SOLVED – No Limits Magic Build on Kodi 18.2 – “Failed to install add-on from zip file”

The newest release of Kodi 18.2 Leia is out.  But if you have been trying to install No Limits Magic Build on this version, you will quickly find out that the installation fails.  The error that everyone is getting is “Failed to install add-on from zip file”.  This can be frustrating if you just upgraded to the latest version of Kodi and now you are stuck.  Luckily there is a workaround that will get you up and running with No Limits Magic Build in no time.

The first thing you will need to do is to install Kodi 18.1.  ALWAYS start out with a fresh install of Kodi 18.1 for this workaround.  Once you have a fresh install of Kodi 18.1 Leia on your device, follow the normal installation steps to get No Limits Magic Build installed.

Installing No Limits Magic Build on Kodi 18.1 Leia

First, be sure you have your VPN ready to go.  You won’t necessarily need to use it when you are doing the install, but when you get ready to stream, you will want to get that connected up for the best experience.  It’s never been easier to get signed up to the fastest VPN on the planet.  IPVanish has extended an amazing offer to my readers here at

Now that you have that ready, let’s get on with the installation of No Limits Magic Build.

Here is a video I made if you prefer a video.  But the detailed instructions are below.

First, you need to install Kodi 18.  The easiest way to do this is by installing it from the Jailbreak App Vault.  If you don’t have that installed, then you can reference this article: How to Install the Jailbreak App Vault

Once you have Kodi 18 installed, then you can continue with the installation of No Limits Magic Build.

NOTE:  This tutorial assumes you have totally removed Kodi from your device and installed from scratch.  Preferably from the Jailbreak App Vault.  If you upgraded from 17.6 to 18.0 or have installed other builds in your Kodi installation, I cannot guarantee your success.

Open Kodi and from the home screen, click the small gear icon at the top left

Click on File Manager

Click on Add Source

Click where it says <NONE>

Enter one of the following URLs in the space provided and then click OK.

In this case, I typed

You can choose to change the name of the source by clicking in the space below.  In this case, it is already called “kodi”, so I’m just going to leave it named that.  Click OK at the bottom to add the source.

Go back to the Kodi home screen and scroll down to Add-ons and click on it.

Then click on the little box icon at the top left.

Click on Install from zip file.

You will be told that you need to turn on apps from unknown sources.  Click on Settings

Click to turn on Unknown sources.

You will be asked to confirm that you want to do this.  Click Yes

Now you will see that the setting is enabled.

Click the back button one click to go back to the add-on screen and click Install from zip file again.

This time the file manager will come up and you will want to select the source you added earlier. Click it.

Then click on the zip file you want to install.

The zip file will install and you will see a message that says the No Limits Wizard 18 was installed.

Then the wizard will automatically run.  You will first see a list of things you can check or uncheck.  I usually leave those at the default.  Click Continue.

Click on Build Menu to choose the build to install.

There are several servers you can choose from and each server has different variations of the No Limits Magic Build.  For this tutorial, I will install the No Limits Firestick Lite – No XXX Section.  Click on the build you want to install.

There are two install options.  Fresh Install and Standard Install.  You should always use the Fresh Install when installing a new build.  Click on Fresh Install.

You will be asked if you want to restore Kodi back to the default settings before installing the build.  You should always click Continue at this point.

No Limits Magic Build will start downloading.

Once it has downloaded it will start unzipping and installing itself.

When it is finished installing, you will always want to choose Force Close to close Kodi automatically.

After Kodi closes, open it back up again and you will see the Kodi splash screen for a minute.

Then you will see the home screen of the No Limits Magic Build.  Wait a little bit while No Limits Magic rebuilds its menu and does some updating.  Once it has finished updating and building the menu, you are ready to continue to the next steps.

Now that you have installed No Limits Magic Build on Kodi 18.1, it’s just a simple matter of upgrading your Kodi installation to 18.2.  Exit out of Kodi and go back into the Jailbreak App Vault. You will want to choose and install Kodi version 18.2 this time.

This time, you will be asked if you want to install an update to the existing Kodi application.  Click INSTALL

After doing the update and opening up Kodi for the first time.  You will see that Kodi is now at version 18.2.

And you will also see that your No Limits Magic Build is working just fine.  

Please be sure to turn on your VPN when you are using Kodi or any other streaming media application.  And because of a great discount we get from IPVanish, there is no better time to sign up.
