Amazon’s Fire TV Stick is a brilliant place for Kodi. This small USB stick plugs into an HDMI port on your TV and is the simplest, cheapest and most convenient way of getting Kodi. Even better, the Fire TV Stick runs a custom version of Android, which means it’s compatible with most apps, including Kodi. Note that these instructions will also work on other Amazon Fire TV devices, not just the Stick.
Step-by-Step Process to install Kodi on the Amazon Fire TV Stick
Step1:- Enable apps from unknown sources and ADB
Plug your Amazon Fire TV stick into your TV and plug the USB power cable into a
spare USB port or use the power adaptor. Go to Settings, Device, Developer options.
Find Apps from unknown sources, which should be switched off, and turn it on, then
say yes in the pop-up box. Do the same thing for the ADB debugging option, which
is in the same menu.
Step2:- Find your IP address
You need your Fire TV Stick’s IP address to continue. You can get this by going to
Settings, Device, About, Network.
Note down the numbers listed underneath IP address, as you’ll need these later to send the installation file to your media streamer from your computer.
Step3:- Download Kodi
On your PC, go to kodi.tv/download. Scroll down and click the Android icon to
bring up a pop-up box. From this list, click the ARMV7A (32BIT) link.
This will download the installer .pkg file to your computer, which you’ll need later.
Step4:- Run adbLink
The easiest way to install Kodi is to use adbLink, which you can download for your PC for free from jocala.com. This software sends an installation package over your home network to your Fire TV Stick. Once you’ve installed the software, run adbLink and click New. Enter a description – any name will do – then enter the IP address that you noted down in Step 2. Click Install APK, browse to the file you downloaded in Step 3 and click Install when prompted.
You’ll see at the bottom right of the screen the message ‘ADB
Running’. Once this completes, Kodi is installed on your Fire TV Stick.

Step5:- Launch Kodi
From your Fire TV Stick’s home page, go to Your Apps and Games, and you’ll see that Kodi is in the list. Just select the file to run it, and you can launch the media player. After you’ve launched the software once, it will appear in the Recent section, too.
