Clear Kodi Data to Restore Defaults (Quick Guide)
Now let’s consider if you want to uninstall Kodi because you are facing issue with Add-ons or Builds. Then I would either recommend you to Clear Data instead of removing it. The reason is clearing data simply delete everything from the app including Add-ons, Settings, Builds, Account and so on.
This is why I personally like this method because I don’t need to follow the same process to sideload it. Although if your case is different then simply leave this guide as your work is done. Because this section is only for those who are facing some issue and wants to restore this app like it was before.
Ok, now follow the steps given below to Clear Kodi data and restore it to defaults:
- Open Settings from above menu or press and hold the Home button to open Settings.
- Now move forward and then select Applications.
- After this click on the Manage Installed Applications.
- Find Kodi from the list and select it.
- Now click on the Clear Data option from there.
- Again select Clear Data option when asked.
That’s all you have successfully cleared data of this application and now you can launch it to check if it restores or not. You can simply go to Home Screen and then move to Your Apps & Channels and select See All.
From there find Kodi and then open it, you will notice it ask for permission to access Media, Files, Photos just like before. That means you completed clearing data and now you just need to install all Add-ons again.
