How To Install Kodi 17.6 Krypton on the New Fire TV Stick 2018 Updated
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.
 
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.
 
This is the most popular method and the most widely used.
 
There have been a few updates that have stopped some previous methods from working with the Downloader App method working very well.
 
The second method uses an App called File Commander which allows a computer to copy files to a Fire TV.
 
Installing with a computer is not usually used since the first method works very well.
 
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 have 4 firetv’s and installed kodi on all of them . Kodi does not show up as an app ANYWHERE on ANY of them. I have to go in to settings>manage applications>Kodi>Launch every time to launch Kodi. I have long pressed home and went to apps, I have went to the end of my apps and “showed all”. It is not showing up. Anyone have this issue?

      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.

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

    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.

        My guess would be your wifi connection has dropped out. reconnect and retry. Also could be that your ISP has soft blockers to protect you from the evils of streaming free content( sky, virgin bt sometimes do this). whilst installed without permission they are voluntary and can be removed by logging in and removing/ adjusting parental controls and security settings. also try clearing the cache in addon tools section as they can store info that says no streams when it had no connection. Hope this helps

      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.

    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 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?

    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?
