What is Ares Wizard
Ares Wizard is all in one tool that contains Kodi Builds, Kodi Addons, Tweak Tools, Maintenance Tools and so on. It was released in back 2015, 5 years from today which was developed by some people called Ares Group. After getting too much fame this got shutdown because some legal action was taken against the developer that’s why they just quite its development.
After a few years, people got disappointed and requested the developers to bring Ares Wizard back and they finally listened to them. However, there is bad news as well since with the new version you can’t get the option for Kodi Builds
But still, I have a piece of good news for you as it still provides you with their amazing tools so we can easily manage our caches, check internet speed, and some other maintenance tools.

In case you don’t understand any step just check the screenshot attached below.
Before we proceed installation we have to first enable the installation of an unknown source. By default, Kodi doesn’t let anyone install Addons or other kinds of stuff that’s why we have to first enable this option.
Follow the below steps to enable Install from an unknown source in Kodi:
1. Launch Kodi on Firestick and from Home Screen click on Settings or the Gear icon.
2. From here click on System Settings.
3. Now on the left-hand side below toggle from Basic Settings to Advanced or Expert (otherwise unknown source option won’t appear).
4. After toggling to Advanced or Expert now form left-panel click on Addons section.
5. From Addons, you need to simply click on Unknown Source.
6. It will ask for the confirmation so just select Yes to Enable.
Now the installation of Unknown Source is enabled and now are ready to move to the installation process. For this, you need to simply follow the given below instructions carefully.
Go back to the Settings and at this time click on File Manager.
From there you just need to click on Add Source button from left or right it doesn’t matter.
It will open a dialogue box so from here click on None-.
Now you will be asked to add URL for source page, type http://areswizard.co.uk/ and click Ok. After this move below in name section and type any name (in my case it is Ares Wizard).
When everything is done now click on the OK button.
Now the source will appear on that page with the name you typed (check screenshot).
After this go back to the Home Screen on Kodi and then click on Addons.
At this time select Addon Installer or the Box type icon located near Settings.
Here you will see many options available just scroll down and select Install From Zip.
A pop-up window will appear with some files or folder name so find the name you typed in File Manager section and click on it.
In the next screen you will be asked to choose the zip file, so click on script.areswizard-0.0.69.zip (0.0.69 is the version when I am writing this guide it may be different when you install it so don’t get confused).
After selecting the zip file just wait for some time until the Addon downloads and when the process is done you will receive a notification on the top right-side “Ares Wizard Add-on Installed”.
Now we have successfully installed Ares Wizard on our device and you are now ready to access its content on Firestick. Please keep in mind that you will see Builds & Add-ons option there but cannot select it as they have removed.
If you are looking for Kodi Addons then I have written a separate guide on it, just check out below links:

I have already mentioned above that this Addon now no longer supports downloading of Addons or Builds but now we can only use maintenance tool. This is one of them as when a user open movie or TV show form any Addon their thumbnails and some temp data saved into Firestick.
These caches or Temp files make our any addon to load slow and sometimes we also face the buffering issue as well. If you already know this Setting then just leave this guide as it is for only beginners who recently installed Ares on Kodi.
Ok, so without wasting time checkout below steps:

It will take a few seconds to launch the Addon and then you will see the simple Home Screen with some menus. Now using the navigation keys move to the above menu and from here click on Tweaks.
After going there now move down and then click on Advanced Wizard Settings.
In the next Screen Click Next and after this click on Generate Settings

After setting up cache size now choose Mode 2 from Buffer Mode section.
