How to Side Load Kodi on Amazon Fire Stick – Tutorial

Share Button

If you have an Amazon Fire Stick but want access to hundreds of free streaming apps you’ll need Kodi. With ES File Explorer removed from the Amazon Store, you’ll have to use your computer to “side load” Kodi onto your computer.

Disclaimer: A Kodi build on a Amazon Fire Stick can give you access to tons of legal content but also to illegal live TV and movie streams. CTK does not condone or promote illegal actions, so, hey, just be responsible and whatnot. If you get into the illegal content, fry your products, quit your job from an HBO addiction, that’s on you.

Now this should be relatively painless process but if you have hiccups or questions feel free to hit us up on twitter.

Here are the tools you’ll need to install Kodi from your computer.

1: An Amazon Fire Stick or Fire TV
2: AdbLink (Formerly adbFire App for your Windows PC or Mac
3: The Kodi APK or AppStarter APK (We recommend using AppStarter for easy updating in the future)
