Due to sudden overnight copyright action on 3rd party developers, they were forced to shut down repositories. Ares repo, colossus repo, Muckyduck repo has fallen prey to this legal crisis. Being one of the widely used repos they left the large base of Kodi users with a lot of unanswered questions. The most common question among the users is, “Will they be back?”, “What will happen to the addons hosted in this repo?” and  “Is there any alternative for ares wizard?”

After gathering info from their twitter account, we can conclude that these repos are shut down. Just as Phoenix add-on comeback, we are waiting for the Ares repo.

Most of the addons are still working as they are hosted on multiple repos. But few addons which were hosted only in ares repo and colossus repo, disapearead. And sadly, bennu is one of them. From this crisis one thing is clear, “No addon will top the list forever!!!” So being a Kodi user we should keep looking for the best addons regularly to stream our favorite media on Kodi.
