Pulse Builds on Kodi 17 Krypton

One of the most popular builds on Kodi is now available for Krypton. Pulse CCM. The navigation will be familiar with most Kodi build users and it is quick to get around which will get you on your chosen content quickly. The movie and TV Show widgets are helpful and there is a good category choice with plenty of the top add-ons included. It's very easy to include your own add-ons and favourites into the build which gives you a lot of custom choices. It's a simple and straight forward kind of build but it just does everything exceptionally well. Pulse Build support can be found on the Ares forum. When installing from Ares Wizard you will need to enter the pin upon request. You will be prompted for it.

You can leave feedback below (good or bad) for the benefit of all our readers. Thanks.

    Mark - I am trying to get this to work on 17.3 and have tried 3 times. The Build installs but after opening Kodi, I get the Pulse screen then it defaults to what looks like a Fresh install of Kodi* Ive looked in Interface Settings to see if the skin was changed back but there is no skin for this Build but I see the rolling ticker at the bottom and if I go into File Manager there are a lot of repositories * Very very strange. Happening on Firestick (27th May 2017) reply
    John - Im having the same issue. Did you ever find a solution? Ive been searching the net for a week looking for answers without any luck. Id be curious if youve found anything (1st Jun 2017) reply
    Pulse - RE run Ares Wizard, once build has downloaded and extracted youll get the option to back up skin, select no and this should install the build correctly. (9th Jun 2017)
    Brian - Also having this issue. 0 for 2 so far. (5th Jun 2017) reply
    Gaddo - Im having the same problems with Kodi 17.3 pulse not loading up. I even tried loading the 2nd pulse krypton link and that doesnt work either. So I deleted kodi 17.3 completely and installed kodi 17.1. But now when I launch pulse its just a blank screen. I guess kodi found a way to block the pulse build. I dont know why I never bothered to update. My pulse build was running fine on 17.1. Hopefully this will get fixed soon. (7th Jun 2017) reply
    pokee - no ...its working well...but not on 17.3.....17.3 the skin is not applicate on it...need from pulse to update thier skin for 17.3...all you have to do to get this is to delete the whole kodi ...install 17.1 ..and then through Ares download the pulse CCM krypt (8th Jun 2017) reply
    SP - Couldnt get this to work. Kodi wouldnt open after installing. I love my old Pulse build. Ill try again in a few weeks and see if anything changes. (23rd May 2017) reply
    Admin (Kodiapps) - The Krypton version Will only work on an Android 5 or up device. If your device is Android 4.4 you Will have Kodi Jarvis most likely. You could use Nodi APK (see our APK section), which Can be installed on an Android 4.4 and which Will take a Krypton based build like this one... (23rd May 2017) reply
    Admin (Kodiapps) - Install video for Nodi... https://youtu.be/s7QZSNUXdUs (23rd May 2017)
    Neb - Everything is great except the stupid banner at the top left corner. It covers my weather and it is annoying. On top of it all the team is proud not to tell me how to remove the nuisance. (13th May 2017) reply
    Jeff - Yea, that banner is really fing annoying, but you can get rid of it pretty easily. Do a search in the Home.xml file and comment out the "" and "" sections, and the banner in the upper lefthand corner will go away. (22nd May 2017) reply
    Jeff - It removed portions of my reply in the quotes, but here are the two sections you need to comment out "control type="image" & "control type="multiimage" id="1999" (22nd May 2017) reply
    XeCuTioNR - I tried editing the XML but after I did, black screen the skin...i dont know if i did something wrong but if you can help Jeff (or anyone) I would appricate it. Thanks :) (26th May 2017)
    Admin (Kodiapps) - As fully loaded box Sellers earn money on other peoples hard work, which they provide for free, it is understandable that Some take precautions. Like a banner... ;) If you find it too annoying, it might be best to find another build. There are so many beautiful Builds out there... Enjoy! (26th May 2017) reply
    SQ - Best Build. Use it on all my devices (Rasp Pi, Android, windows) Tried many and I always come back to Pulse. It just friggin works! (8th May 2017) reply

    Frank Bowman - I have been using Pulse for quite sometime, never fails, runs smooth and easy, I changed the number of widgets on each tab to show 75 each time, and added (thru favorites) some packages I like to show up as widgets, like sports premier, movies 2017, kids movies and movies for my wife. Fantastic build that can be customized if you want. (18th Apr 2017) reply

    BeachBum - I appreciate all the work that must go into developing these guides and keeping them current. I tried this on on 17.1 and it didnt work in the order given. I am trying for the third time, hoping that it is just me making mistakes. Thanks. (13th Apr 2017) reply
