How To Install Kodi 17.4 Krypton on the New Updated Fire TV Stick
Installing the new Kodi 17.4 to a Fire TV Stick is not difficult and does not require a computer or any other device.
 
It does require an Amazon account to get a free App called Downloader. A free trial account can be used if needed.
 
The Downloader App is used to go to the Kodi Download page and get the necessary install file.
 
There have been a few updates that have stopped some previous methods from working with the Downloader App method still working and the most widely used.
 
Below is step by step how to install Kodi 17.4 to a Fire Stick along with screenshots.
 
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, along with an easy to use Fire TV Stick app.

    while trying to download the downloader app. at step 10 I get a prompt of purchase problem, need to enter mailing address and info, I thought this was free?? what am I doing wrong. it won’t let me download the app.

      You are “purchasing” it at a price of FREE. Doesn’t mean you’re paying money.

      Reply
    2. Amazon is free

      You arent signed up for amazon. You are required to register an account. The purchase price is free. If you dont have an amazon account you will have to make one, which requires registering your address before you can “purchase” the free download.

    Downloader is not connecting to Kodi website with Fire Tv. Have tried multiple resets and still not connecting. I was able to connect our living room fire tv last night and everything installed great. Not today on our other fire tv. We have two. Someone have any ideas? Is amazon blocking this?

    I have installed and uninstalled everything because I keep getting the message “cannot connect to network” or something similar and I check to make sure I have the URL’s correct. I do and then nothing, I can’t run the zip file. It’s somewhat disheartening to say the least. Any ideas. I’m about to give up and smash this thing into pieces.

      You have to load Kodi with content, it comes empty. There’s a learning curve. Ask any question on a google search, and you’ll find all kinds of help. Start with “getting Kodi set up for the first time” There are super generous & knowledgeable people out there who take the time and effort to post easy to understand help.

    Having trouble with my fireTV Stick with Alexa Voice. I’v tried loading kodi 17.4 but I get a black screen after pressing OPEN after INSTALL. I’ve even Installed previous version 16.1 and Kodi loads and opens OK but when I try to add ADDONS I get server errors. I have no problem with Kodi working on all my other devices except the fireTV Stick with Alexa Voice. Can some one please help. Spent way to many hours on this and I’m starting to give up.

    great build, but the last one doesn’t seem to be able to play some of the live videos. I can’t get FX or FOX(USA) or Disney to load. Any other ways to get Fox(USA) that you know of. I’m trying to watch NFL football and most of the games are on CBS and FOX

    Downloaded 17.4…runs but movies buffer out and audio is often out of sync. I have 22 meg down on wifi to my Firestick which is about two years old. I cleared cache constantly not really much help. Are the streaming sites that bad now or is it the download 17.4 bugs. I ahve been working on it for a week. Seems like the first version I had was much better.

    I have installed Kodi to my firestick and it appears to work but when I have added the addons and then go to install from zip files that is when I have trouble… It shows the names of the addons that I have attempted to install but when I click on them there is nothing there? I get an error message something like a network connection problem??? Any suggestions what I may be doing wrong?

      Go into apps on firestick & launch/open it & it should then be under recent, or go yo setting & apps then manage apps & go down to kodi & launch from there, & its should show in recent. If not go to apps scroll to the right to show all & all the apps will show up then find kodi & click the option button & click option to show first in apps… Hopefully that helps u

    Thanks for the info about holding down home button for 10 seconds to get apps to show. I couldn’t get the Kodi link to show up on home page, but that got done after I clicked on Kodi. I was almost ready to try loading Kodi the old way,since downloaded wouldn’t put the link on the home page for me.

    Thanks again

    I bought a brand new firestick with Alexa voice. I went step by step to install the Downloader & KODI , at the end a box cam up stating that I did not have internet connection… I checked and I did.
    I have the two icons in the app section for downloader and KODI.
    I then tried to add on Exodes, Fusion and was not able to… so then I went to add on Ares Wizard.. It showed was downloading but then never exported the info.
    I do not know what to do next. Anyway of checking to see if the KODI is (or has been ) Completed on the stick? I read that you should not uninstall KODI, It that true? Am I able to uninstall everything and start over?

    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

    Reply
    1. Jason

      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?

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.
