TROYPOINT suggests protecting yourself with a VPN when using Kodi to ensure that your Internet Service Provider and/or government isn’t logging your streaming activity.  Use the link below into install a VPN on your Fire TV or Firestick.

You may ask what is a Fire TV?  The Fire TV is a streaming media box manufactured by Amazon that you hook up to your television and it allows you to watch online tv shows, movies, etc.  The Fire TV Stick does the same thing as the box but it is less expensive and easier to conceal than the actual rectangular box.

If you are trying to decide whether you want to install Kodi on a Fire TV device, here are a few things to consider.  The Fire TV Stick has less processing power so it won’t be as snappy as the Fire TV.  Also, The Fire TV Stick does not have expandable storage like the Fire TV.  The Fire TV allows you to add additional storage through a micro sd card or USB thumb drive.

If you don’t currently own an Amazon Fire TV Stick, you may purchase through the Amazon Web site via links here – Fire TVFire TV Stick

Why would want to install Kodi on Fire TV or Firestick?  Because there are endless addons that will provide free entertainment that you would normally pay for.

Kodi doesn’t do much by itself and you must install 3rd party addons that will provide you with free movies, TV shows, sports, adult entertainment, etc.  Use the following link to get my free guide which will show you how to install the best Kodi addons with the click of a button.  This guide has already been accessed by over 200,000 Fire TV/Stick users like you.  You will need this after you install Kodi by using one of the tutorials below.

    troy first time ever having a problem with any of your info… its parsing ive downloaded downloader box now and wanted to update it to 17.4.. but wont let me open file says parsing issue when I hit install

    • Troy October 16, 2017 at 10:25 am - Reply

      Hi Lawrence, this is usually because of your firmware not being updated on your Fire TV. Try going into Fire TV Settings / Device / About / Check for Updates and apply any and all updates available. You may need to go through this process a few times until completely updated.

    I have a first generation fire stick, is it possible to put in the new version of kodi 17.4 myself? The reason I ask this is because I’ve tried everything I can to update my mums kodi box but it’s running on version 15.2 ( was 17.1 before I put it back to factory settings) and no matter what I do I can’t get the new version installed , I think it’s because it can’t support the new version…. HELP!!

    Hi Troy! If there’s a new update for Kodi or titanium does it update it automatically or do I need to update it myself?

    Also when I watch movies on Exodus, nothing comes up. I’m wondering if I need to start all over and uninstall everything. It worked a month ago. 🙂 thanks!

    What is the difference between the Supercharged add-ons and the other builds (Pulse, Terrarium, Beast, ect) I want to stream American sports(NFL, Baseball, UFC) newer movies and tv shows. I just got a Fire Stick and not sure which I should install since I am new to all this.

    • Troy October 12, 2017 at 9:47 am - Reply

      Hi Brian, Pulse and Beast are just different builds with some of the same addons. Terrarium is a stand alone application and has nothing to do with Kodi. If you want dependable live TV, you should look at an IPTV service. I am currently using SET TV and it works great – https://troypoint.com/install-set-iptv-fire-tv-firestick/

        Thank you for getting back to me. I was more curious about the supercharged add ons you have a video for. Is that the same as the other builds or does your have a little of everything. Didn’t know if all builds were the same.

    Sorry if this posts twice. A friend downloaded Kodi for me on the firestick we got a year ago. Kodi was installed in April 2017. Kodi worked about A month quit. I have up on it at that point. I decided to try and fix it today. Watched your video and tried to update. Went to screen about first time loading then went black. I could click around and hear traditional Kodi sounds but see nothing. I cleared tyre cache per videos online but still black. I unplugged firestick, same. I deleted Kodi and reloaded it, same. As a last ditch effort, I factory reset, got it loaded following your video, same black screen after Kodi opening screen. Am I doing something wrong or missing something? I used Downloader and your web address listed above. Any ideas or help?

      Hi Morgan, make sure that the Fire TV firmware is up to date. Fire TV Settings / Device / About / Check for Updates. Do the other apps work o.k. on the device?

            Yes. Trying it one more time because it doesn’t even show up on my apps

          • Jim Casy October 7, 2017 at 8:19 pm

            This is one that should pretty much always work. I’ve not seen the white screen thingy all the times that i’ve done it. Kodi always goes on flawless so long as the file downloads (i.e. typed in the correct url/ server not down).

    I followed the video instructions and it appears as though everything was done correctly but when I go back to the home screen, then apps, Kodi is not there. I went back into system, tools and download manager and tried it again. Now my system shows 2 Kodi installs but can’t get to either one of them. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for any help you can give me.

      Debbie, what device are you using and which of the above methods? Using Downloader and a 2nd generation Fire TV or Stick should work 99/100 unless Troy’s server is down, but you would see a different kind of message for that.

    My firestick keeps crashing – going to a black screen then “Amazon” then “Firestick” then the home screen. I have deleted all apps I don’t use, uninstalled and reinstalled Kodi with Titanium, I use IPVanish. Now it resets back to the home screen, but won’t move from there. How do I fix it?

    • Jim Casy October 2, 2017 at 4:24 pm - Reply

      If you are using your TV’s USB port, make sure the USB port reads 1.0 and not 0.5. If your port is 0.5 you need to use wall power and not the TV power.
      Yes, it is very wise on a Firestick to dump every single bit of stuff you don’t use (carefully making sure you don’t need it).
      Reset all of your internet (ie modem router) and device (fire TV) connections.

      As a shot in the dark I have found an app on the Amazon store I really like called “Clean Master” it has a simple interface and cleans up all your cache, free’s memory and gets rid of useless install files and fragments. I use it daily to improve my device performance.
      Factory Data Reset does not sound out of the question if the above do not work since you are proficient in downloading Kodi/builds/apps.

      • Charlotte Leon October 3, 2017 at 8:30 am - Reply

        Thanks. I chatted online with Amazon support yesterday and this is a problem the new firesticks have they were aware of and working on a fix. I left it unplugged and idle last night, plugged it in this morning, held the Home button down about 15 sections (not sure that did it or it got the fix after being plugged in a minute) and it unfroze and so far still working. Thanks for the reset instructions. Your emails and website have been invaluable. I have Titanium on Kodi and have been able to give up cable and other straming services. Couldn’t have done it without you.

            It seems it’s not my firestick that is crashing, it’s Kodi. Everything else on the firestick plays. How do I fix?

          • Jim Casy October 6, 2017 at 6:52 pm

            Sounds like you’ve determined that your Kodi has gone rogue. If it were me, I’d start over with a new Kodi install.
            On this site, make sure you get the Supercharge Fire TV/Stick Guide With Bonus Videos…using the link on the featured comment of this thread (at the top). It will show you how to redo Kodi from scratch and also how to get the things that most people want onto their devices.

          • Charlotte Leon October 7, 2017 at 8:46 am

            I’ve done that multiple times. When I then try to put Titanium build on it, it crashes while downloading from the Supreme build section – goes out to a black screen them brings Amazon then Fire Stick back up. I have put Kodi 17.4 and Titanium on 2 other firesticks and 2 tablets and they are not crashing.

          • Jim Casy October 7, 2017 at 7:53 pm

            Ok, since you’ve shown that you’ve been able to do this procedure on 2 other Sticks and 2 tablets and Kodi is not having any issues and the Supreme Builds FB group is not reporting any problems with the build and this method always works unless server is down and it hasn’t been
            Then most likely something has either got to be wrong with your stick physically or maybe there is some corrupted code on your device. Also, TV, internet, connections…check those things.
            If you haven’t already wiped your Fire completely clean then that would be what I would do and start from the very beginning like it was just out of the box.

          • Charlotte Leon October 7, 2017 at 8:19 pm

            I already did a Factory Data Reset on the fire stick, reinstalled Kodi and when downloafing the supreme build in Titanium it crashes every time now. Streaming Directv Now, Netflix and amazon PrIme all works on the fire stick. Kodi is the only thing that has crashed on this fire stick, and now I can’t get through a complete download of Titaniuum without it crashing.

          • Jim Casy October 7, 2017 at 8:23 pm

            That’s wild. Could be something happening when you are in the Supreme wizard doing the download. All I can think of for that part is make sure IPVanish is off, pick 17.4 and I believe Titanium is on 2.5 and I usually use US server 1, but did 2 yesterday and it worked OK. Download speeds were decent but not great.

          • Charlotte Leon October 8, 2017 at 7:52 am

            Thanks for all your help.

          • Jim Casy October 9, 2017 at 1:29 am

            NP. BTW, Supreme Builds, makers of Titanium, have a FB group (same name) you can join and a Youtube channel you can subscribe to. Since you maybe have isolated your issue to something happening while downloading/installing their stuff, they might have a quick solution. Could be a problem they’ve seen dozens of times if not more. They seem like pretty decent guys.

          • Jim Casy October 7, 2017 at 8:15 pm

            **EDIT: Also, maybe make sure IPvanish is turned off when doing the actual Titanium download. They only let each IP download twice a day per server. If you have IPVanish on, then the IP you are using has a good chance of having been used already that day.

    Hi Troy, Do you have a resource to add NFL redzone / NFL football to Kodi?

    • Jim Casy September 29, 2017 at 3:02 pm - Reply

      The Players Klub has a Kodi addon (5-8 dollars per connection), Gears (as good as SET TV) has a Kodi addon (15 dollars per connection has a free EPG but I like paying the extra 2.50 per month for the Mayfair Pro EPG). SET TV (20 per month–THREE connections) is a very good standalone apk on FireTV, but I’ve heard some people have found a way to get it into Kodi on a pure Andriod box (Google/Youtube).
      Personally, to be safe, I am keeping all 3 of these services throughout football season, as I have cut the cord. Total cost for all 3 services = 42.50 per month. Cost for me will cut at least in half after football season is over.

      There is also a way to get the NFL Europe apk on your device if you are an advanced user and have IPvanish or another good VPN. Cool thing about NFL Europe is you can do 1 week, non recurring subscriptions (22 USD though for one weekend).

      Elysium hasn’t worked in quite some time for me. I am on current Titanium build and Kodi 17.4. Covenant is up and running. Try unplugging modem/router/firestick, give it about a minute and then plug them back in. Might just be hung up.

    I’ve got kodi krypton 17.4 on my firestick. but when I try to watch a movie, it plays fine to about the half way mark & then stops. system goes dark and back to home screen. is there any way to make that stop?

    • Jim Casy September 26, 2017 at 6:03 am - Reply

      The PVR client message is probably just from some trash app on your stick. If you can find it you can disable it in my addons. As far as your Firestick rebooting mid movie, this could be a space/memory issue. Firesticks just don’t have a lot of horsepower. Get rid of any unused stuff. And..
      Clear the cache on Kodi each time before you use it—clearing the cache helps a lot, normally. SETTINGS/APPLICATIONS/MANAGE INSTALLED APPLICATIONS/KODI/CLEAR CACHE …cache should go down to about 12KB, displayed on the right. Kodi should be snappier for at least a little awhile after that. It is good to get into a habit of doing that regularly (daily is good).
      Not saying that’s your problem, just that is what i used to do with my Firestick before I switched to the box and it helped a lot.

      Sandy, go into Fire TV Settings / Applications / Manage Applications / Kodi and uninstall it. Then, reinstall with the first video above. Something didn’t install properly on your Fire TV.

    I typed in downloader, I see the icon as it appears in the video, I click it and it says “app not found”
    if I can’t even get the first step to work, how am I going to do this install? so frustrating

      Josh, make sure that your Fire TV firmware is up to date. You can find that in Fire TV Settings / Device / About / Check for Updates. Also, try restarting both your device and router if that doesn’t work.

    Hi I started with a 1st gen fire stick, and upgraded to 2nd gens (fire stick & box) when they came out. I’ve been with Troy since the get GI. By the way, thanks Troy for all you do.
    So here’s the problem every time I want to do an update, or add on. My Firebox is a gaming edition, and only came with a game controller. I’ve been having so much trouble with trying to update Jodi I just deleted it & re installed it through Downloader. It seemed to install fine, but when I try to go to Kodi settings nothing. I can push every button on my game controller and it doesn’t budge. Its also telling me it looks like I’ve installed a new controller do I want to go to settings? It has a yes/no option but won’t allow me to go to yes.
    I guess I’m just going to have to buy a new remote, unless someone can help me out with this. Now, Kodi isn’t even showing up on my downloaded apps even though I’ve installed it again. Aggravated in Chi Town!

      Maybe try to use the remote from the 2nd gen firestick you mentioned in the first sentence to help you get into the settings when it asks you and where your game controller wont do it for you. Unpair it from your fire stick first. Make sure power is off to all other Amazon Fire devices and (i think) hold down the home button on the remote for 10 seconds directly in front of the box you want to pair and it should go into pairing…(i think that’s how it goes…but Google is good if not).
