What Makes KFire TV’s Install Kodi on Fire Stick 2017 Method Different?
- No Phone, PC, and No ES File Explorer is required.
- We use a bit.ly shortlink to simplify the “address-entering” part of the download process, saving you time
- If the primary app we use to download Kodi onto the FireStick doesn’t work for you, there are alternatives that are just as easy, like an app called “FireDL” you’ll find under the “Top Free” sub-section of “Apps” in your Fire TV’s homescreen.
How to Find Alternate Downloaders for Fire TV & FireStick
Try the steps below if Method #1 (above) doesn’t work for you.
- From the FireStick / FireTV homescreen, go to Settings > System > Developer Options.
- Then Enable ADB Debugging and Apps from Unknown Sources. Now return to the Fire TV homescreen.
- From the FireTV home screen, use the up and down buttons on the Fire TV remote to select Apps.
- After “Apps” is selected (use the Center button to SELECT the Apps menu), use the down button to move to the “Top Free” sub-menu underneath “Apps”
- Once “Top Free” is selected, use the left and right buttons on the FireStick / Fire TV remote to find “File Commander – File Manager” and “FireDL“. The FireDL app should be your go-to if the Download app (method in the section above) doesn’t work.
- Select one of the apps above – we recommend FireDL. Downloader is the easiest, but if that doesn’t work for you then try FireDL.
- After you install the free Fire TV downloader app of your choice, it’s time to Open the downloader app you installed.
- Once your downloader app is Open, use it to Enter “http://bit.ly/2hD04qA” (the middle character is a ZERO – not a capital letter “o” – and Enter it without the quotes).
- After you enter the address above, find the Download button in the downloader app and select it to download Kodi.
- Once Kodi downloads, Open the File and choose “Install“.
- Now that Kodi is installed, launch Kodi by going to the Fire TV home screen, then select the Kodi icon under Apps.

- Install Kodi on FireStick ES File Explorer (Method #2)
- Install Kodi on FireStick Android Sideload (Method #3)

If the primary install Kodi on Fire Stick 2017 method didn’t work for you, try an alternate “downloader” app, such as FireDL. See above for the directions to install Kodi with FireDL.
After Kodi is installed, you should install TV Addons or install Kodi Beast build. TV Addons are easier to install, because Kodi builds take longer to download and can be finnicky. So if you’re not experienced with Kodi, then install TV addons using Config Wizard. That’s the easiest way to install TV Addons for inexperienced Kodi users. However, if you’re an experienced Kodi user, install Kodi builds to get a full Kodi package all set up on your FireStick or FireTV.
