The Amazon Firestick and Fire TV make the perfect gift, especially once they have been loaded with the best streaming APKs and tools.
These inexpensive devices will provide hours of free entertainment for the lucky person in your life who will be receiving this as a gift.
I have given these to friends and family members over the past few years and they are still thanking me for this gift that keeps on giving!
The best way to do this is by first logging into your Amazon account on the device that you will be giving.
The first thing that you will want to do is load up all of the best free streaming apps and tools.
The best way to do that is through the TROYPOINT App which includes the Rapid App Installer. This will allow you to install everything in a matter of minutes.
Once you have completed that, you must clear data for any apps that hold sensitive login information that you may have already input. This also includes applications that hold Real-Debrid and Trakt.tv credentials as well. If you didn’t input any login information, you can obviously skip this step.
After you have cleared data, all you need to do is de-register your device.
By clearing the data and de-registering, you are ensuring that all of your credentials are wiped off the device prior to gifting.
TROYPOINT Tip: Spend the extra $10 for the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K because it is a much better streaming device than the 2nd Generation Firestick. See my Fire TV Stick 4K review here.
