How To Install Kodi 17.3 Krypton on the New Updated Fire TV Stick

How To Install Kodi 17.3 Krypton on the New Updated Fire TV Stick
A video tutorial is at the bottom of the step by step instructions for a visual walk through if needed.
 
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.

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.

    Super easy! I had it installed and ready to play a movie in less than 15 mins! Thanks so much!

    The only thing is that it doesn’t show up on my main homepage. Does anyone have a solution?

    Thanks!

    I followed your every step, but when I get to “open from zip files” the icon is red and when I click on it I don’t get the choices you get on the video. What am I doing wrong!?

    I guess I’m a complete idiot. How am I supposed to “type” a website on the download app when there is no keyboard or text to type remote option with on my TV, does everyone have a wireless keyboard or something? I’m totally lost. You can’t possibly have the firestick plugged into your computer as it is HDMI… wth

      Unless I misunderstand your question, what you need to do is this: When your cursor is on the line underneath “Enter the URL that you want to download” (see step 13 above), click the select button on your remote (it’s the middle or inside circle on the remote). This SHOULD bring up an onscreen keyboard. You can then just move the cursor around and type what is needed (http:// kodi.tv/download).

      This is how you’ll type many things on the firestick. Think of it like text messaging on a phone. You’ll bring up the onscreen keyboard when you click on the empty text line.

      Hope that helps.

    When you say an Amazon account but then “a free trial is available,” do you mean you need to have a Prime account to download the downloader?? I don’t have a Prime account anymore but just looking for something reasonably priced to play Kodi Krypton on my smaller TV (I got a smartTV recently, and the old box I used to play Kodi cannot support Krypton, so I have a dormant TV–sacrilege! LOL)

      Firestick needs to be updated, then do a factory reset, then you’ll be able to download kodi all over again. I’ve been running into those issues with the first generation firesticks

    Hi, I recently bought a new (refurbished) firestick from Amazon, I have tried many different methods to try and get Kodi to run on it. !6.0 Jarvis downloaded, installed and appeared to run until switched off, then I could only find it in the downloads folder. What usually seems to happen is I get to the stage where it say’s ‘Running Kodi for the first time’ Then instead of opening up it goes back to the previous ‘do you want to install screen’
    Following your method for Kodi 17.3, I get to the same point, ‘Preparing to run for the first time…please wait. then it returns to the download screen! I have attempted fresh install about 5 times and via ES and downloaded and the kodi site.
    Can you help?

    Hi..your instructions were great and I downloaded Kodi. When I tried to download and install Exodus, I got the message there was a connectivity problem. I added it, but no zip file of course. I just got the Fire stick, could Exodus be blocked? I tried it 2x and know I had the right URL Thanks

    I did all the steps but when I click on Kodi I get a message saying “Your library is currently empty. In order to populate it with your personal media, enter “Files” section, add a media source and configure it. After the source has been added and indexed you will be able to browse your library.
    Do I need to do some other steps to be able to watch movies?
