Install Kodi on Apple TV
- Use the USB-C cable to connect your Apple TV to your computer
- Open Xcode and choose Project from the File > New menu.
- We choose “Single View Application” from the tvOS>Application menu and click “Next.”
- In the “Product name” field, we write “Kodi,” which is the name we want to give the project. Then we click “Next.”
- We choose where we want to save the project and then click the Create button.
- We choose our developer account linked to Xcode from the “Team” drop-down menu (as we said at the beginning of the article) and click the “Resolve problem” button if the yellow triangle shows up to fix any problems with the supply profile.
- Now that the yellow triangle is gone, we make Xcode as small as possible.
We open the “iOS App Signer” app and go to “Signing Certificate” to make sure that our developer account is linked. We choose the “Provisioning Profile” that matches our “Kodi” project.
- Click “Browse” and choose the “del” file that we downloaded earlier. After that, we click “Open” and then “Start.”
- Once we’re done, we go back to Xcode and choose “Devices>Apple TV” from the “Window” menu in the top bar. Click “+” and then choose the “ipa” file we just made.
