Once in a while a nice spring clean-up is just what your XBMC installation could use. If you’re the kind of person that has multiple add-ons installed (and most are) then after months of updates being placed on top of previous updates tends to slow down your XBMC sooner or later. We’ve devised a sort of factory restore functionality for XBMC, that way every once in a while you can simply run this new add-on, and you’ll be left with an XBMC that is entirely vanilla, or basically what it was when you first installed it originally, free of any third party add-ons or customization’s.
We recommend that if you’re using XBMC exclusively for the add-ons, you perform this factory restore once every six months in order to remain fresh and with the best working add-ons enabled at all times. It will ensure that old, junk doesn’t take up excessive space, and it’ll get rid of add-ons or customization that are no longer working or relevant, giving you a nice fresh XBMC installation to work with. Whether you are having serious difficulty with script errors, have too many broken add-ons, or simply want to reconfigure so that everything’s fully up to date from scratch, this add-on is for you. Basically what it does is deletes the entire XBMC configuration folder and the folder is rebuilt with factory settings at the time of next launch, at which point you can start re-configuring it your way.
