Next a App called ES File Explore needs to be installed to the Fire TV Stick.
 
This can be done in two ways. Log into your Amazon account from a computer and activate it to your Fire TV stick, or use the search option within the Fire Stick and install it.
 
Installing from within the Fire Stick is easiest for me those are the steps shown here. An Amazon account needs to be linked with it to download Es File Explore.
 
Go to the Search Icon at the top left and type in ES File Explore highlight it and click on it.

Es File Explorer will come up click it.

Installing Kodi to the new updated Fire TV Stick is easy enough. The only real problem I ran into was the Kodi file did not download when clicked and had to use the Open In Browser method.
 
Add-ons can be installed individually or there is Builds that come with all the best plugins that install everything.

      I get the same message but that doesn’t stop Kodi from working. That’s all it is…a message

    I seem to have a newer version (purchased Dec 2016) and although I have made it through the fusion add on, I do not have an “install from zip” option in my menu. So I am now stuck. Is there a “newer ” how to video that addresses the latest version?

    If you are using the original fire TV stick and you want to install Cody where are the instructions for that install? Also, can you initiate the install on and iOS device or does it have to be on a Mac or Windows device?

    Worked perfectly! I did have to open in browser as the instructions warned I might have to do. But it worked! Thank you for the easy, step by step instructions. Now I just need to figure out how to get the add ons I want and need!
