How to Uninstall Indigo Addon on Kodi – Regain Trouble-free Access to Your Favourite Addons

Author by Oswald

Update on May 27, 2020

Many of us have found Indigo kinda worthless and it even stops us from using other addons, and it’s about time to uninstall it. Unfortunately, Indigo doesn’t seem to want to be easily removed, and this is what this post for, I’ll step-by-step show you how to get rid of Indigo on Kodi for good.

If you find that post helpful, sharing it to do your bit to the community. Let’s help everybody get their problems solved.

Part 1. Why We Should Remove Indigo and What Seems to be the Problem here..

Indigo addon has gone too far from a simple and innocent Kodi maintenance kit and installation tool. It has become a pain in the ass for many Kodi users in mainly these ways:

· Indigo will install itself from TV addons repository without any notification.

· Indigo pops up annoying notification messages for updates (while there isn’t any took place) all the time.

· Recently, many addon users, especially The Crew users, have found that their favourite addons and repositories are either disappeared or unable to launch.

At the late update of Indigo on in April 2020, TVA (TVaddons.co) has added a new code to Indigo for surreptitiously blocking Kodi users from using these addons.

· The conventional process of uninstalling addons doesn’t work for Indigo.

This problematic addon has somehow managed to sneak into URLresolver as a dependency, while URLresolver in turn is a crucial dependency to most addons these days. It’s known to all that you can’t uninstall an addon dependency without uninstalling the addon first, thus you can see that Indigo has made itself really hard for average users to uninstall.

Part 2. Try Disabling Indigo Addon on Kodi

· A simple trick that is worth a try.

Step 1. Launch Kodi, go to Search > Search add-ons.

Kodi search addons

Step 2. Enter search string: Indigo, and hit OK.

Search Indigo

Step 3. Click on any of the media sources of Indigo from the search result. From the addon info panel, click Disable.

In that case, though Indigo is not uninstalled, it won’t be causing trouble for now. That works for some people, turn to Part 3 if you see ‘This add-on can’t be disabled’.

Disable Indigo

Part 3. How to Uninstall Indigo Addon on Kodi

To uninstall Indigo, what we need to do is to install an Indigo removing addon called Fuck Indigo, and use it to delete Indigo folder while bypassing Indigo blocking. Prior to that, make sure TV addon repository is uninstalled and its source has been removed from Kodi File Manager.

Step 1. Launch Kodi, since you cannot see The Crew repository now, you can only install Fuck Indigo 0.0.2 from the repositories that are not currently blocked by Indigo.

Recommended repository:  Fracture Repo (Repository media source URL: http://insanity-builds.tk/fracturedrepo/)

· Install Fuck Indigo from program addons section.

Install Fuck Indigo

Step 2. But we still can’t launch Fuck Indigo since Indigo stands in the way. Go to Add-ons > Program addons.

Go to program addons

Step 3. Locate and right-click on Indigo addon, and click disable. DO NOT click on Indigo and click disable from addon info panel.

Disable Indigo

Step 4. As you can see, Indigo is gone from program addons list.

Indigo disabled

Step 5. Now we can run Fuck Indigo addon! Launch Fuck Indigo once, and restart Kodi. Each time you restart Kodi, Fuck Indigo will automatically delete the Indigo folder.

Launch Fuck Indigo

After that, my The Crew Repo can now be seen again from the repository list.

The Crew Repo is back

And my The Crew addon is perfectly working again!

Problem solved?

Since we’re here, I hope you have successfully uninstalled Indigo addon on your Kodi. If not, here are some other feasible yet more troublesome solutions to uninstall Indigo:

· Downgrade Indigo to 4.0.12 and try the uninstallation methods again.

· Downgrade Kodi version and URLresolver to uninstall Indigo.

· Uninstall all the addons using URLresolver as a dependency, and you can freely uninstall Indigo. (How to uninstall addons on Kodi)

· The last resort, factory reset Kodi. But be sure you have backup of your Kodi prior to that.
