How to Use a Kodi Build on Firestick/Android (All Questions Answered)

How To Use A Kodi Build

This tutorial will teach you How to Use a Kodi Build on Firestick, Fire TV, and any Android device.

Many cord-cutters are installing Kodi builds to cut down on the tedious task of installing each add-on individually.

You can think of a Kodi build as a bundle of the best Kodi addons, repositories, and a customized skin that you can install with one click.

One of the biggest issues with using builds is that most of them are resource-intensive, which means that they don’t work well on stock Android TV boxes.

If you are going to run a Kodi build that required extra horsepower, I strongly suggest using recent versions of the Amazon Firestick or Fire TV.

The Amazon Firestick is the most popular device on the market today due to its low price point and jailbreaking abilities.
