Upgrade to Kodi 16.1 and Install Wookie – New Source


Upgrade to Kodi 16.1 and Install Wookie – New Source


As of 14/09/2016: There is now a new source for the Wookie.


If  you are not aware of the fact that now that Kodi is going forward then so do the builds within the Kodi world.

If you are a user of the Wookie Builds then now you have to be running 16.1 Kodi or higher.  If you are running anything lower than this and you do an update from the Wookie Wizard. You may not get all the features of the build.

Wookie Lite, Wookie Retro, Wookie New Look.


Also if you install from the Community Build Section then there are builds in there also that wont RUN on anything less than 16.1 (Mine included).

Having noticed on the social media sites this afternoon on Match day 1 of the EPL, I noticed that there there were a few people asking why they were not getting certain features in there Wookie build once they had updated.

Well this is the answer to 95% off you.


So for those of you who are running anything less than 16.1 then this is the guide for you as I’m going to show you how to…
