Hi all just having a slight problem with the latest (release candidate 2) kodi 18 leia, anyone tried this latest offering from the kodi team yet? When installing a repo from zip it is force closing kodi in the process, install from unknown sources is enabled. I heard that kodi are clamping down now on 3rd party addon install but this is a bit extreme 'stopping at the source' lol. Easy way to get the repo added is to extract the zip and take out the repo and add it to the addons folder with a file explorer then enabling it within kodi but adding this way the repo zip doesn't get installed with no chance of auto updates. Any ideas??
Edit: Just rolled back to rc1 for now as its all good.

Hi, I had the same problem with rc2 but the latest development build kodi 18 rc3 (Dec 6) now lets me install a repo from zip.
