Jailbreaking your Amazon Fire TV device has gotten easier over time as more and more methods are created to do so. The most common method in the past has been to use the Downloader App for Amazon Fire TV. This app has been instrumental in helping millions of people jailbreak their Amazon Fire TV devices. But I would like to show you the fastest and easiest way to get up and running quickly.
Always use a VPN when streaming media online
Your IP is: 18.104.22.168 - Secure Your Connection
Stop your ISP and your government from spying on your activity. Use a VPN to protect your privacy. A VPN is an essential tool when you are using any free or low-cost streaming application or service. Especially if you are using a jailbroken Fire TV or Fire Stick or Android box. ALWAYS use a VPN if you want the best streaming experience, the best selection of media and don't want your ISP to slow you down or shut you down. I recommend IPVanish VPN for all my clients and I use it on all my devices.

While the Downloader App is great to get started, it can be cumbersome to use to install apps. I decided to make things easier for you and sat down and created my own little “app store” for my KodiAmerica.com readers. I’m calling it the “KodiAmerica.com Jailbreak App Vault” It isn’t a complicated solution, but it will make your life a lot easier when it comes to jailbreaking your Amazon Fire TV device.
Installing the KodiAmerica.com Jailbreak App Vault
First, you will need to install the Filelinked app. This is the one time you will need to use the Downloader App for Amazon Fire TV. If you don’t have the Downloader App installed, you can learn how to do that in my tutorial Install the Downloader app on Fire TV Devices. Once you have the Downloader App installed, you simply open it and enter this web address in the space provided and click GO. Type this exactly as shown here. https://get.droidadmin.com/. That is a direct download link and will download it onto your device.
I made a short video that also shows how to get the KodiAmerica.com Jailbreak App Vault installed.
Once you have it installed, you just have to open the app. The only thing you need to do here is to input my unique code.
Once you have entered the code in the space provided and clicked Continue, you will see all the files that are available for download. I will try my best to keep it current, so check back often for new versions of files and new applications.
DISCLAIMER: I take no responsibility for these files. I am not the developer. However, I do install each of them and test them thoroughly. The files I make available for download are the actual apps I use in my lab and at my home.
At this point, there are a couple directions you can go. You can choose to install Kodi if that is what you prefer, or you can install one of the newer standalone video apps such as Titanium TV, BeeTV, TeaTV, Stremio, Morph TV, etc.
Install IPVanish VPN
Installing IPVanish VPN Service is easy. The application is available in the Amazon App Store on Fire TV devices. Just do a search for IPVanish and in a few clicks, you will be up and running with your new secure connection. No matter what device you are using, you can be sure there is an IPVanish application available in the app stores of all those devices.

Select the Open button to launch the IPVanish app
You will first be prompted to enter your IPVanish Username and Password to login to the application, please make sure to select the Remember Me box so you don’t have to enter it each time then select LOGIN
Once you are logged in, you can choose a location and click the CONNECT button or you can go to the options to select a specific server
Once you are connected, you can go back to your home screen and all of your applications will be routed through the VPN and your data will be sent over the secure connection. Now you will be protected and your privacy safeguarded when using streaming apps.
How to Install Kodi on Amazon Fire TV devices
First I will cover the installation of Kodi. Scroll down in the App Vault until you see Kodi v18.0 Leia. This is the latest version of Kodi. Once you see that the little download icon is highlighted for Kodi v18.0 Leia, click it to start the download.
You will see a little message pop up on the left saying that the download has started and Kodi will download.
Once the download has finished, you will see that the icon to the right has changed from a download icon to a little play arrow. Click this to begin the installation.
You will be asked if you want to install Kodi or cancel. It will also list all the permissions that Kodi needs to run. Kodi is a very complex application and requires a lot of access to your device in order to function properly. Click Install to continue.
Kodi will begin installing
Once Kodi v18.0 Leia has been installed, you will see the following screen. Choose Done for now so we can go back and delete the downloaded file to save space.
Once back on the App Vault main screen, hit the back button. You will be asked if you are sure you want to exit. Click on YES
Install the No Limits Magic Build on Kodi
Now that you have installed Kodi and activated your VPN, you will want to install a Kodi build. Here is a great video from my YouTube channel that shows you how to install the No Limits Magic Build on Kodi v18 Leia. No Limits Magic Build is my personal favorite build.
The second method I want to cover is to install Stremio instead of Kodi. If movies and TV shows are your things, then you will be super happy with the slick interface and great content available with Stremio. There are other great apps as well and you can read about them in m other articles. But Stremio is my go-to application for movies and TV shows, so I will show you how to install that.
Open up the KodiAmerica Jailbreak App Vault that you installed at the beginning of this article. You will see Stremio on the list. Scroll down until you have highlighted the little download icon beside Stremio and click it.
Stremio will start downloading
When the download has finished, the download icon changes to like a PLAY button. Click it.
You will be asked if you want to install Stremio. Click INSTALL
Stremio will begin installing
Once Stremio is finished installing, you will be asked if you want to open it. Click OPEN
You will see the Stremio splash screen
You will be asked if you want to allow the application to send anonymous error reporting data. It is up to you whether you want to do this. I choose not to just because I can’t be sure what information is being sent.
Then you will be asked to log in or register. Honestly, you can put any email address in there to register. Just be sure to remember what you used so if you have more than one Stremio installation, all your favorites and watched history will sync bacross every device that you have Stremio installed. If you have already created an account, choose LOG IN at the bottom of the screen.
Go ahead and get logged in with whatever method you choose. I won’t go through all the ways because it is pretty self-explanatory.
Once you are logged in, you will see three little lines at the top left corner of the screen. Use your mouse or remote to click there to bring up the menu. We will need to install some add-ons, so scroll down and click on Add-ons.
You will see a list of the official Stremio add-ons. What we are interested in are the community add-ons. So, let’s switch over to view those. Select where it says Official and click on it. Then select Community from the list that pops up.
Once you have selected Community from that list, you will see a screen with the Community add-ons.
It is very simple to install an add-on. Just scroll down and click install on any of them. Some of the add-ons I recommend you go ahead and install are Juan Carlos Torrents, PirateBay, RAR, Zooqle, and Popcorn. If you want Spanish language content, then install IBERIAN as well. I’ll install the Juan Carlos Torrents add-on as an example.
Scroll down until you have highlighted the Install button on the Juan Carlos Torrents add-on in the list of Community add-ons. Click on Install
You will be asked if you are sure you want to install it. Confirm by clicking Install
You will see that, in the add-ons list, the button for Juan Carlos 2 has changed from Install to Uninstall. That means it is installed. To uninstall the add-on, simply click the Uninstall button. You can install and uninstall add-ons as many times as you like.
Continue to install PirateBay, RAR, Zooqle, Popcorn, and IBERIAN in the same manner. Feel free to install any of the others as well, but my recommended add-ons are all you need. Once you are finished installing add-ons, click the back button to go to the home screen of Stremio.
Select one of the movies from the home screen that you would like to watch. In this case, I chose The Avengers. Click on it to bring up the details page.
The details page contains all the information about the movie as well as a list of streams available. You can also see which add-on found the stream. You can see that the top one is the Juan Carlos Torrents add-on, and there are others below it. Zooqle is very good quality. Click on the stream you want to play.
Stremio will start downloading bits of the torrent file until it has enough to start streaming. It uses the actual movie title logo as the progress bar. I think that’s a cool touch. When the logo is fully lit up, the movie will start to play.
That’s about as easy as it gets. Stremio has a nice interface with lots of ways to find the movies and TV shows you want to watch. You can sort the media and search for movies and TV shows. You can add media to your library which is a lot like adding to your favorites in other applications. Overall Stremio takes streaming videos to the next level. But don’t risk using any of the applications in my articles without a VPN.
