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.

What is a Build?
A Build is a pre-setup Kodi install that comes with all the best Add-ons and artwork.
 
Anyone can create a Build by backing up a Kodi setup and sharing it with other users.
 
While Builds are nice they do come with more code and artwork that can slow down an install on a Fire Stick.
 
Most will only need a few good Addons. If a Build is used be sure it is made specifically for the Fire TV Stick.
 
Should You Install a Build or Individual Addons?
While Builds are nice since they come setup with all the latest Addons often it is best to have 3-5 of the top Kodi Addons installed.
 
Builds always come with more code and artwork which can slow things down.
 
Installing a few good working Addons is all that is really needed and makes for a faster performance.
 
With that said many there are many good Builds that work well such as No Limits Magic Build or Fire TV Guru Build.
 
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?
