Alternate Methods to Install Kodi on FireStick

The “Downloader” method shown above is the easiest, fastest way to install Kodi.  But if you have trouble with it, there are at least three other ways.  The first and simplest alternate method is to use ES File Explorer to install Kodi.  For a second alternate method, we can use an Android phone or tablet to sideload Kodi to FireStick.  Lastly, you can use a computer program called ADBLink to install Kodi on FireStick using a PC wirelessly (over WiFi).
