This tutorial shows you how to quickly install Kodi 17.1 in order to Update Kodi on FireStick in 2017.

Kodi 17.1 Krypton Security Advisory:   At the same time Kodi 17.1 was released, the United States government repealed Internet Privacy laws.  This means that your own ISP now has the legal right to sell your browsing history to the highest bidder (ex: Verizon AppFlash).  If you want to protect against this, follow my Kodi VPN setup guide (Video tutorial + written guide).  This protects not just your Kodi data, but all of your transferred data.

So, after you update Kodi on FireStick, install Kodi 17.1 addons and protect yourself like I do and use my exclusive coupon code FIRETV25.  This takes 60% off a 1 Year VPN subscription. After that, use my VPN setup guides & written guides to set up VPN service on any device (or all devices), including Amazon Fire Stick.

IMPORTANT:  Make sure to do Step #18 Above.  Here’s why:

Why is Step #18 important?  Step #18 sets up Kodi 17.1 TV Addons on your device and secures your streams by using automated encryption.  Use my Kodi VPN YouTube video to install the VPN on your router, on your FireStick, Android, Windows PC, Mac, iPhone, or any device.

  • If you get a “Cannot download OBB“ error after you install Kodi 17.1, then re-launch Kodi.  Do this until the error goes away.  Many users report that they need to re-launch Kodi up to 5 times for the OBB error to go away.
  • If you’re still using Kodi 16.1 Jarvis, then you need to upgrade to Kodi 17.1 Krypton.  This is true because TV Addons updated their Sources to use HTTPS encryption (stream security).  So Kodi Jarvis will no longer play most TV Addons, and will give you a “check log for details” or other Kodi not working error.  Basically, use the steps above to update to Kodi 17.1 so you can play the (newly-enabled) HTTPS streams!


Check out the video below to see what to do after you install Kodi 17.1 FireStick.  These steps work for Amazon FireTV, Android TV Boxes, and any other device with Kodi installed.  Why?  This is so because Kodi works just the same on all platforms.  Therefore, Kodi is cross-platform (and open-source!).
