Many people ask me how can the unlock there Amazon 2nd Generation Firesticks and Fire TV Boxes so I decided to post a tutorial for jailbreaking the Firestick by installing the latest version of Kodi 17.1. It’s pretty easy once you know what to do, but for the less technical folks out there you can always purchase one from us with all the best Kodi TV and Movie addons preloaded!
HOW TO INSTALL KODI KRYPTON 17.1 ON THE AMAZON FIRE STICK OR FIRE TV BOX UPDATED MAY 2017
The first thing you will need is to plug in the Fire Stick to your TV and log into your Amazon account.
Step 2 will prepare your Fire TV Device to accept unsupported third party applications, such as Kodi 17.1 Krypton.
Using your Fire TV remote navigate to ‘SETTINGS’ and hit the enter button. Now choose ‘APPLICATIONS’ and turn off ‘Collect App Usage Data’ as seen in the following picture:
Once you have done this, return to the previous menu and navigate to ‘System>Developer Options and turn on “ADB debugging” and “Apps from Unknown Sources” as seen in the following picture:
Step 3 prepares your Fire TV device to download applications outside of the official Amazon App store.
Navigate back to the Main Menu. Select APPS>CATEGORIES>PRODUCTIVITY
Find the application “Downloader” and install it as shown in the following image:
Step 4 consists of downloading Kodi installer from the Kodi downloads website.
Once you have opened Downloader, you will be presented with a screen to enter a URL.
Enter http://kodi.tv/download then click Go. Please double check the picture below to make sure you’ve entered the URL exactly.
You will then be taken to the Kodi Download website.
In step 5, we will download and install Kodi on your Amazon Fire TV device.
On the KODI website, use the buttons on your Fire TV remote control to navigate down the page. The red circle acts almost as a mouse pointer. Find the section that says “Choose Your Weapon”
Place the red cursor over the Android (as illustrated in the picture below) and click ‘enter’ on your Fire TV remote
You will now be taken to a new page. Now, navigate the red cursor down the page until it directly over ‘ARMV7A (32BIT)’ as in the picture below. Hit the enter button on your Fire TV remote control.
Kodi will begin downloading. Once it has downloaded, you will be asked if you want to install the Application.
Congratulations, you have made it through the most important step of jailbreaking your Amazon Fire TV Device!
The next step is to install add-ons that will allow you to access loads of content. I highly recommend installing the No Limits Magic Build which offers all of the most important add-ons and apps for Kodi in one installation.
