Today I am going to show you how you can hack the Amazon Fire Stick to install KODI and allow you to watch all your favorite TV shows and Movies for FREE!
WHY HACK THE FIRE STICK?
I haven’t had cable service for years now and I have been able to accomplish this with online streaming services like Netflix and Hulu. However, there is another option to allow you to watch TV shows, Movies, and Live TV without having to pay any subscription fees.
The answer is KODI!
KODI is a free software that can be installed on many different devices like computers, mobile phones, and even the Amazon Fire Stick.
I prefer using the Fire Stick because it is very portable and includes a remote control. The portability has been awesome because I have been traveling quite a bit and am able to use the Fire Stick basically anywhere that I stay.
HOW TO INSTALL KODI
The first thing you will need is to plug in the Fire Stick to your TV and log into your Amazon account.
Choose APPLICATIONS and turn off “Collect App Usage Data”
Then choose SYSTEMS and turn ON “ADB debugging” as well as “Apps from Unknown Sources”
Select CATEGORIES then PRODUCTIVITY
Find, download, install, and open “ES File Explorer”
Once inside ES File Explorer:
Choose FAVORITES and select ADD
Enter http://kodi.tv then enter a nickname
Selecting your nickname will open up the KODI website
On the KODI website:
Select DOWNLOADS then choose the “ARM” option under Android
If your download does not start, watch the video for a work around.
Complete the KODI install on your Fire Stick
After launching KODI:
Go to SYSTEMS then FILE MANAGER
Choose “Add Source” and enter in http://fusion.tvaddons.ag
You can now enter a name for the source.
Next select SYSTEMS then SETTINGS from the homepage
Under SETTINGS, choose ADD-ONS and select INSTALL FROM ZIP
Choose FUSION, START HERE, and install HUB WIZARD
Go back to the Home screen and select PROGRAMS
Under PROGRAMS, select PROGRAM ADD-ONS, and install the CONFIG WIZARD
Choose the ANDROID version of the Config Wizard
You can now run the customized KODI installation!
Having KODI installed on your Amazon Fire Stick opens a whole new world of free content. Like I mentioned, you can watch practically any TV Show, Movie, or even Live TV.
Just keep in mind that everything I showed you in this video is possible with free software. The odds are that these developers are not getting paid to bring you this software.
With that understanding, KODI is not perfect and sometimes the video links do not work 100% of the time. Just be understanding and patience because it does still provide a great user experience.
So that’s how you hack the fire stick with KODI!
Overall this is a pretty simple install and will give you hours of entertainment. If you do not currently have a Fire Stick, you can purchase it on Amazon.
