What Does A Jailbroken Firestick Do And Are They Legal?

Filed Under:

Many people ask me all the time about the legality of a Jailbroken Firestick and how they work.

There is a lot of misinformation out there about if a jailbroken Fire Stick is legal. Some people never seem to have a problem, where others have gotten legal notices for using their devices. So what’s the truth about streaming on a jailbroken Firestick?

First off, don’t worry. Jailbroken Firesticks are legal, and you cannot get in trouble for having one. It is also not illegal to install the popular media player KODI, or KODI “addons” that allow you to stream TV, sports, and movies from all over the world.

All of the content, even PPV’s and live sports are being streamed from international servers, so there is no downloading of videos and the stream sources do not come from torrents. Torrents are not legal in any shape or form.

How some people get in trouble using their jailbroken Amazon Fire Stick.

Still, you may have heard about some people receiving legal notices about streaming protected content. What gives? This is because even though a jailbroken Firestick with KODI is not illegal, it is still up to the customer to ensure that what they are watching is legal to stream in their region.

We do not condone illegal streaming under any circumstance. However, many times it may be difficult to tell that is legal for you and what is not. You certainly do not want to receive accidentally receive a legal notice merely for trying to watch your favorite show.

The solution is using a VPN for your Firestick

For this reason, we highly recommend using a VPN service to mask your internet traffic from your ISP. Our favorite VPN here at firestick.io is IPVanish, as they have come out with a native app for Fire TV users. Also, one subscription will allow you to use it across all of your devices.

(To find out more, and how to install the IPVanish app on your Firestick or Fire TV box, see our tutorial here.)

A hacked or “jailbroken” device will work similar to Netflix or HULU with everything being available on demand, and the content of what’s being streamed is extensive. There is every sporting event, movie, show, streaming TV and too much more to list here ready to be viewed at anytime, even live TV! In fact, almost anything you can think of is available on KODI.

Once you have KODI installed, you can get third party add-ons that stream their content through your streaming device. You will have access to any Movie, TV Show, International content, Live Sports, Live TV, Live PPV, and even XXX adult content. Its all available on a Jailbroken KODI streaming device such as the Amazon Firestick.

They upgrade all the domains to the most popular add-ons so they will work for many years to come, and we also patch any add-on that needs it like SportsDevil and Genesis in order to remove content blocks. This is very important. They have dozens of extra features, premium add-ons, and apps that other Firestick sellers don’t offer because this kind of KODI installation is time-consuming.

These Jailbroken devices take 45 minutes to program and install all the features such as a live TV tab, a TV on demand tab, a live sports tab, a kids zone tab, an International TV tab, and a favorites tab with everything you need in one place. No other sellers offers as many features and upgrades as they do.

  • They also constantly update their instructional guide to address any problems customers encounter and provide step by step instructions on fixes.

Most all competitors’ KODI media streaming TV players do NOT support Automatic Updates that are crucial to your device. Roughly 99% of the boxes on the market do not come with automatic updating software and most do not provide you with a way to update your KODI add-ons, software or firmware which is critical.

Did you know that 99% of the “Cheap” boxes on Amazon and eBay do not supply Automatic Updates or Technical Support or Warranties? TechLife.tv has been doing this for many years now, and sell more devices than any seller out there.

All streaming media TV boxes periodically need software, add-on, and firmware updates to enhance user experience. Every add-on is different. They all have their own maintenance and video link updates.

This is a designed, upgraded, and perfected KODI build that has gone through dozens of updates to where it is now nearly flawless. Shop here for the best deals, support, content and a no hassle return policy.

What do I need in order to use a Jailbroken Fire Stick?

  1.  High-speed internet. 10mbps or more is recommended for best performance on a streaming device. Of course, the faster your WIFI is the better your streams will be. This will help you avoid buffering problems on your jailbroken Kodi device.
  2. HDMI input on your TV. This comes standard on most modern TV’s. The HDMI port is where you will connect the Firestick to your TV. We highly recommend using the included HDMI extender cable to optimize the location of your Firestick. The further your Firestick is from the TV, the better your WiFi reception will be.
  3. Power cord. There should be one included, plug it into a wall outlet. After you install and power on your Firestick you will simply enter your WiFi password.
  4. Amazon account. Don’t worry, this is free to create and only takes about a minute or so to do. In fact, the whole process of installing your new Amazon Firestick only takes about 10 minutes.

What Does JailBroken Mean And How Does It Work?

Some streaming products do not support officially support third-party software. A jailbreak is software manipulation that allows for installation of third-party apps like KODI. We use that term a lot on our website and in our tutorials because it’s a common search term when people are looking for devices like the ones we sell.

But, our units are not jailbroken… Amazon Fire TV and Android TV Box software is open source which allows installation of third-party applications. Therefore we can program these units without any need for jailbreaking, but again it’s a term that is thrown around on the web, so we too use it when referring to our streaming TV devices.

Are Jailbroken Firesticks Easy To Use?

There is a learning curve to getting good at viewing what you want when you want, but you should be able to find almost anything if you have a little patience.

How-To Use Free Television App

  1. Choose the add-on you want. Add-ons are essentially apps. They contain the TV and sports links to the streaming content. You’ll find shortcut icons to the most popular add-ons directly under the “VIDEOS” menu on your home screen, but navigating to the “Add-On’s” tab will give you many more options to choose from. You can also install any new add-ons you desire.
  2. Browse through the add-on, or go ahead and search for the shows you wish to watch with the free TV app.
  3. At this point, you might be asked to “Select a Source”. Sources are streams of content. When it comes to sources or the streams, some work better than others (it depends on many factors), you’ll quickly figure out which ones you like and which ones work best for your TV streaming needs.
