Step 5: Select the ‘Install from zip file’ option, and another popup window will show up. Look for the name that you have given for the source (in this case it’s misfit) and double click it.
You should see a list of folders and also some zip files. You’ll want to find the zip file called “repository.misfitmods.zip.” Please select it and hit OK.
Step 6: Kodi will begin to download the zip file. This process will take a few seconds. You’ll know it’s done when you see a toast message appear on the top right corner of your screen that says ‘Misfit Mods: Repository Add on Installed’.

Step 10: Immediately after the toast message shows up, you should see the Misfits Mods Wizard welcome window pop up on your main display.
Just click on “Dismiss” to get rid of it. If you click on “Remind me Later,” it will show up again the next time you open Kodi.
Step 11: The next popup will show you a list of settings that you can enable or disable. Feel free to enable or disable any options, or just leave it as it is on default and click Continue.
Step12: Another prompt will show up, asking If you would like to install a Community build. Just click ‘Ignore’ for now.

It’s highly recommended that you choose Fresh Install or you might encounter errors when using your HardNox build.
But take note it will delete all saved data and options that are currently in your Kodi app and reset it to factory settings.
Step 16: Hit ‘Yes’ to confirm, and you should see a progress bar that will show your installation progress. If it doesn’t show up, it’s probably due to a server error. Go through steps 14 and 15 to try again.
