How To Install Kodi 17.6 Krypton on the New Updated Fire TV Stick Nove
Installing the new Kodi 17.6 to a Fire TV Stick is not difficult and does not require a computer or any other device.
 
A computer can be used if the main install method does not work for your Fire TV version such as the new Fire TV 4K.
 
The first method does not require a computer only 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.
 
The second method uses an App called File Commander which allows a computer to copy files to a Fire TV.
 
How to use both methods are shown below along with the steps and screenshots. A video is also below each method for a visual walk through 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, along with an easy to use Fire TV Stick app.

    I’ve tried doing this on my fire stick, obviously I’ve had to make an amazon account but not put my bank details in.. when I get to the Downloader part it’s refusing the downloads due to no billing details, can anyone recommend another way or suggest what I do as I’ve completely lost my Kodi as it got wiped after a upgrade

      Same here – as others have mentioned, you can install the Kodi .apk file from ES File Explorer.

      So – I downloaded the ARMv7 .apk file onto a Windows PC, uploaded to a location that the Firestick could access (WD My Cloud) and installed it from there via ES File Explorer.

    Attempting to install kodi on the new firetv 4k. After the file downloads I don’t get the screen at Step 24. I get a dialogue box with “Install” “Delete” “Done”. When I click on “install” I get the error “No App to Handle this file”

      I received the same error, but was able to get around this by installing the downloaded apk through es explorer.

        ES File Explorer works to load any Kodi. This work around might be the new norm. Thanks oconnk.

          Use the Downloader App to Download Kodi, and Use ES File Explore to Install it.

    Trying to use this on the new fire tv. It keeps telling me that there is no app to perform this action. This is when i click install after the apk file is downloaded.

    I type in kodi.tv/download on step 18, and the little thing goes around
    and around, will not stop. And step 19 does not happen, it still goes
    around, So i still can not load Kodi, I have uninstall Koki, and now I can not get
    it back on, is the Downloader not working?
    I have my Amazon address password in the stick.

    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.

      It is free but you have to have an amazon account. Create one, it is free
