Step 2. Hit File manager from System page.
Step 3. Double hit Add source from the left column.

Step 12. Wait until you can see a message pops up on the upper-right side saying Loop Repository Add-on installed. Please note that’s just the installation of the repository, then it’s time to add addon to Kodi from repository. Select Install from repository from the current page.
