How to Jailbreak FireStick and Fire TV
In this tutorial, you will learn how to jailbreak your FireStick and download popular streaming applications that allow you to watch movies, TV shows, live TV, and sports without any cost. This method works with various Fire TV devices such as FireStick Max, FireStick 4K, FireStick Lite, and Fire TV Cube.
The Amazon FireStick is widely known as a popular streaming device. By using this affordable yet feature-rich device, you can transform any regular HDMI-enabled TV into a smart TV effortlessly.
With the FireStick, you can stream videos from numerous online media and entertainment services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, and various TV networks.
However, there is a significant drawback. Accessing content through these entertainment services requires a subscription fee. Moreover, you might find their monthly charges to be expensive. This is where jailbreaking the FireStick comes into play.
Jailbreaking allows you to acquire third-party streaming applications that grant free access to all your favorite movies, TV shows, live TV channels, sports, and other content.
What does Jailbreaking a Firestick mean?
Jailbreaking a FireStick is a straightforward procedure that grants you the ability to unlock your device and overcome the limitations imposed on it, providing access to a vast array of online content available on the internet.
The process of jailbreaking involves the installation of third-party applications and services that are not officially provided through the Amazon App Store. It should be noted that jailbreaking does not cause any harm to the device, but instead allows you to install virtually any app you desire, granting you unrestricted streaming without any boundaries.
By jailbreaking your FireStick, you gain effortless access to a wide range of online streaming content, unleashing the device’s full potential.
With a jailbroken FireStick, you have the freedom to watch anything you desire, be it movies, TV series, live TV, sports, or virtually any other form of content. You can instantly enjoy your preferred entertainment whenever you wish with a jailbroken FireStick.
Is Jailbreaking a FireStick Safe and Legal?
Jailbreaking the FireStick is both SAFE and LEGAL, as long as you refrain from streaming copyrighted content.
Unlike jailbreaking iOS devices or hacking Android phones, jailbreaking the FireStick is secure because it does not require any modifications to the device’s operating system or system files.
Jailbreaking simply involves enabling the installation of third-party apps that are not available in the Amazon App Store. It does not involve any actual programming of your apps.
Furthermore, jailbreaking does not void the warranty of the device. In fact, Amazon themselves allow the sideloading of these applications.
However, it is important to exercise caution because you are installing apps that have not been officially approved by Amazon, and their credibility and safety may not be guaranteed.
To protect your privacy, it is highly recommended to use a Virtual Private Network (VPN). This ensures the security of your information and sensitive data, as the intentions of third-party app developers are not known.
The majority of the jailbreak apps are unsafe.
When using these jailbreak apps, users should always use a VPN to protect themselves.

Step to Jailbreaking a FireStick
To enable free streaming on FireStick devices, jailbreaking entails installing third-party APKs. These apps do not exist in the Amazon App Store.
Unlike the way you download apps directly from your android device, Amazon does not allow you to do so. A facilitating application is required to install third-party streaming apps.
Downloader is the name of the app from which we will install all of our jailbreak apps. This is how.
Step 1: Installing Downloader APK on FireStick
Please keep in mind that your home screen may look slightly different depending on the version of the Fire TV OS you’re using.
- Navigate to your Amazon Fire TV Stick’s home screen.
- Scroll to Find and click on Search
- Type Downloader and scroll down to click it
- Click on the orange Downloader icon
- Click on Download and wait for it to complete installation
- Click Open to launch the Downloader app
Step 2: Allowing installation of unknown apps
To begin the jailbreak process, you must first change a setting on the Fire TV Stick / Cube.
- To open Settings, click the gear or cog icon in the middle bar on the far right.
- Scroll down and select My Fire TV
Note: If you don’t see Developer Options, go to Settings > My Fire TV > About.
- Select Fire TV Stick and click it 7 times to enable Developer Options.
- Switch On the ADB Debugging (if you are using the 4K Max, go back one step to Developer Options)
- Click Install unknown apps
- Click Downloader and turn it On
That’s it! You have successfully ‘jailbroken’ your Firestick device and can download any free streaming app.
Step 3: Installing jailbreak apps
Now that we have jailbroken our Firestick, we can now download any app we want.
The first app we can download is called Kodi.
Kodi is a popular app that unlocks a world of endless entertainment that allows you to watch your favorite movies, TV shows, TV channels, sports, children’s content, and much more.
Kodi Addons and Builds allow you get access to stream anything you want and we can now easily download Kodi using the Downloader app that we have just installed.
Here are the steps:
- Open Downloader
- Click on the URL box
- Type 439895 and click Go
- Click on Install at the bottom right
- Go back one to delete the installation apk as you no longer need it
- Open Kodi
And now you have successfully downloaded and installed Kodi on your Firestick device!
Once you have completed installing Kodi, open it and familiarize yourself with the app as this will probably your only go-to app for entertainment.
But first you will need to install Addons or Builds to get direct access to movies, tv shows, live tv, sports, basically whatever you want. You can start with addons first and later you can install Builds to give your Kodi a different look. Click here for Addons and how to install them.
