    Amazon Fire TV app


    This is the app that I use to sideload Kodi to my Fire TV Stick. Check the source link below for the changelog. I used an older version of it, but sure that the newer version works as well. Chances are that you cannot root your FTV stick, I know I cant root mine so I don't play around with that stuff. The only thing I use this tool for is to send apps and other files to my fire tv stick. As a matter of fact, I don't even use anything below the Amazon Fire TV logo, I just use the top part of the app. I did use the screen shot function a few times so I know that works.


    Update 5-27-17: Amazon has blocked all versions of Kodi 17.2 and lower, it is now mandatory to install Kodi 17.3 due to a security risk that would allow hackers to take over your device.

    You need to manually install Kodi to an Amazon Fire TV device, download the Android ARMv7 32bit from the Kodi website.

    If you want Kodi on a phone or tablet then just download the latest version of Kodi from the google app store.

    The Windows 10 app store has a flawed version of kodi, if you want Kodi on your PC then download it from the Kodi website.
    I tried Kodi from the Microsoft app store and it seems broken, don't use it.


    Amazon Fire TV app link to source website, has ads in the download link, the author of the app
    is responsible for the ads, the kodi team has nothing to do with ads.

    I had to update the first post to support Kodi 17.3, Amazon FTV has block all version lower then Kodi 17.3. Apparently there was a security risk in some media players and you should update to the latest version. I know that Kodi and VLC are effected, others may need to be updated to.

    Check Point researchers revealed a new attack vector which threatens millions of users worldwide – attack by subtitles. By crafting malicious subtitle files, which are then downloaded by a victim’s media player, attackers can take complete control over any type of device via vulnerabilities found in many popular streaming platforms, including VLC, Kodi (XBMC), Popcorn-Time and strem.io. We estimate there are approximately 200 million video players and streamers that currently run the vulnerable software, making this one of the most widespread, easily accessed and zero-resistance vulnerability reported in recent years.
