Restoring a Kodi Backup or Kodi Build (16.1 Jarvis or Below)


Once you already have your Kodi backup transferred to the device which you wish to restore to, our Indigo tool will handle the rest. Regardless of what’s on your Kodi backup or Kodi build, or how it was made, you’ll have no problem restoring it using this process.

It should be noted that using Kodi backups or Kodi builds that originate from unknown sources is quite risky, they could potentially contain trojan viruses, malicious coding, or Kodi addons from untrustworthy sources. You’ll also want to avoid restoring more than one backup over another.
