Kodi on Firestick, Fire TV, Fire TV Cube

Kodi On Firestick

This step-by-step tutorial will show you how to install Kodi on Firestick (Fire TV Stick), Fire TV, and Fire TV Cube.  This process will also work on Fire TV televisions.

This guide also works great for the new Fire TV Stick 4K, which was released on October 31st, 2018.

Kodi on Firestick or Fire TV will allow you to watch free movies, TV shows, live channels, sports, Pay Per View events and more.

This page is continually updated and will always provide relevant guides with the most recent stable release of Kodi.  As of today, Kodi 17.6 Krypton is the stable version and Kodi 18 Leia is currently in development.

Although Kodi 18 is still being worked on by the developers, you can still install the beta version on your Firestick or Fire TV if you would like to test it out.

I suggest using Kodi 17.6 Krypton on your primary streaming devices until Kodi 18 Leia is considered a stable release.

I have developed 5 different guides to install Kodi on Firestick and the Fire TV, which are outlined below.

In my opinion, the first method is the easiest since you don’t need a computer and it takes less than 2 minutes to complete.

The following methods work on all devices; 1st Generation Fire TV, 1st Generation Fire TV Stick, 2nd Generation Fire TV, 2nd Generation Fire TV Stick, Fire TV 3, and Fire TV Cube.

If you prefer a screenshot tutorial, you may find that below the video tutorial.

TROYPOINT Tip:  You should always use a VPN to protect your identity and security when streaming free movies and TV shows with third party Kodi addons such as this.

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 to install a VPN on your Fire TV or Firestick.

You may ask what is a Fire TV, Firestick, Fire TV Cube?  A Fire TV device 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 or Fire TV Cube.

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

Troy Help ! Today I turned on my TV and Kodi was back to original state. I had Kodi 17.6 installed w/ Durex Build. I tried to reinstall through Rapid App and when opening I see my new screen “Krypton 17.6 and then jumps back to orignal Kodi screen again. I’ve also uninstall/re-installed app and still the same. I’ve done nothing different other than adding a Thumb drive. Any suggestions would be much appreciated
