So the last couple of days there has been screenshots & Chaos in the Kodi Community – Find out the latest on Lambda & Genesis’s future here.
After the release of Genesis 5.1.3, Lambda (Genesis Developer) left a note for us all that said:
I am also thinking stopping Genesis development.
I can’t add anything to it anymore, they keep breaking everything because of the high traffic it sends.
It is installed by way too many people, and I can’t add anything to it anymore.
It keeps breaking all the time.
So it’s logical killing it and developing a new add-on with a new add-on id.
If the same happens with the new add-on, do the same and the same.
Lambda since then has posted the below:
A year ago this add-on (gotv/gomovies days) had only vkbox as a HD source, all other sources were sd.
People that used the add-on back then where not stupid people that bought a box thinking they are so smart that they fooled paid services like Netflix and can have a Netflix for free.
These users have left this thread and I don’t blame them.
I am considering to do the same too
This add-on has become way too popular and I have to take all the crap of this user base.
This add-on has become something like a “protection” for other add-on developers against this user base lol
It doesn’t worth it anymore.
TVADDONS Administrator s7eele has posted a message in the official Genesis add-on thread:
The thread has been closed while lambda decides on a way forward. Please be patient.
If you want to show your support for the amazing things lambda has done for the community I think having patience as he decides on a way forward would be the most effective and most appreciated way. Do not leave posts anywhere on the forum suggesting the solution is charging a fee of some sort, lambda has gone to GREAT lengths to make it clear that Genesis was free and always would be.
