Install Kodi On Amazon Fire TV Stick The Easy Way

Post#1 » Sun May 29, 2016 12:16 pm

If you happen to be the proud owner of an Amazon Fire TV Stick, or are expecting to get one soon, then it’s always handy to know exactly what can and can’t be done with it in terms of extensibility. As is usually the case with streaming devices, users will always look for a way to get up and running with the popular media center software like Kodi. While not all streaming dongles will let you install apps on them, Amazon’s $39 Fire TV Stick certainly does. And while Kodi isn’t available on Amazon’s Appstore, there is a way to sideload and install it on your Fire TV Stick. After all Amazon’s Fire TV Stick is running forked version of Android which means you can sideload just about any APK file on it. Here we show you how in a step-by-step guide.



It is important to note that there are a number of methods of installing Kodi on Amazon Fire TV Stick. The method described here is by far the easiest one and it doesn’t require any computer or Android device to do the installation on Fire TV Stick.

Requirements:
[list]
  • [*]Amazon Fire TV Stick. If you don’t have one, you can get Amazon Fire TV Stick for $39 from Amazon. It’s a must have!

  • [*]Approximately 5-10 minutes of your time.

    Note: This guide is also applicable to Amazon’s Fire TV set-top box.

  • Step 3: Now head over to [i]Search[/i], and then look for [i]ES File Explorer[/i] app in the Appstore. (I had to search for just ES) Once you see the app, download it as you would any other app. It’s free.

  • Step 7: Now from ES File Explorer, scroll down the left panel, and select the recently added [i]Kodi[/i] bookmark. This will invoke the Kodi download webpage within the ES File Explorer.



    Step 8: From this page, select the [i]Android ARM[/i] version and click to download.

  • Step 9: Give the Android ARM version of Kodi time to download to the device. Download times will obviously vary depending on the speed and reliability of the device’s internet connection. When the file has been downloaded, select [i]Open file[/i] > [i]Install[/i], and then [i]Install[/i] again to finalize the process. Once the installation completes, select OK.

    The next time you wish to launch Kodi, you will need to go to [i]Settings[/i] > [i]Applications[/i] > [i]Manage Installed Applications[/i], and scroll down until you find the Kodi app. Select it and click on [i]Launch application[/i].

    Depends on what you watch. The two that I originally put there pretty much took care of the majority of all the repos. Fusion contained most of the repos that anyone needed to really watch movies and TV, Exodus and Phoenix. Exodus itself will pretty much get you anything, but Phoenix has a lot of sports stuff and old movies where Exodus does not.



    Since then, I found SALTS and it was not on XFinity or Fusion.



    As far as the cube thing, it's a pretty expensive "cool" device. My brother uses some box deal called JetStreamBox and I actually prefer the simpler firestick. Its cheap and gets the job done.
