How To Install Fire TV Guru Build for Kodi on Fire Stick and Fire TV
While we don't recommend installing builds on your Fire TV, some of you might find The Fire TV Guru Build interesting.
The Fire TV Guru build for Kodi is a fork of the very popular No Limits Magic Build that has been experiencing some trouble as of late. The Fire TV Guru is marketed toward the Fire Stick and Fire TV crowd, but it will work on any device you can install KODI on, including your computers, tablets, and phones.
Since Fire TV Guru is a Build for Kodi, you will have to first install Kodi on your Fire TV or Firestick, which can be done by following our step by step guide here. Because Installing the Fire TV Guru Build will install several Kodi add-ons at once, we recommend returning your Kodi to its factory settings before installing.
Before doing so you may also want to make sure the download link for the Fire TV Guru build is still live before nuking all of your Kodi settings. If you have a bunch of Kodi add-ons already installed, I'd recommend backing up your current Kodi Install in case you want to restore it later. You can learn how to do this in this tutorial.
