Fire TV & FireStick, Install Guides, Streaming, Videos

This tutorial shows you how to perform the Kodi Fire Stick install process using the new (2017) method – this method requires no ES File Explorer, no sideload app, and no root / jailbreak access required.  So sit back, grab the Fire TV remote, and install Kodi Fire Stick in about 5 minutes with this guide:

  1. Enable ADB Debugging on your Fire Stick by going to Settings > System.  Then make sure ADB Debugging and Apps From Unknown Source are both turned on.
  2. Go to the Fire TV home screen by pressing the Home button on the Fire Stick remote
  3. Now go to SEARCH (which is a small icon of a magnifying glass in the newest version of Fire OS)
  4. Once you’re in the Search area, enter “downloader” to search for the Downloader app
  5. In the search results, select “Apps & Games”.
  6. Then select the Downloader app
  7. Install the Downloader app
  8. After the Downloader is installed, press “Open” to open the Downloader app
  9. Once the Kodi Downloader app launches, enter “http://bit.ly/kodi161arm” into the Downloader app.
  10. Then press DOWNLOAD
  11. Wait for the file to download
  12. When the file download is complete, press “Open File
  13. Your Fire Stick will ask if you’d like to “Install” or “Cancel”.  Select “Install” to install Kodi Fire Stick.
  14. After Kodi is done installing, press “Open” or “Launch” to run Kodi for the first time
  15. If you get an error message saying “Cannot download OBB” when you launch Kodi for the first time, try to launch Kodi again several times.  Many users get this error, but it’s immediately resolved for most users by trying to launch Kodi again.
  16. Now install TV Addons and make sure to use this Online Security service to protect yourself while streaming.

Install Kodi Build

  • A descendent of Kodi Beast, the Supremacy Build is another great Kodi build.  See How to Install Supremacy Build now.
