How To Jailbreak and Install Kodi on The Amazon FireStick Hack

What does it mean to "Jailbreak" a Fire Stick or Fire TV?

Many people ask us what it means to "Jailbreak" a FireStick or Fire TV. When you hear people raving about Jailbroken FireSticks, what they are referring to is modifying the Fire TV operating system in a way that will allow you to install third party apps that are not approved for release on the Amazon App Store. This process is technically called side-loading apps on Fire TV. For our own purposes, we use the terms Jailbreaking a FireStick, Unlocking a FireStick, and side-loading a FireStick interchangeably.

The most popular third party app is Kodi as it has become synonymous with Jailbroken streaming devices. Kodi is an app that was originally created for the Xbox long before it officially supported all of the streaming functionality it has today, but since then it has been modified to run on almost any device.

Because Kodi is open source, many developers create their own addons. You can think of addons as apps within Kodi itself. These Kodi addons will allow you to access TV shows, live TV, live sports that you cannot access via the Amazon Fire TV operating system itself.

The following guide will teach you how to install Kodi 17.4 and begin to unlock  your Amazon 2nd Generation Firesticks and Fire TV Box. It's pretty easy once you know what to do, but for the less technical folks out there you can always purchase one from our partners at techlife.tv with all the best Kodi TV and Movie addons preloaded.

Before proceeding, we highly recommend streaming via a Virtual Private Network (VPN). By connecting through a VPN, all of your internet traffic will be encrypted and hidden from your internet service provider.


Our favorite, most reliable VPN service for streaming media on Fire Stick and Fire TV is IPVanish. For more information about protecting yourself with VPN as well as an instructional video on how to install IPVanish on your Fire TV please see our article here.

Next Steps

Congratulations, you have made it through the most important step of jailbreaking your Amazon Fire TV Device!

The next step is to install the best Kodi add-ons that will allow you to access movies, TV shows, live TV and sports. We have up to date tutorials for all of best Kodi Add-ons, as well as tutorials on how to install some Kodi alternatives.

A note on "Kodi Builds" and "Wizards"

We always recommend installing add-ons individually rather than one-click "Kodi builds." While these builds are a convenient way to get a lot of add-ons really fast, they not allow the individual add-ons to update automatically which is crucial to keeping your device up and running smoothly. We also find that builds are loaded with a ton of content you won't ever need, and end up bogging down your device.

That being said, nothing is undoable, and you can always uninstall any builds or add-ons easily. If you would like to experiment with a build, we recommend installing the No Limits Magic Build which offers a wide array of important add-ons and apps for Kodi in one installation.

To install the No Limits Magic Build, please visit our easy to follow, step-by-step tutorial.
