Mobdro is absolutely one of the best live TV streaming applications for your Fire TV device available anywhere. But the main problem with Mobdro is the huge and very obtrusive ads. I know some that struggle through the ads to watch, and others, like me choose to use a modified ad-free version. The downside to the ad-free version is that automatic updates have to be disabled as well to prevent it from updating itself and overwriting the modified version.
Those are the pros and cons of using the modified vs official version. But what if you could have the best of both worlds. Now you can! Since the main issue with the official version is the ads, then let’s block them. Using a new ad-blocking software called Blokada, you can enjoy all the convenience of an auto-updating official version of Mobdro, with the ad-free experience of the modified version. Although this article is written for those with jailbroken Fire TV Sticks and Fire TV devices, this will work on any android device.
Let’s get down to it. First off, if you are not using a VPN, you are either crazy, or you just don’t know. Either way, go ahead and spend the few bucks to get a VPN and get it up and running before you use the Internet. Especially if you are using ANY of the apps in ANY of my articles. And to make it easier for you, I have negotiated a huge 57% discount off of IPVanish VPN service just for my readers. It’s the best; it’s the fastest, you know the deal. Click here to jump on this limited time 57% discount on IPVanish VPN service. Now that you are all secured, let’s move on.
First of all, if you have any other version of Mobdro installed, let’s get it uninstalled.
Long-press the HOME button on the Fire TV remote
You will see a screen come up as shown below. Click on Apps.
You will see a list of all the apps that are installed on your Amazon Fire TV device.
Scroll down until you have Mobdro selected and then click the Menu button on your remote
When you do, you will see a little menu on the bottom right side of the screen. Scroll down in that menu until Uninstall is selected and click on it.
You will notice that the Mobdro icon has disappeared.
If you don’t already have the KodiAmerica.com Jailbreak App Vault install, I recommend installing it at this time. The instructions are in the article How to Install the Kodiamerica.com Jailbreak App Vault. Once you have that up and going, continue on.
From the Apps screen, choose the icon for the KodiAmerica Jailbreak App Vault. It’s really called FileLinked and it’s a great little program. Click on that icon.
If you have already been using the Jailbreak App Vault, then my code will already be entered into the code field. Check to be sure it is correct, and if it isn’t, then enter the code 47356537
Once you are sure the code is entered correctly, press CONTINUE to enter the KodiAmerica.com Jailbreak App Vault.
Scroll down in the list until you see Mobdro. Click on the download icon and Mobdro will begin downloading.
You can see the download progress.
When the download has completed, the download icon changes to an install icon. Click on the install icon to begin installing Mobdro
You will be shown the list of permissions that Mobdro requires. Scroll down until you see the option to install and click Install
Mobdro will begin installing
When Mobdro is finished installing, select Done and click on it.
You will be back at the Jailbreak App Vault apps list screen again.
Repeat the process for the Blokada app.
Click DONE to go back to the App Vault
Press the back button on your Fire TV remote to exit out of the App Vault app list screen. You will be asked if you want to leave. Click Yes
Now, back at the Jailbreak App Vault code screen, use your Fire TV remote to move up to the top of the screen and click on the little trash can icon up at the top right.
You will be asked if you want to empty the trash. Click Yes
Then click the back button again to completely exit the KodiAmerica.com Jailbreak App Vault. Press the home button on your remote to go back to the home screen of your Amazon Fire TV device. Then long-press the home button again like you did before and choose apps. Let’s go back to the apps screen and look for Blokada. It will most likely be at the bottom of the list because you installed it last. Click on it.
You will see an info screen when you first start Blokada. It explains the settings that are already set for you. Those are all good, so just click Continue.
You will then be sent to the Blokada home screen. Your cursor is already on Notifications.
Click once to turn off notifications.
Click DOWN once on your remote one time and you will have the Power button selected at the bottom right of the screen. Click it and it will turn sort of pink or orange as Blokada starts up.
Once Blokada starts up, the Power button will turn orange.
Blokada is all set. You won’t really ever have to open it again. It just sits in the background and blocks ads. That’s exactly what we want it to do.
Now, go to your apps screen again by long-pressing the home button. This time we will want to open Mobdro. So, click on its icon.
Then you will see the Mobdro Main Menu
Here you will see recommendations, etc. Let’s scroll down to the channels menu to see what’s on.
There are tons of live channels to watch here. As far as free IPTV solutions, Mobdro is certainly one of the best ones available. For this example, open ABC.
It will buffer a bit in order to fill up the buffer, and then start playing. Looks like the news is on.
Now you can enjoy an ad-free Mobdro experience on your Amazon Fire TV device while still enjoying the automatic updates that the official Mobdro provides. Remember, only use these apps if you have a high-quality VPN installed and active on your device. IPVanish is the only way to go in my professional opinion.
