Jailbreak Firestick – What Does it Mean?

Jailbreaking a Firestick is the process of removing restrictions imposed by the manufacturer to allow for the installation of unauthorized software.

what is jailbreaking a firestick

When we do this, we can install 3rd party applications not available within the Amazon App Store.

Once we jailbreak a Firestick, we can sideload applications onto the device that we normally can’t get through the major app stores.

By doing so, your Firestick will have access to thousands of free movies, TV shows, live channels, sports, and more.

These apps are oftentimes referred to as “jailbroken apps” which we can easily install on our device.

Best Apps for Jailbroken Firestick

This is a safe process and only involves changing a few security settings on the Firestick or Fire TV.

This is possible on Fire TV devices due to the fact that they are running on the Android operating system.

What Stores Carry Firesticks?

If you don’t own a Fire TV Stick and you want to get started with this tutorial today, we have you covered.

Below are some retail stores that may carry this device.

Best Buy, Staples, Target, Fry’s, Radio Shack, GameStop, B and H, Amazon Books, Electronic Express, Shopko, Toys R Us, Sears, P.C. Richard & Son, Meijer, HH Gregg, Fred Meyer.

What stores carry Firesticks?

If you don’t have one of these stores near, you may purchase the Firestick directly through the Amazon website which provides fast shipping.

Or, if you are looking for a completely hands-free experience, you may want to consider jailbreaking the Amazon Fire TV Cube.

The Fire TV Cube has the same capabilities as the Firestick but with some added features.

This includes a built-in speaker, 16 GB of storage, and far-field voice control.

Is Jailbreaking a Firestick Legal?

The short answer is Yes, Jailbreaking a firestick is 100% legal. This is a question we receive on a daily basis.

Is Jailbreaking a Firestick Legal & Safe?

While jailbreaking became a popular term for Android mobile and iOS devices, the process for a Firestick is different.

By enabling apps from unknown sources within settings, we are simply allowing for the installation of 3rd party apps (APKs) that have not been vetted by Amazon.

While installing these apps is not in any way illegal, streaming some of the content within these is.

That is why it is important to only use these applications for Movies and TV Shows that are available in the public domain.

Legal Copyright Disclaimer: TROYPOINT is a tech website that publishes tutorials, news, and reviews. We do not verify if apps, services, or websites hold the proper licensing for media that they deliver. We do not own, operate, or re-sell any streaming site, service, app, or addon. Each person shall be solely responsible for media accessed and we assume that all visitors are complying with the copyright laws set forth within their jurisdiction. Users should be cautious of free streaming applications not available for install through respective app stores such as Amazon App Store and Google Play. If using unverified apps such as these, you should only be streaming or downloading content not protected by copyright such as works in the Public Domain. Referenced applications, addons, services, and streaming sites are not hosted or administered by TROYPOINT.

One other thing to note when using these “unverified” applications is that we do not know the developers of these various apps.

This makes using a VPN in conjunction with them extremely important to protect your data and security.

Below, you will find a screenshot guide on how to jailbreak a Firestick. This will work on all Fire TV devices.

Continue reading below for important privacy settings you should change on your jailbroken Firestick to protect yourself online.

Warning! Protect Yourself With IPVanish VPN

Most cord-cutters use a IPVanish VPN and rightfully so.

The free streaming applications, addons, and IPTV services that you use are usually hosted on insecure servers.

Without a IPVanish, your IP Address is being logged.

Your IP Address points back to your location and identity which compromises both your privacy and security.

Your current identifying IP Address is 2600:1009:b00a:a519:60c8:c0f:13a5:f05a

When you use IPVanish, your real IP address will be converted into an anonymous new one.

IPVanish VPN will provide you with an anonymous connection to the Internet.

This will prevent your Internet Service Provider, app/addon developers, government agencies, and any 3rd party from logging what you’re accessing online.

The most popular VPN among cord-cutters is IPVanish due to their blazing fast speeds and zero log policy.

It’s important to use a VPN that is fast since we are streaming large HD files. Its also crucial to find one that keeps no logs of what their subscribers access while online.

Setting up IPVanish VPN on your streaming device is simple!

Step 1 Register for an IPVanish VPN account by clicking the link below.

From the home screen hover over Find.

Step 5 – Click the IPVanish VPN app.

Step 6 – Click Download.

Step 7 – Once the IPVanish app installs, click Open.

Once the IPVanish app installs, click Open.

Step 8 – Enter your IPVanish account information and click Log In.

You will get your username and password when you register for an account.

Enter your IPVanish account information and click Log In.

Step 9 – Click Connect.

Click Connect.

Step 10 – Click OK.

Click OK.

Step 11 – Success! Your identifying IP Address has changed and you are now anonymous.

New IP Address

Click the Home Button on your remote and the VPN will remain running in the background.

Congratulations! You are now protected by IPVanish which means everything that you stream or access through your Firestick or Android TV Box is hidden from the rest of the world.

If you ever need to stop the VPN service, simply re-launch the application and click the DISCONNECT button.

You can now setup IPVanish VPN on all of your other Internet-connected devices. You can use IPVanish on unlimited devices!

Change Privacy Settings

Before we dive in any further, there are a few privacy settings we want to change. I personally don’t like the idea of Amazon knowing what we are doing on this device.

1. First, hover over the settings icon and click Preferences.

Jailbreak Firestick - Change Privacy Settings

Local Channels

Local channels are a common concern among new cord-cutters wanting to watch local programming on their jailbroken Firestick.

Especially with cable and satellite companies dropping more local channels from their offerings due to contract disputes.

Whether it’s your local FOX, ABC, NBC, PBS, or other sub-channels, the guide below will provide both free and paid options for streaming local channels.

How to Stream Local Channels Without Cable

You can also install an inexpensive IPTV Service (Internet Protocol Television), which gives users access to their favorite channels found in cable and satellite packages.

This is a great way to eliminate cable and cut the cord entirely! This is especially popular among sports fans looking to watch their favorite teams and the big PPV events.

Users can also install a Free IPTV service or application on a Firestick or Fire TV. However, these often buffer and are not as reliable as a paid IPTV Service.

Many Firestick users that stream unverified IPTV services/apps on their devices also run a VPN for IPTV.

Jailbreak Firestick for Live Sports

Similar to watching live TV on a jailbroken Firestick, most cord-cutters are also looking for the best options for streaming live sports and PPV events.

Whether it’s football, basketball, soccer, baseball, boxing, or MMA, jailbreaking a Firestick will allow you to watch any sporting event you can think of.

Jailbroken Firestick Apps for Miscellaneous Utilities

Mouse Toggle

Mouse Toggle

Some of the applications that you side-load onto your Firestick or Fire TV won’t work well with the remote control.

The reason for this is that many of these Android applications are designed for phones and tablets, not televisions.

IPVanish VPN

IPVanish

TROYPOINT does not verify the legality or security of any applications covered on this Website. Users should always use a VPN in conjunction with these free or low-cost streaming solutions to protect their identity and security.

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

In addition, some of the apps that you would want to download are restricted by the Amazon App Store since they are unverified apps.

However, you can side-load them into your device without using the official app distribution method with the help of a VPN for Firestick, Fire TV, and Fire TV Cube.

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

History of Jailbreaking a Firestick

The Firestick comes equipped with the Amazon App Store, which allows us to install applications easily onto our streaming device.

Each of the applications within this App Store must be approved by Amazon.

Some popular apps available in the Amazon App Store include HBO Max, Netflix, YouTube, Disney Plus, Downloader, and more.

Since the Fire TV Stick was first released in 2014, Amazon has taken a strong stance against applications that promote free and low-cost streaming capabilities.

Jailbreak Firestick history

The most notable ban was in June of 2015 when they removed the popular Kodi media center application from their app store.

When Kodi was removed from the Amazon App store, users started jailbreaking their Firesticks so that they could still install this popular application.

This opened the flood-gates for many other free and low-cost streaming applications that could be installed as well after enabling apps from unknown sources on the Fire TV devices.

Most people don’t realize that the Amazon Fire TV Stick is powered by the Android operating system.

This differs from other popular streaming devices such as the Roku and Apple TV which use their own operating system. Therefore, you can’t jailbreak a Roku device.

      When you sign up for troypoint subscription you get a free guide emailed to you that shows you how to get started with video walk-through.

  2. I’m setting up a new cube and am not able to move my icons anymore. There is no option under the 3 lines. Any work arounds?
    Thanks

  3. I like what I see, My issue is that I want to watch baceball this season, mlb or masn or masn 2. Is there a app that I can side load on my fire stick for sports. This whole thing I read through nothing about sports. Tv and movies I don’t much care about, Baseball is my thing. Can you help. Thanks, Lee

    The kodi build has a flaw in it, when you use keyboard , to enter a build

    instead of : there is ; so typing in http:// doesn’t work

  5. glad I came across your email. Your in depth uploads on youtube made me a fan nearly immediately. so many push the sale of these, but I too enjoy creating, modding, etc.. You made things clear, easy to work with, and I look forward to following you again through your own sites. Thank you for the professional teachings which I have my son who is now 11 but like his dad loves learning. I slacked on the updates and time to decide Which route i want to go with my fire stick. Great site, great, info, just a big shout out! The one question I would have is what would I want to remove to so called ” start fresh “
