The Noobs and Nerds repository became famous for the number of official and unofficial Kodi add-ons it contained.
These included the Metalliq Kodi add-on, Supremacy, Simply Caz, Kodi Israel, and Super Repo. It was also home to the now-deceased Fusion repo.
The full name was abbreviated to “NaN,” which does make it easier to say. The repo went on to be the most accessible resource you could find for installing add-ons.
It was trouble-free, and there were not many errors encountered using this repo.
What Has Happened to NoobsandNerds?
Very recently, March 29, 2019, to be exact, it was showing that NoobsandNerds was down. The statement shown was ‘Account Suspended.”
This was more than likely to do with copyright infringement which befalls many Kodi add-on and repos.
This could be the end of it, but luckily, there is a ‘mirror link’ where you can go for this repository.
For the rest of this install guide, the following link will be used to install NoobsandNerds on Kodi.
Because these add-ons and repos catch so much attention and have done so ever since the days when the XBMC foundation changed the name to Kodi, it is advisable to stop any MPA agency or ISP from seeing what you are streaming.
This will need a fast VPN which we will explain after the install instructions.

What is the Best VPN for NoobsandNerds?
There are a couple of options for VPNs you can select. The first being NordVPN. This delivers excellent security, which helps users retain privacy and access quite a few geo-blocked streaming services.
Unfortunately, lately, there have been a few things written about Nord that basically state they are not accessing these services, or there are problems with connections (It is slow on some servers). Because of this, it isn’t recommended to sign up, just in case.
The second option isn’t having any such problems and can bypass any geo-restrictions that the service may encounter. (Read Elysium Not Working On Kodi)
This VPN is ExpressVPN, and it so happens it is the best and the fastest to use with Kodi. With this VPN, you can retain your privacy and also access and install NAN without any hitches.
