The developer of the famous Mashup addon of XBMC (Kodi), Mash2k3, suddenly pushed an update of Mashup few days ago, which practically deleted Mashup addon on every device. He could have warned us or his fellow developers before deleting everything.
Here is how you should get it back and it will not auto-update again to delete itself.
- Download this zip file: http://is.gd/mashuplatest
- Open your XBMC (Kodi) and go to System>Settings>Addons>Install from zip file and navigate to the downloaded zip file. Wait a little bit until you see that Mashup is enabled.
Thats it! Go to Videos>Video Addons>Mashup now and Enjoy! Give it a little time to load the icons.

Remember most of the things will not work here as the project was abandoned. I was desperate for it because of the Super Search, Super Movies and Super TV shows functions and last but not the least the mighty, MBOX links! MBOX seems to be the only consisted feed.

Genesis, Cliq, iStream, Navi-X all of these are nothing compared to what Mashup was. I was having a hard time finding tv shows and movies and stuff to watch. No wonder why people used to tell that Mashup is the only addon you need in your XBMC.
Several heated debate and mourning is going on all over the internet since then, specially on Reddit and Twitter.
Apparently, the last auto-update was the main culprit that deletes everything from Mashup leaving a goodbye message only. I was curious to know how to stop that final auto-update.
In the XBMC (or Kodi) folder, addons\plugin.video.movie25\default.py file was the one that checks for updates. The following line in the default.py file actually doest the work.
verCheck=True #main.CheckVersion()#Checks If Plugin Version is up to date
So, the most obvious thing to do is to change it to “False”.
verCheck=False #main.CheckVersion()#Checks If Plugin Version is up to date
The profile folder of XBMC (Kodi) is located at:
For Kodi “Helix” version 14 on Windows:
C:\Users\ (your username) \AppData\Roaming\Kodi\addons\plugin.video.movie25
For XBMC “Gotham” version 13 on Windows:
C:\Users\ (your username) \AppData\Roaming\XBMC\addons\plugin.video.movie25
For XBMC on Linux: at your home directory (usually it is a hidden .xbmc folder)
All my existing XBMCs were affected by the damn, except one!
I somehow managed to save that by the above modification, and packed in a zip file.
