    Be advised this is the latest alpha v17 version of kodi so not all addons will work yet, but this will no doubt improve in time. Still with this and the MAME/snes/megadrive emulators that can be side loaded in a similar manner the atv4 is turning into a good platform for modding.....

    Genesis, 1channel and Pheonix all work perfectly, so thats got all your movies and tv catered for.

    And thats what 95% of Kodi users want anyway, so goodtimes

    Is it possible to use this method to install the latest stable version of kodi 15.2?

    The video specifically mentions the AppleTV 4 so you assume that it would work on the AppleTV 3?
    Even though the AppleTV 3 does not support apps you assume that side loading apps on the AppleTV 3 would work?

    Will KODI play mkv files? What about SMB or are limited to AirPlay?

    Going to give it a try. Anyone found a good Kodi theme yet that works to make it more iOS/AppleTV like?

    kodi alpha 17 has a very limited selection of compatible skins (not called themes). Stable versions have ATV-like skins available.

    Plays MKV files fine. SMB and NFS both work as well. NFS is faster though. Can even use the built-in file manager to transfer userdata to Kodi on the Apple TV 4. I used the file manager to upload my modified Transparency skin XML files to the Apple TV 4.

    I know, I thought that was obvious.

    The version of Kodi that runs on the Apple TV 4 has been specially modified for TVOS.
    Why would you assume that side loading would work on the ATV 3?

    Apparently you didn't even bother reading what I posted. Show me where I assumed that side loading apps would work on the AppleTV 3.
