Sorry it’s been a while since i have posted but unfortunately life has a way of getting in the way of our passions . Today I’m going to give you my top 5 Kodi Jarvis Skins .With the skinning changes that came in Jarvis we have less skins to choose from but still plenty of options for making our personal builds look awesome .
I used very similar back grounds in a few of the screenshots so it’s easier to compare the skins. Keep in mind what I like you may not and vice versa . My own personal opinion is to not use builds but learn how to create your own . It’s actually very easy, contrary to what some builders will tell you .Creating your own build allows you to only use the add-ons that you use the most, thus cutting down the size of your builds . Don’t get me wrong there are some great builds out there Like Wookie and OfficialChiefUK .
This skin brings back one of the greatest skinners ever ,Mudislander. He brought you CCM (custom confluence mod )
There is a lot of customization options with Hybrid including font colors,highlight colors,backgrounds and fonts etc.
You can create sub menu’s and widgets . Although Widgets at the moment seem limited to defaults within the skin. Great Job Mudislander. Welcome Back
#4 Unity -Available in Kodi official repository.
The Unity Skin by Bumpeneer is a very simple but pretty awesome skin. It is designed to provide a unique option to Confluence .It uses very little resources so great for low power devices like the pi .
Unity supports single background options,sub-menu’s,color changes to font’s and highlights
#3 Mimic by Bryan Brazil or @Braz available in the official Kodi repository.
I love this skin I really do . The customization level is off the chart . Vertical,horizontal and upper menu available .Endless color choices for font and highlights . Widget and sub-menu support.This skin takes a lot from Aeon Nox and Refocus.
Pressing down on remote brings up sub-menu’s. Pressing up brings up widgets .
#2 Phenomenal by Tomer953 available in the official Kodi repository .
For help customizing it please see my previous blog Here
Similar to the Mimic skin Phenomenal skin has almost infinite amount of customization’s available .
Menu’s can be made virtually transparent so you can see the backgrounds you put so much work into .
Side click brings out sub-menu tab and back click brings out widgets.
With multiple home screen options it’s all up to you how it looks .
My Favorite Home screen is the Netflix 2 but there are many different menu options .
These days a search on YouTube for Kodi skins brings up a plethora of Kodi builds but not skins. This can be very frustrating for people like me who don’t want to use a build . So get out there and create your own builds.Stay tuned for more
