a few more steps and you're done. Click on Configure. For this example, I left the Version Check enabled. Click anywhere in the highlighted area to disable. The red dot to the right will dim, indicating it has been disabled. But wait ! please don't forget to click on OK or all this work will be for nothing. Rebooting Kodi may be necessary.
This was a simple set on instructions to follow but for some it does give some relief from seeing that annoying upgrade notification. Personally, I hated it, annoying to say the least. While I understand why it is there, I didn't need the constant daily reminder. Have anymore questions that need answering? please join us in Ares Project Forum.
