How Do I Jailbreak My Amazon Fire TV Stick And Install Kodi?

It’s gotten much easier to install Kodi to your Firestick and Fire TV without a computer.

Follow our newest guide for 2017:

How to Install Kodi on Firestick and Fire TV in 2 Minutes

The following instructions are an older way of installing Kodi on your Amazon Firestick and your FireTV with the use of a computer. While this method still works for most people, some have issues with their wi-fi network and firewall which are responsible for most of the timeout issues that occur.

For you Amazon Fire TV Stick owners out there, we’ve got great news for you if you want free movies and television, install Kodi on Amazon Fire TV Stick. That little black pack of gum you’ve got plugged into the back of your TV’s HDMI port is one powerful little box. Not only does it support 1080p playback, it also has 6GB of internal hard drive space a dual-core processor and 1 GB of memory! This little device, combined with Amazon Prime, makes a pretty awesome media center and gives you access to over 200,000 television episodes and movies. But this simple trick I’m about to share with you will give you access to millions of tv shows and movies including live television without cable…all for free. Not only that, you don’t need to jailbreak or hack your Amazon Fire TV Stick in order to install Kodi. This easy-to-do secret will have Kodi installed to your Amazon Fire TV Stick in less than 10 minutes.

STEP 1: Download Software—KODI 15 Isengard & adbFIRE

First off, you’re going to need to download KODI (XBMC) and adbFire for either Windows or Mac. Click on the buttons below to download the software you’ll need.

STEP 2: Prepare Your Amazon FireTV Stick For Hacking

Now you’ll need the IP address of your Amazon Fire TV Stick. Make sure your Amazon Fire TV Stick is plugged in to your TV and connected to your wifi network. Navigate to SETTINGS>SYSTEM>ABOUT and hit Select. Now scroll down to NETWORK and write down the IP address (example 196.168.1.73) We’ll use the IP address to connect to the Amazon Fire TV Stick through wifi.

Now hit the back arrow to navigate to the SETTINGS screen then scroll to SYSTEM and then scroll down and select DEVELOPER OPTIONS.

STEP 3: Hack Your Amazon FireTV Stick

Now that we have everything setup and in place, it’s time to connect your Fire TV Stick to your computer. Unzip the adbFire app you downloaded earlier if it’s not already. Then select the adbFire executable file and it should open.

If you’re on a mac, the file you need is adbfm130.dmg

If you’re on a PC, the file you need is adbfm130.exe. When you download this file it is zipped up. You will need to unzip it, if your Downloads folder doesn’t automatically do it.

Install Kodi on Amazon Fire TV Stick

When you run the adbFire software on a Mac, you will need to give it permission to open. To do this, follow the screens below:

1. Mount the .dmg file and open it. You’ll see the adbFire icon in the folder. Drag it into the Applications folder, then open your Applications folder and open adbFire. If your computer won’t open it because it is from an unrecognized developer, hold CONTROL on your keyboard, Right-Click the adbFire icon and select Open.

2. A pop-up window will verify you want to open it, click Open.

For PC users, you should be able to open and install adbFire from the .exe file without any issues.

Here’s the first screen you’ll see when adbFire opens.

adbFire-screen1

 

Now select the button that says NEW and a new pop-up will appear. Enter in the IP address of your Amazon Fire TV Stick that you wrote down earlier, add a description, and make sure the red-arrow items are correct (note: make sure your Amazon Fire TV Stick is still plugged in to your TV and is on…no screensaver!) and select SAVE.

 

adbFire-screen2

adbFire will now be connected your Amazon FireTV Stick once you hit Save. On the home screen of adbFire, you will now see your IP address listed under connected devices. Also notice at the bottom where it says ADB Running. If you ever have issues, click Stop ADB and then Refresh ADB. Next select the button INSTALL APK. Also, in the top left corner of adbFire, under “Current Device” make sure that the new description you just added is selected. In our example, our description was labeled as “Fire TV Kodi”.

adbFire-screen3-firetv-stick

A new window will open, navigate to the Kodi file you downloaded earlier, select it and click YES on the installation prompt screen.

adbFire-screen4-amazon-firetv-stick

adbFire-screen5-amazon-firetv-stick

The progress bar at the bottom of the screen shows Kodi being installed onto your Amazon fire stick. Kodi is a pretty large file, somewhere around 50mb. Depending on your wi-fi connection there are lots of factors that contribute to slow installations. Make sure no one in the house is streaming or downloading anything. Also make sure you don’t have any devices on that cause wi-fi interference, and make sure your Amazon Fire TV Stick is on the home screen, not the screensaver. It can take anywhere from 5-15 minutes to install Kodi. Your progress bar may also loop a couple of times before it installs.

Install Kodi on Amazon Fire TV Stick and when Kodi has finally installed, you’ll see a confirmation of the installation and the word Installed appear. Please note, this can take a few minutes to install depending on your wi-fi connection, as stated above.

How Do I Run Kodi on my Amazon Fire TV Stick Now That It’s Installed?

Now that Kodi is installed, you have to know where to go to launch it. On your Fire Tv Stick, scroll down to the SETTINGS menu, navigate over to the APPLICATIONS option and hit the select button. Once you’ve done that, scroll down and select MANAGE ALL INSTALLED APPLICATIONS. Now scroll down until you find the Kodi application, select it and choose LAUNCH APPLICATION.

At this point if everything was successful, Kodi will launch and you’ll be ready to start installing Add-ons to get the full effect of what great things Kodi has to offer, such as free live television, new release movies, pay per view events and much more.

    This totally worked on my FireStick, does this work on the regular Amazon FireTV as well? How do you download movies to the FireStick TV?

    • admin says:

      Yes this method works similarly on the FireTV. I’ll be posting an article today on how to download media to your FireStick TV’s internal storage. I’ll post a link once it’s been published.

    • SirGuido says:

      Has anyone had an issue following these instructions and triggering eFuse and bricking the Fire TV stick? I just recieved mine today and don’t want to have an expensive paperweight.

      Thanks

  • Gary Papa says:

    I have done this method many many times. With no problems. However I’m trying to load KODI on to a friends fire stick and all of a sudden I cannot get ADB fire to connect to the stick. I have all my steps correct any reason why? Is there something I can do to make it connect? Please help I have no idea why all of a sudden after doing so many time s I just can’t connect anymore. Thanks

    • admin says:

      A couple of things to make sure of.
      1. The ADB software needs to be extracted before you run or it won’t work properly.
      2. Make sure you have the correct IP address and that the Amazon FireTV Stick is on and properly connected.
      In my experience, most people encounter this problem by clicking on the ADB software and running it from the window that opens up. Although it may seem like it’s working, it’s not. You need to first extract the ADb software from it’s package and then run the .exe file. it will connect properly then.

      • Tim says:

        I have a brand new Fire stick that won’t install Kodi… adb connects and goes through the install process…over and over again, but never writes it to the new Fire stick. It worked fine on my other two, so I have to assume that Amazon changed something in the Fire stick???

        • admin says:

          I don’t think Amazon changed anything. I would refresh the wi-fi settings, restart ADB, and reconnect to your Amazon FireTV Stick. I should mention, for some reason, it sometimes takes way longer to install Kodi on a FireTV Stick than other times. I don’t know if it has something to do with the wi-fi connection. My advice would be to do all of those steps, and then let ADB keep running until it says it’s installed. I’ve seen it cycle through the progress bar many times in one install session. Let me know if it works.

          • john says:

            Has gone over at least six times

          • Josh says:

            I’ve sat and let the computer go through cycles of downloading for about an hour now. It just keeps starting over once it finishes installing but it never finishes. Suggestions?

          • Ron says:

            I was having the same problem and then I used a sideloader app from my iphone app store and it installed in less than 5 minutes. The app was $1.99 but well worth it.

          • Amelia says:

            what side load app did you use? having the same problem. it just keeps generating a blue install next to where is says device connected.

          • John says:

            I just DL’d the phone app too and like Ron said, it works like a charm. Took less than a minute!

          • md says:

            ok i downloaded the side loader app but my question is do i have to download kodi to my phone to load it from the side loader app. and if so where would i find kodi to down load through an apple phone?

      • Losky says:

        I am having trouble I put in the IP address and hit save but when I click install APK it tell me no device connected. Should the stick be connected to the TV or the computer to do this? I have tried both ways yet no luck. Please help

        • Eval says:

          Turn off your firewall and antivirus. That should help.

        • Josh says:

          Start over. When you first open up the adbfire download, a window should pop up. It gives you an option of clicking on an adbFire application or selecting a folder labeled “applications.” What you’re gonna want to do is drag the adbFire app onto your desktop. Then click on the app once installed to your desktop. Then proceed with the instructions. This was what worked for my Mac.

      • eric says:

        Are you able to watch all channels once jail broke. Interested in buying one next week.

      • sonja says:

        i am stuck on the 3rd part where to unzip file. I have a laptop and yes my fire stick is connected correctly.
        i have been doing this for 45 minutes and i still cant get the thing to budge ty

    • Thirsty says:

      Hey I’m having this same problem…Did you ever get it to connect

  • Chris says:

    I am having the same problem as John. I had already unzipped adpfire and even tried Amazon FireTV Utility App. The IP address is correct and I tried to refresh it, restart FireTV Stick and PC. I have installed apps before on the FireTV Stick with no problems. Now that I am looking to sideload more apps there is a problem. Any help would be great.

  • mike says:

    similar problem , i turned off firewall on my laptop loaded what i needed and then restarted firewall. before i shut off firewall green line would just continue to loop over and over

  • julie says:

    My computer is saying “device not connected”. I’ve tried both hdmi and usb since the instructions don’t specify. I went into the computer panel and it doesn’t show up under devices on this computer. also u say to be the device is on. how so? there is no light or anything
    please help ! husband is desperate and having withdrawls from his dodger game lol

    • admin says:

      Your Amazon FireTV Stick can only be plugged in to an HDMI on your TV, not your computer. Your FireTV Stick also needs to be connected to the internet and you have to know the IP address. Go through the steps one more time from the beginning. This does work, I’ve done it a million times for other people.

    • Andrew says:

      I had the same problem. The instructions leave out the fact that you leave the HDMI side plugged to your TV, and simply move the USB from the power adapter to the USB port on your computer. This will keep the device with power (keeping it’s IP address) while allowing the data to be transferred (via USB). I hope this helps!

      • marcela says:

        I am on a mac and have gone through all the steps and it says my device is not connected. I have even put in the USB drive into my computer and when I try to open install it, there is nowhere to open it with. Like what folder?

  • Max says:

    Hey,

    I’m on a mac. Downloaded and running the adbFire software fine. Now trying to install Kodi. It states that the device is “connected” and the progress bar seems to get to the finish line, but then restarts. Has this been resolved by anyone?

  • Max says:

    Nevermind – all set! Just took out the FireTV USB and plugged it back in.

    Thanks!

  • Steve says:

    I was having the same looping install problem.. I turned off my firewall like Mike suggested and it was a success!!

  • Ernesto says:

    Im having the same issue don’t know why it keeps restarting i turned my firewall off and still nothing just keeps resetting when the bar fills up

  • corey says:

    I downloaded and tried to install the ADB software and I keep getting a cannot create log file error that I have to click on 100 times. I’m on a mac and not the best with using this thing as I’m used to windows. Am I doing something wrong? it seems like its unzipped.

  • Cal says:

    The program that you install is that android? The windows / apple is just referring to the loader?

  • Jeff says:

    do you bypass the registration or create one to get past the screen after connecting to the network?

  • Da says:

    Hi When you said connect to computer it’s over wifi or direct to your computer via USB, I can not connect via wifi, if that’s what you mean.

    thanks

  • dar says:

    Turning off firewall will let you connect to the amazon fire tv, now the Kodi file will not install, failed that it’s new message I got, any one can upload a good file

  • Kenneth says:

    I’m on a pc and it’s asking what program should I use to open the adb file!?

  • ELJ says:

    I’m running Kodi on my Fire Stick, everything is working fine. But my question is: Is there ANY way to play the Fire Stick on my laptop through my hdmi port? I’ve researched several sites and even called Amazon to see if there’s a way to play it on my laptop and they said it’s not possible (yet). But I know there has to be an app/hack/driver to allow this to happen. Please help. Thanks

    • Dugo says:

      The HDMI on your computer is output not input, would be like trying to play your cable box on your bluray.

    • KevinC says:

      Sounds like you just want to play Kodi content on your laptop? Then forget the Fire Stick for now, simply install Kodi on your laptop!

  • dar says:

    Just working fine, thank you for all info

  • Steve says:

    Do I need Amazon prime to do this ?

    • admin says:

      No, you don’t need Amazon Prime to do this.

      • Larry says:

        Do you NEED to setup an amazon account at all? I will be doing 2 for my friends that do not have an account, is it possible to use firestick without an account?

        • admin says:

          Just use your Amazon account to install Kodi, and then before you give it to them, go to your Settings in the FireTV Stick and click Deregister account. Then they have to use their account when they use their FireTV Stick.

  • francisco says:

    why does my green bar keep refilling ? any help

    • admin says:

      Check your firewall, make sure it’s off. Restart everything and try again. Sometimes it can take a little while and the progress bar will rotate through a few times.

    • Michael says:

      Did turning off your firewall help?

  • mykal says:

    HELP! When I click install APX and them try to install Kodi in get installed failed

    • Jon says:

      I am having a similar issue, but for me the application is grayed out like it is unavailable. Did you solve this?

      • Brian Fig says:

        I’m getting the EXACT same thing. I’ve done EVERYTHING correctly, it’s really not hard. But everything under “apps”, “downloads”, etc is grayed and when I click it, nothing happens.

  • Cheryl says:

    adbFire executable file won’t open

  • sheek says:

    Ok so what add-ons do i have to install go be able to watch live tv, pay per view events and so on

  • Anon says:

    Wouldn’t you need to only use this device thru your computer with a VPN? For the simple fact of the legality and ISPs sending, cease and desist notices and hitting you with fines or even lawsuits?

    • scott says:

      no…there’s nothing illegal about Kodi itself or putting it on your fire stick, much like torrenting…it’s not illegal to download all torrents, all depends on what one chooses to do with it. Kodi is an app just like any other app in the playstore, only it allows for 3rd party addon’s. as far as cease and desist letters from your ISP, that happens in torrenting because when DL’ng a movie/music torrent, your ip is exposed….if the copyright owner of it is monitoring it, they send a notification letter to your ISP who then sends you the notification. ISP’s don’t care what you do as long as youre a paying customer, so they don’t send them on their own if youre not doing anything against them. with this, your ip isn’t exposed like it is in torrenting….so technically, this is a safer bet

    • Shannon says:

      I got a cease and desist letter via email from my ISP. I was told that you need to program these with proxies or a vpn to block you IP address.

  • Marisa says:

    Ok just bought a firestick and every time I go to download the adbfire.exe and run it, it asks me if I want to update to version 1.25. I click “no” and it says my device is not running and is not connected. How do I fix this? Please help thank u.

  • robert says:

    I can not find the exe. file to open

  • eric says:

    Is there a particular fire stick I have to purchase.

    • scott says:

      for windows users who can’t connect try to ping the fire stick….
      >Start
      >search “cmd” without the parenthesis and open it
      >type “ping xxx.xxx.x.xx” e.g: ping 192.168.2.99
      >look for “ping statistics”, if it says Sent = 4, received = 4, then the stick is able to be found

      load adbfire without your fire stick connected by usb. once loaded, go to “setup device” and put in your sticks ip and save it if it’s not already filled in, then click “connect”. give it some time, it’s much like connecting any other device via wifi, can take a bit to connect

    • scott says:

      no….this isn’t a hack that requires certain versions of firmware, any stick will do

      • scott says:

        ….disregard, wrong reply

      • Nette says:

        Okay I was able to ping my firestick using the command prompt and all 4 packages were sent and received but adb is saying device is not connected and when i enter the information thru device set up the info i enter shows under current device but nothing shows under Connected devices

    • scott says:

      no….this isn’t a hack that requires certain versions of firmware, any stick will do

  • Pj says:

    Hi guys, just got a Fire stick, do I have to register the device with a google account? Or can I use it without registering?
    Is there any way to side load Hulu+, NBC Sports extra? HBO? Premierleaguepass apps from New Zealand? In the uk? I have a smart dns! Thx

  • Jason says:

    Last year Amazon had a firmware update that bricked all the hacked fire sticks, is this hack immune to that or are just at the mercy of Amazons next update? Thanks for any replies

    • admin says:

      Technically this is not a hack, this method sideloads Kodi without affecting the Amazon fireTv software. You can update normally, it will not brick your device or affect your Kodi installation.

  • Daniel says:

    Cant create log in file ???

  • Shaun says:

    I’m hoping someone can help me to get SportsDevil on my Amazon Fire TV. I was able to install Kodi and adbFire just fine which was the first time trying this. I just can’t find information on using adbFire and downloading SportsDevil or if there are other files that would be great to add. I used Superreto. Any help would be great since this is the first time i’ve ever did this before.

    Thank you

      I saw that article. If i plan on buying an additional fire stick, will it be possible to install kodi on it?

    • admin says:

      Amazon banned Kodi and XBMC from their own app store. It wasn’t a true version of Kodi anyway as it would not have a File Manager to add the plugins and add-ons needed to stream. This method bypasses the Amazon App Store. There is no way for them to remove it from your device.

  • Noah Aguilar says:

  • Nat says:

    I’m having difficulties connecting my device. It won’t connect even though I have it plugged into the hdmi port. I’ve done all the possible steps above! No luck!

    • admin says:

      The HDMI port has nothing to do with connecting to your device. You need to connect your Amazon fireTV Stick to your internet to obtain an IP Address. Once you have the IP address, you can input that into adbFire to connect your device.

      • Rose says:

        I’ve done that and it says device not connected. So I tried going through the use to the computer and I spent hours trying to get it to connect ro the fire stick. So as long as it’s connected to the Internet my laptop should detect it? Could the problem just be my laptop?

  • Justin says:

    Wow! Just incredible how many stupid people out there who 1) REFUSE to follow the instructions, which – along with some additional aid ALREADY provided in these comments – is MORE than enough perfect advice for any reasonably intelligent human to get this going. Instead so many people just beg to have their hands held. And 2) expect all this EXTRA “above and beyond” help for free!

    I REALLY hope you guys that are begging for this extra help are each donating at LEAST a months worth of cable bills savings (ie a MINIMUM of $50) here.
    The writer is clearly taking an incredible amount of time to REPEATEDLY answer your same questions over and over again because you don’t want to read. I’d bet if you send him an email showing your $50 donation he’d be happy to help you even more. Everything can’t be “take take take,” and “me me mine mine free free.” Show some gratitude please.

    • admin says:

      Go to your Kodi home screen, then go to Videos>Add-Ons>Icefilms Once you’re inside Icefilms you can search or browse for movies and tv shows

  • Kathryn says:

    Okay, I have followed all the direction read over all the comments and I donated what I could and I am still having trouble. When I pull up the adbFire file at the bottom it says ADB not running, how do I get it to run? If I try to install kodi the way it is, it says “install failed”. Thanks for taking the time to do all of this hard work. I’m using a pc.

    • Kathryn says:

      Still can not get the ADB to run an I have clicked the ADB server start button. Please help?

      Try another pc or laptop had the same problem once I tried it wd another laptop it worked just fine

  • John says:

    are you supposed to unzip kodi file? I did but after I pressed install adk, the window came up, went to the kodi file but it wouldn’t let me insert it?

  • jay says:

    I’ve read all the comments and can’t find a answer to my issue. i connect my fire stick to the wifi and when i open adbfire on my macbook and i can’t get it to connect after i enter the correct ip address… can anybody help me out ??

  • ashley says:

    so i followed all the direction for the mac, but when i go to install APK, i see my kobe app, but its greyed out. How do i get it to ungrey while in applications? i even moved to file to my desktop

    • dav says:

      having the same problem

    • Jessica says:

      I had the same problem on my mac. I downloaded and deleted kodi several times before realizing I needed to use the kodi that was for android. Once I downloaded the android kodi on my mac it worked perfectly!

  • Derek says:

    i am at the part where i click install apk, when i click it it says device not connected. what do i do?

  • Rob says:

    I am feeling very stupid.
    when i click the link to download the ADB Fire for Windows a separate window opens and i receive the error ‘File not found’. I was able to download the Kodi Helix file with no issues but the Windows file does not appear to be where it should.

    • admin says:

      Our dropbox account containing our adbFire downloads was terminated for excessive traffic. The links in the article were replaced to new sources. Our tests show that it is working, however if anyone has issues please let us know in the comments below and we work on an alternative.

  • Tom says:

    So if I buy the stick and hack it I will have access to all the tv shows and movies? Or do I need to also have Amazon prime?

    • admin says:

      No you don’t need an Amazon Prime account. However, this does not give you free movies and tv from Amazon. This installs 3rd party software that connects to media servers over the internet. This does not hack Amazon’s media.

      • Tom says:

        Thanks! actually I decided to go with the fire TV instead. I read your other article. Once I install kodi and Xbmc on it I should be able to download add ons for free movies and shows and music, correct? Without Amazon prime? My second question is, once incompletely hack the fire TV box in my house and download the add ons, can I then take the fire TV box to any house and plug and play?

        Thanks for your response

  • This says:

    Tried the adbFire download, it’s not working.

  • Kenny says:

    The link for AdFibre for Windows isn’t working can somebody see if they can fix the link or make another one please? Thank you!

  • Belinda says:

    The kodi install has been looping for nearly 2 hours. I am running Windows 8 on my desktop. I added Kodi to the list of Allowed Apps with only Private checked. I did not restart the install process after doing this. Is this all I need to do regarding the firewall? Do I need to restart the install? Thanks for any help. This site has been the most useful so far.

    • admin says:

      2 hours is way too long. I would start over. Make sure you’re not streaming anything on any other device in the house while you’re installing the Kodi APK.

      • Belinda says:

        Thank you, I think it may have been related to the firewall. I had allowed the Kodi app but turning off the Norton firewall may have helped. I do think you need to wait a while for the Kodi app to show up, though. As someone previously posted, it was like the app just appeared, when I thought I was still having trouble.

  • Me Again! says:

    Right….. Have installed Kodi and connected to the stick without a problem. However, when I launch Kodi from the stick I get a blue circle background and there are no categories listed and nothing that I can watch.

    Can’t anybody assist please?

    P.S the guide above is very helpful, thank you for explaining it to technophobes like me!

  • Ferris says:

    If a friend gives me his fire stick to download Kodi on will it work at his house when I give it back since I used my IP address?

    • admin says:

      Yes it will work anywhere, as long as you have an internet connection. The initial IP address is only used by adbFire to connect to your FireTV Stick to install Kodi. After that you’re all good. You can use it everywhere. Cheers!

    I am having trouble done it a couple of ways and still nothing. Can you help me?

  • Eli says:

    Hi so i am having the same problem where the kodi install keeps cycling through and never succeeding. I have read through everything on this page and made sure i am doing everything correctly but it still wont load. ive tried like 20 times now. Ive restarted, taken off firewall, connected via usb, everything. And it still wont work. Any advice? Thanks! I really appreciate it and plan on making a nice donation.

  • Jon says:

    Hey there.
    I was able to download and set up, per the directions, the ADBFire. Now the issue I am having is that when I go to select Kodi, (on the install APK button) it is grayed out in my applications folder and I am unable to proceed. I saw someone else had the same issue, but there was no response. I am using a Mac OSX if that is any help. Thanks in advance for the help and directions.

    • Jon says:

      Never mind. Found out I downloaded the OSX form and not the android form for Fire Stick.

  • nigel says:

    hi everyone download kodi on my fire stick with no problem,but when I launched it tv addons was installed but when I tried to open navi x or phoinex they wont open,i gave the stick to a mate of mine,he tried it at his house and it worked with no problem where am I going wrong

    • admin says:

      It may be your ISP provider blocking this incoming connections, or possibly your router.

      • nigel says:

        thanks admin I have 2 android boxes connected with no problems wot can I do to stop the blocking or the router thanks

  • Justin says:

    I am unable to connect to my fire stick with ADBfire. I tried pinging it via CMD prompt and nothing. I have a FireTV as well, and I can connect to it with no problem. Any ideas of what’s going on? I have sideloaded about 6 or 7 sticks with Kodi and never had this issue.

    • admin says:

      A couple things to try. First restart everything including your computer and router. If that doesn’t work, try using a different “Description #” when you Setup Device.

      • Justin says:

        Thanks…it finally connected on its own. Next time I’m just going to set up 10 sticks so I don’t have to deal with this crap on a case by case basis. LOL

  • Dav says:

    trying to download kodi from link but no go.

    The requested URL /releases/android/arm/kodi-14.1-Helix-armeabi-v7a.apk was not found on this server.

  • Andrew says:

    While this is a good step by step guide issues with ADB Fire makes it often a hit or miss affair. I found it much easier to download the KODI Android App to my mobile then download the Fire Installer app to my phone and use that to ransfer the KODI APP to my Fire TV . This worked first time and I repeated it about four times and it worked each and every time not problem . Much easier and in fact just a s quick . Once installed on the Fire TV you can even uninstall the KODI App on your phone if you do not want to use it.

  • zak says:

    Hi I have just bought brand new amazon fire stick. I tried to connect it to the tv and wifi. after setup the wifi on very next step it says login or register with the account. how do I avoid this stage?

    • admin says:

      You can’t avoid that part. You need to register with Amazon. It’s ok, it doesn’t effect your Kodi installation.

    Hi

    I downloaded and unzipped adbFire

    I ran adbFire, set up device, entered and saved the IP address

    Go to install APK, and navigate to my Kobi file

    However, clicking on Kobi icon just opens up the file and shows the files within it. It does not show any APK file so will not let me go any further.
    I have unzipped the file and tried again, with the same results

    Can anyone offer any advice?

  • Jesse says:

    I’ve installed Kodi on my mac and on my fire stick using my mac, but i tried to launch the app on my fire stick and it says “This kodi package is not compatible with your device (arm vs. x86). Please check the kodi android wiki for more information.” i thought i downloaded the correct one, but maybe not? could someone list the exact person and stuff i need to download… and I’m not the most tech savvy, so please explain as if you were speaking to a 5 year old or 80 year old. lol thanks!

    I am having a problem getting the audio to play out from Kodi with my Amazon Fire TV. Everything works fine with the regular amazon apps. I have been up and down on Kodi’s settings and cant get anything to work. The volume DB is at 0, the audio output is saying its getting the volume from ‘android’ i’m sure my problem is there and i need to change it to my tv speakers, but its greyed out. I even went an bought an optical cable to try and resolve it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated since i am all out of ideas.

        The Kodi APK is a large file, so depending on your wi-Fi upload speed it can take awhile to install Kodi. Your bar will keep refilling until it installs.

        H I so I just got the Amazon Firestick for my tv and it loads and everything is fine with it, but when i am going to select a movie and it gives me a million different options on which one to choose and i have tested mostly all of the options the resolution is terrible. Is there anyway to fix this problem because when i click HD for a movie i would very much so like to have a movie that is HD. When i click the movie it looks and sounds like it was recorded inside of a movie theater on a persons cellphone. Is there any possible way to just have HD and nothing else..

        • admin says:

          Hi, unfortunately that’s the price we pay for watching free movies. Sometimes we have to weed through a lot of bad copies. IceFilms has true HD movies and so does Exodus. There are probably more Add-ons that do a better a job with HD, but I’m not aware first hand.

  • jonathan says:

    Im the same issue as Richard ^^…. “Can’t create log file” any further guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    I have a older laptop that doesnt have a HDMI outlet only VGA and USB can i use a converter to Install the software onto the firestick or does the computer have to be directly connected to the firestick ?

    • admin says:

      No, your FireTV Stick doesn’t physically connect to your computer. You connect via the IP address with adbFire software. You won’t have any problems.

      • nette says:

        Thank you i read that in another persons reply lol … Now that i have downloaded adb and the kodi from the link provided when i enter the IP address in the designated field and press save adb doesnt detect the firestick just says in the corner ADB running any advice ?

          – And also the IP address doesnt show up under connected devices

          • admin says:

            On the home screen of adbFire, in the top left corner, look where it says “Current Device” under that is a drop down menu. Make sure the description name of the one you added is shown there. Select it, and then click the “Connect” button. Hopefully that helps.

  • James says:

    I had no idea what I was doing since I was trying this device for the first time. These instructions work perfectly! If you run into any issues, simply scroll through the comments section for troubleshooting advice. Good Luck! Thanks!

  • Philip says:

    I am following every step correct, and it keeps saying “can’t creat logfile”. Can you please let me know what I’m doing wrong? Thanks!

    • admin says:

      Yes, this will fix the “can’t create log file”. When you open the adbFire .dmg file, make sure to drag the adbFire icon into the Applications shortcut folder that is right next to it. Once adbFire has copied over to your Applications folder, open the Applications folder and open adbFire from there.

Well I was shocked to see the kodi app in recents right where I wanted it! I click it and it goes to ikono tv!!!LOL So the adbfire must of reversed my request for the sacrificial app maybe? I’m not sure wth to do now.I asked adb to remove llama and the ikono app and tried again with the same end result. Any ideas?

    How to sideload Kodi and other apps on the Fire TV Stick (or Fire TV)
    You won’t be able to install the Google Play Store or other apps that rely on the Google Services Framework unless you root your device, and even then there’s no guarantee everything will work perfectly.
    Loading Kodi.
    1. Navigate to the Settings screen.
    2. Scroll over to the System option and then scroll down until you see “Developer Options” and hit the select button.
    3. Now flip the toggles to turn on ADB debugging and Apps from Unkown Sources.
    4. Hit the back arrow on your remote to return to the System settings.
    5. Scroll up until you find “About,” hit select, and then scroll down to “Network” and make note of the IP address. You cannot connect a Fire TV Stick to a PC with a USB cable(PC won’t see stick), so have to connect over WiFi, and that’s where that IP address is needed.
    Note: can follow the steps discussed above to connect to computer or set up Fire stick on TV and install one of the included apps in Firestick that is a file manager. Once a file manager is installed then download from google play store the app “Apps2Fire “ onto your phone ,insert the IP address you noted for the stick ,then download onto phone the kodi app and whatever repositories or programs you are interested in . Then upload same to the firestick through the Apps2Fire . Navigate to SD card(that’s what the internal memory on firestick is called) to downloads to ensure they are there and start install of Kodi (>settings>applications>Manage All Installed Applications>Scroll down until you find the app you want to launch. Select it, and choose the option for “Launch application. Once that’s done you will have to navigate to Kodi and set it up within by installing your repositories and programs from the zip files etc. Kodi forum has guides on how to these installs. The above method worked for me as the Apps2Fire worked on my phone (it may not work for all ). I spend a lot of time using methods above to try to add Kodi to stick via windows computer and found it frustrating and it worked only once (otherwise the computer registered no connection to stick so couldn’t add Kodi program). Also TVMC(advantage of preloaded programs) did not install correctly on Firestick so had to use Kodi.

I have turned on the both of the developer options on my fire stick and correctly copied my IP Address. I have Ikono TV installed. Now this is where I run into my issue. I correctly installed adbFire 1.30 both on my Windows and Mac laptops. After inputing the Description and IP Address for the device I click Save and I can never get the IP Address to show up in the Connected devices window. Same thing on both laptops. I have tried stopping add and refreshing it, disconnecting and reconnecting but still no luck. I have even tried updating the adbFire software to 2.01 and retried everything on both systems only to have the same result. I have tried it with both the firewall on and off on both systems as well.

    I am on a Mac, latest software version (El Capitan) and cannot get adb to open. It says it’s due to my operating system. Suggestions?

  • Cedric Jiles says:

    I’m not able to download Kodi because my Mac is saying There is no application set to open the document “kodi-15.1-Isengard-armeabi-v7a-2.apk”. What application do I need to open it?

  • Michael says:

    I’ve followed the directions, the only thing is that it’s still telling me that my fire stick is offline. How do I change or correct that to have my device read online, it’s plug up into the tv and everything, is working besides reading offline when installing the apk.

    I want to upgrade to Kodi 16 and I downloaded the APK from the Kodi website, but for some reason adbfire keeps saying install failed. I’m not sure if the APK I have is the right one. Can you provide me with the correct one or let me know where I can retrieve it or let me know what I need to do different. Thanks

    • Julie Fiedler says:

      Do I have to uninstall the older version first? I really don’t want to have to do that, cause I will lose everything saved.

  • Michelle says:

    Hi I’ve had my friend put kodi on my stick and on the tv screen it’s not connected plus the remote wont pair with the stick can anyone help me please thanks

  • Mitch says:

    Once stick is set up the way I want it with Kodi, super ropo,and other addons can it be saved in my computer in case something happens so it can be restored/ reloaded? thanks

  • Chris says:

    I’m having trouble getting the ip address to appear in the connected devices box i’ve followed all the steps and up till this point it was working now nothing

  • Tony says:

    Can anyone help? I am stuck. I have installed the adbFire from the .exe file and entered all required information into the “Firetv and kodi companion” and clicked save. However I cannot get ADB to run, I have tried connect and reloaded and restarted many times but no luck. All appears correct with my NetGear router and the WiFi signal is very strong – any suggestions on what to do now??

    Ok, so I got it to install and everything, but when I go to try and access anything I get errors, check the logs. Where are the logs located at? I tried to load Dragon Stream and Ice(program) but they error out or say that I cannot access the webstream? Or with the Ice program it says or doesnt say anything once I click on new releases for movies, it just makes a clicking sound.. Thanks in advance

    • admin says:

      That’s normal messaging for links that are broken. There are usually tons of links available for a stream. VODLOCKER is usually a reliable source. IceFilms seems to not be working lately. They may be having server issues.

  • Chris says:

    Ok, I have both Kodi and adbfire installed, adbfire says it’s connected to my fire stick. When I click install APK it takes me to the select app to install window, I have located the Kodi file but I cannot click on it and make it download to fire stick whatsoever. It simply opens and allows me to look at all folders and files within the Kodi app.
