how to install Diamond Dust kodi build

In this tutorial, you will learn to install the Diamond Dust Build on Kodi. The instructions provided here will work on Amazon FireStick, Fire TV Cube, Fire TV Stick 4K, Android Mobiles, Windows PC, Mac, and all the Kodi compatible platforms.

Diamond Dust is one of the newer Kodi builds. This build is preloaded with dozens of top-grade video-addons. It lets you stream live TV, on-demand content like movies and shows, sports related content, and a lot more. It is a lightweight build that offers top-notch performance on all devices.  After using the Diamond Dust Kodi build, I realized that it must be the part of our top Kodi Builds too.

In this guide I will give you the detailed instructions to install Diamond Dust build on Kodi. Builds are easy to install, but make sure you follow each step carefully and in the order it has been arranged in this tutorial.

Attention: Kodi Builds bring unlimited streaming content, but could also get you in a legal trouble. Kodi users must use a VPN to hide their identity while streaming movies / TV Shows / Sports. Moreover, many popular Addons are geo-blocked and will require a VPN to work

Install Diamond Dust Kodi Build

If you want to install a build from a third-party source, the Unknown Sources in the Kodi security settings must be turned on. So, before getting started with the installation steps, follow the steps below:

Go to the Kodi Settings from the home-screen. You can do that by clicking the cog/gear icon on the top-left

Now, navigate to and open System settings

Next, click Add-ons on the left of the following window

On the right of the same window, you will see Unknown Sources. If it is switched off, go ahead and turn it ON by moving its toggle to the right

Kodi will now warn you of the potential threats your device will be exposed to upon turning this option ON. But, that happens when you install a malicious program. Diamond Dust Kodi build is safe. I have used it personally.

So, click Yes

Note: Once you have installed Diamond Dust build on Kodi, go back to Unknown Sources and switch it OFF.

When this is taken care of, you can get started with the installation procedure. There are lots of steps involved in this process. You just need to follow them in the same order as they have been laid out in this guide. You will have Diamond Dust Kodi Build in just a few minutes. To make things even easier, I am breaking down the process in the following parts:

Part 1: Add the repository source to Kodi

Part 2: Install Diamond Repo and Diamond Build Wizard

Part 3: Install Diamond Dust Kodi Build

We will now go through each part separately.

Part 1: Add the repository source to Kodi

To install any repository or add-on on Kodi, you must either download the zip file on your hard drive or add the source URL to Kodi that points at the zip file. The latter is usually quicker. So, here is how you can add the source URL:

Step 1: Open the Kodi Settings (do that from the Kodi home-screen)

Step 2: On the next window, select and open the option File manager

Step 3: Now, click and open the Add source item on the following window (as you see, this option is on the left as well as right. You may click any you like)

Note: If you have already added too many sources, you may not see Add source on the screen. You will need to scroll down to the bottom of the list first

Step 4: When you see the following screen, click

Step 5: This is the window where you will enter the following URL:

Take care of the typos while typing in the URL. Even a single mistake will prevent you from installing the Diamond Dust Kodi Build.

When done, click OK

Step 6: You also need to enter the name for this source with which you would want to identify it. Even though it could be any name you like, it is best to keep it relevant and easily identifiable with the source URL.

Let’s go with ruby and click OK

This is how you add the source to Kodi for the Diamond Dust build.

Part 2: Install the Diamond Repo and Diamond Build Wizard

Diamond Repo is the repository that you will fetch from the source you added a little bit ago. From this repository you will install the Diamond Build Wizard. This is the Wizard from which you will eventually extract the Diamond Dust build on Kodi.

Here is how it goes:

Step 1: Go to the home-screen of Kodi.

Click Add-ons

Step 2: Open the item Package Installer (the one that you see on the top-left in the image below)

Step 5: On the next screen, click INSTALL_DIAMOND_REPO

Step 6: Now click file.

This is the zip file from where you will extract the Diamond Wizard Repo.

As you can see, the version number of this zip file is 3.3.9 while I write this guide. However, it may change when you are installing this build if the repo is updated. Don’t worry about the version number. Click the zip file with whatever number it has.

Part 3: Install Diamond Dust Kodi Build

We will now use the Diamond Wizard to install the Diamond Dust Kodi build. Follow the steps below:

Step 1: Go to Program add-ons from Kodi home-screen > Add-ons

Now click and open the Diamond Build Wizard

Step 2: When you see this window, click (Diamond) Builds

Step 3: Under the Krypton Builds, click Fuse – Diamond Dust

Step 4: On this window, you need to make a choice whether to go for Fresh Install or choose Standard Install

My recommendation is Fresh Install. This option will wipe your Kodi clean and install the Diamond Dust Kodi build on the default Kodi. That’s the best. That’s how you get the builds to perform optimally.

When you choose Standard Install, you may be able to salvage some existing data (not all), but the build may not perform well.

Click Fresh Install

Step 5: Click Continue to confirm your intent and to allow the Wizard to reset your Kodi

This is how you install the Diamond Dust Kodi Build.

Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons / Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, Sports) might get you into legal trouble.

Kodi users should always use a VPN to protect their identity while streaming.

I personally use and recommend ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it freely for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for the full refund.

We do not encourage the violation of the copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.

So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here's how to get VPN protection in 3 simple steps.

Step 1: Get the ExpressVPN subscription HERE.

Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your device.

Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.

Quick Tour of Diamond Dust Kodi Build

Open Kodi again on your device after installing the build. You will notice that the Kodi home-screen has changed dramatically. This is the new home-screen now

diamond dust kodi build

Most Kodi builds stick to some standards in the layout. They have the main menu-bar strip running across from left to right and is usually positioned closer to the bottom than the top.

The menu-bar also has the submenu-bar underneath it.  The whole setup makes navigation a lot easier.

Cycle through the menu-bar and you will find Movies, TV Shows, Live TV, Sports, and other options. These home-screen items help you get started quickly. Choose a menu item, such as Movies, and pick the desired submenu item to explore further.

The Diamond Dust Kodi build also shows other onscreen items related to the chosen item in the Menu and submenu bars.

In the image above, I chose Set / Add option in the menu-bar and click Video Add-ons in the submenu bar. What I see now is the list of the addons preloaded on Kodi Diamond Dust build.  The image below does not show the complete list though. You will want to scroll down to see more.  But, I can already see some top add-ons on the visible part of the list such as DeathStar, Monster Munch, Redemption, SelfLess Lite, Supremacy Sports etc.

The lucky strike of serendipity had me run into the Diamond Dust Kodi build. With so many builds and addons falling apart, Diamond Dust build is certainly a delightful discovery. It looks good, performs even better and comes with loads of pre-installed video add-ons. Go ahead and give it a go.
