How To Install Kodi 17.3 Krypton on the New Updated Fire TV Stick
Amazon released an update to the Fire TV Stick that has stopped many previous Kodi install methods from working.
 
But not to worry as Kodi can still be installed after the update.
 
There is a new method using a free App called Downloader that makes it very simple to install Kodi to the Fire Stick without using a computer.
 
An Amazon account is needed to get the Downloader App. A free trial account can be used if needed.
 
Using a good VPN with Kodi is always suggested for privacy and security. If you need a good low cost VPN to use with Kodi Try IPVanish it has multiple high speed servers with no throttling or logs.

    Downloader just hangs on “Connecting…”

    What can I do? Using the browser will take me to the kodi download page but then will not allow me to select to download the 32 bit… even after enabling JavaScript and reloading the page. This is getting very frustrating :/
