How To Reset Kodi On Fire TVThis tutorial will show you how to quickly reset Kodi on Fire TV or Fire TV Stick.  By doing this, you will not be required to reinstall Kodi, which takes additional time on the Fire TV or Firestick.

For those of us who participate in the Kodi hobby, we understand that we must reset Kodi on a somewhat regular basis to keep it running at peak performance.

If for some reason, resetting Kodi on the Fire TV doesn’t do the trick and you are still experiencing problems, I suggest that you do a factory reset of your Fire TV or Fire TV Stick.

Keep in mind that when you reset Kodi on Fire TV or Fire TV Stick, you will be erasing everything that you have installed within the applications.  Some things to think about are your favorite Kodi addons, skins, and settings.  I suggest writing down everything that you want to reinstall after you have done a factory reset on Kodi.

Below you will find the steps necessary to reset or restore Kodi on your Fire TV or Fire TV Stick.  I strongly suggest that you watch the video below the instructions for additional details regarding this process.

  1. Close out of Kodi on your Fire TV is you are inside of it and go to the Fire TV or Firestick home screen.
  2. Go into the Settings tab toward the bottom of your Fire TV screen.
  3. Click the Applications tab.
  4. Scroll down and click Manage Applications.
  5. Scroll down and click Kodi.
  6. Scroll down and click Clear Data.
  7. You will receive the following message “Delete app data?”.
  8. Click Clear data once again.
  9. Push the up button on your remote and then “Launch Application”.
  10. Confirm that Kodi has been reset to factory defaults.

IMPORTANT!  Many Internet Service Providers are starting to block access to Kodi addons, builds, and wizards.  To avoid receiving threatening letters regarding copyright violations on your part, you must use a VPN service while using Kodi.  A VPN service will encrypt your Internet connection and hide your ip address so your provider doesn’t know what you are streaming or downloading.

    Hello Troy,
    I am having problems with fire stick ??.
    The home page isn’t,t showing Kodi on it , I tried downloading and reinstalling but still no shoe ???.
    I was very pleased therefore to receive your group email which I just watched.
    I was sceptical because your first bit of info was to go into settings and empty catch on Kodi !!!.
    Ha ha I thought, , you,ll be lucky ! , I don,t have it on my stick , but I filled your directions and was surprised to see Kodi in there .????
    So I carried on and cleared the cache, and rebooted hoping to find Kodi showing, No such luck.
    Can you tell this old codger what he is owing wrong ??.
    I really do appreciate the help you make available, , I am afraid the brain is slowly going to God, but I,m not ready to follow it just yet.
    Hope you can help.

      Hello Norman, I also replied to your email. I think you need to update your Fire TV firmware as it sounds like you may still be on an old version. As of Fire TV, all sideloaded apps should appear on home screen on Fire TV.

    • Hello Mariah, once you get Kodi installed, go into your Fire TV settings and make sure that your Fire TV is up to date. You can check fro updates within Fire TV settings. Once updated, the apps that you sideload should show up on Amazon dashboard.

Clicked on Kodi icon and got brief error message that says “This app is not associated with your amazon account” Now it just goes to a blank screen and doesn’t launch. Is this why reset is needed?
