How To Update Kodi On Fire TV

 POST HAS NOW BEEN UPDATED TO INCLUDE THREE DIFFERENT OPTIONS ON HOW TO UPDATE KODI ON FIRE TV AND FIRESTICK – MY FAVORITE UPDATE METHOD IS OPTION #1 SINCE YOU DON’T NEED A COMPUTER – CHOOSE YOUR FAVORITE!

Now that you have Kodi installed on your Fire TV or Fire TV Stick, you will need to know how to update Kodi on Fire TV.  This is important so you will be able to update without re-installing everything such as Kodi addons, skins, settings, etc..  There will be numerous updates to Kodi in the future so it is important to learn how to update Kodi on Fire TV.

Updating Kodi on a Fire TV or FireStick is a simple process that will take under five minutes by using one of the tutorials below.

I have provided thee options on how to update Kodi on Fire TV or Fire TV Stick below and you should choose the option which works best for you.  In my opinion, the first option is the easiest and most reliable in the future as it will only take one click to complete.  Also, with this method, we are only relying on one application and that is Downloader, which you can download for free from Amazon App Store.  Downloader is a free application that you can download through the Fire TV app store.  If you have problems finding Downloader when you perform a search, be sure that you are searching under the category of Apps and not TV Shows & Movies.

The video tutorials listed below will provide you with a more detailed outline on the step-by-step instructions. Each of the options listed below will allow you to retain all of your Kodi settings and addons.

Have you supercharged your Fire TV or FireStick yet?  Be sure to get my free bonus videos and guide that have been downloaded over 200,000 times.  Simply fill out the form at the top of this page or use one of the orange buttons on this page to sign up for this free guide.  You will learn how to use the best Kodi addons, build your own home media server, eliminate buffering, and so much more.

IMPORTANT 1 – PLEASE READ!! – IF  YOU ARE UPDATING TO A COMPLETE NEW VERSION SUCH AS GOING FROM 16.1 TO 17.6, THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT ANY UPDATE PROCEDURE WILL WORK SINCE YOU ARE DEALING WITH A NEW MAJOR SOFTWARE VERSION.  WHEN UPDATING TO A NEW VERSION NUMBER SUCH AS GOING FROM 16.1 TO 17.6, I WOULD SUGGEST DOING A CLEAN INSTALL OF KODI.

IMPORTANT 2: BEFORE YOU UPDATE KODI FROM JARVIS TO KRYPTON, MAKE SURE THAT YOU SWITCH YOUR SKIN BACK TO CONFLUENCE, WHICH IS THE DEFAULT KODI SKIN. IF YOU ARE USING A SKIN THAT IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH KODI 17.6 KRYPTON, YOU WILL GET A BLACK SCREEN WHEN YOU LAUNCH KODI AND YOU WILL NEED TO REINSTALL.  TO CHANGE YOUR SKIN GO TO SETTINGS/APPEARANCE/SKIN/CLICK YOUR SKIN NAME AND THEN SWITCH TO CONFLUENCE.  

IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS, SIMPLY UNINSTALL THROUGH FIRE TV SETTINGS / APPLICATIONS / MANAGE APPLICATIONS / KODI AND CLICK UNINSTALL.  AFTER YOU HAVE UNINSTALLED, THEN REINSTALL KODI AND THEN ADDONS.  SEE MY REINSTALL VIDEO BELOW.  

YOU CAN USE MY FREE SUPERCHARGE GUIDE FOR INSTRUCTIONS ON INSTALLING THE BEST ADDONS.  YOU CAN GET GUIDE VIA FORM AT TOP OF PAGE

      If the above steps don’t work, I suggest doing a fresh start by clearing data and reinstall addons or use my Supercharge Guide above to install all of the best addons with a Kodi build.

    I have a couple of builds some of them are on Kodi forks is there a way to update the Kodi fork i have 17.3 , on my main Kodi i have have 17.6

    • Troy January 6, 2018 at 3:37 pm - Reply

      Hello Jose, everything should stay intact within your build since you are updating within the same version of Kodi. Just follow steps above. Obviously your screen will look a bit different since you are using a differing skin with your Kodi build.

        Thank you so much do i have anything to worry about with the forks when things go to Kodi 18

        • Troy January 8, 2018 at 11:03 am - Reply

          Hello Jose, you will simply follow the same instructions above when new updates like 18 come out for Kodi.
