How To Install Kodi 18 Leia on the New Updated Fire TV Stick
Installing Kodi 18 Leia 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.
How To Install Kodi 18 Leia on the Fire TV Stick
A free Amazon 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.

Anyone can create a Build by backing up a Kodi setup and sharing it with other users.

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 simply have 3-5 of the top Kodi Addons installed.

    Thank you for an incredible step-by-step process that was easy to follow and worked!!

  2. Carl


  3. Bill

    Freezes at step 23. Says”Dowload started” but nothing happens.
    Any suggestions?

  4. Alan Haigh

    followed the non PC version to the letter and it worked perfectly, cannot understand why so many cannot get past certain points. Excellent tutorial.

  5. Rose

    After step 22 I keep getting this error message:

    An unknown error has occurred. Check your URL and connection. I am connected to the internet.

    I am using the new Fire tv 4k

  6. Eddie McDaniel

    I have done everything like I was supposed to, but I try to watch something and it says no streaming. Any ideas? Amazon Fire stick.

  7. Vicky

    I keep getting parse error when trying to download, what is this and how do I get past this so the download will finish.

  8. Jamea Allri

    I can’t access the download app on my fire stick so it’s pointless

    1. Seamus McCrab

      I found the Downloader app under Utilities in the app section. Everything worked from there. I have no search function on the home screen.

  9. Scott Rippy

    If you get a low storage message do a system restore make sure you don’t have photos or anything else you want to keep. System restore will wipe it clean you will have to reinstall Kodi but it will free up a lot of space.

  10. Louie

    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?

  11. fred

    all of a sudden i started to get a message popping up low on storage remove apps or manage installed apps i tried both and still got the messages and now my menu won,t come up it just goes back to the kodi app how can i fix this

  12. beth

    i’m an amazon customer should i create a new account to download Kodi or is it “safe” to use the existing one?

  13. Linnea

    Sounds like all of you haven’t registered or gotten on wifi yet….

  14. Ashleigh Derbyshire

    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

  15. Deeann Gibbs

    Step 21: link broken
    Brand New HD firestick- we are trying to jail break it like our other firestick-, but when I reach step 21 nothing happens when I press the Android avatar. Any suggestions?

    1. Helper

      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.

  16. Kevin

    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”

    1. oconnk

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

      1. CHARLES

        Just got my new firestick and Can’t seem to get past step 21 the Android . I presd it but I dpn’t get the screen to make ybe nect dtep. Can ypu help?

      1. Honphinor

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

        1. Rick

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

  17. Aj

    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.

  18. Charles Hicks

    I type in 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.

  19. herb urlahs

    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.

    1. Juni Perez

      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.

    3. Josh

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

  20. Pam

    I can’t get past Step 23. It has the “download started” page, and says “downloading Kodi” but no pop-up window indicating progress. How long does it take? Many thanks!

  21. Caz

    I cannot get the Kodi app to appear on the main screen, or in the apps list, I have opened it by going thru the settings tab five times. Any suggestions?

      1. Louie

        Search does not find it either….I have the same issue on 4 different Firetv’s

  22. Heather

    Whenever I go into the Kodi app the screen will go black n come back n just keeps doing that. What do I do

    1. Sam Smith

      I have installed Kodi three times on my fire stick this morning screen comes up black each time will not load

    2. Stephanie

      loaded Kodi v17.6 on new fire stick but upon loading Kodi constantly flickers to a black screen; I have VPNVanish installed, cleared cache and turned hardware accelerator option to “off” position. Nothing worked.

  23. Joe fischerjoe

    Mine comes up and says amazon 1-click settings for correct billing can’t figure out what to do next , please help

  24. Lehla

    Everytime I try to run the update my system comes back with X App not installed

    has anyone had this happen to them as well? what am i doing wrong

    1. grouts

      I had this when I was downloading the 64 bit version.. the 32bit as mentioned in this tutorial installed fine for me

  25. Keith

    Why do I get a message “no stream available ” when I try to play some movies?

      1. oscar

        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

  26. Ellen

    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?

  27. Andy

    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.

  28. DH

    I’ve added Kodi and the icon is on the home screen , but how do I get movies to play?

    1. court

      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.

  29. John

    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.

  30. John

    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

  31. Rachael

    After Download whenever I run any movie it will take long time to first load which is very annying

  32. Mike

    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.

  33. TS

    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?

  34. Penny

    I tried to install kodi on my fire stick but it says did not install. I don’t know why, any suggestions? I did use the 64 bit could that be wrong? I just got my fire tv stick at the beginning of this year

  35. Bob

    I’ve gone to “get ” button and it tells me I do not have a valid billing address. Went to amazon. Com/ mykps and I have billing address. It will not let me go any farther. What’s up??

  36. Beverly

    Hi im trying to load kodi on my fire stick and now all it is doing is showing is showing screen savers need help

  37. Olive

    Hi! I can’t figure out how to add kodi app to the home page, I’d like it there where all my other apps are…also, I can’t get es download manager on firestick. Thanks for taking the time to help.

    1. Bill

      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

  38. Michael

    If you can’t install just reset your fire stick and start over again and go to step by step instruction make sure your spelling is right it will download

  39. Philp

    Hi there trying to download kodi on firestick but will not open please help

  40. Katie

    Downloader just hangs on “Connecting…”

    What can I do? Using the browser will take me to the kodi download page but then will not allow me to select to download the 32 bit… even after enabling JavaScript and reloading the page. This is getting very frustrating :/

  41. Dan Mills

    Good job! Installing Kodi and the plex add-on fixed my direct play failed issue. Plex for the Firestick would require transcoding of all movies causing choppy playback. Thanks for this post.

  42. Kayla Freeman

    My fire tv stick is jailbroke and came with a generic Amazon account. It will not let me install anything including downloader. It says to update payment and address to the generic account. I’m so frustrated and lost. Help!

  43. Stephenie Dorn

    Thank you. This tutorial was a big help installing kodi. I had no problems until I got to the add-ons. I can’t add Exodus. Please help. Thank you.

    1. Tammy Schmid

      Exodus has been replaced with Covenant. It’s the same thing.

  44. kh

    Thanks for providing clear instructions with the screenshots! This is great for someone tech challenged like me.

    You mention using IPVanish. At what point and how do I use it? Should I only use it for the download or do you recommend using all the time?

    Thanks to anyone who can help!

  45. Joe

    Successfully downloaded Kodi however, when I click “launch application” it fails to open and returns back to the kodi screen

  46. Gary

    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

  47. Janine

    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?

    1. Susan Carney

      I always reset my firestick to factory settings and re-install kodi. It has worked for me for all my TV’s (I have 5 of them) 🙂

  48. Jason D

    Hey just what I was looking for!
    You guys are great your steps where perfect to get Kodi going on my firestick! Thanks!

    Please email or add video on adding a free tv source

  50. Kenny

    It keeps saying need to update billing address before being able to download , downloader app ? Help ?

    1. Jac

      Log into your amazon account and updated credit card on file. Your credit card may have expired. Don’t worry it will not bill you for updating.

  51. Patty

    My fire stick dose not give me the app ES explorer…. is there a nother way around? Or why my fire stick is not giving me ES explore ?

    1. Nelson

      Use the downloader application from Fire Stick. Do not need ES Explorer.

  52. Donna jean Brady

    the video is great, I am brand new user to FireStick. I just received from Amazon today (not sure how to tell what version it is, but I did the factory reset after having problems with another video :/. I got all the way to installing the .spinz which it said it did, but instead of going to the greeting box you show here I got a notification of no clear packages found, and right back to the SpinzTV Wizard with a check

  53. LG

    I get to #13 and have no key board to type in the kodi link after http:// How do I get a key board with the remote?

  54. James Johnson

    Im stuck at the download after typing in the Kodi url. Just keeps saying connecting.

    1. Jerome

      Same with me…..I get the Connecting…. Screen and nothing happens after several minutes. How do we resolve this issue??

  55. Geoff

    All of the steps were fine up to the point of installing from the zip file. Once I click on “install from zip file” there are no options there. I’m stuck here. Can you please help me ASAP to find out why there’s are no options in the zip file?

    1. Todd

      I ran into the same problem also last night. I’ve installed Krypton 17.x multiple times and I’ve never had this issue. Any help would be appreciated.

  56. Leon

    Can you tell me how I can get ARMV7A (32Bit) version to install? I followed the direction above as listed and it won’t install.

  57. Dakota443

    I’m stuck at step 13 when I click open in browser I get a message saying amazon does not open browser links

  58. Me

    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?


  59. Sonia

    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!?

  60. Ashley W

    Excellent video tried several videos was not successful until I ran across this one .

    Thanks so much

  61. Sam

    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

    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://

      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.

    2. Bob

      Download the amazon fire tv app on your phone and it will have a keyboard you can use

  62. Paige

    I get all the way to the the box part in the addons, but once I press spins, nothing shows up in the next screen except 2 dots. Install from repository is not there. What am I doing wrong?

  70. Heather

    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)

  71. Nick

  72. John Woodbridge

    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?

  73. Danny

    All I can say is perfect ,perfect ,perfect are you a school teacher you should be can’t get better instructions than this

  74. Sue

    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

    1. Stephanie

      I’m getting same error sue! Have you gotten a response to this?

  75. Nancy

    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?

  76. Mel Perry

    This is a great instructional video! Very easy to understand and follow along. Thanks!

    1. Mary P

      Hi I can’t get kodi to install how did you get it done

  88. Julie

    Great instructions. Followed right the way to the end but want to install Exodus. Can’t work out how to get back to the native Kodi screen to enable me to go into settings and follow your other video to install Exodus. Please help! Thanks

  89. Steve Faderin

    I have tried installs of kodi on amazon firestick using several guidance videos. This was BY FAR the best I’ve ever come across. The clear step-by-step instructions are second to none….great job!!!!

  90. Brandy Cundiff

    PLEASE HELP both on my Fire TV and my Fire Sticks the new ones they just came today which is May 18th 2017 I can download the ES File Explorer then I can download Kodi but once I open Kodi it brings up all of the options such as shown in the picture but each of the icons the windows Linux Mac OS Android all of those things have nothing underneath them therefore I cannot go to the ARM. Do you know how to fix this issue or what is going on. It’s all that it’s doing it with both my Fire TV as well as the new Fire Sticks. Thank you for your help in advance period once I can get to the ARM I can follow the directions from there but I can’t even see those options 🙁

    1. Joshua

      Go to the link for old releases, then click Android, then ARM, then click on the newest, as of now it’s from March.

    2. Ashlee

      Im having the exact same issue! And then i get a “unsupported browser link” message when i try the “open in browser” tab!

      1. feyjga

        I had the same issue.
        I downloaded the file with my laptop. Then i shared the directory with the files. After this you go to ES and connect to the laptopshare. Now you can choose the file and install it.

  91. cj christian

    You are awesome!!! Tremendous video!!! I know nothing and you walked me thru it!!!

  92. Annie

  93. Matt Teague

    This was a great instructional!!! Work fantastic thank you

  94. Paul

    Hey thanks a lot, i bought a new fire stick and it wouldnt download, install couldnt highlight the android etc, tried apps to fire etc, came across your video instructions and bang- sorted. Nice one.

  95. Chip

    Everything was great except for I cant seem to play any content. Any suggestions?

  96. Ken

    Thank you so much your instructions were right on my question is iif I get a add on your provided will I still have my build?

  97. Tom Smith

    I have accidentally removed Kodi from my amazon fire stick via the remote control. Is there a easier way to install it back on or do I need to follow all these instructions
    Thank you

  98. Charlie

    I had tried four other jailbreak instructions and all four had different steps. I was getting tired and ready to give up when I came across this one , I figured I would give it a try . The instructions were very clear , she spoke slow enough that you did not have to back the video up every two seconds. I followed it step by step and every one was right on the money. Try this one and you will not be sorry.

  99. Steph

    Thank you followed every step and got it to work. Thank you again

  100. newzeaman

    I made it to step 12, but there are only the various icons (linux, apple, android, etc) but no visible links below each icon to highlight or select?? It looks slightly different than the screen shot, but basically the same. Am I in the wrong place? Should I try and reload kodi? And if I ever see links below the icons am I suppose to choose the android ARM?

    1. Katie

      I’m having the same problem! Did you ever figure it out?

    2. scott

      had same problem. watch video on top of this page. she shows you how to download “downloader”. this app has a cursor that you use to click on the android icon.

    3. D

      I had to go to Older Versions> Andrioid/ > and only the 16.1 apk would download and install for me

  101. Ayesha Miles

    Thank you so very much for your help. I was gonna be charged $30 to get my firestick broken. It was super easy and you explain in great detail! You are such a big help girl!!! 😃🙋👍💗

  102. Gary

    I got as far as installing Kodi. Then it gives me the option to open. When I go to open it shows the new Kodi screen, then it says “clearing cache” then “preparing first run” then it goes back to the downloader.

  103. Ricky Shaw

    Many thanks to the provider of the walkthrough tutorials. I have messing around with upgrades and builds since Feb 2017. I don’t know how to code but it sounds challenging. Anyway to those who have problems with Kodi …. Go back and start over.😯

  104. Jan

    Getting message
    ‘Text File for builds not formated correctly’

    Cannot see any Krypton Builds

  105. Pam B.

    Thank you so much for your clear and concise instructions! I would hedge never figured it out without your directions.

  106. Kelly Embert

    THANK YOU!!! I previously had this jailbroken for my mother and father before my mother decided to update the system and cause Kodi to fail. This was so easy to follow and works great. I really appreciate you posting this. Thank you again!!!

  107. Beulah

    Purchased fire stick. Says will not open in browser. Please help

  108. Damien

    Im trying to upgrade and I get the kodi webpage to install it and my Amazon remote won’t let me click on any of the platforms to install it! I see a yellow box on all the things I can click on on the website, but I get down to the platforms and it won’t click/highlight them?? Please help!!!!! Someone!

  109. Gail M

    This was a fantastic video…thank you SO much! Can’t wait to try it out!

  110. Mike R

    Has ANYONE figured out why 17.1 won’t load after being installed after this new Amazon update? I was running 17.1 beta, then the Amazon update came last night so I updated to the stable version of 17.1 but now my firestick won’t start Kodi…i got the “initial load” message but then it goes to a black screen. I’d really rather NOT delete and reinstall…i had a really nice customized install of Titan and I don’t want to have to redo it all…even with the Titan backups I’ve saved.

    Anyone figure this out yet?

    1. Sallyf

      This happened to me when I deleted cache. I went into Es explorer, favorites, kodi, download original kodi DL. Came back. Been working ever since

  111. Ron Andrews

    Oh God that was fantastic….it was your soothing voice that got me through this!
    Thank You

  112. me

    old stick, make favorite use http://
    open in browser if needed

    new stick use troy instructions and ‘downloader’

  113. Tina

    It was successful for me however I can not figure out a way to save the app quick link to my home page. I have to go to my settings > manage installed apps > Kodi and launch how do I just have it on the main home screen?

  114. Vance

    Thank you so much! I’m new to Firestick, Android, and Kodi. Could not have done it without you!

  115. Delon

    Perfect option for anyone that was using complete kodi setup before it stopped working for the new version of kodi 17. Great job

  116. Tracy G. Buenrostro

    Just wanted to say thank you so much for posting it saved me a lot of money I didn’t really have to pay someone else to do it so thank you.

  117. Danny

    Hi, help anyone. I thought the video was great and very easy to follow, although something went wrong as it`s not installed. I got to the page where the three dots were highlighted to clear the cache, packages & thumbnails, then after clicking the build menu option, there was no builds in the build menu, the page only showed 4 lines.
    Kodi Version: 17.1
    Save Data Menu
    Long line like this ================
    Text file for builds not formated correctly.
    Any help would be appreciated.


  118. Thomas T5

    This video was awesome, perfect directions even a two year old could follow this. Thank you very much.

  119. Sally

    For people who can’t click on the Android icon:
    – scroll down the webpage until you see the section ‘Older Releases’
    – at the end of the paragraph, ‘here’ is clickable
    – everything after is clickable, you just need to decide which release you need
    – I went to android/arm/old/
    – here you can find the Jarvis 16.1 releases that seem to be recommended

    1. Jessica

      Using your directions, you can go to android, arm, kodi 17.1 🙂 thank you!

    2. Shani

      I’m using the original fire stick. I Went to the older releases as recommended and it’s still not letting me click on it. Any ideas?

    3. newzeaman

      Thank you! Was starting to get worried. I wasn’t able to do 17.1 (but hopefully 16.1 will work)

  120. michelle

    I just watched the entire video and did every step including adding the build. I don’t like the build and need to know how to restore to default. Anyone know how to do it? Please help!

  121. Lisa

    Use to have version 16.1 now updated to 17 but having problems still watching movies like get out (still cam copy) but can get newer movies are fine any tips please.

  122. george foreman

    To remove the bubble at right side
    es file explorer and settings, remove notification bubble

  123. Coops29

    This is seriously the most helpful how too on the internet. I’ve been trying to get kodi on my firestick ALL DAY! Seriously, this is the only you tube video that got me there. Thank you so much!


    Get as far as clicking on the Android app but there is no ARMfile link below it All is shows is Android. The GooglePlay or APK Arm install is missing so there is nothing to click on. Please help – don\t know what to do now

  125. Michael McCurrie

    I get as far as trying to download kodi, but the Web page it brings me to istop not showing any download links. Only the different sources. How do I get the file links to appear?

  126. Dave

    Did Kodi redesign their webpage? I can’t click on the android icon to download ARM. I can if I use a PC but on fire stick.

  127. Karyn tighe

    Brand new firetv with alexa. Can’t access android version to download kodi.

  128. Bailey

    After step 10, entering https:// and navigating to kodi for step 11, instead of being brought to the download page, I’m receiving an error that says “the page you are looking for cannot be found”. I have also tried “http://…” – does anyone know what to do?

    1. Andi

      I’m having a similar problem but after step 10 it takes me to a promo type page for kodi that says “join millions using kodi” & won’t let me scroll for android icon?

      1. The Frenchman

        Your issue is my issue. I can’t cluck the Android icon.

        1. ruth scott

          For this to work, I had to install the downloader and type exactly the same into the browser there. I then put the circle over Arm64bit, clicked it and the kodi download started then I installed it from files on left hand side. Hope this helps

  129. Tuty

    I can’t find kodi 16.1 Jarvis, all the ones I have are 16.0.. I refreshed it to see if I get the 16.1 but nothing.

  130. Dan

    I have the latest fire tv box, just got it today. Did everything exactly like you showed, I get the page you are looking for cannot be found. Any ideas on how to fix this?

  131. Deb

    When I tried to download webpage.. could not be loaded because,,…. net::err_connection_refused. What would I do. This is for Alexa Vic, 802.11ac memo wifi, 1080p he, quad core. Is this amazon fire stick not jail breakable?

  132. Cicily

    I do not have a fire stick. I only have the new firetv. So are there any new directions that you can give people who don’t have the stick? I really would like your help. Thanks.☺️

  133. Jon

    Everything worked perfectly with the current (at least for me) Krypton 17.1 version of Kodi. Like a couple other people have said, there is a little bubble that appears on the right side of the screen in Exodus. Is there any way to get rid of it!? If not then it can definitely be lived with, but it would be nice if it was gone. Any help would be awesome, thanks!

  134. sandra fairman

    after i installed kodi exodus and fusion i still cant watch anything without signing up signing in or pay some dues what else do i need to do so i dont have to pay for all those apps?

  135. Kasy

    I’m trying to add new file source (Fusion) to Kodi, but it keeps giving me error: “Couldn’t retrieve directory information. This could be due to the network not being connected. Would you like to add it anyway?” I click on NO and ensure that the URL is entered correctly, and it is. I click OK again, and it just goes to the File Manager screen and acts as if Fusion is loaded fine.

    If I go ahead and go to Add-Ons > Install from Zip File and choose Exodus, it installs. However, if I click on Install from Repository, next, and try installing Exodus, it gives me the message: “the dependency on script.module.metahandler version.”

    Subsequently, it’s also not letting me go into any repository, even the Kodi Add-on repository.
    This is installed on a brand new Amazon Fire Stick – just bought it today – and I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling Fusion, Kodi, and resetting the firestick. My internet is working fine and Kodi works fine on my laptop.

    Any thoughts on what may be going on?

    1. Kasy

      I figured it out; well, I at least got it installed. It wasn’t working with the new Krypton version. I installed Jarvis and it worked perfectly!

  136. Paul

    When I load Kodi I get this Message which says “Your library is currently empty. In order to populate it with your personal media,”………..

  137. Kim

    I got all the way to the end, and instead of Kodi being installed I am getting a message of App not installed. All instructions were followed step by step as laid out. What do I do now?

    1. Ray

      Hi Kim I’m having the same problem did you figure it out??

  138. Dave Rusch

    Followed instructions to the letter. After completing all the steps I clicked on my Kodi icon and all I get is a blank screen. Help?

    1. Brian McCarthy

      I have the same issue. Everything loads, then starts to fire up for first time use, then the screen just goes black and nothing happens.

    2. Andy

      Open Es explorer click on the android robot with the word app and click to open click to kodi and click to open. Permission will open go to full network access and click it

      1. Jane

        I can find this, but none of the options are highlighted, so I can’t click on full access network.
        What do I do now?

  139. Nat

    When i get to Kodi, all i have is Kodi v17.1 “Krypton” version. There is no Jarvis. Suggestions?

  140. Bob s

    I just received the new fire tv stick. Followed all you structions got to install to zip file went to fusion then click begin here and only one line came up plug in indigo 1.0.2zip. I can’t got to wizard. What should I do ?

      1. marsh

        Load Indigo. It’s the new configuration wizard. Works well.

  141. Bea

    Current release: Kodi v17.1 “Krypton” Release Candidate.

    Will this hack work for “Kodi v17.1 ‘Krypton’ Release’ “

  142. Sally McDaid

    Installed both, but it just asks for files videos etc…. should I have done something else so I can see tv, netflix etc options….? many thanks

    1. sal

      same issue thinking i made a mistake in buying fire stix. seems to be a big waste of money.

  143. Michael Washington

    I also got kodi 17 and don’t have install from zip. I am stuck and dont know if anything works. I need some assistance that would be appreciated. Thanks

  144. Artie

    I got kodi 17 loaded on newer stick works great. Only thing is i now how small circle on right side in middle is there a way to remove that cirlce in settings or something? Thanks

    1. Alex

      I have the same little circle on the right side. Did you figure out how to get rid of it. Or am I stuck with it?

      1. Bernie Allan

        Its in the config of es explorer. Something like, disable annoying little widget

  145. Edna

    To find Jarvis 16.1 you have to continue clicking Down through the kodi webpage. Towards the bottom there is an option to click an older version. in case you have trouble scrolling the screen With the remote, You can open any URL that leads directly to any .apk file with es explorer instead of trying to navigate web pages.

  146. John schipani

    I can download Kodi until it gets to where you’re supposed to download Jarvis only problem is Jarvis does not exist on my Version I have 17.0 krypton. Please help.

  147. Terryll Bright

    I got kodi and my build on but it kept kicking me out to the Amazon homescreen!

  148. Jeanette

    I get as far as installing kodi the first time and when i git install the 2nd time its says it cant be installed. Could someone help me please.

  149. Kerry

    Works perfectly! Thank you! How can I add Exodus via Kodi to my recent file? A short cut would be great.

  150. Jesse Richardson

    Susan and Bryan,

    Did you follow step #3 and turn on the function that allows the device to install apps from unknown sources?
    Settings > Device > Developer Options > Apps from unknown sources

    1. susan

      I got ES open but i wont let me install kodi….says I don’t have permission to install unknown apps.

      I’m lost.

      1. Tom

        You need to go to ‘Settings’ and enable the ability to install from unknown sources.

    2. grltalk

      You don’t need to use ES FE on the new Fire Sticks. Use Downloader and the included browser. Use the TroyPoint instructions.

  151. Daisy Stotts

    Followed instruction word for word… worked great for me! ??????

  152. Terri Gonzalez

    I got to the last part of installing ARM….but I get a message saying it’s blocking downloads from unknown sources. I think it’s because of the update.

  153. Melissa

    Worked perfectly! I did have to open in browser as the instructions warned I might have to do. But it worked! Thank you for the easy, step by step instructions. Now I just need to figure out how to get the add ons I want and need!

  154. joan smith

    help….I have the program but not the movies; that the only way I can explain it…..I was following the u tube video and somewhere; actually when he named the path is where I got lost…can u help me??? Also if I erase kodi and the files that are there will that allow me to install kodi?

    1. Janet

      You have to install the add on as well to get movies.. Xodus is how you watch content

  155. paul e

    i followed those instructions but got a message “App not installed”.
    Can anyone advise why and what I need to do to install kodi???

    1. Sykgaiden

      I get the same message when trying to install anything. Someone said reset to factory device and then do it. Idk looking for alternate options before i do that..

  156. Angela Estlack

    If you are using the original fire TV stick and you want to install Cody where are the instructions for that install? Also, can you initiate the install on and iOS device or does it have to be on a Mac or Windows device?

  157. Woody

    I seem to have a newer version (purchased Dec 2016) and although I have made it through the fusion add on, I do not have an “install from zip” option in my menu. So I am now stuck. Is there a “newer ” how to video that addresses the latest version?

    1. Jerriel Hale

      Tried but keep getting error message cloudflare what do i do about that when https url

  158. dave rollinson

    hi I have done the following word for word but when i click to open .kodi i get the error that it is not associated with my amazon account? thanks in advance

    1. Bert

      I get the same message but that doesn’t stop Kodi from working. That’s all it is…a message

    2. Kym

      I got as far as clicking on the three dots then got a message that “Amazon Fire TV does not open browser links. try opening URL in the web browser of another device”. How does that help?

      1. ruth scott

        For this to work, I had to install the downloader and type exactly the same into the browser there. I then put the circle over Arm64bit, clicked it and the kodi download started then I installed it from files on left hand side. Hope this helps
