NEW: Syncler 1.0 Stable has been released! The instructions below have been updated for the latest version, which now installs itself with the help of Syncler Installer. The Installer automatically detects the version of Android you are running and downloads the appropriate files for you.

What is Syncler?

Syncler is an Android TV APK for movies and TV show information. It presents TV and movie information pulled from TMDB and Trakt.

Syncler is a fork of the old TVZion APK, which went offline in early September 2020 due to cease and desist letters sent to moderators of the APK on Reddit.

Like TVZion, Syncler has an amazing TV interface that looks gorgeous on your television. It contains complete Trakt support and also support for the top Debrid services: Real Debrid, Premiumize, and All Debrid.

  • A fix for those devices that were seeing 0 links found! An in-built JS Engine has been added to remove the system supplied webview dependency
  • Fixed slow search
  • Fixed providers failing
  • The Helios wording has been removed from app as requested by the community
  • Introducing Kosmos (Javascript) and Express (JSON) – Two source provider package frameworks for Syncler for easy source providers package development.

Syncler vs TVZion

For those of you who were familiar with TVZion, the Syncler Android app feels pretty close in terms of look and feel. A lot of the same core features are still included.

However, there are a few big differences that change what Syncler is now and into the future.


Unlike TVZion, Syncler does not contain any scrapers. It will not have any scrapers, which is what is associated with third party piracy and is the cause for cease and desist letters.

However, Syncler now has support for Kosmos providers, which is a third party list of working provider websites. A provider is a website that shows streaming file links. Syncler has no affiliation to these website. For more information, check out the Third Party Providers section below.

As well, if you have content in your debrid cloud, then it should appear on the link list as before. You should also be able to browse your debrid cloud. At the moment debrid cloud links are the only links you can get

So to summarize:

  1. Syncler itself will not give you links. Not now, not ever.
  2. However, information for support with 3rd party provider add ons is below.
  3. If you have a debrid account (RD or PM or AD), you are free to add any content to your debrid cloud and you can access it from your debrid manager in the app.
  4. You can also enable Settings > Content > Debrid cloud so that the app searches your debrid cloud for content as well and if found and matched it will appear on the link search result page.

ZionClub Members

The new Syncler Android developer is in the process of a negotiation with the reseller to get ZionClub codes to seamlessly on-board all existing ZionClub users. 

Until any new features are added to the app, there’s no premium. Just go to the ZionClub section and enter “S+” to get ZionClub access.

In the next section, we’ll show you how to install the Syncler Android APK.


Syncler has support for adding third party provider packs into the app. These provider packs are not affiliated with the Syncler developer at all.

How to Install Bouncy Kosmos Provider

Bouncy is a Kosmos package for Syncler that has a few awesome extra features:

  • After links are found, they are cached on a server for 6 hours. This will save everyone time finding good working links.
  • Bouncy includes torrent providers (the most popular torrent sites)
  • Includes some hoster links for both debrid and non-debrid users.

To install Bouncy:

  1. From the home screen, click on Settings
  2. Select Provider Packages

  4. Select Kosmos
  5. Follow the instructions on your screen. Enter in the following link:

For most people, the Bouncy provider is going to be all you need to install. If you install Bouncy and an Express package, you will see duplicate links for each file and cause unnecessary requests to each host website.

  1. Installed on Samsung tablet A t510 android 11 and cell moto power android 10. Works great on the moto and its way different and not so good on the tablet.

  2. installed on my shield and it works great. But for some reason, the app doesnt show up on my home screen anymore. I am using launchX launcher. typically i can hide and unhide apps to have them show or not show. But it is not in my hide list. any ideas how to get it on my home screen?

  3. Was working great now all I get is failed to retrieve links. Tried clean install and setup but still the same.

  4. Like all Beta programs, it is in it’s infancy and one shouldn’t expect perfection. I’ll give it a few weeks and then work on the issues.

  5. It just doesnt make sense.. I had installed Helios 4 packages and S+ successfully but never found any links. Is there a test we can do? I have since gone to beta4v1 no luck..installed the 4 Helios again as express successful and still no links.. Do we need kosmos and where do we find them?

  6. I used the Helios codes on the express source and it installed and is finding links.
    P.s. they failed to install putting them into kosmos, so make sure to put them in express.

  7. I’m with everyone else. Mine won’t take the S+ code. Also shows Kosmos not Helios in Provider packages. So can’t get a provider package installed either. REALLY want this to replace Zion but looks like we all have to wait awhile.

  8. It worked fine for the first few days on my firestick. Now, there’s an issue with the provider links. I’ve Uninstalled and reinstalled the app to make sure. Now, the packages fail to load.

  9. I installed S+ and the 4 Helios links successfully a few days ago but no links found on playback. I reinstalled and same again 🙁 . Have missed something or it just a matter of waiting now.. 🙂

  10. Worked on my nvidia shield . No problem . Does not appear to work on my t95q ( Pure android ) vs android tv operating system of the nvidia shield . Installed the S+ code / Helios provider package and my real debrid . All movies and tv shows coming up with found 0 links ?

  11. I have 3 non true android boxes eg x96 max pro none after all the setups show any links. My phone setup in 5 mins so I know how to do it. Many on different websites are having problems any ideas. Or should we wait till the dev works it out
