How to Install Kodi on Firestick, Fire TV, Fire TV Cube In Under 2 Minutes

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 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 alpha version on your Firestick or Fire TV if you would like to test it out.

I suggest using the stable version which is 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, and Fire TV 3.

Kodi by itself doesn’t do much on the Firestick, Fire TV, or Fire TV Cube.  After you install Kodi with the guide below, you must then install addons that will provide access to thousands of movies, tv shows, live channels, sports, music and more.  I have created a Supercharge Kodi Guide that will show you how to install the best addons with the click of a button.

Protect Yourself While Streaming Protect Yourself While Streaming & Downloading

Kodi users should always use a VPN to protect their identity and secure their devices while streaming free movies, TV shows, sports, and live channels.

Your Internet Service Provider, government, and hackers may log what you are accessing online if you aren't connecting through a VPN.

I use IPVanish on all of my streaming devices and I suggest that you do the same.

Supercharge Firestick or Fire TV Guide


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.

Install VPN On Firestick or Fire TV

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.

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.

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.

    I followed your most recent turorials to the letter. When I start Kodi, it says I don’t have “PDR” (?) enabled. (I think it’s PDR, I’ve uninstalled Kodi 17.6. I’m ready to start again. Shouild I uninstall the other programs you had us install? I also notice that the add-ons are still on my Fire TV, but ask for login when I click on them.

    Hey Troy. I currently have Nordvpn and all of my amazon options don’t function when the VPN is turned on. It’s like amazon doenst like the VOPN and restricts it. Is this the same with IPvanish?

    Hi Troy … installed Kodi on FireTv …and then No Limits build.
    Done this a few times – great videos.
    Would like your advice .. had been watching NCIS. Set 13 …. now when I search, (Placenta) it lists episodes, even pics & details … but when I select … get ‘no streams’
    Same on Elysium Lite and Oculus.
    Even episodes which show a tick for having watched previously have no streams.

    Is there something I need to set/reset … or is this just Kodi. ?

      Have you tried clearing your cache in Kodi or resetting the entire thing? Sometimes that helps, otherwise, you could try installing Terrarium TV to view content.

      Hello, even though this is a free app, Amazon still requires that you have a form of payment on account to install through their app store. Just go into your online Amazon account and enter a credit card into your payment settings.

      Hello, try restarting your router. Unplug it for a few minutes and then plug back in. Placenta should provide plenty of sources. If you aren’t using a VPN, there is a chance that your ISP is blocking these from loading within Kodi. Try turning on VPN.

    I’m trying to upgrade a friends Firetv second generation. I am having a problem downloading zip files for the various add-on’s selected (Durex, Neptune Rising, etc.) I have done/checked the following.
    Reset the FTV to original condition.
    Installed Terrarium, Freeflix apks successfully.
    Installed Kodi 17.6 successfully.
    Turned on ADB bugging and Apps from unknown sources.
    Launch Kodi and follow the steps to “add source”
    I type in exactly as shown (name durex).
    I then migrate back to “Install from zip file”.
    The folder shows up.
    My issue is that there is nothing in the folder and clicking it kicks me back to the previous level.
    I have tried the same with several other zips with the same result.
    I have selected expert mode, uninstalled and redone the above several times with the same results.
    BTW- when I reconnect my own amazon firetv it works perfectly.
    Could there be something corrupted in the Android software.? Help!.

    I used to use the kodi app and went thru all that hassle to download apks and add-ons etc and it can get very confusing trying to wade thru all those settings and preferences. I have totally dropped kodi I don’t even have it on my stick anymore. I use an app called terrarium TV which u download directly from the downloader app and it comes 100% set up ready to go and is immensely more simpler to use than kodi. It looks way more professional and actually is set up very similar to the home screen of the firestick/firetv menu. It has both movies and TV shows even ones airing that same day. Definitely suggest you guys to at least test it out and I guarantee you will prefer it over kodi and all of the pains in the asses that come with it lol thanks for listening!

      Try resetting or restarting your device and see if that helps. Or if using a VPN, disabling while installing.

    I have been a subscriber for well over a year now and wanted to make a few comments.
    1. Having spent my entire life working with the public I can say that your down to Earth approach to your subscribers is OUTSTANDING!
    2. The various installation tutorials you publish are very THOROUGH.
    3. The items that you give away are PHENOMENAL.

    Whenever I hear someone discussing issues with Kodi or their streaming device of choice, the first thing I do is tell them to check out Troypoint. Thank You for the Great Service Troy!

      @ Shawn : About Kodi not loading
      @ Jan Turbring: About the Kodi screen staying black after start

      Go to Settings/Applications/Managed Installed Applications/
      Select Kodi App. –> Then Clear Cache…+ Force Stop!

      Go back to Settings /Choose Device and Restart!

      That should solve a series of problems and give Kodi a new kick!

You can also move to the front of the list on that screen by highlighting Kodi, press options button on remote and then drop in front of list so it shows up on Fire TV home screen.

    I “cut the cord ” on cable several months ago and tried streaming with Kodi Covenant. am using amazon fire tv (prime). I very much regret cutting the cord and opting for streaming with Kodi. When I do fine a movie (usually “stream not available”) the buffer issue makes the whole experience horrible. Do I need another build ? My download speed varies: 23 – 28 mbps. When doing my research on Kodi (B4 cutting the cord) I should have remembered the old axiom – “When something seems to good to be true – it usually is ” Seriously considering “cutting the Kodi” and going back to DISH. Sure – it costs more but at least I don’t have to see “no stream available” 75% of the time and don’t have to put up with buffering.
    really need some help here and would be app very much

      Hello, the one from Amazon app store is optimized for the Fire TV or Firestick. The other one is simply their stock Android version. You can sideload the apk if you would like by using ADBLink – You will need to find a way to download the latest version of the .apk.

    Thank you for your posts and tutorials. They truly are helpful and much appreciated. I deleted Kodi completely only to reinstall as I had an older version and never seemed to have updated properly (kept notify to update, but had most updated available).

    Hi Troy, I am new to all this. Can you please help me understand the role of Kodi on my Fire TV? I have the new Fire TV and installed Kodi following your instructions. I am not having any problems with Kodi buts its just that I do not seem to use it. I have installed Terrarium and IP Vanish. I am successfully using Terrarium and IP Vanish. I am getting ready to install Players Club also. But it seems like these are installed and accessed outside or separate of Kodi. I can open Kodi but there isn’t any content in it.So I guess my question is, what is Kodi used for and is it necessary to use the others like Terrarium and Players Club? Is Kodi playing a role interacting with these others I mentioned that I’m just not understanding? Thank you for helping me understand all this.

    • Troy January 21, 2018 at 12:52 pm - Reply

      Hi Cliff, you must install addons for Kodi to function similar to Terrarium TV, and the other streaming apps. My Supercharge Guide above goes through how to install all of the best Kodi addons at once. Yes, many of these come as stand-alone applications that you can install on the Fire TV. Most IPTV services allow you to install an Addon within Kodi so you can use their service in that app as well. See my tutorial on PK here (Kodi Addon Install Steps) –

    Hey Troy, regards from the UK. I’ve followed all your videos and this week tried to update Supreme Builds but when I click on any of the servers it says Invalid Zip URL. I’ve double checked the details, all inputted correct, I’ve now waited 24 hours to pass but it’s still saying the same thing. I’ve just tried now by clearing all data on Kodi and doing your whole supercharge video again but still no joy. Unplugged cables, done all the usual, any suggestions mate?

    • Troy January 13, 2018 at 5:04 pm - Reply

      Hi Matt, is it possible that your service provider is blocking the URL? Since you are in UK, I wouldn’t be surprised. Try turning on VPN and do it again.

        Hi, thanks for the prompt response. I’ve had the VPN for a while now, it’s always on so can’t be that. Everything was working fine on the previous build (your video again) but just followed the update as I subscribe to your info. Can I just go back to the previous version? Or should I just add Addons manually which isn’t ideal for the whole Kodi experience obviously. It’s a new Fire TV by the way, incase that matters! Cheers again

        • Troy January 17, 2018 at 10:55 am - Reply

          Matt, I wouldn’t suggest going back to previous build as many of those addons no longer work. I would suggest reinstalling again and make sure you are doing a fresh install. Also, within the build, go directly into the addons that you want to use. Don’t use the “Movies” and “TV Shows” menu items.

      Hello Goxy, try restarting your device. Also, Covenant is not longer added since the developer is no longer maintaining it and it isn’t working well.

    If I disconnect ipvanish Netflix works.
    ipvanish has been on since May 2017 and I have not had this problem until today.

    If I disconnnet ipvanish to watch Netflix will it automatically reconnect when I try to use kodi?

      Hi Paul, within settings of IPV, you can set it to automatically connect. But, I don’t know how to make it auto-connect to Kodi when launching that app. Some of these paid services are blocking VPNs. You may want to try other servers as they simply block by IP address and some of the newer servers may work until they are discovered. I personally just disconnect VPN when using Netflix or Amazon Prime.

    I followed your instructions and, for the most part, had two days of fun running through all the stuff that Kodi has to offer. However, today I was trying to watch some movies but found the playback was horrible. It was constantly buffering. I applied an app that allowed the movie preload and cache, which helped some. Finally, after 4-5 gruelling hours of trying to get it loaded enough to watch without buffering, I finally finished the movie. I decided I needed more frustration, so I ran another movie. I got the same problem with the second movie.

    I decided to try unplugging my fire stick and then restart it all again. But when it came back on and I loaded Kodi, everything was gone. Kodi started but the bar across the screen for main menu, movies, TV Shows, etc. had changed and nothing was under the bar. I tried to clear data and restart Kodi, but it made it worse. I can’t see any movies, TV shows, programs, nothing. It still says I have the Titanium version of Kodi, but I can’t do anything. Should I delete Kodi and reinstall? That seems the best thing to do, but I still don’t know why it all changed, so I have no idea if I’m going to experience the same issue.

      Hello Heidi, yes I would suggest deleting Kodi and starting again. Also, make sure that you delete all applications from the FireStick that you don’t need. Sounds like your Fire TV Stick storage may be almost full.

    I am running 17.6 on my fire stick. I have downloaded the titanium build on an older firestick version before. Currently I am just getting a black screen with a star and a power button in the bottom left corner. I can hear the cursor clicking around though. Any ideas?

    Troy it says these downloads work on a 1st generation firestick. I can only ever get Jarvis to work on them. Everytime I try to get Krypton (no matter what version) it downloads, does the preparing for first run and then the screen goes blank and back to Amazon home screen. Ive put firestick back to factory setting and everything i can think of. Do you know of any fix for this or what I’m doing wrong? It’s happening on all my 1st generation firestick x I have three x just end up having to load Jarvis back on them 🙁

      Hello Alison, make sure that you are applying all of the updates to the Fire TV Stick after you have restored it. Go into Fire TV Settings / Device / About / Check for System Update – keep doing this until all updates have been applied and then try again.

    After many months of testing I have finally come to the decision the Fire Stick is a piece of crap for running Kodi. It does not have enough memory on it. Do not waste your time.

    Hi Troy. I followed your tutorials to upgrade Kodi from 16.1 to 17.6 I first deleted Kodi 16.1 then downloaded and installed 17.6, then followed the video to install the build. Everything installed properly, but when I try to watch anything on Kodi, the audio and video are choppy and the audio goes in and out. When I go back to say, Netflix or Hulu The same thing happens until I restart the firestick. Then everything is ok until I try to use Kodi again. I’m using IPVanish only when running Kodi and according to the speedtest, the issue isn’t the speed. NOTE: before sending this comment, I went back and deleted Kodi completely and reinstalled it and the build. Got the same results. HELP!

I’ve tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling an older version, however, it will not connect to any streams. I realize your recent email addresses the problem for Fire TV / Stick.

    Troy, I have an Amazon Fire TV Box. I am having a lot of issues with Exodus. I have tried all your tips and tricks, but nothing is working. I have checked my internet connection and speeds, re-started over and over. Cleared cache and providers. Everything thing else on my Fire TV works just fine except for Exodus. I get either no stream available or it buffers constantly, making it impossible to watch. I’ve heard that Exodus is going to be dead soon and that Covenant is the replacement. Do you have any advise to fix Exodus? Or should I install Covenant and just give up on Exodus?

    I have a projector which only has 2 HDMI. I could do away with the Blu-ray player, but I am confused about certain options you are changing – do they have to be on a smart TV? Mine is not. No smart TV – the receiver is so old that the only function it really has is to tune in programming which I have paid for. Audio must play through the receiver, but the only thing the receiver has is to use the optical or coax in
    SO I go directly from device to projector via HDMI. There is little I can change about the projector, that is usually what you get. But I am unclear where you are downloading to – computer? I have not dos any wireless between components, and I’d like to keep it that way – HARD WIRE ONLY!.
    If you have time, much appreciated,.

      If still having this problem, try restarting your router. Unplug for a few minutes and then plug back in. Sounds like an Internet connection problem. It doesn’t matter if you put in http or https, it will default either way to the proper address.

I have tried though downloader which is the method I successfully used on my previous Fire stick but it will not let me install. The files downloads to Downloader successfully and I,can view the files in the ‘Files’ tab but it will not let me install Kodi stating ‘No app found to handle this file’. Can you help please?

        OK guys it’s just a problem with “Downloader” app. Download “ES File Explorer” and click “+New” towards the bottom left hand corner, enter the URL link as troy wrote it above, name the file “kodi” or whatever you want if it asks for a file name, continue to download then install it and then you should be good. Hope this helps others having problem with the new 4K Fire tv! ??
