1 Installing from Cydia
1.1 Kodi v15.0 on iOS 5.x
|There's an issue that is preventing Kodi from running on jailbroken iOS 5.x devices. A fix has been submitted for Kodi v15.1 and can be tested with the v15.1 pre-release build: http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=233293|
Updates for stable releases of Kodi are handled by Cydia and will show up in the 'Changes' section when available. (After updating the sources)

|Betas and release candidates||Betas and release candidates are builds that are being tested to see if they have any bugs left before becoming a stable release. Most major bugs should be fixed in these builds.||Download the newest .deb file from: http://mirrors.kodi.tv/apt/pre-release/ios/deb/|
