How To Reset Kodi On Fire TVThis tutorial will show you how to quickly reset Kodi on Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, or Fire TV Cube.  By doing this, you will not be required to reinstall Kodi, which takes additional time on the Fire TV or Firestick.

For those of us who participate in the Kodi hobby, we understand that we must reset Kodi on a somewhat regular basis to keep it running at peak performance.

If for some reason, resetting Kodi on the Fire TV doesn’t do the trick and you are still experiencing problems, I suggest that you do a factory reset of your Fire TV or Fire TV Stick.

Keep in mind that when you reset Kodi on Fire TV or Fire TV Stick, you will be erasing everything that you have installed within the applications.  Some things to think about are your favorite Kodi add-ons, skins, and settings.  I suggest writing down everything that you want to reinstall after you have done a factory reset on Kodi.

Below you will find the steps necessary to reset or restore Kodi on your Fire TV or Fire TV Stick.  I strongly suggest that you watch the videos before the written instructions for additional details regarding this process.
