Sideloading Kodi for Apple TV 4K


Here are the steps that you need to follow for the installation.

  1. Firstly, you’ll have to connect or pair your Apple TV wirelessly to Xcodeon your Mac. The reason behind connecting your Mac and Apple TV wirelessly is that Apple TV 4K doesn’t feature USB-C port as was the case with previous generation Apple TV models. So, as soon as you have set up Xcode and Apple TV correctly, continue with the steps given below.
  2. Download Kodi 17.4 that offers Apple TV 4K support.
  3. Now that you have the Kodi .DEB file with you, you will have to generate its signed IPA file. Once you do that, sideload it to your Apple TV 4K with Xcode on your Mac.

  4. Once the sideloading is complete, go to the Home screen on your tvOS and you’ll be able to see Kodi icon there.

Launch it and start using Kodi on your Apple TV 4K, or on your 4th-gen Apple TV 4.
