Hi every here i am going to show you how to customize kodi 17.0 krypton menu items so you can get kodi setup how you would like it, In this guide i am going to show you a few steps to get you up and running with custom menus, add widgets to your main menu to give you an idea on how to set it up with online movies, online tv shows menu options them from there you will get an idea on how to play and customize the setup to your needs and how you would like it.

First off i would like to say thanks for visiting my site and hope you have fun and go on to create bigger and better setups from this guide, we all have our little ways in how we like to use kodi and how we like it setup for our own usage

Check out and follow me on Twitter


Ok guys here we go so if you are ready this will take a little while to complete but worth it in the end and the more you play with the setting up of your devices the easier things get and the more you will come to enjoy and play more, creating better setups for your self rather than set to a build, NOT that there is anything wrong with a build ( i just don't like or use them due to not knowing how they have been setup and what uses what ) the best solution is to setup and get use to the system and how it works your self this way when/if something breaks YOU the user/designer of your setup knows how to fix it yourself.

Ok guys here we go let start of by what we are going to need, we are going to need the below files so click and download them first and take notice where they are saved, they are usually saved in your download folder.
