This morning, multiple Kodi users found that the Superrepo Kodi repository is pushing a Genesis 5.0.8i update out. This modified version of Genesis 5.0.8 appears to contain all of the same features as the official lambda version, except that the download option has been removed! The new Genesis download feature use a new method of downloading developed by Super Favorites developer spoyser and has been a big hit in the Kodi community!
If you see that your Genesis add-on in Kodi is reading as Genesis 5.0.8i, you can have Genesis installed from Superrepo and not from the official TVADDONS fusion repository.

Note: UK internet service providers have blocked some of the website hosts used by Genesis. If you find that you are from the UK and aren’t seeing many choices for a particular show or movie, you can buy a VPN account to hide your internet traffic and make it look like you are from a different country. IPVanish is one of the best VPN clients because it is tier 1 (no speed slowdown) and log-free so that you are protected. The cost is about the same as a Starbucks coffee per month.
